The world of bin Laden: no drinks, no gambling, no pictures of women

By Francis Harris in Washington
(Filed: 17/11/2005)

Osama bin Laden wants the United States to convert to Islam, ditch its constitution, abolish banks, jail homosexuals and sign the Kyoto climate change treaty.

The first complete collection of the Saudi's statements published today portrays a world in which Islam's enemies will take the first steps towards salvation by embracing the "religion of all the Prophets".

Osama bin Laden

Messages to the World: The Statements of Osama bin Laden is billed as the first accurate compendium of the terrorist leader's words, threats and ruminations from 1994 to 2004.

Its editors have rooted out many statements which they identified as forgeries and retranslated to correct "horrendous" errors.

His terms for America's surrender appeared after the September 2001 suicide attacks and include demands that amount to the abandonment of much of western life.

Alcohol and gambling would be barred and there would be an end to women's photos in newspapers or advertising.

Any woman serving "passengers, visitors and strangers", presumably anyone from air stewardesses to waitresses, would also be out of a job.

The West must "stop your oppression, lies, immorality and debauchery that has spread among you" and has become the "worst civilisation witnessed in the history of mankind".

The publisher Verso said it expected criticism for releasing the thoughts of a terrorist but denied that the volume would be the jihadis' equivalent of Mein Kampf.

According to Gavin Browning at Verso, disapproval "is something that we're anticipating".

"The idea is to have an annotated, scholarly collection of bin Laden's words," he added. "Until now, his words have only been available in poor translations or soundbites."

Mr Browning emphasised that publishing his views did not imply any approval of them by the publishers.

The book's introduction is written by Prof Bruce Lawrence who teaches Islamic studies at Duke University, North Carolina and describes the terrorist as "one of the best prose writers in Arabic".

Many past translations of the words of the head of al-Qa'eda have been "horrendous" and often wrong, he said.

In the book the terrorist responsible for the deaths of 3,000 civilians in September 2001 says that killing the innocent is wrong. In bin Laden's world a global conflict is under way between the umma, or Muslim community, and unbelievers.

Obviously. But what's not as well known is that the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants the exact same thing, and works tirelessly toward this end. .....yet they're given respect by countless American politicans.

No wearing of gold, no wiping your butt with the wrong hand, no this, no that, etc. Oh, and no music. Islam prohibits every type of musical instrument or music.

For more go here and enter the word "prohibit" as a search on the top right.

"It is not permissible to whistle through one’s mouth or an instrument. However, if there is a dire need, for example, to call out at a distant person or a lost person and there is no alternative, then one will be excused. "

What the hell kind of insanity...

They are so bogged down with man-made rules... no wonder they don't have any idea what real freedom is. They think all this rule keeping will earn them the right to heaven. And the pure silliness of it. Just today I read where Allah urinated in some subject ears while he was sleeping.... truly weird.

Bin Laden on:

The Telegraph (UK)
(Filed: 17/11/2005)

The rest of the world:

Every Muslim hates Americans, hates Jews and hates Christians.

Britain and America's allies: How long will fear, killing, destruction, displacement, orphaning and widowing be our sole destiny, while security, stability and happiness is yours? Just as you bomb, so shall you be bombed.

Nuclear weapons: There is a duty on Muslims to acquire them.

Killing civilians and Muslims on Sept 11: Islamic law says that Muslims should not stay long in the land of the infidels.

The targets of Sept 11 were not women and children. The main targets were the symbol of the US - their economic and military power.

Muslim scholars who call him sacrilegious: No official scholar's judicial decrees have any value as far as I'm concerned.

A bin Laden poem:

I shall lead my steed,
and hurl us both at the target,
Oh Lord if my end is nigh,
may my tomb not be draped,
in green mantles.

BANNU, Pakistan (CNN) -- A Pakistani businessman denied Monday a report in Time magazine that implies he had a homosexual affair with John Walker Lindh, the American who joined the Taliban...

According to More Women Soldiers Demanded from Chosun Ilbo, Col Kim Hwa-sook, retired, expressed hope that Korea, like Israel, would make military services compulsory for women.
