Osama Bin-Ladin's Friends and Supporters

In all honesty, I had been hoping to give the Osama Bin Laden posts a rest; I had had enough of him.  But then  I got a PMW Bulletin:

It piqued my curiosity. Here's the introduction:

Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Arabic:

The Islamic nation "is capable of supplying an abundance of new blood... [for] restoring the glory of Islam and the flag of Allah's oneness."

Ma'an's translation into English:

"We are ready to sacrifice our lives to bring back peace."
The United States is lucky.  It seemed to have had only one terrorist enemy.  We in Israel have an unlimited supply according to those statements.  How many of those terrorists-in-waiting would like to "work" in the USA is a good question.  On CNN today I heard a former Bin-Laden sister-in-law being interviewed.  It was a very strange interview from what I could follow.  The interviewer kept trying to offer sympathy and condolences to the woman and the family.  She made it clear that she identifies with America and has no sympathies for her former in-laws.

The more being revealed, the more questions.  Osama Bin-Ladin was not "cave hopping."  He was in a large protected* compound in a good area of Pakistan.  There's no way that the Pakistanis didn't know.  A bit of trivia for you.  Between 1948 and 1967 only two countries recognized Jordan's rule over Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.  One was Great Britain and the other was Pakistan.

*Protected by whom?  Apparently he had been there for years.  It was no big secret.  Bin-Ladin had his friends in the Pakistan military.  A couple of hours ago on the international TV news, they showed people from India who want the world to realize how dangerous Pakistan is.

And now for some irony.  United States President Barack Hussein Obama's support in the Arab world has gone down with the execution of Bin-Ladin.  I just hope this won't encourage him to put more pressure on us to swallow the establishment of a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic State.  There's no Heimlich maneuver that could save us from choking on that.

There's been some discussion on TV as to why the US did not involved Pakistan in the military move to kill Bin Laden.

Thank G-d we didn't.

Israel would be a lot safer if we'd cease consulting, asking permission.

News reports say that the US knew Osama was at the Pakistan residence for a year yet didn't act earlier. WHY? I find it curious that Obama finally released an authentic birth certificate in response to Donald Trump's charges and this within days of the allies killing Gadaffi's 28 year old son and 3 grandchildren - and then took out Osama rendering the body fish food at sea - no body, no proof. I'm NOT into conspiracy theories but it does make one wonder if Obama is attempting to put himself in a better position for another Presidential term.

Oddly the Moslem world doesn't seem to be responding with the anger and hostility we'd expect - power keg waiting to explode.After all, Osama was just a man following a putrid ideology - leaving one gone and trillions of followers.

Consulting is for businesses, Batya. Israel needs to act as a sovereign nation looking out for and acting in her best interests... especially over our national security.

Sara, Amir Oren had the same idea: http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/opinion/bin-laden-s-scalp-is-better-than-a-birth-certificate-for-obama-1.359540

I hadn't seen it, Hadassa - thanks for the heads up!

Obama is running for office again. That's what it's all about.

What, "There's no Heimlich maneuver that could save us from choking on that"?

Come on friend. We are a supra-natural people; That means we transcend Nature. You know that too, but why forget? Are we not one sheep among 70 wolves, and have survived all these millennia; Have we not got back our Holy Land? Don't tell me that was just some coincidence. I understand that the template of Nature prevails for the world at large - but for us Jews, we cannot absolutely take it as absolute!

van, Six Days War in 1967 was a rescue. We may have used up the "3 wishes."
