Failed Times Square Bomber's Suicide Tape
Al Arabiya, an Arab-language TV channel, has telecast excerpts from what it called a "40-minute martyrdom video" recorded by Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American who pleaded guilty last month to trying to cause an explosion on May 1 in Times Square, New York.
Excerpts of the video were posted on Al Arabia's Youtube channel.
The English language site of the channel reported that:
"a man wearing traditional tribal clothes and sitting with an assault rifle, praised as martyrs dead Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud and Iraq-based al Qaeda leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed in 2006, in the video which resembled footage made by suicide bombers."
In the video, the "man purported to be Faisal Shahzad" goes on to say, inter alia:
"Eight years have passed since the Afghanistan war and you shall see how the Muslim war has just begun and how Islam will spread across the world..."
...the other point is, is that this, this attack on the United States will also be a revenge attack from, for all the mujahedeen and ... the weak and the oppressed people of Muslims. For example, Baitullah Emir Shahid .... as well as the Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and all the Muslim Arabs that have been martyred — I will take revenge on their behalf, God willing. And I really wish that hearts of the Muslims will be pleased with this attack.
Islam is coming to the world, insahllah. Islam will spread on the world and the democracy will be defeated, and so was communism defeated, and all the other isms and schisms will be defeated and the word of Allah will be supreme, inshallah.
