Zawahiri has new video: `Bush is an alchoholic and a liar..'

In a new 40-minute tape released by Al Qaeda's As-Sahab media arm titled, “Tremendous Lessons and Events in the Year 1427 AH,”* al Qaeda #2 Ayman al-Zawahiri rips President Bush. He claims that Bush is an alcoholic and addicted to drinking, lying, and gambling. He also has harsh words for Bush's opponents, finding no difference between Republicans and Democrats in the U.S.

"Bush suffers from an addictive personality, and was an alcoholic. I don't know his present condition (Americans know best about that, as they are experts in alcohol and addiction to it), but the one who examines his personality finds that he is addicted to two other faults: lying and gambling. As regards lying, his record is well known, and he has gone down in history as one of its most notorious liars...

The tape appears to be divided into two parts - the first portion of the tape seems to be addressed to America while the second half of the tape appears directed at the Islamic Ummah worldwide.

He tells Americans public the strategy of Al Qaeda has shifted. Rather than group actions, al Qaeda will utilize individual Muslims already in the host countries. al Zawahiri calls this the Jihadi Intifada.

"The first matter is that you are not facing individuals or organizations, but are facing the Jihadi Intifada of the angry, alert Muslim Ummah. Therefore, you are just wasting your time and effort by claiming to seek to eliminate this person or that or such-and-such group or organization.

As for the Democrats in America, I tell them:

The people chose you due to your opposition to Bush's policy in Iraq, but it appears that you are marching with him to the same abyss, and it appears that you will take part with him in the defeat and certain failure, with God's permission. And the American people shall discover that you are all one side of the same coin of tyranny, criminality and failure; that failure which – by the grace of God – has neutralized the endeavors of the traitors who entered Kabul and Baghdad on the backs of American tanks, and has dashed their hopes as they see the Mujahideen come closer and closer to victory, which has led them to urgently appeal to America for help and implore it to continue to occupy their lands and raise the banners of the Cross over their heads."

Pretty self-explanatory.

This, like Ahmadinejad's letter, is yet another declaration of jihad on the West. Particularly noteworthy is the appeal to the Muslim umma that we have allowed to relocate here to turn on their host countries.
