Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, is reported to have issued a video recording calling on Muslims to wage jihad against Israel over its offensive in Gaza.

The recording, which was dated to the current month in the Islamic calendar and called “A Call for Jihad to Stop the Aggression against Gaza”, was posted on websites on Wednesday.

“God has bestowed us with the patience to continue the path of jihad for another seven years, and seven and seven years,” the voice on the tape, purported to be that of bin Laden, said.

“The question is, can America continue its war with us for several more decades to come? Reports and evidence would suggest otherwise.”

It was not possible to independently identify the voice on the tape.

Angry protests

The 22-minute audio statement said jihad was necessary to restore “Jerusalem and Palestine”.

It criticised the way Arab governments have handled the war Israel has been waging in Gaza for 19 days.

Nearly 1,000 Palestinians have been killed in the onslaught, and more than 4,000 others injured over the last three weeks. Israel says 13 Israelis have been killed.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets across the Arab world in anger and protest against the attacks, but Arab government have responded with little concrete action against Israel.

The speaker on Wednesday’s tape hailed the global financial crisis as a decline in US influence around the world and said it would, in turn, weaken Israel – one of Washington’s closest allies.

Gordon Johndroe, a US White House spokesman, said: “It appears this tape demonstrates his isolation and … looks to be an effort to raise money as part of [al-Qaeda’s] ongoing propaganda campaign.”

  1. negara israel adalah negara kecil dengan nyali yang sangat kecil.
    mereka hanya berani berperang dibelakang besi baja.
    lihatlah anak-anak palestina yang berperang dengan sebuah batu kecil ditelapak tangannya.
    anak-anak itu tidak takut dan gentar menghadapi besi-besi baja israel.
    para pemuka agama yahudi di israel sempat berpesan kepada para prajurit israel untuk membunuh anak-anak palestina, karena anak-anak palestina dianggap mereka akan membahayakan mereka di masa depan.
    oleh karena itu banyak ANAK-ANAK PALESTINA MENJADI KORBAN.
    Disini sudah terbukti bahwa negara israel merupakan negara yang tidak mempunyai martabat, dan harga diri.

  2. Fuck Israel >>

    Israel killing the children and the people in Gaza
    and the world is silent

    Let’s fuck Israel
