Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Zombie of Zombietime, the indefatigable photoblogger of the Bay Area on the Left Coast, documented how the lefty loons of San Francisco celebrated the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. I filched these photos to tease you to go to Zombie's site, where so much more awaits you.

In a weird way this is so true. The protestors are in fact tacit allies of the jihadis, ignoring their atrocities while always condemning America, making them the political arm of the the Baathists and jihadis in Iraq.

An Obama supporter who favors his pastor's sentiments toward the USA, and the sentiments of the loony left.

Zombie makes the point that anti-war rallies are organized and populated by no-kidding Communists, believe it or not. Zombie's experience in San Francisco is the same as the protest experience I've witnessed in Washington, DC. Maybe you thought commies went extinct and you'd be wrong. There are still knuckleheads who believe this crazy commie crap and want to give it another try. If you think they're crazy, you'd be right. The demonstrations are part of their attempt to batter America as a preliminary for their revolution. It's nuts of course, but there it is.

Truthers infest all anti-war demonstrations because paranoid conspiracy nuts cling together like dirty little dust bunnies.

Fortunately, there were counter-protestors to inject sanity into the situation. In a demonstration of how much they value free speech, the moonbats drove the counter-protestors away. The thing protestors hate most is being protested. They brook no dissent.

Don't miss Zombie's Hall of Shame, the worst of the worst protest images ever. Would you want to stand with these people?

Dead Terrorists Walking

It was another bad day in the jihad for this terror cell when they found themselves caught on the open street by those pesky infidels in the sky with their giant guns. Maybe they thought the day was going pretty well until then, right up until the lead rain began. You can watch the video of their sudden demise here and read the BlackFive post promising more dead tango dancing here. Apparently, the gentlemen, scholars, and patriots at BlackFive are assembling a compendium of gun film featuring the jihadis, kinduva jihadi blooper reel.

Great Moments In History That Never Happenned

And never should happen.

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Dr Mamoun Fandy

Dr. Mamoun Fandy, a long-time writer in Middle Eastern media, analyzes the Arab media in his new book, "(Un)Civil War of Words: Media and Politics in the Arab World," reviewed by MEMRI
"[Dr. Fandy] points out that anti-American rhetoric is almost universal in Arab news coverage – not only in countries like Syria, which are openly hostile to the U.S., but also in countries allied with it, such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia. There are several reasons for this, he says: One is that antagonism towards the U.S. is shared by nearly all sectors of Arab society. The nationalists resent the U.S. for undermining Saddam Hussein's Ba'th regime; the Islamists hate it for promoting Western values and for fighting the Taliban and bin Laden; and the ruling elites in the Arab countries resent it for pushing reform and democratization, which threaten their power. Since anti-American is common to all these rival forces, it is not surprising that it percolates into society at large.

"In addition, the Arab regimes use anti-American rhetoric to deflect the blame for their own failures. In other words, they blame "colonialism" or the "imperialist West" for the problems of Arab society, as a way to avoid taking responsibility for them.

"Finally, Fandy points out that the journalists themselves tend to favor reports critical of the U.S., since they are easy to write and are also sure to pass regime censorship – unlike criticism of the regime. In other words, criticizing the U.S. is always a safe and easy option for Arab journalists.

"Fandy concludes that, given all this, anti-Americanism should not be expected to vanish from the Arab media any time soon.

In other words, Arab media is driven by its prejudices. In a 2004 article in the Washington Post, Dr. Fandy gave an example of the form anti-Americanism takes in the Arab media:
"In a search for answers about the Arab media's approach, I went directly to Abdul Rahman Rashed, the head of al-Arabiya, and asked him why most Arab commentators remain silent about these horrific acts of violence and why his channel and al-Jazeera give so much airtime to the terrorists.

"Rashed blames both contemporary Arab culture and the culture of Arab newsrooms. He offered two examples -- one from print and the other from TV -- to make his point. He told me that last year, when he was still chief editor of the pan-Arab daily newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat (for which I am a columnist), he caught one of his editors changing the caption of an AP photo from "an American soldier chatting with an Iraqi girl" to "an American soldier asking an Iraqi girl for sex." "If I had not caught him, it would have gone to print this way," he said."

