Text of Bin Laden Speech

I just finished typing it in.

I’ve seen an image of the text in some places, and partial transcripts in others, but the image is hard to quote or to fisk. This speech begs for fisking, close analysis and fact correction, and for comparing different passages to the statements of different anti-war figures like Noam “Terrorist Buddy” Chomsky, Cindy “Smoothie Diet” Sheehan, “Dingy” Harry Reid, Michael “Sicko” Moore, Nancy “Blinky” Pelosi, John “Lurch” Kerry, and the sonorous retard himself, Keith “4th place in his timeslot” Olbermaniac.

The text seems as if it was written in English and translated to Arabic. It would be useful to find out where Bin Laden and Jewish convert Adam Gadahn got the language for this speech, which hits every single leftist and socialist argument (except Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, which have already been used several times) against the Global Counterjihad, and also appeals to Republicans by promising tax cuts under Islamic governance. The scattershot style actually sounds desperate, as if he would say anything to get the US to stop fighting and leave him alone. I think he realizes that Al Qaeda is beaten in Afghanistan and Iraq, and this is a last ditch effort to stop the systematic dismantling of Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. And there is one other thing that reinforces this analysis, this feeling, that I get from the words. Look at the pictures of Bin Laden in 2004 and 2007. As Robert Spencer notes, if Osama Bin Laden has dyed his hair and beard black, it means he is preparing to fight and kill or be killed in Jihad for the sake of Allah. He is preparing to physically fight, which he has not yet done in Al Qaeda’s Global Jihad, preferring to direct his doomed minions from a safe area in the rear. He has taken the coward’s path until now. But for this video he has dyed his hair and beard black as Blackbeard the Pirate. It would seem that he is preparing some last ditch spectacular attack, with the hope being that it will change the momentum of the battles in Iraq or Afghanistan and give his Jihadist followers and allies breathing room. He might even have some kind of spectacular suicide attack using WMDs in mind, and might even sacrifice his own life for the cause.

This is if Bin Laden is alive. It is very possible that he is dead and his spectre is being used to distract attention away from living Jihadists. Omar al Baghdadi, the ostensible Iraqi head of Al Qaeda in Iraq, is a fictional character. If Al Qaeda uses a fictional character as a figurehead for one of their organizations it is no great leap to think they might use a dead man as a figurehead for another one. It is as if NATO claimed that Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, and Napoleon were secretly directing global Counterjihad plans.

Have at it. All I ask is that you link back to where you got it.

 


All praise is due to Allah, who built the heavens and earth in justice, and created man as a favor and grace from Him. And from His ways is that the days rotate between the people, and from His Law is retaliation in kind: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and the killer is killed. And all praise is due to Allah, who awakened His slaves’ desire for the Garden, and all of them will enter it except those who refuse. And whoever obeys Him alone in all of his affairs will enter the Garden, and whoever disobeys Him will have refused.As for what comes after: Peace be upon he who follows the Guidance. People of America: I shall be speaking to you on important topics which concern you, so lend me your ears. I begin by discussing the war which is between us and some of its repercussions for us and you.To preface, I say: despite America being the greatest economic power and possessing the most powerful and up-to-date military arsenal as well; and despite it spending on this war and its army more than the entire world spends on its armies; and despite it being the major state influencing the policies of the world, as if it has a monopoly on the unjust right of veto; despite all of this, 19 young men were able – by the grace of Allah, the Most High – to change the direction of its compass. And in fact, the subject of the Mujahideen has become an inseparable part of the speech of your leader, and the effects and signs of that are not hidden.

Since the 11th, many of America’s policies have come under the influence of the Mujahideen, and that is by the grace of Allah, the Most High. And as a result, the people discovered the truth about it, its reputation worsened, its prestige was broken globally and it was bled dry economically, even if our interests overlap with the interests of the major corporations and also with those of the neoconservatives, despite the differing intentions.

And for your information media, during the first years of the war, lost its credibility and manifested itself as a tool of the colonialist empires, and its condition has often been worse than the condition of the media of the dictatorial regimes which march in the caravan of the single leader.

