How Our Enemies View America and Iraq
For anyone that doesn't believe Iraq is the center of the war on terror, I have put together some statements from our terrorist enemies that you should probably read:
Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Qaeda, April 23, 2006:
The West created the United Nations to defend their unjust doctrine.
America and Europe considers the Jihad groups in Palestine,
Chechnya, Iraq and Afghanistan as Terrorists, so how can we dialog
with them without the use of weapons. And the leaders of our region
considers America and Europe as friends and allies, and consider the
Jihad groups against the Crusaders Terrorist groups, so how can we
have an understanding with them, without weapons? The UN is an infidel
organization, and whomever accepts its ruling is also an infidel. It
is a tool to execute the Crusader and Zionist decisions against
Mohsen Rezai, Iranian Expediency Council Secretary, June 8, 2006:
America seems so big, but in fact is like a paper tiger, even the
slightest tremor could easily make it crumple and disappear. That's
why America's strength depends upon maintaining its hegemony.
Shehzad Tanweer, one of the London bombers, July 8, 2006 :
We are 100% committed to the cause of Islam. We love death the way you
love life. I tell all you British citizens to stop your support to
your lying British government, and to the so-called "war on terror,"
and ask yourselves, why would thousands of men be willing to give
their lives for the cause of Muslims?
Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, September 28, 2006:
The American military bases, with their large areas, are an ideal
environment for trying out your Muslim scientists' and experts'
non-conventional bombs: the biological and the so-called
Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda deputy leader, December 22, 2006:
The first is that you Democrats are not the ones who won the midterm
election, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather the
Mujahideen, the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq, are the
ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are
the ones who lost.
Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, October 10, 2006:
We haven't had enough of your American blood yet….
We call on the lame duck Bush not to hurry up in escaping the same
way the defense minister did….
Remain steadfast in the battlefield you coward, George W.
We will not rest from our Jihad until we are under the olive trees of
Rumieh and we have blown up the filthiest house, which you call the
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, al-Qaeda head of the Islamic State of Iraq,
February 2, 2007:
We are not afraid of your coalitions.... We have drunk blood in the
past, and we find no blood sweeter than that of the Byzantines
or, Christians…. Roast their flesh with car bombs, cut off their
supply lines with explosive charges and tear out their hearts with
sniper fire. Know that offense is the best form of defense, and be
careful not to lay down your weapons before the war is over…. We are
not fighting out of nationalism, but with the aim of making Allah's
Mullah Dadullah, March 2, 2007:
Next spring, we will bring shameful defeat upon the Jews and the
Christians. The cries you are now hearing from them once a day, you
will hear them 20 times a day. The number of countries abandoning
America will be doubled, and countries will refrain from helping or
allying with the U.S. America will remain alone. We pray to Allah that
America will remain without an ally.
Abu al-Layth al-Libi, leader of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, April 28, 2007:
Immediately after the collapse of the Taliban, gloomy events
hindered the people and prevented the movement of the mujahideen….
Everyone was shocked and overwhelmed waiting to see what the West,
which was coming with its military machine, would do…. Today we are
experiencing mountains of realistic and true hopes in Afghanistan,
while our enemy is experiencing mountains of weakness, fear and
apprehension.… We will finish off the remnants of the enemy's force
and completely crush it.… Abu Musab al-Zarqawi took the jihad from
the edges of the place of the real conflict to the focal point of the
conflict, which is Iraq.
Mullah Dadullah, high-ranking Taliban leader, May 14, 2007:
We will be executing attacks in Britain and the U.S. to demonstrate
our sincerity and make them understand how hard it is to endure under
a foreign occupation.
Adam Gadhan, a.k.a. Azzam the American, American spokesman for
al-Qaeda, May 29, 2007:
You and your people will…experience things, which will make you
forget all about the horrors of September 11, Afghanistan and Iraq,
and Virginia Tech. And let us be clear: A pullout from Iraq alone, in
the absence of compliance with the remainder of our legitimate
demands, will get you nowhere, and will not save you from our strikes.
So stop wasting your time and trying to save face with these futile
farcical maneuvers on Capital Hill and start making some serious moves.
Sheikh Hussein bin Mahmoud, senior al-Qaeda leader, April 17, 2007:
May Allah send the Muslim nation someone who will kill them even
more savagely, strike terror in their souls, tear their hearts
out…cut their heads off, tear them limb from limb and shed their blood
These are all their own words. You don't have to listen to our politicians or government, simply listen to them. They want nothing more then to kill as many of the infidels, that is everyone that is not of the true Islamic faith, and control the world. In their warped way of thinking this is ordained upon them by the Koran and will guarantee them martyrdom and a place with Allah, each with 40 virgins. I may not be a political analyst or expert, but if I was one of the Democrat Presidential candidates I would not be happy with the statement of Ayman al-Zawahiri...."you Democrats are not the ones who won the midterm election, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather the Mujahideen, the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq, are the ones who won......" Even tho he is dead maybe he understood our Congress better than the American people.
