Zawahiri: Obama Win Proves Loss In Iraq

First, it is very telling to see what our watchdog media finds to be the most significant points of the latest message from Al Qaeda.

From a (finally) outraged Associated Press:

Al-Qaida No. 2 insults Obama in new audio message

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri is criticizing Barack Obama in a new message, calling him a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites.

Al-Zawahri says in an audio message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X. He calls Obama a “house negro.”

The audio plays over still pictures of al-Zawahri, Malcolm X praying, and Obama with Jewish leaders.

In the first public al-Qaida comment about Obama’s electoral victory, al-Zawahri adds that Obama’s plan to shift troops to Afghanistan is doomed to failure, because Afghans will resist.

Gosh, a terrorist has finally done something to tick our watchdog media off. Mr. Zawahiri has called Mr. Obama a “house negro.”

(Of course it will be little noticed that his remarks also include Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.)

Now look at the transcript of Mr. Zawahiri’s message, courtesy of Fox News:

TRANSCRIPT: English Translation of Zawahiri Message

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

In the Name of Allah, and all Praise is due to Allah, and Prayers and Peace on the Messenger of Allah and on his family, Companions and allies.

Muslim brothers everywhere: Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His blessings. As for what comes after:

Barack Obama has won the presidency of the United States of America, and on this occasion, I would like to send several messages.

First, a message of congratulations to the Muslim Ummah on the American people’s admission of defeat in Iraq. Although the evidence of America’s defeat in Iraq appeared years ago, Bush and his administration continued to be stubborn and deny the brilliant midday sun. If Bush has achieved anything, it is in his transfer of America’s disaster and predicament to his successor. But the American people, by electing Obama, declared its anxiety and apprehension about the future towards which the policy of the likes of Bush is leading it, and so it decided to support someone calling for withdrawal from Iraq.

The second of these messages is to the new president of the United States. I tell him: you have reached the position of president, and a heavy legacy of failure and crimes awaits you. A failure in Iraq to which you have admitted, and a failure in Afghanistan to which the commanders of your army have admitted. The other thing to which I want to bring your attention is that what you’ve announced about how you’re going to reach an understanding with Iran and pull your troops out of Iraq to send them to Afghanistan is a policy which was destined for failure before it was born. It appears that you don’t know anything about the Muslim Ummah and its history, and the fate of the traitors who cooperated with the invaders against it, and don’t know anything about the history of Afghanistan and its free and defiant Muslim people. And if you still want to be stubborn about America’s failure in Afghanistan, then remember the fate of Bush and Pervez Musharraf, and the fate of the Soviets and British before them. And be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them.

As for the crimes of America which await you, it appears that you continue to be captive to the same criminal American mentality towards the world and towards the Muslims. The Muslim Ummah received with extreme bitterness your hypocritical statements to and stances towards Israel, which confirmed to the Ummah that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims.

You represent the direct opposite of honorable black Americans like Malik al-Shabazz, or Malcolm X (may Allah have mercy on him). You were born to a Muslim father, but you chose to stand in the ranks of the enemies of the Muslims, and pray the prayer of the Jews, although you claim to be Christian, in order to climb the rungs of leadership in America. And so you promised to back Israel, and you threatened to strike the tribal regions in Pakistan, and to send thousands more troops to Afghanistan, in order for the crimes of the American Crusade in it to continue. And last Monday, your aircraft killed 40 Afghan Muslims at a wedding party in Kandahar. As for Malik al-Shabazz (may Allah have mercy on him), he was born to a black pastor killed by white bigots, but Allah favored him with guidance to Islam, and so he prided himself on his fraternity with the Muslims, and he condemned the crimes of the Crusader West against the weak and oppressed, and he declared his support for peoples resisting American occupation, and he spoke about the worldwide revolution against the Western power structure.

That’s why it wasn’t strange that Malik al-Shabazz (may Allah have mercy on him) was killed, while you have climbed the rungs of the presidency to take over the leadership of the greatest criminal force in the history of mankind and the leadership of the most violent Crusade ever against the Muslims.

And in you and in Colin Powell, Rice and your likes, the words of Malcolm X (may Allah have mercy on him) concerning “House Negroes” are confirmed.

You also must appreciate, as you take over the presidency of America during its Crusade against Islam and Muslims, that you are neither facing individuals nor organizations, but are facing a Jihadi 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.

As for the third message, it is to the Muslim Ummah. I tell it: America, the criminal, trespassing Crusader, continues to be the same as ever, so we must continue to harm it, in order for it to come to its senses, because its criminal, expansionist Crusader project in your lands has only been neutralized by the sacrifices of your sons, the Mujahideen. This, then, is the path, so stick to it.

As for the fourth message, it is to the lions of Islam, the Mujahideen. I tell them: may Allah reward you in the best way for your historic heroics, which have ruined America’s plans and rendered its projects ineffective. So be firm and resolute. Your enemy’s stagger has begun, so don’t stop hitting him.

And I say to my brothers the Mujahideen in Iraq in general and the Islamic State of Iraq in particular, and to its Amir, the towering mountain Abu ‘Umar al-Baghdadi: your enemy has admitted defeat, and the forthcoming stage is expected to be dominated by conspiracies and betrayals in order to cover the American withdrawal, so you must persevere, for victory is in an hour of perseverance.

