“Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda’s long-time number two, has vowed in a video eulogy to Osama bin Laden that he will pursue his late leader’s jihad against the West, SITE [Search for International Terrorist Entities] Intelligence Group reported on Wednesday [June 8, 2011]. ‘We will pursue the jihad until we expel the invaders from Muslim lands,’ he was quoted as saying in the eulogy to bin Laden who was killed in a US raid in Pakistan on May 2. ‘The man who terrified America in his life will continue to terrify it after his death,’ he added in the video message titled ‘The Noble Knight Dismounted,’ which SITE said was posted on jihadist online forums on Wednesday. ‘You will continue to be troubled by his famous vow: You shall not dream of security until we enjoy it and until you depart the Muslims’ lands,’ added the Egyptian militant, who was in white garb and a turban with a machinegun behind him.”
