'Al-Qaeda' offers gold for deaths (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3692079.stm)

Bin Laden has a $27m bounty on his head
Rewards of gold are said to be on offer for the assassinations of top US and UN officials, according to a message purportedly from Osama Bin Laden.
The statement said 10kg (22lb) of gold would be given to anyone killing the US Iraq administrator Paul Bremer or senior military officers.

The same - worth about $125,000 - was offered for UN chief Kofi Annan or his Iraq envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.

Why are they placing the UN at the same level as the US ?

The US has offered a $27m bounty for the capture or killing of Bin Laden.

But do Arabs or other Muslim know that and trust that the US will give it to them ?

Smaller rewards of 1kg of gold were offered for the deaths of ordinary Americans and Britons, and half that was pledged for the killings of citizens of Japan and Italy, who were called "slaves" of the UN Security Council.

more senseless rhetorical hatred...they (those putting out the bounty) hate the u.s., the u.n. because they think it supports the u.s. in all matters, and everyone else just because they have to have more people to hate or else they'd have all that extra hate around.
