Holy Jihad, Batman! Al-Qaeda Offers Condolences?

Holy jihad, Batman!

Did Al-Qaeda just officially offer condolences to innocent civilians murdered by their stupid acts of terrorism?

Well, sort of…

According to CNN, Adam Gadahn- also known as ‘Azzam the American’- appeared in a 17-minute video released on Islamist online forums late Friday, offering condolences to the families of innocent people killed in Al-Qaeda attacks.

“We express our condolences to the families of the Muslim men, women and children killed in these criminal acts…” he says in the video.

Wait a minute. Did a member of Al-Qaeda just admit that their acts of terrorism are ‘criminal acts’?

Well, that’s a first, indeed.

Furthermore, he stated that Al-Qaeda “also expresses the same in regard to the unintended Muslim victims of the mujahedeen’s operations against the crusaders and their allies and puppets, and to the countless faceless and nameless Muslim victims of the murderous crusades” in Afghanistan, Pakistan’s Waziristan regions and Swat Valley, he continued.

CNN rightfully noted that, “It is a rare example of Al-Qaeda offering condolences to the families of those killed in the group’s own attacks.”

Well, sort of…

The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point recently released a stunning report which found that Muslims have accounted for 85 percent of total casualties from Al-Qaeda attacks between 2004-2008. Even more astounding, during the last two years of the study (2006-2008), the percentage of Al-Qaeda’s murdered victims who were Muslim skyrocketed to an almost-unbelievable 98 percent.

Using that math, this means that Al-Qaeda is apologizing to 85-98% of total innocent civilians murdered by their ‘criminal’ and ungodly acts of terrorism.

Even so, this is still not good enough.

They still need to apologize to the remaining 2-15% of non-Muslim innocent men, women and children murdered by Al-Qaeda (and their franchisees) in places like Bali, Madrid and London throughout the years.

This is because Islam forbids the wanton murder of ANY innocent human being, regardless of whether they are Muslim or not.

So although it is a significant gesture that Al-Qaeda has now officially ‘apologized’ to 85-98% of their innocent civilian victims, they still need to completely disavow the murderous violence of their terrorist criminal enterprise and apologize to the remaining 2-15% of the non-Muslim civilian victims who have been brutally murdered by their terrorist cohorts in places like Bali, Madrid and London.

Until that beautiful (and unlikely) day, Al-Qaeda and their brainless zombie pawns will continue to be an enemy to all of mankind.
