Qaeda scorns Obama, urges attacks on United States

DUBAI (Reuters) - Al Qaeda's second-in-command urged Muslims to keep up attacks on the "criminal" United States and criticized U.S. president-elect Barack Obama for promising to back Israel.

The U.S. Homeland Security Department said the message by Ayman al-Zawahri, the first al Qaeda comment on Obama's election, held no indications of an increased threat to the U.S. homeland.

Zawahri also warned Obama of failure should he pursue the policies of President George W. Bush, according to an audio tape posted on Islamist websites on Wednesday.

The Egyptian militant also criticized Obama, born to a Muslim Kenyan father, for what he described as turning his back on his Muslim roots.

Zawahri attacked Obama as a "house slave," contrasting him with 1960s black American Muslim leader Malcolm X.

"You represent the direct opposite of honorable black Americans like ... Malcolm X," Zawahri said on the tape, which included video footage of Malcom X.

"The Muslim nation received with extreme bitterness your hypocritical...stance toward Israel," he said. "You were born to a Muslim father, but you chose to stand with the enemies of Muslims."

An Obama spokeswoman in Washington said the president-elect's office was not planning to comment.

A U.S. counterterrorism official said the message showed that al Qaeda -- which masterminded the Sept 11, 2001, attacks on the United States -- was isolated but still a threat.

"The message...is remarkable chiefly as an additional sign that al-Qaeda is out of touch with so much of the world," the official said.

Homeland Security Department spokeswoman Laura Keehner, asked if the message changed the department's assessment of the threat to the United States, said: "Not that I've seen. We maintain that there's no credible information to suggest there's an imminent threat against the homeland at this time."

During a visit to Israel in July, Obama assured Israel and its U.S. Jewish supporters he was a friend who would not press for peace concessions that would compromise its security.

Hailing Israel as a "miracle," he promised staunch support and held only a low-profile meeting with Palestinian leaders in the occupied West Bank.

The audio recording was accompanied by visuals including a picture of Obama wearing a yarmulke.

"America, the criminal, trespassing crusader, continues to be the same as ever, so we must continue to harm it, in order for it to come to its senses," Zawahri said, addressing Muslims across the world.

"Its criminal, expansionist crusader project in your lands has only been neutralized by the sacrifices of your sons, the mujahideen," he said in an audio recording.

Zawahri urged Islamists fighting U.S. forces and those of the Shi'ite-led Iraqi government to stay the course, saying that U.S.-led forces were being routed.

"The American people, by electing Obama, declared their anxiety and fear about the future toward which the policy of the likes of Bush was leading them, and so they decided to support someone calling for withdrawal from Iraq."

In a similar message to Islamists fighting Ethiopian and government forces in Somalia, Zawahri urged them not to stop.

"America is gathering its wounds in Iraq, and Ethiopia is looking for a way out...don't put down your weapons before the mujahid state of Islam has been set up in Somalia."

Really not worth our time to worry about what Al-Qaeda says. They're terrorists. Their job is scare people who take their words too seriously, and make their own lives miserable over it. I don't buy into these things that appear on the news. It doesn't affect any of my daily activities. I focus on my energy on things I can control...like my homework that's due tonight. lol

Anyways, what does this have to do with a corrupt government?

So you don't think they (Al-Qaeda) mean these threats?

Another possibility is that the government is expecting an attack and this is thrown out there to let people know ahead of time.
