Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden , mais conhecido como Osama bin Laden ou simplesmente bin Laden foi um dos membros sauditas da próspera família bin Laden, além de líder e fundador da al-Qaeda, organização terrorista à qual são atribuídos vários atentados contra alvos civis e militares dos Estados Unidos e seus aliados, dentre os quais os ataques de 11 de setembro de 2001.
Filho de Muhammed bin Laden, imigrante iemenita pobre que se tornou o homem mais rico e poderoso da Arábia Saudita, depois do próprio rei, Osama bin Laden era o filho único de sua décima esposa, Hamida al-Attas; seus pais se divorciaram logo depois que ele nasceu . Osama bin Laden também era referido pelos seguintes nomes: Usama Bin Muhammad Bin Ladin, Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin, The Prince , The Emir , Abu Abdallah, Mujahid Shaykh, Hajj, The Director .
Desde 2001, bin Laden e sua organização tinham sido os maiores alvos da Guerra ao Terrorismo dos oficiais estadunidenses e esteve entre os dez foragidos mais procurados pelo FBI, encabeçando a lista. Acreditou-se que Bin Laden e seus companheiros da al-Qaeda estavam escondidos próximos à costa do Afeganistão e das áreas tribais do Paquistão. Em 1 de maio de 2011, dez anos desde os atentados do 11 de setembro, o Presidente Barack Obama anunciou pela televisão que Osama bin Laden havia sido morto durante uma operação militar estadunidense em Abbottabad. Seu corpo teria ficado sob a custódia dos Estados Unidos e, após passar por rituais tradicionais islâmicos, teria sido sepultado no mar. No entanto, em março de 2012, o WikiLeaks revelou e-mails da Stratfor Global Intelligence , segundo os quais o sepultamento de Bin Laden em alto-mar nunca aconteceu. Segundo divulgou o jornal espanhol Público, o corpo do ex-líder da Al Qaeda teria sido levado para os Estados Unidos em um avião da CIA.
Citações Osama bin Laden
„We are following with great concern the preparations of the crusaders to launch war on the former capital of Muslims... and to install a puppet government...
Fight these despots. I remind you that victory comes only from God.
The fighting should be in the name of God only, not in the name of national ideologies nor to seek victory for the ignorant governments that rule all Arab states, including Iraq.
„Praise be to Allah, who revealed the Book, controls the clouds, defeats factionalism, and says in His Book: 'But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war)'; and peace be upon our Prophet, Muhammad Bin-'Abdallah, who said: I have been sent with the sword between my hands to ensure that no one but Allah is worshipped, Allah who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my orders.
... All these crimes and sins committed by the Americans are a clear declaration of war on Allah, his messenger, and Muslims. And ulema have throughout Islamic history unanimously agreed that the jihad is an individual duty if the enemy destroys the Muslim countries. This was revealed by Imam Bin-Qadamah in 'Al- Mughni,' Imam al-Kisa'i in 'Al-Bada'i,' al-Qurtubi in his interpretation, and the shaykh of al-Islam in his books, where he said: 'As for the fighting to repulse [an enemy], it is aimed at defending sanctity and religion, and it is a duty as agreed [by the ulema]. Nothing is more sacred than belief except repulsing an enemy who is attacking religion and life.'
On that basis, and in compliance with Allah's order, we issue the following fatwa to all Muslims:
The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military -- is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim. This is in accordance with the words of Almighty Allah, 'and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,' and 'fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah.'
... We -- with Allah's help -- call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan's U. S. troops and the devil's supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.
... Almighty Allah also says: 'O ye who believe, what is the matter with you, that when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling so heavily to the earth! Do ye prefer the life of this world to the hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; but Him ye would not harm in the least. For Allah hath power over all things.'
Almighty Allah also says: 'So lose no heart, nor fall into despair. For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in faith.'
„What America is tasting now is something insignificant compared to what we have tasted for scores of years. Our nation (the Islamic world) has been tasting this humiliation and degradation for more than 80 years. Its sons are killed, its blood is shed, its sanctuaries are attacked and no one hears and no one heeds. Millions of innocent children are being killed as I speak. They are being killed in Iraq without committing any sins.... To America, I say only a few words to it and its people. I swear to God, who has elevated the skies without pillars, neither America nor the people who live in it will dream of security before we live it here in Palestine and not before all the infidel armies leave the land of Muhammad, peace be upon him.“
