Al Qaeda against ISIS 'Caliphate', but will join them to fight West

As if Islamic State was not enough to cash in on the vulnerability of young minds and provoke them to carry out killings, now al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri has issued a call to the Muslims, egging them on to stage lone-wolf attacks in the US and other western countries.


Al Qaeda against ISIS 'Caliphate', but will join them to fight West

Washington: As if Islamic State was not enough to cash in on the vulnerability of young minds and provoke them to carry out killings, now al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri has issued a call to the Muslims, egging them on to stage lone-wolf attacks in the US and other western countries.

According to a recording posted online, the Qaeda kingpin urged the young Muslims “not to hesitate” in harming the nations that comprise the anti-jihadi coalition carrying out air strikes in Syria and Iraq.

Trying to inculcate extremist attitude in them, Zawahri also urged the young Muslims to follow in the footsteps of notorious attackers like Tsarnaev and Kouachi brothers, ( who carried out Boston maraton bombing and Charlie Hebdi attacks respectively) and “transfer the war” to the heart of the homes and cities of the crusader West and specifically America, according to a tweet by terror tracker SITE Intel Agency.

"I want to concentrate now on transferring the war to the backyard and facilities and cities of the West, particularly America. They must know that as they bomb us they will be bombed, as they kill they will be killed, as they injure they will be injured, as they destroy they will be destroyed, as they damage and burn, so they will be damaged and burned," said Zawahri.

Speaking about his stance on the Islamic State, Zawahri reiterated that though the ISIS claim to be a caliphate was illegitimate, he would still join them in battling against Western forces in Iraq and Syria.
