The National Post, the most beligerant and obnoxious of all the warmongering Zionist-friendly newspapers in Canada, published this photo of OBL the day after the 9/11 attacks, making him look like some kind of benign Muslim saint, in very large format, on the front page of the D section.  My apologies  are offered to my faithful readers for all the hyphenation and other weird anomalies in copying the type from the original article, which seems to be deliberately messed up to confound such anti-globalist historian copiers as myself.  I tried to clean up the article and reformat it for easier reading, but failed.

Concerned Citizens’ Conspiracy
Osama bin Laden is shown in April, 1998, in Afghanistan. The terrorist leader reportedly lives modestly in a cave in eastern Afghanistan with his four wives and some 15 children.
The legions that hate America
The West’s anger at yesterday’shorrible terrorist attacks ragedagainst one man, Osama binLaden — a shadowy Saudi-bornmilitant who for the past five years has actively declared holy  war against the United Statesfrom bases in Afghanistan andSudan.
Bin Laden believes terror is his“heavenly decree,” and in the lastfew years, he has reportedly fi-nanced some of the most devas-tating terrorist attacks againstU.S. installations.
Three years ago, he founded theInternational Islamic Front for Jihad against the Jews and theCrusaders, and is now one of thekey backers of an army of thou-sands of Islamic fundamentalists willing to die in the jihad, or holy  war, against the United Statesand its allies.
In addition to yesterday’s at-tacks in New York and Washing-ton, bin Laden has been blamed for the 1996 terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia that resulted in the deaths of 19 U.S. soldiers, and has been indicted in a U.S.court forhis alleged role in the 1998 bomb-ing of U.S.embassies in Tanzaniaand Kenya, which killed 224 people.
Terrorism experts believe he was behind last year’s attack onthe USS Cole, an American war-ship stationed in Yemen, which killed 17 U.S. sailors.
He is also implicated in the December,1992, attack on a Yemeni hotel that injured several tourists andin an assassination attempt on Hosni Mubarak, then the Egyptian president, in Ethiopia in June1995.
Reacting to the U.S.embassy at-tacks in Africa three years ago,former U.S. president Bill Clin-ton called bin Laden “the pre-em-inent organizer and financier of international terrorism in the world today.”
In retaliation for the bombings, the United States then launched cruise missiles againstterrorist objectives in Sudan and Afghanistan.
Terrorism experts believe militant Islamic regimes in Sudanand Afghanistan have been colluding with bin Laden for years toattack U.S.installations world- wide.
Over the last 20 years, both countries have been instrumentalto bin Laden’s rise in the radical Islamist underground.
To thousands of fundamentalist Muslims around the world, bin Laden is a great hero who has bankrolled radical Muslim groups from Afghanistan to the Balkans to Chechnya.
He has paid for the training of thousands of young militant Muslims incamps in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and has close ties to some of the radical Muslim world’s strongest leaders and to sworn enemies of the United States, including Iraq’s Saddam Hussein.
In the West, he is public enemy number one — today, the world’smost wanted man.
“To date, bin Laden is the only terrorist leader to have formally declared a jihad — holy war —against the United States,” says Yossef Bodansky, a military analyst and the director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare.
“And he has done so numerous times since 1996, reinforcing his original call to arms with additional and more specific decrees as his theological and command authority has grown.”
Yet the man for whom the U.S.government has put up a US$5-million bounty does not quite fit the mould of the evil genius intent on the destruction of the world’s greatest superpower.

Not Islam as practised peacefully by millions of the faithful around the world. But a specific fringe political movement … ”

Some experts say attacks might have been too complex for bin Laden
 As smoke billowed from New York and Washington after yesterday’s surprise terrorist attacks, blame fell quickly on Osama binLaden — but the list of suspects is longer than that.
There is no shortage of fanatics around the world who would love to cause mayhem in the heart of  America, from the Japanese Red Army to Colombia’s FARC rebels to the Palestinian guerrillas at war with Israel.
And it must be recalled that af-ter the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, bin Laden was immediately fingered as the culprit, until investigators discovered those responsible were American militia types angry over the Waco siege.
Few organizations, however, have the sophistication, anti- American fervour and callous disregard for civilians necessary to pull off the type of co-ordinated hijacking-suicide attacks witnessed yesterday. The exception is those groups and governments involved in the jihad, the global holy war whose foot soldiers believe it is their religious duty to battle Americans and Jews.
Bin Laden, a wealthy Saudi recluse who defeated the Soviets in Afghanistan and went on to launch a global holy war against American influence, is without question a key figure in the jihad.
But in the absence of firm evidence, it may be simplistic to lay the blame entirely at his feet.
Isolated in Afghanistan and closely watched by Western intelligence agents, he is not necessarily the puppet master of international terrorism many make himout to be.
Rather, he is the most visible and well-known face of a worldwide Islamic-inspired terrorist movement whose misguided followers believe violence is justified to counter what they consider to be the world’s anti-Islamic forces, namely the United States, Israel and their allies.

    Watching Richard Gage narrating the new film Architects and Engineers Speak Out, it is striking how many of these courageous professionals call the damning forensic scientific evidence of controlled demolition in NY on September 11, 2001, that of a criminal enterprise.

    All of my fellow historians in Canada should follow the lead of these people, investigate the evidence with an open mind, draw the obvious conclusions and speak out now.

    To avoid doing so amounts to complicity in a crime, in my humble opinion.

    As long as Harper says nothing, he is part of the conspiracy to lie to the people of the world about the greatest crime of our age.
