    Two Arab TV channels have broadcast an audiotape said to be from Osama Bin Laden in which he offers Europe a truce if it "stops attacking Muslims".

    But in the tape, aired by al-Arabiya and al-Jazeera satellite channels, the voice said the initiative would not be extended to the US, Reuters reported.

    The person on the tape also vowed to avenge Israel's killing of Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.

    A European security source said the tape appeared to be authentic.

    However, the source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said officials had not yet completed their evaluation.

    The CIA in Washington said it was also still examining the tape.

  2. I wouldn't be surprised if this makes the populations of a few European countries start jumping up and down, and start trying to force the government to withdraw troops because of their fear of terrorist strikes in their country.
    Provided it's the real deal, of course...
     
  3. Blair would not accept it even if it was genuine.

    There is no way he would leave Georgey boy and his free nation to fend for themelves. Not when there is political mileage to be gained.

    Blair is now committed to Bush`s plans all the way to the end, well until the US elections. :lol:
     
  4. Why don't we invite him to come to London and talk about it.
     
  5. How great and uncompromising our government is.

    Jack Staw says it is inconceivable that the UK would negotiate with terrorists.

    Not in relation to Northern Ireland where they bend over backwards to capitulate and suck up to terrorists who have killed almost as many innocents as AQ.

    What a GREAT country we live in.

    Gore.
