Bin Laden Desperately Needs Martyr’s

*Qur’an 8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.’” (Qur’an 5:72 defines “infidels” as “Christians” in case you were wondering)

* Paradise is guaranteed to those who “slay and are slain” for Allah: “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth” (Qur’an 9:111).

* Bin Laden chose the date of 9:11 because of this sura in the Koran, not because it is the number to make a distress call…Link

* Analysts keep ignoring the deeply religious convictions and motivations of the Jihadists:

*Nor are these jihadists misrepresenting, twisting, or hijacking what the Qur’an says. Indeed, they are fiercely literalistic, taking the book’s many martial verses at face value. There are over a hundred verses in the Qur’an that exhort believers to wage jihad against unbelievers. “O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed” (Sura 9:73). “Strive hard” in Arabic is jahidi, a verbal form of the noun jihad. This striving was to be on the battlefield: “When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly” (Qur’an 47:4). This is emphasized repeatedly: “O ye who believe! Fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him” (Qur’an 9:123).

Bin Laden wants ‘caravan’ of ‘martyrs’

By Lee Keath for the Associated Press via JW

CAIRO, Egypt – Osama bin Laden urged sympathizers to join the “caravan” of martyrs as he praised one of the Sept. 11 suicide hijackers in a new video that emerged Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Al-Qaida traditionally issues a video every year on the anniversary, with the last testament of one of the 19 hijackers involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. This year’s video showed hijacker Waleed al-Shehri addressing the camera and warning the U.S.: “We shall come at you from your front and back, your right and left.”
The new message, which AP Television News obtained from the IntelCenter monitoring group in suburban Washington, came days after the world got its first current look at bin Laden in nearly three years, with the release of a video Saturday in which the terror leader addressed the American people.

Later in the day it appeared on militant Web sites, with a note from al-Qaiada’s media production wing al-Sahab saying it was intentionally sent to television stations before being placed on the Internet.
It begins with an audiotape introduction by bin Laden. While his voice is heard, the video shows a still image of him, raising his finger. In the image, bin Laden has the same dyed-black beard and the same clothes — a white robe and cap and beige cloak — that he had in Saturday’s video.
But it was not known if the audiotape was recently made. In the past, al-Qaida has used footage and audio of bin Laden taped long ago for release later.
In the tape, bin Laden praised al-Shehri, saying he “recognized the truth” that Arab rulers were “vassals” of the West and had “abandoned the balance of (Islamic) revelation.”



600-pound minibus bomb defused in Turkish capital

“Turkish police foil bombing in capital,” by Selcan Hacaoglu for the Associated Press:

* all of it had -of course- nothing to do with Islam

ANKARA, Turkey – Authorities thwarted a bombing, possibly timed to coincide with the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, as police found and defused more than 600 pounds of explosives Tuesday in a minibus parked near an Ankara market.
Turkey, a U.S. ally in the fight against global terrorism, has increased security on the anniversary of the 2001 attacks in the United States.
Sniffer dogs discovered the blue minibus at a multistory parking garage near an open food market. Its license plate was stolen from another vehicle, and the owner tipped police, the state-run Anatolia news agency said.
“A possible disaster has been prevented,” Gov. Kemal Onal said as he announced the discovery at the site. Anatolia said a witness alleged that an unidentified man parked the vehicle around 6 a.m., saying he had brought goods to sell at the market.
Police evacuated houses and cordoned off the area, and explosive experts defused the bomb in three hours, Police Chief Ercument Yilmaz said.
Yilmaz did not reveal details of the bomb, but Turkish media citing other police sources said sacks of explosives were found, speculating that it could be ammonium nitrate or cheap fertilizer, an ingredient used to make bombs.
Suicide bombers linked to al-Qaida hit Istanbul in 2003 with truck bombs — containing ammonium nitrate-based bombs — killing 58 people in attacks that targeted two synagogues, the British Consulate and a British bank. In February, a court sentenced seven people to life in prison for the bombings.
Begin boilerplate:

Turkey, a predominantly Muslim but secular country is a key NATO ally that provides vital support to U.S. operations in Afghanistan and Iraq through Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, one of the most important U.S. military assets in the region.
End boilerplate.

“Ankara’s Sept. 11 has been prevented,” private NTV television said on its Web site.


Our ‘Friends’- The Sowdis


“If I could somehow snap my fingers and cut off the funding from one country, it would be Saudi Arabia”
On the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, an unsurprising but no less appalling report on how much the Saudis haven’t done to cut off funds to jihad groups.

