  1. It’s not entirely logical, though, Hellmut. Al Qaeda seem to like slaughtering Arabs too, including Sunnis (think of Egypt).

  2. Exactly, John. Osama likes to stage himself as the champion of Islam. In reality, he is a lot less virtuous than he makes himself out to be, even if one were willing to accept the assumption that Muslims are getting a raw deal in world politics.The Egyptian victims are a good point, Ronan. Al Quaeda has always been willing to cause “collateral damage” among the believers. And the strategic goal seems to be to replace the Arab governments. But now, Osama is implying that an entire group of Muslims deserves to be exterminated for the benefit of Arabs.Osama bin Laden is not an Islamic freedom fighter. In his eyes, Muslims who are black don’t count.

  3. Right. That’s why it is important that we won’t let him claim Islam. Al Qaeda is merely the vehicle for the ambitions of a few. It’s not about liberating anyone. The genocide in Darfur can only be justified in terms of tribal selfishness. When Osama joined in the slaughter he unmasked himself for who he is. He is not a good Muslim and he does not own Islam.Many Muslims have already recognized that.

  4. I suspect Bin Bonehead and his dysfunctional brain Zawahiri are doing this for tactical reasons more than anything else. Their paranoid assesment of the situation is probably that the Janjaweed massacres have been exaggerated by the ‘Christian-Zionist’ media. Note that Bin Bonehead spent time in Sudan after his Saudi exile, so he’s probably inclined to believe the Sudanese governments story over the Western media’s.Obviously everything his gang has done has shown far more concern for furthering their ideological agenda than for alleviating the suffering of Arabs, Afghans, or Africans.