Kathy Callahan Learns Her Lesson

Kathy Callahan contributed two grand to the Hillary campaign on her Visa card, but was shocked when Hillary sucked her credit card dry, taking another three grand in unauthorized charges. That's what we judgemental types call stealing. You know, kind of like stealing $100,000 in a cattle futures scam. The Hillary campaign also charged her for an event she never attended and not just once but twice. That pushed the theft to $5800. To add insult to injury, Hillary's theft led to a series of overdrafts which cost Kathy another four hundred bucks in bank fees. Was She Pissed. And she wasn't alone:

"Matt McQuenney who works in the compliance department at HRC headquarters told me verbatim -"What happened to you with credit card errors is happening to others,. You are not alone. Kathy, I'm trying hard to find out where and who it's coming from. What's going on!""
Additional research unearthed a long list of donors who had been charged up to nine grand which had been subsequently refunded. It was obviously not an anomaly, but a policy.

Kathy begged and pleaded for a month with the Hillary campaign to get her money back to no avail. The Hillary people made no apology for the theft. Instead, they tried to bullshit her:
"Kathy Callahan, you are going to be with us all the way to the White House...So let's leave the money where it is and we'll save time on inevitable future donations and transactions!"
In other words, Hillary is not looting your credit card but merely taking the donations in advance that she is sure you'll make later. So, what's so wrong about that? Aside from the theft, the $5,800 the Hillary campaign stole was $1,200 over the legal limit for donations. But then, what are a few broken laws to Hillary? Why should laws apply to Hillary at all?

Kathy Callahan got no justice from the Hillary campaign until she filed a police report and emailed the Hillary campaign about it. She received a phone call and email immediately from Allison Wright, compliance officer at the Hillary headquarters in Virginia: "Kathy, please don't do anything, formally! I will send you whatever you want back, immediately!" And that's how Kathy got back $5300. She was still stuck for the $400 in overdraft charges.

It's a little peek into the future of what the administration of President Hillary would be like, where the government believes it has first claim on your money and thinks you should be glad to give it up to support them.

A Suspected Faith Hate Crime

Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, an Anglican priest, went outside his church, St George-in-the-East Church in Tower Hamlets in eastern London, around 7 PM on March 5th to ask some "Asian youths" to quiet down. "Asian youths" is the British euphemism for Southwest Asian Muslims. A large Bangladeshi Muslim immigrant commmunity has settled around the 18th century church.

Seeing his clerical collar, the Muslim gangsters beat the hell out of him, shouting, "FUCKING PRIEST!" Two of them punched and kicked the vicar, inflicting cuts and bruises upon him and two black eyes.

There was blood everywhere,” said a parishioner. “All the church members are in shock over what happened. Our canon is such a nice man who has done so much for the parish. It’s been very upsetting.”

Canon Ainsworth was treated at the hospital and released but needed to be readmitted a week later because of his nose injuries. He remains in the hospital.

The local Muslim kids have made a habit of smashing the windows of St George-in-the-East Church, shouting, "This should not be a church, this should be a mosque." They've also taken to vandalizing the gravestones in nearby St Dunstan's Church in Stepney. When National Churchwatch surveyed London clergy, almost half said they had been attacked within the last year. National Churchwatch recommends as a security precaution that vicars should not wear their collars in public.
The vicar's wife, Janina Ainsworth, also an Anglican priest, has taken over services for her husband. She brushes aside any suggestion of religious bigotry:

"Quite clearly there are mindless individuals in every community, quite often under the influence of drink or drugs, that engage in random acts of violence. The community organisations here are very shocked. ... We have had very strong messages of support from East London mosque and Tower Hamlets mosque."
Mrs. Ainsworth insists that interfaith relationships with Muslims are good. If you set aside her husband's beating, the regular vandalism to her church by Muslims shouting their bigotry, and their defilement of Christian graves, I suppose you can see her point.

