Bin Laden deputy: Israel is crime against Muslims
Al Qaeda's No. 2 Dr. Ayman al-Zawahri said Israel should be wiped off the map and described the Jewish state as a crime against Muslims. According to Reuters, the Egyptian born man also accused American President Barack Obama of conducting a policy on Israeli-Palestinian issues that was bound to end in failure for the Palestinians. He added Obama wanted a Palestinian state that would serve as "an extension of the CIA."
"Israel is a crime that should be removed," Zawahri said in an interview posted on an Islamist website on Monday.
