BBC- Text of Osama bin Laden audio
Text: 'Bin-Laden audio tape'
CAPS = BILLS COMMENTS:
The pan-Arab TV station al-Jazeera has broadcast an audio tape purporting to be by al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, in which the speaker says al-Qaeda is preparing new attacks on the US.
Here is the full text of the message, as carried on al-Jazeera's website.
My message to you is about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and the way to end it.
GOOD: OLE BINNY WANTS TO END IT.
I had not intended to speak to you about this issue, because, for us, this issue is already decided on: diamonds cut diamonds.
I TAKE THIS AS A REFERENCE TO "EQUAL RESPONSE"
SOMETHING LIKE YOU WILL GET WHAT WE RECIEVE."Bin Laden's logic is "we are at war, and if kaafir kill our women and children we have the right of self defense, and we to can kill women and children."Muslims must follow the Qaaran not copy kaafirs. That is forbidden.what kaafirs do is not an valid excuse for Muslims to do the same,"
Praise be to God, our conditions are always improving and becoming better, while your conditions are to the contrary of this.AQ SAYS IN PRIVATE LETTER:Brother Abu-Musa'b, may God protect and guide you. Bless you, my brother. Know that we ( al Qa'ida ) , like all the mujahidin, are still weak. We are in the stage of weakness and a state of paucity. Blessed be the weak al Qa'idaBINNY IS CONDEMNING HIS TROOPS TO HELL? Al Qadias premise involves killing women and children, not to mention bombing mosques.Killing women and children is forbidden by Allah and the Qaaran.
However, what prompted me to speak are the repeated fallacies of your President Bush in his comment on the outcome of the US opinion polls, which indicated that the overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of the forces from Iraq, but he objected to this desire and said that the withdrawal of troops would send a wrong message to the enemy.
Bush said: It is better to fight them on their ground than they fighting us on our ground.
In my response to these fallacies, I say: The war in Iraq is raging, and the operations in Afghanistan are on the rise in our favour, praise be to God.
The Pentagon figures indicate the rise in the number of your dead and wounded, let alone the huge material losses, and let alone the collapse of the morale of the soldiers there and the increase in the suicide cases among them.
BINNY IS OBVIOUSLY OUT OF TOUCH AND RELYING ON OTHERS FOR INFORMATION, SUCIDE IS AN AL QADIA TRAIT, NOT AMERICAN.
So, just imagine the state of psychological breakdown that afflicts the soldier while collecting the remnants of his comrades' dead bodies after they hit mines, which torn them. Following such situation, the soldier becomes between two fires. If he refuses to go out of his military barracks for patrols, he will face the penalties of the Vietnam butcher, and if he goes out, he will face the danger of mines.
THERE IS A TERM FOR THIS IN PSYCHOLOGY, HE IS NOT TALKING ABOUT AMERICAN TROOPS HERE BUT HIS OWN DE-MORALIZED TROOPS.
So, he is between two bitter situations, something which puts him under psychological pressure - fear, humiliation, and coercion. Moreover, his people are careless about him. So, he has no choice but to commit suicide.
SOUNDS LIKE HE IS ACTUALLY REFERING TO AL QADIA, THEY COMMIT SUCIDE.
What you hear about him and his suicide is a strong message to you, which he wrote with his blood and soul while pain and bitterness eat him up so that you would save what you can save from this hell. However, the solution is in your hand if you care about them.Before al Qa'ida there were 10,000 to 20,000 americans in the Middle East, blessed be al Qa'idaBlessed be al Qa'ida, for they have stopped Iraq from uniting and telling the crusaders to leave.By attacking the americans al Qa'ida have brought and kept 140,000 american and forgein troops with in the land of two rivers.al Qa'ida attacked on 9.11, hoping USA would attack Afghan.My brothers you know USA took Afghan and Iraq, blessed be al Qa'idaIf not continually attacked USA would have left in the first year, with al Qa'ida and the Mujahideen attacks USA troops are still here 5 years later. blessed be al Qa'ida.
