Osama Bin Laden has now become an environmentalist. No, this is not a headline from Jon Stewart. In a statement released yesterday Bin Laden wants the whole world to abandon trade with the U.S. and stop the use of the dollar as a global currency because he accuses this country of causing global warming. Says Bin Laden, "Talk about climate change is not an ideological luxury but a reality. All of the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis."
Is he getting desperate because his jihadist messages are no longer resonating with his fellow Muslims? Does anybody think the Palestinians, the ones he claims to be fighting jihad for, care a rat's a** about global warming? I think Bin Laden is taking a page from Al Gore and trying to court the elite Hollywood crowd. He may even get an Oscar or a Nobel Peace Prize if he continues this new anti-Western message. Knowing the candidates the Nobel Peace Prize committee have rewarded, they may just give one to him.
