The Poor Lost Soul that is Abu Musab al Zarqawi

CNN: Purported al-Zarqawi tape: Democracy a lie -- An Internet recording claiming to be from wanted terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi condemned democracy as "the big American lie" on Sunday and said participants in Iraq's January 30 election are enemies of Islam.
"We have declared a bitter war against democracy and all those who seek to enact it," said the speaker in the 35-minute message. "Democracy is also based on the right to choose your religion," he said, and that is "against the rule of God." "We declared war against, and whoever helps promote this and all those candidates, as well as the voters, are also part of this, and are considered enemies of God," the tape said.
Can one misunderstand God more than this? I suspect not.
