(Document page 1) Declaration of Jihad Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holiest Sites. (Expel the infidels from the Arab Peninsula). A message from Usamah Bin Muhammad Bin Ladin Unto his Muslim brethren all over the world ge nerally and the Arabian Peninsula specifically. Praise be to Allah, we seek His help and ask for His pardon. We take refuge in Allah from our wrongs and bad deeds. Whom ever Allah has guided will not be misled, and who ever has been misled, will never be guided. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, no associate with Him and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. {O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be f eared, and die not except in a state of Islam}, {O mankind! Reverence your Guar dian-Lord, Who created you from a single Person, created of like nature, His mate, and from them twain scatte red (like seeds) countless men and women-fear Allah, through Whom ye demand your mutual (rights), and (rev erence) the wombs (that bore you): for Allah ever watches over you}. {O ye who your conduct whole and sound and forgive you your sins: He who obeys Allah and His me ssenger has already attained the highest achievement}. Praise be to Allah Who said: {I only desire (your) betterment to the best of my power; and my success (in my task)}. [Hud:88]. Praise be to Allah Who said: {Y e are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoying what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah}. [Al™Imran: 110]. Peace and Prayers be upon His servant and messenger who said: fiThe people are close to an all encompassing punishment from Allah if they se e the oppressor and fail to restrain himfl. [Prophetic tradition said by Abu Dawud, al-Tarmathy and al-Nisa™i]. Here thereafter: It is not concealed from you that the people of Islam had suffered from aggression, iniquity and injustice imposed on them by the Jewish-Christian alliance and th eir collaborators to the extent that the Muslims™ blood became th e cheapest and their wealth and assets looted by the hands of the enemies. Their blood was spilled in Pales tine and Iraq. The horrifying pictures of the massacre of Qana, in Lebanon are still fresh in our memory. Massacres t ook place in Tajikistan, Burma, Kashmir, Assam, Philippine, Fattani, Ugad in, Somalia, Eritrea, Chechnya and in Bosnia- Herzegovina. Massacring Muslims that sent shiver s in the body and shook the conscience. All of that happened and the world watched and heard, and not only did not respond to these atrocities, but also with a clear conspiracy between Americ a and its allies prevented the weaklings from acquiring arms to defend themselves by using th e United Nations as a cover. Muslims became aware that they were the main targets of the Jewish-Crusader alliance of aggression. The false propaganda regarding human rights have vanished under the tribulations and massacres that were committed against Muslims everywhere. This last aggression was the worst catastrophe that was inflicted upon the Moslems since the death of the Prophet. That is, the occupation of the land of the two holiest sites, Islam™s own

2 grounds, the cradle of Islam, source of the Prophe t™s mission, site of the Ka™bah was launched by the Christian army of the Americans and their allies. There is no power and no strength save in God. In light of these facts and the reality we live in, in light of this blessed and overwhelming awakening that swept the world, the Islamic world in particular , I meet with you today after a long absence imposed by the unjust Crusade under the leadership of America against the Islam scholars, fearing stirring up the Islamic Nation against its enemies as was guided by ancestoral scholars, like Ibn Tamimah and al-Iz Bin Abd-al -Salam, may Allah bless their souls. We do not justify anyone above God. They [alliance] mu rdered the Mujahid Sheikh/Abdallah Azzam and arrested the Mujahid Sheikh/Ahmad Yasin. In th e path of the prophet; praise and prayers be upon him, and Mujahid Sheikh/ Omar Abd-al-Rah man in America as well as many scholars, preachers and youth that were arrested in the land of the two Holiest sites upon the instructions of America. Most prominent were Sheikh/Salman al-Udah and Sheikh Safar al-Hawali. There is no power and no strength save by God. We were a ffected by some of that injustice by barring us from speaking with the Muslims, while being h unted in Pakistan, Sudan and Afghanistan; which caused our long absence. But by the grace of God there was a safe haven in Khurasan, under the protection of Hindukush Mountains. These moun tains where e the World™s most powerful military and apostates were crushed, and where the legend of the great forces dissipated in front the cries of the Mujahideen. God is Most Great. Today, from the same shelters in Afghanistan, we are working to lift off the injustice that was inflected upon the nation by the Jewish-Crusaders alliance, especially after their occupation of the Prophet™s land, praise and peace be upon him, and their desecration of land of the two holiest sites. We ask Allah to grant us victory. He is the defender and the almighty. Today we start talking, working and rememberi ng to search for ways to reform whatever happened to the Islamic world in general, land of th e two holiest sites in particular. We want to study all possible ways that can be established to restore the situation back to its origin and the rights to their owners, after what happened to the people from great misfortune and serious harm concerning their religion and worldly existence. People from all walks of life were stricken: civilians military and security personnel, officials, merchants, young and old, school and university students, thousands of unemployed university graduates, who make up great number in society.

