I have found transcripts of the latest bin Laden screed here:

[scanned text, distracting pen marks]

The screed is a taunting mockery; full of deception and projection.

Regarding the Iraq theater of war:

“There are two solutions to stopping it. One is from our side, and it is to escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out,” “The second solution is from your side,” he said. “I invite you to embrace Islam.”

What does that mean?

  • escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out, is a clear indication of bin Laden’s intent to attack us again.
  • I invite you to embrace Islam. That is the fulfillment of an essential Islamic legal requirement:

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
>> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

Having met that requirement of Sharia, bin Laden now considers any further attack on us to be fully justified; in compliance with Islamic law.

Bin Laden also said: “Peace be upon he who follows the guidance.” For the benefit of the clueless among you, here is where he got that expression:

Muhammad dictated and dispatched many extortion letters, which you can read at, by clicking the extortion letter reproduced above. What does it mean?

  • May peace be on him who follows the guidance means that Muhammad would make war on anyone who refused to comply with his demand. This is a token of supreme arrogance.
  • in order that I may infuse the fear of Allah in every living person refers to two ayat: 3:151 & 8:12 which sanctify & mandate terrorism. They are reproduced below, together with an ahadith which confirms their meaning. If any doubt remains, consult 33:26-27 to see the practical application.
  • Accept Islam and be secure means: If you don’t accept Islam, Muhammad will make war on you.

Of course Muhammad confirmed this in an ahadith.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 267:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “Khosrau will be ruined, and there will be no Khosrau after him, and Caesar will surely be ruined and there will be no Caesar after him, and you will spend their treasures in Allah’s Cause.” He called, “War is deceit’.

Did Muhammad follow through on his threat? No, he died before getting around to it. But Umar took care of it. These excerpts from a long ahadith will make it plain for you. [Click the link to read the whole thing.]

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386:
Narrated Jubair bin Haiya:
‘Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans…. When we reached the land of the enemy, the representative of Khosrau came out with forty-thousand warriors, and an interpreter got up saying, “Let one of you talk to me!” Al-Mughira replied, “Ask whatever you wish.” The other asked, “Who are you?”… Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”

Persia was not originally Islamic. How did you think it was Islamized?

The bottom line: bin Laden has made an extortionate demand, threatening us with further mass casualty attacks if we do not embrace Islam. We need to respond by telling that worshipper of Satan to go to Hell and be damned. We need to declare Mecca as default target for immediate retaliation in the event of any further attack by Islam. For this purpose I urge and exhort you to sign the Target: Mecca petition, send it to and to all your friends. Exhort them to follow suit. Do it now, before the next attack! If not now, when? If not us, who?

3:151 We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

8:12 (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
