” The freedom that we want is not the freedom of lowly rascal America. It is not the freedom of the usurious banks and the giant companies and the misleading Mass Media Organizations. It is not the freedom to ruin others fot the sake of one’s own material interests. It is not the freedom of AIDS and the industry of atrocities and same-sex marriage. It is not the freedom of gambling and wine and the breakdown of the family, and the freedom for women to be used as a commodity for bringing in customers and signing deals, and attacking passengers, and selling goods. It is not the freedom of two-faces principles and the division of the people into looters and looted. It is not the freedom of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
It is not the freedom trading torture systems, and of supporting the system used to defeat and suppress others at the hands of America’s friends. It is not the freedom of Israel in the extermination of the Muslims and the destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Judaization of Palestine.
It is not the freedom of Guantanamo and Abu Ghareb. It is not the freedom of the bombing of Al Sagadi, with seven ton bombs and cluster bombs, and dropping leaflets and depleted uranium, and destroying villages of Afghanistan and Iraq. It is not the blood suckers or the freedom that comes from the monopoly of weapons of mass destruction, and prohibiting others from developing them. It is not the freedom of decision of those in the monopoly of the International Community, where four of the five senior members of Crusaders.
Our freedom is the freedom of unity and manners and chastity and fairness and justice.
And therefore, any reform that seeks that freedom depends on three things:
– Rule of the Qu’ran
– Liberation of the homelands
– Liberation of the people
They will be come about except through jihad, and struggle, and more struggle, and martyrdom. They will not come about unless we eject the enemies from our homes, and seize our rights with the power of jihad. The enemies will not leave our homes if we show kindness of ask them.
And in this greatest battle the role of our young men has become clear taking into consideration that their leadership in battle has spoiled- thank God- the plans of the Crusaders and the Jews in Afghanistan and Iraq and Palestine and Chechnya.
The Muslim young men must spread this battle against the Jews and the Crusaders as far as possible on the earth, and they must threaten their interests everywhere, and not allow them rest or stability.
In this, the greatest battle, the role of money is confirmed as the nerve center of the war, and as its fuel. ”
