I just recently mentioned that there was a banner ad running that stated Osama Bin Laden would be releasing a new message and sure enough Al Qaeda release an audio message purporting to be from Bin Laden earlier today.
The portion of the message in the Youtube Video below is about ten minutes.
According to the Global Times he says:
“”We will continue, God permitting, the fight against the Israelis and their allies … and will not give up a single inch of Palestine as long as there is one true Muslim on earth,” he said in the message, posted on an Islamist website on Friday. “This is evidence that Palestine is our land, and the Israelis are invaders and occupiers who should be fought,” he said referring to Israel’s 60th anniversary. “The participation of Western leaders with the Jews in this celebration confirms that the West backs this Jewish occupation of our land, and that they stand in the Israeli corner against us,” he said. “They proved this in practice by sending their forces to southern Lebanon.””
One commenter at The Global Times (the only one) asked the question:
Why is everyone so afraid of this Great lion sheikh Osama bin Laden? This man is hiding deep in a dark cave. Why do Bush and Cheney and the Great lion Sheikh Osama Bin Laden want everyone to be very afraid? Come on people use your common sense why are you taking orders from someone hiding deep inside a dark cave. What kind of drugs you people on?
Really that’s more than one question. The fact is we should be very afraid of Osama Bin Laden as well as the rest of the Islamic extremists until we have wiped them off the face of the earth. We are in the midst of a holy war and unless we are watchful they will hit us again.
The other question, about Bush and Cheney wanting everyone to be afraid is easy to answer. Government wants to control you and the greatest things that politicians like Bush, Cheney, Clinton and Obama want is to control as much of or lives as humanly possible. As long as we keep voting these guys in to power they are going to keep assuming it’s OK with us. Democrat and Republican alike they are all about big government and big spending.
