Osama Bin Ladin Tape
By Micah Halpern

Friday January 16, 2009

I've Been Thinking:

Osama bin Laden released a new audio tape.
In this version he calls on Muslim masses to rally 'round and jihad against Israel, the United States and any inactive Arab leaders who have done nothing to defend Hamas.

Bin Laden released this tape because he needs to show that:
- He and al Qaeda are still players and their positions have not been usurped.

- He can be as forceful as Iran which has, until now, single handedly spearheaded the assault against everyone not in support of Hamas.

- He cannot allow Shiite Iran to be the defender of Sunni Hamas.

- He views what is happening as the perfect historical example of monarchs and dictators in the Muslim world with no real pan-Islamic ideals. He can use this opportunity to demonstrate that these leaders are more closely linked to the West than to the Islamic ideology of Hamas and al Qaeda.

Bin Ladin knows the world of PR.
Bin Ladin knows that the Arab street or vox populi feel for the suffering of the Palestinians.
Bin Ladin wants to ride that wave.
