US lawmaker says Al-Qaeda will celebrate if Obama wins

 WASHINGTON: A Republican Congressman suggested, in an interview published on Saturday, that the election of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will mean a victory for Al-Qaeda and other radical Islamists.

"I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then ... the Al-Qaeda, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11 because they will declare victory in this war on terror," Representative Steve King of Iowa told the Daily Reporter newspaper.

The paper is published in Spencer, Iowa, which is King's home district.

King went on to say that even Obama's middle name, which is Hussein, will have a special meaning for radical Islamists.

"They will be dancing in the streets because of his middle name," King continued.

"They will be dancing in the streets because of who his father was and because of his posture that says: 'Pull out of the Middle East and pull out of this conflict'."

Obama, who never supported a US congressional resolution authorising the US invasion of Iraq, is favouring US troop withdrawal from the country.
