New Bin Laden video
anti-war / imperialism |
Saturday September 08, 2007 21:45 by Seán Ryan
A new video from Osama Bin Laden has been released.
Osama has spoken (if it's him). Rumours hit the Net a few days ago that a video featuring Osama Bin Laden would be released over the next few days.
The video released is 26 minutes 27 seconds long.
It's a strange video. Many folks were expecting Mr. Bin Laden to promise some attack that would emulate and rival the September 11th. attack. During the last two months, someone put a billion dollars into the American Stock Exchange, playing a very futile gamble, unless they have insider knowledge. This high risk venture is being termed as 'bin Laden trades.' For this venture to succeed, the American Stock Exchange must tumble by 30 - 50% by the 21st. of this month. Those in the know say look out come the 14th. and some others are pointing to the FED having a meeting on the 18th. http://www.canadafreepress.com/2007/business090407.htm
Bin Laden, as I said, is quite surprising in this video. It's as if he regrets the war he's found himself in. He blasts the system of capitalism and blames it for where we are now. He shines praise on Noam Chomsky, indicating that had Bush listened to him and others like him, that we'd not be in our current predicament.
He claims that the US are practicing polytheism. He even illustrates this with a parable. He tells of a man working in a shop, where he is suppposed to give the money he makes to a certain person. Instead he gives the money to a different person. Bin Laden says that this is what the Americans are doing. Their works are purportedly for God, but that they are to the benefit of another (big business).
Osama points out that when Bush first took the presidency he surrounded himself with war criminals (I'm paraphrasing here), Rumsfeld, Cheney and Powell and that this set the tone for his leadership - it was more to do with the massacre of humanity than the protection of it.
He says that the idea of holocaust is not an Islamic one. He says that unlike others, that the Arab nations would have offered sanctuary to the Jews during World War 2.
The last ten minutes or so are spent trying to convert folks to Islam.
Interesting video. It can be found at: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=bba_1189264533
