Libya tragicomedy: Al Qaeda supports the rebels too

Coalition of the Confused:

A senior member of al Qaida urged Libyan rebels to continue their fight against Muammar Gaddafi and warned of the consequences of defeat, in a videotaped message posted on Jihadi websites, the Qatar-based Gulf News reported on Sunday.

The message from Libya native, Abu Yahya al-Libi, marked the first time a top ranked al Qaida commander had commented on the uprising in Libya. Gaddafi has repeatedly blamed al Qaida for inciting the unrest against him.

Question: So is Libya now a crusade or a jihad? Whatever the answer, we’ve lost Merkel but gained…bin Laden?
