Like Obama, Osama Praises ‘Arab Spring’

From the administration’s favorite news outlet, Al Jazeera:

Al-Qaeda releases posthumous bin Laden tape

Bin Laden praises Arab uprisings and calls on followers to help in bringing down more ‘tyrants’ in the Muslim world.

19 May 2011

Al-Qaeda has released a posthumous audio recording by Osama bin Laden in which the group’s late leader praised revolutions sweeping the Arab world.

In the audio posted on Islamist websites on Thursday, bin Laden called on his followers to help efforts to bring down more "tyrants" in the Muslim world.

Bin Laden, who was killed in a US raid on May 2, 2011, in Pakistan, called on al-Qaeda supporters to "set up an operations room that follows up events and works in parallel … to save the people that are struggling to bring down their tyrants".

It almost sounds like Mr. Bin Laden got a sneak preview of Mr. Obama’s upcoming Middle East speech.

Al-Qaeda said bin Laden had recorded the message a week before his death. The audio was included in an Internet video, lasting more than 12 minutes. In the audio, a voice which appears to be bin Laden’s referred to the wave of revolutions which began in the Maghreb region of North Africa.

"The sun of the revolution has risen from the Maghreb. The light of the revolution came from Tunisia. It has given the nation tranquility and made the faces of the people happy."

"Tunisia was the first but swiftly the knights of Egypt have taken a spark from the free people of Tunisia to Tahrir Square," said bin Laden, adding: "It has made the rulers worried."

According to Reuters, Mr. Bin Laden only praised Tunisia and Egypt. Again, just like Mr. Obama. Also, Reuters reports that Bin Laden said the unrest made Israel "worried."

He predicted that the winds of change would blow over the entire Muslim world.

"I think that the winds of change will blow over the entire Muslim world, with permission from Allah.

"A delay may cause the opportunity to be lost, and carrying it out before the right time will increase the number of casualties," bin Laden says in the audio message.

All of which sure sounds like what we are supposed to be hearing later today from Mr. Obama. But wouldn’t you think having Mr. Bin Laden on your side on this issue would give you pause?

Of course, it won’t faze our young President. On the contrary, Mr. Obama will probably kick himself for having ‘offed’ a potential ally.

    Is “Arab Spring” like “Irish Spring” only with the fresh scent of billy goat that drives nanny goats wild?

      Kinda like that new deodorant that just hit the market…….you know, Tali-Ban. Strong enough for a goat, but made for an a$$hole

    …..”It almost sounds like Mr. Bin Laden got a sneak preview of Mr. Obama’s upcoming Middle East speech…..”

    Well, we did get that cache of information from OBL’s computers in his not-so-secret compound. My guess is, if Obama didn’t plagiarize Osama’s work then they co-authored the speech.

    Birds of a feather………

  7. untrainable says:

    Now we know why Barry wanted Osama dead. He wanted to take over the plan to destroy Israel himself, for his glorious legacy. I guess Osama wasn’t getting it done fast enough for him. I am sickened beyond my ability to express.

    I’m betting he was in Spike’s Fave Five and got copies of all of Barry the Bungler’s emails. I wonder how well our Boy-in-Chief knows Saif al-Adel, the new chief goat herder at Al Qaeda HQ? Bet their exchanging tweets as we speak trying to get better aquainted.

      Obama told Israel they will have to learn to live side by side and be willing to “swap places” with Palestine? “Swap places?”

      Nice, if the USA could boot Obama and “exile” him to Palestine.

    The “Arab Spring” protests are really the decades anniversary of
    Youm an Nakba “the Day of Catastrophe” ,
    after WWII when the Jews were settled in their homeland of Israel

    Obama’s White House spokesman Carney said “In shaping his approach, the officials said, the president looked to successful transitions to democracy after World War II…”
    He said Obama sees the Arab Spring as “a moment of opportunity” for the U.S. to recast it’s strategy in the region

    Aaron David Miller, a Middle East scholar made comments that this Arab Spring is will be the greatest “crisis” Obama will deal with, only Obama is celebrating it with the muslims! Did Americans ask to celebrate this? Did you ask to celebrate this?
    . 80% of Egypt don’t like the U.S. yet Obama is promising them $billions and billions of money. The money will end in the hands of al-Qaeda. I’d rather see it go to Japan.
    We are giving Egypt money when they are cutting of oil?

    Obama is celebrating this crisis, because that is what he wants to call Marshall law on the U.S.
    This would be Obama’s dream to be King of the U.S.

    ! ! ! Did you hear that rapper’s song at the White House Poetry ? ! !

    Rapper Common rapped “Thanking god… Barack is king… Barack us… Barack us… Barack us.. Barack us…. Barack us..! ! !
    former lyrics he has written praises islam.

    Glen Beck has been showing video of Arabs saying the Arab Spring is a time to massacre Israel.

    And the President of the U.S. Barack Hussein Obama II is celebrating the Muslims massacre of Israel.

  10. canary says:

    This is the ‘Great Massacre of the Jews’ Muslim holy day, Obama is celebrating with muslims under the guise the “Arab Spring”.

    Hamas MP and Cleric Yunis Al-Astal: The Jews Were Brought to Palestine for the “Great Massacre” through which Allah Will “Relieve Humanity of Their Evil”

    Following are excerpts from an interview with Hamas MP and cleric Yunis Al-Astal, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on May 11, 2011:
    Yunis Al-Astal: The [Jews] are brought in droves to Palestine so that the Palestinians – and the Islamic nation behind them – will have the honor of annihilating the evil of this gang.
    […]
    All the predators, all the birds of prey, all the dangerous reptiles and insects, and all the lethal bacteria are far less dangerous than the Jews.
    […]
    In just a few years, all the Zionists and the settlers will realize that their arrival in Palestine was for the purpose of the great massacre, by means of which Allah wants to relieve humanity of their evil.
    […]
    When Palestine is liberated and its people return to it, and the entire region, with the grace of Allah, will have turned into the United States of Islam, the land of Palestine will become the capital of the Islamic Caliphate, and all these countries will turn into states within the Caliphate. When this happens, any Palestinian will be able to live anywhere, because the land of Islam is the property of all Muslims.

    Until this happens, we must reject all the resettlement plans, naturalization, or even reparations prior to the return of the refugees.
    […]