3 (Document page 2) It also struck Industrial and agriculture groups, urbanites, noma ds and desert inhabitants. Everyone is complaining about everything. The situation in the land of the two holy places became like a gigantic volcano ready to erupt, so it can annihilate the infidelity and corruption no matter where the source comes from. Riyadh and K hubar explosions were only a warning to this roaring flood, which was caused by suffering, bitter suppression, subjugation, excessive injustice, degrading oppression and poverty. People are fully concerned about their every day livelihood, every one talks about the deterioration of the economy, inflation, high cost of living, ever-increasing debts, and prisons full of inmates. These employees are with limited income, talk about their debts of ten thousands and hundred thousands of Riyals. They complain that the value of the Riyal is greatly and continuously deteriorating against other majo r currencies. Even leading merchants and contractors talk about hundreds and thousands of million Riyals owed to them by the government. More than three hundred forty billions Riyals are owed by the government to the people, in addition to the daily-accumulated interest, let alone the foreign debt. People ask and wonder whether we are really the largest oil exporting country! They even feel and believe that this situation is punishment and curse put on them by Allah for their silence against the injustice, oppressive and illegitimate behavior and measures of the ruling regime. Most conspicuous is ignoring the divine Shari™ah law depriving people from their legi timate rights and allowing the Americans to occupy the land of the two holiest sites, and the unjust imprisonment of the devoted scholars and the successors of the prophe t. Scholars, preachers, merchants, economists and dignitaries became aware of this great mi sfortune; every group did what they could and moved fast to correct the situation. All agreed that the country is heading toward a great catastrophe, the extent of which is not known except by Allah. One senior merchant said [the king is leading the country to a disaster]. There is no power and no strength save in God. Numerous princes share with the public their feelings, privately expressing their concerns and objecting to the corruption, repression and intimidation taking place in the country. Rivalry among the influential prin ces over personal interest and gains had destroyed the country. Through its course of actions, the regime has ripped apart its legitimacy the most important being: 1- Suspension of Islamic laws, and replacing it with statuary laws and embarking upon bloody confrontation with devoted scholars and righteous youths. We do not justify anyone above God. 2- Failure of the regime to protect the c ountry, and allowing the enemy of Crusaders- American forces to occupy the land years pr esent the main reason for our disaster in every aspect, especially ec onomically. Because of the wasteful government spending, the imposed economic policies such as lim iting the production of oil and controlling its selling price, and the high cost of arm deals, th e people started wondering why does this regime exist? Every group did its utmost to move swiftly to av ert this deteriorating situation. They advised the government both privately and openly, in prose and in poetry, jointly and separately, they send letters and poems, reports after reports, reminders after reminders; they explored every way and enlist every influential person in their movement of reform and correction. They wrote with style

4 of passion, diplomacy and wisdom asking for co rrective measures and repentance from great wrong doings and corruption that had engulfed even the basic principles of the religion and the legitimate rights of the people. But unfortunately and to our deepest regret the regime refused to listen to the people accusing them of being ridiculous and silly. The matter got worse as previous wrong doings were followed by mischiefs of greater magnitudes. All of this took place in land of the two holiest sites!! Silence was no longer permissible nor connivance became unacceptable. When the transgression reached this magnitude; and exceeded the limits of atrocity to contradict the solemn Islam, a group of scholars and preachers became fed up with the deafening sounds of deception and blinded their eyes from viewing bribery and blocked their noses from smelling corruption. Rejection vows were revived and demands for preventing the situation from deteriorating became loud. Dozens of educated di gnitaries, merchants, and former officials joined in. They dispatched letters and memo s to the king calling for reform. In 1411H, and during the Gulf war, a letter with over 400 signatures was sent to the king demanding reform, lifting oppression and the implementation of corrective measures. The king humiliated the people and ignored the letters. The bad situa tion of the country became even worse. The counselors resubmitted letters and memos once again. One particular report was handed over to the king in Muharram 1413H, which tackled th e problem, pointed out the ailments and prescribed the remedy in an original, righteous a nd scientific style. It described the gaps and drawbacks in the philosophy of the regime and suggested the required course of action and remedy. The report described the intimidation a nd harassment suffered by the leaders of the society, the scholars, chiefs of tribes, me rchants, academic teachers and other eminent individuals. It also spelled out the situation of the law in the country and the arbitrary declaration of what is lawful and unlawful regardless of the Shari™ah as instituted by Allah.

