In the good old days, if the Islamofacists hated you they called you an ape or a pig. Now the worst thing on the world someone could call is a friend of Israel. Last week Al-Qaeda big shot Ayman Al-Zawahiri released a recording where he made those horrible accusations against Pakistan President Musharraf.

Al-Zawahiri said that Musharraf’s proposed solution to the Kashmir issue was akin to giving up Kashmir to the Indians, that Musharraf had stabbed the mujahideen in Kashmir with a dagger, and that the “jihad in Kashmir” should be freed from the control of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies. He said that for all practical purposes, Musharraf had accepted Israel’s existence on Palestinian territory, as well as allowing U.S. intelligence agencies to operate freely within Pakistan and to establish secret detention centers in the country. He also said that Pakistani politics were dictated by the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan.

MEMRI:Al-Qaeda Deputy Head Ayman Al-Zawahiri in Audio Recording: Musharraf Accepted Israel’s Existence


Following is a summary of the main points of Al-Zawahiri’s recording, as published by the Urdu-language daily Roznama Express: [1]

Musharraf Stabbed the Mujahideen in Kashmir with a Dagger In the tape, Al-Zawahiri accused President Musharraf of endangering Pakistan’s national security by taking power. He said that it was because of Musharraf’s wrong policies that drug dealers and pro-India and pro-Russia people were in power in Afghanistan today. Also as a result of those policies, he said, India today had access to Tajikistan’s air bases, and its influence in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region had grown. Musharraf Accepted Israel‘s Existence on PalestinianTerritory Al-Zawahiri said that Musharraf’s proposed solution to the Kashmir issue was akin to giving up Kashmir to the Indians, that Musharraf had stabbed the mujahideen in Kashmir with a dagger, and that the “jihad in Kashmir” should be freed from the control of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies. He said that for all practical purposes, Musharraf had accepted Israel’s existence on Palestinian territory, as well as allowing U.S. intelligence agencies to operate freely within Pakistan and to establish secret detention centers in the country. He also said that Pakistani politics were dictated by the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan. Musharraf Endangered Pakistan‘s Nuclear Program According to Al-Zawahiri, Musharraf had endangered Pakistan’s nuclear program, and had made a scapegoat of nuclear scientist Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan to please the U.S. Also, he said, Pakistani politicians were creating instability in a nation capable of atomic power in order to endear themselves to the U.S. The People Of Pakistan Must Rise Up To Wage Jihad Al-Zawahiri accused the Pakistani Army of arresting Al-Qaeda commander Abu Al-Faraj Al-Libi, and pointed out that the army was fighting an American war in the tribal districts on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border which was resulting only in losses for the Pakistanis. He concluded by criticizing Pakistan’s religious parties for their “silence” over the July 2007 military operation in Islamabad’s Red Mosque, and urged the people of Pakistan to rise up to wage jihad.
