The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah has sent out a message congratulating Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad movement's addition to the US State Department's list of terrorist organizations, reports Evan F. Kohlman. In the message, they praise John Kerry for criticizing the President, imply that terrorism has struck fear into John Kerry's heart, and that his election would signal that terrorism is working.

Special congratulations from the Ansar al-Sunnah Army to the Tawhid wal-Jihad Movement, on the occasion of its addition to the list of terrorists.....

Our congratulations should not be a surprise to anyone who understands the true nature of our Islamic religion, which is based n verses from the noble Quran and the words of the noble prophet. We are optimistic that this recent declaration by the evil Bush government [adding Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad group to the list of terrorist organizations] will only bring us joy and happiness....

Praise be to Allah, it increased the joy in our hearts that John Kerry, the presidential candidate criticized the Bush governmentfor taking so long in making this declaration. The one who may be president of America [John Kerry] is already struck with terror by our brothers from the Tawheed wal-Jihad Movement [Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's group]. The repeated atacks that have targetted the evil Bush are now echoing on Kerry, even though he is not yet a president. This is what Allah means when he commands us to 'terrorize your enemy and the enemy of Allah."

The full document may be downloaded here. I do not believe that if the American people elect John Kerry it will be because we have caved to terrorism. However, it is clear to me that Kerry's election will be interpreted this way by the Islamist movement and their terrorist allies.
