The terrorists told WorldNetDaily an electoral win for the Democrats would prove to them Americans are "tired."(The latest siege, this time at a mosque,where terrorists had taken shelter after firing rockets at Israel, then demanded women and children provide a human shield for them. At least one woman has died.) What tough guys those terrorists are, hiding in sacred places of worship behind veiled women.
They rejected statements from some prominent Democrats in the U.S. that a withdrawal from Iraq would end the insurgency, explaining an evacuation would prove resistance works and would compel jihadists to continue fighting until America is destroyed.
They said a withdrawal would also embolden their own terror groups to enhance "resistance" against Israel. "Of course Americans should vote Democrat," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, told WND.
Together with the Islamic Jihad terror group, the Brigades has taken responsibility for every suicide bombing inside Israel the past two years, including an attack in Tel Aviv in April that killed American teenager Daniel Wultz and nine Israelis.And killing teenagers. At the time, terror leaders rejoiced that Daniel was the "best target combination---American and Zionist".
The Israelis have withdrawn from Gaza in good faith but the rockets have not stopped.
In a recent interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, stated, "The jihadists (are) in Iraq. But that doesn't mean we stay there. They'll stay there as long as we're there." Pelosi would become House speaker if the Democrats win the majority of seats in next week's elections.And this:
WND read Pelosi's remarks to the terror leaders, who unanimously rejected her contention an American withdrawal would end the insurgency.
Islamic Jihad's Saadi, laughing, stated, "There is no chance that the resistance will stop."
He said an American withdrawal from Iraq would "prove the resistance is the most important tool and that this tool works. The victory of the Iraqi revolution will mark an important step in the history of the region and in the attitude regarding the United States."
Jihad Jaara said an American withdrawal would "mark the beginning of the collapse of this tyrant empire (America)."
"Therefore, a victory in Iraq would be a greater defeat for America than in Vietnam."
Jaara said vacating Iraq would also "reinforce Palestinian resistance organizations, especially from the moral point of view.
Hamas' Abu Abdullah argued a withdrawal from Iraq would "convince those among the Palestinians who still have doubts in the efficiency of the resistance."Meanwhile the terror-state Iran continues on its nuclear path and is test-firing missiles that can reach Israel, and Somalia, where much of it started with our withdrawal, is firing up as well.
And new details are emerging about the US-bound London plane plot that was averted at the last minute---they wanted to blow them up not over the ocean, but over US cities to maximize casualties.
They were targeting 10 flights.
UPDATE: And one more thing, Jihad Jarra was speaking from an island off the coast of England, (uh, London's still the capitol of England ya know) "speaking to WND from exile in Ireland, where he was sent as part of an internationally brokered deal that ended the church siege." Erin Go Bragh?
UPDATE: Via RedState, Winston-Salem Journal:
Mershon told those attending the cybersecurity conference that representatives of MI5, the British intelligence service, had briefed the FBI on the liquid-explosives case in recent weeks. "It would make your hair stand up to be in the room to hear that presentation," Mershon said, according to GSN.
Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert and Georgetown University professor, said the case indicates that Islamic extremists remain focused on attacking U.S. cities.
"They were clearly desirous of exceeding 9/11," Hoffman said. "The loss of life in the air and on the ground would be significant."
