A new video from al Qaeda has invited journalists to send questions to the organisation's number two man , Ayman al Zawahri
Another video released earlier this week showed Zawahri in a classic, well-lit TV interview studio as he filmed the pilot for his new talk show his guests were Jessica Simpson, Wolfgang Puck and music by Kanye West.
Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert and professor at Georgetown University in Washington, DC said, "Al Qaeda's media operation has become increasingly professional over recent months, as they are not effected by the Hollywood writers strike they have taken full advantage and make all the Oprah ,Obama and Clinton jokes, however they must work on them a little bit as the jokes usually just end with be-heading or a stoning as in accordance with Islamic law. Not much of a punch line. "
Analysts suggest the invitation to an interview is a new twist in the organisation's campaign to reach a broader audience, and represents an attempt by Zawahri to present himself as a sophisticated leader, a people person, a man of the people rather than a murder thirsty terrorist who worships a Pedophile prophet .
"I think their media capability is sophisticated thanks to infidel western technology," said Hoffman, "The invitation is for individuals and all media to send questions to the web forums where Al Sahab, al Qaeda's video production section, traditionally posts its messages."
Being part of the media OBB News has come up with some hard hitting questions for Zawahri.
1) If Al Qaeda was a colour what colour would it be?
2) Where do you stand on premarital lashings? should the couple wait ?
3) Do you have a favourite AK-47 ? if so does it have a name ?
4) If you had to behead 3 famous people alive or dead who would it be and why ?
5) Why does the nation of Islam dress so funny in those suits and dickie bows?
