Al Qaeda Issues Warning to America (and others) with an American Accent !
By Animesh Roul
Another chilling video from Qaeda production house Al Sahab reportedly warned India, Israel, Russia and of course the United States. This one hour long terror docu-drama came within a week after Abu Yahya al-Libi’s call for overthrowing Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf. This time the presenter is one American Qaeda member Adam Gaddhan (Azzam al Amriki). The video declared, besides targeting US at home and its diplomatic missions abroad, the outfit is planning to target Tel Aviv, Moscow and New Delhi. For the first time a video from Al Qaeda inventories reportedly accused India directly for killing thousands of Muslims in Kashmir and that to with US support. Gaddhan came to limelight in 2004 when he threatened in one such video, “Allah willing, the streets of America will run red with blood.” This is not the first time Gaddhan featured in such videos.
Not surprisingly the Qaeda documentary has footages of most of the earlier attacks including March 02, 2006 attack in Karachi, Pakistan in which US diplomat David Foy was killed along with his two Pakistani associates. The documentary largely in English with Arabic and Urdu recitals as background scores, has clippings of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri among others.
This is a story of Abu Uthman (focussed on his journey to so called Martyrhood, citing examples of Yousef Ramzi and others), speaking in fluent Urdu and appealing muslims to join Jihad and why. Gaddhan appeared in later part of the video. This one and al-Libi’s video message (Aug 01) used Urdu language (with Arabic) in a desperate attempt to incite fervor among the Muslims in South Asia.
Excerpts[from Adam Gaddhan]:
“[We] shall continue to target you, at home and abroad, just as you target us, at home and abroad. These spy dens and military command and control centres from which you plotted your aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, and which still provide vital moral, military material, and logistical support to the Crusade, shall continue to be legitimate targets for brave Muslims, like our martyred brother Othman, until and unless you heed our demands. Stop the Crusade and leave the Muslims alone."
Couplet from the background scores in Urdu:
“Salame akhir kubul karana, Shaheed hamle pe ja raha hun, Na luatkar aa sakunga sayyed, Mahaj aisa saja raha hun”
[Accept my salute, I may not be back this time as I am going for a suicide mission]
