New Book By Senior Al Qaeda Leader

Al Sahab media released today a new book by senior al Qaeda leader Abu Yehya al Libi. The 88-page book is entitled "Exposing the Lies Of the Rationalization Document" and comes in response to the book written by former leader of the Egyptian al Jihad group Sayyed Imam al Sharif, in which he called on Muslims to renounce violent activities and urged all armed operations in Egypt and in other Arab or Muslim countries to cease. Al Libi rejected all the arguments put forward by al Sharif, who is known as Dr. Fadl, but gave him the benefit of the doubt, saying he doesn't know if "the former Jihad mufti was forced by Egyptian authorities to retract his previous fatwas."
