J-E-W-S, as Jihad Cindy’s pops might say.

Some no-name backbencher or Sadr manque trying to stir a little interest in his agenda?

Not exactly.

He’s got it all figured out:

“Some people say ‘we saw you beheading, kidnappings and killing. In the end we even started kidnapping women who are our honor,'” al-Mashhadani said. “These acts are not the work of Iraqis. I am sure that he who does this is a Jew and the son of a Jew.”

“I can tell you about these Jewish, Israelis and Zionists who are using Iraqi money and oil to frustrate the Islamic movement in Iraq and come with the agent and cheap project.”

I’m inclined to goof on him by photoshopping a yarmulke into a picture of Zarqawi, but I know it’ll eventually end up on Antiwar.com as “evidence.” So I think I’ll pass.

Nice job on the phrase “son of a Jew,” by the way. Logically, it’s no more pejorative than “Jew” — but it feels that way, doesn’t it? Kind of like how calling someone “half-retarded” is somehow worse than “retarded,” even though rationally it shouldn’t be.

Can you guess which strain of Sunni Islam this turd practices?

I knew you could.

Cause for hope? The insurgency has — inadvertently — helped Israel. Just not in the way al-Mashhadani thinks.
