CAIRO, Egypt — Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites. The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies.

Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect _ along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice _ "house Negroes."
Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house Negroes." (More...)

Terror’s teeth
lunges for the leather whip that cracks
the tense and shackled light

We’ve enough of that, screeches the slave
Feared enough, roars the wounded slave
Pity you’re caged by your own foul tongue

Captured by your will to stir darkness
Spent of courage that would mock a fair beast
Sending what’s been dead for what hasn’t lived

What should we do with you, cries the slave
When shall we begin, shouts the bold slave
What shall we do with my fear, shrieks the master

Terror’s teeth
pierces the sheath that houses the whip
and sets free its trembling
