The Emir of the Taliban in Pakistan’s tribal region is not impressed with the new leadership in the White House.
Obviously, he did not buy into the hope and change hype by the Obama Campaign.
MEMRI reported, via ROP:
In an interview held in late February 2009 with Al-Qaeda’s media arm, Mullah Nazeer Ahmad, the Emir of the Taliban Mujahideen in Pakistan’s tribal district of South Waziristan, stated that the Taliban’s jihad will not stop after the U.S. leaves Afghanistan. Ahmad further stressed that the Taliban’s jihad is not limited to Pakistan and Afghanistan, as its objectives are global.
On Objectives of Jihad: Not Limited to Pakistan and Afghanistan – That Division Was Created By the Jews
“No, [we will not stop if the U.S. leaves Afghanistan]; our jihad is against the Kuffar [infidels] in order to get back our lands that the Kuffar has occupied. Our jihad is meant to make supreme the Word of Allah and to establish the system of Shari’a. Our jihad isn’t limited only to Pakistan and Afghanistan; this division that ‘this is Pakistan’ and ‘this is Afghanistan’ has been created by the Jews; we reject it. We, all Muslims, whether they be in Saudi Arabia, Iraq or Palestine or anywhere in the world, are all brothers. This division has been created among Muslims; we do not accept this division…
“[The defeat of the U.S. worldwide] is very near, very near. Its economy has utterly collapsed. It has met with defeat in Somalia and Iraq. It’s about to be defeated in Afghanistan. The thuggery it has started will definitely end.”
On Barack Obama as U.S. President and Expectations From the U.S.
“One white ass has gone; a black ass has taken over in his place. To have any expectations will corrode our belief. We put our trust only in Allah… We cannot expect from Bush or Obama that they will be relief for us. Instead, our difficulties are soothed by jihad.”
