Al-Qaeda threatens Turkey

Ayman el-Zawahiri, the number two figure in terrorist group al-Qaeda, is saying Turkey is a target for allegedly "distorting Islam."

Zawahiri, in a new video shown last week on Arab news channel Al Jazeera, said that the US administration was distorting Islam in order to form groups loyal to them.

El Zawahiri criticized the secular structure in Turkey and said that Turkey constituted an example of this. Zawahiri said that Turkey was being governed by groups which couldn’t dare to implement Sharia law.

He also criticized Turkey for recognizing Israel and permitting US bases and called on Muslims to continue their resistance.
