God save the Queen

It's enough to make you a royalist. The Sunday Times reports that it has a video in which Ayman al- Zawahiri, Bin Liner's second in command, describes Her Majesty as 'one of the severest enemies of Islam':
"In the video, Ayman al- Zawahiri, second-in-command to Osama Bin Laden, targets the Queen as ultimately responsible for Britain's 'crusader laws' and denounces her as an enemy of Muslims."
If our Queen is held to represent a serious threat to Islam, the whole re-establishing the caliphate gig should be pretty easy to pull-off. Now listen carefully, Ayam - the Queen belongs to the dignified part of the constitution and today her role is largely ceremonial...oh, what's the use? It also appears that they've mistaken the Anglican church for an institution that actually believes things.
"In the video al-Zawahiri not only labels the Queen as one of Islam's 'severest enemies' but also sends a warning shot to British Islamic leaders who 'work for the pleasure of Elizabeth, the head of the Church of England'.

He said those who followed her were saying: 'We are British citizens, subject to Britain's crusader laws, and we are proud of our submission . . . to Elizabeth, head of the Church of England.'

In a possible reference to the role of the Muslim Council of Britain, which had issued instructions to mosques to inform on potential terrorists, he criticised 'those who issue fatwas, according to the school of thought of the head of the Church of England'.
Bet you didn't know the C of E had a 'school of thought'. If these ignorant ramblings are at all representative of the Al-Qaeda rank and file, we'll not be long beating these Islamo-nutjobs; they're obviously a bunch of thickos.

Read on for the interesting news that 8 out of 10 imams are happy with their Toyotas.

Update:I noticed Marcus at HP posted a piece by the same title. I was about to claim I thought of it first but I see his was up at an impressive (or insane, you decide) 7.45am. I didnae copy, honest...
