CAIRO — Al-Qaida’s American-born spokesman has repeated the terror group’s conditions for peace with America, calling on US President Barack Obama to withdraw his troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, end support for Israel, stop intervening in the affairs of Muslims and free Muslim prisoners.
“You must pull every last one of your soldiers, spies, security advisers… and all other American personnel, ships and aircraft out of every Muslim land from Afghanistan to Zanzibar,” Gadahn said.
He also called onto the U.S. president to “stop all support and aid, be it military, political, economic or otherwise, to the hated regimes of the Muslim world.”
“This includes the so-called development aid,” he added.
The United States must “cease all interference in the religion, society, politics, economy and government of the Islamic world.”
He also called for the release of “all Muslim captives” held in U.S. prisons “regardless of whether they have been recipients of what you call a fair trial or not.”
This is pretty consistant with what al-Qaeda has said in the past and I think they see it as the first step in restoring the Caliphate. You get the Western influence out of all “Islamic” lands. Which would not only include all Arab lands but Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Sudan, you name it.
