In his treatise ‘Loyalty and Enmity,’ written in December 2002, al Qaeda second-in-command Ayman al Zawahiri quoted the Koran, verse 5:51-53: ” ‘Allah Most High said: *O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors; they are but friends and protectors to each other. Whoever among you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them.* ‘ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