Then Bush talks about his working with al-Maliki and his government to spread freedom in Iraq but he is in fact is working with the leaders of one sect against another sect, in the belief that this will quickly decide the war in his favor.

And thus, what is called the civil war came into being and matters worsened at his hands before getting out of his control and him becoming like the one who plows and sows the sea: he harvests nothing but failure.

So these are some of the results of the freedom about whose spreading he is talking to you. And then the backtracking of Bush on his insistence on not giving the United Nations expanded jurisdiction in Iraq is an implicit admission of his loss and defeat there.

And among the most important items contained in Bush’s speeches since the events of the 11th is that the Americans have no options but to continue this war. This tone is in fact an echoing of the words of neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld and Richard Perle, the latter having said previously that the Americans have no choice in front of them other than to continue the war or face a holocaust.

I say, refuting this unjust statement, that the morality and culture of the holocaust is your culture, not our culture. In fact, burning living beings is forbidden in our religion, even if they be small like the ant, so what of man?! The holocaust of the Jews was carried out by your brethren in the middle of Europe, but had it been closer to our countries, most of the Jews would have been saved by takng refuge with us. And my proof for that is in what your brothers, the Spanish, did when they set up the horrible courts of the Inquisition to try Muslims and Jews, when the Jews only found safe shelter by taking refuge in our countries. And that is why the Jewish community in Morocco today is one of the largest communities in the world. They are alive with us and we have not incinerated them, but we are a people who don’t sleep under oppression and reject humiliation and disgrace, and we take revenge on the people of tyranny and aggression, and the blood of the Muslims will not be spilled with impunity, and the morrow is night for he who awaits.

Also, your Christian brothers have been living among us for 14 centuries in Egypt alone, there are millions of Christians whom we have not incinerated and shall not incinerate. But the fact is, there is a continuing and biased campaign being waged against us for a long time now by your politicians and many of your writers by way of your media, especially Hollywood, for the purpose of misrepresenting Islam and its adherents to drive you away from the true religion. The genocide of peoples and their holocausts took place at your hands: only a few specimens of Red Indians were spared, and just a few days ago, the Japanese observed the 62nd anniversary of the annihilation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by your nuclear weapons.

And among the things which catch the eye of the one who considers the repercussions of your unjust war against Iraq is the failure of your democratic system, despite it raising of the slogans of justice, liberty, equality and humanitarianism. It has not only failed to achieve these things, it has actually destroyed these and other concepts with its weapons – especially in Iraq and Afghanistan – in a brazen fashion, to replace them with fear, destruction, killing, hunger, illness, displacement and more than a million orphans in Baghdad alone, not to mention hundreds of thousands of widows. American statistics speak of the killing of more than 650,000 of the people of Iraq as a result of the war and its repercussions.

People of America: the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of the tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning. On the contrary, they continue to agree to the spending of tens of billions to continue the killing and war there, which has led to the vast majority of you being afflicted with disappointment.

And here is the gist of the matter, so one should pause, think and reflect: why have the Democrats failed to stop this war, despite them being the majority?

I will come back to reply to this question after raising another question, which is:

Why are the leaders of the White House keen to start wars and wage them around the world, and make use of every possible opportunity through which they can reach this purpose, occasionally even creating justifications based on deception and blatant lies, as you saw Iraq?

In the Vietnam War, the leaders of the White House claimed at the time that it was a necessary and crucial war, and during it, Rumsfeld and his aides murdered two million villagers. And when Kennedy took over the presidency and deviated from the general line of policy drawn up for the White House and wanted to stop this unjust war, that angered the owners of the major corporations who were benefiting from its continuation.

