I have never been curious to read up on what Bin Laden has to say to us...until now. As you know, he came out with yet another video message, this time looking all young with his hair dyed.
For the most part the media has correctly reported the story, and all agree that Osama's message is full of leftist talking points. As Gateway Pundit pointed out, one would think Keith Olbermann was the speech writer.
In this post, I will summarize the main non-religious points of his message and in subsequent posts I will breakdown the Islamic rhetoric he uses in the message. Is he preaching his 'own brand' of Islam? Or is it true Islam? How would a worldwide Islamic empire that he preaches look like?
I believe Adam Gadahn (shown below) probably had a lot to do with the scripting of his message. After all, Adam is an American and he thinks he knows how to influence American minds.
"..Bush talks about his working with al-Maliki and his government to spread freedom in Iraq but he is 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."
"Among the most important items contained in Bush's speeches since the events of the 11th is that the Americans have no option but to continue the war. This tone is in fact an echoing of the words of neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Richard Pearle, 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. (Mentions burning at the stake, Hitler's Germany, Spanish Inquisition, Native American murders, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.)"
“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 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.”
"The war was entirely unnecessary, as testified to by your own reports. And among the most capable of those from your own 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."
"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. This 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. "
- Vietnam War and Kennedy
"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-Qaida wasn't present at that time, but rather, those corporations were the primary beneficiary from his killing."
- Environmentalism and Global Warming
"And with that, it has become clear to all that they (leaders of Democratic countries) 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."
"The 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."
"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 are 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 the grim face of this global system.
