Kill Al-Zawahiri

My contacts in Afghanistan and Pakistan insist the attack came from extreme anti-American groups in Saudi Arabia and were planned in Germany and Spain.  Taliban had nothing to do with 9/11.  Neither did Iraq, as the Bush administration falsely claimed.  Hamid Gul, the former head of ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence service, told me that the Saudis were behind 9/11.

It is unsettling to see a democratic government like the United States beating its chest over the high-tech murder of a retired jihadist, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.

The 71-year-old al-Zawahiri succeeded the assassinated Osama bin Laden as chief of the anti-US underground group, al-Qaeda.  The mild-mannered, Egyptian had been a local doctor in Cairo, when the brutal secret police of US-backed dictator, Hosni Mubarak, arrested him.  Though al-Zawahiri was not directly involved in the opposition, he was savagely tortured by Mubarak’s secret police, who were directly advised and financially assisted by US security experts and intelligence.

I never met Dr. al-Zawahiri, but I spent long hours with his teacher and mentor, Sheik Abdullah Azzam – who was also bin Laden’s spiritual guide and instructor.  Call him the father of jihad.

After torture and jail, Dr. al-Zawahiri became radicalized, joining Osama bin Laden’s underground movement that was dedicated to ousting American influence from the Muslim world.  Al-Zawahiri later joined bin Laden in Afghanistan, a free-fire zone for Islamic jihadists.  According to Washington, any groups opposing US presence in the Mideast were without doubt `terrorists.’  Israel developed this terminology to discredit all Palestinian resistance groups.

The US claims Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri were the architects of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.  But bin Laden and al-Zawahiri denied being involved though they applauded the bloody attacks.  Bin Laden stated the attack on New York was payback for Israel’s destruction of PLO-occupied West Beirut in its 1982 invasion of Lebanon.  No one in the West paid any attention.

To this day, I question if bin Laden and his group were actually behind 9/11.  Tapes of bin Laden discussing the attack on New York shown on CNN turned out to be poorly made fakes.
