Osama vs. PETA

Another Gem from LGF! Osama Bin Laden back in 2002 said (in a letter of “grievance” to the United States) that one of the causes of Islam attacking America is we hadn’t signed the Kyoto treaty. For those who are watchers of the show Friends and listen to shock jocks, Kyoto is a United Nation document that is geared towards cutting emissions from countries in the hope to curb Global Warming. I guess The Islamicists are incorporating modern science into the Sharia law after all!

John Mitchell, chief scientist at Britain’s Met Office, noted al Qaeda had already listed environmental damage among its litany of grievances against the United States.

“You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries,” al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden wrote in a 2002 “letter to the American people.”

If people are willing to take down buildings for the sake of cutting emissions of my car so we can get the earth to possibly not heat up a half-degree more than usual, I think they should be honorary members of Greenpeace, PETA, and others:


Pipe bombs are set off outside the headquarters of pharmaceutical company Chiron Corp. first at 2:55 a.m. and then at 4 a.m. Damage is limited to a few broken windows. Police spend the morning securing the site where approximately 2,000 employees work. A bomb squad detonated a suspicious package, but it is found to not be an explosive. Responsibility for the attack is claimed the next day by the “Animal Liberation Brigade”—believed to be a cell of the Animal Liberation Front. It is stated in a communiqué issued to other animal rights organizations that Chiron was targeted because of its ties to drug tester Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). It warns Chiron that, "This is the endgame for the animal killers and if you choose to stand with them [HLS] you will be dealt with accordingly. There will be no quarter given, no more half measures taken. You might be able to protect your buildings, but can you protect the homes of every employee?"
