Ayman al-Zawahiri appointed as al-Qaeda leader - 16 June 2011

Al-Qaeda has appointed Ayman al-Zawahiri as leader following the death of Osama Bin Laden, the organisation's general command says in a statement.

Bin Laden was killed by US forces in Pakistan in early May.

In the statement, al-Qaeda "announces that Sheikh Dr Ayman al-Zawahiri, may God guide him, assumed responsibility as the group's amir [leader]".

It warned it would continue to fight a jihad or holy war against the US and Israel under his direction.

The statement posted on a militant website was attributed to al-Qaeda's General Command and was disseminated by the al-Fajr Media Centre, the media wing of al-Qaeda Central.

Egyptian-born Zawahiri was for years Bin Laden's deputy and had been widely anticipated to replace him at the helm.

'Jihadist renaissance'

Thought to be in his late 50s, Zawahiri is believed by some experts to have been the "operational brains" behind the 9/11 attacks on the US.

Zawahiri warned just over a week ago that Bin Laden would continue to "terrify" the US from beyond the grave.

In a video message posted on the internet on 8 June, Zawahiri said al-Qaeda would continue to fight.

"The sheikh has departed, may God have mercy on him, to his God as a martyr and we must continue on his path of jihad to expel the invaders from the land of Muslims and to purify it from injustice," Zawahiri said.

"Today, and thanks be to God, America is not facing an individual or a group, but a rebelling nation, which has awoken from its sleep in a jihadist renaissance."

For years, security analysts have suggested Zawahiri is most likely to be hiding in the Afghan-Pakistan border region.

However, Bin Laden and other key militant leaders who were also believed to be concealed there have instead been discovered in Pakistani towns and cities.

Bin Laden's killing by US special forces in a covert operation in the garrison town of Abbottabad on 2 May strained Washington's relations with Islamabad.

US President Barack Obama said "someone" was protecting Bin Laden, but Pakistan has denied any knowledge of Bin Laden's whereabouts and has arrested alleged CIA informants.

Zawahiri statement: Selected quotes -16 June 2011

These are selected quotations from the statement, attributed to the al-Qaeda general command and posted on a jihadist website, to announce the appointment of Ayman al-Zawahiri as head of al-Qaeda following the death of Osama Bin Laden:

In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate,

The General Command of the al-Qaeda Organisation Statement on the Succession of Sheikh Osama Bin Laden in the al-Qaeda Organisation's Command

...

With hearts that are satisfied with God's ordainment, and assured of Almighty God's promise and His good reward, the Islamic umma, the mujahideen in the al-Qaeda Organisation, and in other groups received the news of the martyrdom of the reviver imam, the jihadist immigrant Sheikh Osama Bin-Muhammad Bin Laden, may God rest his soul in peace. We pray to the Almighty God to raise his rank and to reward him, on behalf of us and the Muslim umma, with the best of rewards.

Since jihad is continuing until the Day of Resurrection ... the General Command of the al-Qaeda Organisation announces, after completion of consultations, that Sheikh Dr Abu-Muhammad Ayman al-Zawahiri, may God guide him to success, has taken over command of the group...

US and Israel

We seek, with God's help and guidance, to call upon the people to follow the righteous religion and to urge our umma to be mobilised and prepared to fight.

We will do this while practically performing the duty of jihad against the infidel aggressors, who attacked the countries of Islam, on top of them the Crusader United States, its protege Israel, and the rulers, who helped them and did not rule according to the Sharia of Islam. We will perform jihad against them as much as we can ... until all the occupation armies are expelled from the lands of Islam and God's Sharia becomes dominant.

We reassure our people in beloved Palestine ... We assure them that we will not accept to give up any part of Palestine, the land of encampment and Jihad, by any party whatsoever...

...

We confirm to our brothers in Afghanistan that we support them with our souls and our belongings…

...

Arab uprisings

We back and support the revolutions of our oppressed and repressed Muslim people, who revolted against the corrupting and oppressing tyrants after these tyrants had inflicted the severest of tortures in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, the Levant and Morocco. We incite them along with the entire Muslim people to revolt and to continue their struggle, sacrifices and resolution until the entire corrupt and oppressive regimes, which were imposed by the West on our countries and were taken as a bridge to apply its policies and to achieve its objectives, are uprooted.

...

This is our message to the Muslim umma and to those who seek righteousness and justice. God knows the true intention and shows us the right path. Our last supplication is: Praise be to God, the Lord of all creation. God's prayers and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his household and his companions.

General Command, al-Qaeda Organisation,

Rajab 1432 [corresponding to June 2011].

It appears that the BBC will not name this so-called "jihadist website".

Could this Zawahiri information be coming via the SITE website, which receives considerable financial support from the U.S. government?

All Al Q's information comes via SITE or IntelCenter:
QUOTE
Almost every statement by Osama bin Laden published on the Internet, to name only one example, is first made public by SITE and IntelCenter. They find the statements in the confusion of Web sites associated with al-Qaida, and within seconds they have sent the first screen shots to their subscribers. It takes the companies only minutes to summarize bin Laden's speeches and within hours, they will have provided full translations, analysis included.

A thread on 'terror pundits' here has some information on Katz and SITE and let's not forget Al Q's video supremo Adam Gadhan (thread here).

Dear Bridget

So it can be reasonably understood that these latest Zawahiri reports by the BBC are yet another example of establishment corporate propaganda in the name of perpetuating the so called "war on terror"?

The threat level must stay high and the war of terror must never be won!
