Asad al-Jihad2, who some claim is senior AQ member Hukayma, is taking questions on Gaza. The Q&A session, modeled on that of Zawahiri, is open for four days of questions; AJ2 will give his answers soon after. Individuals are allowed to ask five question and news orgs can ask ten.
One has to be careful not to read too much into these questions since some were probably posted by intel orgs. But the concerns raised jive with everything else I’ve seen on the forums: what’s our stance on Hamas, who are the authentic Jihadi groups and why aren’t they doing more, and what do we do about Egypt and the Gulf countries?
I don’t have time to summarize them all, but one question directed to Asad al-Jihad2 struck me: “What is your view regarding the recent disclosure that Gaza is being annexed to Egypt and the West Bank is being annexed to Jordan?”
