Bin Laden blames French "injustice" for abductions-TV

Reuters AlertNet - Bin Laden blames French "injustice" for abductions-TV


DUBAI, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden said the kidnapping of five French nationals in Niger last month had been prompted by France's unjust treatment of Muslims, in an audio message aired on Al Jazeera television on Wednesday.
"How is it right for you to occupy our countries and kill our women and children and expect to live in peace and security?" a speaker who sounded like bin Laden said in the message directed to the French people.
"The equation is clear: you are killed as you kill and abducted as you abduct, and as you damage our security we damage your security."




Wait, I am confused, I thought they only attacked those who intefere in thier internal affairs. :ssst:

WTF are you talking about?


I'm speaking directly to the years of folks here claiming that we were attacked because of our meddling in the middle east.


I often responded how it was more due to thier rejection of our non islamic societies.


This is evidence that I was indeed right.

I'm conducting a study, I'm going around threads to see if every topic eventually melts down into a conservative/republican vs liberal/democrat debate instead of staying on the topic. It hasn't melted yet but Rev is trying hard to melt it. Get em' Rev!

That's cool, I'm hitting the little "!" and letting the staff sort it out. I find it funny how you attack me the thread starter when the other guy was the one who derailed it. You should practice what you preach.

What the hell? This is evidence that you were wrong! The alleged-Bin-Laden-on-tape specifically cited instances of meddling in the middle east.

Does anyone else roll their eyes whenever "Bin Laden" claims something on a new audio tape? I mean, come on, what reason do we even have to believe that these tapes are real? Immediately after 9/11, he was a huge publicity hound, appearing on video as often as he could...then the videos suddenly stopped in December 2001 with no explanation. Since then, there has only been a single video of Bin Laden (who acted very differently than Bin Laden c. 2001) and some audio tapes.

I think the most plausible explanation is that Bin Laden has been dead or incapacitated for years, and whoever makes these audio tapes is a phony.

UBL has been dead for years. IMO, he was killed at Tora Bora, or died later of wounds he received in that battle.

I think he's dead as well, btw, who do you think is making the tapes.

Well, the French are in Afghanistan. However, if anyone is deluded enough to think that fundamentalist pan-Islamists would let bygones be bygones if they were left to their own devices...

Dude, France and England have been screwing around in the middle east a lot longer than we have. The French have troops in Afghanistan, and the French aren't exactly friendly to Muslims in their country.
