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.

Ya know, I never thought of that one.

Hmmm...

Housing bubble. Housing crash. Toxic loans. Mortgage meltdown. Allah!!!

Man, these are strange days indeed. Gotta run. Gonna go study my koran ya know. Some interesting stuff there about mortgage brokers and bankers and toxic loans I think... Nice fake beard by the way OBL...

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.”

Great, the next thing to happen is that they will be pushing to purchase "US homes" and "Freedom Mortgages" to buoy the sagging home sales. Just like GM and the bushies did after car sales were sluggish in 2001 and 2002. Do you think that Realtwhores will start offering "Employee Pricing" on new homes too....????

The alleged terrorism is a creation of the Zionists and Neocons designed to subjugate the masses. Israel is at the center of all terrorism. The 9-11 attacks were conducted by Israel and the Bush government and that is why there were no Jews in the WTC.

OBL's "convert or die" is no different from a christian missionary, and the attitude the west has towards the middle east. The reason christianity spread to become as popular is it is(or was), is no different from what OBL says now.Most Americans will be too stupid to see this. Islam and christianity are sister religions both based on ignorance and violence. Earth must rid itself of monotheism in order to survive.

OBL was not involved in 9/11, but Bush was.

3deep said...

Exactly where does this "Bin Laden doesn't exist" garbage come from? Do you have some evidence we need to know about?

Look, we couldn't afford this war. I agree. Pre-emptive war is truly against Judeo-Christian principles, I agree. It is unconstitutional to take America to war without a declaration, I agree again.

But, this guy is real enough in the minds of Muslims. And he is one wealthy bastard. And he is increasingly becoming the voice of Islam on earth. Watch and see if any prominent Islamic figures write a retort decrying his latest manifesto. Don't hold your breath.

To be quite frank, 911 was easy. It was a sucker-punch and required no chemicals, germs or nukes. The real concern is what comes next. I have family and friends involved in the intelligence community and disease control and I can tell you, the worst is yet to come - and what we are doing in Iraq will likely have no effect in preventing it.

Trust me. Santa Claus may just leave something nasty in our stocking this year.

Bin Laden definitely caused the housing bubble. If you notice, he was missing from the time all this started until now. Investigative news reporters will no doubt discover he was seen in Florida during the days of "Flipping". The run up of homes in Phoenix Arizona, San Diego, and California locations in general and paperwork will be found that (like Cramer) he sold all his holdings in Real Estate before the great collapse. As a world leader, he no doubt had inside information ahead of the average Joe.

I remember that movie Dragon Slayer. The dragon dies and falls into a lake at the end of the movie. The old king, who had nothing to do with slaying the dragon, sticks his royal sword into the dragon and is victorious.

OBL reminds me of the same thing. OBL is just a terrorist with limited power but he needs to be related to a big market crash to give perception that he has power. He wants to give the arab world the perception he took down the market with a terrorist attack.

Sad part is the real pig men responsible for the debt mess might let him do his attack for a political cover -- this is what worries me.

The Iraq war is an inside Islamic conspiracy, its not the Americans fighting over there, it’s a clever plan by Sadam to gain international support.
The war is being orchestrated by an elite Iraqi cabal called Neo-raqs.

Oh, BTW.. I saw OBL in the mall the other day, he’s not as tall as described,
Was thinking of turning him in for the $25 mil reward, than I realized it would be in dollars, and after reading here on HP that the dollar is a depreciating asset (even Ron Paul says so) I decided to let him go on to his little film studio.

OK, for real, remove OBLs beard from the image doesn’t he look like RP.
Hmmm. identical eyebrows.

We may be on to something big here.

How many of you that think Osama is a Republican tool have actually spent any time with a Pakistani or Afghani refugee? The people that have fled the violence and Islamic rule have a different take on things. The hatred of Americans related to me by my associate is beyond what we can comprehend. Make no mistake, the hatred, the motivation and the will is there to destroy the West. They just lack the means, which will be eventually sold to them for the right price, if it hasn't already.

More people die everyday from car accidents, shark attacks, gator attacks, lightning, or plain stupidity than from terror attacks. And you are scared sh*tless from suppositions of the same "intelligence" that let 9-11 happen?

