Al-Qaida leader calls for attacks inside US [Obama's "allies" in Syria]
Daytona Beach News Journal ^ | 13 sep 13 | MAAMOUN YOUSSEF

Posted on 09/13/2013 6:21:50 AM PDT by xzins

Al-Qaida's leader on Friday marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks by calling on Muslims to strike inside the United States, with big attacks or small, using any opportunity they can to "bleed" America financially.

In an audio message released two days after the 12th anniversary of the attacks, Ayman al-Zawahri said America is not a "mythic power" and that the mujahedeen - Islamic holy warriors - can defeat it with attacks "on its own soil."

Al-Zawahri, the successor to Osama bin Laden, used the anniversary to argue that the United States can be defeated by targeting its economy. At the same time, he also addressed the ongoing upheaval in the Arab world. Pointing to a power struggle going on within the rebellion against Syria's regime, he warned jihadi fighters in that country's civil war not "compromise" with more secular or moderate rebel factions, who he said would eventually turn against the al-Qaida-linked radicals.

Al-Zawahri, who is believed to be hiding in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border regions, said al-Qaida sympathizers should stage small attacks or a "big strike" against the United States, similar to the Sept. 11 attacks in New York and Washington, leaving America in "a state of tension" about when and where the next hit would come.

"We should bleed America economically by motivating it to continue its huge expenditure on its security as America's weak point is its economy,

On Syria's civil war, al-Zawahri addressed al-Qaida-linked jihadis - including many foreign fighters - who have taken an increasingly prominent role in the fight against President Bashar Assad's regime.

"I warn my brothers in Syria against any compromise with those factions. They have to learn the lesson of Egypt," al-Zawahri said. He was referring to the army-backed overthrow of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood.

Zawahiri says:

Small attacks could be done by only a few or even just one person, while at the same time "we must watch and wait to seize any opportunity to direct a large strike on (America), even if that takes years of patience to do it," he said.

Really have to wonder if that big boardwalk fire at the Jersey Shore was set by these lowlifes.

Meanwhile, Obama and his crew do everything they can to infect the government with Muslims that have radical connections and keep the border open.

It’s amazing that over half the country doesn’t seem to notice any connection with that and “his Muslim, er Christian, faith.”

If they could then don't you think they would have by now?

Was this announcement made from al Qaeda’s
office at the DO”J”, the Pentagon, or the White House?
(or from their home office after checking with each?)

America’s weak point is its economy
********

That may well be true. National debt closing in on $17 TRILLION! That’s nearly $150,000 per taxpayer. But that pales in comparison to unfunded liabilities which amounts to an incredible $1,099,298 per taxpayer.

The frog is boiling.

Perhaps he hasn’t heard about the record sales of guns and ammo by Americans over the last 5 years?

Al-Qaida leader calls for attacks inside US

A rather LARGE number of Americans wouldn't know even after it happened because that kind of news is NOT covered on the "Kardashians" or "Dancing with the Stars."

Obama is carrying out that phase of the attack for them.

It would be a small favor for Zawahiri to appear on "Dancing with the Stars"

He could do the Scimitar Swirl with Christiane Amanpour as his partner.

Yep. He spent how much calling the entire US military on alert, deploying carrier groups, Marines, Army, and all to say:

“Oh...Nevermind”

Wonder what that cost?

IOW, more arson, including crops.

I agree with what you say.

The downside is that Obama has the helm.

I agree.

I wonder if they must have credit for their acts or if they’re content just to strike and be quiet?

True. Unfortunately people don’t care.

big boardwalk fire at the Jersey Shore...

Are terrorists setting U.S. wildfires? Ex-NSA official: Al-Qaida ignited California blazes

In July 2012, William Scott, a former National Security Agency official and Aviation Week editor, told the American Center for Democracy that terrorists are using fire as a tactical weapon of war.

“Perhaps the most simple form of economic warfare is wild land arson,” Scott said in his “Fire Wars” presentation. “That’s just setting fires in U.S. forests [and] grasslands.”
