The bin Laden Tape

As I'm sure most of you are aware, the new bin Laden tape is quite the buzz of late. I'm equally certain that most are aware, that bin-Laden has come out in support of John Kerry in this election, using almost verbatim the words of the Democrat's top spin-monger, Michael Moore and Kerry's own talking points (Gee, they must be so proud). On a side point drop by the Middle Ground and have a look at Kat's take on this all.

Osama has attempted to remodel his image. He's attempting to present himself as a moderate voice in this time of turmoil. He's trying to say, "See, I'm not such a bad guy. I'm simply trying to avenge the immoral actions of your government, trust me." How easy it would be to allow oneself to be lulled into complacency, to think, "see if we leave them alone, then they'll leave us alone." It would be easy, if you have the wits of a gnat that is.

Are you all so immersed in your partisanship that you do not see the facts that are staring you in your face? The man's reinvention of himself proves that we are indeed winning this war. In portions of the tape not aired on Al-Jazzeera, bin-Laden laments the crushing effects our actions have had on his organization. This false conciliatory tone is nothing more than a plea for us to back off so that he can rebuild his network so he can continue his war against the infidels, namely us. To back off now would cause the inevitable extension of this war. It would allow our enemy to recoup his losses and reestablish bases where they have been destroyed. It would mean flushing the blood sacrifice of our men and women in uniform down the toilet and following it with a liberal helping of more.

In short there will be no peace as long as bin Laden and his Wahhabi ilk haunt the peripherals of society, pouncing any time they spy a weakness; avenging things they perceive as wrongs, but waiting to do so for decades or generations. These people breed hate and have no hint of forgiveness. They pour these traits liberally into their children; growing their hatred and intolerance from the moment they are born. The thing they hate is us; our freedom and our insistence on an individual's right to freedom of religion.

How can anyone in good faith walk into a polling place and cast a ballot for John Kerry knowing that to do so would be to follow the wishes of one such as bin Laden?

Thanks for turning me on to Kat's Blog. I still can't believe how many people Moore has suckered.

I wouldn't put too much into a thought that Bin Laden could effect the elections. There is also an alternative theory that Bin Laden wants the President re-elected to further the hatred America has gained for ill or good around the world.

Here's another Bin Laden theory from the New York Post.

November 1, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - Osama bin Laden warned in his October Surprise video that he will be closely monitoring the state-by-state election returns in tomorrow's presidential race — and will spare any state that votes against President Bush from being attacked, according to a new analysis of his statement.

The key passage of bin Laden's diatribe means that any U.S. state that votes to elect Bush on Tuesday will be considered an "enemy" and any state that votes for Kerry has "chosen to make peace with us."

The statement in question is when bin Laden said on the tape: "Your security is up to you, and any state that does not toy with our security automatically guarantees its own security."

According to translators, bin Laden used the Arabic term "ay-wilaya" to refer to a "state". A warning to every U.S state separately. If bin Laden were referring to a "country" he would have used the Arabic word "dawla."

Further translations say, "...any U.S. state that will choose to vote for the white thug Bush as president, means that it chose to fight us, and we will consider it an enemy to us, and any state that will vote against Bush, means that it chose to make peace with us and we will not characterize it as an enemy."

I don't know the ligitimacy of this, but it makes you wonder...

I've heard that as well. I doubt however that any terrorist would be willing to kill himself for any place in some of the red states. I mean I can just see it in the news now:

"A terrorist detonated a car bomb in Natrona Wyoming today. Besides the terrorist, officials report the death of a sage bush, two jack rabbits and a sheep. Local resident Cody Brassert is quoted as saying 'some ferner blowed up my out house'."

Seriously though, by restricting himself only to red states, that removes all of the juicy targets from the list... NYC, DC, San Fran, LA, Seattle, etc... I doubt he'd forego the ease of massed casualties that the population density of those places provides.

So while he did word it that way, it's only his attempt at election engineering. I seriously doubt that he'd restrict his activities to the rural states that are sure to go red, there's not enough "yield" to make it worth his while.

If you're looking for a primary motivation for why Osama Bin Laden might desire a Kerry presidency, look no further than Kerry's campaign contributors. Among them are Florin Krasniqi and Hashim "Snake" Thraci, two top members of the Al Qaeda-affiliated "Kosovo Liberation Army."

With a Kerry Presidency comes a withdrawal of US troops from the former Yugoslavia, and a rejuvenated Kosovar Muslim terrorist movement, once again backed by American airpower against innocent Serbs, to complete the establishment of a sort of "Balkanistan," a radical and violent Islamic state in southeastern Europe, complete with already established logistical drug and weapons smuggling networks. Just what Osama Bin Laden needs.

Islamofascism is spreading into Europe fast enough without another Democrat President to speed it along....
