I should have posted this sooner - better late than never. Enjoy the September '06 recruiting video issued by Al Qaeda's American convert and ambassador to the stateside kuffar, Adam Gadahn (Azzam The American). With a nice intro from Ayman al Zawahari, Azzam neatly skips past niceties like societal plurality and freedom of religion, not to mention quality-of-life essentials such as veal chops, fast cars, jazz and sexy women. He instead insists that Islam is "the religion chosen by God for all of mankind." Here's the question from Azzam: "Isn't it time for every Christian, Jew, Pagan and atheist to cast off the cloud of spiritual darkness which enshrouds them and emerge into the light of Islam?" In case you're unclear on the preferred answer: "...the end of the unbelievers is the fire...as agreed by all Muslims." I should think the many Muslims who surely disavow such extremist cant would condemn his words loud and clear. I must have missed that somehow. There is another recent Azzam video here (first of two video links in the post) in which he names critics of Islamism such as Daniel Pipes and a subsequently rather unamused Robert Spencer, and urges them to convert. This Orange County Register story has more on Gadahn's CA roots. ABC-TV's Brian Ross reported in July on an Azzam Unmasked video in which he discusses with relish the idea of a shooting spree at Camp Pendelton, to avenge Islam. Steve Watson at Infowars believes Azzam, like Al Qaeda, could well be an invention of the CIA, aided and abetted by the Zionist lobby. Yeah, that's probably it.
