This quote is from the Washington Post:
In response to another question, Moussaoui expressed a desire to wipe out American Jews, saying he views them differently than the rest of the U.S. population.
“For the American Jew, we will exterminate them,” he said. “For Christians, we have a way to acclimate them if they don’t fight us.”
I take his comments very seriously and I wonder how clued in he was to AQ and their management. Based upon everything I have read and seen I don’t think that he is voicing anything that is uncommon. They have a goal that they are working towards and they see us as an impediment.
I think that history has demonstrated that one should always pay attention when someone says that they are going to try and exterminate you. Moussaoui may not be the head of Iran. He may not have the same tools at his disposal, but he is representative of those we are at war with. It is an ideological battle that we cannot afford to lose.
There are some people who are going to read this post and accuse me overreacting. I guarantee that some people will accuse me of engaging in hysterical hyperbole and claim that I shouldn’t have any fear or concern about this. But I would much rather err on the side of caution.
People should read what men like Moussaoui have to say. I don’t think that we are dealing with sociopaths.
“Testifying shortly after his defense team began presenting its case for sparing his life, Moussaoui also said he had no regrets about the attacks and the grief they caused the victims’ families. When asked directly if he had any regrets, he replied: “None whatsoever.”
Look at this from CNN:
Offering a lengthy explanation of why he hates Americans, Moussaoui criticized the United States’ support for Israel. He said Muslims have been at war with Christians and Jews for centuries. Israel, he said, is “just a missing star in the American flag.”
Moussaoui told jurors that Islam requires Muslims to be the world’s superpower as he flipped through a copy of the Koran searching for verses to support his assertions. One he cited requires non-Muslim nations to pay a tribute to Muslim countries.
“We have to be the superpower. You have to be subdued. We have to be above you,” Moussaoui said.”
He is not the only one who thinks this. This is not a game. Take these comments seriously, it is very important.
