AL QAEDA THREATENS NEW WAVE OF TERROR ATTACKS
CLAIM ISRAEL, SAUDI ARABIA, GULF COUNTRIES NOW IN THEIR SIGHTS
From the Washington Times:
Al Qaeda yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks with threats of more assaults as the world remembered the day in solemn observances and some expressions of resentment over the U.S. response to the attacks.
"We have repeatedly warned you and offered a truce with you. Now we have all the legal and rational justification to continue to fight you until your power is destroyed or you give in and surrender," al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri said in one of three videos the group released yesterday.
"The days are pregnant and giving birth to new events," he said and warned that Persian Gulf countries and Israel would be al Qaeda's next targets.
He accused the governments of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia of supporting Israel's war against Hezbollah in Lebanon.
