"Only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States"
A few years back, this former Marxist turned Islamist "called on 'all revolutionaries, including those of the left, even atheists,' to accept the leadership of Islamists such as Osama bin Laden in order to turn Iraq and Afghanistan into 'graveyards of American imperialism.'" Yet here he is attempting to pull on Obama's heartstrings by evoking a little bit of leftist rhetoric along with a little bit of Obama's Islamic heritage.
"Carlos the Jackal to Obama: Help me find terror pal," by Jay Baggett for the World Net Daily, March 1:
Emboldened by President Barack Obama's announcement he will close the Guantanamo facility housing suspected terrorists, one of the most notorious leftist terrorists of the 1970s and 1980s has written the president, asking him for help in finding a "former comrade-in-arms" missing for 14 years, and closing his letter with "Allahu akbar! ... yours in revolution."
Ilich Ramirez Sanchez – aka Carlos the Jackal – penned his letter to Obama from the Paris prison where he is serving a life sentence for the murder of two French agents and an informer, and for a series of deadly bomb attacks in Paris and on French trains, the Glasgow Sunday Herald reported today.
"Mister President, Your decision to close secret CIA jails, honors you," Carlos began before raising the issue of Bruno Breguet, a Swiss national who served as his right-hand man.[...]
Carlos' 2003 book, "Revolutionary Islam" called on "all revolutionaries, including those of the left, even atheists," to accept the leadership of Islamists such as Osama bin Laden in order to turn Iraq and Afghanistan into "graveyards of American imperialism."
"Only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States," the communist revolutionary and convert to Islam wrote in his book.
His Islamic worldview was reflected in the letter to Obama, where he referred to Breguet as a "martyr":
If Bruno truly is dead, we need his body back, so his relatives, friends and comrades, may mourn in neutral Switzerland, this hero of the Palestinian cause, and his eternal soul join our martyrs in heaven.
Carlos concluded by reminding the president of his own Muslim grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, who converted to Islam in the 1950s after having been imprisoned and tortured in Kenya by the British during the Mau Mau rebellion.
I pray God Almighty that one day the peoples of our continent, free at last, may shout with one voice: "God bless our America! And as your Luo grandfather would say: ALLAHU AKBAR!
I remain, Mister President, yours in revolution, "Carlos".
