With all the sanctimonious, hypocritical howlings and catawaulings emanating from parliament, Whitehall and the media, to say nothing of the whining, mewling grizzles from the 'Trot-lot' creche, as Israel fights for its existence, it will have been easy to miss this little speech from the second-in-command of al-Qaida who informed us all last week that his organisation saw "all the world as a battlefield open in front of us [my emphasis throughout].'' He continued, "The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires ... . It is a Jihad for God's sake and will last until (our) religion prevails...from Spain to Iraq.'' He added, "We will attack everywhere.''
Unlike the putrid liars who control most of what passes for policy and opinion in the west, at least dear old Ayman al-Zawahri tells it the way it is, so you can't say you weren't warned. But then again, we've been here before; back in the 1930s no-one believed that mad Austrian ex-corporal, either, even though he'd written a book spelling it all out, and when it was almost too late we had to go cap in hand to those ghastly Yankees and beg for the where-withal to defend ourselves.
Hello ... hello ... is anyone listening?
