Al Qaeda: Trump ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’

'For crimes against Islam'

BY:

An al Qaeda-backed media group has issued a "wanted poster" for President Donald Trump that features a picture of the U.S. president with the words, "Wanted dead or alive for crimes against Islam," according to a copy of the poster and accompanying screed published by a Middle East media watchdog group.

Al-Hijrah Media, a pro al Qaeda group, released a statement earlier this week seeking the death of Trump for the United States' involvement in Afghanistan, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.

In addition to the wanted poster, the group released a statement lashing out at America for its continued presence in Afghanistan.

The "message to Trump and the Americans" claims that the United States is "weaker today than ever" and that it continues to fail in its efforts to defeat jihadi groups in Afghanistan.

"The U.S. was unable to defeat the Mujahideen when it had more than 100,000 troops in Afghanistan," the message states.

"Trump is talking about winning in Afghanistan," it continues. "And Americans what do you think?? Do you have no insight? Do you not know history?"

"Thousands of U.S. soldiers were injured and killed by the Mujahideen. Even, Obama had admitted before his retirement that America was unable to defeat the Mujahideen in Afghanistan," the message reads.

"America has no advantage to continue the war in Afghanistan," it continues. "It is clear that Trump is waging this war only for his hatred against the Muslims."
