The radical Al-Qaida has finally given their opinion of the Barck Hussein Obama victory and it's not a pretty response! If Obama needed a "heads up" about this radical group or maybe a little added incentive, he's got it now. In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect—along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice—"house negroes."
Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used the racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he 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. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
I guess we all have our insights into what HONORABLE means! :-(
Wouldn't it be interesting IF Osama is caught by Obama soon after taking office. I am sure Obama has as much interest in getting the #1 man as anyone. And in so doing he would elevate his status even higher than it is now. Could he, or any man, handle such praise and adulation? I doubt it.
The message included 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 eleven minute message features the audio message by al-Zawahri, 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-Zawahri refers to a Nov. 5 U.S. airstrike attack in Afghanistan, meaning the video was made after that date.
Our politicians had Obama in Arab dress and al-Zawahari has him in Jewish garb. Sometimes a guy just can win for losing. :-)
Al-Zawahri said Obama's election has not changed American policies he said are aimed at oppressing Muslims and others. I don't know about that, but what I am struck by is Obama's reliance on Bill Clinton's staff. CHANGE? Did all of these people (three dozen to date) CHANGE from who they were in the 90's or am I missing something here? Since Obama is still President-elect, let's hold off on judging.
Opps! Too late for El Rushbo and Hannity to withhold judging.
