English Translation: "Idol of National Unity, Dec. 14 Audio Message from al-Qa'ida Central Leader Ayman al-Zawahiri

The Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF), a shadowy transnational jihadi-Salafi media outlet which produces many translations of media released by al-Qa'ida Central (AQC) and likeminded groups, has released an English translation of the Dec. 14 Arabic audio message, "Idol of National Unity," by AQC's chief ideologue and deputy leader, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri. In the audio message, which was released with a still frame featuring a photograph of al-Zawahiri next to a photograph of al-Aqsa Mosque in disputed Jerusalem, one of Islam's holiest shrines, the AQC leader lambastes Palestinian political parties and (once again) slams the "modern idol" of nationalism.

The GIMF translation was produced remarkably fast, considering that in recent months it has taken them much longer to produce translations.
