Unconventional thinking about the Middle East.

Zarqawi Caught Fibbing...World in Shock!

Well, to my ears at least, that was definitely Zarqawi today in the audiotape that got posted around. An interesting addition to his litany of justifications for hitting Amman was the following article in the Los Angeles Times on November 11, 2005. I am pretty sure that this is the piece Zarqawi is talking about because he paraphrases this following sentence in his 27 minute tirade:

“Jordan's General Intelligence Directorate, or GID, has surpassed Israel's Mossad as America's most effective allied counter-terrorism agency in the Middle East. Since the Sept. 11 attacks, its cooperation with the CIA has grown even closer.”

Sort of makes you wonder about the culpability of the MSM in providing more fuel to the jihadist fire. I'm looking at you, Dana Priest...

I must say, Zarqawi is very eloquent, and electrifying. If I were a Jordanian simpleton—say, someone chronically pissed-off at the Jordanian government—I would find what he says very compelling. He plays on all sorts of conspiracy theories that would make plenty of sense in the turbid ‘hearts and minds’ of Middle Easterners.

Zarqawi also tries to display a familiarity with all things Jordanian by citing the targets he would not hit because these are civilian hang-outs, such as Safeway Supermarket.

Is there another Israeli spy also going by the copycat name 'Azzam Azzam'?

Zarqawi, though, makes a big doo-doo when he claims that Azzam Azzam, the Israeli-Druze spy, used to lounge around in the Grand Hyatt Hotel to meet his Mossad paymasters (listen to minute 10:25 of the audio). But Azzam was arrested in Cairo in November 1996, while the Hyatt was built two years later in 1998. Could it be that Zarqawi is making things up, again?

Zarqawi chides the Jordanian people for gullibly believing what their government is saying about the attack. If the Jordanian authorities had any sense, they would turn their media focus on Zarqawi's justifications and prove him wrong on each point he raises; the Azzam Azzam reference could be the starter.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