5 (Document page 3) The report mentioned the state of the media and th e presse that became t ools for hiding the truth and spreading misinformation.. The me dia carried out the plan of the enemy of idolizing cult of certain people and spreading atrocity among the believers to repel the people away from their faith and religion. Almighty Allah said: {Those who love (to see) scandal published broadcast among believers, will have a grievous Penalty in this life and in the Hereafter: Allah knows, and ye know it} [Al Nur, verse 19]. The report also covered the Abuse and confiscation of human rights, as well as, the administrative situation that is ruled by incapable individuals and the widespread of corruption. The report went on to cover the financial and economical situ ation of the country and the frightening future in view of the enormous amount of debts and interest owed by the government, while imposing more custom duties, ta xes and usury on the nation. (It was said that: if a woman committed adultery and repented: A nd have been punished: Her repentance and forgiveness would be granted to such a toll holder if he repented as well) [Said by Ahmad]. That shows how grave the sin of those who deal w ith usury is. Some people still preach from the pulpits for the toll holder and usury, which is blasphemy. There is no power and no strength save by God. The report also discussed the miserable situatio n of the social services and infrastructure, especially the water service and supply, the basic requirement of life. It also pointed out the state of the ill trained, ill-prepared army and the impotence of its commander in chief, despite the incredible am ount of money that was spent on the army. As for the judiciary, the Shari™ah law was susp ended and statuary laws were used instead. As far as the foreign policy is concerned; the report exposed not only how this policy had disregarded the Islamic issues and ignored the Muslims, but also how help and support were provided to the enemy against the Muslims Œcases like Gaza and Jericho- and the communists in South Yemen are still fresh in the memory, plus others. According to scholars, it is known to every one that applying statuary laws and supporting the unbelievers against Muslims are considered contradi ctory to the teachings of Islam. God said: {If any do fail to judge by [the light of] what Allah Hath revealed, they are [no better than] unbelievers}. [Al Ma™idah: 44]. Almighty Allah also said {But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee judge in all di sputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against they decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction}. [Al Nisa™: 65]. Although the memorandum presented a ll that with leniency and friendliness, reminiscing of God, preaching for kindness, in a courteous and trut hful style, and desp ite the importance of consultation in Islam and its necessity for thos e who rule people to apply it, and despite the number and stature of the signato ries of this memorandum, all of that did not intercede with the plea. The contents were met with rejecti on and discouragement. The signatories and sympathizers were met with punishment and imprisonment.

6 It became clear that the preachers™ and reform ers™ desire and eagerness was to pursue peaceful means for the sake of the country™s unity and to prevent bloodshed of the people. So why does the regime block all means of peaceful reform a nd force people towards armed action? It became the only solution that wes left fo r people to lift the oppression and institute justice and truth. In whose interest do [Prince Sultan and Prince Naif] involve the country and its people in a internal war that would destroy us all? They ask for help and advise from people who started the domestic riots in their country. Mobilized the police to abort the reform movement. Segregate and plot against the people, with the help of these traitors. Th e main enemy of the region Œ the Jewish-American coalition – remained safe and secure while the people™s wealth was depleted. People could not tolerate the Minister of Interior™s [Prince Naif] adviser, because of his unjust and oppressive tactics, so he was discharged from his position, but [Prince Naif] welcomed him back to assist him with his offenses and aggression. He filled the prisons with the elite members of the nation, mothers cried for the false accusations, vilification and imprisonment of their children. Does the regime want to stir people agai nst each other, civilians and military, like what happened in some neighboring countr ies? There is no doubt that this is the policy of the ŒJewish American alliance- as they are th e beneficiaries of that. But by th e grace of God the majority of the civilian and military population are aware of th is vicious scheme. They would aspire to use this as a tool to instigate internal strife in order to implement the main enemy™s ŒAmerican Jewish alliance- policy through its authorized agent in Saudi Arabia. Therefore everyone agreed that [The shadow can not become straight if the rod is crooked]. Thereupon it is inevitable to concentrate on hitting the main enemy that led the country to spinning and maze modes for decades, after divi ding it to many and petty states. Whenever a reform movement emerged in the Islamic count ries, the ŒJewish Crusade allianceŒ would push their agents rulers in the regi on to deplete and abort this reform movement by using many means with what they see fit. Some times they abort their efforts by armed encounter, by specifying the time and place of battle, wh ere they nip it in the bud. Sometimes men from Ministry of Interior who have graduated from religious academies would derange and disperse the reformative demonstrat ions. Sometimes they would ask some righteous people to engage in verbal warfare with scholars and symbols of the reformative movement, so they can exhaust everyone™s energy and keep the in fidels in control the country. The discussions would continue, while monotheism of God

