Bin Laden also spoke about Iraq, and urged his supporters to prepare for a "prolonged war" against "crusader robbers" in Sudan's Darfur region. Some 300,000 mostly black African villagers have been killed in Darfur in attacks by Arab

Bin Laden also urged Muslims to boycott the products of Western countries, including the United States, which backed Denmark following the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed.
