The Path of Doom

Transcript of the last video from Al-Zarqawi via The Counterterrorism Blog:

The NEFA Foundation has obtained a new video recording produced by Al-Qaida’s As-Sahab Media Foundation featuring Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri and titled, “The Path of Doom.” During his sermon, Dr. al-Zawahiri sharply condemned the Pakistani military campaign to restore control over restive regions in the northwest near the Afghan border — particularly in Waziristan and Swat. According to al-Zawahiri, “the war in the tribal areas and Swat is an inseparable part of the Crusaders’ assault on the Muslims the length and breadth of the Islamic world.” As a result, “the Pakistan Army is acting as a fundamental element of the Crusade against Islam and Muslims, and has become a tool in the hands of the global Crusade.” Dr. al-Zawahiri suggested that there is only one means available “to get out of this predicament which Pakistan has gotten itself into: it is through Jihad, and there is no way other than Jihad.”
