The Jihad Has Failed.

Via AKI:

A former leader of an armed Islamic group in Libya, Numan Bin Uthman, has written a letter to al-Qaeda second in command Ayman al-Zawahiri telling him that Jihadi groups in Arab countries have failed.

“Dear Doctor Ayman, as I told you during a meeting in Kandahar [in Afghanistan] in 2000, the experience of the Jihadi groups in Arab countries is failed and despite our appeals, the armed groups are divided and will not unite,” he said in the letter, a copy of which was published in the London based pan-Arab daily al-Hayat.

The letter by Uthman, who is based in London, comes after an audio message by al-Zawahiri – an Egyptian medic – was released on Saturday. In it, al-Zawahiri announced that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, had joined al-Qaeda. He also called for the ousting of regimes in North Africa.

The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group first announced itself in 1995, vowing to topple the Libyan regime. It is the second organisation to allegedly join al-Qaeda after Algeria’s Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), which changed its name to the al-Qaeda Organisation in the Islamic Maghreb last January.

I ask you and whoever is behind you to review the way you behave because the Jihadi groups are acting very badly towards those who think differently from the way they do,” said Uthman in the letter.

“I aks you to stop the armed operations in the Arab countries, to guarantee the security of Muslims and to retract your threats toward the West, to take away from them the terrorism card used by some Western governments to hate Islam and Muslims,” he said.

Imagine that.

On a side note: I’d be just giddy if the WordPress editor didn’t strip the text formatting off of anything on blockquotes, it really gets on my nerves.

    Wow, just wow. I had “heard” that much inner stife was happening within the ranks but this is very illuminating. I wondered how it was going to go over in Libya.
