Al-Qaeda leader praises 9/11 attacks, tells Muslims “topple the western proxies” during period of “American weakness”


Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri on Thursday released an audio recording hailing the “blessed” September 11 terror attacks as “the greatest blow” America had ever suffered. He also asserted an Islamic duty to “liberate” every inch of Muslim lands, and called upon Muslims to “purify” their countries of corrupt leaders during what he termed a period of “American weakness.”

Muslims should “topple the western proxies” left in their countries “and especially the Saud clan and the gulf sheiks in the Arabian peninsula,” he declared.

Al-Zawahiri also urged Muslims to capture citizens of countries that fight Muslims in order to hold them as hostages and force the release of Muslim prisoners.

In comments translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), al-Zawahiri commemorated the “blessed raids” in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. He also noted “defeats” suffered by the United States in recent years in Afghanistan, Iraq and through the demise of “four of its collaborators in the Arab world” – references to the fall of leaders during the Arab Spring.

    Yea, let’s use the drone on Ayman al-Zawahiri. You know one of those targeted hits that Obama braggs about. Joke!

    • You need to make him a citizen first, or it won’t work.

    This is really what the Arab Islamic springs is all about, getting rid of those moderate American backed regimes and replacing them with Islamic regimes with the ultimate goal of creating a caliphate. It has nothing to do with democracy or some film and our own president has been complicit in helping them in two of these countries.

    • Exactly. Thats why dear leader never did anything about Iran when the people there tried to have a legitimate “spring”, and dear leader left them there to die in the streets.

  • Am I alone in thinking that it’s time we “freed” the Arabs of all that desert sand and converted it into glass??

    Just wonderin’….

    • BS61

      Even as a former Dem I thought that!

      We need to clean up the politcal communist mess in America and strengthen and rejuvenate our selves before going to war anywhere else, in my opinion.

      First and foremost, bring G-d and prayer back to America
      1. Try and convict obama of treason and punish accordingly
      2.Throw out ALL illegals/anchors in America
      3. Get rid of all the czars in obama’s communist administration
      4. Fire ALL the communist in the Senate and House
      5. Get rid of all the Mosques in America as they are hot beds for terrorism in our country
      6. Throw out ALL of obama’s Executive Orders
      7. Throw out the health care mandate and all the legislative garbage that attends it.
      8. Throw out the EPA, IRS, FED, Board of Education and other over stuffed gov’t agencies
      9. Throw out the TSA and use Isreali system of protection
      10. Throw out the UN
      11. Throw out Agenda 21 legislation, immediately
      12. Make English the only language of our country
      13. Foreign Aid to Israel, only
      14. Get rid of all obama strangulating business regulations.
      15. Replace the liberals aka Communist Supreme Court justices

  • And the hits keep on coming!

  • detectivedick

    Now he has declared the true “War on Women” as well as same sex marriage couples. We are weak but I will buy War Bonds during the Romney Administration to buy more what is needed to remove these roaches from the plant.

  • As someone pointed out on another thread, there is a huge financial crises happening in our country especially with the CR being approved in the House of cards. One may begin to wonder if Obama is loving this show, distracting from the threat from within that we have more control over than what is transpiring in the Middle East.

    Nonetheless, we have not seen any leadership from the White House or from the Second in line to the presidency.

    • I’m not wondering my Puritan brother…. I know he’s loving every minute of it. He is evil.

      • I’m with you there ABC. I just wished that Mr. Speaker would live up to his constitutional requirements. He is the only one right now that can help steer this ship a bit closer towards center. I do wonder if they will ever realize the potential power that the Speaker does hold if done properly.

        • I wish too Puritan. I do think they know, but being a well entrenched establishment kind, Mr. Speaker will never use the full power. Call me cynical, but I still have visions of Boehner and dear leader golfing together acting like best buds. The few true leaders we have are struggling for their political lives because they won’t get backing from the GOP. Just like the last election all over again…. sigh..

          I had an interesting Bible thought the other day. Was pondering Daniel 2:21

          And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding. God sets up rulers and nations, just as He destroys rulers and kingdoms for His purposes.

