bin Laden backs Democrats' Climate Initiatives

It looks as though Osama bin Laden wants to take action against Global Warming. The big question is whether he will hire Al Gore to take his case to the world. Reporters hope to question bin Laden on his views about the Cap-and-Trade proposals now before Congress. But, so far, he has refused to grant any interviews, preferring, instead, to voice his complaints about the world through the president of the US.

Bin Laden blasts US for climate change

Jan 29, 7:46 AM (ET)

By SALAH NASRAWI

CAIRO (AP) - Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming, according to a new audiotape released Friday.

In the tape, broadcast in part on Al-Jazeera television, bin Laden warned of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring "the wheels of the American economy" to a halt.

He blamed Western industrialized nations for hunger, desertification and floods across the globe, and called for "drastic solutions" to global warming, and "not solutions that partially reduce the effect of climate change."

Bin Laden has mentioned climate change and global warning in past messages, but the latest tape was his first dedicated to the topic. The speech, which included almost no religious rhetoric, could be an attempt by the terror leader to give his message an appeal beyond Islamic militants.

The al-Qaida leader also targeted the U.S. economy in the recording, calling for a boycott of American products and an end to the dollar's domination as a world currency.

"We should stop dealings with the dollar and get rid of it as soon as possible," he said. "I know that this has great consequences and grave ramifications, but it is the only means to liberate humanity from slavery and dependence on America."

He argued that such steps would also hamper Washington's war efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The new message, whose authenticity could not immediately be confirmed, comes after a bin Laden tape released last week in which he endorsed a failed attempt to blow up an American airliner on Christmas Day.

Sir No Slappz - The stealthy bin Laden peeks out from his cave long enough to suggest that the world should stop dealing with the dollar...

"to liberate humanity from slavery & dependence on America!"

How odd is that (?) coming from a religious fanatic who's religion has placed Captives of Islamic Wars
in perpetual bondage, and raped their women as "sex slaves" for the last 1400 years?

The Ultimate Hypocricy!

reb,

The ultimate hypocricy! Yes.

Just imagine bin Laden without the the products America and the West.

Without us he would have had to deliver his bombs to the World Trade Center by camel. Of course, without modern engineering, the World Trade Center itself would have been much smaller. If it had been designed by muslims, it would have been a large tent.

The cars and trucks bin Laden has used for travel? Seems his crew likes small Toyota trucks.

Video/audio communications with the world? Those technologies and products are from Japan, Europe and America.

Without them, he would have to depend on imams shouting his message from minarets.

Perhaps some muslim did make the knife Khalid Muhammad used to remove Daniel Pearl's head.

Knives, suicide vests and imams. Is anything else produced by muslims? No. Not oil. They have to hire Westerners to handle that for them.

The Three Most Important Exports from Saudi Arabia to Europe and North America are Mosques, Madrassa & C.A.I.R., plus the Oil that funds the first three.

Energy Independence from OPEC must be our first priority, not Obama's Wind & Solar. - reb

Bin-lyin will back anything that he can use as a propaganda tool against Western interests.

Funny that he lives in a cave somewhere, while Westerner enjoy liberty, luxury and abundant opulence. And just like Omama, and his failing administration, he blames everyone else for the ills of the world, while simultaneously blocking the progress on humankind.

The only product arising form the islamic world is hate.

Winfred,

It's been said that osama has a serious kidney problem that might require dialysis. If this is true, osama might die of kidney problems in his latest cave.

If he dies, Obama will get some kind of credit for the death. but being Obama, he will probably attend osama's funeral.
