al-Qaeda Is Already Celebrating Trump’s “Important” Victory

A prominent al-Qaeda-linked jihadist, Abdallah Muhammad bin-Sulayman al-Muhaysini, has declared that Donald Trump’s election is a huge victory for the terrorist group.

Muhaysini is a religious adviser and financial manager for Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra), al-Qaeda’s arm in Syria. He has been designated a terrorist by the US government.

He sent out a series of tweets celebrating the victory of Donald Trump as a huge win for jihadists. Muhaysini was ecstatic that a President Trump will “bomb the sh*t” of out the Middle East and escalate the anti-jihadi operation into a war against Islam. Theis proves to worried Muslims that terrorist propaganda is correct, that Western civilization hates Islam, and the two are inherently incompatible.

Trump constantly asks why President Obama refuses to say “radical Islamic terrorism” – this is why. Obama has fought hard to dictate the fight against individual groups of bad actors and not frame the conflict against a religion as a whole, as to not alienate millions of Muslims and perhaps make jihadi propaganda more attractive – a critically important nuance that Donald Trump will gleefully ignore in his rush to prove his “strength.”

Given the number of Islamophobic attacks that have taken place in the United States since Donald Trump was elected, it’s hard to argue with them. Donald Trump’s election has been a huge victory for jihadis and for crackpot dictators across the world, and we’ll be paying the price for it for years to come. Trump is a danger to our national security, and he’s proved it on day one.
