Al-Qaida Chief Calls for Boycott of U.S. Goods

April 23, 2006 - Posted at 12:53 p.m. CST

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) _ A new audiotape said to be from Osama bin

Laden calls for a global Muslim boycott of American goods.

The call is similar to a recent action aimed at Danish products

following the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet

Muhammad. Referring to this controversy in the new tape, bin Laden

demands that the artists who drew those caricatures be handed over

to him for trial and punishment.

The message also says that the U-S and Europe have declared a

Christian war against Muslims. And it calls on bin Laden's

followers to go to Sudan to fight a proposed U-N force.

The tape was broadcast today on Al-Jazeera television. The

network has apparently had the tape for awhile. Substantial

transition and background comments have been added in between bin

Laden statements.

The authenticity of the tape hasn't been verified.
