The world of bin Laden: no drinks, no gambling, no pictures of women
By Francis Harris in Washington
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".

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.

Bin-Laden-Stan... The Anti-Vegas.
What happens in BLS, stays in BLS - because the infidels will die here like the slimey swine they are.
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.
The headline reads like the rules the military must follow in the Middle East....
For more go here and enter the word "prohibit" as a search on the top right.
Damn.. they're much sicker than I ever imagined.
I would think that the title alone would be enough for guys to throw PC and sorrow out the window.
That site is awesome. It's everything that's wrong with Islam out in the open.
I found that site on 9/12 and have linked to it many times. Some people think it's a joke site at first.
Could a RAT really adapt to this "lifestyle"? Ha, I doubt if most Baptist could!
No beer? What kind of monster is this guy..does his depravity have no end?
There goes Saturday night....
"It is not permissible to whistle through ones 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...
