      Al-Qaeda’s leader has urged Egypt to cancel its peace treaty with Israel and to establish Islamic rule, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

      He said the goal is to stop Israel from turning Jerusalem into a Jewish city.

      Ayman al-Zawahri issued his 10th message to Egypt since taking over al-Qaeda’s leadership after founder Osama bin Laden was killed in an American raid in Pakistan last year.

      His 47-minute audio recording was posted Sunday on jihadi websites, according to the AP.

      He charged that Egypt’s ruling military council takes orders from the United States.

      Al-Zawahri called on the Islamic movements to unite against what he described as "the secular American schemes that only seeks evil to Egypt."

      He continued to criticize Pakistan for demolishing bin Laden’s house to prevent it from becoming a shrine.
