The buzzing of the Cicadas--the howlings of the liberals--Happy May Day!

May has arrived and the Cicadas are emerging from their holes in the ground .... joining in a mad dash to mate like wild satyrs before their short lifespan is up. Littering lawns with their discarded carcasses--completely oblivious to the political gibberish going on in the human world around them.

Is is a strange time, with wild vibrations and noises filling the air--so it is not unexpected that the liberal rants are reaching almost harmonic frequencies.

Let us start with something truly worthy of Nutwatch 2004--the "abuse" of Iraqi prisoners that people felt necessary to photograph. This shouldn't have happened and the people who did it will pay. As anyone who has served in the military will tell you, this is behavior completly unbecoming and should and will be punished.

To get hysterical about this and what the muslims think is to be ignorant of the treatment of US prisoners by the same Iraqis during the past two wars. Most of the U.S women taken prisoner during the wars were raped and beaten .... nearly all prisoners both male and female were tortured to the point of having limbs broken .... the radical islamists that hate us beheaded Danny Pearl, and one of them killed about 14 tourists in Pakistan. Hizbollah tortured and killed a CIA station chief, Marine Lt. Col. and a host of Israelis.

The radical islamists are savages and while we hope we should be better, they are going to try to kill us all or die trying. Yes, they will use this--but who really cares? NOTHING short of us killing every last one of them will make them stop hating and planning to attack us.

But, this "abuse" shouldn't have happened. But just as their are different types of lies and consequences, their are different levels of "abuse"--and i will contend that a few nude pictures and some guy balancing on a beam doesn't equal rape and torture.

What ever possessed them to take pictures?

To try and somehow blame this on the Bush administration is laughable .... this was an Army command problem that I predict will be dealt with in overkill mode. It is the thiness of the liberal left's offerings that leads everything back at the feet of George Bush--however weakly connected.

Finally, I am amazed that my esteemed colleague would have lack of a better source than the butcher of Chappaquiddick as a source for a quote. Yes, the democrats had a field day yesterday ranting at the great photo op that has come back to haunt the President's political team like the ghost of Mary Jo Koepechne that has been reporting floating above Teddy Kennedy's head on gin-soaked evenings in Georgetown.

But there is something wrong with a murderer and a former democratic KKK member spitting and shaking on all the news channels with ignorant quotes that sounded like the DTs and would be treated as such anywhere but in Washington.

While I am a Republican who thinks the war in Iraq was a mistake--to equate it to Vietnam shows an appalling lack of historical understanding and is another example of the hysterical left trying to grasp at any image to tarnish President Bush.

What we are experiencing is predictable and only time will tell whether the Iraqui's make it or not. With even John Kerry suggesting now WMDs may be found in a couple of months though, I'd advise my hysterical liberal friends to take a deep breath and wait it out with me.

I certainly wouldn't stoop to the point of quoting the butcher of Chappaquiddick--who may end up being remembered as the most morally-bankrupt politician since Caligula.

39 Principles of Jihad

Jonathan D. Halevi in Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center at the Center for Special Studies (C.S.S)

Al- Farouq website affiliated with Al-Qaeda published a new book recently under the name “39 ways in the sake of the Jihad” written by Mohammad Bin Ahmad Al-Salem. According to the author’s preface, the book was completed on 19 July 2003 in Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh.

The author’s name, Mohammad Bin Ahmad Al-Salem, does not appear in other writings, suggesting the possibility that the author preferred to conceal his identity from the Saudian government, which under American pressure has thightened its grip considerably in recent months it’s grip on Islamic radical organizations and operatives.

At any rate, it is evident from Al-Salem’s manner of writing that he represents the “Salafi” outlook, originating from Ibn Taymia and Mohammad Abd Al-Wahhab’s school of thought as well as other Saudian and Palestinian scholars affiliated ideologically with Al-Qaeda and the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

“The Islam is under over-all attack waged by infidel forces”, the author asserts and finds in this the deep motive that urged him to write his book. The enemy, implying the U.S. and the Western world (including Israel), has taken over Moslem countries one after the other, thus pushing Islam into a defensive position.

The Islamic commandment of Jihad (holy war against the infidels) is the cure to the illness of the Islamic nation and in the eyes of Allah it is the first and foremost commandment for all Moslems striving to achieve victory and introduce the rule of Islam worldwide. There are many facets to Jihad, facilitating every Moslem including the needy or physically handicapped, to find their appropriate way to carry out the commandment of Jihad.

Al-Salem enumerates in his book 39 principles of the Jihad which one can take part in, and by doing so he gives the readers an opportunity to comprehend the broad meaning of the notion of Jihad as interpreted by Moslem scholars. The Jihad is not only an expression of violent action against the infidels, but comprises diverse acts every Moslem is commanded to perform in sustaining the Jihad.

