Hurting from the attrition in al-Qaedas ranks, Osama bin Laden is proposing a truce, according to a tape aired by al-Jazeera.
Many of my friends and closest collaborators have been killed by the infidel crusaders, said bin Laden. We havent been able to plan anything big. We need time to regroup. That is why I am asking Mr. Bush for a truce.
The recent death of key al-Qaeda operatives, including Midhat Mursi al-Sayid Umar, an al-Qaida explosives expert, in an air strike by the U.S. is believed to be the proximate cause of bin Ladens desire for a ceasefire.
Bin Ladens plea for a truce stands in contrast to Abu Musab al-Zarqawis claim of progress in al-Qaedas bid to rid the world of infidels. "Since the start of mujahedeen operations after the fall of the Baathist regime, nearly 80,000 martyr operations aimed at crusader targets and military convoys have been carried out. I estimate we have killed 400 Americans," Zarqawi said.
Zarqawi says it is only a matter of time before sharia (Islamic law) is in place everywhere on the entire Earth. In another two or three million years, victory will be ours, said Zarqawi.
