A Suggestion for Zawahri

Poor Al-Qaeda. For months, the Islamist organization has had to give over the limelight to Iran, Hezbullah, and Hamas, all of which have more guns and the advantage of constant terror activity to get them attention. Today, Ayman al-Zawahri, Bin-Laden’s right hand, issued a two-hour taped speech in which he grumbled about how (a) Iran is secretly in league with the U.S.; (b) Iran and Hezbollah are trying to deprive al-Qaeda of credit for 9/11 by suggesting that Israel did it; and (c) Hamas is violating Islamic law by contemplating a cease-fire with Israel.

Although he did not ask for my opinion, I would offer Al-Zawahri the following suggestion: If you’re really that mad at Iran, why don’t you put your organization’s efforts into taking out their nuclear program? That would really show them.
