Al-Qaida spokesman sets peace conditions with US

world Updated: Jun 20, 2010 19:59 IST

Al-Qaida's American-born spokesman has repeated the terror group's conditions for peace with America, calling on President Barack Obama to withdraw his troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, end support for Israel, stop intervening in the affairs of Muslims and free Muslim prisoners.

In the second, 24-minute part of a video released in March and posted on militant Web sites today, Adam Gadahn said the Democrats' loss in January of the Massachusetts Senate seat underlined Obama's falling popularity.

In white robes and turban, Gadahn told Obama: "You're no longer the popular man you once were, a year ago or so."

Gadahn is wanted by the FBI since 2004 with a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction. He is also known as Azzam al-Amriki, Arabic for American.
