FLASH: Osama bin Laden in new video wants Americans to convert to Islam because of the housing bubble and crash (etc). Good luck with that OBL.
Housing bubble. Housing crash. Toxic loans. Mortgage meltdown. Allah!!!

ABC News' Jonathan Karl Reports: ABC News has obtained a transcript of the latest taped message from Osama bin Laden.
He also speaks to recent issues grabbing headlines in the United States, referring to "the reeling of many of you under the burden of interest-related debts, insane taxes and real estate mortgages; global warming and its woes..."
"To conclude," bin Laden says, "I invite you to embrace Islam." He goes on to say: "There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakaat [alms] totaling 2.5 percent.”