All these acts are based on the religious fundamental of reward and punishment. The Moslem who carries them out wins a reward equivalent to that of the Mujahid (The Moslem fighter) who participate in battle. On the other side, neglecting them will bring about retribution from God in this worild and in the next.

The favored activities which sustain Jihad have various aspects of which the most important one is gathering money and donations for the Jihadi organizations and their fighters on a private basis or by various Islamic associations. While asserting, “Money is the lifeline of the Jihad” Al-Salem unintentionally points at its weak spot.

Other aspects of Jihad mentioned in Al-Salem’s book are compatible with the “Daawa” activity conducted by radical Islamic organizations, established allegedly to assist innocent civil infrastructure supporting the Jihad. In most cases these organizations possess separate and unique educational system that supplys generations of believers in the Jihad and organizational frameworks spread throughout society and serving as it’s ideological and logistic backing.

Al-Salem designates to the scholars an important role which is not confined to setting the ideological foundations for the radical organizations but also includes courageous action namely refraining from submitting to government dictates. Thus, he gives legitimacy to Jihad against infidels as well as defiance of local Moslem regimes that do not comply with the religious fundamentals set by the radicals.

Ai-Salem’s book sheds light on the close ties between the political and ideological echelon of the Islamic organizations and their military wings and clarifies the importance of the civil infrastructure in terrorist activity. Once again the remarkable role of the Saudi and Palestinian scholars in supporting terrorism is exposed. They still serve as the ideological sources of radical Islam and the concept of waging constant holy war against the West and the Free World.

As follows the 39 manners of the Jihad noted by al-Salem in his book:

1. Preparing the mind to Jihad - Every Moslem has to obey the call for the Jihad against the infidels out of sheer belief and intention.

2. Sincere desire to attain martyrdom – Al-Salem, basing his arguments on Sheik Abdullah Azzam (the spiritual leader of Osama Bin Laden, killed in Afghanistan in 1989), emphasizes the importance of sincere endeavor in order to attain martyrdom from Allah. Thus, the believer can perform the commandment concerning the “preparation to the battle” (I’dad Al-‘oda) and gain a reward from Allah equivalent to the Shaheed’s reward (72 virgins and close proximity to the Divine presence in Heaven) even though he may die from natural causes.

3. Participating in Jihad – Every Moslem has to take an active part in the holy war against the infidels, being ready to self-sacrifice for the sake of Allah. Participation in the Jihad is the most distinguished action in the eyes of Allah.

4. Financing Jihad – Moslems can take part in Jihad by giving donations dedicated to the Jihad and the Mujahideen. The donation’s value is determined by its quality and destination and not only by the amount of money given.

5. Supplying the fighters’ needs – Believers who are unable to take part in the Jihad (for instance women and handicapped) can perform their duty by supplying the Mujahideens’ needs in money and equipment. By doing so, the donor is considered Mujaheed and deserves the same reward.

6. Taking care of the Mujaheed’s family - Believers who supply a Mujaheed’s family needs is considered Mujaheed and deserves half of his reward. On the other side, neglecting this may bring him misfortune and death by the hands of God.

7. Assisting the fallens’ families - by supplying the special needs of the orphans and widows.

8. Assisting the families of the prisoners and the wounded fighters - by supplying their necessities.

9. Collecting funds for the Mujahideen – Money is the lifeline of the Jihad. It’s importance stems also from the action of gathering donations that arouse the spirit of the Jihad in the believers’ hearts. There are many ways of carrying out this duty: in mosques, public venues, family gatherings, charity events, monthly donations or by urging the wealthy to open their hands to the Mujahideen.

10. Granting charity donations to the Mujahideens – who enjoy priority in Islam.

11. Financing medical treatment for the wounded Mujahideen

12. Praising the Mujahideen and their deeds – It is essential to educate the Islamic Nation on their values and to see them as a model for imitation.

13. Encouraging the Mujahideen to stick to their way – in order to strengthen their spirit and morale.

14. Protecting the Mujahideen – by refraining from publishing any information that may serve put them in jeopardy or spoil the spirit of Jihad. Al-Salem warns the readers of the Arabic daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat (Saudi orientated, published in London) which conducts the “crusader – Jewish scheme” against Islam by publishing false information directed to destroy the steadfastness of the Islamic Nation and the Mujahideens’ spirit.

15. Publicizing the disgrace of the hypocrites and defeatists – who strive to weaken the Islamic Nation.

16. Preaching to Jihad – Great rewards are promised to every Moslem who drives other believers to commit the duty of the Jihad.

17. Giving good advise to the Mujahideen – Can be translated in many ways including supplying essential information on the enemy and his plans in order to be well prepared.