And I tell my brothers, the lions of Islam in Somalia: rejoice in victory and conquest. America is gathering its wounds in Iraq, and Ethiopia is looking for a way out, and for this reason, the stage of conspiracies and machinations has begun. So hold tightly to the truth for which you have given your lives, and don’t put down your weapons before the Mujahid state of Islam and Tawheed has been set up in Somalia.

And I tell all Mujahideen everywhere: the Hubal of the age has begun to falter and recede, and Allah has granted you success and honored you by making you the most important cause of that, so be resolute on the path of Jihad until you meet your Lord while He is pleased with you.

And my fifth message is to all the world’s weak and oppressed. I tell them: 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. And the Mujahideen of Islam, by the grace of Allah, continue to be the spearhead of the resistance against it to restrain it from injustice, aggression and arrogance.

As for my final message, it is to the American people. I tell it: you incurred defeat and losses from the foolish actions of Bush and his gang, and at the same time, Shaykh Usama bin Ladin (may Allah preserve him) sent you a message to withdraw from the lands of the Muslims and refrain from stealing their treasures and interfering in their affairs. So choose for yourself whatever you like, and bear the consequences of your choice, and as you judge, you will be judged.

And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and may Allah send prayers and peace on our Master Muhammad and his family and Companions.

      Note how studiously the media will ignore Zawahiri’s comments about Iraq.

      Meanwhile, Mr. Zawahiri seems quite conversant with Mr. Obama’s relationship with the Reverend Minister Farrakhan, who is heavily complicit in the death of Malcolm Little — if not the trigger man himself.

      If so, this is quite a well aimed dig at Mr. Obama’s rise to power.

        A few things that I think about:

        1. Where is bin Ladin’s take on all of this?
        2. “Your enemy’s stagger has begun, so don’t stop hitting him.” Prelude to an attack? Many lines in this speach seem to say, the enemy has faultered, time to charge!
        3. “although you claim to be Christian, in order to climb the rungs of leadership in America.” As always, just enough truth to make what he is saying believable.
        4. I’m afriad Obama is going to hear this and believe it. Seems he is already leaning that way anyway, Zawahiri may just be right about Iraq.

      2. proreason says:

        How quickly some supporters abandon ship after an election.

        Like Obamy’s voter-fraud implementation team, Zawahiri has not been paid for his support quickly enough.

      3. proreason says:

        “I tell them: 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”

        Hopeychangey isn’t doing it for this chap so far.

      4. bill says:

        Liberals now have their cause to get al Qaeda, dare insult our socialist messiah as a ‘house negro’ … Now they have done it. Probably going to keep Guantanamo open out of spite now.

      5. Gladius et Scutum says:

        Sometimes the most interesting thing about a propaganda message is trying to determine exactly at whom it is aimed. I think the refrences to Malcolm X are the best clue. Traditional moslems regard the Nation of Islam as some bizzare cult. World-wide, most moslems would never have heard of Malcom X.

        I think the message is aimed at black Americans. The Nation of Islam is better entranched in the black America than its membership would suggest. Street gangs even incorporate some Nation of Islam symbolism. Black “Christian” ministers pay homage to Farrakhan.

        Now for something completely different!

        A Prayer for the Tribal Areas of Pakistan:
        A plague on your fields
        And a plague on your flocks
        Inshalah (God willing)
        You will all eat rocks!

      6. Trialdog says:

        We should ask a college professor whether Malcom X really would refer to Obama as a “house negro.” Seems to me there was some prominent well recognized University of Illinois professor in the news recently – something about him living in Obama’s neighborhood – and I seem to recall he has a picture of Malcom X on his door – maybe some reporter could ask the well respected professor whether Malcom X would think of Obama as a “house negro” and what it means exactly.

      7. wardmama4 says:

        -‘And be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious’- al Zawahiri lies just like the msm.
        -‘while you have climbed the rungs of the presidency to take over the leadership of the greatest criminal force in the history of mankind and the leadership of the most violent Crusade ever against the Muslims’- America could have (i.e. that it has the ability) to ‘nuke Iraq & Afghanistan until they glow’ – that America did not do that but rather hunted down the specific (al-Qaida) terrorists that were part and parcel of 9/11 and of course to remove the regime of Saddam that was not only catering to al-Qaida but also the Palestinian terrorists.

        Hearing this gem of Baghdad Bob propaganda – I expect to hear that OBL is dead, the mullahs in Iran have been displaced by a revolution or that Iraq decided to repay the US by selling it 90% of it’s oil at a reduced rate. In other words – al-Qaida is a drowning rat and they are beginning to suspect that the two-faced, fork-tongued petty little man-child elected to the POTUS might not play nice as they were lead by the msm to believe he would.

        I have to agree – that the Left and msm will now turn on al-Qaida for insulting The One ™. Those who insult The One ™ must be silenced. (Gee, where ever have I heard that one before?!?)

