Al Qaeda Leader Criticizes Muslim Brotherhood In 911 Anniversary Video


An Internet news portal has reported that Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has focused criticism for the first time on the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in a vide released on the seven anniversary of the 911 attacks. According to the report:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi are among several Arab leaders considered enemies of Al-Qaeda, according to a new video released by the terror network.Their names are included on a list of enemies in the video released by Al-Qaeda’s production arm, al-Sahab, on the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, and Iraq’s Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Husaini al-Sistani, and leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, are also included on the list. The video, released by the Arab network, also focuses on relations between Al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups. After having accused Iran of complicity in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the number two of the group, Ayman al-Zawahiri, focused on Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood for the first time. “While the muftis of Saudi Arabia ask the mujahadeen to fight and have dialogue with Jews and Christians and make Muslims accept the Jewish presence in the heart of the Islamic world, the leaders of the international organisation of the Muslim Brotherhood come to Kabul in American tanks talking about wanting to liberate it from the Taliban and agents of Pakistan,” the video says.

Al-Zawahiri’s reference to Kabul is not clear.