18. Maintaining secrecy concerning the Mujahideen

19. Prayers to Allah for the sake of the Mujahideen and for the defeat of the enemies.

20. Holding special prayer to avert misfortune and to strengthen the Moslem community.

21. Publishing the Mujahideens’ activities in order to arouse the notion of solidarity and strengthen proud and hope among the believers; Praise the ideal of self sacrifice for the sake of Allah and break the media siege imposed by the enemy. There are varied ways recommended for distributing the information praising the Jihad, including Internet websites and forums, distribution lists, circulating publications in public places (for instance mosques, schools), sending SMS etc.

22. Participating in publishing books on the Mujahideen

23. Publishing Islamic laws supporting the Jihad – This mission falls on the shoulders of the Moslem scholars who have the duty to guide the Islamic Nation in the light of Jihad and to call believers to join the Mujahideen and pray on their behalf. Their followers are demanded to urge the scholars to act. In this context, Al-Salem glorifies the role of Sheik Hamoud Al-Oqala Al-Shu’aybi (radical Saudi scholar, died 2 years ago, backed the Taliban regime and al-Qaeda) as a worthy scholar who strived to strengthen the Jihadi organizations worldwide by publishing Islamic laws justifying suicide attacks and the holy war against the infidels.

24. Maintaining constant contact with scholars and preachers in order to update them on the current happenings in connection with the Mujahideen. The believer is asked to assist the scholars who are on certain occasions under government pressure or influenced by false information. They have to update them regularly with reliable information, to support them and urge them to persist with the call for Jihad.

25. Physical training – Moslems who designate themselves to become Mujahideen have to gradually improve their physical fitness. Al-Salem elaborates in his book the recommended training program which includes improving the heart and lungs endurance and beefing up ones muscles etc.

26. Acquiring shooting skills – Al-Salem calls Moslems not to be satisfied only with tuition of the Jihad but to prepare to actually perform this duty by acquiring shooting skills.

27. Practicing swimming and riding horses – Riding Horses, explains Al-Salem is still relevant in the battlefields of Afghanistan, Chechnya and Iraq.

28. Learning first aid skills – to help injured Mujahudeen (splicing broken bones, performing infusion etc.).

29. Learning the doctrine of Jihad – Al-Salem recommends dozens of books, articles and Islamic laws published in recent years by Moslem radical leaders and scholars most of them Saudis by origin (Osama Bin Laden, Hamoud Al-Oqala Al-Shuaibi, Abd Aziz Jarbou’, Yusouf Al-‘ayyiri, Naser Al-Fahed, Ali Al-Khudier, Suliman Al-Olwan and more). One of them is the Al-Khudier’s Islamic law that justifies using mass destruction weapons against the U.S.

30. Supplying refuge and shelter to the Mujahideen

31. Expressing hostility and hatred toward infidels – A call for reconciliation or co-existence with the infidels might weaken the Mujahudeen.

32. Constant action to achieve the release of all prisoners - held in enemy jails, by all means.

33. Distributing current information on the prisoners in order to keep their morale high.

34. Performing electronic Jihad – Al-Salem attributes paramount importance to the Internet as a component of Jihad. He urges believers to join Jihad by participating Internet Forums to defend the Islam and Mujahideen, to preach Jihad and encourage Moslems to learn more about this sacred duty. The Internet affords an opportunity to reach vast target audiences and respond swiftly to false allegations. Computer experts are asked to use their skills and experience in destroying American, Jewish and secular websites as well as morally corrupted websites.

35. Alienation of infidels – Believers in other religions have to be isolated from Moslem communities to prevent them from committing hostile activity.

36. Educating the young generation to revere Jihad and the Mujahideen – The children, asserts Al-Salem are the “fuel” of the next stage of confrontation with the infidels. Parents have the duty to educate them to revere Jihad and the Mujahideen and to prepare themselves mentally for self-sacrifice for the sake of Allah. Al-Salem recommends the believers to tell their young stories about the life of the prophet Mohammad, his associates, the great Moslem conquerors and the Mujahideen in our time. In addition it is recommended to display to the children Jihadi films and taped sermons which praise martyrdom.

37. Abandoning luxury – which might weaken the spirit of Jihad.

38. Boycotting enemy’s commodities – as part of the economic Jihad.

39. Refraining from employing foreign workers – from enemy countries.

Bin Laden Letter Analysis from Al Muhajiroun

An analysis of the Message from Osama Bin Laden
to the People of Europe, Not the POLITICIANS of the West

“Praise be to Almighty God; Peace and prayers be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and companions.”

“This is a message to our neighbours north of the Mediterranean, containing a reconciliation initiative as a response to their positive reactions.”

Sheikh Osama’s address was to the people of Europe and not to its leaders. He starts off by saying to our neighbours in the north Mediterranean, which would seem strange, considering he is thought to be in the Mountainous regions of Afghanistan or Pakistan. What Sheikh Osama is implying here is that when he speaks, he even represents the Muslims in the regions neighbouring Europe, showing that he clearly considers all Muslim countries as one land (one Country) at the exclusion of all kuffar (non-Muslim) countries, which he considers as others.