8 Muslims. 2- Attrition of economic and financial resources. 3- Destruction of the country™s infrastructure. 4- Disintegrating the society. 5- Destruction of the oil industries because of the presence of the American-Crusader military forces in the Islamic Gulf States thus threatening the largest oil reserves in the world.

PAGE – 9 ============
9 (Document page 5) The economies of the Gulf States and the land of the two holiest sites will be damaged and even a greater damage will be caused to the world economy. I would like to alert my brothers, the Mujahideen, the sons of the nation, to protect this wealth and not to include it in the battle, as it is a great Islamic wealth, and a large economic power essential for the; by Allah™s blessings and grace. We also warn the aggressors, the USA, against burning this Islamic wealth at the end of the war, to prevent it from falling in the hands of its legitimate owners, and to cau se economic damage to the competitors in Europe and the Far east, especially Japan, which is the major consumer of region™s oil. 6- Division of the land of the two holiest sites, and annexing of the northern part of it by Israel. Dividing the land of the two holiest sites is essential to the Jewish-Crusader alliance. The existence of such a large country with its huge resources under the leadership of the forthcoming Islamic State, by Allah™s Grace, represents a serious threat to the very existence of the Jewish state in Palestine. Due to the fact that the land of the two holiest sites represents a symbol of unity of the Islamic world because the existence of the Ka™bah. Likewise land of the two holiest sites represents essential economic power in the Islamic world because it has the worlds largest oil reserve. People of the land of the two holiest sites have ties with their ancestors™ way of life, which they consider idealistic and forms the bases for restoring the glory of the nation, and continuing to spread the word of God. Moreover, there is a wealth of fighting Mujahideen available in Yemen r eady to fight for God™s cause. 7- An internal war is a great mistake, no matter what the reasons are. The presence of the American occupation forces will control the outcome of the battle for the benefit of the International atheists. I address now my brothers of the security and military forces and the national guards may Allah preserve you an asset for Islam and the Muslims: O you protectors of unity and guardians of faith, O you descendants of the ancestors who carried the light of guidance and spread it all over the world. O you grandsons of S™ad Bin Abi Waqqas, al-Muthanna Bin Harithah al-Shibani, al-Qa™qa™ Bin Amr al-Tamimi and everyone who waged jihad with the Companions of the Prophet. You competed to join the army and the national guard forces with the intention to carry out Jihad for the sake of Allah firaising His exalted wordfl and to defend the faith of Islam and the land of the two holiest sites against the invaders and the

