Kiryas Joel and Al Qaeda: Strange Bedfellows?


I posted here and here about the Hassidic upstate village of Kiryas Joel, and how their voting as a block helped influence last week's election. Well, it looks like a local business owner felt like buying into the oft-repeated GOP canard that the Democrats support/encourage terrorism. This local lumber yard owner's opinion on the subject of GOP Representative Sue Kelly losing to her opponent John Hall, a Democrat, is very clear from the sign he put out front of his store:
CONGRATS
AL-QAEDA
AND KJ
Isn't that sweet?

Via Ben Smith, of course.

What's the outrage? Al-Qaeda did support the Democrats.

Al-Qaeda, Iran, China, North Korea, etc. are all publicly happy and calling for the new Congress when it gets into control to appease them.

Seems to me that his political sentiments are (at least on their face) correct.

I’m a registered republican so are a lot of people in KJ, do you remember the riots in KJ a few years ago?, remember the corruption of the police when there was no police available to help out the dissidence, broken windows, stone throwing, all this where going on daily and there where no one to help us? Who was in charge then??? The republicans! Remember the corruption at KJ vilage election?? How did it all relatively stop??? When we aligned with the democrats!!! You see? For us not to vote for democrats is the same appeasement and even more so then the democrat’s appeasement toward al Qaeda

Its interesting to note that ORTHOMOM never writes anything bad about Yeshiva University or its machers. I can unferstand why people in the haredi/Aguda/Yeshiva world are skeptical about (her)bias. I can't recall one article about YU/OU/RCA scandal.