The Messenger Muhammad (saw) said “The Muslim Ummah is one (Wahida) at the exclusion of all others, their land is one, their war is one, their peace is one…”

Sheikh Osama wants to instil in the minds (psyche) of the Muslims worldwide that we are united by the bond of belief and together we have one neighbour called ‘Europe’.

“The believers are a brotherhood” [EMQ Surah Al-Hujarat 49:10]

Sheikh Osama speech came at a crucial time; especially as the Arab League, a farce of an organisation that it is, was embarrassing itself in front of the world’s media by showing it was incapable of organising a summit to discuss the assassination of Sheikh Ahmed Yaseen. Amidst this chaos Sheikh Osama came out like the true Lion of a man that he is, to speak with calm and tranquillity, as the voice of truth, and the champion of the cause of the Muslims.

His message showed that he very much up to date with the affairs of Europe. He is aware that in Europe people carry many varying views (unlike in the US) and from among the different Governments in power, some are; pro-USA and some are anti-USA. He knows that the majority of the people of Europe are against America and its policies in Muslim land.

This message has been clearly sent to cause serious thoughts, and even rifts amongst the ranks of the kuffar. It is now decision time; do you continue to support USA? or do you stop? The people of Europe must decide, as sheikh Osama has distinguished them from their corrupt governments. The making of dissent is clearly there between the people of Europe and their governments, and this is not dissimilar to the actions of a Sahabi (Companion) of the Messenger Muhammad (saw) called Naim ibn Masood ibn Amir (ra).

Naim (ra) said “O Messenger of Allah! Let me deal with them” he was speaking about the Jewish tribe of Banu Quraidah and the Quraish, who had formed an alliance at the time of the battle of the Ahzab (the Confederates), whereby the Muslims of Madinah were under siege.

Naim (ra) went to Quraish and said “Banu Quraidah may betray you”, and then he went to Banu Quraidah and said “Quraish may betray you and leave you, and then Muhammad will slaughter all of you” he said “ask Quraish to give you some of their own noble people” in turn he then went to Quraish and sad “If they (Banu Quraidah) ask you for any men don’t give them any, as they will hand them over to Muhammad” these words very soon caused distrust and rifts amongst the alliance and we know the rest is history; the Muslims became victorious. So this strategy is not new ‘Divide and Rule’.

However some people have commented that Sheikh Osama's last by calling for peace and reconciliation, is retreating. This is far from the truth, don’t believe for one moment that this was a soft message, in fact it is the strongest, the most dangerous message given by Sheikh Osama bin Laden to date, hence why the whole world is talking about him.

“Praise be to God; praise be to God; praise be to God who created heaven and earth with justice and who allowed the oppressed to punish the oppressor in the same way”

Sheikh Osama is referring to the Ayahs (verses) in the Quran where Allah (swt) says

“And if you punish (your enemy), then punish them with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you endure patiently, verily, it is better for As-Saabirin (the patient ones).” [EMQ Surah An-Nahl 16:126]

“The sacred month is for the sacred month, and for the prohibited things, there is the Law of Equality (Qisaas). Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him. And fear Allâh, and know that Allâh is with Al-Muttaqûn (Pious)” [EMQ Surah Al-Baqarah 2:194]

Sheikh Osama then goes on to quote the regions where many horrific atrocities are occurring to Muslims. In latter part of his letter when he says “Which are represented by the destruction and killing of our kinfolk in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine”

“Peace upon those who followed the guidance (right path)”

This is how the Muslim greets the non-Muslim (kafir), and this the Sunnah (prophetic tradition) of the Messenger Muhammad (saw).

The Messenger Muhammad (saw) sent a letter to Hercules the king of the Romans saying “Bismillah (in the name of Allah) from Muhammad the son of Abdullah, the Messenger of Allah, to the Heracles of the Roman. Peace upon the one who follows the guidance, I call you to Islam, “aslim taslam” embrace Islam and you will be saved, or have a treaty (covenant of security) with the Muslims you will be saved”

Sheikh Osama has revived the Sunnah of calling to the disbelievers to Islam by airing this message openly public in the worldwide arena.

“In my hands there is a message to remind you that justice is a duty towards those whom you love and those whom you do not. And people's rights will not be harmed if the opponent speaks out about them”

Sheikh Osama statement here, he sent shame and humiliation upon all those Arab leaders who have not fulfilled the duty of pointing out the injustice of the west and its allies against Islam and the Muslims. Rather they have degraded themselves by calling the disbelievers ”your highness, your majesty, your honour ” etc, and have even stoop to the level of kissing them. Sheikh Osama never made the disbelievers (kuffar) above the deen (Islam) and he highlighted the true meaning of Justice in Islam, which is to be fair and just according to the Laws of Allah (swt).

