Well here it is. The compulsary chance to offer conversion to the infidels before a battle. This is NOT a good sign. According to the Quaran it is considered a requirement in battle that the followers of Islam offer their enemies an opportunity to convert before jihad and being slain. Note the same gesture emerged from the Iranian president in his letter to GWB this past year. Which in fact GWB quickly dismissed without response as he should have. When asked about this the president of Iran indicated that he had been given the opportunity to “see the light”. This allows Al Zargawi to sleep with a good concience when blood is spilled when attacking the west and assures him entry into “heaven” if he himself is slain in the process. This could be an ominous sign and may foreshadow an upcoming event.

CAIRO, Egypt, Sept. 2, 2006 — Al Qaeda’s deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri issued a new videotape Saturday along with a man identified as an American member of the terror network, inviting Americans to convert to Islam.

The 41-minute video, posted on an Islamic militant Web site, had footage of al-Zawahri and a man the video identified as Adam Yehiye Gadahn, who has appeared in past al Qaeda videos with the nom de guerre of Azzam al-Amriki.

“To the American people and the people of the West in general … God sent his Prophet Muhammad with guidance and the religion of truth … and sent him as a herald,” al-Zawahri said.

Gadahn and al-Zawahri did not appear together in the footage.

“We invite all Americans and unbelilevers to Islam,” Gadahn said, dressed in a white robe and turban with a long, thick black beard and a computer terminal in the background.

Gadahn, a 28-year-old American from California who converted to Islam, is wanted by the FBI in connection with possible terrorist threats against the United States.