And so Kennedy was killed, and al-Qaeda wasn’t present at that time, but rather, those corporations were the primary beneficiary from his killing. And the war continued after that for approximately one decade. But after it became clear to you that it was an unjust and unnecessary war, you made one of your greatest mistakes, in that you neither brought to account nor punished those who waged this war, not even the most violent of its murderers, Rumsfeld. And even more incredible than that is that Bush picked him as secretary of defense in his first term after picking Cheney as his vice-president, Powell as secretary of state and Armitage as Powell’s deputy, despite their horrific and bloody history of murdering humans. So that was a clear signal that his administration – the administration of the generals – didn’t have as its main concern the serving of humanity, but rather, was interested in bringing about new massacres. Yet in spite of that, you permitted Bush to complete his first term, and stranger still, chose him for a second term, which gave him a clear mandate from you – with your full knowledge and consent – to continue to murder our people in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Then you claim to be innocent! This innocence of yours is like my innocence of the blood of your sons of the 11th – were I to claim such a thing. But it is impossible for me to humor any of you in the arrogance and indifference you show for the lives of humans outside America, or for me to humor your leaders in their lying, as the entire world knows they have the lion’s share of that. These morals aren’t our morals. What I want to emphasize here is that not taking past war criminals to account led to them repeating that crime of killing humanity without right and waging this unjust war in Mesopotamia, and as a result, here are the oppressed ones today continuing to take their right from you.

This war was entirely unnecessary, as testified to by your own reports. And among the most capable of those from your side who speak to you on this topic and on the manufacturing of public opinion is Noam Chomsky, who spoke sober words of advice prior to the war, but the leader of Texas doesn’t like those who give advice. The entire world came out in unprecedented demonstrations to warn against waging the war and describe its true nature in eloquent terms like “no to spilling red blood for black oil,” yet he paid them no heed. It is time for humankind to know that talk of the rights of man and freedom are lies produced by the White House and its allies in Europe to deceive humans, take control of their destinies and subjugate them.

So in answer to the question about the causes of the Democrats’ failure to stop the war, I say: they are the same reasons which led to the failure of former president Kennedy to stop the Vietnam war. Those with real power and influence are those with the most capital. And since the democratic system permits major corporations to back candidates, be they presidential or congressional, there shouldn’t be any cause for astonishment – and there isn’t any – in the Democrats’ failure to stop the war. And you’re the ones who have the saying which goes, “Money talks.” And I tell you: after the failure of your representatives in the Democratic Party to implement your desire to stop the war, you can still carry anti-war placards and spread out in the streets of major cities, then go back to your homes, but that will be of no use and will lead to the prolonging of the war.

However, there are two solutions for stopping it. The first is from our side, and it is to continue to escalate the killing and fighting against you. That is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out, and I ask Allah to grant them resolve and victory. And the second solution is from your side. It has now become clear to you and the entire world the impotence of the democratic system and how it plays with the interests of the peoples and their blood by sacrificing soldiers and populations to achieve the interests of the major corporations.

And with that, it has become clear to all that they are the real tyrannical terrorists. In fact, the life of all of mankind is in danger because of the global warming resulting to a large degree from the emissions of the factories of the major corporations, yet despite that, the representative of these corporations in the White House insists on not observing the Kyoto accord, with the knowledge that the statistic speaks of the death and displacement of the millions of human beings because of that, especially in Africa. This greatest of plagues and most dangerous of threats to the lives of humans is taking place in an accelerating fashion as the world is being dominated by the democratic system, which confirms its massive failure to protect humans and their interests from the greed and avarice of the major corporations and their representatives.

And despite this brazen attack on the people, the leaders of the West – especially Bush, Blair, Sarkozy and Brown – still talk about freedom and human rights with a flagrant disregard for the intellects of human beings. So is there a form of terrorism stronger, clearer and more dangerous than this? This is why I tell you: as you liberated yourselves before from the slavery of monks, kings, and feudalism, you should liberate yourselves form the deception, shackles and attrition of the capitalist system.

If you were to ponder it well, you would find that in the end, it is a system harsher and fiercer than your systems in the Middle Ages. The capitalist system seeks to turn the entire world into a fiefdom of the major corporations under the label of “globalization” in order to protect democracy.

