Osama Bin Laden: The complete works
Someone thinks it's a good idea to collect every statement Bin Laden ever made and publish it in a Book. Name of the book: Message to the World. Sort of like the Jihady version of Mein Kampf. Here is what he will say in it. Osama bin Laden wants the United States to convert to Islam, ditch its constitution, abolish banks, jail homosexuals and sign the Kyoto climate change treaty. [...] His terms for America's surrender appeared after the September 2001 suicide attacks and include demands that amount to the abandonment of much of western life. Alcohol and gambling would be barred and there would be an end to women's photos in newspapers or advertising. Any woman serving "passengers, visitors and strangers", presumably anyone from air stewardesses to waitresses, would also be out of a job. The West must "stop your oppression, lies, immorality and debauchery that has spread among you" and has become the "worst civilisation witnessed in the history of mankind". And if you think this book will be in any way not- biased in favor of Bin Laden, well, take a look at this: The book's introduction is written by Prof Bruce Lawrence who teaches Islamic studies at Duke University, North Carolina and describes the terrorist as "one of the best prose writers in Arabic". Can't wait.
