Al-Qaeda on September 11 Anniversary
UPDATE of September 18 further down !
الظواهري يدعو الثورات العربية لإرساء أسس الإسلام.. وتنظيم القاعدة يشيد بالثورات
Al-Zawahiri praises the Arabic revolutions for anchoring the foundations of Islam ... and Al-Qaeda organization is celebrating the revolutions.
نقلا عن رويترز- تسجيل صوتي جديد بث لزعيم القاعدة الجديد أيمن الظواهري يبرز فيه لقطات مصورة لم يسبق إذاعتها لزعيم القاعدة السابق أسامة بن لادن بمناسبة ذكرى هجمات 11 سبتمبر.
Reported by Reuters: A new sound record originating from the new leader of Al-Qaeda, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, has appeared and which is illustrated with views not published before of former Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden on the occasion of the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
و قال الظواهري في التسجيل " تمر بنا هذه الأيام عشر سنوات على الغزوات المباركات في نيويورك و واشنطن و بنسلفانيا, ذلك الحدث الهائل الجبار الذي هز أركان الصليبية العالمية و لازال يهزها هزا, مرت عشر سنوات إنتصرت فيها الأمة المسلمة بمجاهديها على الإستكبار الصليبي إنتصارات متتاليات
And Al-Zawahiri said in the recording: " We consider these days of the ten years [after] the raids of benediction in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania [as a] fabulous and gigantic incident which excited the leadership of the global crusaders and doesn't end to excite them. In the course of ten years, the community of the [respectable] took on the struggle against [those who] admire the crusade [and thus won successive victories]."
و أضاف قائلا أمريكا لا تواجه أشخاصا و لا جماعات لكنها تواجه أمة منتفضة, تلك الحقيقة لا تعترف بها أمريكا بل و لا تريد أن تعترف الإسلامية إستطاعت أن تواجه من تسمي نفسها أقوى قوة في تاريخ البشرية
And he added that America should not confront the people and not communities only because they are opposing an uprising nation, hitten by reality [and yet] not realizing it, even an America unwilling to accept Islamism was able to face [what can be named] a very strong power in human history.
و فيما يتعلق بالإنتفاضات العربية قال الظواهري انه يأمل بأن ترسى حركات الإحتجاج التى أطاحت بزعماء تونس و مصر و ليبيا الأرض الإسلام الحقيقي
And while referring to the Arabic uprisings, Al-Zawahiri said that he is expecting [these] movements of protest would get anchored and overthrow the leaders of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya [which belong to] the territory of an authentic Islam.
و أضاف قائلا "كما أرض أهل الأموال الحريصين على نصرة الإسلام أن يبادروا بالاستفادة من الإنفتاح الحالي في تونس و مصر, إعلامية جديدة تدعو للعقيدة الصحيحة و الإسلام المتحرر من التبعية للمستكبرين, و الرافض لظلم الحكام المغسدين"ْ
And he added: "[How corruption makes] the family of fortunes [or: the rich people] jealous [to enjoy] support from Islam such that they [may] hurry up gaining profit from the present opening in Tunisia and Egypt. Latest notifications called for the right confession and Islam being freed from dependences in the admiration [of Allah] and the heresy of [both] corrupt leaders' injustice.
و تضمن التسجيل أيضا رسالة قالت القاعدة أن بن لادن سجلها قبل أن تقتله القوات الأمريكية خاصة في مايو الماضي, يحذر فيها "أن تصبحوا رهائن في إيدي" الشركات الكبرى
And included in the recording was a letter that, according to Al-Qaeda, had been registered with Bin Laden before he was killed by U.S. special forces last May and in which he warned "that they will meet their dawn as hostages in my hands *".

I tried to translate as much as possible within the following hours, yet leave that text without further comment. Maybe, you might like to refer to my blogspot of September 11, 2011.
The chief editor of Al-Quds Al-Arabi, the most important Palestinian daily, remembers when he met Osama Bin Laden in the Tora Bora region after U.S invasion of Afghanistan. Then he asked him how he could venture to fight against such mighty nation as the U.S. who would follow him even to Afghanistan, and Bin Laden replied it was exactly his plan to lure the U.S. to Muslimic ground where he could fight and defeat them more easily than on their own territory. ... It must have been his most lucky day when U.S. Bush administration declared war on Iraq on the basis of faulty charges. Once U.S. troops were fighting on Muslimic territory, Islamic communities could only react by declaring a defensive Holy War to the West. In that sense, Osama Bin Laden was really successful.
All of Al-Qaeda's prior assaults on the U.S., starting with embassy bombings in East Africa and the U.S.S. Cole bombing in Yemen up to the September 11 incidents in 2001, should then be seen as the preparatory steps of a strategy intended to get the hated Yankees mixed up in endless fighting on hostile ground in order to bleed them out. This evaluation is shared by a former CIA official who put it that way: "In fact, Mr. Bin Laden said : Jump ! And Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney asked: How high ?"
