Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri urges action against American interests “everywhere” in his latest video. The 17-minute address focuses on several issues but always keeps its sights on attacking the U.S.
Al-Zawahiri says the battle is about religion – the differences between Islam and the secular, materialistic West.
Zawahiri draws attention to what he sees as:
The impudent Donald Trump showing America’s true colors and the real views of Americans towards Muslims
The only ways to deal with American aggression which are dawa and jihad
The successful attacks by jihadis against American interests in Somalia, Kenya, Yemen and elsewhere
