A Very Special July 4th Commentary

I don't know how he did it, but Iowahawk has managed to obtain a holiday message from Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.
Americans are famous for their diversity, and nowhere is this diversity more on display than in the various ways we celebrate the Fourth of July. Whether you are a traditional infidel enjoying hot dogs and cold watermelon, a recent immigrant infidel celebrating your new citizenship with a colorful piñata full of sweet treats, or like me, a not-as-yet-arrived-there-American who celebrates our independence through videotaped beheadings, we Americans have an almost infinite variety of ways of ‘lighting up the Fourth.’
Update: Some people are offended by Iowahawk. Hey, it's called satire. If it gets you so worked up, that speaks volumes about you. You're doing a good job at alienating moderates, and pushing them towards the Republicans that you hate so much.

Update II: Al-Zarqawi responds.
