    One thought on “Messages to the World: The Statements of Osama Bin Laden

    1. Tim on said:

      By far the best collection of resources towards understanding not only the primary figurehead enemy of the west, but the whole movement that has coalesced around radical Islam.Going beyond news reports and actually reading the rhetoric communicated to his followers, a picture of Bin Laden as an extremely talented orator, with from his twisted perspective rational goals emerges, instead of just a raging hater of all things western.The collection includes extremely useful footnotes, especially wit [...]

    2. Angel on said:

      The good thing about this book, besides the text of Osama s words and messages, is that it is very well annotated Anytime Osama uses references to the Qu ran or other Islamic works, it is identified in the footnotes Also, other people, events, and so on are identified in order to provide context At times, looking at some of the footnotes can be interesting However, this is not exactly a page turner, part of the reason I gave it only two stars It is a bit slow reading Yet, Osama emerges as a very [...]

    3. Tori Jo Lau on said:

      It is very interesting to read what bin Laden is actually saying, as our media shows very little of his opinions The texts are supplemented by the comments of an academic, to set it in context I don t agree with much of what Osama bin Laden states on anything, in a way But it s interesting to see that he is using logic in his statement Twisted, confused logic, but logic nonetheless It s not frothing at the mouth, it is intelligent, well written statements This only makes him terrifying.

    4. Kevin Qroft on said:

      Don t believe the shameless fucks on TV, read the primary texts for yourself The importance of this book cannot be understated Based on fighting the messages contained in this text the US launched what is an ongoing imperial project with no end in sight.

    5. Elliott Bignell on said:

      This collection of translated and annotated statements represents a unique historical record of a defining and divisive figure Although bin Laden appears to have been retired for some time, this shy do gooder enjoyed a certain Robin Hood status in the Islamic world, as if he had tried to reform their world solely by force of alms Given the possible consequences, it is worth understanding why I happened, due to a backlog, to buy it some time before bin Laden s death and read it after, so it has g [...]

    6. Owen on said:

      Required reading for anyone trying to make sense of what s going on in the Middle East and the Muslim world generally And maybe importantly, it exposes some of the myths that have been built around the man as lies, and portrays him as a pious and warm hearted man who has felt moved by his God into taking action for his people He is not so unlike Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr except in terms of the strategic approach he has chosen to obtain such a liberation.

    7. Shane on said:

      I read this book because it seemed crazy that I had seen so few of the words from someone who has been such a powerful figure in recent history Reading his speeches definitely took away the mystery I would have liked a little context for the speeches and he people bin Laden refers to, but to do so might have made it too long.

    8. Ted on said:

      Really Liked It doesn t really fit, because I Really Did NOT like it.But, I and everyone who cares about others needs to know what is said in this book Cliff Notes on it would be better.At least everyone should read the first paragraph s of each chapter, cause they re kinda like chapter summaries forewords in advance.

    9. Pat Schakelvoort on said:

      Very good read For the people who want to know what Bin Laden really thinks I like the part where he states that muslims who died in attacks in non muslim countries were breaking the islamic law and they shouldn t be there in the first place.

    10. Jen on said:

      A fascinating insight into bin Laden s worldview This is a must read for anyone seeking to understand what motivates Islamic fundamentalist terrorism and why extremist groups are gaining the support of moderate Muslims.

    11. Royce Ratterman on said:

    12. Deborah on said:
