Al-Qaida Warns of New Attacks Deadlier than Before


al-qaedaAl-Qaida’s U.S.-born spokesman warned President Barack Obama yesterday that the militant group may launch new attacks that would kill more Americans than previous ones.

In a taunting, 24 minute message that dwelled on Obama’s setbacks, including the loss of Massachusetts Senate seat to the Republicans, Adam Gadahn set out al-Qaida’s conditions for peace with the U.S., including cutting support for Israel and withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

Gadahn said that if you compared the number of dead Muslims “with the relatively small number of Americans we have killed so far, it becomes crystal-clear that we haven’t even begun to even the score,” he said, dressed in a white robe and turban.

“That’s why next time, we might not show the restraint and self-control we have shown up until now,” he said. Even if al-Qaida was defeated, “hundreds of millions of Muslims” would still fight the U.S., he added.

Al-Qaida offered the same conditions for an end to hostilities to then President George W. Bush in 2007, including the release of all Muslim prisoners and cutting off aid to Middle East governments.

Gadahn’s statement was notable for its mocking tone, in which he described Obama as “a devious, evasive and serpentine American president with a Muslim name,” and seemed to delight in his setbacks.

“You’re no longer the popular man you once were, a year ago or so,” he crowed, ascribing his drop in popularity to the escalation of the U.S. wars abroad.

At the time of Obama’s election, many analysts said al-Qaida was worried that his race and Muslim family connections would make him more appealing to Muslims and Arabs angry at Bush’s foreign policy.

In its statements since his election, al-Qaida has taken pains to show the continuity between Obama’s foreign policy and that of his predecessor.

Gadahn is wanted by the FBI since 2004 with a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction. He is also known as Azzam al-Amriki, Arabic for the American.

  1. I have a hard time taking this guy dressed up in a halloween beard and dime store turbine seriously. Come back and try again after you get a makeover buddy.

    I thought somebody stuck my Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves Disney DVD back in the player.

  2. Can you believe that this man is Jewish!
    It goes to show us just how far the evil inclination can drag us down. The Yezer Hara can even take someone away from the pleasures of American society and bring them to a religion of murder and destruction for no personal benefit. At least, we can leave behind our personal pleasure in order to pursue kindness and Torah study.

  3. From what I could find on the net, his father was an apikores who converted to Xtianity and his mother was a shiksa from Pennsylvania.

    This is what happens with krum families, but he is not Jewish.
