Al-Qaeda: Next Target Israel

[Reuters] Miral Fahmy - In a video aired on the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on al-Jazeera television, deputy al-Qaeda head Ayman al-Zawahri said Israel and the Gulf Arab states would be its next targets. In remarks addressed to Western leaders, he said: "I tell them do not bother yourselves with defending your forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. These forces are doomed to failure. You have to bolster your defenses in two areas...the first is the Gulf, from which you will be evicted, God willing, after your defeat in Iraq and then your economic doom will be achieved.... And the next (target) is Israel. The current of holy war is closing on it."
