Game on, says al-Qaida

Al-Qaeda calling for worldwide jihad...

In the message broadcast by Al-Jazeera television, Ayman al-Zawahri, second in command to Osama bin Laden, said that al-Qaida now views "all the world as a battlefield open in front of us."

The Egyptian-born physician said that the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah and Palestinian militants would not be ended with "cease-fires or agreements."

"It is a Jihad for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails … from Spain to Iraq," al-Zawahri said. "We will attack everywhere."
Wonder what sort of "nuance" Bill Graham is gonna try to apply to the situation now. Maybe get on the Libphone and ask al-Zawahri to "take it back, pretty please?"
