Today al-Qaeda´s media wing As Sahab finally released a annual 9/11 message, delivered in form of an audio tape by AQ No.2 Dr.Ayman az-Zawahiri.
In it Zawahiri explains why the Islamic Ummah is on their „path to victory“ while „the crusade against Islam is broken“ from „Khorasan to Islamic Maghreb“. Zawahiri says he would like to help the Pakistani people in aid after the floodings but is somehow not able to. Also he states, the floods are Allah´s punishment for diverting from the „true path of Jihad“.
