ANOTHER IRRELEVANT MESSAGE FROM AL QAEDA CHIEF
.The pledge to Mullah Akhtar Mansour was issued by al-Qaeda’s media arm As-Sahab and was Zawahiri’s first message since 09/2014. The position of Al Qaeda, however, is contested by the Islamic State (I.S.I.S)
In the recording Zawahiri said: “As Amir of al-Qaeda, I pledge to you our allegiance, following the path of Sheikh (Osama) bin Laden and his martyred brothers in their allegiance to Mullah Omar.”
Al-Zawahiri’s message – while impossible to independently verify – will be seen as significant.
Pledges of allegiance are key to a Taliban leader’s legitimacy, as breaking an oath is viewed as a sin, But once it was that the Taliban and alike pledged allegiance s to Al Qaeda – now it is vice versa – Al Qaeda pledges allegiance to the Taliba. Secondly the massage has no influence and is irrelevant to the new stage of Global Jihad, le by I.S.I.S .
