Al-Qaeda In Iraq Hails Democrat Victory

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 Calls Democrat Victory a Win For Iran….

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!

  1. Republicans fight the War on Terror.

    Democrats fight the War on Bush.

  2. 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.

    White Supremacists and Skinhead Nazi’s have often cheered when Republicans win. That doesn’t make the GOP the Nazi Skinhead/White Power Party.

    The number one item that has continually cheered Al Quaeda has been the incompetence of American leadership in waging the WoT, not the election of Democrats.

    Whats really telling Bruce is what your statement says about yourself. You have so bought into partisan head-blindness that for you only the GOP wages the War on Terror. To you, Democrats are incapable of it, no matter whether their proposals are reasonable and sound or not. The War on Terror isn’t as important to you as your personal War on the Democrats. And I think thats true for many others here, Michigan-Matt, NDT, V the K, etc.

    The War on Terror is waged by, and will be won by, Americans Bruce. Not by Republicans, not by Democrats, but byAmericans. If you think otherwise, then your priorities are seriously out of whack.

    You apparently are only capable of seeing Republicans or Democrats. And its why you were so surprised on Tuesday. For you, anyone that raised concerns about the war was labeled as a liberal Democratic anti-American traitor. You couldn’t see that they were just ordinary Americans, not party fanatics such as yourself. And neither could the GOP leadership, which is why they got trounced so badly.

  3. Yes, all over the Middle East, Islamofascists are erecting statues of Nancy Pelosi-mujadeen.

    And, of course, the majority of Americans, who oppose Bush’s foreign policy, have rushed to Wal-Mart to purchase prayer rugs so they can face Mecca thrice daily and sing the praises of Allah, along with their al Qaeda brethren. Why, here at Starbucks, I’ve seen half a dozen women in Versace burkas swilling lattes and reading the NY Times.

  4. Patrick-

    Only post-Sept. 11 Americans are serious about fighting the War on Terror as a WAR. Most Democrats are still Sept. 10th Americans and think this is a law enforcement operation.

    You STILL have not answered my question about WHAT the Democrats HAVE DONE or WILL DO to fight the War on Terror.

    FACTS, man, FACTS!

    Comment by Bruce (GayPatriot) — November 10, 2006 @ 2:13 pm - November 10, 2006

  5. Well let me know when you can tell us what the Republicans did the last six years to fight it other than muck up the front line of the war in Afghanistan by ignoring it so they could go fight a war in Iraq. And I give full blame to the idiot Dems who were stupid enough to give Bush a blank check to do it. I can guarantee the first step in fighting and WINNING a war on terror is to NOT do something stupid like trust Bush and his neocon crew again.

    Comment by Inthemajoritynow — November 10, 2006 @ 2:47 pm - November 10, 2006

  6. why don’t you stop whining about W and come up with your own ideas? Or do you don’t know?
    It may be the terrorists’ big mouths that may re-encourage people to fight in Iraq. If such a demand is made, will the Dems follow the will of the people?

    Comment by Rachel — November 10, 2006 @ 3:01 pm - November 10, 2006

  7. Rachel, no one is whining about W, they are whining about the fact he isn’t winning in Iraq, which is kind of his job. And still is, regardless of the Democratic control of Congress. He is the Commander-in-Chief still. Where’s his fucking plan to win this, since after all it was his fucking idea to start it in the first place? Or would you rather still argue that Iraq was the hot bed of terrorism pre invasion that it clearly is today?

    Comment by Inthemajoritynow — November 10, 2006 @ 3:04 pm - November 10, 2006

  8. His plan is staying the damn course to no avail. He’s still responsible for this war that he started and he has no idea how to get out of it. That’s because he should never have been appointed and then elected in the first place.

    Comment by fnln — November 10, 2006 @ 3:10 pm - November 10, 2006

  9. Here’s an idea. How about we pull the hell out of Iraq and take all that damn money wasted there and use it to secure the borders, ports, and entryways into this country instead. How about we implement the suggestions of the 9/11 commission. How about we quit pretending that Iraq had ANYTHING to do with 9/11, which it didn’t and do something reasonable (constitutional) here. Geez, it is not that complicated. It would mean however, that George Bush made a big mistake in starting a stupid war in Iraq for no damn reason whatsoever. We couldn’t have that though!

    Well, now he and his party have been checked and it is about damn time too!

    Idiots.

    You STILL have not answered my question about WHAT the Democrats HAVE DONE or WILL DO to fight the War on Terror.

    FACTS, man, FACTS!

    You want to know what the Democrats are doing for the War on Terror Bruce?

    I’ll tell you. They are joining the military, and going to join the fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. But do you know what? They aren’t doing it because they are Democrats or Republicans. They do it because they are Americans and because they know thats the way to win a war.

    So Bruce, what are you? An American or a Republican?
    I ask, because I think that anyone that reads this blog would fairly get the impression that you care far more about being a Republican than an American. And I think that you also believe that its impossible to be both a Democrat and an American. Why else would you equate Democrats with terrorists as you have done in this post today?

