A letter released today (October 12, 2005) is stating Al Qaeda plans to ultimately establish an Al Qaeda Islamic Nation in Iraq with the ultimate goal to include Israel when America pulls out of Iraq. And they are counting on the Anti-War movement to achieve their goal in the creation of this New Islamic Nation.

When the United States leaves, Al Qaeda must be ready to claim as much territory politically in the inevitable void that will arise, he writes. Zawahiri called that stage the setting up of an ''emirate," in as much of Sunni-dominated Iraq as possible, to be followed by the longer-term goal of a ''caliphate," reuniting the historical Islamic empire centered in modern-day Egypt, Lebanon, and Israel.
