Someone Sounds Desperate

A new statement by the leading terrorist in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, sounds a desperate tone as he lashes out at Muslim intelligentsia for not supporting his gang of butchers. According to the AP, Zarqawi also sounds pretty pessimistic these days:

An audiotape purportedly made by Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi lashed out Wednesday at Muslim scholars for not speaking out against U.S. actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, saying they have "let us down in the darkest circumstances." ...

"You have let us down in the darkest circumstances and handed us over to the enemy... You have quit supporting the mujahedeen," he said. "Hundreds of thousands of the nation's sons are being slaughtered at the hands of the infidels because of your silence."

Zarqawi obviously doesn't read the New York Times or watch CBS News. If he did, he wouldn't report that Muslims have quit supporting the mujahedeen. The party line in the media here is that Westerners are oppressive occupiers and that the Iraqis want us out. Zarqawi and his gang of bloodthirsty maniacs must see something different.

Perhaps Zarqawi's movement has lost whatever support they might have had in Iraq because they have killed many more Iraqis in their blundering, clumsy campaign than they have Westerners. Iraqis, even the scholars, must revulse at the mass execution-style murders of their sons who only want to restore order to the nation so Iraqis can have a little peace. Butchering those who opposed the invasion and who spent decades helping ordinary Iraqis, like Margaret Hassan, shows that Zarqawi cares little for Iraq and Iraqis and instead has reveled in his ability to spill blood -- an ability that has been curtailed, to Zarqawi's dismay.

Zarqawi's note clearly shows that Tawhid and Jihad is losing the battle for hearts and minds on the ground, even in the Sunni Triangle. He accuses the ulama for selling out "God's orders" in exchange for their "money and sons". It makes Islam sound like a cult of human sacrifice, and combined with the revolting beheadings that Zarqawi videotapes for the Internet, Muslim scholars may finally be waking up to the bastardization of Islam into a premonotheistic death worship.

Late reports have Zarqawi in the north of Baghdad, having lost his base for operations in Fallujah as well as a large number of his operatives there. Expect more desperation from the lunatic as the Coalition continues its offensive against the terrorists in Iraq.