Scotland Yard, unfortunately, is not so enlightened as Mrs. Ainsworth. They're treating the attack as a suspected faith hate crime. I suspect they're right.

Commander Zare'i

Michael Rubin, resident scholar in foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute and editor of the Middle East Quarterly, reports on the troubles of Commander Zare'i via PowerLine:

A week after ousting of Commander Zare'i, Greater Tehran chief of Law Enforcement Forces, the news agency of the Amir Kabir Polytechnical University of Tehran (AUT News) reports that Zare'i was arrested at a "House of Corruption," the Islamic Republic's equivalent of a gentleman's club, along with six ladies. The six ladies say upon raiding the place, Commander Zare'i had asked them to perform a group prayer naked, which explains their state undress at the time of arrest. Commander Zare'i was the supreme enforcer of the "societal security scheme" planned under the Khatami presidency and enforced under Ahmadinejad, aimed at eliminating "moral corruption" and "deviation from the path of salvation" in the Iranian society. Commander Zare'i has dealt harshly with what he calls Arazel va Owbash [Hooligan elements] and in an early interview he told the Iranian press: "35,000 people have been warned by the Law Enforcement Forces, 1,000 people have been summoned to police stations, and 124 people have been delivered to the Judiciary." AUT News also claims the arrest of Zare'i took place upon direct orders from Shahroudi, head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Judiciary, who feared the close friendship between the head of police and Tehran judge Sa'id Mortazavi would lead to freeing of Zare'i. According to AUT News, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has ordered the legal proceedings against Zare'i to take place after the parliamentary elections.
Good luck with the naked prayer defense, Commander Zare'i! I'm sure it's in the Koran somewhere. You might study up on Bill Clinton's maneuvers and blame it all on an overzealous prosecutor.

David Mamet Comes In From The Cold

David Mamet, famous American author, essayist, playwright, screenwriter, and film director tells of his jump from Left to Right in his Village Voice article, "Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain-Dead Liberal'." Says Mamet:

"I took the liberal view for many decades, but I believe I have changed my mind.

"As a child of the '60s, I accepted as an article of faith that government is corrupt, that business is exploitative, and that people are generally good at heart.

"These cherished precepts had, over the years, become ingrained as increasingly impracticable prejudices. Why do I say impracticable? Because although I still held these beliefs, I no longer applied them in my life. How do I know? My wife informed me. We were riding along and listening to NPR. I felt my facial muscles tightening, and the words beginning to form in my mind: Shut the fuck up. "?" she prompted. And her terse, elegant summation, as always, awakened me to a deeper truth: I had been listening to NPR and reading various organs of national opinion for years, wonder and rage contending for pride of place. Further: I found I had been—rather charmingly, I thought—referring to myself for years as "a brain-dead liberal," and to NPR as "National Palestinian Radio."

"This is, to me, the synthesis of this worldview with which I now found myself disenchanted: that everything is always wrong.

"But in my life, a brief review revealed, everything was not always wrong, and neither was nor is always wrong in the community in which I live, or in my country. Further, it was not always wrong in previous communities in which I lived, and among the various and mobile classes of which I was at various times a part.

"And, I wondered, how could I have spent decades thinking that I thought everything was always wrong at the same time that I thought I thought that people were basically good at heart? Which was it? I began to question what I actually thought and found that I do not think that people are basically good at heart; indeed, that view of human nature has both prompted and informed my writing for the last 40 years. I think that people, in circumstances of stress, can behave like swine, and that this, indeed, is not only a fit subject, but the only subject, of drama.

"I'd observed that lust, greed, envy, sloth, and their pals are giving the world a good run for its money, but that nonetheless, people in general seem to get from day to day; and that we in the United States get from day to day under rather wonderful and privileged circumstances—that we are not and never have been the villains that some of the world and some of our citizens make us out to be, but that we are a confection of normal (greedy, lustful, duplicitous, corrupt, inspired—in short, human) individuals living under a spectacularly effective compact called the Constitution, and lucky to get it."

It's worth reading the whole article. Mamet's still suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome but he's smart enough to work his way out of that, too. Welcome home, David Mamet. What took you so long?

Gathering of Eagles at Times Square

The Gathering of Eagles (GOE) called for patriotic citizens to show support for the military recruiting center in Times Square, New York, which was bombed Thursday in an act of domestic terrorism, apparently perpetrated by protestors who want the insurgents to win in Iraq. The GOE demonstrated Saturday in Times Square from noon to four PM to support the military recruiters under threat of violence there.

Chris Hill, GOE National Director of Operations, says of the military recruiters in Times Square:

"It is important for them to know we love and respect them, and will stand with them always. New York City has, once again, been the victim of terrorism; this time of the homegrown brand it appears. This despicable act can be laid right at the feet of the vehement anti-American groups we have countered so often. They have made it okay in the minds of some to attack recruiter stations and deface our war memorials. We must not allow this to continue! I have contacted law enforcement agencies in several of the cities where recruiter stations have been previously targeted. They assure me that security has been stepped up. Respectfully, that is not enough. We must show support publicly and proudly for our brothers and sisters in uniform. This is our line in the sand. This nonsense will stop. I look forward to standing with you all again and appreciate your unqualified support. I love New York."

Conservative Propaganda dispatched Celtic Chick, our most able correspondent in the Big Apple, to cover the action, which was especially soggy, and take these photos. Her first reports were that the weather was "TOTALLY LOUSY... It has been raining cats and dogs all day, chilly and windy."

However, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these patriots from the swift support of their local military recruiting center when it has been bombed by idiots. Celtic Chick says the damage had been completely repaired and was unnoticeable by the time she arrived. Outstanding.

Terrorism will not be tolerated, at least not by the troop supporters. For the feral anti-victory Left, it's another story.

Celtic Chick delivered a plate of chocolate chip cookies to the recruiters on duty. I was gonna talk to her about maintaining journalistic objectivity but then I remembered we don't have any. This is Conservative Propaganda. We're for the US military and for winning in Iraq and beating the insurgents to a bloody pulp. In the time-honored tradition of the US military, the recruiters on duty thanked the Celtic Chick for the cookies and then fell upon them like ravenous wolves, chowing down like they hadn't eaten all week.

Plenty of passing cars honked in appreciation of the GOE flag-wavers taking back Times Square for America. Nobody likes IEDs being laid at the door of the military recruiting center nor the people who place them there. On that, we are all agreed. New York, appropriately enough, is against terror. What did this idiot bomber think he would accomplish by perpetrating a terrorist act in New York? Did he think after Sep 11 that New York would just roll over and give in to his tiny terror? Who does this weenie bomber think New Yorkers are?

Gloria Steinem On Character

Tired old feminist Gloria Steinem, 73, went on the attack for Hillary, as reported in this article from the New York Observer:

Steinem raised McCain’s Vietnam imprisonment as she sought to highlight an alleged gender-based media bias against Clinton.

“Suppose John McCain had been Joan McCain and Joan McCain had got captured, shot down and been a POW for eight years. [The media would ask], ‘What did you do wrong to get captured? What terrible things did you do while you were there as a captive for eight years?’” Steinem said, to laughter from the audience.

McCain was, in fact, a prisoner of war for around five and a half years, during which time he was tortured repeatedly. Referring to his time in captivity, Steinem said with bewilderment, “I mean, hello? This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don’t think so.”

Steinem’s broader argument was that the media and the political world are too admiring of militarism in all its guises.

“I am so grateful that she [Clinton] hasn’t been trained to kill anybody. And she probably didn’t even play war games as a kid. It’s a great relief from Bush in his jump suit and from Kerry saluting.”

To The Observer, Steinem insisted that “from George Washington to Jack Kennedy and PT-109 we have behaved as if killing people is a qualification for ruling people.”
Maybe John McCain could have won Steinem's respect if only, while the commie fiends were putting him in the rope torture in the Hanoi Hilton and hanging him from the ceiling overnight time after time, he had burned his bra.