And Iraq and Afghanistan and their tragedies; and the reeling of many of you under the burden of interest-related debts, insane taxes and real estate mortgages; global warming and its woes; and the abject poverty and tragic hunger in Africa: all of this is but one side of this global system.

So it is imperative that you free yourselves from all of that and search for an alternative, upright methodology in which it is not the business of any class of humanity to lay down its own laws to its own advantage at the expense of the other classes as is the case with you, since the essence of man-made positive laws is that they serve the interests of those with the capital and thus make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

The infallible methodology is the methodology of Allah, the Most High, who created the heavens and earth and created the Creation and is the Most Kind and All-Informed and the Knower of the souls of His slaves and the methodology that best suits them.

You believe with absolute certainty that you believe in Allah, and you are full of conviction of this belief, so much that you have written this belief of yours on your dollar.

But the truth is that you are mistaken in this belief of yours. The impartial judge knows that belief in Allah requires straightness in the following of His methodology, and accordingly, total obedience must be to the orders and prohibitions of Allah Alone in all aspects of life.

So how about you when you associate others with Him in your beliefs and separate state from religion, then claim that you are believers?!

What you have done is clear loss and manifest polytheism, and I will give you a parable of polytheism, as parables summarize and clarify speech.

I tell you: its parable is the parable of a man who owns a shop and hires a worker and tells him, “Sell and give me the money,” but he makes sales and gives the money to someone other than the owner. So who of you would approve of that?

You believe that Allah is your Lord and your Creator and the Creator of this earth and that it is His property, then you work on His earth and property without His orders and without obeying Him, and you legislate in contradiction to His Law and methodology.

This work of yours is the greatest form of polytheism and is rebellion against obedience to Allah with which the believer becomes an unbeliever, even if he obeys Allah in some of his other orders. Allah, the Most High, sent down His orders in His Sacred Books like the Torah and Evangel and sent with them the Messengers (Allah’s prayers and peace be upon them) as bearers of good news to the people.

And everyone who believes in them and complies with them is a believer from the people of the Garden. Then when the men of knowledge altered the words of Allah, the Most High, and sold them for a paltry price, as the rabbis did with the Torah and the monks with the Evangel, Allah sent down his final Book, the magnificent Quran, and safeguarded it from being added to or subtracted from by the hands of men, and in it is a complete methodology for the lives of all people.

And our holding firm to this magnificent Book is the secret of our strength and winning of the war against you despite the fewness of our numbers and materiel.

And if you would like to get to know some of the reasons for your losing of your war against us, then read the book of Michael Scheuer in this regard.

Don’t be turned away from Islam by the terrible situation of the Muslims today, for our rulers in general abandoned Islam many decades ago, but our forefathers were the leaders and pioneers of the world for many centuries, when they held firmly to Islam.

And before concluding, I tell you: there has been an increase in the thinkers who study events and happenings, and on the basis of their study, they have declared the approach of the collapse of that American Empire.

Among them is the European banker who anticipated the fall of the Soviet Union, which indeed fell. And it would benefit you to read what he wrote about what comes after the empire in regard to the United States of America. I also want to bring to your attention that among the greatest reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union was their being afflicted with their leader Brezhnev, who was overtaken by pride and arrogance and refused to look at the facts on the ground. From the first year of the Afghanistan invasion, reports indicated that the Russians were losing the war, but he refused to acknowledge this, lest it go down in his personal history as a defeat, even though refusal to acknowledge defeat not only doesn’t do anything to change the facts for thinking people, but also exacerbates the problem and increases the losses. And how similar is your position today to their position approximately two decades ago. The mistakes of Brezhnev are being repeated by Bush, who – when asked about the date of his withdrawing of forces from Iraq – said in effect that the withdrawal will not be during his reign, bur but rather, during the reign of the one who succeeds him. And the significance of those words is not hidden.

