The United States takes seriously the Al-Qaida threat against Israel, President Bush’s national security adviser said. “The final step of Al-Qaida’s strategy, Zawahiri says, is ‘the clash with Israel, because Israel was established to challenge any new Islamic entity,’ ” Stephen Hadley said Monday, referring to a recent missive from Osama Bin-Laden’s deputy, Ayman Al-Zawahiri. “Calls for violence against ‘Zionists’ are a persistent and pathetic staple of Bin-Laden’s rhetoric and action. We must not take this strategy lightly,” Hadley told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s national summit in Los Angeles.
