Ayman's Right, You Know...

Al Qaeda's No. 2 man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has issued a new videotape. He warns us again of who we are at war with and what's at stake:

The Egyptian-born physician said the Hezbollah and Palestinian battles against Israel would not be ended with "cease-fires or agreements." The fighting began last month following a Palestinian cross-border raid in which an Israeli soldier was captured, then expanded to Lebanon after Hezbollah militants captured two other soldiers in a raid earlier this month.

"The shells and rockets ripping apart Muslim bodies in Gaza and Lebanon are not only Israeli (weapons), but are supplied by all the countries of the crusader coalition. Therefore, every participant in the crime will pay the price," al-Zawahri said.

The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires. ... It is a Jihad for God's sake and will last until (our) religion prevails," al-Zawahri said. "We will attack everywhere."

He's right, of course, and it's good for us to hear it, just as it was good for the Allies to study Mein Kampf to understand Hitler's mind and motivations. Zawahiri lays it out there for all to see: we are in a world war, in which Lebanon and Iraq and Afghanistan are just battles or campaigns. We have been in this war since the "Prophet" announced the hijra fifteen hundred years ago. The enemy, islam, has triumphed more than it's failed and Western civilization has been saved several times just by the skin of its teeth (as at Tours, Lepanto, and Vienna). Let's see the money quote again:

"It is jihad for God's sake and will last until (our) religion prevails."

That is, until the entire world is clad in burkhas or kafiyahs and the muezzin sing out the call to prayer from Copenhagen to Omaha to Tokyo. Western liberals had better want such a world, becuase that is what their opposition to present American policies is helping to bring about. What I fear most -- more even than the enemy's efforts -- is the coming backlash, precipitated by some hideous muslim atrocity, in which the West will strike back with all it has and people will die not by dozens or hundreds, but by the millions. Let us pray it does not have to come to that. If only liberals and the establishment media would just shut the hell up and let those who are better informed, trained, led, and motivated get on with today's rough business so we do not have to burn mountains of corpses (including those of many traitorous Westerners) later...

One enemy, one war, one victory.
