as-Sahab September 2008 re Lal Masjid

This as-Sahab video is elaborate in its production, but routine and typically crude in its methods of incitement and in its style of propaganda. Their target this time is Pakistan, specifically the current president Asif Ali Zardari and the former president Pervez Musharraf. The narration is in Urdu with Arabic subtitles. Length 1:04:39.

The main appetizer this time is the dead bigshot Abdur-Rashid Gazi and the other Wahhabis who died in the siege of a cult compound and arsenal known as the Red Mosque (Lal Masjid) in Islamabad. Abdur-Rashid was a sometime affiliate of Bin Ladin and a proponent of the appalling Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

Abdur-Rashid Gazi should not be confused with Abdul-Aziz Gazi, who was captured when he tried to sneak out of the Lal Masjid by wearing a burqa and pretending to be a woman.