And here I say: it would benefit you to listen to the poignant messages of your soldiers in Iraq, who are paying – with their blood, nerves and scattered limbs – the price for these sorts of irresponsible statements. Among them is the eloquent message of Joshua which he sent by way of the media, in which he wipes the tears from his eyes and describes American politicians in harsh terms and invites them to join him there for a few days. Perhaps his message will find in you an attentive year so you can rescue him and more than 150,000 of your sons there who are tasting the two bitterest things:

If they leave their barracks, the mines devour them, and if they refuse to leave, rulings are passed against them. Thus the only options left in front of them are to commit suicide or cry, both of which are from the severest of afflictions. So is there anything more men can do after crying and killing themselves to make you respond to them? They are doing that out of the severity of the humiliation, fear and terror which they are suffering. It is severer than what the slaves used to suffer at your hands centuries ago, and it is as if some of them have gone from one slavery to another slavery more severe and harmful, even if it be in the fancy dress of the Defense Department’s financial enticements.

So do you feel the greatness of their sufferings?

To conclude, I invite you to embrace Islam, for the greatest mistake one can make in this world and one which is uncorrectable is to die while not surrendering to Allah, the Most High, in all aspects of one’s life – i.e. to die outside of Islam. And Islam means gain for you in this first life and the next, final life. The true religion is a mercy for people in their lives, filling their hearts with serenity and calm.

There is a message for you in the Mujahideen: the entire world is in pursuit of them, yet their hearts, by the grace of Allah, are satisfied and tranquil. The true religion also puts peoples’ lives in order with its laws; protects their needs and interests; refines their goals; protects them from evils; and guarantees for them entrance into Paradise in the hereafter through their obedience to Allah and sincere worship of Him Alone.

And it will also achieve your desire to stop the war as a consequence, because as soon as the warmongering owners of the major corporations realize that you have lost confidence in your democratic system and begun to search for an alternative, and that this alternative is Islam, they will run to you to please you and achieve what you want to steer you away from Islam. So your true compliance with Islam will deprive them of the opportunity to defraud the peoples and take their money under numerous pretexts, like arms deals and so on.

There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakat (alms) totaling only 2.5%. So beware of the deception of those with the capital. And with your earnest reading about Islam from its pristine sources, you will arrive at an important truth, which is that the religion of all of the Prophets (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them) is one, and that its essence is submission to the orders of Allah Alone in all aspects of life, even if their Shari’ahs [Laws] differ.

And did you know that the name of the Prophet of Allah Jesus and his mother (peace and blessings of Allah be on them both) are mentioned in the Noble Quran dozens of times, and that in the Quran there is a chapter whose name is “Maryam,” i.e. Mary, daughter of ‘Imran and mother of Jesus (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them both)? It tells the story of her becoming pregnant with the Prophet of Allah Jesus (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them both), and in its confirmation of her chastity and purity, in contrast to the fabrications of the Jews against her. Whoever wishes to find that out for himself must listen to the verse of this magnificent chapter: one of the just kings of the Christians – the Negus – listened to some of its verses and his eyes welled up with tears and he said something which should be reflected on for a long time by those sincere in their search for the truth.

He said, “verily, this and what Jesus brought come from one lantern”: i.e. that the magnificent Quran and the Evangel are both from Allah, the Most High; and every just and intelligent one of you who reflects of the Quran will definitely arrive at this truth. It also must be noted that Allah has preserved the Quran from the alterations of man. And reading in order to become acquainted with Islam only requires a little effort, and those of you who are guided will profit greatly. And peace be upon he who follows the Guidance.

The End

  1. Osama has never failed in ensuring his tapes get released at the most politically opportune times – not for ‘Al-Qaeda’ – but for the Neo-Cons and the Bush administration.

    On the eve of the Iraq war, during Colin Powell’s infamous presentation to the UN, an audio tape in which bin Laden claimed he was allied with Saddam Hussein surfaced, a gift-wrapped present for the Neo-Cons who had consistently been proven wrong in their assertion that there was a connection between Iraq and 9/11.

