Al-Qaida Vows to Keep Fighting Unless US Changes Policies Towards Muslims


The Arabic television station al-Jazeera has broadcast a videotape of al-Qaida's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahri, who vowed to keep fighting the United States unless Washington changes its policies towards the Muslim world.

In excerpts of the video aired Monday, Osama bin Laden's deputy said al-Qaida was not concerned with the results of the U.S. presidential election. It was unclear if the video was filmed before or after the November 2 vote.

Just days before the election, al-Jazeera aired a video from Osama bin Laden, who also said the United States must stop threatening Muslims if it wants to avoid another September 11-style attack.
