Al-Qaida's No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri said last month's US-sponsored Middle East peace conference was a "betrayal" aimed at selling out the Palestinians in a new message, the terror group's first reaction to the gathering. The audiotape released Friday by Osama bin Laden's deputy was the latest al-Qaida attempt to rally Muslims behind it by using the widespread bitterness felt towards Israel over the Palestinian issue.