“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allâh. Verily, Allah is well acquainted with what you do.” [EMQ Surah Al-Maidah 5:8]

“The greatest rule of safety is justice, and stopping injustice and aggression. It was said: Oppression kills the oppressors and the hotbed of injustice is evil. The situation in occupied Palestine is an example. What happened on 11 September [2001] and 11 March [the Madrid train bombings] is your commodity that was returned to you.”

In other words eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. The US bombed Sudan and Afghanistan, the Muslims bombed America, The US and her allies bombed Palestine and Iraq, the Muslims bombed Madrid. In other words the message to the kuffar (disbelievers) is don’t think by hitting different Muslim countries it makes any differences, as all the cases are linked, you hit one Muslim land you hit all Muslim land. USA, UK and her allies started this war well before 9/11 and 3/11 with is foreign policy of adding and abetting the gangsters of the world causing oppression in Muslim land, as well as being perpetrators of crimes themselves.

“It is known that security is a pressing necessity for all mankind. We do not agree that you should monopolise it only for yourselves. Also, vigilant people do not allow their politicians to tamper with their security.”

“Having said this, we would like to inform you that labelling us and our acts as terrorism is also a description of you and of your acts. Reaction comes at the same level as the original action. Our acts are reaction to your own acts, which are represented by the destruction and killing of our kinfolk in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine.”

Sheikh Osama is informing the masses that what they hear from the media is distorted. How comes when the Muslims kills it is a terrorist act? Whilst if the US and her allies kill it is not? Besides the people need to look to the cause of the problem and not the symptom (i.e. Muslims fighting back). America is lying when it say they are in Iraq and in Afghanistan to create democracy and freedom.

“The act that horrified the world; that is, the killing of the old, handicapped [Hamas spiritual leader] Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, may God have mercy on him, is sufficient evidence.”

“We pledge to God that we will punish America for him, God willing.”

American will be held accountable for the murder of Sheikh Yassin even though Sharon carried out the act, by proxy of its support for the illegal pirate state of Israel. Sheikh Osama’s statement here is to strike fear in the heart of the Americans, and to provide ‘Hamas’ a new challenge; to take lessons and to shift the war locally to the worldwide stage, and not to think that Israel is the only place where you can find an Israeli or America is the only place where you will find an American. These countries (Israel and America) have citizens scattered all over the world, from where they sponsor the killings and the atrocities occurring to the Muslims in Palestine. Especially as the Americans know that the Jewish lobby sends billions to Israel to continue in its systematic displacement and killing the Muslims in Palestine.

The other purpose of this threat is to provide satisfaction in the hearts of all the believers.

“Which religion considers your killed ones innocent and our killed ones worthless? And which principle considers your blood real blood and our blood water? Reciprocal treatment is fair and the one who starts injustice bears greater blame.”

Sheikh Osama is saying to the European, from you own logic how can you say we are equal or lesser than you.

Even Jack Straw came out and said “These are people (i.e. Al Qaeda, etc) who do not fear death”

Muslims do not fear death as we know those killed in the struggle to make Islam the highest are in Jannah (Paradise), whilst the disbelievers (kuffar) are in the Naar (hellfire), hence why Sheikh Osama says later in his letter “For those who reject reconciliation and want war, we are ready”

“As for your politicians and those who have followed their path, who insist on ignoring the real problem of occupying the entirety of Palestine and exaggerate lies and falsification regarding our right in defence and resistance, they do not respect themselves.”

“They also disdain the blood and minds of peoples. This is because their falsification increases the shedding of your blood instead of sparing it.”

“Moreover, the examining of the developments that have been taking place, in terms of killings in our countries and your countries, will make clear an important fact; namely, that injustice is inflicted on us and on you by your politicians, who send your sons - although you are opposed to this - to our countries to kill and be killed.”

The bombings in non-Muslim lands should not be viewed any different from what the Muslims are facing everyday in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq; Muslim blood is not made from water (i.e. cheap). The bombings in Bali, Madrid, New York are all due to the politicians and their foolish policies. The oppression the non-Muslims are now facing in their land is a direct result of their own government’s policies.

“Therefore, it is in both sides' interest to curb the plans of those who shed the blood of peoples for their narrow personal interest and subservience to the White House gang.”

If they (the disbelievers) want security in their country, they need to tackle their government.

“We must take into consideration that this war brings billions of dollars in profit to the major companies, whether it be those that produce weapons or those that contribute to reconstruction, such as the Halliburton Company, its sisters and daughters.”

Sheikh Osama mentioned Halliburton, as the phrase goes ‘if you want to agitate the fire, spill the oil’, Halliburton have taken 20% of the contracts in the reconstruction of Iraq. Even the vice president Dick Cheney has shares in this company. Halliburton were mention to cause rifts with the other companies involved with them. 70% of the reconstruction contracts have gone to American companies, whilst the remaining 30% are shared out by companies from the rest of the World.

