The Wisdom of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda
In the barracks of Osama bin Laden --
Ahlan wa sahlan!
Another day of happy annual of September 11th has come upon us. By the Will of Allah (Subhanahu wa-Ta'ala) in the year 2001, the brave Moslem men took in to the perilous task of defending their Faith and Family from the clutches of an imperialistic expansionist empire, The United States of America. The aim of such action was to send a ever-piercing message to the Western World: You are exploiting our people and our generosity and the present course of action must stop or the whole Moslem world will declare Jihad against the profane empire of USA.
As a humble and devout Moslem man, people usually come to see my opinion on the incident of September the 11th, asking my insight on it. Their faces tend to drop when I tell them that the strike was fully justified both on political and religious level.
Our Faith Islaam as told by the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) encourages us to defend our Faith in two levels, the Defensive Jihad being the principle that it is a responsibility for every capable Moslem to defend the homes of their brothers in Faith under attack, the Offensive Jihad being the procedure to tax the ungodly people in the name of Allah. Clearly this incident was not a form of Offensive Jihad but a defensive act. That act was to announce the world that we are under constant oppression of Western forces: the cultural imperialism implied by the "free" market and international banks, and denial of our freedom to worship God as the Prophet taught us over a millenium ago and our right to the land we inhabit.
Let the words of the great Moslem devotee Osama bin Mohammed bin Ladin mark my words:
"The Americans impose themselves on everyone who believes in his religion and his rights. They accuse our children in Palestine of being terrorists. Those children that have no weapons and have not even reached maturity. At the same time they defend a country with its airplanes and tanks, and the state of the Jews, that has a policy to destroy the future of these children."
You Americans know how to explain freedom as a grammatically arranged list of words, transliterating for a definate moment of individual pursuit for happiness and commerce. As such, is there anything else to your lives? Like freedom.. to worship God? But how can there ever be freedom to pursuit God if you keep pursuiting material substances and indulgence? Happiness is in God, not in tangential objects and meritless self-indulgence.
Frankly, your modern lifestyle disgusts me -- you have sacrificed nearly all of the noble features of the generation of the Founding Fathers in order to achieve - what? In a life as a busy little bee trying to get her share of honey it must be a kingdom come to have the power to choose with your wallet, but who has laid the selected range of options in front of you? Did you not make limitations to guarantee "freedom"? More importantly, who are the ones to finally pay to cost for your fallen souls? The planet on the brink of an environmental disaster? The culture and art being overrun by business and commerce? Native peoples losing their ethnicity in exchange for "easy living"? Your children ruining their lives in apathy and suiciding?
Indeed, the freedom will not come without a high price.
I wish you all much of tolerance and wisdom to choose correctly.
Happy September the 11th to you all. -- God bless.

"Open your chest welcoming death in the path of God and utter your prayer seconds before you go to your target." "Let your last words be, There is no God but God and Mohammad is His messenger. Then, inshallah, you will be in heavens."
"We declared jihad against the US government, because the US government is unjust, criminal and tyrannical. It has committed acts that are extremely unjust, hideous and criminal whether directly or through its support of the Israeli occupation of the Prophet's Night Travel Land (Palestine). And we believe the US is directly responsible for those who were killed in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq. The mention of the US reminds us before everything else of those innocent children who were dismembered, their heads and arms cut off in the recent explosion that took place in Qana (in Lebanon). This US government abandoned even humanitarian feelings by these hideous crimes. It transgressed all bounds and behaved in a way not witnessed before by any power or any imperialist power in the world." - Osama bin Laden
The American Nihilist Underground Society advocates nihilism, or a removal of interpretive layers from our perception of physical reality, as a means of transcending illusion. Nihilism denies value and purpose, which are byproducts of the human desire to judge reality and make a consensual "social reality" that by seizing on a single material factor misses the intelligible, or design-based, knowledge we need to adapt to reality. ANUS has been promoting nihilism since 1987.
Nihilism is the belief that nothing we perceive has Absolute value; reality exists, but beyond its inherent meaning to us as the physical container of our existence, it has no significance outside of what we perceive. "The world is my representation," indeed. When we strip away all of the values projected onto physical reality and its outcomes, we are left only with personal ideal and natural ideal, and bringing the former into adaptation with the latter is the lifetime task to which nihilism is a gateway.