Jackson Kirk Grimes For President

Like a fool I thought there was only two real candidates for president, the ones fielded by the Republican and Democratic parties. I have since been disabused of that naive notion by the current leading authority on American political movements, Noot, who also happens to be my high school pal. There are, in fact, nearly three hundred people in the race for President. They are all listed at the Project Vote Smart website. Most of these people have filed a statement of candidacy or at least told the Federal Election Commission that they have formed a campaign committee. Some have only expressed an interest in being President.

This site tells me a lot of scary information. For example, John McCain's middle name is Sidney. Now, I'm for McCain but this Sidney business gives me pause. McCain and his foxy wife Cindy have a total of seven kids together. It makes me wonder if this whole campaign for President is just an excuse for him to get away from the house.

There are dozens of Republicans and Democrats running. For example, Yaphet Kotto is running as a Republican. I loved him as Mr. Big in "Live and Let Die." Abdul (Kareem) Muhammad is a Muslim out of Long Beach, CA running on Republican ticket. Ain't gonna happen, buddy.

It's odd that Hillary Rodham Clinton lists her maiden name, like it might dilute that Clinton name. The Emperor Caesar is also running as a Democrat, but he's way too easy to confuse with Hillary. That's gonna hurt him. Name confusion is going to hurt Robert Anthony "Ram Rod" Gibson. Ram Rod. Rodham. Let's call the whole thing off. However, Heather Fox is running as a Democrat with a name that just sounds like she's hot but she doesn't post a headshot so she's not getting my vote.

Andy Clown Miannay is running as an Independent. No thanks, Andy, we've already suffered through a clown for president in the '90s. No more, I say. No. More.

Susan Gail Ducey is a registered nurse with a husband and two kids in Sedgwick County, Kansas. She has an associates degree in nursing from Highline Community College, 1989, and volunteers as a nurse in the local hospital but wouldn't mind being president. Republican. She sounds nice enough and being President would probably solve her daycare problems. On the other hand, I resolutely oppose the candidacy of Philipp A. Kok, Republican, because he has a name that lends itself too easily to phone pranks. I don't want to see the headlines that would come of such a presidency.

Jesus Bilal Islam Allah 'Alfred Lawrence Patterson' Muhammed professes the religion of "Almighty God - Almighty God is Everything That Exist" and boasts a grade point average of 2.8 from the year he spent at Wayne County Community College. That's better than Teddy Kennedy's first year at college. He's worked as an assistant janitor and security guard. We've had plenty of lawyer presidents, too many, but never a janitor. It may be time.

By contrast, I have no love for Vermin Love 'Sparky' Supreme who's running as a Republican. He's an "activist," naturally, who works in construction and as street theater performer. He professes the "Old Time" religion, which might be a brand of beer. He's run for mayor of Baltimore, where I think he probably couldn't do much more harm to the city than the present crew.

John Joseph "JJ" Kennedy is a 54-year-old unmarried Democrat, who pulled down a 3.7 GPA during his first and only year of college. From there, he was a male fashion model for Kim Dawson Modeling and JoAnn Fullerton Models. Since then he's been protesting the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) and the government's weather manipulation. He doesn't like nuclear testing, either, and wants the war in Iraq stopped. He sounds dumb enough to be a Kennedy. I'm suspicious of a male model who can't find a wife. That should be his first priority, though we may have to wait for gay civil unions to be legal.

Gene Amondson is running for the Prohibition Party. Dude, your time has come and gone. Jacques Yves Boulerice of the Native American Party sounds way too French to be our President. James Louis Dezort Watchman, Independent Party, has a name that sounds too much like a convicted serial killer. Robert Coleman Jorgenson who lists his party as "Other" is out because I'll never vote for a president too lazy to even make up a name for a fake party. For Pete's sake, couldn't you come up with something, anything, like the "Mom, Flag, & Apple Pie" Party? Who could be against that?