“Based on this, it is very clear who is the one benefiting from igniting this war and from the shedding of blood. It is the warlords, the bloodsuckers, who are steering the world policy from behind a curtain.”

“As for President Bush, the leaders who are revolving in his orbit, the leading media companies and the United Nations, which makes laws for relations between the masters of veto and the slaves of the General Assembly, these are only some of the tools used to deceive and exploit peoples.”

“All these pose a fatal threat to the whole world.”

The United Nations (UN) has demonstrated that it is nothing more than an organisation used and abused by the gangsters of this world. They have nothing to bring out peace in the world (i.e. Somalia, Srebrenica, Palestine, Kashmir), as they really do not have any powers other than what their slave master USA gives them.

“The Zionist lobby is one of the most dangerous and most difficult figures of this group. God willing, we are determined to fight them.”

The jihad will continue against the greedy occupiers.

“Based on the above, and in order to deny war merchants a chance and in response to the positive interaction shown by recent events and opinion polls, which indicate that most European peoples want peace, I ask honest people, especially Ulema, preachers and merchants (daiees), to form a permanent committee to enlighten European peoples of the justice of our causes, above all Palestine. They can make use of the huge potential of the media.”

The jihad has many fronts; there is jihad by the sword, by the wealth and by the tongue (i.e. using the Media), Sheikh Osama wants to take away from the Arabs their main cause which is ‘Palestine’ as they have never tackled this issue from an Islamic point of view. The scholars, the daiees (propagators of Islam) need to come out and speak out openly and publicly and give the Islamic verdict and defend actions like the bombings and attacks on 9/11, 3/11, Bali, Tanzania and Kenya, USS Cole, etc.

That is why there is no war without politics and no politics without war. In other words jihad and politics are synonymous, and tongue sometimes can be sharper than the sword.

The Messenger (saw) said “O Hasan (bin Thabit), continue with your poetry, your dispraise of the enemy hurts them more than the arrows” Hasan said “I will continue”

“The door of reconciliation is open for three months of the date of announcing this statement”.

”I also offer a reconciliation initiative to them, whose essence is our commitment to stopping operations against every country that commits itself to not attacking Muslims or interfering in their affairs - including the US conspiracy on the greater Muslim world.”

“This reconciliation can be renewed once the period signed by the first government expires and a second government is formed with the consent of both parties.”

Sheikh Osama is speaking directly to the Spanish government, just in case they turn back on their statement to remove their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

“The reconciliation will start with the departure of its last soldier from our country.”

The reconciliation will only start once the last soldier leaves Muslim land. Until then the bombings by Sheikh Osama and the Muslims will continue.

“The door of reconciliation is open for three months of the date of announcing this statement.”

Sheikh Osama by offering the peace first, has shown the hypocrisy in the European governments. They came out straight away and said “we will never deal or have peace with terrorists” yet they deal with Gaddafi, dealt with the IRA, Mandela, the Arab dictators, and even with Iran and Pakistan.

“For those who reject reconciliation and want war, we are ready.”

In some ways Sheikh Osama knows they (European Government) will not accept his offer; as they all have huge deals with the USA, but he has left the problem with the European people.

The western governments will never stop interfering into Muslim affairs or stop humiliating the Muslims. The USA will never come to a deal with the Muslims, yet all they are asked to do is to stop killing Muslims. The message of Sheikh Osama is very shrewd; to reject his offer is not just to reject him and Al Qaeda but the Muslims as a whole. This is proven by the following ayahs in the Qur’an.

“Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you till you follow their Deen (way of life)…” [EMQ Surah Al-Baqarah 2:120]

“…And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your Deen (way of Life) if they can…” [EMQ Surah Al-Baqarah 2:217]

The matter is now black and white, quite clear for all to see. Even those who used to disagree with sheikh Osama in the Arab world before now agree that he has a point.

“As for those who want reconciliation, we have given them a chance. Stop shedding our blood so as to preserve your blood. It is in your hands to apply this easy, yet difficult, formula. You know that the situation will expand and increase if you delay things.”

“If this happens, do not blame us - blame yourselves.”

The message from Sheikh Osama was so polite, giving the European people one last chance. There is a parable in the Arabic language “if you want to do something nasty to your enemy, be nice to him”. The disbelievers may hate Sheikh Osama, but they should know the truth does not hurt even if it comes out from the mouth of the enemy.

“A rational person does not relinquish his security, money and children to please the liar of the White House.”

“Had he been truthful about his claim for peace, he would not describe the person who ripped open pregnant women in Sabra and Shatila [reference to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon] and the destroyer of the capitulation process [reference to the Palestinian-Israeli peace process] as a man of peace.”

