"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

New tape from bin Laden?

"The United States has attacked Iraq and soon he will also attack Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Sudan. The attacks in Saudi Arabia and Egypt will be against Islamic movements there," said the tape.

The tape delivered by Aadil concentrated mostly on jihad, condemning Muslim governments who have supported the U.S.-led coalition's war on Iraq and the global war that has targeted bin Laden.

Peppered with verses from the Muslim holy book, the Quran, the cassette tape made repeated promises of heaven for those who carried out suicide attacks. "I ask the Muslim women to join jihad by providing food to mujahedeen (holy warriors.) Elders should pray for us. I am proud of those martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Islam."

The tape warned that Islamic movements and governments throughout the Muslim world are under attack.

I like this quote.

"Do not be afraid of their tanks and armored personnel carriers. These are artificial things," he said. "If you started suicide attacks you will see the fear of Americans all over the world. Those people who cannot join forces in jihad should give financial help to those mujahedeen who are fighting against U.S. aggression."

Let's take a look at that, shall we? As for our tanks and APC's, let's ask some of the 'martyrs' who tried suicide attacks on these 'artificial things'. Oh wait they're all dead. And you mean if they start suicide attacks like the ones on Sept. 11th. Since then we have destroyed tha Taliban and now Saddam. Some way of showing our fear. Or maybe the attacks like in Bali? Why don't we ask the SAS troopers on the groun in Iraq how much fear they have.