God Johan Josephe Lally also hails from the "Other" party. He's a dairy farmer and Vegetarian Benedictine priest married to Virgin Mary John Lally Burtz and practices the Catholic Teutonic religion. He claims to be self-educated. I can't help but think that giving him the reins of power would be opening a real can of worms here.

Bradley K. Lord-Leutwyler of the "None" party has a law degree. He claims to be a visiting lecturer at the University of Las Vegas and teaches college test prep for Kaplan. He's out. We had a whole revolution to kick out British overlords with names like Lord-Leutwyler and we're not letting them crawl back in now.

There are scads of Green Party and Libertarians including Cynthia Ann McKinney from the Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party. However, Noot and my eyes are drawn to Jackson Kirk Grimes from the United Fascist Union who lists his religion as Pagan and boasts of being a Storm Trooper in the Facist Freedom Front from 1967-1975. Hmmm, impressive. Ya kinda think that this candidacy is the result of a bet in some biker bar, but you never know. I'm not too crazy about his membership in the Impeach Bush Movement but then he's a member of the Screen Actor's Guild, so he probably has to do that stuff to get jobs.

Grimes wants to abolish Christianity and substitute classical Roman Paganism combined with Fascism as practiced by Mussolini in Italy. His platform is to abolish paper money, establish a "Universal Price Index" that freezes and then reduces commodity prices, and then create a "Confederacy of States" as a step toward a global government based on Corporate Statism. He's laid it all out on The Jerry Springer Show so he's legit.

However, the most persuasive argument for Grimes is his claim to have played Adolph Hitler in an episode of Star Trek. Unfortunately, his name doesn't seem to come up in the Internet Movie Database, but if he can prove this, he might just have my vote. It's not so much that I'm for anything that he proposes but rather that he's so freaky deaky out there that I'm crazy curious just to see what would happen if he was president.

Another keen observer of the political scene, Mike, by coincidence another high school pal, is considering running for President on the "Cold Beer Party" ticket: "We're adamantly opposed to stores that sell cold beer at lukewarm temperatures and believe the proprietors should have their heads shaved, they should be stripped naked, their butts paint blue, and then kicked out into traffic."

It's got a certain populist appeal and who wouldn't vote for Cold Beer?

Don't Feel Like Chasing No Squirrels No More

Romain Pizzi, wildlife medicine specialist with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons says many pets are getting more depressed and require treatment. Parrots suffer the worst:

"Typically if people go out to work all day their parrot will get very bored and frustrated and eventually develop depression. Symptoms often include plucking out their feathers or self-harming, which is obviously very dangerous. When cockatoos in particular are depressed they can start to self-mutilate and peck their own legs to the bone."
When your cockatoo can't do the voodoo he used to do, he must be treated immediately:

“Firstly, we will change the environment of the animal and make sure it has more stimulation and toys. When we have ruled out underlying medical problems, we try to break the cycle by using Prozac… (which) is given to the parrots in liquid form. It doesn't cure all animals, but around two-thirds respond to the treatment. In a small number of cases things will go well until we wean them off Prozac and the problems return."

The plague of depression isn't just for the birds, but extends to canines as well. Eli Lilly has released a chewable anti-depressant for dogs called "Reconcile," beef flavored, in the US for dogs who lost their interest in fetching. And that tennis ball, hey, you go chase it.

Jihadis to Hillary: Please Pick Up The Phone!

"It's 3 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep, but there's a phone in the White House, and it's ringing. Your vote will decide who answers that call. Who do you want answering the phone?"

Hillary Clinton's ad claims she is the best one to answer that phone when the next crisis comes. Barack Obama's counterpunching ad claims he would be the better one to answer that phone since he opposed the war in Iraq from the beginning. Of course, Republicans would claim that McCain would be the best man of all to answer the phone since he's the one who has been most severely tested under fire. However, nobody's asking the terrorists who they'd most like to be answering the phone when they make it ring. Turns out, terrorists hope Democrats answer the phone, especially Hillary.

