Big surprise – Bin Laden calls for jihad against Israel

January 14, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Like an evil Punxsutawney Phil, Osama Bin Laden crawled out from under a rock again, sniffed the air and declared jihad again. Bin Laden issued a new audiotape with his favorite word, urging Muslims to launch a jihad, i.e. holy war, to stop the Israeli offensive in Gaza.  Likely Osama himself plans to sit this one out in some cave in Pakistan.

The Al-Qaida chief also condemns Arab governments for preventing their people from acting to “liberate Palestine.”

The Israeli offensive is in its 19th day, aimed at stopping rocket fire from Gaza’s Hamas rulers .

The tape was posted Wednesday on Islamic militant Web sites where al-Qaida usually issues its messages, but  the authenticity of the tape has not been independently confirmed.