10 occupying forces. But the regime overturned the balance, inverted the concepts, subdued the people, and disobeyed the religion. The nation did not recapture the first of the two kiblahs [Jerusalem], the route of the Prophet, [Peace and Prayers be upon him], even after the promises that the rulers affirmed half a century ago to recapture it. That generation has gone, new generation came, promises have changed, (AlA qsa Mosque) was handed over to the Jews. The nation™s wounds still bleed there since that time. Despite all this, and all of a sudden, the Saudi regime afflicted more pain on the people by allo wing women of the Christian armies to defend them and allowed the crusad ers to occupy the country. The crusaders were permitted to be in the land of the two holiest sites. Œ Not surprisingly though, the King himself wore the cross-. The country was widely opened for the crusaders. The land was filled with American and allied military base s. The regime became unable to keep control without the help of these bases. You know more than anyone else about the size, intention and the danger of their presence in the area. The regime betrayed the country, and joined the infidels by assisting and helping them against the Muslim s. It is not concealed from you that it was violation of Islam. The King has violated the prophet™s command by allowing the crusaders to be in the Arab Peninsula. The Prophet said on his deathbed: (Expel the infidels from the Arabian Peninsula). He also said (If it should please God Almighty that I live, I will e xpel the Jews and the Christians from the Arabian Peninsula). It is out of date and no longer acc eptable to claim that the presence of the crusaders is a necessity and only a temporary measure to pr otect the land of the two holiest sites, especially when the civil and military infrastructures of Iraq were savagely destroyed showing the depth of the Jewish-Crusaders™ hatred of the Muslims and th eir children, and the reje ction of the idea of replacing the crusaders forces by an Islamic fo rce composed of the sons of other Muslim countries. Moreover the bases for their claim of defending the country were wiped out by the numerous speeches given by the leaders of the in fidels in America. William Perry, the Defense Secretary, gave the latest of th ese speeches to the American Army, after the explosion in Al- Khobar; saying that: fiThe presence of the American troops there was to protect the interests of Americafl. Sheikh Safar al-Hawali – may Allah hasten his release- wrote a book of seventy pages; where he presented evidence and proof that the Am erican presence in the Arabian Peninsula is a preplanned military occupation. This claim is another ploy; the regime want s to deceive the Muslims the same way the Palestinian Mujahideen were deceived causing th e loss of Al-Aqsa Mosque. That is when the Muslims in Palestine started their greatest Jihad against the British occupation in 1354H, corresponding to 1936. Britain could not resist nor withstand their Jihad. The British then realized that the only way to stop the armed Jihad in Pa lestine is through King Abd-al-Aziz, who could easily deceive the Mujahideen. King Abd-al-Aziz carried out his mission by sending his two sons who met with the Mujahideen leadership in Palestine, and conveyed the King™s guarantees of the British government™s promises that they will leave if they stopped the Jihad and that they will also comply with their demands. So the King was the cause of loosing Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. He b acked up the Christians against the Muslims, and instead of adopting the Al-Aqsa cause and supporting the Mujahideen to liberate it, he betrayed them. Today his son King Fahd tries to deceive th e Muslims as well, so they can lose what

PAGE – 11 ============
11 (Document page 6) is left of the sacred places. He lied to the scho lars, who gave [Fatwa] to allow the Americans to be there, as well as great numb er of scholars and Islamic world leaders in al-Rabitah convention in Mecca. After the Islamic world condemned th e presence of the Crusaders in the land of the two holiest sites, The King said that: fithe issue is simple, the American and their allied forces will leave in few monthsfl. Today it has been seven years since their arrival, and the regime is unable expel them out of the country. The regime did not confess its inability to do so and kept on lying to the people claiming that the Americans will leave, but no on e believed it because a believer will not be bitten twice by the same snake, and a fortunate person is the one who takes heeds to other peoples™ warnings. To make things worse, and instead of having the army, the national guards and the security forces confront the occupiers the regime forced them to be their protectors. There is no power and no strength save in God. We mention thes e few men from the army, police and security forces that are being humiliated and mistreated by the regime who pressure them to infringe upon the Muslim™s rights. (Prophetic traditions were quoted): [Anyone who follows and believes in me, have the right and blessings to particip ate in war] other quotes also mentioned. Today your brothers and sons from the two holiest sites started the jihad for the sake of God to expel the occupying enemy from the land of the two holiest sites. There is no doubt that you wish to carry on this task; to restore the glory for the country and to liberate its occupied sacred places. Nevertheless, it must be obvious to you that, due to the imbalance of power between our armed forces and the enemy forces a suitable mean s of fighting must be adopted, such as using fast moving forces operating in tota l secrecy. In other words to initia te guerilla warfare, were the sons of the nation, and not the military forces, take part in it. As you know, it is wise at this stage to exclude the armed forces from a traditional warfare with the Crusad er enemy forces, except for daring and intensive operations, which can be executed by some members of the armed forces, meaning, without the interference of re gular forces with its traditional formation. shedding the Muslims blood. The Mujahideen, your brothers and sons, request that you support them in every possible way by supplying them with the necessary information, mate rial and arms. Security forces are especially asked to cover up for the Mujahideen and to assist them as much as possible against the occupying enemy and to spread rumors, fear an d discouragement among members of the enemy forces. We warn you that the regime might plot against members of the armed forces, national guard and security men, and try to frame the Mu jahideen by spreading lies and create dissention among them. The regime is fully responsible for what ha s been happening to this country. However the occupying American enemy is the principal cause of this situation. Therefore efforts should be concentrated on destroying, fighting and killing the enemy until, by the Grace of Allah, it is completely defeated. This will happen, -by the Grace of Allah-, when you do your part and put an end to the occupation so that the word of God becomes superior and the word of the infidels becomes inferior. You will hit with an iron fist against the aggressors; you will reestablish the
