Cairo, Egypt (AP) According to a new audiotape, Al-Qaida's number-two man is calling on Muslims to avenge Israel's recent offensive in the Gaza strip with attacks on israeli and american interests.
The four-minute tape with a voice that sounds like Ayman Al-Zawahri accuses Egypt's president of helping Israel in the offensive by sealing off the border between Egypt and Gaza.
He calls on muslims to “strike the interests of the Jews, the Americans, and all of those who participated in the attack on the Muslims.” and he says attacks should not be limited to areas in Israel or the Palestinian territories.
The tape was posted on at least two web sites, including one commonly used by Al-Qaida.
