Zarqawi Dead Or Dying?

Athena, at Terrorism Unveiled, notes a new message on a terrorist-allied web site urging Muslim’s pray for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi health.

DUBAI (Reuters) – Al Qaeda’s group in Iraq said on Tuesday its leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had been wounded and urged Muslims to pray for him, according to a Web posting.

“O nation of Islam… Pray for the healing of our Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from an injury he suffered in the path of God,” said a statement from the Al Qaeda Organization for Holy War in Iraq. Its authenticity could not be verified.This follows last weeks very credible eyewitness report by a doctor in Ramadi who treated al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi was reportedly bleeding heavily when he was brought into hospital. After treating his wounds the doctor tried to persuade him to remain, but the Jordanian-born terrorist’s minders drove him away.

Given the number of al-Zarqawi “capture” reports that never panned out, we’ll reserve judgment on this one. Perhaps it’s just a flesh wound
