Al-Qaeda leader issues warning

2013-04-07 13:08

Cairo - Al-Qaeda's leader has urged Muslims in Arab Spring countries to unite to institute an Islamic state, while warning France that its intervention in Mali will be bogged down.

"I warn France that it will meet in Mali, with God's permission, the same fate America met in Iraq and Afghanistan," Ayman Al-Zawahri said in a 103-minute audio message posted on militant websites late Saturday.

In the recording, al-Zawahri urged Muslims to liberate their lands from oppressive regimes and foreign troops, apply Islamic law, halt the plundering of Muslim wealth, support rebellious Muslims and oppressed people worldwide, and establish the Islamic Caliphate, or religious state.

His last audio message, in which he urged Muslims to join Somali militants, was in November.

    Islam....The Religion of so called peace! You can take your Islamic State remarks and shove it. Islamic governments are poison that oppress women and free speech will be a thing of the past. Just look at every Islamic country..free speech is non existent, women have minimal rights and barbaric Sharia laws get passed...

    Liberate from oppression then impose Islamic law? Does he not see the contradiction?

  • Johann Enslin - 2013-04-07 13:41

    Leave them to islam and sharia law? Nothing would be as opressive.

    Wipe these filthy religious fanatics from the face of the earth! They are steadily giving other muslims a really bad name. It seems their faith is one of violence. Watch out because the west will soon have drone armies capable of military movements the world has never seen. Flesh cannot fight metal! Its coming, the dawn of a new method to wage war.

    O Great Stuff. So that idiot who "runs" this country has gotten us enmeshed with international terrorism. With Security Services whose principal mandate is to protect The Family, life in South Africa just keeps getting better.

    The drones are coming for you and Allah can do buggerall to help you.

      Matthew Jones - 2013-05-13 09:26

      Yup,they're coming for him,"Allah" and lets not forget the innocents along the way.the families minding their own business,herd boys tending their cattle and so on. Love how Drones dont discriminate,more so, Gotta love the guy that uses them and tells people its for peace at the end of the day. Love the idiots who put him into power then realised the error made. better yet,love the mindless people that love the fact drones get used and still belive they're the good guys.

    Pools of blood in the name of religion???,sies,if they're fighting for good,why can't they do it orally and peacefully?

  • Nicholas Vilakazi - 2013-04-07 15:26

    The time has come, the person who kills us will say he's worshipping God

  • Annemarie White - 2013-04-07 17:29

    Any religion that advocates war and bloodshed is a religion of blood sacrifice. These gods have eaten so much human flesh and drunk so much human blood. Are they not sated yet?

      Matthew Jones - 2013-05-13 09:29

      Any??? Try most,if not All. whats that saying, "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone" Christians think they're without sin,as do Muslims. this is a never ending battle. and no side and can proove anything versus the other. But both sides blatantly defend their own and accuse the other. Mind boggling to some

    Come motherfu###r. Bring your and ancient weapons and let's see how they fare against the unmanned drones and the bombers America and Britain have. Thy shoul not stop until every single piece of rubbish like you is wiped off the face of this earth.

    The fools commenting here know ntn about religious politics. Wat is france doing in Mali, are they done solving france's gay issues, the Muslims in Mali need to defend their Sovereignty and they have to fight in what ever means.

      Avremel Niselow - 2013-04-08 06:29

      Because the Malian government begged them for help to defend their sovereignty.

      Matthew Jones - 2013-05-13 09:31

      They're doing what should've happened years ago.

  • Steve Martin - 2013-04-08 08:29

    Western countries need to find an alternative to buying oil from these countries and put sanctions on them. Unfortunately the immigration laws throughout the west have been so flimsy infiltration into Western countries has become easy. The West has become its own worst enemy.

      Melody - 2013-05-14 09:53

      South African borders are flimsy to say the least.....and it appears, so are our military bases i.e Waterkloof