    The Osama tapes are about as genuine as a used car salesman convention, and have been proven fraudulent on countless occasions. They are nothing more than crude propaganda unleashed in a desperate move to put the genie of what really happened on 9/11 back in the bottle. infowars dot com

  2. Well. It appears that False Prophets are rising up all over the place. We must keep our eyes on Jesus Christ, the true Risen Lord, who was and is and is to come. He is not a prophet of Allah. He is the King of Kings.

  4. So, “Bin Laden” just happens to be hitting every major Leftist platitude in his latest anti-America tape, eh? And exactly whose interests does that serve, I wonder? Wake up, man. It’s called psychological warfare. Bin Laden is our so-called government’s Emmanuel Goldstein.

    Follow the money, my friend. The psychopaths in charge over here and the psychopaths in charge over there share quite similar obsessions, philosophies and identities: it’s only the labels/nationalities that change, and the severity to which they can take the same tactics. In a family squabble between different factions of fascists, I choose not to be a cheerleader for any of them, whether called Republican (Guiliani), Democrat (Hillary), or some ever-shifting groupiscule of Jihadists.

    You’re being softened up for a Gladio-style artificial terror event. But feel free to keep waving that party banner.

    Try researching Gladio. Research the Southeast Asian drug triangle and the Nazi ratlines which gave safe-haven and influential positions within the establishment o these criminals not only in the Middle East, but also Russia, South America and right here in the U.S.

    Then start to figure things out.

  5. Good post. The war isn’t over yet and though bin Laden is far more of a figure head than warlord his words and deeds still are powerful. He should never be discounted. The 3000 dead that we will remember on 9-11 attest to that.

  6. The old charmer is less poetic than usual, isn’t he? Though the plowing the sea image is nice. He still has that long view of history, with references to overthrowing feudalism, no less, and linking that to globalization, as well as quite truthfully pointing out that Jews were better off in Muslim al-Andalus than in Christian Europe. But what was quite exciting was his weighing in on the JFK assassination. As well as his promise to reduce taxes if we submit to the will of Wahhabism. I don’t think any politician has had the smarts to combine Ron Paul libertarianism with an ending of separation of church and state along with a Naomi Klein vision of evil corporations. Could be a winner.

  7. Good post, shame about some of the comments from the religious Christian zealots and conspiracy wannabes.

    I agree with the comments by The Infidel Sage though.

    I posted my own article about Bin Laden’s video today and you’re welcome to read:

    http://ellis14.wordpress.com/2007/09/08/osama-bin-laden-video-an-infidels-response/

  8. you have to admit osama is a sly fox.we as the greatest military in the world and we have spent billions of dollars and osama is still walking and talking and breathing.so for what have we done these things?maybe osama knows something that we dont,or has ALLAH protected him?alot to think about as a american.

  9. Osama Bin Laden is wily, but he is not protected by any Divine or Satanic power, nor is he in bed with the United States or Israel or Russia or China. From the reading I’ve done, the top dogs in Al Qaeda have dozens of miles of layered defenses around, all done with operatives, and they travel with layered defenses. They know when anything out of the ordinary is approaching because they have so many layers of guards.

    Imagine Bin Laden, if he is still alive, or Zawahiri more like Keyser Soze from the Usual Suspects than Moses from the Ten Commandments.

    And any conspiracy theory that depends on a conspiracy of CIA types is flat impossible. The CIA is in semi-insurrection against the president. The CIA would have leaked this already, if it were true. And if it were true, Loose Change would never have been finished. The people who espouse those theories on the Internet would be dead and their words would have disappeared. No conspiracy ruthless and secretive enough to kill 3,000 American civilians in a false-flag operation and keep it secret would hesitate a minute before killing a few documentarians and their fanboys. The fact that “Truthers” are free to spread anti-American conspiracy theories proves that they are crackpots.

  10. Thanks for posting the full text of Osama’s message–or purported message. It isn’t up to his earlier efforts. Instead, it wanders from an unusual, even tortured, view of Vietnam-era history to WWII to the Kyoto accords to approved Western authors and even an Islam promotion that would find good company in late-night TV ads for Ginsu knives and pocket sewing machines. There’s even a plug for cutting the little people’s taxes. Take that, Leona Helmsley. Re global warming, for some reason he left out the polar bears. Maybe next time.

