    Oooooooo I know ! I know !



    Muslims.



    Hope that helps :roll:
     
  2. What ALL muslims,

    they must be quite well off then.
     
  3. Well as they say Tech3 , they just don't know.

    Which is kind of worrying after all this time fighting T.W.A.T
     
  4. Saudi Arabia, surely?
     
  5. I was under, the obviously mistaken impression, that UBL had access to the family pot of cash, and that the rest of the AQ network was funded by the oil indusdy.

    it pays not to assume I suppose
     
  6. I was under the impression a lot of it came from the opium harvest in Afghanistan
     
  7. Washington is probably funding Al-Quaeda. Did they cut\stop funding to the Taleban after the Russians left. Has any one checked. :?
     
  8. as the Saudis amont to 6% of the US economy and its a known fact that the Saudis have financed AQ, its probably the US that are funding them in the long run. :D
     
  9. Proberbly from darkly coloured gentlemen hanging around Irish bars in the States saying things like 'Money for the holy cause effendi', then walking away with a bucketful of dollers provided by gullable yanks.
    Or some such.
     
  10. No, no, they shut down NORAID, remember? Honest guv :roll:
