And now we have Al Qaeda chiming in...

<br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/08/04/world/main759245.shtml">As if on cue</a><!--EZCODE LINK END-->, a new Al Qaeda video tape has been released, warning of more terrorist attacks. I found this particular statement interesting:<br><br><!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>"Blair has brought to you destruction in central London, and he will bring more of that, God willing," al-Zawahri said in the tape, which was excerpted by the pan-Arab satellite channel. </em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--><br><br>Did he mean this literally?<br><br>Further on in the article, it states that this is blaming Blair for continuing to keep troops in Iraq and supporting the U.S., but I have not been able to find a transcript of the tape to put that quote in context.<br><br>Is this more conditioning of the U.S. in the preparation for another MIHOP attack? <p></p><i></i>

Osama's handler

Postby Peachtree Pam » Fri Aug 05, 2005 4:40 am

This is a reference by John Leonard to Webster Tarpley's new book, "9/11 Synthetic Terror":<br><br>"Tarpley's book has a chapter named "Islamic Fundamentalism: Fostered by U. S. Foreign Policy." It's a policy going back to the 19th century British Arab Bureau, crown purveyors of divide and conquer tactics, who hit on xenophobic fundamentalism as the tool to make the Arabs impossible partners for alliances with any of Britain's rivals. <br><br>"Poster boy" Osama bin Laden is only the latest product of this policy. Alternative writers in the West are quick to point out the demagogic effect his image has on Western publics. Few of them realize the deeply cynical obverse of the covert strategy: feeding the Arabs on the poison pills of false hopes in a terrorist hero. <br><br>Yet Arab admiration for Osama has remained platonic. Anthropologists long ago noted the Arab tendency to vent feelings in words rather than actions. Many Muslims felt bound to fight in Afghanistan against the atheist Soviet occupier, but the BBC's Terror Myth documentary recounts how bin Laden and Zawahiri utterly failed to mobilize real Arabs to the way of terrorism against innocent citizens. Tarpley adduces evidence that Zawahiri is probably bin Laden's handler from MI-6. ...." <p></p><i></i>

Transcript of Ayman al-Zawahri video of 4/8/05

Postby Byrne » Fri Aug 05, 2005 9:20 am

I found this transcript provided by BBC Monitoring of Ayman al-Zawahri video of 4/8/05, on web-page:<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4746157.stm">news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world...746157.stm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>Check also this page:<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4747559.stm">news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4747559.stm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br>and the statement "But the tape is not being seen as conclusive proof al-Qaeda's leaders were involved in planning or executing the July bombing attacks on London. " <br>Hang on, say that again!! I distinctly remember Jack Straw & others stating, a few hours after the attack, that the attacck "....bore all the hallmarks of al-Qaeda". It seems that it is conveniently al-Qaeda when the 'War on Terror' spring needs ratcheting up, but when 'al-Qaeda' state that the London attacks are associated with the UK's & US's foreign policy, then the attacks & al-Qaeda may not be linked!!<br>It is getting more difficult for them to keep the story together! (Oh, just annouce a few more 'TERROR' arrests....)<br><br>& what about the story at:<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4746835.stm">news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4746835.stm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br>where the US New York Police Department are providing more info than the UK police?<br><br><br><br><br>Text of Ayman al-Zawahri, broadcast by al-Jazeera television on 4 August 2005. <br><br> As for the British, I tell them that [UK Prime Minister Tony] Blair has brought you destruction in central London, and God willing, will bring more destruction. <br><br>O nations of the crusade alliance, we proposed that you at least stop your aggression against the Muslims. The lion of Islam, mujaheed sheikh Osama Bin Laden, may God preserve him, offered you a truce to leave the house of Islam. <br><br>Has sheikh Osama Bin Laden not informed you that you will not dream of security until we live it in reality in Palestine and before all infidel armies leave the land of Muhammad, may peace be upon him? <br><br>You, however, shed rivers of blood in our land so we exploded volcanoes of anger in your land. <br><br>Our message to you is crystal clear: Your salvation will only come in your withdrawal from our land, in stopping the robbing of our oil and resources, and in stopping your support for the corrupt and corrupting leaders. <br><br>What you have you seen, O Americans, in New York and Washington and the losses you are having in Afghanistan and Iraq, in spite of all the media blackout, are only the losses of the initial clashes. <br><br>If you continue the same policy of aggression against Muslims, God willing, you will see horror that will make you forget what you saw in Vietnam. <br><br>The truth which [US President George W] Bush, [US Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice and [US Defense Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld hide from you is that the only way out from Iraq is immediate withdrawal, and any delay in this decision will only mean more deaths and more losses. <br><br>If you don't leave today, then you shall inevitably leave tomorrow but after scores of thousands of fatalities and double that number of disabled and wounded people. <br><br>They are repeating with regard to Iraq the same claims and lies they uttered about Vietnam. <br><br>Did they not tell you that they would train the Vietnamese people so that they would run their own affairs themselves, and that they were defending freedom in Vietnam? <br><br><br> <p></p><i></i>