The news of our brother mujahideen, however, is different from what is published by the Pentagon.
This news indicates that what is carried by the news media does not exceed what is actually taking place on the ground. What increases doubts on the information of the White House's administration is its targeting of the news media, which carry some facts about the real situation.
Documents have recently showed that the butcher of freedom in the world [US President Bush] had planned to bomb the head office of al-Jazeera Space Channel in the state of Qatar after he bombed its offices in Kabul and Baghdad, although despite its defects, it is [Al-Jazeera] one of your creations. DELUSIONAL.
Jihad is continuing, praise be to God, despite all the repressive measures the US army and its agents take to the point where there is no significant difference between these crimes and those of Saddam.Al qadia is using Islam as a cover to recruit "Muslim" bombers in the name of Islam.Problem being killing women, children, mosque bombing are in violation of the Qaaran.Flat out they are going to hel
These crimes include the raping of women and taking them hostage instead of their husbands. There is no power but in God. TO USA'S CREDIT THEY PROSECUTED AND PUT THEM IN PRISON.
The torturing of men has reached the point of using chemical acids and electric drills in their joints. If they become desperate with them, they put the drill on their heads until death.
"USA DOESN'T CONTROL MUSLIM KILLING MUSLIM, YOU WILL SEE THE SAD MUSLIM BLOOD BATH WHEN USA LEAVES, AND WATCH IT SPREAD TO OTHER ME COUNTRIES, OF COURSE YOU WILL STILL BLAME USA IN STEAD OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY, AL QADIA: NO INTEGRITY, SHOULDERS OF AN OLD WOMAN."
SO WHY IS THERE A CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ NOW?
AQ STARTED THE ISLAMIC CIVIL WAR, AND NOW BLAME USA.
(MUSLIM KILLING MUSLIM, ALL FOR PERSONAL GLORY OF A FEW munaafiqeen.)
If you like, read the humanitarian reports on the atrocities and crimes in the prisons of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
NOTE THERE ARE NO BEHEADINGS, OR DISEMBOWELING.
I say that despite all the barbaric methods, they have failed to ease resistance, and the number of mujahideen, praise be to God, is increasing.
USA WIPED OUT 70% OF AQ.
In fact, reports indicate that the defeat and devastating failure of the ill-omened plan of the four - Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz - and the announcement of this defeat and working it out, is only a matter of time, which is to some extent linked to the awareness of the American people of the magnitude of this tragedy.
The wise ones know that Bush has no plan to achieve his alleged victory in Iraq. Blessed be al Qa'ida, for they have stopped Iraq from uniting and telling the crusaders to leave.
If you compare the small number of the dead when Bush made that false and stupid show-like announcement from an aircraft carrier on the end of the major operations, to many times as much as this number of the killed and injured, who fell in the minor operations, you will know the truth in what I am saying, and that Bush and his administration do not have neither the desire nor the will to withdraw from Iraq for their own dubious reasons.
LESS THAN 4,000 USA DEAD IN WHAT? 5 YRS?, WHAT ARE AQ NUMBERS OF DEAD, BEYOND COUNT.
To go back to where I started, I say that the results of the poll satisfy sane people and that Bush's objection to them is false.
Reality testifies that the war against America and its allies has not remained confined to Iraq, as he claims.
In fact, Iraq has become a point of attraction and recruitment of qualified resources.
On the other hand, the mujahideen, praise be to God, have managed to breach all the security measures adopted by the unjust nations of the coalition time and again.
The evidence of this is the bombings you have seen in the capitals of the most important European countries of this aggressive coalition.KILLING WOMEN AND CHILDREN? The Qarran orders Binnys death.FOR KILLING WOMEN AND CHILDREN.Allah said: "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter." 33:Al-Maeda .
As for the delay in carrying out similar operations in America, this was not due to failure to breach your security measures.
