We All Look Alike to Them

I've said it many times--jihadis hate all of us. Even those of us still wearing tie-dye t-shirts.

So you have to enjoy the mental gymnastics of this article about al Qaeda's latest rantings:

As in the past, al-Qaida attempted to conflate Obama with his predecessor, George W. Bush, who was widely disliked by Muslims for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many analysts believe that al-Qaida has been alarmed by Obama's comparative popularity in the Middle East, especially following his landmark speech to the Muslim world in Cairo in June.

"America has come in a new, hypocritical face. Smiling at us, but stabbing us with the same dagger that Bush used," said Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri in the message.

So, let me get this straight.

Al Qaeda hated Bush for invading Iraq and Afghanistan (what, no cutting of slack for the "good" war?).

And al Qaeda also hates Obama for being more popular in the Moslem world?


It's almost as if they simply hate Americans and would be happy to kill any one of us. Remember how Michael Moore commented that it was a shame that al Qaeda killed blue state Americans on 9/11 in New York?

For our enemies, they really don't care about red or blue states. A dead Michael Moore would be as happy a victory for them as a dead American soldier.
