This may be very distrurbing information glossed over by the mainstream media over the weekend. It showed up today in the New York Post and in Drudge Report. This clearly points to Bin Laden’s view that Kerry, and “Kerry States” will make “peace” with his cause. In a potential mis translation of the word “state” in the original translation meaning not a Foreign “State” but state as in State of Texas. Given the clarification, the terrorist is threatening any of the so called Red states that vote republican as being an enemy of his Islamic movement. This clearly points to the outcome Bin Laden is looking for !!!
New York Post Online Edition: news: “The respected Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and translates Arabic media and Internet sites, said initial translations of a key portion of bin Laden’s video rant to the American people Friday night missed an ostentatious bid by the Saudi-born terror master to divide American voters and tilt the election towards Democratic challenger John Kerry.
MEMRI said radical Islamist commentators monitored over the Internet this past weekend also interpreted the key passage of bin Laden’s diatribe to mean that any U.S. state that votes to elect Bush on Tuesday will be considered an ‘enemy’ and any state that votes for Kerry has ‘chosen to make peace with us.’
The statement in question is when bin Laden said on the tape: ‘Your security is up to you, and any state that does not toy with our security automatically guarantees its own security.'” More…
MEMRI also translated an analysis of bin Laden’s statement from the Islamist Web site al-Qal’a, well known for posting al-Qaeda messages, which agreed that bin Laden’s use of the word “ay-wilaya” was meant as a “warning to every U.S state separately.”
“It means that any U.S. state that will choose to vote for the white thug Bush as president, it means that it chose to fight us and we will consider it an enemy to us, and any state that will vote against Bush, it means that it chose to make peace with us and we will not characterize it as an enemy,” the Web site said, according to MEMRI’s translation.
It will be interesting to see if any of this gets picked up in this evening’s mainstream news !!! — zzb
