Pakistani Taliban Emir By'atullah Mahsoud: We Will Destroy America and Britain, But Won't Use Nuclear Bombs
Following are excerpts from an interview with By'atullah Mahsoud, the Emir of the Pakistani Taliban, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on January 25, 2008. Throughout the interview, the assassination of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was not mentioned, and it seems the interview was recorded earlier.

"Musharraf is Merely the Slave of Bush, the West, and the Infidels"
Interviewer: "Did you pledge allegiance to Mullah Omar?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "We pledged allegiance to the Emir of the Believers in the past, and Allah willing, our allegiance to him will continue infinitely. He is our religious Emir, and our allegiance to him stems from the love and respect we have for him."
Interviewer: "What do you hope to achieve by this coalition? What are your goals? What are your plans for the future?"
By'atullah Mahsoud:"The goal of our coalition is to conduct defensive jihad. The Pakistani army is induced by Bush to send its forces here, and it bombs our homes and fights us. Therefore, we established this coalition in order to provide security to Muslim individuals and Muslim society. The Pakistani army employs tactics of deceit. It wages war in South Waziristan, while it maintains a truce in North Waziristan. Then it wages war in North Waziristan, and maintains a truce in Bajaur. Then it wages war in Bajaur, and maintains a truce in Swat. This is a policy of deceit. We established this coalition in order to confront the deceit of the army and its soldiers attacks.
"Musharraf is merely the slave of Bush, the West, and the infidels. Musharraf is subjugated to his masters. The Muslims in the tribal regions have suffered greatly at his hands, while our Arab and non-Arab brothers who have come here in order to defend Islam and the people, and in order to protect Pakistan - Musharraf has declared war against them, at the direct command of Bush. Some of them have been martyred, and others have been handed over to the Americans. All this did not satisfy Musharraf, who attacked the mosques, killing women, children, and youth inside. His motivation in doing this was to please Bush. We say that Musharraf persecuted the Muslims, demonstrated injustice towards them, and destroyed mosques."
"The Pure Land of Pakistan Does Not Tolerate Traitors; They Must Flee to America and Live There"
"Our response will be more bitter than his deeds. We will teach him a lesson that will be recorded in the pages of history in letters of gold. The crimes of these murderers, who were acting at Bush's command, are unforgivable. Soon, we will take vengeance upon them for destroying the mosques. The pure land of Pakistan does not tolerate traitors. They must flee to America and live there. Here, Musharraf will live to regret his injustice towards the students of the Red Mosque. Allah willing, Musharraf will suffer great pain, along with all his aides. The Muslims will never forgive Musharraf for the sin he committed."
Interviewer: "How are you connected to the Imam of the Red Mosque, Mullah Abd Al-Aziz?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "Mullah Abd Al-Aziz is a faithful mujahid and scholar. Mujahideen like him are very rare. Prior to the current war, I did not have any connection with him. But when the war broke out, it was like what is said in the hadith: 'All Muslims are brothers.' Mullah Abd Al-Aziz is now languishing in prison, and this is painful to us. The brotherhood of Islam is what ties us to him. Allah willing, we will not abandon Mullah Abd Al-Aziz, and we will sacrifice our souls and our property for the sake of his liberation.
"Above all, we are Muslims, Allah be praised. Islam does not allow us to kill women and children. Using a nuclear bomb leads to the killing of children, women, the weak, and the elderly. We cannot kill all these people, and so we do not think about using a nuclear bomb.
"America, in contrast, commits crimes, and oppresses and persecutes others. America killed innocent people in Japan. What crime did the weak and the women in Japan commit that made America kill them, when it dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Washington did not care about the women and the elderly who died. We now fear that America will use a nuclear bomb against the Muslims, just like it did against the Japanese. We fear the American bomb, but not the Pakistani bomb. At least the Pakistani bomb is in the hands of Muslims. We pray to Allah that the Muslims will take over all the nuclear bombs from the infidels, whose hands are soiled with the blood of the innocent.
"All Muslims are brothers. The Taliban have the Emir of the Believers. He is not only the Emir of the Afghani people, but the Emir of the Believers throughout the world. We pledged allegiance to him, and we have the strongest ties with him. We consider Muslims - even in America - to be our brothers. With regard to Al-Qaeda, they are Muslims, and the Islamic zeal that runs in their veins is very rare. Al-Qaeda has fought heresy head-on, and confronted it with their weapons. They are our brothers, and Allah willing, we will remain brothers, and we will serve them, even if they ask us to sacrifice our heads for their sakes."
"I Have the Utmost Love and Respect For [bin Laden and Al-Zawahiri], Because of their Enmity towards the Jews and the Christians"
Interviewer: "Have you ever had any connection with Al-Zarqawi, Al-Zahawiri, or bin Laden?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "Before Al-Zarqawi left for Iraq, he was in our region with us. We had strong relations with him. After America began committing injustice in Iraq, he went over there, and he had an extraordinary role. With regard to Osama and Al-Zawahiri, I never met them, but I have the utmost love and respect for them, because of their enmity towards the Jews and the Christians. The Muslims must be harsh towards the infidels and compassionate among themselves. These two men reflect this Koranic verse. Their enmity towards the Jews and the Christians is strong, and therefore, I respect them.
"We Muslims are united, and we will wage jihad in Afghanistan and in Pakistan. We will fight jihad in Palestine, Bosnia, and Iraq as well. This is our religious duty, and in Islam, there is no text that says that a certain place is Pakistan, and another place is Afghanistan. There are no borders in Islam. We fight the Jews and the Christians in Afghanistan out of ideological motives."
Interviewer: "Did you send your fighters to Afghanistan to participate in battle alongside the Taliban?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "We fought alongside the Taliban, and we will continue to do so full force. The enemies have come from distant places. They have come from many Western countries, for the sake of money, and they kill for the sake of money. We, on the other hand, are Muslims. Our goal is to please our God and to raise the banner of monotheism. Yes, we send and will continue to send young men to the battlefronts in Afghanistan."
Interviewer: "In practice, where do you get your money from? Are there countries or businessmen who support you? Who supports you?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "Most of our funding comes from our fighting with the enemy. After every battle, we collect a lot of booty. With the help of this booty, we fight the enemy again, and so on. We dont even know how some of the money reaches us or who donated it. According to our principles and our resolutions, we cannot accept donations from an infidel."
"We pray that Allah will enable us to destroy the White House, New York, and London"
Interviewer:"Are you sad when you fight or kill Pakistani soldiers? Can the soldiers of the Pakistani army become your friends in the future?"
By'atullah Mahsoud: "We are by no means sorry when we kill them. They carry out the orders of the West and America, and destroy our homes. That is why we kill them, although I pray that Allah will guide them, because Pakistan is an Islamic country. But when the army soldiers come here to fight us, we will kill them, because the presence of the army and its soldiers here is in response to the orders of the infidels and Bush.
"We want to eradicate Britain and America, and to shatter the arrogance and tyranny of the infidels. We pray that Allah will enable us to destroy the White House, New York, and London. We place our trust in Allah. Soon, we will witness the miracles of jihad. I myself have experienced many miracles. Every time I was determined to do something, I prayed to Allah, and he made it possible. Our jihad is defensive jihad. Our determination is great, and it is directly entirely against Britain and America. The soldiers of heresy who have come here to oppress the Muslims - we will respond to their injustice and tyranny. One of the miracles of jihad will be that sooner or later, we will destroy their countries."
>>Above all, we are Muslims, Allah be praised. Islam does not allow us to kill women and children. <<
Does that mean he’s voting for Hillary?
He forgot to pray for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. I guess that only plays well in Vermont. ;-)
>>”We are by no means sorry when we kill them. They carry out the orders of the West and America, and destroy our homes.”<<
This was true on 9/10/2001, and is true today. Islam must die or our entire civilization will. There is no room for negotiation.
Remind me again who the clerics brainwash into strapping bombs to themselves.
They murder women AND children. They lie. Our leaders ... grovel.

================= EXHIBIT 8 ================
Russia, at Beslan, with children murdered by Islamic terrorists.
My friend was just over in the Midlands off the A14. The housings slump is really bad over there. Everyone is broke and the credit card debt is double the United States. England is sinking fast after all these years of Tony B. and the labor party.
My words couldn’t have said it better.
I guess Israeli women and children don’t count either.
He is getting close as the left gets more and more power along with destroying the Constitution and giving the courts the greatest power over us all which the Constitution never intended. Since the congress says they have oversight of the executive why do they not have oversight of the Courts?
In the long run, their women and children count.
The rest of us are either dogs or pigs.
Above all, we are Muslims, Allah be praised. Islam does not allow us to kill women and children.
Beslan.... Heck, muslim and arab terrorists have a VERY LONG history of murdering (not just blowing up randomly, but actually seeking out and MURDERING) women and children. They've attacked schools, sleeping children in nurseries, and even murdered a pregnant woman and her children while they were trapped in a car, strapped into their seats.
As with anything else uttered by these creatures, any lie (and any reprehensible act) is acceptable if it helps their plans.
The Islamic world would be in a world of hurt if “theoretically” an off planet species decided that the religion of Islam was about to doom its favorite planet of “pets” and science experiments.
Cutting the innuendo UFO’s are going to attack Muslims and will save the planet.
Sometimes I enjoy some real off the wall speculation.
1) The women and children are not real Muslims. (It's OK to kill the Infidels.)
2) The people doing it aren't real Muslims. (Oh, they SAY they are...)
3) It is OK to lie to the Infidels.
4) All Muslims are either kill crazy as blank-house rats, or else are complicit in excusing murder done by their fellows.
For that matter, considering the "allah" character allows his followers to be beaten, mutilated, gutted, sliced, burned, beheaded, behanded, belegged, scourged, violated and set on fire, not to mention starved, trampled in "holy pilgrimages" that seem to happen every other week, oppressed by their royalty, ordered about by their Imans, and told that it is glorious to let their children be blown up as long as it hurts the Infidels, you would think they would stop praising him so much.
