Moammar Gadhafi a jihad target?
How soon they forget.
Gadhafi is one of the subjects of a video issued by al-Qaida #2 man, Ayman al-Zawahri. Gadhafi's Libya, which was on the US list of "terror-sponsoring states" for years, is now the target of terror.

al-Zawahri also went after Palestinian leader, Mahmud Abbas, calling for his overthrow. He also called for a Holy War against French, Spanish and U.S. interests in North Africa.
Al-Qaida's No. 2 figure harshly criticized Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in a new audio tape Saturday, accusing him of being an enemy of Islam and threatening a wave of attacks against the North African country because it improved relations with the U.S.
In the 28-minute audio tape called "Unity of the Ranks," Ayman al-Zawahri also announced that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group was joining ranks with al-Qaida.
From Dow-Jones Newswire:
Al-Qaida number two Ayman al-Zawahiri called for the overthrow of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas saying he had turned the movement into an " annex of the CIA," in an audiotape message released Saturday.
"I call on those who, among the members of Fatah and the (Fatah-linked armed) Al-Aqsa Brigades, who still have a little dignity, to fight their leadership which has transformed their movement into an annex of the CIA and a division of Mossad," Zawahiri said in the tape posted on the internet.
More from Dow-Jones:
"The Islamic nation is witnessing a blessed step ... The brothers are escalating the confrontation against the enemies of Islam: Gadhafi and his masters, the Washington crusaders," al-Zawahri said in the audio tape. The recording could not be independently verified, but it appeared on a Web site commonly used by insurgents and carried the logo of al-Qaida's media production house, as-Sahab.
The recording also carried a message from Abu Laith al-Libi, a Libyan al-Qaida commander in Afghanistan who accused Gadhafi of decades of tyranny.
Back to YahooNews:
He [al-Zawahri] said Fatah members should "return to their religion and rally to the support of their brothers, the mujahedeen (fighters), in Palestine and elsewhere in the Muslim world," Zawahiri said in the recording, the authenticity of which could not immediately be verified.As Gateway Pundit puts it, "They've lost the war. Now, they've lost their minds."
al-Zawahri seems a bit out of sorts. Things might not be going all that well for the al-Qaida poobah. Things aren't going well in Iraq or Afghanistan, with al-Qaida taking it on the chin from Coalition and U.S. forces.
al-Qaida's grumpy: wonder if the mainstream media will mention it or the reasons for this latest video.
