Now who said Al Queda was stupid?

November 22, 2008

It’s been reported all over the place that the #2 man,  Ayman al-Zawahiri, of Al Queda called President Obama a house negro.  My response was immediate as I stood outside my building reading the Fox News ticker.  Who the hell cares what some tired Al Queda man has to say about our President?  At this point do we even respect anything they have to say?  I must admit that I was a little caught up in my own financial meltdown, while watching my 401(k) literally go up in smoke.

A little to my surprise, there were plenty of people that did care and theories were popping up all over the place.  Once I start hearing the theories, I too had to examine why Al Queda was even bothering?

For them it was done for the best of reasons.  I found their reasoning highly amusing.  Get this, they don’t want the world, especially Muslims, to like President Obama.  That would make their task of keeping a war going that much harder.  Of course their is the added fact that President Obama has stated many times that he would be coming after them with a vengeance.

My question to Al Queda:  How’s that plan working so far?

Al Qaeda’s true problem with Obama has indeed nothing to do with the color of his skin. By proposing to meet Iran’s Ahmadinejad without preconditions instead of just bombing him out, the American president-elect thinks outside of the confrontation box. The radicals just hate that. And above all, they hate the idea of the United States resuming the chase of Al Qaeda operatives in the mountains of the Pakistan-Afghanistan borders. He’s coming to them, how could they not react fiercely?


There is something else, which I witness everyday in the streets of Casablanca, where I live: Muslims tend to claim Obama as their own—because he’s black, because he comes from an oppressed minority, because his middle name is Hussein. I presume this holds true for all the nonradical Muslims (the vast majority of them) throughout the world. Not that they think Obama is a Muslim himself—he made clear that he was not. Yet he could have been. His father was. Anyway, this man looks like a “brother” to many Muslims, which is indeed a good thing for the prospect of global peace.

Not surprisingly, Zawahiri’s video message targeted this specific point: “Obama is not a Muslim, he’s a renegade who abandoned his ancestor’s religion to embrace the ‘crusaders faith’ and the ‘Zionists’ ideology’,” Zawahiri suggests. The genuine message being: please don’t like him!

Well, too bad for them: we do. We will like him more, of course, if he keeps his promise of backing out of Iraq within 16 months and putting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process back on track. Meanwhile, let’s all of us, Muslims and Westerners, take advantage of the honeymoon period. And let’s enjoy the terrorists’ embarrassment: it’s a rare occasion.

For once we Americans can take a moment and laugh at the folly of Al Queda and recoginize that President Obama’s rise could possibly lead to their fall.

  2. Ah here comes the terrorist again. Jeez. F*#k
    Al Queda right along with that suppose to be dead Ayman al-Zawahiri. (oops sorry Iris)This story is meant to start up the fear mongering and doubt about President Obama’s ability to deal with the problems we face in this world. There is definitely more immediate situations to deal with and I don’t think our new President will be side tracked by this story either.

  3. On November 4, as Obama was celebrated for his election by 240,000 supporters at Chicago’s Grant Park, there was one man watching the event on television 10,000km away who was thrilled to hear the news. In a Tokyo apartment, his wife
