More Zawahiri on Camera...Ewww!

A new video of Al Qaeda's second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri has been released lauding Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his band of malevolent men. Naturally the same old tired propaganda devices are used in this video as all the other released discourses of affiliated Al Qaeda members. Via the NYTs:
"The Islamic nation must support the heroic mujahedeen in Iraq, who are fighting on the very frontline for the dignity of Islam," Mr. Zawahiri said.

"And to my brother mujahedeen in Iraq," he added, "I say, 'Stay firm. Stay together. Your enemy has begun to falter, so don't stop pursuing him until he flees defeated.' "
How ironic that "fighting...for the dignity of Islam" ends in the smothering ashes of a burnt out mosque. This is truly a "heroic" movement to get behind.
