**UPDATED BELOW** Al-Qaeda Endorses Democrat’s “Cut & Run” Plan…..
Just as I said it would happen, our enemies around the world are celebrating Speaker Pelosi.
A statement purportedly from the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq hails the defeat of Republicans in the US mid-term polls.
The audio message, whose authenticity has not been verified, was published on Islamist websites and was said to be the voice of Abu Hamza al-Muhajir.
The Democrats’ victory in Tuesday’s Congressional elections was a move in the right direction, the speaker said. “The American people have taken a step in the right path to come out of their predicament… they voted for a level of reason,” the voice said. Muhajir, also known as Ayyub al-Masri, has been identified by US forces as the successor to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, killed in a raid in June 2006.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Friday called U.S. President George W. Bush’s defeat in congressional elections a victory for Iran. …”This issue (the elections) is not a purely domestic issue for America, but it is the defeat of Bush’s hawkish policies in the world,” Khamenei said in remarks reported by Iran’s student news agency ISNA on Friday.
“Since Washington’s hostile and hawkish policies have always been against the Iranian nation, this defeat is actually an obvious victory for the Iranian nation. … The result of this election indicates that the majority of American people are dissatisfied and are fed up with the policies of the American administration,” the IRNA state news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
Khamenei said military maneuvers in the Gulf this week in which Iranian forces tested new missile systems showed Iran was ready to face any threat.
But, he said: “With the scandalous defeat of America’s policies in Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon and Afghanistan, America’s threats are empty threats on an international scale.”
It really tells you something when a terrorist group and an Islamist-run nation — both bent on the destruction of the United States — praise the Democrats’ election win.
**UPDATE** – Here’s even more from al-Qaeda on their celebration of the Democrats’ win….. reminding the world of the synergy of AQ’s talking points and the Democrats’ talking points.
“We will not rest from our Jihad until we are under the olive trees of Rumieh and we have destroyed the dirty black house — which is called the White House,” al-Muhajir said.
Describing George W. Bush as “the most stupid president” in U.S. history, the Al Qaeda leader reached out to the Muslim world and said his group was winning faster than expected in Iraq.
The U.S. president’s policy had enabled the militant group to achieve their goal of fighting more Americans, said the Al Qaeda leader.
“We call the lame duck (Bush) not to hurry up in escaping the same way the defense minister did,” he said, referring to the removal of Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary following the Democrats’ victory in Midterm elections.
“They are getting ready to leave, because they are no longer capable of staying,” the Al Qaeda leader said.
“Remain steadfast in the battlefield you coward,” he called on the U.S president.
Were these statements uttered by al-Qaeda or Howard Dean, Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore? It is simply astounding that it is hard to tell the difference!
