Bin Laden and His Lame Threats

WorldNetDaily: Bin Laden to states: Don't vote for Bush:

"Analysis of the speech by MEMRI's president, Yigal Carmon, reveals the absence 'of common Islamist themes that are relevant to the month of Ramadan, which for fundamentalists like bin Laden is the month of Jihad and martyrdom. Noticeably absent from the Al-Jazeera tape was his usual appearance with a weapon, and more importantly the absence of references to Jihad, martyrdom, the Koran, the Hadith (Islamic tradition), Crusaders, Jews, and the legacy of the Prophet Muhammad on the duty to wage Jihad against the infidels.'

Thus, for al-Qaida's followers, bin Laden's speech sends a regressive and defeatist message of surrender, concludes Carmon, as seen in the move from solely using Jihad warfare to a mixed strategy of threats combined with truce offers and election deals. "
