To OBL: Stop killing Muslims!

The message to OBL: Stop killing Muslims!

Once upon a time, you were a hero in Pakistan. When you and the other mujihideen faught the Russians, Pakistanis used decorate their homes with your posters. Then to executed 911! Did you? If you did, it gave America a reason to attack Afghanistan and destroy Iraq? How did this help Islam, Muslim?

Now your clones attack Pakistan and the Pakistani army. You have become very unpopular in Pakistan. Hmas, Hizuballah and Iran are popular in the Middle East. They don't attack Muslims and defend themselves.

Pakistan is the citadel of Islam. Your attacks on Pakistan harm Pakistanis and Muslims. The attacks on Pakistan have been on the common people of Pakistan. What does this achieve?

More than 5000 families in Pakistan suffer because of your attacks on the army. Your biggest help would be to help them and others build bridges, roads, dams and electrical grid stations.

Killing women and children is not "jihad". What is wrong with you?

You have made bombastic statements against Israel. Yet you attack civilians, women and children in Pakistan. You are supposed to defend Muslims. Your attacks weaken Pakistan.

If you have a problem with the policies of the leaders, why do you attack mosques, and markets? If you are not doing the attacks, you should ask your number 2 to disavow the attacks, condemn them and track the culprits and stop them from attacking Pakistan.

Bin Laden marks Israel anniversary with combat vow Fri May 16, 2008 2:23pm BST

DUBAI (Reuters) - Osama bin Laden vowed in an audio tape to mark Israel's 60th anniversary to continue to fight the Jewish state and its allies in the West.

The al Qaeda leader, who has placed growing emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said it was at the heart of the Muslim battle with the West and an inspiration to the 19 bombers who carried out the attacks on U.S. cities on September 11, 2001.

"We will continue, God permitting, the fight against the Israelis and their allies ... and will not give up a single inch of Palestine as long as there is one true Muslim on Earth," he said in the message, posted on an Islamist website on Friday.

Bin Laden said Israel's anniversary celebrations were a reminder that it did not exist 60 years ago, and had been established on land seized from Palestinians by force.

"This is evidence that Palestine is our land, and the Israelis are invaders and occupiers who should be fought," he said in the tape, which was addressed to the Western public.

The Saudi-born militant also said that decades of peace initiatives had failed to establish a Palestinian state, and the West had proved time and again that it sided with Israel.

"The participation of Western leaders with the Jews in this celebration confirms that the West backs this Jewish occupation of our land, and that they stand in the Israeli corner against us," he said. "They proved this in practice by sending their forces to southern Lebanon."

He also said Western media had over the years painted Israelis as victims, and the Palestinians who had been displaced from their land as terrorists.


The authenticity of the tape could not immediately be verified but the voice sounded like bin Laden's.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Arye Mekel dismissed the tape as the ravings of a terrorist.

"We don't pay any attention to the threats of a crazy terrorist. The time has come for him to be caught and to be punished for all his crimes," Mekel said.

A U.S. official in Washington said the tape was being reviewed to establish if it was genuinely from bin Laden but the content came as no surprise.

"There's been a recent spate of terrorist messages in which Israel has been a central theme -- one that al Qaeda believes resonates in the Muslim world," the official said.

In a message on March 20, bin Laden urged Muslims to maintain the struggle against U.S. forces in Iraq as a path toward "liberating Palestine."

Al Qaeda has vowed attacks on Jews both inside and outside Israel and regularly expresses support for the Palestinians.

Al Qaeda is widely blamed for a suicide attack on an Israeli-owned hotel in Kenya and a simultaneous failed attempt to shoot down an Israeli charter jet near Mombasa airport in Kenya in 2002.

But despite calls by al Qaeda supporters for the militant network to establish a presence in Palestinian areas, U.S. intelligence officials see no evidence it has done so.

Analysts say it faces competition for turf, in particular in the Gaza Strip, from the well-established Hamas.

Bin Laden said the Palestinians in Gaza were being subjected to a "slow death" and blamed U.S.-allied Egypt for helping Israel to besiege the overcrowded Hamas-run area.
