Bin Laden eulogy - Al-Zawahiri vows jihad

2011-06-08 19:43

Dubai - Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda's long-time number two, has threatened in a video eulogy to Osama bin Laden to pursue his late leader's jihad against the West, SITE Intelligence Group reported on Wednesday.

"We will pursue the jihad until we expel the invaders from Muslim lands," he was quoted as saying in a eulogy for bin Laden who was killed in a US raid in Pakistan on May 2.

"The man who terrified America in his life will continue to terrify it after his death," he added in the video message titled The Noble Knight Dismounted, which SITE said was posted on jihadist online forums on Wednesday.

    Since when do muslims own the land on earth? Over the centuries they (the muslims) have destroyed all the great civilisations of this world by their barbaric invasions - Afghanistan was once a beautiful thriving nation called Persia until the muslim invaded raped and pillaged and conquered it by violence. Iraq was called Mesopotamia and was once a great thriving centre of intellectual activity was destroyed by muslims invaders. India was a thriving hub of jewels and spices and beautiful temples - all pillaged and destroyed by muslim invaders. Even the lands of the Roman empire - look what they did in Egypt - once of the greatest most advanced civilisations - they country is nothing like its former glory today. Now they want to destroy another great civilisation (USA and the free world) with their barbarism and savage behavior. If you are anti-american then you should realise the americans are the only thing between the muslims and you - if they win you all will be converted forcefully to islam - history doesnt lie people. Know your history - read the koran and see for yourself what the "religion of peace" really is about.

      Yes please do read the Quran and see what Islam is all about. What is the purpose of your life? To gather and hoard jewels and gold, to eat yourself to cancer with spices, to worhip statues of stone or idolise a man or go into commerce only to leave it for others to enjoy when you're gone or to be distracted from God by conjecturing the past? Or is your purpose to elevate your soul that lives forever in a Paradise that no eye has seen, no mind has concieved and no heart has had the ability to desire? Islam teaches you to free yourself from the shackles of Satan's hold on you in earth to reach your true home at God. The only thing standing between Satan's One World Order of evils like debt, gambling, adultery, fornication, sodomy, alchoholism, etc. is Islam. Grow a brain and reflect learn and realise its not about earth or power or numbers it;s about your soul and your redemption and your freedom.

      "Know your history"? Persia was what is now Iran, not Afghanistan.

      @ztaipei2000: My father is in Saudi Arabia. He was a Christian in his early years and felt it to be hollow. The religon he felt had become hollow as no one truly practiced what they preached. He has since studied Islam and through interacting with people over there, learning to speak, read and write Arabic as well as study the Quran and learn its teachings, he then looked at the people and saw the same thing in them he saw in Christianity. The people do not follow the words they preach. What the world needs is not Religion. It needs people to become Spiritual. Religon has taken the message intended and turned it into a money making scheme, it doesnt matter which one you look at they all revolve around Money. The one thing we actualy do not need in this life. As far as I am concerned the "Terrorists" and the USA are part of the same team. If they are not then the Americans are truly incompetant and their spies and information gatherers are pretty useless not to be able to catch 1 man for 10 years, especially one so well known as Osama Bin Laden. Also if America had truly killed him where is the proof and why are there so many different versions of events from the White House? People need to learn to question the information given to them and make a self informed decision and not automatically accept what is fed to you though the little black tube in your house. We are all being used in a game of chess and we the common man of all nations will ultimatly be the loosers.

      shame I can see you have a peanut for a brain shame, I wont even get upset for you ingnorance.

  • merlinv1 - 2011-06-08 20:26

    firstly read the article, "We will pursue the jihad until we expel the invaders from Muslim lands," it doesnt say muslims own the lands of the world, but rather states that they want foreign forces out of the lands controlled by muslims. You make alot of claims about how "muslim invaders" destroyed lands and raped women. I challenge you to submit concrete evidence in this regard. I can guarantee this much, if Muslim controlled land wasnt so rich in oil there never would have been a war on terror. So as far as America being "the only thing between muslims and you" goes, maybe you should ask yourself why muslims and many non-muslims around the world hate Americans. If South Africa waws rich in oil than the ANC would still be seen as a terrorist organisation. America couldnt give a damn about anyone else. Thats why between the USA and Israel there are more human rights violations than the rest of the world combined. As far as proof of that goes, since you love history so much, go and read up about what guards at Guantanamo bay have said about their time their. Go and read up about how Israeli invaders massacred thousands of innocent people, about how Palestine and Iraq once had infrastructure and how American and Israeli bombs destroyed it all. Or do you regard that as media propaganda?

      slg - 2011-06-08 22:26

      With that ideology, you're no Merlin that's for sure.

      Grunk - 2011-06-09 07:56

      Slug, instead of snide comments why don't you try to refute what Merlin says on a point by point basis so that we can shoot your arguments down with facts? One very apt point he makes - "you should ask yourself why muslims and many non-muslims around the world hate Americans".

