A new al-Qa'ida face, German, Bekkay Harrach

NEFA identifies him as Bekkay Harrach.

The German-language video, with Arabic subtitles, can be seen here.

Some worthwhile commentary here from Associated Press.

Update 29 January 2009. Two more good press reports:
both in English.

Harrach seems to part of the same network in Waziristan as Abu Yahya al-Libi and Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, but not IJU and their German star Eric Breininger, as far as I can tell.
