Al-Qaeda No. 2 criticizes Obama over Gaza

Al-Qaeda's No. 2 criticized President Barack  Obama on Tuesday for not mentioning Gaza in his inauguration speech, and urged Muslims around the world to target US interests to avenge America's backing of the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip.


In a new audio recording posted on the Internet, Ayman al-Zawahri also called on Muslims to continue fighting in the coastal region, where a two-week truce since Israel's 22-day assault remains fragile. "The path to fighting the occupation is open to all Muslims," Al-Zawahri said in the recording accompanied by

video and still images from the offensive.  (AP)
