Full text: 'Bin Laden' tape: "There is also the fierce attempt to destroy the al-Aqsa Mosque and destroy the jihad and the mujahideen in beloved Palestine by employing the trick of the roadmap and the Geneva peace initiative... The occupation of Iraq is a link in the Zionist-crusader chain of evil. Then comes the full occupation of the rest of the Gulf states to set the stage for controlling and dominating the whole world. For the big powers believe that the Gulf and the Gulf states are the key to controlling the world due to the presence of the largest oil reserves there."

The Road Map is a farce but the Geneva initiative offered a genuine prospect of a political solution of the Palestine issue, which is of course precisely why Bin Laden, Sharon and Bush [and of course let's not forget our own little jackboot Johnny 'Dubya' Howard, the deputy sheriff] will never support it. These fanatical warmongers want only war and more war, which they are getting while the rest of the world looks on in helpless impotence.

Bin Laden continues his two pronged attack on both the Western imperialists and the Arab state collaborators. The speech is effective and is bound to resonate in the Arab and Muslim worlds, and illustrates as clearly as can be how Bush's phony 'war on terrorism' in fact merely ignites and perpetuates the terroristic response.
