Skip to comments.Al-Qaida leader calls for attacks inside US [Obama's "allies" in Syria]
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.

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.
Our Syrian Rebel friends.
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?)
So much for what O told us...
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?
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:
Wonder what that cost?
To paraphrase George W. Bush
Bring it, chicken S#!T goat F’er!
IOW, more arson, including crops.
I agree with what you say.
The downside is that Obama has the helm.
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.
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. Thats just setting fires in U.S. forests [and] grasslands.
My take is that it will be situational, depending upon whether the attack is for terror or for economic / military purposes. By "military" I'm including area denial in that the land around urban areas will become increasingly incapable of supporting human life. In that respect, the results of this effort will closely resemble the goals of Agenda 21.
In Biblical terms, all one has to do is to read Leviticus 26:
It seems Barry Soetoro is responding to the call to "bleed America financially"!!!
"It costs about $6.5 million a day to operate a single carrier strike group, which includes five other warships, an attack submarine, an air wing of 80 fighters and helicopters, and a crew of 6,700."
"The new[est] carrier [USS Gerald Ford] carries a prohibitive price tag of $13.6 billion, double the cost of the last aircraft carrier. And that does not count the $4.7 billion spent on research and development for the new class of carriers."
Well they’ve already infiltrated the White House.
Let’s allow more muzlims in the country. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Never heard that one before.
I dare all these wannabe terrorists to try it. Obama is watching over us. He’s da man.
Correction...mujahedeem means Muslim Brotherhood. Barry’s BFF.
With full sanction from their leader hussein.
But how is it possible the ragheads could attack us here? I thought if “we fought them over there, we wouldn’t have to fight them over here.”
but.....but....but.... Obama told us Al Quaeda was on the run!
PS - The brotherhood is finished with him. He’s outlived his usefulness. They just needed to get him re-elected.
The allies subdued the world in 4 years in WWII. But, they fought a war to its bitter end. Unconditional surrender.
We have not done so. Therefore, 12 years later we are pushing a politically correct plan of “eternal stabilization”.
Obama is carrying out that phase of the attack for them.
If we had entered the Syrian civil war on al-Qaida's side - Obama would have offered some of these charming folks citizenship in the United States. Read the quote again...
Nail on head. The reason: Our military is so concerned about "collateral dammage" that they won't go all out.
We can’t even acknowledge the enemy, Navy Vet.
It is islam itself, a political dictatorship masquerading as a religion.
At some point American anger will turn toward mosques... not a good idea achmed.
valerie jarrett’s personal email account.
I have read that the Imams trained and sent to the world's mosques are all trained in a radical brand of islam. This tells me first, that Saudi Arabia is our enemy. It tells me second that the leadership of the 5th column is at the head of the column.
The 1st WTC bombing in 1993 was an attack against the economy. It followed a recession that was pretty much orchestrated by the MSM.
The 9/11 attack was also an attack against the economy. It came on the heels of a recession which was orchestrated by Clinton with the Oil for Food program and the smuggling of Iraqi oil which drove the price of oil so low oil producing countries around the world didn’t have any money to spend and the oil companies weren’t spending.
At the same time the economy suddenly collapsed in 2008, there was also a terrorist attack planned for NYC subway system which would have been an attack against the economy.
In all three cases the dems had their talking points in place to blame the repubs for the recessions.
In 2 of the 3 terrorist attacks, 1ST WTC bombing and 9/11, dems had their talking points in place to blame Bush, 41 and 43.
I don’t have any doubt, when the news media goes full scale blaming the repubs for the crashing economy there will be a major terrorist attack following.
Dead on as usual!
“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.””
Sigh. So true. Ignorant of history but really up to date on the latest crap fed by hollywood.
Supposedly started in an ice cream shop—I’d think they’d know if it were sabotage.
Obama is al Queda
Looking at Ex 23:11, do you see a 7 year crop rotation with 7th year fallow as the equivalent of a 7th year Sabbath?
No. This was a multifaceted plan to maintain logistical stores of food in remote locations, train a national militia, maintain a vital pastoral cohort, and to train and empower the poor. All of that was incorporated in that one verse. It is amazing. In fact, it is the key to understanding much of the Sermon on the Mount and the parables of Matthew 25.
I suppose an agricultural people wouldn’t just be sitting on their hands throughout an entire year of no work.
You have a point.
That is what was done during the Second Temple Period. It is why the multitudes were available for the Messiah's teaching, as His first year of ministry was a Sabbatical year. The reason the original plan was never followed during that time was that their Persian, Greek, and Roman suzerains would have killed any rabbi teaching on the topic. That is why the founding verse for the Sabbath for the Land is not cited AT ALL in the entire two volumes of the Jerusalem Talmud dedicated to the Sabbath year (Tractate Shviit).
