      November 1, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - Osama bin Laden warned in his October
      Surprise video that he will be closely monitoring the state-by-state
      election returns in tomorrow's presidential race � and will spare any state
      that votes against President Bush from being attacked, according to a new
      analysis of his statement.

      The respected Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and
      translates Arabic media and Internet sites, said initial translations of a
      key portion of bin Laden's video rant to the American people Friday night
      missed an ostentatious bid by the Saudi-born terror master to divide
      American voters and tilt the election towards Democratic challenger John

      MEMRI said radical Islamist commentators monitored over the Internet this
      past weekend also interpreted the key passage of bin Laden's diatribe to
      mean that any U.S. state that votes to elect Bush on Tuesday will be
      considered an "enemy" and any state that votes for Kerry has "chosen to make
      peace with us."

      The statement in question is when bin Laden said on the tape: "Your security
      is up to you, and any state that does not toy with our security
      automatically guarantees its own security."

      That sentence followed a lengthy passage in the video in which bin Laden
      launches personal attacks on the president.

      Yigal Carmon, president of MEMRI, said bin Laden used the Arabic term
      "ay-wilaya" to refer to a "state" in that sentence.

      That term "specifically refers to an American state, like Tennessee," Carmon
      said, adding that if bin Laden were referring to a "country" he would have
      used the Arabic word "dawla."

      MEMRI also translated an analysis of bin Laden's statement from the Islamist
      Web site al-Qal'a, well known for posting al-Qaeda messages, which agreed
      that bin Laden's use of the word "ay-wilaya" was meant as a "warning to
      every U.S state separately."

      "It means that any U.S. state that will choose to vote for the white thug
      Bush as president, it means that it chose to fight us and we will consider
      it an enemy to us, and any state that will vote against Bush, it means that
      it chose to make peace with us and we will not characterize it as an enemy,"
      the Web site said, according to MEMRI's translation.