Aaron Klein grew up as an Orthodox Jew in Philadelphia who found that jihadists in London were receptive to interviews with him, a student in Yeshiva University in New York City, and remarkably talkative. Intrigued by the experience, he became a journalist in Jerusalem, where he found Middle Eastern terrorists just as verbose and often bluntly honest about their goals. Klein wrote it all down in "Schmoozing With Terrorists: From Hollyood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans - to a Jew!"

Klein was surprised to find that Islamic terrorists in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank live in nicely appointed apartments with state of the art communications gear and they pay close attention to American politics. The terrorists are very much encouraged by the Democrats' talk of pulling out of Iraq. Muhammad Saadi, a senior leader of Islamic Jihad, told Klein,

"As Arabs and Muslims we feel proud of this talk. Very proud from the great successes of the Iraqi resistance. This success that brought the big superpower of the world to discuss a possible withdrawal."

Saadi laughed at Klein's question whether a unilateral withdrawal from Iraq would end worldwide terrorism:

"There is no chance that the resistance will stop."
Abu Ayman, an Islamic Jihad leader in Jenin, loves the American liberals who compare Iraq to Vietnam:
"[The mujahedeen fighters] brought the Americans to speak for the first time seriously and sincerely that Iraq is becoming a new Vietnam and that they should fix a schedule for their withdrawal from Iraq."

The terrorists are fully on board the Democrat defeatist program for Iraq. Abu Jihad, a leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror organization, was thrilled with the Democrat primary debate:

"We see Hillary [Clinton] and other candidates are competing on who will withdraw from Iraq and who is guilty of supporting the Iraqi invasion. This is a moment of glory for the revolutionary movements in the Arab world in general and for the Iraqi resistance movement specifically. I think Democrats will do good if they will withdraw as soon as they are in power."

That's not to say the terrorists don't dig Obama. They do. Ala Senakreh of the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade:

"I think Obama's success that I heard about in the media is an important success. He won popularity in spite of the Zionists and the conservatives, whom he greatly defeated. I think he can be a great leader but I don't think that the American regime will allow him to progress. They will try to get rid of him."

Jihad Jaara of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, leader of the 2002 siege of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, wholeheartedly endorses the Democrats:

"Of course Americans should vote Democrat."

Klein writes that terrorists generally love Democrats and hate Republicans:

"... I have talked countless times off-the-record to terrorists about U.S. politics. And one hundred percent of the time the terror leaders favored the Democrats over the Republicans. I never once came across a single terrorist who supported any Republican. And why would they? The Democrats largely want to withdraw from Iraq. They want dialogue with Syria and Iran. The terrorists share those same goals, because they believe it will lead to the downfall of the American empire and the spread of Islam. ... Overwhelmingly, the terrorists favored Hillary Clinton to win in 2008."

The terrorists had nothing good to say about Republican candidates for president. Ramadan Adassi, an Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigades leader, hates Giuliani:

"If I had the occasion to meet him I would hurt him. For the sake of the American people Giuliani shouldn't be elected. He is a disgusting guy and I think Americans must think very hard about their future and their soldiers who will be killed when they come to elect their leaders."

Ali Senkreh doesn't think much of John McCain either, whom he considers a "stupid person":

"To you McCain I say this so-called war on terror you're promoting is causing only the loss of life of innocent people all around the world and the loss of your dog soldiers, and what is the result for you? Zero. Nothing."

And terrorists really hate President Bush, almost as much as the Loony Left here at home. Adassi calls Bush:

"...a psychopath, an arrogant person whose hands are full of blood of American soldiers in Iraq, American civilians killed on September 11, Palestinian, Iraqi, Afghani and other innocent children and women and innocent civilians. A stupid and insane person who will cause the loss even of America's allies in the Arab world."

The terrorists agree with Hillary and Obama. The next time they attack America, they very much prefer that the Democrats are in the White House to answer the hotline. They figure the Democrats favor them.