          No matter who rules America, things are happening for His purpose and God is in control. Whether a guy has a d or an r after his name, he or she will never save this nation, or destroy it but by God’s will.

          Blessed night my friend~

          • Amen ABC! It is one reason that the only time I lose sleep over politics is during election results. I stay up watching all the returns 🙂

            Other than that I find great peace and solace in the Lord for it is God’s providence that brought us here and it will continue to be His providence and timing that will determine the fate of the US. Currently, I am on vacation in Gettysburg. It has been a great reminder and even wonder at how the Union army won with so many miscues and as well how the Confederates did not lose their whole army. Some call it timing, some call it coincidences, some call it luck, but it was out of the providence of God that this great battle did not cause more of a lost of men than it actually should have.

            We have monuments after monuments here reminding us of the sacrifice. And yet, we can barely get a memorial for 9/11? It is sad how quickly we forget things, willing to ignore instead of learning from. May our God truly have mercy and grace on us. We need it more than ever.

            Thanks for the good word!!!

  • Slickfoot

    Keep them rubber lips flappin’, there’s one headed your way soon you hateful SOB!

  • How about we purify muslim lands with a steady stream of pig blood.

  • Bklynnygirl

    “American weakness” = Barack Obama

    • Slickfoot

      Liberal progressivism is the actual culprit, of which he is a classic by-product.

    • Cindy09

      This is only thing he got right! Alas for us…. November cannot come soon enough!!

  • JDOlson

    Makes me think that all hell will continue to break loose in the BOob’s last 2 months.

  • American Weakness is the catch phrase and SLAP AT OBAMA!! I disagree that Obama loves this….no this is not something any President would want…death of Americans and broadcast around the world and you are campaigning….Sorry IT LOOKS BAD!!! AS for the financials….who in this country does not know their financial situation? You do why do you assume others do not? BS!! Conservatives stop thinking we are the only ones that know how bad a shape we are in….I am sick of that….others do as well…everytime they fill their car up with gas…..Stop buying the MSM SPIN!! GEE!

    • It might look bad for those who see the truth of it, but in dear leader land, the unwashed masses only see what mslsd shows them.
      I don’t know dear leader’s heart, but by his communist/marxist “fruits”, he may not be enjoying the death of Americans, but he doesn’t care. Their deaths are just a by product of what he is hoping for- America’s downfall as the greatest nation ever and his muslim brothers to be made to feel good. Oh, and the marxist dreams to come true, with him in charge of it all.

    …what he termed a period of “American weakness”. – Times of Israel

    That would be up through January 20th, 2013 when we install a President that will restore the United States to it’s ‘pre-apologetic period’. Al-Zawahiri knows that and wants to do as much as he can before his inevitable end.

  • I think ‘this period of American weakness’ refers to the past 3.5 years during the Obama administration. No Arab country thought we were weak under Bush after 911.

  • white531

    I’m sorry, just kill the sonofabitch the first chance you get. Was that not politically correct?

  • white531

    We are all having fun here with words, and I am as guilty as anyone. The honest truth though, is we are going to have to kill some Muslims, to get their attention. I hope you all realize that fact. We are going to have kill some Muslims. Not just a few, but a lot. It is, after all, what they have planned for us.

    • Nukeman60

      Yeah, just about everyone here does know that. It’s been prophesied from the beginning. Sad, but inevitable. Lock and load, my friend,. Lock and load.

  • chatterbox365

    Hmmm…I see a red dot (target) on this f**ker’s forehead.

    I’m sure there are some good Muslim people in this world, but I having a hard time believing this is a peace loving religion.

    Those savages attacking our embassies and killing our people are rabid dogs and the only way to deal with them is to execute them.

    • Definitly not a peaceful religion. Those few decent muslims are apostates to the real religion of pieces.

    • tshtsh

      Me, too, I thought that was a perfect target.

  • kclightguy

    I’m surprised nobody has put 2 & 2 together to determine the real parties that initiated this current fiasco. Obviously it was organized by……….The Israelis!

    Look at what Israel and Netenyahu has gained from these riots. The whole world now has absolute clarity on how the toothless lion Obama will respond to attacks from the middle east. Despite the loss of American lives there has been no action taken whatsoever.

