Believe it or not, al Qaeda has issued a public appeal to Muslims to rush aid to Pakistan, despite its jihadi fatwa against General Musharraf for his alliance with the USA.
None other than al Qaeda’s No 2 man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, broadcasted on al-Jazeera TV on Sunday the following message:
“I call on all Muslims and Islamic charity organisations in particular to go to Pakistan and give a helping hand to the victims there."
Matey you’re too late, the hatred West and other non-Islamic nations such as China, Russia, Japan, Korea are already there. In fact the usual mob were as always first at the disaster scene, regardless of whether the victims were Muslims, Christians or believers of other religions.
But the apparently strange al Qaeda appeal does provide mucho food for thoughts. Why would al Qaeda, a terrorist organization, make such a public plaintive exhortation to Muslims to aid a Pakistan that is officially waging war against al Qaeda itself?
