17 August 2004 - Website Says Al-Qa'ida Leaders To 'Soon' Pronounce War on US, Europe (Again)
Reprinted from Karachi Islam in Urdu
According to a report on an Arabic language jihadi site, Al Qaeda has announced that Osama Bin Ladin and Ayman al-Zawahiri will soon make a public appearance so as to pronounce a fierce battle against the United States and Europe as well as the expiration of a deadline to pull out forces from Iraq. His appearance will belie all US claims regarding his arrest or death.
The statement released by an Al Qaeda affiliate group, posted on the Islamic website says their leader Osama Bin Ladin, or his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri, will soon make an announcement on the expiration of a deadline given to Europe to be followed by massive attacks on the United States, Europe, and other allied countries. The statement said "all Al Qaeda cells are fully prepared and as soon as Sheikh Osama gives an order, they will attack targeted places and personalities. Through these attacks, they will tell their enemies that they are not only capable of defending themselves, but also eliminating them."
The statement adds that all Muslims have been told that Sheikh Usama or al-Zawahiri will soon appear on some satellite TV channels and announce the expiry of a deadline and a war on the Untied States and European countries. It also said the people will soon see the Al Qaeda chief with their own eyes.
