TEL AVIV â€“ Democratic presidential hopefuls flashing their anti-war credentials last night at a national debate by stating they would immediately withdraw from Iraq, encouraged Palestinian terrorist leaders here, who labeled the debate a victory for Iraqi insurgents and “resistance movements” throughout the world.
The debate was widely covered today by the Palestinian and pan-Arab media.
“We see Hillary (Clinton) and other candidates are competing on who will withdraw from Iraq and who is guilty of supporting the Iraqi invasion. This is a moment of glory for the revolutionary movements in the Arab world in general and for the Iraqi resistance movement specifically,” said Abu Jihad, one of the overall leaders of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror organization.
That’s terrific. So terrorists and the Democratic candidates are on the same page:
Abu Muhammad, a leader of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group in northern West Bank city of Telkerem, said he believes both the Democrats and Republicans are controlled by Israel but said he thinks the Democrats are better for his group’s interests.
“They will keep supporting Israel, but, yes, I think the Democrats are preferred and have a bigger chance of withdrawing from Iraq and making deals with Iran and Syria.”
I’m not saying for sure that immediate withdrawal from Iraq would embolden our enemies, but you think about it.
I’m also not trying to show any bias toward Democrats, I’m just reporting how terrorist groups are reacting to the debate and the push for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
The terrorists told WND an electoral win for the Democrats would prove to them Americans are “tired.” 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.
People tend to forget that there are still a good number of radical Islamists wishing death and destruction to America.
