“It is now clear that it is Israel that is behind all the attacks on states in the Islamic world… the Jews were able to employ American and British Christians to do the job of attacking Iraq. America claims that it is bringing Iraq to account and to justice, but the fact is that the Israeli authority and the Jewish authority, which has become powerful inside the White House, as everyone can see—the Defence Minister is Jewish, the Secretary of State is Jewish, the CIA and National Security officials are Jewish, all the biggest officials are Jews—led the Christians to clip the wings of the Islamic world.”Bruce Lawrence, trans., Messages to the World: The Statements of Osama Bin Laden (London: Verso, 2005), 67.