“Reality proves our truthfulness and his [George Bush's] lie.”

Only a fool would trust George Bush, who sides with any gangster who wants to kill Muslims like, Sharon and Putin, Vajpayee, etc.

”He also would not have lied to people and said that we hate freedom and kill for the sake of killing. Reality proves our truthfulness and his lie.”

“The killing of the Russians was after their invasion of Afghanistan and Chechnya; the killing of Europeans was after their invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan; and the killing of Americans on the day of New York [reference to 11 September] was after their support of the Jews in Palestine and their invasion of the Arabian Peninsula.”

“Also, killing them in Somalia was after their invasion of it in Operation Restore Hope. We made them leave without hope, praise be to God.”

The Muslims have attacked only in retaliation. Sheikh Osama reminded the people of what happened to the Americans in Somalia, when they were kicked out after their so called Operation Restore Hope. The Americans are full of hollow promise; they will never restore anything in Afghanistan or Iraq.

“It is said that prevention is better than cure. A happy person is he who learns a lesson from the experience of others.”

“Heeding right is better than persisting in falsehood.”

The message is serious, not a joke, Sheikh Osama has given details of the reconciliation, including time, date and period. The clock is now ticking…and there is no way to negotiate with Osama bin laden. It means there are 90 days left for the kuffar, and the 91st day will be for the Muslims; “O countries of Europe you have been warned, you have none to blame but yourself”

“Peace be upon those who follow guidance.”

The letter ends with Sheikh Osama leaving ‘the ball in the court of the Europeans’ either they accept the deal or they face the consequences, this is their last chance.

May Allah protect Sheikh Osama and the Muslims wherever they may be. Ameen!


On The Backdrop Of Bin Laden's Truce

Here's an interesting editorial from English Al Hayat

On The Backdrop Of Bin Laden's Truce
Selim Nassar Al-Hayat 2004/04/24

The Arab world has not witnessed a dark series of events as the bloody one which sank the region, during this month, with killed and wounded people. These events start with Abdulaziz Al Rantissi's assassination, and end with hundreds of killed and wounded in Qut, Fallujah, Najaf, Karbala, and Basra.

This pushed the American civil Governor Paul Bremer to accuse Al Qaeda. At the same time, members of the Ruling Council condemned the terrifying method practiced by those who are infiltrating into Iraq because they choose their victims to be unarmed civilians to spread chaos and anger. The Times thinks that the Basra explosions were the direct reaction to terminate Scotland Yard's campaign in which Pakistani youths were arrested. The London police chief that a number of chemical bombs in their homes. Although the results of investigations are so far unknown, however, the British government was alert against any terrorist attack.

The British media agrees on saying that the relative peace in Basra during the occupation year was behind targeting its citizens by Al Qaeda. The reason behind these massacres is to make the ability of the British forces doubtful in keeping security and to convince the citizens of the necessity of establishing armed militias for protection. That is why the British commander expects an increase in the attacks against his soldiers. He is afraid that the fall of victims will push the opposition in the House of Commons and the masses to ask for the withdrawal from Iraq. Since Tony Blair will not surrender to such pressures, the reflections of Basra's events will certainly affect its political future inside Britain. Knowing that Osama bin Laden included Britain in the truce which he offered to the European countries in an attempt to isolate the U.S. and to turn the European peoples against their governments.

The European capitals dealt cautiously and ignorantly with bin Laden's proposal which was broadcast on Al-Arabia and Al-Jazeera. They saw in it a stupid attempt to negotiate with a terrorist.

Pakistani President Musharraf thinks that the method of hot pursuit used by the Pakistani army to Al Qaeda members in the mountainous regions prohibited it from moving freely to sell opium and to communicate with other cells. For these, and other reasons, bin Laden offered the idea of interim truce to regroup the scattered ranks. Washington says that the Taliban reorganized and their fighters started sneaking from Pakistan into Afghanistan.

Word in Islamabad is that the American soldiers do not object to this recurrence, because it would facilitate locating Osama bin Laden. However, Musharraf counts this possibility out because he knows that the Pakistani intelligence agencies are penetrated by fundamentalist officials who sympathize with Taliban. That is why he insists on following the plan of invading the mountainous regions to surround Al Qaeda's forts to find bin Laden.

After a week of offering the truce, bin Laden's supporters carried out a suicide bomb against an administrative compound of public security in Riyadh.

The Arab newspapers saw in the Riyadh event a noticeable change in choosing an official target at a time when Al Qaeda used to target civilian residential compounds.

In this operation, bin Laden wanted his group to feel that he was capable of harming the agents chasing them. A reporter in Riyadh thinks that Al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia is facing a conflict similar to that which Islamic groups faced in Egypt when it resorted to chaos to justify the violent operations.

Last week, a group of the extremist right British National Front protested in London. The protesters repeated anti-Islamic slogans after burning a picture of bin Laden and asked to close the mosques in Britain.

