Jewish culture & religion - Talk Politics Mideast

"The Western regimes and the government of the United States of America 
bear the blame for what might happen. If their people do not wish to be 
harmed inside their very own countries, they should seek to elect 
governments that are truly representative of them and that can protect their 

"The leaders in America and in other countries as well have fallen victim to 
Jewish Zionist blackmail. They have mobilized their people against Islam and 
against Muslims. These are portrayed in such a manner as to drive people to 
rally against them. The truth is that the whole Muslim world is the victim 
of international terrorism, engineered by America at the United Nations. We 
are a nation whose sacred symbols have been looted and whose wealth and 
resources have been plundered. It is normal for us to react against the 
forces that invade our land and occupy it."

"Our mothers and daughters and sons are slaughtered every day with the 
approval of

America and its support. And, while America blocks the entry of weapons into 

countries, it provides the Israelis with a continuous supply of arms 
allowing them thus

to kill and massacre more Muslims. Your religion does not forbid you from 

such acts, so you have no right to object to any response or retaliation 

reciprocates your own actions. But, and in spite of this, our retaliation is 

primarily against the soldiers only and against those standing by them. Our 

forbids us from killing innocent people such as women and children. This, 

does not apply to women fighters. A woman who puts herself in the same 
trench with

men, gets what they get."

"I say to them that they have put themselves at the mercy of a disloyal 

and this is most evident in Clinton's administration ... . We believe that 

administration represents Israel inside America. Take the sensitive 
ministries such as

the Ministry of Exterior and the Ministry of Defense and the CIA, you will 
find that the

Jews have the upper hand in them. They make use of America to further their 

for the world, especially the Islamic world. American presence in the Gulf 

support to the Jews and protects their rear. And while millions of Americans 

homeless and destitute and live in abject poverty, their government is busy

occupying our land and building new settlements and helping Israel build new

settlements in the point of departure for our Prophet's midnight journey to 
the seven

heavens. America throws her own sons in the land of the two

Holy Mosques for the sake of protecting Jewish interests."

"The American government is leading the country towards hell. ... We say to 

Americans as people and to American mothers, if they cherish their lives and 
if they

cherish their sons, they must elect an American patriotic government that 
caters to

their interests not the interests of the Jews. If the present injustice 
continues with the

wave of national consciousness, it will inevitably move the battle to 
American soil,

just as Ramzi Yousef and others have done. This is my message to the 

people. I urge them to find a serious administration that acts in their 
interest and does

not attack people and violate their honor and pilfer their wealth."

Why should not all Arab countries seek to elect governments that are 
truly representative of them?

In fact why in regions under ObL influence like Afghanistan did this not
