This article is for anyone out there who is foolish enough to think that terrorists hate America because George Bush is our President. The truth of the matter is that terrorists hate America because we are different. They hate us because we drink beer on hot Saturday afternoons in July, because we allow our women to drive cars, because we don’t require public whippings for marital infidelity. They hate us because we listen to Rock and Roll, because we don’t all pray to Mecca 3 times a day, because we enjoy bacon and ham, and because we allow our citizens to have freedom of speech and religion. They hate us, in short, because we are Americans. They despise everything our country stands for. It does not matter who is President, they have always hated us and will continue to do so. For them , the only difference between George Bush and Barack Obama is that Bush brought the fight to them, and they believe Obama will not. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that Radical Islam is something other than Fascism. That is what it is. Fascism. Same as Hitler.
Al Qaeda No. 2 in Video Calls Obama Dishonorable
Wednesday, November 19, 2008
CAIRO, Egypt — Al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri insulted Barack Obama in the terror group's first reaction to his election, calling him a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites.
The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Al-Zawahiri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
Al-Zawahiri also called Obama — along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — "house negroes."
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahiri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But Al Qaeda supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house negroes."
The message also includes old footage of speeches by Malcolm X in which he explains the term, saying black slaves who worked in their white masters' house were more servile than those who worked in the fields. Malcolm X used the term to criticize black leaders he accused of not standing up to whites.
The 11-minute 23-second video features the audio message by al-Zawahiri, who appears only in a still image, along with other images, including one of Obama wearing a Jewish skullcap as he meets with Jewish leaders. In his speech, al-Zawahiri refers to a Nov. 5 U.S. airstrike attack in Afghanistan, meaning the video was made after that date.
Al-Zawahiri said Obama's election has not changed American policies he said are aimed at oppressing Muslims and others.
"America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always," the deputy of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden said.
He said Obama's plan to shift troops to Afghanistan is doomed to failure, because Afghans will resist.
"Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them," he said.
Al-Zawahiri did not threaten specific attacks, but warned Obama that he was "facing a Jihadi (holy war) awakening and renaissance which is shaking the pillars of the entire Islamic world; and this is the fact which you and your government and country refuse to recognize and pretend not to see."
He said Obama's victory showed Americans acknowledged that President George W. Bush's policies were a failure and that the result was an "admission of defeat in Iraq."
But Obama's professions of support for Israel during the election campaign "confirmed to the Ummah (Islamic world) that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims," al-Zawahiri said.
These guys suck. No amount of backpedaling and groveling by the USA is going to change the fact that they hate us, and nothing we can do, short of mass suicide, is going to make them stop attacking us. So, the choice is ours, or rather our governments. I ask you, President- Elect Obama, are you going to take the fight to these assholes, or can we look forward to 4 years of Clinton/Carter appeasement that will embolden and strengthen our enemies? Never mind, I know the answer already.
