Al-Jazeera, Tool Of The Infidel

How desperate have the Islamist terrorist nutcases become? They have flooded al-Jazeera with threats and obloquy after hearing AJ broadcast the latest tape from Osama bin Laden. They refuse to acknowledge the pleading from their leader that signals his dejection, claiming that the Arabic news agency misrepresented the message:

Al-Qaida sympathizers have unleashed a torrent of anger against Al-Jazeera television, accusing it of misrepresenting Osama bin Laden's latest audiotape by airing excerpts in which he criticizes mistakes by insurgents in Iraq.

Users of a leading Islamic militant Web forum posted thousands of insults against the pan-Arab station for focusing on excerpts in which bin Laden criticizes insurgents, including his followers.

Analysts said the reaction highlighted militants' surprise at bin Laden's words, and their dismay at the deep divisions among al-Qaida and other Iraqi militants that he appeared to be trying to heal.

"It's not about Al-Jazeera, it's about their shock from bin Laden," said Diaa Rashwan, an Egyptian expert on Islamic militant groups. "For the first time, bin Laden, who used to be the spiritual leader who gives guidance, became a critic of al-Qaida and is confessing mistakes. This is unusual."

Unusual? That's an understatement. The terrorists have listened to an unbroken chain of grandiose statements of victory over the infidels that has been shown as a sham. Al-Qaeda operations that would have "celebrated" the anniversary of 9/11 got stopped in their tracks. AQ in Iraq has its reverse lights on and are heading for the borders. The organization can no longer pretend that it holds the momentum -- and Osama's blaming the terrorists for their lack of cohesiveness.

Ironically, that seems to have split them from their ally in the world media. Instead of having AJ to celebrate their rhetoric, they now call the station a "collaborator with the Crusaders". The Al-Fajr Media Center didn't even use that thin level of subtlety, calling then equal to the "traitors" in Iraq. Another web site posted a poem that warned, "As long as we live, you won't be safe, Jazeera."

That sounds ominous for a news service that has usually treated terrorist groups with much more respect than they deserve. Maybe this will wake some AJ executives to the nature of the lunatics whose love they have just lost. (via Michelle Malkin)

UPDATE: On the other hand, they could just cheer themselves up and play a few on-line video games, as Rusty Shackleford discovered:

The game is something that you might very well be familiar with. It's called "Heavy Weapons Deluxe" and it's been around for a long time. Think decades. But here's the twist: enterprising cyber jihadis have updated it so that instead of fighting the communists, you are a mujahideen fighting the forces of tyranny!

You know, the Zionists (Jews), the crusaders (America), the apostate Arab regimes (US allies). The bad guys.

He's got screencaps. You won't be surprised at the images used by the jihadists.
