Bin Laden: GENOCIDE IN SUDAN MUST NOT STOP. The killing of innocents will continue unababted. "The West is at war with Islam" and calls on his "followers to go to Sudan to fight a proposed UN force." More here
Simon Deng and Manute Bol have insisted that the ongoing genocide was an Islamic jihad perpetuated by the Arab Islamic government of Sudan against the black African Christians and black moderate Muslims of Sudan and Darfur, but the left wing, terror enabling press never report it that way. Never. Go here for my live video interviews with Bol, Deng (here and here), and Charles Jacobs at the Sudan FreedomWalk in New York (you must scroll down).
It's funny [/not] how the West refuses to call this war what it is, an action - or in this case inaction- that is fraught with peril. They can't even bring themselves to call it a war.
Aristotle said it -- A is A.
The speaker on the tape says “the opposition to the Hamas government is proof of the crusade against Muslims.
The speaker repeats his description of a “crusade” against Muslims, pointing to activities in other areas such as Chechnya, Somalia and Sudan, where bin Laden lived in the mid-’90s before being expelled by the Sudanese government.
Bin Laden and other al Qaeda figures use the term “crusaders” to refer to Christians.
He also slammed the Darfur conflict and the international isolation of the Hamas-led Palestinian government as proof of a "war by crusaders and Zionists against Islam." This savage speaks to the humanitarian effort to save the lives in Darfur as a "war against Islam" and "steal the oil?" Savage! China has been "stealing the oil" from Sudanese people as the oil-hungry Chinese fund the Sudan junta. But the call on Muslim fighters to go to Sudan to wage war against "crusader thieves," speaks volumes to the evil of the enemy. Millions are brutally murdered-- brutally --and who is Bin Laden calling to arms? Who exactly? Who wants the rape, murder, slavery to continue? That is our enemy and the enemy of free peoples and peoples that want to be free. More details here
In the message broadcast Sunday, bin Laden also called for a global Muslim boycott of American goods similar to the recent boycott of Danish products after the publication there of caricatures of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad. Bin Laden citing the cartoon jihad is evidence that those prefabricated riots across the Muslim world were a deliberate incitment to violence and another front on the Islamists war on the West. Tigerhawk has more here.
Bin Laden is saying it what it is and what it shall be, and has been saying it, but the West looks away, turns away, the West won't look the truth straight in the eye. Fear is not an option. This is not just about Bin Laden, it's what he represents. Oh and btw, why an audio tape and not a video? He must look like real shit.
The enemy is not one guy, or a handful of nuts. The enemy is the millions cheering after 9/11. Oriana Fallaci said in The Rage and The Pride (written right after 9/11);
From Afghanistan to Sudan, from Palestine to Pakistan, from Malaysia to Iran, from Egypt to Iraq [before we removed the butcher Hussein], from Algeria to Senegal, from Syria to Kenya, from Libya to Chad, from Lebanon to Morocco, from Indonesia to Yemen, from Saudi Arabia to Somalia, the hate for the West swells like a fire fed by the wind. And the followers of Islamic Fundamentalism multiply like protozoa of a cell which splits to become two cells then four then eight the sixteen then thirty two to infinity.
You who are not aware only have to
look at the images that TV brings us every day. The multitudes that impregnate the streets of Islamabad, the squares of Nairobi, the mosques of Tehran. The ferocious faces, the threatening fists. The fires that burn the American flag and the photos of Bush.
[...] Their yells Allah-akbar, Allah-akbar. Jihad-Jihad. .Extreme fringes?!? Fanatical minorities?!? They are millions and millions, the extremists.They are millions and millions, the fanatics. The millions and millions for whom, dead or alive, Osama Bin Laden is a legend similar to the legend of Khomeini. The millions and millions who after Khomeini's death have chosen Bin Laden as their new leader, their new hero.
TV reporter interviewing old man in Nairobi;
Reporter: "Who is, for you, Osama Bin Laden?"
""A hero, our hero."
Reporter:"And what happens if he dies?"
"We find another one," the old man answered, still joyfully. In other words, the one who guides them is only the tip of the iceberg.
Thus, the real protagonist of this war is not Bin Laden. This is a war which is designed to destroy our civilization. Our way of life. The way we live, laugh, love, dress, read.
Saudi Arabia weighing in on capturing Osama, one of their own Wahhabists is laughable. Saudi Arabia where anyone with a Bible in hand or a cross around his neck was (and is) treated like a scum to be put to death.
"Mister Bin Laden, Sir, how much money does Al Qaeda receive from your Saudi compatriots and from members of the Royal Family" - Fallaci
How dare that decrepit "medieval feud which enslaves us with its fucking oil"? More Saudi oppression here.
And the Democrats calling for Bin Laden's capture as though that puts an end to the latest violent battle in the centuries long war is idiotic. And they are taking the American people for morons.
My favorite shrink, Shrinkwrapped writes here;
Jane Harman was on Fox News Sunday this morning and the first topic was the bin Laden tape. Her response was nonsensical (we haven't caught bin Laden because we are bogged down in Iraq) and I decided to parse it (especially because it continues to be used and repeated by Democrats on a regular basis.)
But even that is not the most risible part of the talking point. Most accounts suggest that bin Laden has been hiding either in Pakistan or in Iran. Someone should remind the Democrats that these are both sovereign nations. Are the Democrats really suggesting that we should send troops into Pakistan and/or Iran en masse, uninvited? Are the Democrats ready to declare war on Iran and Pakistan? I briefly comment on the McCarthy firing, as well, since Juan Williams reliably quotes the Dems talking points each Sunday:
I would also ask of the Democrats: Do they really believe that any person who has access to Top Secret, Classified information, should be free to surreptitiously leak such material to friendly reporters when they disagree with a policy? This was Juan Williams position this morning. It is hard to imagine any responsible Democrat agreeing, but it is not as inconceivable as I might have once thought. They should remember that one day they will again inhabit the White House and this kind of legitimization of what once was unthinkable, has a habit of coming back to bite you in unpredictable ways. For those with short memories, I would remind you of the damage a Special Prosecutor, along with sexual harassment laws that were overtly weighted toward the interests of the accusers, did to the Presidency of William Clinton.

Stop the ACLU is covering it here;
Hat tip: Right on the Right I was just starting to think it had been too long since this thug had something to say. Every time people start thinking he is dead, a new tape comes out. So, now he is upset that we didn’t take him up on his truce, and that we are not giving money to Hamas. Therefore, by his reasoning we are waging a war on Islam itself.
PA Pundits comes back with some tells it like it really is - A is A.
We haven’t declared war on Islam even when Islam spouts rhetoric like this.. “we believe every Muslim has the potential to turn into a bomb against the west“.

Where are the voices of moderate Islam speaking out against this? Where is the damn chorus of voices?
UPDATE April 24th: John Bolton swats the fly;
"That's a mark of bin Laden's desperation and certainly won't affect our planning."
