Never in recent memory, has the world seen such fast rise, of an ultra radical group, as that of the Islamic elements called “Al Qaida”, and by the same speed, the world now has begun to witness the disintegration, and psychological and moral bankruptcy, of this group, at the hands of the most unlikely of all.
The election of, a new American, named Barak Hussein Obama. Young, well educated, very articulate, and a very thoughtful politician, the son of an African Muslim man, a man who abandoned his responsibilities to this child, and a while American wife, a woman who spent years of struggle, so that her child, now “ President Obama” can have a better shot at the American Dream. And, that he did…thanks, in large part to the American Mother, and to the American grand parents, who refused to give up on this brilliant American. As to his name! I submit, it was not of his choosing… yet under the sad circumstances, he made the very best of both worlds.
As to his dead African father, Obama has done rather well without. And, as far as his religious beliefs and affiliation, we all know that is a matter of personal choice, and we also know that there are millions of people of the Christian faith, with an Arab names, so, in this case, the name Hussein that was given to him in birth, or the Hebrew name Barak should not hold any significance what so ever.
Undoubtedly, the ball began to roll downward for Al Qaida, by the many losses of its leadership as well as hoards of their compadres, so called Jihadists, in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places.
Those events, have indeed dealt the group a sever blow, then, came the big blow by the Iraqi peoples rejection of the sick cannibalistic mentality of killings and destruction of their own people and neighbors, of all religions, and by spreading fear in the lives of innocent women and children ,at the hands of those Al Qaida thugs.
“The Base” began to witness the core of it’s ideology crumble, and disintegrate under the overwhelmingly positive support, and reception of America’s new young president Barak Obama, by the millions of Arabs and non Arabs alike.
Al Zhawahiri, and the Al Qaida apparatus, had expected the election outcome to be a repetition of the last eight years, they did not expect, and literally were stunned by the news, that over half of voting America, a nation of many peoples of all colors, in a free and democratic process, has in fact insured, yet again, the peaceful transfer of power, without the use of Tanks, or, military force, or Talibani / Al Qaida threats and intimidations. This magnificent process on its own, coupled with Obama’s victory , ushered in a renewed hope, and a new sense of admiration by the world community, for what the American people have done, as a first step in a long journey to correct the many wrong deeds, of old America.
How can all those Arabs and Muslims celebrate, and appreciate what the American people did..? This was the killer question that was on Al Zawahiri’s mind..
The latest statement from Al Zawahiri was the clear evidence that the Arab/ Islamic world needed, to expose and indict Al Qaida and its deep seated hate for anything and anyone with progressive, peace driven ideas, non violent resolution to world problems.
So, I say, the overwhelming support of Obama’s election has sealed the destruction of the core issue on Al Qaida’s agenda. America’s move was very disruptive to Al Qaida’s future planning.
So, why! And, what is the true motive behind the visceral attack on the new popular leader! Why, would Al Zawahiri, if he was, as he professes to be a good Muslim…! Why, would he willingly, stoop to the use of sick slurs, knowing full well, that in Islam, as I know it, we do not differentiate, between blacks and whites, only by the praise and worship of our creator. I now ask, has Al Zawahiri, joined the Skin heads, and the Arian nation …! Or, is he now attempting to enlighten us, yet again, with a new “Fatwa” regarding people of color.
I, can’t help but to wander…as Bobby Kennedy once did… “what would you do, or say if “Allah” turns out to be Black” just like those blacks that our ancestral fathers, Arabs and Muslims, had enslaved, and sold to the Europeans, long before the whites mastered our trade, as slave owners.
It is that endless, eternal struggle between the forces of hate “Al Zhawahiri”and his bunch, and the forces of hope in humanity, looking foreword, change for the betterment of our fellow inhabitants of this earth, lead by new generation of “Yes we can”
