DUBAI (AFP) - Al-Qaeda has warned Algerians against re-electing ferocious enemy President Abdelaziz Bouteflika in Thursdays presidential vote, a US group which monitors Islamist websites said. The Algerian regime supports the West by seeking to destroy true Islam, Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said in a statement issued on jihadist forums, the SITE Intelligence Group reported on Sunday. It said Bouteflika, who is running for a third term, is a ferocious enemy towards Muslims. The Al-Qaeda group called on Muslims to overthrow rulers whose legislation fails to follow Islamic law. Muslims, it added according to SITE, must seek training and jihad, abstain from the re-election of Bouteflika and his like, and provide money and moral support to the Mujahideen. Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb seeks to unify Muslim groups in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco with emerging groups in countries bordering the Sahara. They include Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, and Eritrea. The group claimed a series of deadly suicide bombings in Algeria last year.
