al-Zawahiri: Overthow Musharraf!
The deputy head of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahir, issued a videotape in which he called on Pakistanis to rise up and overthrow President Pervez Musharraf. He also condemned the recent visit of Israeli officials to New Delhi, decrying an Indian/Israeli/United States axis, which they allege keeps the Palestinians down. Al-Zawarihi also warned that Musharraf intended to send Pakistani troops to Iraq, and called for nation-wide demonstrations if that happened. The Jamaat-i Islami in Pakistan has already called for country-wide strikes and demonstrations if Musharraf sends troops to Iraq.
