It’s Official – Al Qaeda Is Racist

When Barack Obama ran for president, he promised us change. He spoke of surrendering in Iraq. Okay, he spoke of withdrawing troops. To do so before the job is finished is giving up, a colloquialism for surrender. During this time, many on the left told us the reason Al Qaeda hated us was because of our brash nature as Americans and because of George Bush’s cowboy mentality.

So, now that GW is a lame duck and President-elect Barack H. Obama is here to save the day, how does Al Qaeda feel? Apparently a little snarky and racist. At least that’s how the spin will go most likely.

According to, Bin Laden’s number 2 man, Al-Zawahiri just called Barack Obama a “house negro.”

CAIRO,Egypt (AP) – Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri insulted Barack Obama in the terror group’s first reaction to his election, calling him a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites. The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.

Al-Zawahri also called Obama—along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice—”house negroes.”

Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term “abeed al-beit,” which literally translates as “house slaves.” But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as “house negroes.”

I would have loved to be the fly in the room that saw Obama’s reaction to that. For the man who promised the whole world loved him, it must have come as quite a shock to discover that Al Qaeda apparently has no more respect for him than they did for George Bush or Bill Clinton.