Operations are under preparation, and you will see them on your own ground once they are finished, God willing.
Based on the above, we see that Bush's argument is false. However, the argument that he avoided, which is the substance of the results of opinion polls on withdrawing the troops, is that it is better not to fight the Muslims on their land and for them not to fight us on our land.We do not object to a long-term
truce with you on the basis of fair conditions that we respect.
I DON'T THINK USA WANTS A TRUCE, THEY WANT BINNY.
We are a nation, for which God has disallowed treachery and lying.
HAS HE DISALLOWED KILLING WONEM, CHILDREN, CIVILIANS, BOMBING MOSQUES?In this truce
, both parties will enjoy security and stability and we will build Iraq and Afghanistan, which were destroyed by the war.
I THINK THEY WANT BINNY THEN A TRUCE.
There is no defect in this solution other than preventing the flow of hundreds of billions to the influential people and war merchants in America, who supported Bush's election campaign with billions of dollars.
Hence, we can understand the insistence of Bush and his gang to continue the war.
If you have a genuine will to achieve security and peace, we have already answered
THEY GENUINLY WANT BINNY , THEN A TRUCE.
If Bush declines but to continue lying and practicing injustice [against us], it is useful for you to read the book of "The Rogue State", the introduction of which reads: If I were a president, I would halt the operations against the United States.
First, I will extend my apologies to the widows, orphans,
and the persons who were tortured. Afterwards, I will announce that the US interference in the world's countries has ended for ever.
Finally, I would like to tell you that the war is for you or for us to win. If we win it, it means your defeat and disgrace forever as the wind blows in this direction with God's help.
ISLAM WILL DEFEAT THE ISLAMOFACSISTS.
If you win it, you should read the history. We are a nation that does not tolerate injustice and seek revenge forever.
KILLING WOMEN, CHILDREN, CIVILIANS, BOMBING MOSQUES,
YOU ARE NOT A NATION YOU ARE TERRORISTS GOING TO HELL SO SAYS THE QAARAN.
Days and nights will not go by until we take revenge as we did on 11 September, God willing, and until your minds are exhausted and your lives become miserable and things turn [for the worse], which you detest.
As for us, we do not have anything to lose. The swimmer in the sea does not fear rain. You have occupied our land, defiled our honour,
AQ KILLING WOMEN CHILDREN, AQ HAS NO 'HONOUR'
violated our dignity, shed our blood, ransacked our money, demolished our houses, rendered us homeless, and tampered with our security. We will treat you in the same way.
You tried to deny us the decent life, but you cannot deny us a decent death. Refraining from performing jihad, which is sanctioned by our religion, is an appalling sin. The best way of death for us is under the shadows of swords.
BINNY accused of being mohareb,
Do not be deluded by your power and modern weapons. Although they win some battles, they lose the war. Patience and steadfastness are better than them. What is important is the outcome.
We have been tolerant for 10 years in fighting the Soviet Union with our few weapons and we managed to drain their economy.
They became history, with God's help.
You should learn lessons from that. We will remain patient in fighting you, God willing, until the one whose time has come dies first. We will not escape the fight as long as we hold our weapons in our hands.
I swear not to die but a free man even if I taste the bitterness of death
. I fear to be humiliated or betrayed.
DO NOT FEAR HUMILIATION OR BETRAYAL, FEAR ALLAH.
Peace be upon those who follow (AQ) guidance.
(DEATH TO THOSE THAT DON'T FOLLOW AQ GUIDANCE)
AQ criticize the Muslim religious leaders who are obstructing the path of al Qaeda.
The path of al Qa'ida and the Mujahideen are in contravention of the Shura methodology.
KILLING WOMEN, CIVILIANS IN VIOLATION OF THE QAARAN.What does the Qaaran say about this?IT CALLS FOR BINNYS DEATH,Allah said: "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter." 33:Al-Maeda .
