OBL: Spend Less On War, More On Welfare

From his undying fans at the Associated Press:

Bin Laden: Relief body needed for Muslim countries

By Hadeel Al-shalchi [sic], Associated Press Writer
October 1, 2010

CAIRO – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden called for the creation of a new relief body to help Muslims in an audiotape released Friday, seeking to exploit discontent following this summer’s devastating floods in Pakistan by depicting the region’s governments as uncaring.

It was the third message in recent weeks from al-Qaida figures concerning the massive floods that affected around 20 million people in Pakistan, signaling a concentrated campaign by the terror group to tap into anger over the flooding to rally support

"What governments spend on relief work is secondary to what they spend on armies," bin Laden says on the 11-minute tape titled "Reflections on the Method of Relief Work."

"If governments spent (on relief) only one percent of what is spent on armies, they would change the face of the world for poor people," he said.

Actually, if we could wipe out all the terrorists like Mr. Bin Laden, just think of all the money governments could save on counter-terrorism. And that money could help a lot of poor people.

Maybe Mr. Bin Laden should help the poor out by killing himself. That is, if he isn’t dead already.

The top al-Qaida leader said a new "well-funded" relief organization should be created to study Muslim regions near bodies of water to prevent future flooding, to create development projects in impoverished regions and to work on farming and agriculture to guarantee food security.

"The famine and drought in Africa that we see, and the flooding in Pakistan and other parts of the world, with thousands dead along with millions of refugees, that’s why people with hearts should move quickly to save their brothers and sisters," he said…

It’s almost as if Mr. Bin Laden is appealing to our Christian charity.

In any case, Mr. Obama will surely take heed and send all these poor Muslim countries in the Middle East a few more billion dollars that we will borrow from China.

International donors have pledged more than $800 million for flood relief in Pakistan, the bulk of it coming from the United States which has donated nearly $350 million. The United Nations last month hiked up its call for aid, seeking to raise $2 billion for Pakistan’s flood victims, its largest humanitarian appeal ever…

Gosh, the United Nations is noble. Meanwhile, it really is a shame that there are no wealthy Muslim countries anywhere who could help out.

    Now it’s official.

    Based on the AP “quoting” him, it is 100% clear that Bin Laden is dead.

    • BannedbytheTaliban says:

      He has become the spokesman for the liberal cause du jour lately.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Either Soros has him in an ICU suit in a bunker somewhere, training him in the ways of the Force, i.e. Marx, Global Warming and Statism, or he’s dead. It’s tough but I’m trending towards the latter.

      This is the Associated (with Terror) Propogandists after all.

    Hmm, sounds like someone who commented in one of the other articles. Wonder if OLB has been posting on S&L under an assumed name.

  3. Rusty Shackleford says:

    He’s still using “audiotape”? That is sooooOOOooo 90’s.

    • David says:

      Seriously its 2010, what self respecting terrorist doesn’t podcast? He must not have heard that terrorist use the internet now.

  4. JohnMG says:

    “…..”What governments spend on relief work is secondary to what they spend on armies,” bin Laden says…..”

    Where’s Jimmy Carter? Anybody seen Jimmy lately? Why don’t you ever see the two of them on stage at the same time?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  5. canary says:

    Obama’s already performing Osama bin Laden’s one request:
    “…. a new “well-funded” relief organization should be created to study Muslim regions near bodies of water to prevent future flooding…..”

    It’s Obama’s U.S. partnership with muslim countries. For example the U.S. partnership with Indonesia. Deep water exploration studying volcano activity (to include causing them to blow up) & study sea life. Our highest technology & ship, underwater robots, U.S. scientists were sent there at the time of the BP spill. It’s easy to google.

    Osama & Obama and their saving the world connection, but putting themselves as the most valuable humans on the earth. What a personality disorder.

  6. beautyofreason says:

    Well that should be a hint. The rhetoric of Democrats and terrorists grows closer every year. Now it reflects the mainstream left (wealth redistribution), not just the anti-American sentiments of foreign policy kooks like Ward Churchill.

    What noble commentary on philanthropy from a man who ran over the family’s pet monkey and told his kids that it was a Jew cursed by Allah. He’s a true Al Gore, an environmental icon when not on call blowing up non-Muslims.

    As for Pakistan, that cesspool is duplicitous and ungrateful. I am not thrilled to have them as a ally.

    • proreason says:

      “grows closer ”

      I thought they were indistinguishable starting in Feb 2009.

    • beautyofreason says:

      Well proreason, when OBL starts touting the (claimed) benefits of organic food and phasing out the incandescent light bulbs in his cave in Afghanistan / Pakistan then I will consider them identical. But you’re right – strange how two diametrically opposed worldviews congeal on more than a few points, especially w/ Obama’s crew. What you say about an alliance of convenience may be accurate.

      ;)

    proof of life demanded … The poor fellow is long since dead.

    Trying to hoodwink Christians is a typical ploy out of the con-man playbook. Just ask Mr. Obama.

    NOBEL PEACE PRIZE—he’ll get one.

    *Arab Billionaires own about 4% of the world’s wealth…

    Rush said today (paraphrasing), just take off Binny Boy’s headscarf and shave that beard and he could run as a Democrat on any ballot in the nation.

    Such a typical liberal – OBL – “YOU give up your money or you’re not being ‘good’ and ‘holy'” – well all I can say is YOU FIRST and my life and my judgment is between me & God. You two-faces and distorting and hypocritically smearing me liars (You don’t know me) can go to hell – You are not my father, you are not my husband, you are not my religious leader – STFU and tend to your own life.

    Yes, it is no wonder that the Left loves these people – both of these groups sole intention is to destroy the FREEDOM and PERSONAL WEALTH AND LIBERTY that is AMERICA. And I have to ask – If they actually are successful – who in the World is going to be able to save all these 3rd World countries from themselves – China?

    Oh yes I vote for Dead, long dead. Proof of life AP – You are not called Associated (with Terrorists) Press for nothing – you can do it – and after you are done getting that – how ’bout BHO’s birth certificate. Maybe you can single handedly restore some research and un-biased cred to the entire msm – come on – PROVE ME WRONG.

    God Help America
    A Proud American Infidel

    Some said Hurricane Katrina was an act of God to punish a wicked city of New Orleans for it’s evil ways, maybe the flooding of Pakistan was Allah’s way of flushing out the tribal territories of Pakistan.