    Good luck getting help from Obama if you’re Israeli!

    Who could ever blame Israel for whatever actions she now takes against Iran. It’s obvious Obama lacks any courage to act against the Muslim extremists.

    The Israelis did not start the riots much as GWB did not bomb the twin towers. But the effect has been to show precisely where everyone stands and why what is likely to happen can now proceed without waiting for Obama’s approval.

    If I owned property in Tehran I’d be selling it pretty cheap right now.

    • Nukeman60

      Get ready to buy that desert ‘glow-in-the-dark’ glass factory, though. There’ll be plenty of material. Millions of little shards with brightly glowing stars-of-david all over them.

  • wodiej

    We need to get the hell out of the Middle East and stay out. We need to develop our own energy which we have plenty of. No money to them, no interactions, no nothing.

  • GuessWhoFan

    Can you imagine what this guy smells like?

  • 911Infidel

    This was all about killing al-Libi wasn’t it? Al-Libi was just the excuse of the day in Trashcanistan for killing non-Muslims. Tomorrow the excuse will be something else, with a few quotes thrown in from the Koh-ran. Incidently, isn’t al-Libi arabic for “The Libyan”? Coicidence? Hardly…

    Time to increase the bounty on this dirt bag, Find him and then kill him.

  • Yazz55

    That only clarifies that the alqueda attacks this week on US embassies were carefully and intentionally planned to commemerate their 9-11 victorious attack (the alqueda perspective) and some useful idiot just happened to give them the cover of a cheap excuse with the alleged anti islam flick.

    • rich wojcik

      and USA was warned….and “somebody” decided to do nothing

  • JoeMontana16

    I quit speaking to Muslims. Like Mosab Hussein Yousef said, there are no peaceful Muslims. Islam is not a religion of peace. Its evil and of the devil. Pure unadulterated evil. They respect NOTHING but strength and violence. We have both of those. Show them exactly what it looks like when you mess with the baddest SOB’s on the block. Show them them the might of the United States of America.

  • WordsFailMe

    What I like about muslim combat strategy is that they have no definition of collateral damage, women children babies- they maim, kill, rape and defile any non devil worshipper, without reagrd to…..they have no rules of engagement. I am certain that the founders of Islam would have developed the ultimate war strategy–“scorched earth”– had not God beaten them to it.

    I like that about muslims.

    Of course when the West begins to produce it’s own oil and the last muslim has sold the last virgin daughter to a pimp, they can always go into processing excrement for sale as fertilizer. I’d say they could corner the world market in that product.

  • sue-marie

    Even Al-Queda understands that Obama’s Presidency is the “period of American weakness”. WOW! This must spread across the internet….do it guys!

  • Sober_Thinking

    This guy is the puppet master to a brain dead society of animals.

    And there are some Americans that embrace this fountain of evil?

    • rich wojcik

      many idiots in USA call it “religion of love” – not knowing it is LOVE to kill non-muslims

  • rich wojcik

    he’s asking for a big hole starting at his forehead. Let’s do that!
    Another muslim is asking for a foot print on his butt. Let’s do it! 😉

  • tinker_thinker

    Never have there been such useful idiots as obama and hill.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Thanks to all the idoits that voted for the dolt-in-the-White-House. I’m sure a lot of them are happy with the way things are going in the Middle East. I’m also sure a lot of those same losers are anxiously hoping the very same thing happens in the United States. And the muslims might give it a try, but with very different results for them. Everyone I know is stocking up on ammunition just in case.

  • Coming Apart

    I bet you we don’t see this on the MAINSTREAM MEDIA, “and called upon Muslims to “purify” their countries of corrupt leaders during what he termed a period of “AMERICAN WEAKNESS.”

  • stage9

    Hey I’d be satisfied if they’d just topple our Western LEADERSHIP!

    Give us some time, we’ll actually HELP YOU!


  • kong1967

    Even Al-Zawahiri thinks Obama was helping remove leaders that were on our side (against radical muslims). Thank you, Obama, for aiding the enemy… putz.
