CAIRO — Al-Qaida's American spokesman has accused the United States of colluding with military leaders in Egypt to topple the democratically-elected president last summer, saying the U.S. supports the Egyptian army because it "protects the borders of the Jewish state."

In a video posted on militant websites on Friday, Adam Gadahn, a former Osama bin Laden spokesman, also criticized Egypt's current rulers, saying the regime has been unchanged for 60 years.

He described the army-backed overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July as a "bloody secular and fascist coup."

He also urged Muslims around the world to fight the United States to diminish its power and influence so they can choose their own governments.

Gadahn uses the name "Azzam the American."
