DUBAI: Osama bin Laden has vowed to continue fighting against Jewish stat and its allies and not to give up an inch of Palestinian land. He stated this in an audiotape marking Israel’s 60th anniversary celebrations on Friday. “We will continue, God permitting, the fight against the Israelis and their allies and will not give up a single inch of Palestine as long as there is one true Muslim on earth,” the al Qaeda leader said.
Bin Laden said the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was at the heart of the Muslim battle with the West and an inspiration to the 19 bombers who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks on U.S cities in 2001. He pointed out that Israel’s anniversary celebrations showed not only that the Jewish state was 60-years-old but also that it did not exist 60 years ago and was established on land violently seized from the Palestinians.-SANA
