The brother of al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri is proposing to mediate a peace deal between the West and Islamists.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, Mohamed al Zawahiri unveiled his proposal for the first time, saying he is in a unique position to help end the violence and that both sides need to make concessions.[/ex[
His six-page proposal offers a 10-year truce if the following terms are met. In brief they are:
• U.S. and West to stop intervening in Muslim lands
• U.S. to stop interfering in Muslim education
• U.S. to end the war on Islam
• U.S. to release all Islamist prisoners.
The document also calls on Islamists to change their behavior too:
• Stop attacks on Western and U.S. interests
• Protect legitimate Western and U.S. interests in Muslim lands
• Stop provoking the U.S. and the West
Osama bin Laden put forth a similar plan in 2004, which was rejected. It is believed the London attacks were related to the plan's dismissal.
Mohamed al-Zawahiri has quite a story.
Muhammad Rabee al-Zawahiri (born 1953 was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court, but instead he was held and interrogated by Egyptian security forces. He was one of 14 people subjected to extraordinary rendition by the CIA prior to the 2001 declaration of a War on Terror. He is Ayman al-Zawahiri's younger brother.

As I recall, the FIRST Mohammed's MO was to offer a ten year treaty to his enemies, which he always broke as soon as conditions favored him. Forget Greeks bearing gifts, keep on the lookout for a Muslim with a peace treaty.
Moammar Gadaffi released 240 al-Qaeda linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group terrorists in an effort to appease the Islamist. How'd that work out for him? Does anyone really believe these maggots would keep their word to the infidel West if they would betray a fellow Arab and Muslim who had just freed them?edit on 9/11/2012 by TTAA2012 because: (no reason given)

"Didn't the lion of Islam, the Mujahid Shaykh Osama bin Laden, may Allah protect him, offer you a truce so that you might depart from the Islamic lands? But you were obstinate and were led by arrogance to more crime and your foreign secretary, Jack Straw, said these proposals deserve to be met with contempt."
