Report: Al-Qaida No. 2 blames Obama for Gaza fight
Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader lashed out at President-elect Barack Obama in a new audio message Tuesday, accusing him of not doing anything to stop Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip, according to an intelligence monitoring center.
In the comments, which were posted on a militant Web site and obtained by the SITE Monitoring Service, al-Zawahiri described Israel's actions in Gaza as a "crusade against Islam and Muslims" and called it "Obama's gift to Israel" before he takes office later this month.
..."This is Obama whom the American machine of lies tried to portray as the rescuer who will change the policy of America," al-Zawahiri said, according to SITE. "He kills your brothers and sisters in Gaza mercilessly and without affection."
Wait a minute, you mean terrorism and hatred of America DIDN'T start the day Bush took office?! That Al Qaida and others will hate us, and anyone else who thinks Israel has a right to exist, no matter WHO is president? "Hope and change" is such a meaningless slogan that everyone, even Al Qaida, projects their own hopes for change on it? Whoops, looks like the wrong man was just elected . . .
Terrorists cannot be appeased, only destroyed. Let's pray the new president understands that. And it wouldn't be so bad if his liberal followers would start getting it, too, and maybe even cut Bush some slack. Hey, we can all hope for change, can't we?
