Al Qaeda released a statement on jihadist forums confirming the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant messages.
The statement was issued by the al Qaeda organization - General Command on Tuesday May 3, 2011. Read in Arabic here (PDF) or the translation below:
Al-Qaeda statement calls the day " a historic day of the days of the great Islamic umma (nation) and in a noble stand of one of its great men and heroes across its blessed age and on the path taken by the will of all the mighty predecessors and those who will follow them, the Sheikh, the Mujahid & the Commander, the pious migrant fighter, Abu Abdullah Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden, may God have mercy on him was killed in a place where truth shines and where sincerity for good deeds and the call for truthfulness exist. Bin Laden was killed so he can follow the mighty caravan of the umma (the nation) with the great leaders, the loyal soldiers, and the honest knights who refused to abandon their faith for the mundane lives and to hand over the command to those who will be humiliate them and be humiliated and that's why they confronted the weaponry with weaponry, force with force and accepted to challenge the arrogant masses that came out to fight with their killing machines, equipments, aircrafts and forces boastfully so they can be seen as men, and still this didn’t weaken their resolve and didn’t drain their strength, but instead he stood up for them face to face, a mighty mountain, a proud mountain and he was still in the midst of the battle that many got used to and his eyes were used to its sceneries but after that, he was yet to be excused and delivered his message and then he was shot bullets of betrayal and blasphemy delivering his soul to its maker while repeating: 'Who sacrifice the blessed soul for his Lord to fight off the falsehood CANNOT ever be blamed'."
"Congratulations to the Islamic Nation on the martyrdom of their devoted son Osama,
Even when the Americans managed to kill Osama, they managed to do ONLY that by disgrace and betrayal. Men and heroes only should be confronted in the battlefields but at the end, that’s God’s fate. Still we ask, will the Americans be able thru their media outlets, their agents, their instruments, soldiers, intelligence services and their might be able to kill what Sheikh Osama lived for and was killed for? How far! How impossible! Sheikh Osama didn’t build an organization that will vanish with his death or fades away with his departure.
In this context, we in al Qaeda Jihad organization promise God Almighty and we ask Him for help, support and steadfastness to continue on the path of jihad that our leaders, led by Sheikh Osama chose, and that we will not be reluctant, and will not deviate from that honorable path until God be the final judge between us and our enemy.
We also stress that the blood of the mujahid sheikh Osama bin Laden, may God have mercy on him is VERY dear to us and more precious to us and to every Muslim from being shed in vain and this blood (OBL’s blood) will be a curse that will chase the Americans and their agents, a curse that will pursue them inside and outside their country, and soon – with God's help – we pray that their happiness turns into sorrow and may their bloods mix with their tears and let Sheikh Osama’s resonate again that “America will neither enjoy nor live in security until our people in Palestine live it and enjoy it. The soldiers of Islam in groups and as individuals will continue to plan and plot without any fatigue, boredom, despair, surrender or indifference until you receive from them a cunning misfortune that will gray the hair of the child even before he gets old.
We call upon our Muslim people in Pakistan where our dear Sheikh Osama was killed on their soil to rise up and revolt so they can cleanse this disgrace that was brought upon them by a handful of traitors and thieves who have sold everything to the enemies of the Muslim nation, and disregarded the feelings of this great Muajhid (Pakistani) people and let them rise up and start a massive public uprising to cleanse their country (Pakistan) from the filth of the Americans who have wreaked havoc in the land”.
Al-Qaeda chimes in to OBL's body controversy and tells its supporters that OBL had one more message for them.
"The sheikh (OBL) didn’t leave this world before taking part in sharing the joy with his Muslim Umma (nation) regarding its revolutions when the nation has risen in the face of injustice and the tyrants and may God have mercy on him, the sheikh recorded an audio message one week before his killing that we will release soon, God willing and his audio message included a congratulation greeting, advices and a guidance. He ended his audio message with the following verses:
Saying the righteousness to the tyrants is the splendor & the gospel.
This is the path leading to the mundane life, this is the path leading to the hereafter.
You can die a slave if you wish or die a free man, this is your choice.
