Al-Zarqawi's family says don't come home Abu

In a classic case of how to lose friends and infuriate people, al-Zarqawi has learnt that his family don’t want a bar of him "until doomsday". 

Family members of Jordanian-born al Qaeda in Iraq chief Abu Musab al-Zarqawi have renounced the terror leader, telling King Abdullah II on Sunday that they would "sever links with him until doomsday."

Al-Zarqawi, whose real name is Ahmed Fadheel Nazzal al-Khalayleh, claimed responsibility for the November 9 deadly attacks on three Amman hotels, which killed 60 people.

In half-page advertisements in Jordan’s three main newspapers, 57 members of the al-Khalayleh family, including al-Zarqawi’s brother and cousin, also reiterated their strong allegiance to the king.

Al-Zarqawi bizarrley also has threatened to kill the King of Jordan by beheading him.

Mmm might be a little difficult if rumours turn out to be true and al-Zarqawi is atoning for his sins before Allah.
