Terrorist Propaganda

I've gotten to know my Iraqi Army friends much better. Every time they see me now, they come give me a hug and call me 'brother.' I really like them and I think of them as my brothers too. Unfortunately, they are victims in this terrible war of terrorist-pedagogues and terror-actors in their own land.

I've met several American citizens who were born and raised in Iraq. (In fact, one of them is an air marshal and a good man.) Some of the interpreters here live in Massachusetts, Michigan, Texas and Arizona. They came back to help both the U.S. and Iraq. They have vested interests in both countries. The troops wholeheartedly appreciate their service. We couldn't do much without them.

On another note, one of my goals is to write and produce a documentary video about suicide terrorism. I was well on my way, and had even talked with a big-name Hollywood film director about it. This deployment to Iraq set me back in one sense, and in another it has helped me gain unique insight to add to my credentials.

As one who is very interested in every educational program and book about terrorism, below is some Islamist propaganda as related on the award-winning documentary program Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West that I ordered not long ago. Enjoy!

…[E]very Muslim and every honorable man who is not a Muslim must stand against the Americans, English and Israelis and endanger their interest wherever they may be.

Who can say even one word against the true Jihad against their colonialist occupiers?
Houses and young men must be sacrificed. Throats must be slit and skulls must be shattered. This is the path to victory.

They [the Americans] are beasts in human form.
—Al-Majd TV (UAE) May 2004, Mamoun Al-Tamimi, Political Commentator

We consider [America] to be an enemy because it is the greatest plunderer of our treasure, our oil, and our resources, while millions in our nation suffer unemployment, poverty, hunger, unmarriageability, ignorance, darkness, and so on.
—Hassan Nasrallah, Hizbullah Secretary-General , Lebanon :

Our motto, which we are not afraid to repeat year after year, is: Death to America ! Death to America !

Furthermore, reality shows that America is behind all problems.

I hope Bush dies in flames, and I want to go to Ariel Sharon and kill him with a gun and stab him with a sword, because of the poor Palestinians!

You see this flag here? It’s going to go on the floor. And too us, our loyalty does not belong to this flag – our loyalty belongs to Allah [praised and exalted is He]! Allah is the greatest!
Don’t be afraid to speak out against injustice in this country, one of the loopholes of this government, is they allow the freedom of expression.
—U.S. Flag burning by Islamic Thinkers Society, June 2005, on a street in New York City

Blessings to whoever put a belt of explosives on his body or on his sons’ and plunged into the midst of the Jews, crying: ‘Allahu Akbar, praise to Allah.’

Until Israel is wiped off the face of the Earth, these cries will continue… Death to Israel! Death to Israel!
—Iranian TV, 2004

There is no terrorist threat.
