And yet another hit on Jihad TV -Zawahiri goes postal!


Al Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahri appeared on Jihad TV (AKA al Jazeera) in a particularly angry appearence. Obviously, just missing being turned into roadkill by a Hellfire missle seems to have upset him a wee bit..not to mention the 4 al Qaeda leaders who weren't so lucky.Bush 'butcher': al-Qaeda video - World - smh.com.au

You could practically see the spittle flying from his mouth as he called President Bush a "butcher" and a "failure", and also had some unkind words for British PM Blair. "Butcher of Washington, you are not only defeated and a liar, but also a failure. You are a curse on your own nation," he said, referring to Bush.

Zawahiri said the United States had ignored an offer from al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden for `an honorable truce' and would face further attacks.

At one point Zawahiri invited Mr Bush to convert to Islam and saids his sins would then be forgiven!

And of course, ol' Z then tried to emphasize how safe and popular he was...

"Bush, do you know where I am? I am among the Muslim masses, enjoying God's blessing of their support, care, generosity and protection."

He also directed his speech to the families of British and US troops. "You, American mother, if the Pentagon calls to tell you that your son is coming home in a coffin, then remember George Bush. And you, British wife, if the Defence Department calls you to say that your husband is returning crippled and burnt, remember Tony Blair," he said.

Somehow, it doesn't sound like the sort of speech somebody on the winning side of things would give, now does it?

I give it 6 on a scale of ten, with a couple of points off for serious overacting. Though Hollywood would probably give Zawahiri an Oscar, just for calling President Bush few nasty names.
