Bin Laden Urges Jihad Against Israel

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden has issued a
new audiotape urging Muslims to launch a jihad, or holy war, to
stop the Israeli offensive in Gaza.
Bin Laden also condemns Arab governments for preventing their
people from acting to "liberate Palestine."
The tape has been posted on Islamic militant Web sites where
al-Qaida usually issues its messages. The authenticity of the tape
cannot be independently confirmed. But the voice resembles that of
bin Laden in previous messages.
The Israeli air and ground offensive to stop rocket fire from
Gaza's Hamas rulers is in its 19th day. Palestinian health
officials estimate more than 940 Palestinians, half of them
civilians, have died.

    Why hasn't this man been captured? Try not paying your taxes, the government can find you no matter where you go, but they can't find this terrorist hiding in a [edited] cave.

    Is this a shock to anyone? Killing infidels is all they know.
