Al Qaeda pushes for Pakistan Uprising after Lal Masjid

This was coming sooner or later! I believe it will be a miracle for India if somehow the Nukes of India do not fall into the hands of these Mullahs…. for the days of Musharraf seem to be numbered.

Osama bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has called on Pakistanis to rise up against Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf following the storming of a mosque in Islamabad.

Al-Zawahiri, a native of Egypt, called the assault on the mosque a “despicable crime” and accused Musharraf of working on behalf of the “crusaders” – a reference to the West.

The videotape was translated by the IntelCenter, a firm near Washington, which has provided recordings of al-Zawahiri in the past.

“This is a message of blinding clarity to the Muslims in Pakistan,” the Al-Qaeda deputy said. “This crime can only be washed away by repentance or blood.”

Pakistani forces stormed the controversial Lal Masjid on Tuesday after a weeks-long standoff with extremists who had taken control of the facility and demanded that the country be governed under Islamic law.
