MEMRI: Bin Laden Makes Promise in Advance to Accept and Uphold A Long-Term Truce
MEMRI ^ | 1/20/05 | MEMRI

Posted on 01/20/2006 8:08:18 PM PST by dervish

On January 19, 2006, Al-Jazeera TV broadcast excerpts from a new audiocassette by Osama bin Laden, in which the Al-Qaeda leader threatens further attacks on the U.S., "immediately with the completion of the preparations.”

At the same time, bin Laden makes a plea to accept and uphold a long term truce under fair conditions [if America offers it to him], which will provide security and stability to both sides and will make it possible to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan. "We are a nation forbidden by Allah to betray and lie," promises bin Laden.

Contrary to mistranslations in the media, from Al-Jazeera for example, [1] bin Laden did not offer a truce, but made a plea to genuinely uphold one if America offers it to him.

Tomorrow, the subtitled clip will be available on www.memritv.org .

The following are excerpts from bin Laden's statements on the audiocassette:

"My letter to you refers to the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan, and how to bring about its end. I did not intend to talk with you about this subject because for us, it's a closed matter. Only iron can defeat iron. Our situation, Allah be praised, is improving, while your situation is the opposite, but what brought me to speak are the repeated words of deceit by your president Bush, in his interpretation of the results of public opinion polls amongst you, which showed that the overwhelming majority of your public seeks to withdraw the forces from Iraq - but [Bush] opposed this and said that withdrawing the forces will convey the wrong message to the adversaries, and that it is preferable that we fight them on their soil rather than they fight us on our soil.

"I have an answer to these words of deceit, as follows: The war in Iraq is combusting without cessation, and the [military] operations in Afghanistan are in constant escalation in our favor, Allah be praised, and the Pentagon's numbers indicate an ongoing rise in the number of your killed and wounded, in addition to the huge material damage."

[...]

"... I say that the poll results please those of you who are wise, and that Bush's rejection of the results is a mistake, and that reality shows that the war against America and its allies has not remained limited to Iraq, as Bush claims, but rather Iraq has become a source of attraction and recruitment of qualified forces. On the other hand, the mujahidoun have, with Allah's help, succeeded time after time in breaking through all security measures taken by all the oppressing coalition countries. Evidence of this is the explosions you have witnessed in the capitals of the most important European countries that are members of this hostile coalition. Any delay in similar operations in America does not stem from lack of ability to break through your security measures. The operations are in the stages of preparation, and you will yet see them, in the heart of your homes, immediately with the completion of the preparations, with Allah's help."

[...]

"Based on the above, it can be clearly seen that Bush's words are false, but what he refrained from saying - and this is the essence of the poll results, which favor troop withdrawal - is that it is better that we do not fight the Muslims on their soil, and they will not fight us on our soil.

"We have no objection to accepting a long-term cease fire under fair conditions which we will uphold. We are a nation forbidden by Allah to betray and lie. Both sides will benefit from such a cease fire, from security and stability, and we will build Iraq and Afghanistan which have been destroyed in the war. There is nothing wrong with this solution, except that it will prevent the flow of hundreds of billions [dollars] to influential individuals and to the merchants of war in America who supported Bush's election with billions of dollars."

It`s a 'Hudna'.A Hudna is only a timeout in order to rest and replenish your logistics and men.

And muslims are allowed to lie to infidels.

Is Bin Ladin writing the democrats talking points or perhaps they are writing his. It is very hard to tell. Maybe it is a collaborative effort?

Has anybody seen Paul Begala and James Carville lately? Perhaps they are doing some freelance work in the middle east.

""We are a nation forbidden by Allah to betray and lie," promises bin Laden.""

---Bin Laden, You suck goat d*ck! Tell that to the thousands of innocent people that died on 9/11. You lied and betrayed an entire world, even your fellow muslims that you blow up everyday with suicide bombers, killing anyone you can while you hide in a cave. Grrrrrrr!!!

"immediately with the completion of the preparations.”

I'd say that's true of just about every action ever taken by anyone.

Offer up a truce aka regroup and prep for another attack.
Also, we had him in Tora Bora until we fell for his offer of a truce. Which allowed his escape and regroup...

To Bin Haden, President Bush has the river card coming, you are holding two of a kind, and Mr. Bush already has a straight flush.

Don't bet against our President.

I sure wouldn't, he has a poker face, a benevolent nature, and a rigid adherence to principle and the protection of the USA.

Bring it on you impotent Jihad goat phucker.

Has Osama registered a PAC yet? If not, was he allowed to do that Kerry infomercial the Friday before the 2004 election?

Looks like he'll have FEC and IRS charges tacked on to his voluminous charge sheet.

Rush speculates that both apparently await a catharsis to purge the Democratic body politic of its inner rabid batty kooks.

Makes sense. I agree with the idea floating around that the Dems are going to try to find a third-party 2008 'Perot' to split the Republican and Independant vote. How else do you explain the extreme leftist chatter polluting the airwaves lately?

I can just see it- a folksy liberal hack rich guy doing infomericals with charts on his laptop and stats on his blackberry.

Hillary 40% Republican 37% Third Party leftist hack guy 23%

Well he's lying right there. They are permitted to lie to infidels, as long as it's for the greater glory of Allah.

We ain't buying it Osama Obama.

Democrats seem fairly insane these days. If you define insanity as doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome it seems plausible for the Democrats to run yet another liberal Northeastern Senator for President.

If he's willing to accept a truce, then

Ah yes, the hudna.

(A temporary truce so they can rebuild and regroup.)

Guess what?

We're not buying your bill of goods, Osama. However we do have a present for you, all wrapped in nice red, white, and blue paper. Unfortunately, it will be a bit dicey to unwrap ... without blowing yourself to hell.

Have fun.

Bin Laden spoke too soon. Pelosi, Boxer, Murtha, Kennedy, Kerry and Durbin haven't yet signed on to his idea of a truce, and could continue fighting against America without him.

With these words, can anyone doubt any longer that Bin Laden's perceived path to victory is by way of the defeatist, cut-and-run, unilateral, failure-embracing tactics of the Democratic party and its moonbat corrupters?
