The other side says, “Bring it on.” From the SITE Institute, with thanks to DC Watson:
A recent message from al-Qaeda in Iraq welcomes new US reservists recently deployed for active duty in Iraq….
Addressing the soldiers specifically, the message argues: “cross worshippers: we have more and more killing and death for you.good news, we will get you [with] soldiers (mujahideen) who love to be martyrs as much as you love to run away.”
Cross worshippers? This is yet another example of the jihadists’ persistent fantasy that they are fighting modern-day Crusaders. I will touch on this in my forthcoming book from Regnery Publishing, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades, which has been scheduled for July publication. (All I have to do is finish it.)
The current situation in Iraq, according to the communiquÃ© “is created by the grace of Allah and what was achieved by the mujahideen when they rubbed their (Americans) noses in the dirt of humiliation.”
There’s a touch of Baghdad Bob to this, but apparently this brand of empty bravado sells well to the home crowd.
