al-Jazeera releases transcript of bin Laden recording

Bin Laden: West waging a crusade

Aljazeera has aired an audiotape attributed to Osama bin Laden in which he attacks the West for boycotting Hamas and accuses Western governments of waging a "crusader war" against Islam. FULL STORY -->

Transcript: Bin Laden accuses West
Hamas distances itself from Bin Laden
Timeline: Al-Qaeda tapes

A full Arabic transcript of the audiotaped message can be read here on Aljazeera's Arabic website.

However, an interesting development from Hamas after the release of bin-Laden's rant:

Hamas Distances Itself From Bin Laden AP - Sun Apr 23, 2:45 PM ET
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The Islamic militant group Hamas distanced itself Sunday from purported comments by Osama bin Laden accusing the United States and Europe of supporting a "Zionist" war on Islam by cutting off funds to the Palestinian government.

Could it be that bin-Laden is not as appreciated has he thought he was. It is convenient that he did not give a damn about the Palestinian people until after 9/11. He tried to use them to justify killing 3000 people in New York. Hamas may not want bin-Laden's help.
