Video: Al Qaeda Threatens ex-Thai PM

al qaeda threatens thai PM.JPG

Worst al Qaeda video ever? The first thing you'll notice right off the bat is that barely five seconds in someone can be clearly heard whispering right next to the camera. Then 42 seconds in some guy inserts his hand into view from off camera in what appears to be some kind of direction to those reading the prepared statement.

If that wasn't bad enough, then they get a guy up there to wag his fingers as someone else narrates in English. The effect, I think, is supposed to be of him reading the statement in Arabic while someone translates. But look closely at the guys lips. They don't move.

Is this amateur hour or what?

To be honest, I haven't seen a real al Qaeda video this bad since ...... never?

It wouldn't surprise me if these guys were a bunch of wannabes. Then again, since al Qaeda is a brand name with no trademark protection then any one can claim to be al Qaeda and, well, they kind of are. That's what the leaderless jihad called for by al Qaeda's leaders (oxymoron?) means.

Anyway, here's the video.

If the video goes down, let me know. I have it backed up.

Bangkok Post:

The English language commentary included threats to kill Thaksin, "to avenge the killing of Muslims in the South in 2004". It referred to the killings at Tak Bai district town, while Thaksin was premier.

"We will get you any time, anywhere in the world," said the threat.

Thaksin Shinawatra was the former PM of Thailand until he was overthrown by a military coup in 2006. His sister is the current PM.

1 Al Qaeda threatens Thai. Big deal. They threatened you and you're still here. Al Qaeda's pussy. That's why they threaten instead of doing. Those that make threats don't do shit.

6 Looks very much like some director trying to train bad actors in a movie. This looks very dodgy. The guy speaking English (of course is not the person in film) has a Pashtoon (Afghan/Pakistani) accent and the guy speaking on film is speaking in Arabic. What a weird combination to find in Afghanistan or Pakistan. Either this video was discovered by the army in a raid in Afghanistan, or it's some actors trying to create a portfolio of their worst acting films !!

7 I also forgot to mention, another YouTube video of a Channel 4 report showing a British, Swedish and a Canadian fighter in Syria.

9 Birbal Dhar: The British, Swedish and Canadian fighters aren't really Englishmen, Swedes, or Canadian Merely imports from other lands with a piece of paper saying they are what they aren't.

10 @Greyrooster - That Canadian guy in that Channel 4 YouTube link is a white Muslim convert - Where are you going to deport him if you want to throw people out of the country, who support a foreign ideology !! Before the end of the cold war, there were many communists in western countries, nobody seemed to say they should be deported to the Soviet Union or Germany, where Karl Marx had the idea of communism !!

11 Birbal:
True. But that's one of three and we don't know his families background.

Pre world war two Nazi sympathizers and communists weren't deported. (1) Commies were our allies. (2) Nazis and their sympathizers were Americans to begin with. Something like 30% of the population. Commies and Nazis weren't against America. They were simply Americans with their own ideals. German Americans regardless of their their beliefs showed their patriotism once we went to war.

Were would I deport Muslims to? Where ever they wished to go. Perhaps back to their home countries. I'm convinced that Islam is incompatible with American ways and secularism. I base that on what I see in other countries. Is there one country that has taken in Muslims that doesn't regret it? Is there a country who has taken in Muslims that isn't experiencing problems with them?
Give up Islam and stay or be deported is what I would do. In other words OUTLAW ISLAM in America.
In any case I didn't mention deporting anyone in my post. But I'm for it. Why bring problems into your country? And if you made a mistake why not correct it? Thx.