      8. kurt says:

        Hey, knucklehead muslim fascist pig — watch your back ’cause we’re hunting trash like you every single day in Iraq and Afghanistan!

        Look forward to seeing the video from military aircraft showing your destruction!

      9. sheehanjihad says:

        ol Zawi baby needs to have that dent in his forehead enhanced with my new “bacon grease coated tater stick noggin therapy”. I will be more than happy to apply it in person too. “Apply as needed, or every time subject awakens”. (Side affects my include splitting headache, loss of blood, loss of consciousness, stumbling, lurching gait, inability to pray more than once, stained prayer rug, and an uncontrollable urge to worship an empty container of Pringles.) Repeated use may hopefully lead to death.

      10. take_no_prisoners says:

        This may be a little off topic but does anyone want to guess when the Israelis are going to take out the Iranian nuclear threat? I told my wife that they would wait until after the election but will act before Obama is sworn in on 1/20/09. Can anyone offer an insight that might further narrow the window of opportunity?

      11. proreason says:

        Why would they wait?

        Before the end of the year.

        Wonder what it will do to the market? It could help I suppose.

        But I’m predicting Dow 5000 by EOY.

        The Dow fell 90% in the Depression. Obamy needs to come close to that or the disaster he saves us from won’t be historic enough.

        That way he can save us from the greedy capitalists as well as the jackboot Israeli’s.

      12. take_no_prisoners says:

        My best guess is New Years Eve or New Years Day–unless there is some Muslim holiday between now and 1/20/09 that would be more distracting to the Iranians. They probably want to get the job done when no one else in the world is paying enough attention to mount any effective interference before it is a fait accompli.

      13. Consilience says:

        Osama’s buddy’s are baiting the thug messiah (a fool’s errand). They know the bastard is an empty suit (ala Bill Clinton) and the media sees nothing by thug messiah is pissed. The media is upset because all the models of “why they hate us” don’t work where they call the thug messiah the house negro—those pesky radical Islamofascists…(of course, Bush made it all up, and when Bush is back in Crawford, all will be well)
        Folks, we’re screwed. Our economy is in the tank (partly thanks to Bush and that stooge Paulson and some really stupid dems and repubs in Congress) and it ain’t getting better anytime soon. The thug will be trying to talk—or the other extreme, he will kill our men in uniform being stupid.
        The thug messiah is a train-wreck of generational proportions.

      14. BillK says:

        That’s it – al Qaeda must now attend racial sensitivity training.

        Had they used the six letter “N” word we would have been forced to use nukes…

      15. Liberals Demise says:

        This just in from the powers that be:
        Zawahiris’ supposedly 72 virgin ladies in waiting have been knocked up by the President Elects father. When asked, the father replied, “You tell that old raghead the house negros’ pappy rocked their boat!” I guess we will have to wait for Zawahiri to die to get his comment on how he feels about this incident.
        Back to you Steve…..in the studio.

      16. mathews says:

        sad to say compared to Steele the NObama has been the the Democrat’s Senate Negro, and now is the Democrat’s number One…

      17. Chinnubie says:

        Calling BHO a “House Negro” is hopefully going to trigger a reality check that these type of Muslims want ALL Americans dead anyway they can.

      18. jcheney says:

        I’m moving to Ireland.

      19. pinandpuller says:

        That’s House Negro In Chief to you buddy!

      20. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

        So that’s what HNIC stands for. Huh….learn something new every day!

      21. Lipstick on a PIAPS says:

        “House Negro”?!?!? Why you Al Quada BASTARDS this means WAR!!!!!!!! Oh, wait never mind, we are already there. Welcome aboard Lame Stream Media! Guess you finally figured all of this out! ROFLMAO

      22. Liberals Demise says:

        New bumper sticker seen, “HNIC for President”.

      23. pinandpuller says:

        Is it a good thing or a bad thing to call a half-African leader “Chief”? Can he be honorary Kansas City mascot? I haven’t heard of any professional sports teams named “The Squirrels”.

      24. BatK says:

        since we’re politically correcting ourselves to death in this country, are we NOW allowed to call these Muslim TERRORISTS “racist” or are they still the much maligned “practitioners of the religion of peace” who just have some “radicals” that don’t speak on behalf of the whole? Also curious why the UN consistently names Israel as the worst violator of human rights but completely ignores the brutality Isalm performs on its own women let alone any “infidel”… just sayin… apparently it’s NOT racist to preach death to the Jews/Israel, but heaven forbid you say a word about a black man

      25. Helena says:

        BatK – The Right Reverend Al Sharpton has declared that referring to The One as a House Negro is unacceptable racist hate speech no matter who says it. So, yes we can.

      26. Steve says:

        “The Right Reverend Al Sharpton has declared that referring to The One as a House Negro is unacceptable racist hate speech no matter who says it.”

        Mind you, this is the same Reverend who has called Rice and Powell “House Negroes.”

      27. sheehanjihad says:

        so I guess the pot cant call the kettle black after all!

      28. pinandpuller says:

        Rice isn’t HIS house negro. Powell must be a White House negro based on his endorsement of Obama. Maybe they can redo the old slave quarters in the basement.

        Just curious-is Omar Epps a “House” negro?
