Claims bin Laden will soon set up state
May 24, 2005 - 5:39AM

An alleged militant on trial for a terror conspiracy targeting the US and Israeli embassies has claimed terror masterminds Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi will soon set up a Muslim caliphate state.

Abed al-Tahawi made the statement in brief remarks to reporters before the military court convened to hear the prosecution sum up its case in his trial.

"Although they accuse them of being terrorists, the heroes Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi will come back to the scene soon to set up an Islamic caliphate state," he said.

Al-Tahawi, 50, and 15 other men - including one at large who is being tried in absentia - are charged with conspiring to carry out terrorist attacks and possessing automatic rifles. If convicted on both counts, the defendants could face the death penalty.

Saudi-born bin Laden has long advocated the creation of a caliphate, where Islam would be the source of the law and the state ruled by a religious leader, known as the caliph - a title taken by the successors of the prophet Muhammad.
Zarqawi, a Jordanian, is al-Qaeda's top man in Iraq. He is believed to be directing anti-US attacks and kidnappings in Iraq, and his group has beheaded several hostages. He has been sentenced to death in Jordan for the 2002 killing of a US aid worker in the kingdom.

At the outset of the trial in March, the 15 men in police custody refused to speak when asked to enter their pleas - a sign which the court interpreted as a plea of not guilty. The defendants later argued that their guilty confessions were extracted by force by the military prosecution, and demanded chief prosecutor Lieutenant-Colonel Mahmoud Obeidat take the witness stand.

Court president Colonel Fawaz Buqour rejected the demand during the hearing, but did not give a reason.

The hearing was adjourned until next Monday, when the defence begins.

Obeidat's indictment claims al-Tahawi pursued the ideology of "takfiri" - a policy of killing anybody considered to be an infidel. He recruited his accomplices while preaching in mosques in Irbid, 80km north of the capital.

The indictment claims the group planned to target a hotel in Irbid favoured by Israeli tourists, the Amman home of the director of an annual Jordanian cultural event which hosts western artists and Americans performing at the festival.

The festival usually takes place in July at the Roman ruin city of Jerash, 32km north of Amman.

It did not say how or when the accused planned to carry out the attacks. They were apprehended in August and September before the attacks were launched.

That is what I am thinking too. I believe that it would be better to happen sooner than later. Muslims kill hundreds of different peoples around the world each day. They are a cult like cancer that is slowly consuming the world.

I think it needs a push. I am going to flush a koran. I need a video camera.

Hey guys,
I'm over here in Afghanistan right now. I actually work with the HCN's (host country nationals). Their beliefs and religion is a joke. Afghani's are Muslims. They pray (or perry as they call it) 5 times a day. But these guys will cuss, look at porn, make fun of people, ect faster than a non-christian person. They blow my mind of what and how they believe. I asked them if they pray for forgiveness. They said no. Because if it is wrong, they shouldn't have done it and it will not be forgived by their God. They say they only pray for peace and a better life. Of course on a side note, we had a rocket and mortar attack that night. When I first got here, I felt sorry for them. Now I just tolerate them and their hipocrate beliefs. But if the next war is between us and them, At least I know that I'm on the winning side.

I would LOVE to see a fanatical, jihadist Muslim state.


We could even prop them up with weapons and charitable donations before we nuke the shit out of them...

It would be convenient to have them all grouped into one place.
