Al Qaeda Leader Calls President-Elect Obama "House Negro"

And that's the polite translation. The phrase might be more accurately translated as "house slave."

And, said that Obama would continue the war against Islam started by Bush, and that Barack Obama has a heart full of hate.

So: Barack Obama is a tool of George W. Bush?!

And a house slave??!

I don't know how the Islamic world will take al-Zawahri's latest words of wisdom, but here in America I think they'll go over about as well as "Obama Half-Breed Muslin" did during the recent election.

Here's how The New York Times started its article about Ayman al-Zawahri's latest audio release:

"In a propaganda salvo by Al Qaeda aimed at undercutting the enthusiasm of Muslims worldwide about the American election, Osama bin Laden's top deputy condemned President-elect Barack Obama as a 'house Negro' who would continue a campaign against Islam that Al Qaeda’s leaders said was begun by President Bush.

"Appealing to the “weak and oppressed” around the world, the Qaeda deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, said in a video released Wednesday that the 'new face' of America only masked a 'heart full of hate.'..."

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