In Madrid, the newspapers, radios, and television networks broadcast a videotape which the police found in the apartment of the group accused of Madrid's attacks. Armed men appeared in the tape threatening Spain with Jihad (holy war) if it did not pull out its forces from Iraq and Afghanistan.

European leaders wonder about the goal of inciting their popular bases against them to take negative measures of which only those seeking the clash of civilizations benefit!

French Writer has had enough

By Jean-Christophe Mounicq

Jean-Christophe Mounicq is a French writer specializing in economics, world politics and the French political scene. His book "Understanding World War IV" will be published later this year.

The morning of Jan. 29, upon hearing about the attack on a bus in Jerusalem, I did not experience the expected emotion. It seemed such a "normal" thing, and I have not enough tears to shed for people I do not know.
The next day, on Jan. 30, I read an article about one of the victims -- Avraham Belhassen, 26 years old, a young father -- and realized that I could tolerate no more. I can no longer tolerate terrorist folly, Islamist hatred, the passivity of Muslims, the blindness of the West.
Following the attacks in Madrid, this feeling struck me again. The reaction of the Spanish people, cringing in fear before the Islamist claim of responsibility, bothered me even more. I can no longer tolerate such cowardly Munich-like behavior that leads inevitably to dishonor and war.
The reaction of the European media and political class to the elimination of Sheikh Yassin -- the master of hate and terrorism, and one who had called for the murder of Jews -- pushed me over the edge. I can no longer tolerate descriptions of the monster responsible for hundreds of deaths and thousands of wounded as a "spiritual leader," a poor "paralytic in a wheelchair." I can no longer tolerate murderous, barbaric Islamist hatred.
I can no longer tolerate the electoral victories of Islamists in Algeria, Turkey or France. I can no longer tolerate the indifference of Muslim leaders and the majority of Muslims to the suffering of non-Muslims. I can no longer tolerate their affected statements or their perpetual self-victimization.
I can no longer tolerate the double game of Yasser Arafat, the Saudi princes or Pakistani leaders. I can no longer tolerate watching Muslims dance with joy, in the Palestinian territories or in Paris, following attacks on the World Trade Center or an Israeli bus. I can no longer tolerate their anti-Semitism, anti-Christianism, anti-Buddhism or anti-Hinduism.
I can no longer tolerate those who hate liberty but take every advantage of it. I can no longer tolerate Islamist lack of respect for secularism and equality, between men and women, Muslims and others. I can no longer tolerate their lack of respect for the cultures of the very countries that shelter them. I can no longer tolerate the multiplication of veils on women in the streets of Paris.
I can no longer tolerate attacks on French officials, abusive complaints against the police, terrorism against judges, the ban against teaching about the Holocaust in schools, or the brutalization of male doctors who treat Muslim women in hospitals. I can no longer tolerate burning cars in Strasbourg and synagogues in Bondi. I can no longer tolerate catcalls when the Marseillaise is played during games at the Stadium of France. I can no longer tolerate the cries of "death to Jews" in their demonstrations or "death to Christians" written on walls.
I can no longer tolerate concealing the massacres of Christians and Jews in Islamic countries, Copts in the Middle East, of one-and-a-half million Orthodox Armenians in Turkey at the beginning of the last century, as well as a million-and-a-half Christian Sudanese at its end. I can no longer tolerate Muslim ethnic cleansing in Kosovo or Palestine. I can no longer tolerate Islamist totalitarianism.
I can no longer tolerate the relativism and masochism of a West incapable of recalling its own history other than to denounce it. I can no longer tolerate comparing the Crusades to jihad, when the Crusades were nothing but a parenthesis in the history of Christianity while jihad is an integral part of Islam.
I can no longer tolerate the cowardice, weakness and mediocrity of the majority of Western leaders, or the unwillingness of Westerners to affirm their own values and the superiority of liberty and democracy over all other principles and systems. I can no longer tolerate the inability of Europe to recall its Judeo-Christian heritage.
I can no longer tolerate taxes that the European Union transforms into subsidies for the Palestinian Authority or that France transforms into arms for Saddam Hussein. I can no longer tolerate paying the maternity bills for women ready to sacrifice their infants as suicide bombers or for teaching children hatred on the West Bank.
I'm going to pray in the memory of Avraham, pray that his death and those of so many others might finally open the eyes of the cowards in the West who refuse to face the truth. I'm going to pray for Westerners to understand that the war on terrorism is in reality a war against Islamism, and that Islamism is gaining ground among Muslims.
I'm going to pray that moderate Muslims might organize demonstrations against the terrorists just as Corsicans and Basques have demonstrated against their own terrorists. Pray that Islam, which is entering its nuclear era, might become neither conqueror nor warrior, but rather adapt to modernity before it is too late.
