Ayman al-Zawahiri: Not Just a Terrorist, Also a Racist

Last updated: July 31, 2020 | November 19, 2008 | Anita Barnes

You didn’t really think that Al Qaeda’s deputy leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, could become any more of an asshole, but it turns out that the intellectual architect of a reactionary band of religious fanatics doesn’t exactly have enlightened views on race relations. Check out what he says in his latest tape about Barack Obama. AP via TPM:

Al-Zawahri says in an audio message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X. He calls Obama a “house negro.”

Who would have known that electing a black president also turns out to have an information-operations component as a bonus? We should want to publicize, far and wide, that Zawahiri is a racist. Drive this discrediting message into the heart of the Muslim world. I wonder what the tens of millions of African and African-American Muslims think about Zawahiri’s charming statement.

As a small business owner, I am familiar with the difficulties that come with running a business. One of those challenges is creating a strong online presence. One that not only represents your ever-changing brand and personality, but also appeals to your target audience. Throughout my web design career, I've built a distinct design style that emphasizes attention to detail. I assume that less is enough when it comes to design. You don't have to have all the bells and whistles only because you can. It's critical to figure out which elements are essential for getting your message through to your customers – and which ones are unnecessary. I'll assist you in sorting through the choices to see what works best for you.
