Jimmy Carter's Book "Palestine" endorsed by Osama Bin Ladin
Aspiring writers and well know authors always look for that little extra endorsement that helps the sale of their books. Being on the New York Times list does not hurt either.
Here is an endorsement you don't want, especially in the United States of America. Osama Bin Laden the most hunted leader of Al Quaida has endorsed Jimmy Carter's book "Palestine". This announcement was made in a tape issued by Al Quaida.
The voice has not been confirmed as Bin Laden;s and the book was not mentioned by name.
It calls on Americans to “read what your former president, Carter, wrote regarding Israeli racism against our people in Palestine."
Not what you want on your book jacket in the United States.
While Oprah’s seal of approval on a book cover is sought after in America, Osama Bin Laden’s is, to put it mildly, not. On Monday, the authors of three books apparently recommended to American readers by the leader of Al Qaeda in his latest communique might be wondering how one goes about returning an unsolicited endorsement to a shadowy militant who has been in hiding for eight years.
While the voice on the tape does not mention this book by name, it calls on Americans to “read what your former president, Carter, wrote regarding Israeli racism against our people in Palestine.”
