There is a new audio tape posted to a website and attributed to terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. In the audio tape Zarqawi is said to be whining about Muslim Scholars and clerics not speaking out against the US and coalition actions in the countries of Afghanistan and Iraq. Hmm, maybe they realize that you
are the problem Zarqawi and are not a true Muslim, but just a opportunist trying to start trouble for your own possible future gain.
An audiotape purportedly made by Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi lashed out Wednesday at Muslim scholars for not speaking out against U.S. actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, saying they have "let us down in the darkest circumstances."
It was unclear whether the tape posted Wednesday on the Internet was intended as a direct threat against Iraq's Sunni religious establishment, who have come under attack recently with the slaying this week of two Sunni clerics by gunmen.
"You have let us down in the darkest circumstances and handed us over to the enemy. … You have quit supporting the mujahedeen," said the voice on the tape, purported to be al-Zarqawi's. "Hundreds of thousands of the nation's sons are being slaughtered at the hands of the infidels because of your silence."
"You made peace with the tyranny and handed over the countries and the people to the Jews and Crusaders … when you resort to silence on their crimes … and when you prevented youth from heading to the battlefields in order to defend the religion," he said.
"Instead of implementing God's orders, you chose your safety and preferred your money and sons. You left the mujahedeen facing the strongest power in the world," he said. "Are not your hearts shaken by the scenes of your brothers being surrounded and hurt by your enemy?"
Is this a threat of attacks against clerics and scholars in the future? Who knows. Two were killed a few days ago
, but no one has claimed responsibility.
