Al Qaeda:  By Their Fruits Will Ye Know Them

by Hesham A. Hassaballa

In the Name of God, the Subtle, the Loving

On November 18, Ayman Al Zawahiri, the vile terrorist leader who released a new video reacting to the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency. In this statement, he shows himself to be the evil person that he truly is.

He calls the President-elect a “house slave,” using the term that Malcolm X, before he changed his views and turned to orthodox Islam, used to describe his contemporary Black leaders. What an unbelievable slur. Zawahiri claims that America heart is “full of hate.” Nothing could be farther from the truth, and by his slur, he shows the world that it is his heart that is full of hate.

The election of Obama, in fact, shows to the world the truth about America’s heart and essence: that it is full of good, love, and beauty. Despite its deep history of racism and racial injustice, despite the fear of Muslims after 9/11, despite the relentless smear machine hurled at Obama, the country rejected this and elected its first African American president, with an Arabic middle name at that.

Zawahiri talks about the “lions of Islam,” the “Mujahideen,” who are allegedly fighting the good fight on behalf of the Muslim Ummah. These “lions of Islam” are nothing but satanic, blood-thirsty killers. These “lions of Islam” strap bombs around their waists and blow themselves up in mosques, marketplaces, wedding halls, hotels, and other places to wreak massive havoc and murder. These “lions of Islam” will detonate a car bomb, and then blow themselves up to kill the Good Samaritans who rush to help the victims.

These “lions of Islam” viciously behead their victims, and they proudly display their barbarism on sharply produced videos for the world to see, under the holy words of the Shahadah. These “lions of Islam” will kill anyone they deem to be “un-Islamic,” no matter how old or how innocent. These “lions of Islam” are not heroes, they are not martyrs, and they are the enemies of Islam, Muslims, and the entire world.

These “lions of Islam” insult the Precious Lord and defile the Prophet (pbuh) and everything for which he lived, struggled, and died.

You know, it is funny: whenever these terrorist leaders make these videos for the Ummah to see, they are dressed in long robes, turbans with the “tail” at the back, and long beards with the moustache cut short. They do so, because they are “following the Sunnah” of the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

What a joke. You may wear a turban like the Prophet (pbuh), Mr. Zawahiri (you lost the honor of being called “doctor” a long time ago), you may have a long beard like the Prophet (pbuh), you may speak Arabic like the Prophet (pbuh), but you are nothing like the Prophet (pbuh).

You, Mr. Zawahiri, are a vile, cold-blooded murderer with the blood of thousands of innocent poeple on your hands. You, Mr. Zawahiri, are an insult to the Ummah, not its savior. You, Mr. Zawahiri, are a neo-Kharijite who must be fought to the very end.

There is much injustice in the world today, and Muslims are frequent victims of that injustice. The blame goes far and wide. But, the answer to that injustice is not these mutants who claim to be Muslims.

No way, now how, no Al Qaeda.