      Creeky - 2011-06-09 08:54

      What SLAYS me is that you NEVER hear of a JIHADDI LEADER strapping a BOMB to his or her body and BLOWING THEMSELVES TO KINGDOM COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Grunk - 2011-06-09 09:22

      And you never hear of an American General going in with his Seal teams - far too dangerous!!!!

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:22

      You could not have said it any better Merlinv...Iraq,Afghanistan and Palestine was RAPED by America & Israel!ARAB UPRISINGS AT THE MOMENT TELLS ANOTHER STORY,LIBYA HAS OIL REMEMBER!!!BELIEVE IT OR NOT,THE HOLY QURAAN WARNES US ABOUT THINGS HAPPENING DAILY,OPPRESION TO THE MUSLIMS,EARTHQUKES,TSUNAMIS,LOVE FOR MUSIC AND ALCOHOL,HOMOSEXUALITY,WOMAN RIGHTS AND SO ON..THE TRUTH WILL SOON BE REVEALED!ALLH-U-AKBAR(GOD IS GREAT)

  • tommy 2 - 2011-06-08 20:41

    @GONNY, Why have you not mentioned the greeks, Thank you for the history lesson,but exactly how many centuries ago has all of this taken place that you have stated. Let us look at the current situation, They simply want American soldiers out of muslim occupied land(countries).But the Americans have alot of intrests in these countries. So according to your paragraph,history is about to repeat itself.... So this war will be on going,and the rest of the world should fear... The free world,but why does one country want to run the free world. If the americans rule the world people will do as the americans say..... (so they will also be forced into ......) By the way those people around the globe converting to islam currently,i am sure are not being forced. Your point about owning land on earth? So countries do not own they land...... 00 | Delete

      slg - 2011-06-08 22:30

      Who is they? Al-Quaida, a small group of thugs who believe in beheading and blowing up people to get what they want. They're a tiny minority in the Muslim community and, more importantly, becoming smaller and less powerful all the time, you included.

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:25

      WELL SAID TOMMY..

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:27

      by the way Al Qaida is a product of AMERICA(CIA) along with OSAMA BIN HIDING FOR 10 YEARS ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY FIND HIM UN GUARDED,THESE AMERICANS THINKS EVERYBODY ARE FOOLS

  • Riaad - 2011-06-08 21:07

    GonnyVonYuri needs to allow the facts to shine thru his prejudice and hatred for Islam. The Golden Era of Islam was happening while Europe was grovelling in the Dark Ages. Islam encourages science and learning, unlike Christianity. No Muslim scientist was ever burnt at the stake for merely asserting his scientific observations. And for the record, Persia was not Afghanistan, but present-day Iran. The British brought down the beautiful Indian Empire, not the Muslims. Any idiot will tell you that the magnificent Taj Mahal, for instance, was constructed by the Muslim Shah Jehan for his wife Mumtaz. And Egypt has fallen ever since the West interfered in Muslim politics; placing puppets like Mubarak and the Saudis in power, who steal their nations' wealth and kill their own people in order to please their Western masters. Islam is the Truth - read the Qur'an. But throw away your prejudice first, and maybe then Allah will guide you to the see the light. A'meen ya Rabbal 'alameen!

      slg - 2011-06-08 22:31

      More correctly, Islam has some truth. It is not THE truth.

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:35

      Ameen...some people like GonnyVonYuri either sucks up information or they believe everything the American goverment tells them..they told them to accept GAY MARRIAGES,they told them to accept PROSTITUTION,they told them its ok to HAVE SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE,they told them its ok for their WOMAN TO WALK AROUND NAKED,yet if ISLAM wantd to defend their people then its TERRORISM..but we will make DU AA(PRAY) FOR THEM

  • Adam - 2011-06-08 21:51

    i dont see how honest good people who follow the faith of islam - and there are plenty - dont blink an eye when extremists kill innocent people in the name of islam? im yet to see a muslim revolt against the terrorist tactics used by fundamentalists, why? people complain that israel bullies and attacks the people of gaza but no one ever tells the people of gaza to stop democratically voting in hamas, who is responsible for all the rocket attacks on israel, surley there are leaders in the islamic world who wish to practice what they teach and implement a world of peace instead of war and death? why dont these men stand up?

      slg - 2011-06-08 22:33

      You've hit on the crux of the calling to Muslims the works over: differentiated yourself from these inhuman behaviors. Just because a person says he's a Muslim does not excuse him from acceptable human behavior.

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-06-09 09:57

      So true. If they're such a peace-loving religion, let them cry out and oppose the voilence being carried out by their fundamentalist cousins. Or is voilence only bad when NOT practiced against Israel and the west?

