Excerpts from the purported Bin Laden tape broadcast Saturday on the Al-Jazeera television station:

———

"We reserve the right to respond at the appropriate time and place against all the countries participating in this unjust war (in Iraq), particularly Britain, Spain, Australia, Poland, Japan and Italy."

———

"I tell the American troops, now that daylight has come and all the lies have been exposed, your stay in Iraq is unjust and a huge folly. You are selling your world for someone else's. Your blood will be spilled so the White House gang gets richer and the arms dealers with them, as well as the large companies involved."

———

"I tell the American people we will continue fighting you and we will continue martyrdom operations inside and outside the United States until you stop your injustice and you end your foolishness."

———

"You young people of Islam everywhere, especially from neighboring states, and Yemen, you have to go wage jihad and show your muscles. Follow the right path and don't follow people who follow their whims ... who want to divert you from this blessed jihad."

———

"I call upon all Muslims, and on Iraqi people in particular. I tell them: Do not dare support the crusading American armies and those that ally with them. ... Anyone that aids them, or whatever comes of them, regardless of names or labels, is an infidel."

———

"America is bogged down in the quagmires of Tigris and the Euphrates (rivers). (America) is in real trouble ... and is today screaming at the top of its lungs and bowing before the whole world ... and calling for help from the lowest of people."

———

"Bush thought that Iraq and its oil is an easy treasure. There now he is in trouble."

———

"There are voices in Iraq, like there were in Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, and Yemen and others, that called for a peaceful democratic solution to deal with the infidel governments or with the crusade and Jewish invaders, instead of fighting for God. You must be warned against this wrong misleading path that violates God's law."

———

"This war is a new crusade against the Muslim world. It is a decisive one for the whole nation and has serious repercussions and bad effects on Islam and its people, only God knows its extent."

———

"You my brother fighters in Iraq ... I tell you: You are God's soldiers and the arrows of Islam, and the first line of defense for this (Muslim) nation today ... so don't (fail) the Muslims today."

———

Addressing the Iraqis: "Don't be afraid of the weapons of those Alouj (infidels) because God has weakened their malice. ... Their position has begun to weaken militarily and also economically, especially after the blessed day in New York (Sept. 11 attacks) with God's grace."
