Wake-up call for the left?

Last week, Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, used a racial slur to attack President-elect B. Hussein Obama. In an audio message posted on an al-Qaeda-affiliated Web site, al-Zawahiri said this: "And in you [Obama] and in Colin Powell, [Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice and your likes, the words of Malcolm X concerning house negroes are confirmed."

As the Campaign for Working Families PAC opines, that little diatribe should serve as a wake-up for the American Left:

There has also been a temptation on the Left to think that if we could just stop being pro-Israel and give the Palestinians a state, the conflict with Islamofascism would end. Wrong again. al-Zawahiri mentions Jews once in his diatribe. He doesn’t mention the Palestinians at all. There is no doubt that he and the rest of the jihadists want a second Holocaust of the Jews. But that would only whet their appetite. They want us all dead – Jews, Christians, moderate Muslims – anyone who believes in human dignity and freedom.

Is it too much to hope that Al-Zawahiri’s "welcome" to President-elect Obama will be a reality check for the American Left and for the incoming administration? Will they finally understand that we have not been at war for seven years because of oil or Halliburton or because we have a "Texas cowboy" in the White House? Having a Chicago progressive in the Oval Office won’t deter our enemies either. I hope and pray al-Zawahiri has started a long overdue education for millions of Americans on the Left.
