Qaeda posts video of two 9/11 hijackers

2012-09-13 14:05

Dubai - Al-Qaeda on Thursday posted an online video of two plane hijackers of the 11 September 2001 suicide attacks, which they said were part of a war to drive US forces out of the Arabian Peninsula.

Salim al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdar, two of the 19 extremists who hijacked the four airliners, appeared reading their wills, in a video produced by As-Sahab media arm of al-Qaeda and provided by the US-based Site Monitoring Services.

Mihdar, dressed in a military jacket and a white turban, with a machinegun to his left, said he was reading his will on 21 Safar 1422, on the Islamic calendar, which was 26 April 2001.

Mihdar is believed to have landed in the United States in January 2000.

"Arab leaders... have gone far in betraying their nation and have permitted Christian Americans into the land of the two holy sites" of Mecca and Medina, he said.

The operation was "part of jihad [holy war] campaign against the United States and its supporters", said Hazmi in a separate message.

Nearly 3 000 killed

"It is to restore dignity for Muslims and to drive you out of the Arabian Peninsula," said Hazmi, who appeared with a patchy beard, wearing a brown thawb garment and a black turban.

"The Aqsa mosque [in Jerusalem] is being desecrated... and the Arabian Peninsula is full of US and British troops that fight Allah," he said in a clear reference to foreign troops based at the time in Saudi Arabia.

Nearly 3 000 people were killed when al-Qaeda hijackers slammed two airliners into New York's World Trade Centre.

Another plane hit the Pentagon, while the fourth slammed into a field in Pennsylvania after passengers fought the hijackers.

The two assailants appeared in a video titled The Emerging Sun of Victory Over the Victorious Ummah and the Vanquished Crusades, which comprises mainly of another audio message by al-Qaeda's leader Ayman al-Zawahiri slamming Muslim countries for not being able to defeat Israel.

"These governments cannot liberate Palestine. In fact, they are helping in keeping occupation in Palestine," he said, condemning the new Arab governments run by Islamists for "declaring that they will keep [peace] agreements" with Israel.

    Madness comes in many forms, but using God to perpetrate evil acts against humanity can only be described as Satanism. Whether Allah means Satan is something that must be debated in the context this article. In this age of science and technology let us not be fooled or intimidated by the mentally sick who think they can impose their sick view of society on the modern world.

      Dawood is a genocidal racist. On this website he has called for the extermination of all Jewish people.

      dawood.timol - 2012-09-13 15:38

      welcome fred..when did i ever say that.typical racist mentality.i've never ever called for the head of jewish ppl,most of whom i regard as peace loving ppl. But the head of the racist,thieving,looting evil zionist, whom are the real threat to world peace and security.You seem to fall in that category,fred. On a lighter note, did u consider ever emigrating to the place you love and leave us peace loving S Africans

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 17:10

      Meme, unfortunately it is your thought process that's insane. Think about.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 17:14

      Dawood, on this website you said it was a pity Hitler didn't finish the job. One just has to look at the looney website you're promoting. Who exactly are "the evil, thieving, looting Zionists", when have they done those evil things you see, and how are they a threat to world peace? Where is the world peace that your "evil Zionists" are threatening? I am neither Jewish nor a "Zionist".

    So much for the conspiracy crowd who commented here on Tuesday. Remember one clever person saying Al-Qaeda never admitted to anything.

      Shane Loxton - 2012-09-13 14:47

      that clever person dont do much reading thats for sure, but still does not explain why they flew Bin Ladens family out of the US within hours of the attack

      allcoveredinNinjas - 2012-09-13 14:56

      Yip, apparently the US was collaborating with them to orchestrate the event as well . What a joke.

      Sonnyjakes - 2012-09-13 15:14

      Bin Laden's family was removed for fear of Islamaphobia, ask muslims in USA what happened to them after 9/11. Muslims lived in fear of retaliations. WW2 German and Japanese American citizens experienced the same after Pearl Harbour.

      allcoveredinNinjas - 2012-09-13 15:19

      It wasn't hours , it was the next day and further flights a few days later , most of the family don't know Osama and the family disowned him in 1994 . Most of the family members flown out were school, college and graduates at the request of the Saudi's and interviewsed by the FBI at the assembly point in Texas. In the end it still does not count as evidence to 'America did it to itself'.

      merven.halo - 2012-09-13 15:36

      Lol, I wonder how does this fit into the conspiracy idiots' theory?

