One element of our mission in the Mideast is to convince the local populations that the United States supports their religious identity - hearts and minds. When AQ sees this kind of thing they can use it as a tool to convince the people we are trying to sway that in fact the US is waging a war on Islam and not on terrorists - after all, we've got a biblical passage printed right on our weapons. We are fighting people that will blow themselves and others to smithereens over a cartoon - what does a Bible verse on a rifle say? This is a perfect recruiting tool for AQ.
