Zawahiri Considers Obama Election a Victory For Al Qaeda, Warns Obama
November 19 2008 | jveritas

Posted on 11/19/2008 6:17:39 AM PST by jveritas

Ayman Al Zawahiri the second in command of Al Qaeda released an audio tape today stating that the election of Obama is a defeat for the United States and a victory for Al Qaeda. He said that the American people admitted defeat in Iraq and therefore they elected Obama because they rejected President Bush policies in Iraq.

He also warned Obama not to send more troops in Afghanistan and told him to leave that country.

Below is the full translation of terrorist Zawahiri speech as posted on one terrorist forum:

Translation:

In the Name of Allah, and all Praise is due to Allah, and Prayers and Peace on the Messenger of Allah and on his family, Companions and allies. Muslim brothers everywhere: Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His blessings. As for what comes after:

Barack Obama has won the presidency of the United States of America, and on this occasion, I would like to send several messages.

First, a message of congratulations to the Muslim Ummah on the American people’s admission of defeat in Iraq. Although the evidence of America’s defeat in Iraq appeared years ago, Bush and his administration continued to be stubborn and deny the brilliant midday sun. If Bush has achieved anything, it is in his transfer of America’s disaster and predicament to his successor. But the American people, by electing Obama, declared its anxiety and apprehension about the future towards which the policy of the likes of Bush is leading it, and so it decided to support someone calling for withdrawal from Iraq.

The second of these messages is to the new president of the United States. I tell him: you have reached the position of president, and a heavy legacy of failure and crimes awaits you. A failure in Iraq to which you have admitted, and a failure in Afghanistan to which the commanders of your army have admitted. The other thing to which I want to bring your attention is that what you’ve announced about how you’re going to reach an understanding with Iran and pull your troops out of Iraq to send them to Afghanistan is a policy which was destined for failure before it was born. It appears that you don’t know anything about the Muslim Ummah and its history, and the fate of the traitors who cooperated with the invaders against it, and don’t know anything about the history of Afghanistan and its free and defiant Muslim people. And if you still want to be stubborn about America’s failure in Afghanistan, then remember the fate of Bush and Pervez Musharraf, and the fate of the Soviets and British before them. And be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them.

As for the crimes of America which await you, it appears that you continue to be captive to the same criminal American mentality towards the world and towards the Muslims. The Muslim Ummah received with extreme bitterness your hypocritical statements to and stances towards Israel, which confirmed to the Ummah that you have chosen a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims.

You represent the direct opposite of honorable black Americans like Malik al-Shabazz, or Malcolm X (may Allah have mercy on him). You were born to a Muslim father, but you chose to stand in the ranks of the enemies of the Muslims, and pray the prayer of the Jews, although you claim to be Christian, in order to climb the rungs of leadership in America. And so you promised to back Israel, and you threatened to strike the tribal regions in Pakistan, and to send thousands more troops to Afghanistan, in order for the crimes of the American Crusade in it to continue. And last Monday, your aircraft killed 40 Afghan Muslims at a wedding party in Kandahar. As for Malik al-Shabazz (may Allah have mercy on him), he was born to a black pastor killed by white bigots, but Allah favored him with guidance to Islam, and so he prided himself on his fraternity with the Muslims, and he condemned the crimes of the Crusader West against the weak and oppressed, and he declared his support for peoples resisting American occupation, and he spoke about the worldwide revolution against the Western power structure.

That’s why it wasn’t strange that Malik al-Shabazz (may Allah have mercy on him) was killed, while you have climbed the rungs of the presidency to take over the leadership of the greatest criminal force in the history of mankind and the leadership of the most violent Crusade ever against the Muslims. And in you and in Colin Powell, Rice and your likes, the words of Malcolm X (may Allah have mercy on him) concerning “House Negroes” are confirmed.

You also must appreciate, as you take over the presidency of America during its Crusade against Islam and Muslims, that you are neither facing individuals nor organizations, but are facing a Jihadi awakening and renaissance which is shaking the pillars of the entire Islamic world; and this is the fact which you and your government and country refuse to recognize and pretend not to see.

As for the third message, it is to the Muslim Ummah. I tell it: America, the criminal, trespassing Crusader, continues to be the same as ever, so we must continue to harm it, in order for it to come to its senses, because its criminal, expansionist Crusader project in your lands has only been neutralized by the sacrifices of your sons, the Mujahideen. This, then, is the path, so stick to it.

As for the fourth message, it is to the lions of Islam, the Mujahideen. I tell them: may Allah reward you in the best way for your historic heroics, which have ruined America’s plans and rendered its projects ineffective. So be firm and resolute. Your enemy’s stagger has begun, so don’t stop hitting him.

