Al-Qaeda urged Syrian rebels to save some of their anger for Israel and the United States.

Ayman al-Zawahri, the successor to the slain leader Osama bin Laden, in a video posting Wednesday denounced Syrian President Bashar Assad as “America’s partner in the war on Islam in the name of fighting terror.”

But while he commended Syrians, many of them Islamists, who rose up against the Assad regime four months ago, Zawahri said the revolt should reach well beyond Damascus.

“Tell both America and Obama: Our powerful uprising will not stop until we raise the victorious banner of jihad over Jerusalem,” he said.
