Late Democratic Endorsements

Just a few I missed during the week.

From Palestinian terrorist leaders:

"Of course Americans should vote Democrat," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, told WND.

"This is why American Muslims will support the Democrats, because there is an atmosphere in America that encourages those who want to withdraw from Iraq. It is time that the American people support those who want to take them out of this Iraqi mud," said Jaara, speaking to WND from exile in Ireland, where he was sent as part of an internationally brokered deal that ended the church siege.

Islamic jihad:

Muhammad Saadi, a senior leader of Islamic Jihad in the northern West Bank town of Jenin, said the Democrats' talk of withdrawal from Iraq makes him feel "proud."

"As Arabs and Muslims we feel proud of this talk," he told WND. "Very proud from the great successes of the Iraqi resistance. This success that brought the big superpower of the world to discuss a possible withdrawal."

Hamas:

Abu Abdullah, a leader of Hamas' military wing in the Gaza Strip, said the policy of withdrawal "proves the strategy of the resistance is the right strategy against the occupation."

"We warned the Americans that this will be their end in Iraq," said Abu Abdullah, considered one of the most important operational members of Hamas' Izzedine al-Qassam Martyrs Brigades, Hamas' declared "resistance" department.

"They did not succeed in stealing Iraq's oil, at least not at a level that covers their huge expenses. They did not bring stability. Their agents in the (Iraqi) regime seem to have no chance to survive if the Americans withdraw."

An Iranian cleric, as described by Allah:

Don’t confuse this guy with the other Khatami. The man in the video is Ahmad Khatami, a “hardline” cleric and strong proponent of the country’s nuclear program. Mohammed Khatami is the “moderate” former president of Iran who was last seen praising Bill Clinton and urging an immediate pullout from Iraq and who told an audience at Harvard earlier this year that it’s “debatable” whether gays should be executed.

Distinctions are important.

Watch the video.

And, last but not least, the coveted shout-out from Nasrallah.

Okay, the Nasrallah one isn't explicitly for Dems, but it's a hearty endorsement of the Dems' strategy on Iraq.

It's no wonder they're so enthusiastic about a Nutroots-led Democratic Party:

Wow. GOTV in Connecticut and Montana. These Kos Kidz are pushing the Dem candidates in those states.  

H/t LGF on that video.

Update: Creepy video. Watch it and remember what the guys above have in store for us if we don't do our best to stop them.
