In his treatise ‘Loyalty and Enmity,’ written in December 2002, al Qaeda second-in-command Ayman al Zawahiri stated: ” ‘Palestine is torn asunder and demolished, its children slaughtered every day–yet its Arab neighbors respond with either silence or connivance. Iraq is victim to one campaign after another, in order to slay its Muslim populace, divide the land, and pillage its oil–yet its Arab neighbors perform every sort of assistance and support to the new Crusading forces. Afghanistan is victimized by the Crusading forces–yet its neighbors connive to give the Americans dominion over Afghanistan and its people.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
