OSAMA BIN LADEN: "Abandon Your Follies And Rein In Your Fools"
Oct 19, 2003

"This is a message from Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden to the American people regarding your aggression in Iraq.

Peace be upon those who follow the righteous path.

Some have the impression that you are a reasonable people. But the majority of you are vulgar and without sound ethics or good manners. You elect the evil from among you, the greatest liars and the least decent and you are enslaved by your richest and the most influential among you, especially the Jews, who lead you using the lie of democracy to support the Israelis and their schemes and in complete antagonism towards our religion (Islam).

These schemes are paid for in our blood and land, and your blood and economy. This has been proven by recent events. And the war on Iraq, which has nothing to do with you, is proof of that.

Bush and his gang, with their heavy sticks and hard hearts, are an evil to all humankind. They have stabbed into the truth, until they have killed it altogether in the eyes of the world. With this behaviour they have encouraged hypocrisy, and spread vice and political bribes shamelessly at the level of heads of state.

This gang and their leader enjoy lying, war and looting to serve their own ambitions. The blood of the children of Vietnam, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq is still dripping from their teeth. They have fooled you and deceived you into invading Iraq a second time. And they have lied to you and the whole world.

Nations are nothing without ethics and morals. If these are gone, the nations are gone.

Bush has sent your sons into the lion’s den, to slaughter and be slaughtered, claiming that this act was in defence of international peace and America’s security, thus concealing the facts.

On one hand he (Bush) is carrying out the demands of the Zionist lobby that helped him to enter the White House. These demands are to destroy the military strength of Iraq because it is too close to the Jews in occupied Palestine, regardless of the harm that will happen to your people and your economy.

On the other hand, he (Bush) is concealing his own ambitions and the ambitions of the Zionist lobby and their own desire for oil. He is still following the mentality of his ancestors who killed the Native Americans to take their land and wealth. He thought that this time it would be an easy task and a lie that would not be exposed.

But God sent him to Baghdad, the seat of the Caliphate, the homeland of people who prefer death to honey. So they (the Iraqis) turned his profits into losses, his joy into sadness and now he is merely looking for a way back home. Thanks be to God Almighty who has exposed the lies of George Bush and made his term as president a term of continual catastrophe.

To Bush I say, you are begging the world to come to your aid, begging mercenaries from every corner of the world, even from small states. This begging has destroyed your pride and revealed how trivial and weak you are after claiming to defend the whole world. Now you are like the knight who was trying to protect people from the Sword of Malik, and ended up begging someone to protect him.

We reserve the right to retaliate at the appropriate time and place against all countries involved, especially the UK, Spain, Australia, Poland, Japan and Italy, not to exclude those Muslim states that took part, especially the Gulf states, and in particular Kuwait, which has become a beachhead for the crusading forces.

And to the American soldiers in Iraq I say, now that all the lies have been exposed and the greatest liar has been revealed, your stay on Iraq’s land is compounding the oppression and is a great folly. It shows you are selling your lives for the lives of others. And you are spilling your blood to swell the bank accounts of the White House gang and their fellow arms dealers and the proprietors of great companies. And the greatest folly in life is to sell your life for the lives of others.

In conclusion, I say to the American people we will continue to fight you and continue to conduct martyrdom operations inside and outside the United States until you depart from your oppressive course and abandon your follies and rein in your fools.

You have to know that we are counting our dead, may God bless them, especially in Palestine, who are killed by your allies the Jews. We are going to take revenge for them from your blood, God willing, as we did on the day of New York. Remember what I said to you on that day about our security and your security. Baghdad, the seat of the Caliphate, will not fall to you, God willing, and we will fight you as long as we carry our guns. And if we fall, our sons will take our place.

And may our mothers become childless if we leave any of you alive on our soil."

Osama bin Laden
Saturday 22, Shaaban 1424

Osama has better speechwriters than the DNC does...of about the same level of evil, but more competent at it.

He's got a problem with GW, but no problem with Saddam who murdered his own people. That's the thing about these Muslims, they don't mind their own people being oppressed, but God help anybody coming in from the outside to liberate them. What a vile snake. V's wife.

Dear Binny,

Received your latest; see you must not have gotten the memo. That's understandable.

You had to leave home a bit of a hurry, then the cave got destroyed along with so many of your lackeys and there was that donkey ride over the mountains, the tents and constant moving, the arm injury and the kidney problem, your buddies are ratting on you and disappearing daily; you can't trust anyone, you can't move around and you've had a bit of trouble getting mail and talking on the phone of late.

So, we understand – you missed the memo:

You're fighting soldiers now, not defenseless civilians. Bush is OUR president. Baghdad DID fall. Your bullsh*t quit working at 10 AM over Pittsburgh with the words "let's roll."

Signed,

America

Well, at least one person is hanging on every slurred word from the mouth of Ted Kennedy.

I hope you're right. Time will tell if the American people will stay the course. The history of recent decades is not too encouraging, unfortunately. As a people, we tend to have short historical memories, and be easily distracted by "the latest thing" - - -which is no longer the events of 9/11/01. Our enemies are aware of that tendency, and are poised to take full advantage of it whenever possible.

Following is the full text of the Malaysian Prime Minister's recent speech:
http://www.yourish.com/archives/2003/mahathir.html
Speech by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the opening of the 10th Session of the Islamic Summit
Conference on Oct 16, 2003

This speech is a suitable introduction to the following link to an interesting analysis of the prospects of Islam, especially given that it was written in 1936 when the main European focus of attention was on the rising tide of European and Asian totalitarian states founded on militantly secular or pagan religious principles, rather than on the seemingly improbable revival if Islam.

(Note: it's author, Hillaire Belloc and the Malaysian prime minister would probably agree on few things except, as a careful reading will show, on a belief in the pervasive influence of Jews. They also, for different reasons -- adherence to different world-conquering visions, in particular -- find that influence repugnant. Still, those of us who see the impact as mostly a positive factor in world history can learn from both of these pieces.)

Belloc usefully notes how heavily Islamic military, diplomatic, and economic pressure from the south and east influenced European history from the final fall of Byzantium in 1453 to the end of the 17th century, and how its recession in the following two centuries set the stage for Europe's self-destructive global wars in the 20th century, which have themselves set the stage for the "next acts" in coming decades. It then concludes with some speculations on the potential for Islam to resume its expanive development. Pretty good foresight for an analyst almost 70 years ago, in the midst of the runup to round two of the global war!

"...we will fight you as long as we carry our guns. And if we fall, our sons will take our place."

hrmn... well, now.
Talk like that only gives ammunition to those who would truly like to see all the 1 billion muslims alive today... cease being so.
The ranks of those who hold such a view are steadily growing.
If Usama really cared about the Ummah, he'd be well advised to take a major dose of STFU.

We've got 'em on the run, boys! This propoganda piece is filled with hateful desperation, not unlike the same vitriol coming from the leaderless DNC an its minions. I can just see that little group of Bin Laden wannabes splicing audio tape in a frenzy with tears in their eyes over their idol who now eternally sleeps with the geology of Tora Bora.

First, American Jews vote for democrats, not Republicans. Second, there's no land or wealth exchange happening. Bush is putting an end to torture chambers and rape rooms, maybe that's Osama's real beef.

"On one hand he (Bush) is carrying out the demands of the Zionist lobby that helped him to enter the White House.... He is still following the mentality of his ancestors who killed the Native Americans to take their land and wealth."