    So Bruce, tell us, which do you think is more important, that America win the War on Terror? Or that just the Republicans do? And also tell us please, on this Veterans Day, do you honor all American Veterans? Or just the Republican ones? Can you shake the hand of Murtha, look him in the eye and say “thank you for your service” with unfeigned simple gratitude? Are you capable of putting aside the partisanship by which you run your life for just the few minutes needed to make that small gesture? Are you American enough to do that?

  11. Patrick-

    Thanks for AGAIN not answering my challenge to you from DAYS ago.

    The FACTS are that the Democrat Party has NO IDEAS and NO PLAN for fighting World War III.

    Your non-answer proves my point quite well.

    Comment by Bruce (GayPatriot) — November 10, 2006 @ 5:31 pm - November 10, 2006

  12. Oh, and Patrick… TOMORROW is Veteran’s Day. I guess John Kerry was wrong about where all the stupid people wind up getting stuck in.

    And if I ever had the displeasure to meet John “ABSCAM” Murtha, I would spit in his face and ask him to apologize to the Marines serving our nation NOW for slandering them.  I’d also ask him if he still likes meeting with Arabs with bribes.

    Comment by Bruce (GayPatriot) — November 10, 2006 @ 5:37 pm - November 10, 2006

  13. You really seem to be a strict adherent to the views of the Islamist folks. You take them seriously, pay attention to their rhetoric, and fall for their nonsense. You should try taking the views of your fellow Americans as seriously as you do the Islamists. And the American people just spoke: very loudly.

    Comment by jimmy — November 10, 2006 @ 6:32 pm - November 10, 2006

  14. Jimmy-

    I listen to what the Islamists say because they have repeatedly (since WTC, 1993) tried and succeeded in KILLING thousands of Americans.

    Except for American liberals shooting out the windows of campaign offices and attacking voters on Election Day, I do not feel my life is threatened by my fellow Americans.

    Too bad you can’t see the difference.

    I guess you would have thought all was well if you lived in 1943, too.

    Comment by GayPatriot — November 10, 2006 @ 6:36 pm - November 10, 2006

  15. Bruce, you have the patience of a saint to deal with Gryph (and lower case clanners) over and over and over.

    Gryph writes: “The War on Terror is waged by, and will be won by, Americans Bruce. Not by Republicans, not by Democrats, but byAmericans. If you think otherwise, then your priorities are seriously out of whack.”

    THIS coming from the guy who thought all our soldiers were torturers and reprobates… who still thinks that the military brass is incompetent and negligent… who argues that the Commander in Chief is a liar, an incompetent, and a fool… who demeans those we seek to protect in Iraq and help build a new democracy in the Middle East as fanatics and religionists… and literally the guy at the FRONT of the line when it came time to break with tradition and criticize our troops and govt in order to score political points.

    Gosh, Bruce, you have the patience of a saint to try to connect with and impact that guy’s reception under the tin foil hat.

    A vertible saint.

    And for the record, Gryph… the WoT won’t be won by the same kind of partisan back-stabbing and undercutting of the public’s resolve… as you and your kind have done for the last 3 years (or longer)… thank God that President Bush is above that kind of nonsense.

    I only wish guys like Gryph were REAL Americans, instead of fair-weather nambies who find fleeting comfort in their unrealistic world of petty partisan vendetta.

    They need to take a cue from NancyP and HarryR –shut up and start working toward a real solution… not just cut & run.

    Comment by Michigan-Matt — November 10, 2006 @ 6:42 pm - November 10, 2006

  16. Lest I remind you folks who seem to think only with the ‘right’ side of your brains. In the last 100 years, the greatest ‘commanders in chief’ have been Democrats; Wilson, FDR, Truman, JFK, LBJ, Clinton (if you count Kosovo) On the other side of the ledger there’s Eisenhower, (at the tail end of Korea) Nixon (impeached) Ford, (lost us Vietnam I guess) (sorry, Grenada doesn’t count) and Bush Sr. Oh yeah, forgot Junior. (and throw in Teddy Roosevelt for good measure)

    Comment by tonto_cal — November 10, 2006 @ 8:16 pm - November 10, 2006

  17. And what are the Democrats plans?

    -Redeploy our troops to the 14 or so bases that we’ve constructed since we’ve been there and let the sectarians fight it out for themselves. (whilst guarding the oil wells of course; it’s not the only place in the world where we’ll be doing it, the civilian populations don’t really matter)

    -Secure the borders to stop arms and personnel from seeping in. (I imagine we’ll be about as successful with that as we have been trying to secure our own for the last 6 years)

    -Re-open diplomatic ties with Iran and Syria (because a stable Iraq is in their interests as well)

    -Commence negotiations with the different factions within the country (which the Bush people are already doing anyways, like negotiatiing amnesty for the insurgents that have already killed our troops)

    Keep in mind fellas, I don’t see Speaker Pelosi dispatching teams of generals and diplomats over to the region anytime soon. It’s not her place or perogative. That’s the President’s job. It’s his mess to clean up. I’m sure Daddy Bush’s people will be more than happy to be the ‘adults in the room’ again.