    Hi All,can anyone here tell me how the purported statement in his will links to the 9 11?I cannot see any evidence from this article or the statement in his will that this relates to 9 11.

  • Black.Atom.Zo - 2012-09-13 15:24

    Do people still believe in Al Qaeda? ...kwaaa

  • omar.hartley - 2012-09-13 15:42

    Why do we always only have to hear about the 3000 people who were killed? Western media hardly ever reports on the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi's and Afghans who were killed by the west in the retaliatory attacks that occurred very soon after 9/11. That was a much bigger travesty of justice.

      jaba.kov - 2012-09-13 15:51

      Nor the 26000 Syrian Muslims killed by other Muslims in the last few months alone. Religion of peace????

      jaba.kov - 2012-09-13 16:17

      In Syria only

      omar.hartley - 2012-09-13 16:47

      And it STILL doesn't come close to the hundreds or thousands lost when the West indiscrimainately bombed muslim women and children. \r\n\r\nI'm not even going to mention the million lives lost in Iraq as a result of sanctions placed on it by the US after the 1st Gulf War. \r\n\r\nCatch a wake up. Islam is coming and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

      allcoveredinNinjas - 2012-09-13 16:59

      Ask why those sanctions there ? Stop lying .

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 17:17

      Omar, again, you;re being foolish. EVERYONE knows Jihadists and unelected dictators in YOUR community are killing, maiming, detaining, torturing and raping your very own people. Wake up. Truly you're making yourself look foolish. More than 100 million MUslims have freed themselves from the lies you're believing, sold to you by the very Jihadists and dictators killing and maiming your own people.

      dawood.timol - 2012-09-13 19:22

      @ omar.hartley watch the evil fred.fraser,self proclaimed zionist,does not put words in your mouth and call you a jew hater.

      xolani.mhlongo3 - 2012-09-13 23:59

      Last Days as the Holy Writtings says.

      omar.hartley - 2012-09-14 00:12

      @fred.fraser- the fact that you rely on western media such as CNN, BBC, Sky News etc for your source of news shows exactly just what kind of idiot we dealing with. I'm shocked and surprised that people rely on those 'news stations' for anything other than weather and sport. Good luck with life in your bubble.

  • raymon.mcnelly - 2012-09-13 15:47

    The U.S. is surely doomed... with extremist Islam external (and internal) and a Muslim President collapsing their economy from within... God help us all....

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 17:09

      Obama is not Muslim. He's Christian.

      raymon.mcnelly - 2012-09-13 17:28

      Fred.fraser: Yes, sure he's not a Muslim *wink-wink*

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 18:12

      Raymon, no offense, you're way out there. His entire adult life has been spent in churches. Do you really think in the US, in the Information Age his religion is hidden, a secret. Come on. That's a ridiculous idea.

      shane.loxton - 2012-09-13 22:20

      For the benifit of the EDUCATED Fred - Copied From YouTube Video Location: ÔÇťObama admits that he is a Muslim. Obama bowing before a Muslim king. Obama talking about his Muslim family. Obama quoting from the Koran. Obama defending Islam. Obama visiting a Mosque. And many more clips of Obama and his Muslim connections.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 22:46

      Shane, you're believing home-edited YouTube videos. You're living in a fantasy world.

  • fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 18:13

    Amazing to think that to some, even on this website, this is a hoax, US invented misinformation. Incredible what people choose to believe.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 18:14

      But then to some, Fidel particular, even Nelson Mandela is a hoax, a fraud. In Fidel's words, a phony, a lackey of the West, a modern-day Uncle Tom.

      Gcodi Mahomed - 2012-09-13 19:16

      @fred.fraser ,same babble, different day,how do you live with yourself,so much of hatred and animosity!!!

      dawood.timol - 2012-09-13 19:26

      fred needs love in his life.It seems he's been through a whole lot of abuse when he was young.not sure, but these seem to be symptoms of sexual abuse.It is a sickness and fred needs help. Why all the hate , fred ?

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-13 22:48

      Gcodi, Dawood, do you agree then with Fidel that Nelson Mandela is a phony, a lackey of the West, a modern-day Uncle Tom?

      omar.hartley - 2012-09-14 00:16

      Your have to forgive fred. He still gets his news from CNN!

      Shane Loxton - 2012-09-14 08:40
