Al-Zawahri disses Hamas

Al-Qaeda's number 2 Ayman al-Zawahri dissed the 9/11 troofers today for claiming that the US and Israel were responsible for 9/11. He also dissed Hamas for considering a hudna with Israel (subject to a referendum, of course).
"As for peace agreements with Israel, they (Hamas) spoke of putting it to a referendum despite considering it a breach of the Sharia (Islamic law)," Zawahri said in a message posted on the Internet.

"How can they put a matter that violates Sharia to a referendum?" he added in the message, the second in a two-part series to answer about 100 questions put to him via online militant forums.
And Zawahri hopes to put his money where his mouth is:
"We promise our Muslim brothers we will do the best we can to harm Jews in Israel and the world over, with Allah's help and according to his command," Zawahri said then.
Nice guy, huh?

It shows up the true nature of Muslim love. Theological disagreements between them aren't settled by scholarly debate. If there were no infidels around, they would slaughter each other. Al Qaeda sees itself as the big man on the Islamofascist totem poll and Zawahiri was telling Meshaal in not so many words to mind his own place. Hamas may be Islamofascist but its not pure enough for AQ - which says something to the effect that politics in the Middle East tend to run not towards moderation but towards the most extreme position possible.

Look for Hamas to have second thoughts about its "hudna" offer.

In the same sense that Hamas is more transparent than Fatah, Zawahiri is yet more transparent than Hamas--not that Hamas doesn't tell us their intentions, they do, just that it requires more effort on the part of the nonMuslim observer to understand them, since they occasionally suggest going along with Fatah-type-stages or negotiating under certain conditions. All 3 aim for the same end. I really appreciate that people like Laura Mansfield translate Zawahiri.