Moreover, we warn the Americans of any injustice to be made to the corpse of Sheikh Osama, God's mercy be upon him or that he will be mistreated in any despicable manner and this warning includes the mistreatment of any member of the sheikh's honorable family whether they are dead or alive and that the bodies must be handed over to the families because any inappropriate treatment will open the doors of double evil and you will only be blaming yourselves for your own deeds. We call upon all Muslims to do their duty in enforcing this right.”
Im confused in a ;paragraph above, Al-Queda states " may god have mercy on him " meaning osama .. they beleive there is a god ? i thought their god was Allagh ??
OSAMA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF OVER 3,000 AMERICANS ON 9/11 AND COUNTLESS OTHERS
THIS WAS AN EVIL MAN, A COWARD WHO NEVER LIKED TO GET HIS HANDS DIRTY INSTEAD HE CONVINCE
PEOPLE TO KILL THEMSELVES AND KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE WITH THEM
SUFFERING ONLY BRINGS SUFFERING THIS IS THE ONLY THING THIS MAN DID
HOW CAN ANYONE CALL HIM A HERO, HE IS A DISGRACE AS A MAN HIDING FOR RUNNING AND HIDING BEHIND A WOMEN
I DO HOPE OUR TROOPS DEFEAT AL-QUADA TO THE POINT THAT THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF THEM
HOW CAN THEY EVEN SPEAK OF GOD AND THAT THEY ARE RIGHTEOUS HOW EVIL ARE THESE PEOPLE
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Who wants my left elbow?
Media will beat this story like a hot blonde during spring break... till the end of time
givve someone a job bill you rain paper
All you say is jihad but you are all coward just good on talking jihad – those of you who brainwash kids to be a suicide bomber should be the first one to blow themselves up to go to heaven. WAKE UP MUSLIMS – IN YOUR RELIGION THE STRONG MIND CONTROLS THE MAJORITY OF STUPID BRAINS.
For god sakes stop the lies.
OBL died Dec 16, 2001.
He had chronic kidney disease and marfans syndrome.
These Al Qaeda statements are fake.
Think about it!!
. . . it's all lies
OBL died December 16, 2001
He had chronic kidney failure and Marfans syndrome.
Steve R. Pieczenik, a top US government insider who has held numerous different influential positions under five different Presidents and still works with the Defense Department has revealed that Osama Bin Laden died in 2001.
these are the reasons for this fake story:
1) president Obama is running for his second term, the campaign starts this summer here in the U.S. and he was hoping this story adds to his credibility
2) because they are saying that OBL was found in Pakistan it gives the U.S a reason to now come and try to attack and take over regions of Pakistan ( bad news for pakistanis).
The U.S. Needs access to a port like Karachi to bring back the oil they steal from the caspain sea
3) this fake story is an attempt to gain support for the war on terror and the 1.88 trillion dollars the U.S has spent in Afghanistan and iraq
No human being with chronic kidney disease and marfans syndrome can survive for ten years. Medically impossible. Especially in a cave or compound.
The videos released after 2001 were all fake designed to generate fear and gain support for the bogus war on terror.
The real reason for going to Afghanistan and Iraq was to steal oil and conquer new territory in the middle east and the west Asian subcontinent.
the entire U.S media is controlled by the U.S. government.
They tell the media what to say.
Every newspaper, television news channel, radio station and magazine is run by one of six organizations.
These six organizations control how the public think.
Al-Qaeda does not release statements.
Think about it, they spend 1.88 trillion dollars on trying to catch Al-Qaeda, but were not able to?
They can't catch them, but they can receive emails, and letters and death threats from them?
But they can't trace the letters or emails? Despite spending 1.88 trillion on national defense and security?
It is ALL nonsense.
These are fake stories designed to keep the public in fear and to justify their conquering of the oil world.
There is no real war in terror, or threat from al-qaeda, and there was never any proof that OBL was behind 9/11.
OBL died in December of 2001 from complications of chronic kidney disease and Marfans syndrome.
In 2002: This was when Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf told America's news show CNN: 'I think now, frankly, he is dead for the reason he is a kidney patient. The images of him show he is extremely weak.'
I've been surfing on-line more than three hours today, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It's pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net will be much more helpful than ever before.