    He also could have mentioned the benefits of owning quarries should Americans want to dump the primaries and take him up on his offer of an Islamist state ruled by shariah courts. Stones will be needed in large quantities for adulterers, heretics, and gay men, so the opportunity is there to meet a surging demand. I don’t know if anyone cares about lesbians; Osama never mentions them. Although he and Ali al-Sistani may find themselves at odds over which blood line is the rightful heir to Muhammad, they do concur about harsh treatment for any usurper of the social order. This surely will attract votes from the family-values crowd and maybe even National Gypsum and Home Depot, which can adapt to the new paradigm with little disruption to their mission statements. So leave your taxes behind and pick up some stones to throw. Umma, here we come.

    Opinion seems divided about whether the man depicted is really Osama and why his hair is apparently dyed black. Some say it is in accordance with strict jihadist requirements, to look younger to confound one’s enemies, while others claim Osama is simply enjoying a Mike Wallace moment while he feels confident enough to pull it off. I’m not competent to say which is the accurate view, but I will say that these videos and transcripts are getting more derivative and therefore more suspect. Osama may still be on message and more articulate than our own “leaders,” but then that may be due to his becoming more of a fabrication of some Wizard of Oz puppeteer in the background. Thus, nearly six years after his first video efforts, the mystery has nearly trumped the message and Osama appears almost to caricature himself. He criticizes Hollywood and then beats them at their own game. An amazing fellow, isn’t he?

  11. This is his best effort yet. Clearly shows how marxist/leninist criticism of “capitalism” is alive and well. The unholy alliance of left-wingers and islamists has a more solid foundation than I thought.

    The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Last time I checked everyone in the middle-east was poor, and has been for a very long while, thanks to a not-so-well functioning culture/religion.

  12. The more dangerous part of bin Laden’s message is his populism, where he promises there will be no taxes except a 2.5% zakat on income. This will so attract the rich, the ones who are guiding the destiny of the world in every country, that they will fall for it and work with him to help him in achieving his goal of making Islam as the only religion on earth!

  13. RRE, actually Bin Laden is filthy rich, as are quite a number of men in the Middle East. The fact that the wealth is divided doesn’t mean that there is no wealth at all. But you’re right; it certainly does lend validity to the Marxist dialectic, which has always appealed to those who are disenfranchised, whether politically or economically.

    Wolf, thanks for posting this. Someone had to, and I agree with the things you’ve said here, especially about the CIA.

  14. I wonder if the timing of his public comments was provoked by the recent Bush visit? I.e. he’s not afraid, I’m not afraid.

  15. Thanks for the transcript! Funny error; Rumsfeld didn’t become Secretary of Defense until 1975 when Ford was President, and Kennedy had been dead since 1963. I guess Adam Gadahn’s education was lacking in details, but not paranoia, and when was OBL a Kennedy assassination conspiricy theorist before; I thought he wanted all of us dead

  16. I believe that bin Laden is dead and may have died as far back as Tora Bora. The 2004 video as well as these latest images do not jive with images of bin Laden pre-2002. They’re not horribly bad fabrications, but still, no cigar – Also the dialog used in the 2004 and 2007 videos doesn’t jive with earlier stuff known to be from OBL.

    IMHO, this is psychological warfare mainly aimed at effecting leftists. I don’t buy it – I have both seen and heard Elvis imitators that pulled off a better performance.

  19. So the Islam forbids incinerating even an ant….
    When the bombs go off I don’t suppose they actually incinerate anything…

    Regarding, just obey Allah and he will let you into heaven…
    It is impossible to fully obey God’s law, because we aren’t perfect. That is why Jesus’ death was necessary- to show the love and mercy of God and set an example of how we are to forgive others and sacrifice ourselves in love for each other. “Self righteous” is a religious term that denotes one who tries to make themselves righteous by their own efforts instead of humbly admitting failure and depending upon God.