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:37

      DONT BELEIVE EVERYTHING YOU READ IN THE MEDIA,THATS WHAY AMERICA AND ISRAEL WANTS,THEY WANT IGGNORANT DONKEYS LIKE YOUR SELF TO BELEIVE WHATEVER THEY SAY...LIKE FOR INSTANCE,THEY THREW OSAMA BIN LADEN BODY INTO SEA..BULLSHIT,MY MAN,THERE IS NO OSAMA BIN LADEN

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-06-09 18:03

      Koran 47:4 When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens. Koran 9:5 "Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-06-09 18:05

      @Sharief - its fastest growing cos they are breeding uncontrollably - they are denied any pleasures/freedoms in their countries what else can they do but breed? Also whats the consequence of a muslim giving up his faith??? DEATH! So who would risk that?

      Paco7 - 2011-06-13 15:23

      that's Christianity and the crusaders.....u got your religions all mixed up boy

  • lilo69 - 2011-06-08 22:37

    @Smk, 100% spot on. People are blinded by organised religion,the world is driven by greed and hunger. (and stupidity. I'm still waiting to be raptured!)

  • GT - 2011-06-08 22:38

    What about Muslims invading western lands? Should they be beheaded? Islam offers nothing. It is a bad copy of the previous Abrahamic religions which are based in fear and loathing and self hate. The world could do with all 3 in my view. And lets understand something - ISLAM is not a race, it is a idea. Ideas should be challenged, especially when they make claims they cannot possibly back up

      Grunk - 2011-06-09 08:55

      Bear in mind GT that history will reflect that there have been as many beheadings and crimes committed in the names of both Islam and Christianity - and death and torture in the names of both Democracy and Communism. Thus the problem is - what is "good" copy? And more to the point, where do you find this "Nirvana"? The most we common people can do, as far as I can see, is fight to hold on to the few rights that the common people have - which is why this Press muzzling law that the ANC wants to impose has to be fought to the bitter end.

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:48

      WHAT CRAP R U TALKING ABOUT,GEE WHIZ,HOW CAN U SAY ISLAM IS AN IDEA...ISLAM COMES FROM GOD...U IDIOT

      Zee - 2011-06-09 11:14

      @Sharief - as a fellow Muslim I urge you to not insult people by calling them idiots for expressing the opinion. Only then can you expect the same in return. Islam teaches us this, practise what you preach my brother.

      Paco7 - 2011-06-15 10:58

      u in denial,hopefully one day u will see the light and realise that only Islam can save you

  • USAMAH - 2011-06-09 08:54

    Why don't the US just pull out of Iraq AND Afghanistan. Once they do that, Al Qaeda will simply be out of a job. None of us born and bred Muslims, had ever, IN OUR WHOLE LIVES, even heard of ' AL Qaeada' until the US INVADED Iraq and Afghanistan. And one more thing, there are dozens of orthodox Muslims, ALL who have qualified in Madressahs, who FREQUENTLY preach to us Muslims against acts of anarchy and terror, BUT I'M SURE MANY OF YOU ARE TOO PREJUDICED TO EVER MEET OR DISCUSS WITH THEM. And one more thing,people in the Middle East practicing what is considered Haraam, like homosexuality and bestiality, is not Islam's fault, IT'S THEIR OWN FAULT. These are all acts punishable by the death sentence under Islamic Law. Like how any crime has a jail sentence, but lot's of people still commit crime, especially here in South Africa.The problem is not the Islamic Laws, but that Muslim people ' break' Islamic Laws.Which includes killing of civilians.This is an act that would carry the death sentence under Islamic , SHARIA rule. Killing of armed soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan is however allowed , as they are an invading force who have caused immense misery in the countries they have INVADED>

      Sharief - 2011-06-09 10:55

      Right on Usamah...Al qaeda is a product of America along with Osama Bin Laden...before 911 there must have been no terrorism,Mulsims were not beheading innocent people,the world was a peacefull place...but wait,before 911 i can remeber THE MUSLIM PEOPLE IN BOSNIA AND PALESTINE BEING KILLED..who is to blame for that,or does it not matteR!!

      Stof Donkie - 2011-06-09 12:38

      Because you all turn against each other and commit crimes against humanity, using a soccer field not for sport but executions!! someone had to stop your activities on saturdays, and that only countries in the world who could was the free world - Free meaning playing and enjoying a soccer field for what it was made for. The only people who suffered was the ones carrying out these in humane acts!!

      Ingwe - 2011-06-09 13:03

      Sharief sorry to burst your bubble was it not the same US led Nato alliance that went to the aid of the Muslim people in Bosnia.

  • USAMAH - 2011-06-09 08:59

    And GONNY, Muslims OWN the land of Afghanistan and Iraq which the Us has INVADED. This means they are fully within their rights to kick out the US and NATO forces. SImarlarly ISREAL daily annexes and steal land belonging to Palestinian people. What do you expect Muslims to do when others INVADE and STEAL your land. Be a sitting duck and say "CHEESE" every time they bomb you with an Apache or a B52????

      GonnyVonYuri - 2011-06-09 18:06

      They wouldnt be in the sheethole afghanistan if your brothers didnt fly a plane into new york and kill INTELLIGENT CREAM OF THE CROP people!
