Transcript: Alleged Al Qaeda Tape Warns of New Attacks

Removing your world rulers is the logical choice for you, the people of the West. As for the alternative, it is the path which you are currently following, the path of Milosevic and Bush and Blair and their unending campaign of terror, the path of death and suffering and ultimately defeat. This is the choice you have been given, preserving what remains of the West's dignity and reputation by submitting to the legitimate demands of 1.3 billion Muslims and ending your centuries-long war against Islam and its people, or guaranteeing the ignoble end of your declining civilization by fighting Bush's crusade until you collapse from exhaustion.

There is no third option. It's either pragmatic surrender or a protracted, painful, war, ending in disgrace and failure because by no means shall we sit back and accept the status quo, by no means shall we lie down and permit you to occupy our land, steal our wealth, slaughter our brothers and sisters, humiliate and torture our prisoners, desecrate our Koran, belittle our beliefs ... and prop up infidels who rule us without right.

The dark days of inaction and complacency and non-resistance have passed. The call has gone out and the era of jihad and resistance has dawned in all its glory. As Sheik Osama has told you repeatedly, your security is dependent on our security. You can't have one without the other. If you ensure our security, you will have automatically insured you own. You security is not in the hands of Bush or Blair or Musharraf… No, it's in your hands. And a failure to act on your part will have unpleasant consequence.

Yesterday, London, and Madrid. Tomorrow, Los Angeles and Melbourne, Allah willing. And this time, don't count on us demonstrating restraint or compassion. We are Muslims. We love peace, but peace on our terms, peace laid down by Islam, not the so-called peace of occupiers and dictators. We love peace, but when the enemy violates that peace or prevents us from achieving it, then we love nothing better than the heat of battle, the echo of explosions and slitting the throats of the infidels.

When it comes to defending our religion, our freedom, and our brothers in faith, every one of us is Mohammed Atta.
