Damn-it Mohammed; Bin Laden done-it
By Sinclere Lee
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (BNW) -- While Osama bin Laden has denied blowing up the twin towers in New York, the whole world is pointing at him as the man behind this dirty deed. Even his family is pissed at him for giving them a bad name.
The family of Osama bin Laden denounced the Saudi dissident on Saturday and offered their condolences to victims of the terror attacks in the United States.
In a telephone interview from the Red Sea port city of Jiddah, the head of the wealthy bin Laden family, Sheik Abdullah Awad Aboud bin Laden, expressed deep sorrow over Tuesday's attacks.
"The family has previously announced its position (to distance itself) from Osama and condemned his acts.
"All the family members condemn all violent and terrorist acts, even if Osama is behind them," said the sheik, who is bin Laden's uncle.
All that is well and good coming from the family against what Osama has done, but why? Why is he so mad at the U.S.A. that its a hope to die situation? and he is hoping Americans die. I have never seen someone so mad at somebody.
Why, he couldn't be as mad at this country as Native American Blacks, who have suffered more than he could ever imagine. So why is he trying to murder all of us anyway? Unfortunately, he has taken Americas anger against him and turned it into terror in the hearts of the average American, but he doesn't scare me!
Bin Laden and his al-Qaeda organization have been named by the United States as key suspects in the coordinated airborne attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.
U.S. authorities also suspect bin Laden of masterminding the August 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed 231 people, including 12 Americans.
Statement of regret
Additionally, he is believed to have played a role in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the 1996 bombing of U.S. military housing in Saudi Arabia and last year's attack on the USS Cole in Yemen.
The bin Laden family issued a statement in 1994 expressing its "regret, denunciation and condemnation of all acts that Osama bin Laden may have committed, which we do not condone and we reject."
Bin Laden, who reportedly inherited $300 million from his family's construction business, has lived a nomadic existence for several years.
He was deported from several Islamic countries before finding a haven in Afghanistan, which has rejected U.S. demands for his extradition.
A fundamentalist Muslim, bin Laden is known to run training camps for Islamic fighters in eastern Afghanistan, and he is thought to have many followers in many countries.
