2006: Osama Bin Laden "State of Jihad" Speech Declares Total War on Infidel World

Bin Laden's 2006 April Speech -- which I announced was a "surrender" in Iraq -- may have been that, but it was also a declaration of War upon Western civilian populations.

Here, from Dr. Walid Phares, is Bin Laden's Declaration of War 2006. I have a feeling that this will be looked back as another obvious statement of intent by our enemy that we inexplicably chose to ignore.


* One, a long attack on the Cartoons crisis: Blood is needed to cleanse the matter.
* Two, there is a Western war on Muslims and Islam.
*Three, Western policy towards Hamas proves this aggression.
* Four, the United Nations is an infidel and criminal institution.
* Five, there is a Western-infidel aggression against Muslim Sudan. The Black southerners are bandits and the Darfur Blacks are agents of the infidels
* Six, Iraq’s Jihad is to stop future US military bases
* Seven, a cultural invasion is underway: Arab TVs are to be stopped, Muslim liberals to be killed
* Eight, France is to be punished for the female Hijab affair
* Nine, Bosnia’s Muslims were not salvaged by the West
* Ten, The independence of East Timor is a defeat to the Muslims
* Eleven, India and the Hindus are the enemies in Kashmir
* Twelve, Pakistan’s Musharraf is to be killed
* Thirteen, Russia must be punished
* Fourteen: Salman Rushdie is not to be forgotten
* Fifteen: The masses in the infidel lands think like their leaders. Their public (enemies) is responsible
* Sixteen: Calls for Dialogue with the West are to be rejected
* Seventeen: Do not trust the “traitors” including Muftis and moderate clerics
* Eighteen: King Abdallah of Saudi Arabia ignores world realities
* Nineteen: (Western) civilization is attacking ours
* Twenty: It is of the duty of all members of the Umma to offer everything for Jihad, including their lives.

Point 15 is the essential one -- Western civilian populations are again justified as legitimate targets. Point 20 is also an essential one -- according to what I know of the Koran, Bin Laden seems to be correct about this. If we can't get enough traction from within the Muslim community to fight the idea that their duties to Islam include support of Jihad, things are gonna get a whole lot worse.
