Has Al Qaeda Been Hit By The Recession?

Ayman al-Zawahri, the deputy leader of Al Qaeda has made a plea to his ‘Muslim brothers and sisters in Pakistan’ to give donations to support the fight against the U.S.

The Al Qaeda deputy’s appeal to Pakistanis comes as public opinion in the South Asian nation has swung away from militants and in favor of army offensives against them.

A recent survey showed that 81 per cent of Pakistanis believe the activities of the Taliban and other Muslim extremists were a ‘critical threat’ to the country, up from the 34 per cent polled on the same question in September 2007.

Eighty-two per cent said bin Laden’s Al Qaeda was also a critical threat, exactly twice as many who thought so two years ago.
