Before the election, the radical Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradhawi even issued a fatwa supporting John McCain: “Personally, I would prefer for the Republican candidate, McCain, to be elected. This is because I prefer the obvious enemy who does not hypocritically [conceal] his hostility toward you . . . to the enemy who wears a mask [of friendliness].”
Obama makes the jihadists nervous because he is an appealing new face whose ascension undermines the belief that Islam and the West are locked in an inescapable clash of civilizations. “The Democrats kill you slowly without you noticing it. . . . They are like a snake whose touch is not felt until its poison enters your body,” observes Qaradhawi.
Huh? Does this resemble any Democrats you know? Reid? Pelosi? Oh wait, Qaradhawi must be referring to…Evan Bayh.
I think everyone is kinda losing their heads. Of course, if al-Queda wants to misunderestimate the U.S. (to use a phrase…), I’m OK with that.
