Hot on the heels of his last release, OBL ups the ante with a new anthem aimed at Uniting the Ummah. Obviously concerned over the failure of Sunni Arabs in Iraq to hook up with Al Qaeda's imported head choppers, OBL was very open in his most candid single to date.
"I advise myself, Muslims in general and brothers in al-Qaida everywhere to
avoid extremism among men and groups," he said, saying leaders should not build
themselves up as the sole authority, and that instead mujahedeen should follow
"what God and his prophet have said."
OBL's Al Qaeda is being destroyed faster than he can reload it and is a sign that going to Iraq for jihad is now a dumb thing to do. OBL was open to admit this in his 007 Super villanesque way.
"Everybody can make a mistake, but the best of
them are those who admit their mistakes," he said. "Mistakes have been made
during holy wars but mujahedeen have to correct their mistakes."
Mistakes like killing anybody in town because thugs found a dvd of Baywatch? Using intolerant Islamic Courts, Islamic Police, and of course, Islamic executioners. Mistakes? Like the fact that people in Anbar and provinces all over Iraq are saying no thanks to OBL's dark, 8th century version of a caliphate? Rebelling against his inspired pocket theocracies?
Or maybe turning those towns into something more hellish than the californicating Great Satan could ever do with casino's, strip bars and churches?
Al-Jazeera did not say how it obtained the tape
Maybe, it's time for the Great Satan to meet with those cutting edge Arab journalists and make a deal. Without or without duress is fine either way. Time to find him, kill him and release the commemorative boxed set.
