Since I do not have the expertise that these people whom I am going to direct you to have, I think it best to do this in that manner.

Here are some of the sources:

Laura Mansfield web site: Bin Laden stresses martyrdom in short segment of new As Sahab video.

Video Web Link from Laura Mansfield web site.

CNN: Newly released bin Laden video calls for martyrdom.

ABC News: Possible New Message From Osama Bin Laden.

FOX News: Osama Bin Laden Appears in New Video, Officials Probe Authenticity.

Hadeeth Sunnah Sahih Bukhari, Book 52. Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad). Quote from Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54.

I would personally go to Laura Mansfield’s and Counter Terrorism Blog for any serious discussion of what is happening in the world today. They are very prolific in history as well.

“In the next place, the state governments are, by the very theory of the constitution, essential constituent parts of the general government. They can exist without the latter, but the latter cannot exist without them.”

Joseph Story (Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833); Reference: Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 191.

Will somebody please that to Congress?

“Tis folly in one Nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its Independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favours and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect, or calculate upon real favours from Nation to Nation. ‘Tis an illusion which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.”

George Washington (Farewell Address, 19 September 1796); Reference: Washington’s Maxims, 71.

This needs to be taught in our schools. Every grade!

“Remember, my Eliza, you are a Christian.”

Alexander Hamilton (speaking to his grieving wife, 7/12/1804); Reference: Facts and Documments…, Editor of the Evening Post, ed. (23); original letter from David Hosack, August 17, 1804.

What a MAN! Woohoo! Where did they all go?

“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

Thomas Jefferson (fair copy of the drafts of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, 1798); Reference: respect. Quoted.

b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000. c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Now think about this . . ..

Guns:
a. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
b. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
c. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.
_________________
Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. _________________
Remember, “Guns don’t kill people; doctors do.” FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR. _________________
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand! _________________
Note: Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

With gracious gratitude to my brother, who knows how I feel about that them doctors, I would like to tip my hat! Oh yes, and gun RIGHTS, too! Thank you, Mr. GrassRoots.
