I was just watching Al Jazeera English (can watch Al Jazeera English, BBC, ITN, Press TV and other international media after downloading the software for free via http://www.livestation.com) and Bin Laden has come out with yet another tape in which he conveys that the Nigerian bomber was sent because of what the US (Obama) has been doing to support what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians in Gaza. No surprise there either.. He also said that more bombers are on the way unless the US changes its foreign policy and stops such support of genocide in Palestine:
General (Ret) James David (who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the pro-Israel lobby’s influence on the US political system and media) wrote the following intro as he also wrote The source of terrorism: http://www.mediamonitors.net/jamesjdavid1.html as well:
American politicians who take a sworn oath to the Israeli lobby (AIPAC) in support of the government of Israel is just as much contributors to world terrorism as anyone on this planet. Supporting a government who continues to illegally occupy another people’s land, demolish their homes, raid their villages, kill their women and children, imposes collective punishment, imprison its people, steals their water, uproots its olive orchards, destroys its schools, hospitals, bridges, factories, and mosques are an embarrassment to the American people and should never be re-elected. It’s not that I object to supporting an ally. I object to supporting an ally who commits war crimes with the arrogant behaviour that they can do anything that they wish and never have to pay the consequence while the American people are the ones in the end who must pay. To me this is just as wrong as supporting a terrorist nation. These politicians do more harm for America’s security while insuring their political careers are never in danger. Until this practice is changed, America will always be at risk. I will send this to my Representative and Senator today. Hope you do the same.

Bin Laden claims Christmas bombing attempt
CAIRO (AP)– Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day airline bombing attempt in Detroit, in a audio message released Sunday, and vowed further attacks on the U.S.
The message suggests that bin Laden wants to show he remains in direct command of al-Qaida’s many branches around the world.
In the short recording carried by the Al-Jazeera Arabic news channel, bin Laden addressed President Barack Obama saying the attack was a message similar to that of Sept. 11 and more attacks against the U.S. would be forthcoming.
“The message delivered to you through the plane of the heroic warrior Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was a confirmation of the previous messages sent by the heroes of the Sept. 11,” he said.
“America will never dream of security unless we will have it in reality in Palestine,” he added. “God willing, our raids on you will continue as long as your support for the Israelis continues.”
On Christmas Day, Nigerian national Abdulmutallab attempted to blow up the Northwest Airlines flight he was sitting on as it approached Detroit Metro Airport. But the bomb he was hiding in his underwear failed to explode.
He told federal agents shortly afterward that he had been trained and instructed in the plot by al-Qaida operatives in Yemen.
Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula originally took credit for the attack, but by issuing this message, bin Laden seems to be indicating that he himself is ordering attacks, rather than just putting his seal of approval on events afterward.
Analysts had previously suggested that al-Qaida’s offshoots in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and elsewhere were operated independently from bin Laden, who is believed to be somewhere in Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.
There was no way to confirm the voice was actually that of Bin Laden, but it resembled previous recordings attributed to him.
In the past year, bin Laden’s messages have concentrated heavily on the plight of the Palestinians in attempt to rally support across the region.
Many analysts believe that bin Laden is worried about Obama’s popularity across the Middle East with his promises to withdraw from Iraq and personal background, so the al-Qaida leader is focusing on the close U.S.-Israeli relationship.
The suffering of the Palestinians, especially in the blockaded Gaza Strip where 1,400 died during an Israeli offensive there last year, angered many in the Arab world.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, Andy David, dismissed the latest al-Qaida message and its attempt to link Israel with attacks on the U.S.
“This is nothing new, he has said this before. Terrorists always look for absurd excuses for their despicable deeds,” he said.
The last public message from bin Laden appears to have been on Sept. 26, when he demanded that European countries pull their troops out of Afghanistan. The order came in an audiotape that also warned of “retaliation” against nations that are allied with the United States in fighting the war.