  18. 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!

    Yes, they were uttered by Al Qaeda, who uttered similar sentiments in the run-up to the 2004 election. If memory serves me, they also thanked our President; due to the ineptitude of his (our) Iraq involvement, their recruiting drives in the region were a smashing success! The numbers were apparently through the roof! (or were blowing off the roof, choose your metaphor)

    Yeah, big thanks President Bush. Good luck with all that by the way.

    Comment by sean — November 10, 2006 @ 8:56 pm - November 10, 2006

  20. And by the way, why is it that you expect Democrats–who just got into the White House for lunch–to come up with a plan in two days when you have given Bush five years and he STILL doesn’t have a plan? What’s with that?

    And if it is true, as you like to claim, that the Democrats do not have a plan, what does that say about the American people’s estimation of Dear Leader’s fumbling around in Iraq?

    The War on Terror, a misnomer if ever there was one, is not the War in Iraq. And this fear mongering no longer works.

    Comment by sean — November 10, 2006 @ 8:59 pm - November 10, 2006

  21. #1: Republicans fight the War on Terror.

    Democrats fight the War on Bush.

    Who’s fighting the war on socialism?

    FACTS, man, FACTS!

    Who is going to dismantle the socialist state, and when? This remains a far more important issue to me than terrorism.

    It’s called propaganda. Just astounding you don’t get that.

    Oh, so you mean they’ve just been talking out of their rears for the past 44 months?

    The Democrats have been complaining since the war began that they had a better plan. At the very least they could dust off the plan John Kerry allegedly had in 2004.

    But “keep Saddam in power” and “cut and run” don’t play well, do they?

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — November 11, 2006 @ 12:52 am - November 11, 2006

  25. NDXXX, actually one major Democrat leader and elder statesman has said what he thinks the Party should propose: the most un-venerable George McGovern, twice failed presidential contender and chief-loon from the radical Left.

    He says that we need to “cut & run” in January… we should not stop to reposition troops in the region to “threaten” peaceful intervention if the Iraqis don’t play nice with each other or Iran and Syria get as deeply involved in Iraq as they NOW are in Lebanon.

    Cut and run. Now. Completely.

    That’s the Democrat Plan.

    Plus, sectionalize Iraq into 3 portions… that way the Iraqis will be able to govern themselves and stop the violence, even though that hasn’t been the case up to now. And what’s this about dividing the oil revenue? What is with the Right in America… everytime the Democrats propose a valid, worthy idea, it all comes down to oil. Oil. Oil. Oil. We need to jack up the price to help the environment and punish white suburbanites for sticking with W.

    But then, George McGovern was the guy who thought we should end poverty by giving every inner city black a $1,000/month for life… and we could end the VN War by giving every North VN citizen $1,000/year for life. Loons from Left unite? Or is that un-tie?

  26. #24. Thank you for showing the lie that is this line of Republicans since the Democrats won: “What’s the plan? They don’t have a plan.”

    Comment by sean — November 12, 2006 @ 11:34 pm - November 12, 2006

  27. LOL…..or, more precisely, the fact that you don’t have a plan, sean.

    You see, all you Democrats know how to do is to oppose or to grovel.

    That’s why we end up with the spectacle of Pelosi and her ilk groveling to governments and groups that, were she in their power, would have her ass in a burka and their soldiers raping it — because they ALSO oppose Republicans.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — November 13, 2006 @ 1:14 pm - November 13, 2006

  28. hey ppl’s i’m from Sydney Australia. It’s very strange how Americans spill into this bipartisanship, back here if you asked someone of their political preference they would most likely get offended or tell you to mind your own business; how can you be proud to support a group of grovelling politicians on either side. Australian troops have only had 1 death accidentally in Iraq which is a relief which cannot be given to you Americans. Society here is less concerned about the war now and it gets much less coverage in the media..is that the case over there? I feel sorry for the families that lose loved ones in a stupid war…who’s freedom are they protecting? yours? mine? Iraqis?…at least now Bush has less influence politically, he has to listen to reason, even if the democrats dont have a plan, they can bring some balance and a new perspective on the issues facing your country….cheers Ricky 🙂

    Comment by Ricky — November 15, 2006 @ 7:22 am - November 15, 2006

  29. This thread may be too cold to note the following, but a reputable poll done here in Michigan by a former Democrat Party activist turned pollster was conducted this past week –post election.

    It found that over 57% of Michiganders (yes, that’s what we are called) are of the opinion the natl Democrats don’t have a “plan” for Iraq.

    Wow and for the record, the voters here didn’t put the Democrats in power in DC; all GOP seats remained firmly GOP.

    Curiously, over 54% thought that twice-elected Geo Bush would be able to work with the Democrats in Congress to move forward on policy matters… I guess he is a uniter, not a divider.
