In Bin Laden’s ‘Second Letter to the Muslims of Iraq,’ recorded and broadcast on October 18, 2003, he said: “I am speaking to Muslims in general, and Iraqis in particular, when I say: beware of supporting America’s crusaders and those who have taken their side, because all those who collaborate with them or belong to them…are unbelievers and apostates. The same judgment applies to all those who support impious political parties, like the Baath, the Kurdish democratic parties, and others like them.”
