UQ Wire: bin Laden Message To American Allies

Unanswered Questions: Thinking For Ourselves
Presented by…

To The People
That Are Allied With The Oppressive American Government

By Abdullah Osama bin Laden

Peace Be Upon Those Who Follow The Guidance!

The way to security begins by lifting the oppression. It is just to treat others in an equal manner (as they treat us). What happened since the two raids of New York and Washington up to now, like the killing of the Germans in Tunisia and the French in Karachi and the destruction of the great French oil tanker in Yemen and the killing of the Marines in Failaka and the killing of the British and Australians in the explosions of Bali and the last Moscow operation and other operations here and there, all these events are nothing but a reaction and an equal treatment that were carried out by the sons of Islam who stood up to defend their religion and to follow the orders of Allah (pbuh) and His Prophet (pbuh).

What Bush, the Pharaoh of this age, is doing is killing our children in Iraq and what Israel, the ally of America, is doing bombing civilian houses with its inhabitants including old people, women and children with American planes in Palestine, was enough for the sensible of your rulers to stay away from this criminal gang (i.e. American and Israeli administration).

Our people in Palestine have been being killed and have been afflicted with the worst torment for about one century. So when we defend our brothers in Palestine, the whole world was moved and formed an alliance against the Muslims under the false banner of fighting against so-called “terrorism.”

So what's wrong with your governments? Why are they allying with the criminal gang of the White House against the Muslims? Do your governments not know that the criminal gang of the White House consists of the greatest mass murderers of the world?

Take Rumsfeld as an example who was a mass murderer in Vietnam. He killed more than 2 million people let alone the masses that were injured. And on the other hand, you find Cheney and Powell who are responsible for the destruction in Baghdad that even outweighs what the Tataric tyrant Holaco has done.

So what's the matter with your governments that they ally with America in order to attack us in Afghanistan? And in particular Britain, France, Italia, Canada, Germany and Australia.

Australia, which we had already warned not to participate in the aggression against Afghanistan let alone its abhorrent role in splitting East Timor (from Indonesia), ignored our warnings until it woke up at the sound of the explosions in Bali. All the time until then, its government had falsely stated that they weren't targeted.

So if it moved you to see your allies' men killed in Tunisia, Karachi, Faylaka, Bali and Amman, then remember that daily our children are killed in Palestine and Iraq and remember our people killed in the mosques of Khost and remember our people in Afghanistan who were killed on purpose during a weddings celebration. If seeing your killed people in Moscow terrified you, then remember our people you killed in Chechnya.

When will fear, killing, destruction, expulsion, orphaning and widowing remain only limited to us while security, stability and happiness remains only limited to you? This is an unfair allotment. The time has come to share in these matters equally.

Just like you kill, you will be killed. And just like you bombarded, you will be bombarded. Be prepared to receive the glad tidings of what will be bad for you.

By the grace of Allah, the Islamic Ummah (nation) has started to fire at you with its sincere youth, who have promised Allah to continue Jihad with words and swords, in order to defend the truth and to extinguish the falsehood till the last drop of blood.

Finally, I ask Allah to provide us with support in order to defend His religion and to continue on the path of Jihad for His Sake so that when we meet Him, he is pleased with us. He is the only One capable of that and our last supplications shall be that All Praise is to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
