"As for the English, I say to them: Blair has brought
destruction upon you, to the center of London, and he will have more of it,
Allah willing. Oh the peoples of the Crusader coalition, we have offered
you, at least, to stop your aggression against the Muslims. We have offered
you... The lion of Islam, the mujaheed Sheik Osama bin Laden, may Allah
protect him, has offered you a truce, so you will leave the lands of Islam.
Did Sheik Osama bin Laden not tell you that you could not dream of security
before we live it as a reality in Palestine and before all the infidel
armies leave the land of Muhammad? But you have made rivers of blood in our
countries, so we blew up volcanoes of rage in your countries. Our message to
you is clear and unequivocal: You will not be saved unless you withdraw from
our land, stop stealing our oil and our resources, and cease your support of
the corrupt (Arab) rulers.
"Oh Americans, what you have seen in New York and Washington, and the
casualties you witness in Afghanistan and in Iraq, despite all the media
blackout, are nothing but the casualties of the initial clashes. If you
continue the same policy of aggression against the Muslims, you will see,
Allah willing, horrors that will make you forget what you saw in
Afghanistan... I mean, in Vietnam.
"A fact that Bush, Rice and Rumsfeld conceal from you is that there is no
way out of Iraq, other than immediate withdrawal, and that any delay in
making this decision means nothing but more dead and casualties. If you
don't leave today, you will definitely leave tomorrow, but with tens of
thousands of dead, and many more crippled and wounded. The same lies they
said about Vietnam, they repeat today about Iraq. Did they not say that they
would train the Vietnamese to manage their own affairs, and that they defend
freedom in Vietnam?"
