Osama Bin Dead for a Long Time
Yep, another audiotape. He’s dead, folks. Has been for a long time. Bin Laden: Palestinian cause fuels war.
This propaganda is intended for the American left, who are already getting more and more open about their hatred of Israel and their desire to appease radical Islamists. It reinforces the message that if they elect Obama and throw Israel to the crocodile, it will eat them last.
CAIRO, Egypt - Osama bin Laden said in a new audio recording released Friday that al-Qaida will continue its holy war against Israel and its allies until it liberates Palestine.
The terrorist leader’s third statement this year came as President Bush was wrapping up his visit to Israel to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Jewish state.
Bin Laden said the fight for the Palestinian cause was the most important factor driving al-Qaida’s war with the West and fueled 19 Muslims to carry out the suicide attacks against the U.S. on September 11.
“To Western nations … this speech is to understand the core reason of the war between our civilization and your civilizations. I mean the Palestinian cause,” said bin Laden in the close to 10 minute audiotape.
“The Palestinian cause is the major issue for my (Islamic) nation. It was an important element in fueling me from the beginning and the 19 others with a great motive to fight for those subjected to injustice and the oppressed,” added bin Laden.
UPDATE at 5/16/08 9:09:43 am:
Sure enough, CBS News is promoting the exact line of thinking I described above:
Mr. Bush’s embrace of Israel at a time when the Palestinians were mourning was bound to further harm the tainted U.S. image in the Palestinian areas and across the Arab world.