And I say to my brothers the Mujahideen in Iraq in general and the Islamic State of Iraq in particular, and to its Amir, the towering mountain Abu ‘Umar al-Baghdadi: your enemy has admitted defeat, and the forthcoming stage is expected to be dominated by conspiracies and betrayals in order to cover the American withdrawal, so you must persevere, for victory is in an hour of perseverance.

And I tell my brothers, the lions of Islam in Somalia: rejoice in victory and conquest. America is gathering its wounds in Iraq, and Ethiopia is looking for a way out, and for this reason, the stage of conspiracies and machinations has begun. So hold tightly to the truth for which you have given your lives, and don’t put down your weapons before the Mujahid state of Islam and Tawheed has been set up in Somalia. And I tell all Mujahideen everywhere: the Hubal of the age has begun to falter and recede, and Allah has granted you success and honored you by making you the most important cause of that, so be resolute on the path of Jihad until you meet your Lord while He is pleased with you.

And my fifth message is to all the world’s weak and oppressed. I tell them: America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always. And the Mujahideen of Islam, by the grace of Allah, continue to be the spearhead of the resistance against it to restrain it from injustice, aggression and arrogance. As for my final message, it is to the American people. I tell it: you incurred defeat and losses from the foolish actions of Bush and his gang, and at the same time, Shaykh Usama bin Ladin (may Allah preserve him) sent you a message to withdraw from the lands of the Muslims and refrain from stealing their treasures and interfering in their affairs. So choose for yourself whatever you like, and bear the consequences of your choice, and as you judge, you will be judged.

And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and may Allah send prayers and peace on our Master Muhammad and his family and Companions.

Well, for the first time ever I agree with a terrorist. This election was a victory for Al Queda. They were reduced to ineffectiveness due to our current President’s strategy. They have not participated in any major attacks like 9/11 and the London and Spain bombings for quite some time, and they have gotten decimated in Iraq. Now, they can rebuild.

Calling Obama a “house negro” might be enough to get Democrats to actually support the War on Terror.

He did call him that. However the media do not want to report what Zawahiri said in the very first statement that the elections of Obama is a victory for Al Qaeda and a defeat for America.

***This election was a victory for Al Queda. ***

Maybe not. By publicly declaring it a victory it makes it more difficult for Obama to move in the direction Kos, MoveOn, and Code Pink want him to. It will appear too clearly that he is acceding to the will of al Queda. That is something, even the MSM will not be able to paper over. This IMHO will restrict Obama's actions as POTUS in a positive way.

One thing we have to keep in mind is that these people have no concept of “term limits” - once someone is in power, they stay there until dead or deposed.

They would consider Bush leaving office as being a victory for them, no matter if it was McCain that replaced him.

Yes, Buttock will be softer on the terrorists, as he will be softer on all rogue dictators that mean America harm, but I wouldn’t read a whole lot into this statement.

I wonder why this Zawahiri doesn’t suggest to others that they accept Islam???

Not that I would accept it, but it seems odd to me that he doesn’t offer it or even explain it. Such an omission makes me wonder if he really believes it.

I suspect he is in this for power over others.

Not saying a word.

That’s why it wasn’t strange that Malik al-Shabazz (may Allah have mercy on him) was killed,

With the knowledge and full approval of Obama's neighbor Louis Farrakhan. No serious person disputes that Malcolm X was murdered by Elijah Muhammad.

And if Zawahiri is found to have contributed cash to Proposition 8, they might really go after him.

He's Al Qaeda’s # 2, which is saying a lot because the whole organization is #2 if you get my meaning.

This just in, we lost Iraq, sort of like losing a prize fight by breaking your hand on the other guys’ face.

If Obama is smart, which lets face it is a faint hope, he'll IMMEDIATELY announce that we have won in Iraq, which is why we are withdrawing SLOWLY and the same fate awaits the Taliban. He should add that we have CRUSHED Al Qaeda in Iraq and will soon do the same in Afghanistan.

I'm ah, not holding my breath.

Agreed. We’ll soon miss the old days when being Al Qaeda #2 was the shortest career future around. Under Obama he’ll be able to make retirement plans that don’t involve being a skid mark on history within a few weeks or days courtesy of the USA.

Thank you very much :) I am just your humble freeper and all what I did was monitoring the terrorist forums where I got the full translation of Zawahiri speech.

Of course the liberal media will not report anything embarrassing for Obama such as the first statement of terrorist Zawahiri in his latest speech.

I say if Obama wants to improve his standing in my eyes, he’ll push the button and nuke the afghan/paki border. Everyone there is either a terrorist or is helping hide them. Let’s see Al Qaida make audio tapes after their body parts are strewn all over the middle east.

Not necessarily. They may do it sometimes but in most cases they are just speeches. I doubt that they activate their terrorist cells via speeches. They have other communications methods to do it.
