Cairo, Jun 3: Just a day before the US president's trip to the Middle-East, a deputy al-Qaeda chief has reportedly released a message in which he has denounced Barack Obama claiming that the Muslim community has been the target of US' 'bloody messages' in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has also urged the Egyptians to reject the president.

Obama was expected to deliver a speech to Muslim world in an attempt to heal the rifts caused between the United States and Middle East.

Al-Qaeda's second in command Ayman-al Zawahiri in a video posted on al-Qaeda's website said that 'criminal' Obama's 'bloody messages' wont be concealed by public relations campaigns. Calling him an enemy to Islam, he labeled the president a 'house slave'.

He further added that the Egyptian officials who will be welcoming the president are 'slaves' and said they have turned the country into 'international station of torture in America's war on Islam'.
