Al Qaeda's Missionary Video
Well, it looks like Al Qaeda has finally seen the folly of releasing propaganda videos aimed at America filled with raging bearded hate mongers spewing forth vitriol which is intended to make the viewers blood run cold. Their folly? They rant, scream, and otherwise spew their venom in Arabic - a language spoken by few Americans and understood by fewer.
Well, someone finally got that point across to Al Qaeda's PR firm. Now they have their very own 21st Century version of Lord Haw Haw personified by Adam Gadahn AKA Azzam The American.
If you're wondering who Lord Haw Haw was, Captain Ed has a good primer on that subject.
Adam and Al Qaeda's #2, Ayman al-Zawahri, appeared in what can only be billed as a Missionary Video for Al Qaeda's Short and Simple Plan for Global Islamic Conversion. Their well thought out marketing plan is extremely simple: Convert or Die. Should you doubt me, I quote directly from Adam:
It is time for the unbelievers to discard these incoherent and illogical beliefs. Isn't it the time for the Christians, Jews, Buddhists and atheists to cast off the cloak of the spiritual darkness which enshrouds them and emerge into the light of Islam?Short translation: Convert to our version of Islam or prepare to have your head forcibly separated from your body with a dull rusty knife in a fashion similar to Danny Pearl.
[Christianity is a] hollow shell of a religion, whose followers cling to an empty faith and a false conviction in their own salvation. It is time for the unbelievers to discard these incoherent and illogical beliefs.
To Americans and the rest of Christendom we say, either repent (your) misguided ways and enter into the light of truth or keep your poison to yourself and suffer the consequences in this world and the next.
Anyone want to tell me how these guys figure into the whole Relgion of Peace thing?
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Council on American-Islamic Relations has no response to this video even though its been out for three days now. CAIR is probably too busy protesting over alleged racial/ethnic profiling.
Memo to Adam: You're a punk. Even the Star Trek Klingons in the Original Series had better glued on beards than you - and they looked fiercer than you ever will. Your side show quality video is good for little more than comic relief. Al Qaeda uses you because you speak my language - that's all the use they have for you.
But seriously, if you'd like to discuss religion, I'm open to a face to face debate with you any day of the week. Are you up to the challenge, Punk? If so, please contact my good friends at The US Central Command. They'll be sure to set up a meeting for you.
Here endeth the lesson.