“U.S.: Saudis Still Filling Al Qaeda’s Coffers,” by Brian Ross for ABC News’ The Blotter:

“When the evidence is clear that these individuals have funded terrorist organizations, and knowingly done so, then that should be prosecuted and treated as real terrorism because it is,” Levey says.
Among those on the donor list, according to U.S. officials, is Yasin al Qadi, a wealthy businessman named on both the U.S. and U.N. lists of al Qaeda financiers one month after the 9/11 attacks.
Al Qadi, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, remains free, still a prominent figure in Saudi Arabia.

  1. * Bin Laden wants ‘caravan’ of ‘martyrs’

    Has he given any thought as to how long it will take to locate and bury the bodies and body parts of his “caravan”? Apart from Ezekiel 38 & 39, Israel and the West should make it very clear that dead muslim “martyrdom operators” will not be buried in infidel cemeteries, but will be taken to the local dump, or some suitable place, to feed the seagulls. Of course the West will continue with its own canard about Islam being a religion of peace hijacked by a tiny minority …

  2. Mullah,

    “tiny minority”. Think about it. That’s all it takes. One Hitler, one Stalin, one Che, one Pol Pot, one Mao, etc etc.

    I hope one day the families of these misguided shaheeds realize OBL stole the lives of their sons and daughters for his own stupid vanity and “religion”.

  3. apologies for the long post below, but as you are publicly active in the war I am looking for suggestions and action from all quarters.

    No doubt you and your commenters read amongst others so with regard to the latest (twin) outbursts from OBL, I am keen to turn the debate in Oz to understanding and tackling this phase of salafi war.

    Those in defence handle our military response so lets leave success in that theatre to them with our quiet support. The rest must tackle head-on the cultural war occurring here and in the countries of our english speaking allies. It is occurring elsewhere but we must make a concerted effort to tackle the habitat that we as Australians understand and wish to protect.

    Councils, state govts, schools, hospitals and other institutions everywhere are receiving unpublicised approaches from home-grown and foreign salafists urging institutional compromise, change and capitulation to islam.

    A few years ago, as you know, the media reported christmas decorations etc as offensive but the source of this proposition was never made public. Universities in NSW are now receiving quiet requests to modify their facilities, services and even their pedagogical methods to accommodate muslims but again the detail is neither publicised widely nor backed up by any evidence fpr change.

    You are also well aware of the taxi, alcohol and guide dogs issue in melbourne, in Canada and the US, these are all tips of the jihadi iceberg. Cultural vandalism by the salafists occurs everywhere and includes subtle changes that many cannot notice immediately. One succesful advance has been to drop into some Australian minds the hazy belief that muslims are actually a race and thus can be victims of racism. You KNOW that has been somewhat successful here and it is taking a while to be dispelled.

    Back to the latest spray from the rather ill-looking OBL. This (like the un-related but themtically connected 16 page spray from Ahmedinejad last year to Bush) is more evidence of AQ turning its page. We are entering the grip of the direct “appeal to the people” for purpose of encouraging them to ‘revolt’. It is naive, historically incorrect, reeks of 60’s marxism and reads like adam gadahn wrote it BUT all that doesn’t matter. It, like the salafists here, is appealing not to the govt but to everyday citizens, many who are young and have the very best intentions of not offending anyone.

    We need very public and constant activity to combat this crap – letters to the editor, clarifications when we hear/see errors being stated on purpose, in blogs, in public, on television. Not meetings online where we all agree with each other, but action.

    Whatever reaches us, whoever creeps out of the woodwork to damage the principles we hold, we must rebut it clearly and truthfully in the ears and eyes of the average person, not the tech-savvy nor the elected representatives. If the salafists want disinformation campaigns (and they do) lets give it to them. We must understand we are not going to change their minds so we must stop them from acting to change ours.

    Note OBL’s words on humiliation and revenge – jihadists cant handle the first at all and are utterly preoccupied with doing the other.

    So we must crank up our public campaigns of ridicule, parody and comedy – we like a good laugh here anyway so that cant be too hard? Salafis are laughing at us now because we are taking them seriously. But that is not really a catch-22 for us as they think because a) we dont give a shit about humiliation – its not sticks and stones; and b) we can laugh our heads off at them and still take them deadly seroiusly – thats our advantage.

    Thats enough from me, I hope that over time you may have more suggestions and that action occurs. Timing is crucial. Action is vital. Come on lets get the bastards.
