Osama bin Laden's Latest Audiotape

April 8, 2003 11:07 PM

AP has translated excerpts from the latest Osama bin Laden audiotape.

O Muslim Brothers, let us promise to devote our lives to martyrdom in the way of Allah. America has attacked Iraq and soon will also attack Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Sudan. You should be aware the kafirs cannot bear the existence of Muslims and want to capture their resources and destroy them.

Get up and raise your weapons against America and Britain. If you hesitated today, you will be ashamed in front of Allah. The war in Iraq has two purposes to capture the Islamic world and to secure Israel. ...

America has decided to eliminate all Islamic movements, (and) kill their religious leadership. Let us get them out of Arabs' land. For this purpose, the jihad is the only way because they have targeted Iraq after Afghanistan. You should avenge the innocent children who have been assassinated in Iraq. You should avenge the demolished houses of Palestinians. I tell you to act upon the orders of Allah, be united against Bush and Blair and defeat them through suicide attacks so that you may be successful before Allah. ...

It is a great pity that we are flattering the American troops and are apologizing for them. Beware, Afghanistan and Palestine are already in the custody of America and if this story is not given an end, we shall lose all the Muslim countries. ...

America wants to take revenge for Somalia. America is a cowardly country. If you start suicide attacks, you will see the fear of Americans all over the world. One of the slaves of America is (President Hamid) Karzai in Afghanistan because he supported non-Muslims over Muslims. Pakistan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi are also agents of America. There is no difference between the Karzai of Riyadh and Kabul. All of them have been imposed upon you and jihad against them is your duty. ...

I ask Muslim women to join the jihad by providing food to the mujahedeen. The elders should pray for us. I am proud of those martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Islam. O God, give the Muslims success.
