Apparently Maureen Dowd in commenting on the latest "Bin Laden" tape claims that Bin Laden wants to "zionize" the war with Iraq. Not to disagree too much with Orin Judd
but I think that's the one accurate thing Dowd says in the entire article. It has been the goal of Saddam and his fellow travelers to bring Israel into the conflict, generally politically but in Saddam's case literally as well. It's clear that if it's just protecting Saddam the rest of the Arab world is kind of on board, but lack enthusiasam. But if Saddam can make supporting him also mean attacking the Zionists then he can expect a lot more active support. More over then one can make the specious claim that the Palestinian issue must be settled first. Assuming that it was a Calipharian who created this latest tape, it means that they too fear the coming war and its effects.
