al-Qaida offers its Videos for Cell Phones

In order to extend its influence, Al-Qaida's media wing, al-Sahab, announced the availability of eight Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri video messages for cell phones. In a written message introducing the new cell phone videos, al-Zawahri, al-Qaida's number 2 figure, asked followers to spread the terror group's messages: "I asked God for the men of jihadi media to spread the message of Islam and monotheism to the world and spread real awareness to the people of the nations.” Al-Sahab has promised to release more of its previous video messages in cell-phone quality formats. Videos playable on cell phones are increasingly popular in the Middle East, mainly thanks to how easy they can be transferred from phone to phone using Bluetooth or infrared wireless technology.
