Osama bin Laden’s latest video message

Here is the latest video from Osama bin Laden, apparently released a few hours ago (Sunday, July 15th) although there is no way of knowing when it was actually recorded. There is some background from LauraMansfield.com:

He himself said ‘By Him in Whose Hands my life is!
I would love to attack and be martyred,
then attack again and be martyred,
then attack again and be martyred.’

Those are the words of Osama Bin Laden in a short clip from a longer As Sahab video.

According to CNN, however, the original video was 40 minutes long instead of the 50 seconds of bin Laden which made it to YouTube. The rest was, essentially, a motivational tape encouraging viewers to think positively of martyrdom as a career choice.

Bin Laden glorified those who die in the name of jihad, or holy war, saying even the Prophet Muhammad “had been wishing to be a martyr.”

“The happy (man) is the one that God has chosen him to be a martyr,” added bin Laden, who was shown outdoors wearing army fatigues and looking tired.

The authenticity of the video could not be verified, but it appeared on a Web site commonly used by Islamic militants and carried the logo of as-Sahab, al-Qaida‘s media production wing. It was not immediately clear when the video of bin Laden was filmed.

Bin Laden was last heard from in a July 1, 2006 audio tape in which he voiced support for the new leader of al-Qaida in Iraq and warned nations not to send troops to fight a hardline Islamic regime that had recently seized power in Somalia.

  1. bin laden is too much of a pussy to show his face here in the usa or anywhere else; if i had the chance i’d kick the shit out of him like a real man, with my bare hands! he has to hide behind his piece of shit taliban

  3. last week in class in Horsham, the teacher mentioned Osama bin ladens name in class which i thought was outragous. But after today i realise that it must be ok to mention his name in schools. I leraned from a friend that she has full support from the police so it must be my mistake that you can mention the worlds most wanted person who is capable of planning attacks on America and plans aeroplanes to crash into the world trade . At least in Horhsam they seem to be protecting people who can go out and mention his name so good for them. I know now that we can have freedom of speech in Horsham and Osama bin ladens name when we want to. So all you fanatics out there, you must come and visit! Oh yeah, and they find it funny as well which makes me laugh because if that is funny then God help us all.

  4. Perhaps in Horsham they praise Osama bin laden as the teacher said that she wanted to have lunch with him. I am sure he will be pleased to hear this. They seem to have it all organised in Horsham but yet when they have to try and get a terriorist instead they manage to kill the wrong man by shooting him seven times in the head. So better luck next time i say to them

  5. Fatima is indeed most happy to live in HorsHam, that Luvvly Li’l Town, the Envy of many Less Happier Towns in the Deep Souf of Inglaterra

    It is not Slough which featured so dismally in Pilgrim’s Progress (“the Slough of Despond”), despite the presence of that delectable Mars Bar factory, which has brought Happiness to so many Gourmands of Chocolate

    There, it’s generally 2/3 degrees warmer than in the Frozen Norf of Norfolk, whence Magister AerChius Dudius’s ancestors came from [or is it Mrs McAerChie’s ancestors)

    It is near the M25 “Motorway”, Europe’s largest Free Car-Park twice a day during rush-hours – automobiles go SO SLOWLY (if moving at all) that the Police have to re-set their Speed-Cameras to ilLegalise ever-slower speeds

    * This is to keep up the Government’s income-stream from Fining Motorists even when driving safely, without causing accidents – very Prudent for a Government maintaining its best position to cope triumphantly with the Global Recession

    However, SchPelling should hardly worry the Burgers & Burgeresses of HorsHam – the focus should be amelioration of their pronounciation of Words spellt with an “a” :





    Surely this would be an Exciting Job-Opportunity for that distinguished Word-Smith – Monsieur Metro – if only he could tear himself away from Managing that Tree-Octopus Theme Park near Vancouver

  6. Yes, fatima has problems with coherence, capitalization, and freedom of speech, apparently. At least, she hasn’t demonstrated any particular fondness for any of the above.

  7. Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I guess after you mention osma bin ladens name
    It may be touche to you.

    I am ready for round two?

  8. Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Be careful when you mention Osama bin ladens name
    It may very well be touche to you…

    And yes, i am ready for round two.

  9. Osama is still alive???!!! I also saw Elvis Presley last week in a supermarket. Wake up people, how very convenient for Osama to reappear when the new American president needs him most. Osama was trained by the CIA, funded by the CIA, hospitalised by the CIA. He was an agent, was, they got rid of him a long time ago. Don’t alway believe what the media tell you.

  10. Some have difficulty understanding the current news and reading that Osama is on video talking about Obama visiting the Middle East. wake up and smell the coffee or have you been in a coma since “2007”?

  11. You’re telling us not to believe what the media says, and yet you refer us to a story in the media?

    You have difficulties with internal consistency as well, apparently.

    Have you seen the several other “Obama Video” posts on this blog? If you had, you’d maybe get the idea I consider the matter long since resolved. It’s not my fault I google highly and people want to shout at the past.

  12. How about you clarify your own internal inconsistancy and inform us all of your latest theories. You don’t have to write a book just a short sentence or two to update this old blog. Would you do that as a favor?

  13. If you’d read those posts, you’d see that I have clarified.

    Years ago.

    Most people are intelligent enough not to take issue with stories that ran years ago for not being in tune with the latest news. They realize time flows in one direction, unless you’ve got a Tardis. And people with Tardii are sophisticated enough to know when they’ve made fools of themselves and shut up.

  14. You’re quite a fool proclaiming to dispense information (or misinformation) and then not. How about providing a link to answer this query.
    Wading through all your blogs is like swimming in vomit, tardiboy.

  15. Your Grace

    Is Mr Haywood a member of the famous & distinguished Haywood family of Derbyshire – the best of Counties (per Jane Austen)

    Of Derbyshire folk, it is said that they are :

    “Weak in t’ Head
    Strong i’t’ Arm”

    I wonder if any of your many Visitors knows what “Weak” in this phrase actually means … or how it should really be spellt


    Does your Grace realize that by some local yokels, “Derbyshire” is pronounciated “Darb – ee – Sheer”

    Not many People kNow that or (lamentably) would want to kNow that

    Yr Grace’s consistAntly obedient servant etc

  16. Difficult to avoid us if you keep coming back, isn’t it?

    Here’s your link.

    How many hours a day do you spend running around the internet, commenting on old posts, excoriating the blogger for not having updated them? Do you go to the library and yell at the old books in your spare time?
