Bin Laden message warns France to pull out of Afghanistan

A speaker claiming to be terrorism mastermind Osama bin Laden warned in an audiotape aired Friday that the release of two French journalists abducted by militants hinges on France's military role in Afghanistan.

"We repeat the same message to you," said the speaker in an audio tape played on the Al-Jazeera satellite news network. "The release of your prisoners from the hands of our brethren depends on the withdrawal of your soldiers from our countries."

The speaker, believed to be al Qaeda chief bin Laden, warns the French government that its alliance with the United States will prove costly.

"The dismissal of your President (Nicolas) Sarkozy to get out of Afghanistan is the result of his subservience to the United States and this (dismissal) is considered to be the green signal to kill your prisoners without delay," the speaker said.

He goes on to say that "we will not do that at the time that suits him (Sarkozy) and this position will cost you dearly on all fronts, in France and abroad."

France, however, said it would not deter from its Afghanistan strategy.

"We are determined to stay in Afghanistan with our allies for the Afghan people," said French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero.

Taliban militants captured the journalists - Herve Ghesquiere and Stephane Taponnier from France 3 Television - in December 2009 and threatened to kill them if their demands were not met, including the release of some detainees held by France.

France has 3,750 troops in Afghanistan, according to NATO's International Security Assistance Force.

Al Qaeda's north African wing has made the same withdrawal demands pertaining to the safety of five French nationals abducted in Niger.

- CNN's Saad Abedine contributed to this report.

    Bin Laden has been dead for years, While the U.S. keeps him alive in the american psyche for budgetary reasons in the military, the muslim extremists keeps him alive to continue manipulating their supporters for budgetary reasons as well.

    Say all you want about Islam being a religion of love. The fact of the matter is that a microscopic percentage of the 1.7Billion Muslims in the world are causing chaos, and the rest are doing nothing to stop it.

    While almost 2Billion people sit in there 15th century mindset, this handful of people are attempting to restore the Caliphate.

    It's the "Muslim Street" that needs to resolve this, not bombs.

Expect the worse on this world does not matter which believe you fall under we will all be affected and like are those who will die with Kriste in their Lifes and i feel sorry for those who are still in denial of him. better advise from me Laden do what you were born to do as we all have the purpose in this world and clearly that is your purpose and you are very good on it but you time will come the who know is above.

If we ignore him like a bad smell he will eventually fade away from our hearts and minds and become another name in the history books alongside others like Hitler and Stalin. What do you do when someone sends to you a Spam email? You delete it. Therefore, whenever you see in the media a photo of Bin Laden or see his name mentioned – delete it. Delete him from our planet.

      As long as Osama bin Laden and others of his ilk can convince the uneducated and isolated that their problems are due to someone or something that they can define with a distortion, they will find a following.
      Too often the perpetrators of misery redirect the wrath for that misery onto someone or something that has been deliberately maligned.
      And no, the U.S. is not the one chopping off hands of beggars that steal, beating farmers that don't produce enough for their War Lords, or mutilating women for resisting servitude to their husbands by arranged marriage through purchase or trade. It is sad that women have to be covered in public because the men are incontinent when it comes to controlling their animal instincts for s x.

    Right the Jews are the problem with the Muslin??? Could that be because They exist??? I didn't see Israel attacking the Muslin Country until They were attacked Themselves!!! All the Muslin have to do is make PEACE with Israel and the fighting would end... Blaming the Jews sure doesn't help thing there!!! They were killing Their Own People long before Israel was born...

Just because their are bad people doing bad things it does not make them any part of any group accept for thier own crazy evil group.....and unfortunateley these people and these groups are part of every religion and type of people!!!!!!!!!!!! stop blaming innocent Muslims for the cowardly actions these people are doing.....and further more get over yourselves and go up to some muslims in your neighborhood and ask some questions.

Is it so hard to accept that people have differing beliefs – even within the same religion?? Find two people that belong to the same organization of faith and they could even have different understandings of individual concepts. This doesn't matter!! Whether or not you believe in God, Allah, karma, or the tooth fairy, no person on this earth has the right to tell someone they're beliefs are worthless or incorrect.

      Even if there were a possibility that I was wrong God would not punish me for the life I live, but as for the truth of 360 degrees God would throw the book at you, meaning give you the worst punishment for the life you live if in fact you think you have the right to hand out punishment like you said if you play then you pay. Because it is God's judgment as to how one lives their life not yours! You do not know what is in a mans heart or mind only God knows!

In US there are excellent universities, but 70% of the students are non-americans and most of them will go back to their countries to profit from graduation. Average income in US decreased 4% in the last 10 years and 8% for the blue collars. This is happening while the emerging markets economies are growing.

        @ Salerno- Very true, unfortunately US does not take lower (younger) education seriously, In South Korea, Children go to school 6 days a week and many more hours (in some places more than twice as much as US, yet they don't get AS MUCH EDUCATION ON A SINGLE SUBJECT, yet they do get exposed to FAR MORE subjects- which is really what learning is about until you decide where to specialize. This is a common themes all over the world as well. Teachers in America are unappreciated and underpaid. "You must go to college to make something of your life" is a common theme in American families- yet sadly it really has more to do for the economy of putting taxpayer money back into the US economy than it does as far as bettering ones future. I'm not saying college is a waste of time by any means but for subjects like philosophy, arts and Physics you better be really gifted or work for NASA if you live in the US because education may not "pan out" quite as fast as you expected. And yes, it is a shame that we allow foreign nationals to take this back to their country and make something out of it when US taxpayers are often footing the bill for them in the name of "International Relations", yet this is America and as the sole remaining Super Power, the US does have a responsibility to try to be a good example and help others- maybe it's time we realize "Charity begins at home".

    France (and for that matter, America) would not be particularly vulnerable to a threat from Bin Laden if it wasn't for stupid Mass Immigration policies that have flooded the country with Radical Muslims. Immigration has given al-Qaeda a 5th column in the West to attack any Western nation from the inside. Why do politicians still support Mass Immigration? Are they secret al-Qaeda supporters? Or do they have another excuse for being de facto al-Qaeda allies?

      Dan – I esplained Christians believe Jesus was the Messiah (translation Christos, anointed, prophet). The word prophet comes from greek pro- phemi ( to speak for). It was also called "kurios" meaning lord. Soanointed was the word used for God's envoys, and God's envoys are called prophets becouse they speake for God. So Jesus was a prophet even if the christians use the equivalent greek word Christos. Christos=anointed= messiah=prophet. Not all prophets are born without a father, but this is another question.

      Messiah (anointed) is also a prophet, becouse he is an envoy of God, so beeng sent by God he speaks for Him (pro-phemi).
      The Arabic word for prophet is Nabi. The Arabic word for envoy is Rasull. Not all Nabi are Rasull, but all Rasull are Nabi. So a messiah is automatically also a prophet. You cannot do anything about that becouse it is the intrinsec meaning of the word.
