“On 18 October [2003] bin Laden posted a videotaped message on Internet sites urging Iraqis to ‘wage a holy war against the American Crusaders in Iraq;’ additional messages from unnamed militants included one in clear English: ‘We want all Christians and Jews to go out from our Islamic countries and release our brothers from jail and stop killing Muslims or we will kill you.’ The message adds: ‘We promise we will not let you live safely, and you will see nothing from us but bombs, fire, destroying homes and cutting heads.’ “