    Regarding Abrogation….
    The Bible warns against accepting any “Different” gospels- even if they be brought by an angel. The Koran, and Jewish or Christian legalism are the religion of Tashlan that causes man to hate God, by misrepresenting his character. (Read C.S. Lewis The Chronicle’s of Narnia.)
    Tashlan– the false syncretic religion that mixed Truth of the Creator with a polytheistic war god (perhaps Assyrian) that demanded human sacrifice and denied Aslan’s self-sacrifice. It’s tyrannical demands caused the people of Narnia to turn from and hate God.

    Regarding Taxation
    -Nope, no taxes here- the government flunkies just own most every corporation….Which is the case in just about every Islamic state and the state of every nation that has ever adopted the type of socialism that the Wahabbis like!!

    Regarding the rest of the text
    “Where there are many words, sin is not absent.”

    Long Live Aslan! Long Live Free Narnia!

  22. minor typo in the “European banker..” paragraph.. “during his reign, bur rather, during the reign of the one who succeeds him. And the significance of those words is not hidden.”

    thanks for the posting. yep, fundamentalist Muslims don’t fry ants, they explode their youths and civilian bystanders in the name of their supreme prophet.

    what a shameful reflection on them as “human beings.”

    2.5% tax? yep, and they have, with it, created some of the lowest standards of living in the entire world, phenomenal distances below the horrible conditions created by the nasty “capitalists” of the world. something to REALLY be proud of, bin Laden. —- Not!

    and to think that we’ll all convert to your tortured version of Islam… well… stick around and watch. we won’t go quietly, trust me.

    Wolf sez: Thanks for the typo catch. Fixed.

  23. I noticed that everyone is eager to mirror US appreciating the Bin Laden style, but each has his language.I wonder whether the speaker wants run in as the next US president when it is noticed that the interest of Americans is addressed more than the al-qaeda’s reason of act.Bin ladens are still multiplying no doubt.

  24. Well, I think the speaker is Azzam Al-Amiriki, you can make the boy wear a dress, but you can’t take his ethnocentrism from him.

    He could have ended his speech with the following advertisement.
    “Death Metal to Death Cult– Not as drastic a change as one might think. I didn’t have to cut my hair and I still get as many babes as I want, plus I get to blow stuff up. And heaven, well it ain’t that lame Christian worship God for all eternity stuff, it’s all booze and babes and an eternity of pleasuring myself”

    TRUE- Al- Queda is obsessed with the United States and Europe. Like they think the rest of the world is irrelevant. As a patriotic American, and fundamentalist Christian, I tend to think the other way around. We hit our prime long ago. That is all right by me. It’s just hard to age gracefully.

    Other nations are rising and becoming prosperous– usually in direct accordance with how well they govern (exceptions being nations with great amount of oil money or extreme natural disasters.) God has blessed the earth with enough riches for all. We should rejoice at this!

    The role of America should be that of the aged teacher- who at times must be ignored since her useful wisdom is sometimes infected with senility.

    (Europe is already in the latter stages of dementia! Nobody can actually understand the meaning behind their words, because there is none!)

    America is living proof that Islam is a failure and its teachings are largely false. We enjoy far too many freedoms, (that being the senility part.) Yet, the chaos is not here, it is all where Islamic Sharia reigns.

    Yes, my friends, resist even unto death, mock incessantly (Fools are supposed to be whipped, when you can’t do that give them the verbal tongue lashing they deserve.)

    But mostly ignore and go on with your normal life. Don’t give relevancy to those who don’t deserve it.

    Especially- think LONG TERM-
    Teach your children well,(do it yourself) and have LOTS!
    LOTS! LOTS!

    Azzam–The Lord saith, “The sacrifices of the wicked are detestable, especially when brought with evil intent.”

    Seriously, I pray for you. The Lord says to love your enemies, for then you will become the sons of the Most High. (We Christians are not slaves, we are sons.) I am keeping my covenant. How is yours going?
