Al-Qaeda Co-Founder Blames Bush – NOT
Someone Has Had Time To Think It Through
From Don Surber, this remarkable quote from the co-founder of Al-Qaeda, Sayyid Imam al-Sharif, reported in the UK Telegraph. “Every drop of blood that was shed or is being shed in Afghanistan and Iraq is the responsibility of bin Laden and Zawahiri and their followers.” He did not blame Former Pres. Bush, or Former Vice-Pres. Chaney, nor did he blame American (or European) neo-cons, nor the Israelis. He blamed Osama bin Laden, and in particular, bin Laden’s Egyptian deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
I find that stunning.
On the Sept. 11 attacks, he writes:
“Ramming America has become the shortest road to fame and leadership among the Arabs and Muslims. But what good is it if you destroy one of your enemy’s buildings, and he destroys one of your countries? What good is it if you kill one of his people, and he kills a thousand of yours? That, in short, is my evaluation of 9/11.”
On Moslem and Arabic immigration to Britain and European countries, and the subsequent rise in terror-related violence (and in the case of Paris, riots), al-Sharif says:
“If they gave you permission to enter their homes and live with them, and if they gave you security for yourself and your money, and if they gave you the opportunity to work or study, or they granted you political asylum,” then it is “not honorable” to “betray them, through killing and destruction.”
These quotes are from his book, written from his Egyptian prison.
Was he tortured into writing this? Al-Zawahiri himself apparently doesn’t think so. He’s taken the trouble to compose a 200 page rebuttal to al-Sharif, something he wouldn’t do if the book could be easily swept aside by such accusations.
Apparently, al-Qaeda is finished. A major source of terrorism world-wide is crumbling, and the proof is coming more obvious every day. The War on Terrorism? It looks very much like we won. Who knew?
And who will get credit, do you suppose?
