Al Qaeda's Gadahn Makes Demands In New Video

American al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn called on U.S. President Barack Obama to withdraw all personnel from Muslim lands, in a video dictating several demands carried by U.S. monitoring groups Sunday.

"You must pull every last one of your soldiers, spies, security advisers... and all other American personnel, ships and aircraft out of every Muslim land from Afghanistan to Zanzibar," Gadahn said.

In the 24-minute long video, which was carried by the monitoring groups IntelCenter and SITE Intelligence, Gadahn was quoted as telling Obama to "end all support, both moral and material, to Israel."

He also called onto the U.S. president to "stop all support and aid, be it military, political, economic or otherwise, to the hated regimes of the Muslim world."

"This includes the so-called development aid," he added.

The United States must "cease all interference in the religion, society, politics, economy and government of the Islamic world."

He also called for the release of "all Muslim captives" held in U.S. prisons "regardless of whether they have been recipients of what you call a fair trial or not."

Born in 1978, Gadahn is a native of southern California and appeared in several videotapes for al Qaeda since 2004.

U.S. authorities put a $1million bounty on the 31-year-old over his involvement in a number of terrorist activities, including providing aid and services for al Qaeda.
