Obama Ordered Attack on Gaza: Who Knew?

While the American public thinks President-Elect Barack Obama is letting Bush run the country until the inauguration, Al Qaeda's own Ayman al-Zawahiri has revealed startling news:

Obama's War: The Crusade War Against Islam in Gaza

There's an audio message, posted on Islamist websites:

"The speaker, identified as Ayman al-Zawahiri, addresses Muslims in Gaza. He said the violence 'is one part of a series of a crusade war against Islam and these air strikes are a gift from Obama before he takes office, and (Egyptian President) Hosni Mubarak, that traitor, is the main partner in your siege and killing.' " (CNN)

I'm not sure how this will fly, among American Muslims, and Americans in general. Ayman al-Zawahiri may be a little tone-deaf when it comes to understanding the nuances of American culture. Of course, it's possible that he doesn't care what Americans - Muslim or otherwise - think, and intended his earlier "house slave" remark for another audience.

According to the article I read, this message is intended for Muslims in Gaza. I suppose al-Zawahiri has decided that it's time to stop blaming Bush, and get an early start on blaming Obama - and "traitors" like Egypt's Mubarak - for anything that can't be blamed on the Jews.

It'll be interesting to see how blaming Obama will fly in America.

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.
