Global Jihad Internet Forum Pledges Allegiance to Ayman al-Zawahiri as New Al-Qa'ida Central Amir...but calls him "Anwar"

UPDATE (8:02 p.m. EST, 16 June 2011): The forum administrators have since fixed their Freudian typographical error. They have corrected the thread title from "Anwar al-Zawahiri" to "Ayman al-Zawahiri" and have also corrected the name in the image above.

The al-Jihad al-'Alami (Global Jihad) jihadi-takfiri Internet forum has started a thread "pledging allegiance" to the new Al-Qa'ida Central (AQC) amir (leader), Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was named the new amir in what seems to be a statement from AQC released early this morning. In the first post of the thread, it reads, هنا نبايع الشيخ أيمن الظواهري حفظه الله
, "pledge allegiance here to Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri, may God protect him."

However, in the title of the thread and the JPG, it seems they made a typographical error, calling the Egyptian medical doctor "Anwar al-Zawahiri." Wishful thinking?
