God save the Queen (from al Qaeda)

The Globe and Mail, drawing on Britain's Sunday Times, is reporting that "Al-Qaeda has named Queen Elizabeth 'one of the severest enemies of Islam'" in "a video message obtained by Britain's security service":

In the video, Ayman al-Zawahiri, a leading lieutenant of terror boss Osama bin Laden, says the Queen is responsible for what he terms Britain's "crusader laws" and calls her an enemy of Muslims, the paper said.

The video also labels the British monarch one of Islam's "severest enemies," and warns British Muslim leaders who "work for Elizabeth, the head of the Church of England."

Whatever our disagreements over the scope and conduct of the so-called war on terror, let's remember that this is what the enemy is all about. And it must be destroyed.