Former head of the Soviet KGB and his competition is a wannabe cowboy who is afraid of horses and AWOL from Vietnam with Daddy's help and bankrupted every business venture he became involved with.

Putin wonders: are the American people this easily fooled? I will make Stalin proud!

Master chess player versus naif checkers idiot.

CONNECT THE DOTS AND BE AFRAID!!

Putin has already in the past 4 years imprisoned Russian oil executives and nationalized Russia's oil industry and has told where BP and Chevron can stick their partnership agreements because after all, we chose not to compensate damage or honor contracts for Russia's investments in Iraq after we "shocked and awed." Hell, just last month Putin claimed the North Pole as sovereign Russian territory and everything underneath it.

Putin is also arming Iran, Syria, and Venezuela with slick weaponry, and backing its rubles with gold.


The Bear is in the woods again, and as the US Navy use to say during the Cold War,"the bear can swim." Only this time, the Bear has a score to settle and it sees multiple vulnerabilities in the Eagle and will bid its time while watching the Eagle suffer as it cannot flutter its wings like it use to.

I agree. It is all hype to scare a lot of sheeple, however look at the border issues. Unfortunately they don't need to swim, all they need to do is walk right in from Mexico. And now they don't even have to walk. Bush has made it even easier. Now they can hop on a semi and just drive right in. It is not Osama that is going to bring us down, it is our own greed that will eventually lead us to ruin. As was said in an earlier post, all the radicals need to do is sit back and watch.

Other terrorist acts done by Bush while he was owner of the Texas Rangers and then became governor of Texas:

1993 WTC bombing

1995 Oklahoma City Murrah building bombing

1995 Khobar towers bombing Saudi Arabia

1996 Summer Olympics bombing in Atlanta

1998 US Embassy bombings in Kenya & Tanzania

2000 USS Cole bombing in Yemen


You see, that is proof Bush has a history of committing terrorist acts and blaming it on fringe groups.

Spain subway bombing was a CIA plot to get Spain the remove its troops from Iraq. Uh, I think...

Amazing how right before important political events in the US we have

1) orange alerts
2) "increased chatter"
3) Osama tapes.

I think the Zawahiri tapes are real. I'm dubious about the OBL tapes.

and let's see the "Surge Commander" Petreus is doing his report to Congress just next week. Remember the tape right before the 2004 election? ("selection").

Osama, the real Osama, used to go on and on with flowery Koranic preaching and exegesis, because his message was directed at Muslims in the 'ummah'.

His mind did not concern American or Western political or cultural ideas---such things are known to him but alien in spirit and in language. He wants to be seen as a new Caliph.

And yet now, the messages from ""Osama"" are directed in content at Westerners and Americans, precisely the thing necessary to 'excite' and 'anger' Bush's base of evangelicals and jingoists......

"We're gonna convert you to Islam...boo! fear! we're infidel Mohamadeans and we hate Amurica!"

Exactly like in 2004. It is an image out of central casting of what Republicans think Osama is like.

And they're adding the "new low taxes" message just after Democrats gained control in Congress?

That is just bullsh*t. A real Muslim fundamentalist isn't going to want converts who are in it for low taxes, such greedy materialist motives are precisely what the Islamic fundamentalists hate about Western culture, and the dissipative monarchs and plutocrats in their own Arab world, whom they want to overthrow.

And I love the excuse for why it "looks fake", "Osama's shaved and wearing a fake beard.

And notice how much pre-release publicity there was, and how quickly the authorities "confirmed" the identity of Osama?

al-Zawahiri talks like the real thing, not Osama.

No I'm not a crazy conspiracy theorist, I do think that al_Qaeda really did the 9/11 attacks, and it wasn't the Jews' or Bush's fault.

3. Is the search for OBL and the war in Iraq being prolonged by the US for whatever reason?
4. Is their god stronger than yours?

You get four (4!) wives, all the guns you want to own, the right to take and keep slaves (if they are jews or christians) and a 2.5 percent flat tax on your gross. Not such a bad deal, and you get to kill anyone you want as long as they are not of the Umma. (some limitations apply).
