Advice from Azzam the American --Michael

A fugitive wanted by the FBI urges us to convert to Islam. Zawahiri thinks we should listen to him.

DUBAI (AFP) - The number two in Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged Americans to convert to Islam in a video that featured a converted US national sought by the FBI.

In the 48-minute video, Zawahiri presented "Azzam the American," and urged the "American people in particular and Westerners in general to listen to the extremely serious words of our brother Azzam the American concerning their fate."

"Our brother Azzam the American is trying to lead his own from obscurity towards the light. Listen to him," insisted Zawahiri, who wore a white tunic and turban.

In some sick way, I wonder if Zawahiri isn't actually trying to help us with the example of brother Azzam.

Here is the advice they want us to ponder:

In an Arabic translation of a poorly audible English statement, a man previously identified by the FBI as Adam Yahiye Gadahn said: "I call on all Americans and other infidels to embrace Islam," also reciting Koranic verses in Arabic.

"I call especially on those who have fought for the illusory Crusader plan of (US President George W.) Bush in Afghanistan, Iraq and everywhere else, to convert to Islam," said Gadahn, dressed in a white tunic and turban.

"Time is running out. Choose the right path before it is too late, before you meet the sad end that thousands have (already) known," Gadahn added.

According to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, Gadahn, 28, "is being sought in connection with possible terrorist threats against the United States."

Thanks for the advice Azzam. I'm going to say a prayer for you tomorrow in church.

1 If we convert to Islam, does that make it OK to kill even more of you pigfuckers without regard to civilian life? Because that seems to be the way things work between you Muslims.

2 My favorite part: "He said Islam will prevail "whether Bush likes it or not" and described the West as "the civilization which enslaved Africa, slaughtered native Americans, fired bombs at ... Tokyo and (the Iraqi city of) Fallujah and nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

He forgot Kyoto.

4 Is this the Wayne's World guy? Whose first tape surfaced right around election time 2 years ago?

Don't think I haven't considered it, Azzam, old buddy, old pal. But I can only drag my lazy ass to church once a month at best. Praying five times a day? Fasting for an entire month? I'll pass.

5 Says a lot about Islam when they take the rejects from our society like Johnny Walker and Alakazzm and hold them up as paragons of the religion.

Quick, where do I sign up?

6 Jihadi tradition requires that the Muslim attackers offer the infidels an invitation to convert before the festivities begin.

It could be a prelude to something nasty.

7 What's sad, in a way, is that when Muslims get all het up about the decadent West, it's "Blue State" America they're talking about. It's the nude antiwar bicyclists, the Gay Pride freakshow parades, Paris Hilton, etc. That's what they really loathe, not Christianity. Churchgoing, Army-volunteering "Red State" America they fear and respect. The Blue Staters recognize this whenever they draw one of their idiotic parallels between American Christian "theocrats" and the Muslim maniacs. Although they then fail to think about why they're doing things which support the Muslims.

I think if the Muslims saw America as a land of 300 million Dick Cheneys we wouldn't have any trouble with them.

9 That is a good idea, Lauraw.
Lets create a new Marine Division, made up of soldiers who are willing for a "conversion of convenience". The 1st Muslim Marine Division of the USMC will be able to lay waste to lands of the Middle East, but hey, they will be doing it in the name of Islam. So normal rules would not apply. No regard for civillian life, no "Western" rules against torture, No adherence to Geneva conventions. Let the fuckers get a taste of their own medicine.

10 Ooooh, even better Tushar.
But hey, lets not say they're part of our military. They're just rogue militants that operate outside our control.
We have no idea who is supplying them with all those fancy weapons.

11 Trimegistus, I wouldn't go that far.

Sayed Qutb, ideological godfather of Islamism, writes about a disgusting co-ed dance he saw ... at a church in Colorado.

To the true fanatic, Red and Blue look about the same.

13 what pathetic fools-like muslims have their act together and islam is the be all answer to everything. Don't they realize by the grace of our god we don't just nuke them out of existence.

14 I agree that the Muslims don't make much, if any distinction, between red and blue states. They do I think make a (small) distinction between Christians and Jews, and as much as they hate Christians, they manage to hate Jews even more. And that's one of the reasons why at least one very blue city (New York) is very much on their radar screen - because of its large Jewish population.

However, the left does make a HUGE distinction between red and blue states, so huge that I think that the following from the American Thinker is an accurate statement:

"In the liberal “mind,” conservatives are the greatest villains known to man; an even greater threat than are Muslim terrorists.........

[T]o the liberals the true enemies are the conservatives as well as those proactive in protecting themselves against Muslim attacks."

I sometimes think that the left would convert to Islam in a heartbeat if they could be sure that they would then get back in power and I am absolutely certain that the myth of the 'moderate' Muslim and the msm's continual downplaying of the Muslim angle of acts of terrorism is consciously done because the left/msm cannot bring itself to admit that Islamofacism is a real threat while conservatives are actually their fellow Americans whose overriding goal is to protect all Americans from harm..

15 Spot on, Knemon.
The lemonade socials of the 1940'sare asvile and dangerous to the Islamists as anything that is going on today.

16 Hey, Adam, I thought about you generous offer to convert to Islam.

Fuck you.

17 Hey, Adam, I thought about your generous offer to convert to Islam.

Fuck you.

18 Oops, double post. Lo siento.

19 Tushar,
Should they be issued black vans and stainless mini-14s?

20 In a way, one has to respect Azzam for his ideological consistancy. Unlike Noam Chomsky, New York Time Writers and Rabbi Michael Lerner who are self-hating Jews in denial who constantly undermine (read hate) Israel and the Jewish people. Azzam is a self-hating Jew who does not deny his hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.

Same can be said for non-Jewish liberal academic types who constantly underline America and our War on Terror.

At least Azzam is consistent.
