Osama vows ‘no US security without Palestine security’ in final tape

Washington, May 9: Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden warned in his final recorded audio tape that there would be no US security without Palestine security.

“America will not be able to dream of security until we live in security in Palestine. It is unfair that you live in peace while our brothers in Gaza live in insecurity,” said Osama while addressing US President Barack Obama.

“Accordingly, and with the will of God, our attacks will continue against you as long as your support for Israel continues,” he added.

The message was posted on Shamikh1.net, a conduit for Al-Qaeda communications, the Telegraph reports.

Osama said that he had tried to send a “message” to the US through Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to explode a bomb on a Detroit-bound US airliner in December 2009.

“If it were possible to send you messages by way of words, we would not have had to use planes to send them to you,” said Osama.

“So, the message we wanted to convey through the plane of our hero, the fighter Umar Farouk, may God be with him, confirms a previous message which had been sent to you by our heroes of September 11,” he added. (ANI)
