a new bin Laden tape out, nothing much new in it, just the same old "kill the infidels" nonsense. Here’s what struck me:
"People in the West share responsibility for their countries' "war against Islam," said the speaker, who sounded like bin Laden, on the tape broadcast on Al Jazeera television.
The Saudi-born militant said the Darfur crisis in western Sudan and Western efforts to isolate the Palestinian government since Hamas won January elections were part of this campaign.
"Their rejection of Hamas affirms that it is a Crusader-Zionist war against Muslims," bin Laden said."
Is this really Osama? Isn't that first statement a little on the democratic side for him? Well, I guess not really, since we've (American civilians) been on his hit list for quite a while now, you know, since he declared war (in whatever capacity he thinks he has to speak for Muslims in general) on the U.S. and our allies in 1998 (and had been acting as such well before that).
