O lamento de al-Zawahiri

Li no Wall Street Journal, num editorial, que a carta de al-Zawihiri para al-Zarqawi foi finalmente tornada pública. O texto completo, em inglês, pode ser encontrado aqui, para quem conhecer arábico, o link é este.

Já sei que os anti-americanos convictos vão desde já descartar esta missiva como propaganda americana. É uma possibilidade que eu próprio não coloco completamente de lado. De qualquer modo, a Casa Branca, o Wall Street Journal, o New York Times e outras fontes merecem-me bastante mais credibilidade dos que os argumentos e teorias de conspiração da habitual mistura de esquerdistas radicais, fascistas e islamistas.

É um documento notável, que, ao contrário das conhecidas tiradas triunfantes na al-Jazeehra, mostra a que ponto as antigas elites dirigentes da al-Qaeda no Afganistão se encontram enfraquecidas. Antes de mais nada, estão sem cheta:

Our situation since Abu al-Faraj is good by the grace of God, but many of the lines have been cut off. Because of this, we need a payment while new lines are being opened. So, if you're capable of sending a payment of approximately one hundred thousand, we'll be very grateful to you.

Estão acossados pelas forças do exército regular paquistanês, e pelos bombardeamentos americanos:

[...] The summer started hot with operations escalating in Afghanistan. The enemy struck a blow against us with the arrest of Abu al-Faraj, may God break his bonds.[...]the real danger comes from the agent Pakistani army that is carrying out operations in the tribal areas looking for mujahedeen[...]the author of these lines has tasted the bitterness of American brutality, and that my favorite wife's chest was crushed by a concrete ceiling and she went on calling for aid to lift the stone block off her chest until she breathed her last, may God have mercy on her and accept her among the martyrs. As for my young daughter, she was afflicted by a cerebral hemorrhage, and she continued for a whole day suffering in pain until she expired[...]

Estão desligados de fontes de informação actualizadas:

[...]In my opinion-which is limited and which is what I see far from the scene[...]I don't have detailed information about the situation of the mujahedeen[...] repeat that I see the picture from afar[...]Likewise I would like you to inform us about the Iraqi situation in general and the situation of the mujahedeen in particular in detail without exposing the security of the mujahedeen and the Muslims to danger. At the least, we should know as much as the enemy knows. And allow us to burden you with this trouble, for we are most eager to learn your news.[...]

Mas como a loucura dos fanáticos nunca cessa, expõe os planos da al-Qaeda para a reconstrução do califado:

So we must think for a long time about our next steps and how we want to attain it, and it is my humble opinion that the Jihad in Iraq requires several incremental goals:

The first stage: Expel the Americans from Iraq.

The second stage: Establish an Islamic authority or amirate, then develop it and support it until it achieves the level of a caliphate- over as much territory as you can to spread its power in Iraq, i.e., in Sunni areas, is in order to fill the void stemming from the departure of the Americans, immediately upon their exit and before un-Islamic forces attempt to fill this void, whether those whom the Americans will leave behind them, or those among the un-Islamic forces who will try to jump at taking power.

There is no doubt that this amirate will enter into a fierce struggle with the foreign infidel forces, and those supporting them among the local forces, to put it in a state of constant preoccupation with defending itself, to make it impossible for it to establish a stable state which could proclaim a caliphate, and to keep the Jihadist groups in a constant state of war, until these forces find a chance to annihilate them.

The third stage: Extend the jihad wave to the secular countries neighboring Iraq.

The fourth stage: It may coincide with what came before: the clash with Israel, because Israel was established only to challenge any new Islamic entity.

E indica quais os campos de batalha. O Iraque, claro, mas também:

[...]we are in a battle, and that more than half of this battle is taking place in the battlefield of the media. And that we are in a media battle in a race for the hearts and minds of our Umma. And that however far our capabilities reach, they will never be equal to one thousandth of the capabilities of the kingdom of Satan that is waging war on us. And we can kill the captives by bullet. That would achieve that which is sought after without exposing ourselves to the questions and answering to doubts[...]

Também as democracias liberais têm que ganhar neste campo de batalha. Mesmo com uma mão atada atrás das costas, como hoje acontece.

[Update] Constato, sem grande surpresa, que a carta referida foi classificada como fraude pela al-Qaeda, de acordo com os media.

Keep up the good work » » »
