The son of Osama bin Laden is threatening to get revenge against the United States for assassinating his father, according to an audio message posted online. Hamza bin Laden is vowing to carry on al Qaeda’s fight against the United States and its allies in the 21-minute speech entitled “We Are All Osama,” according to the SITE Intelligence Group. I would take this threat very, very seriously. This is vengeance for the Ummah, for Islam and for the Caliphate.
From the International Business Times:
The son of slain al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has threatened revenge against the United States for assassinating his father, according to an audio message posted online.
Hamza bin Laden promised to continue the global militant group’s fight against the United States and its allies in the 21-minute speech entitled “We Are All Osama,” according to the SITE Intelligence Group.
“We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression,” Hamza said.
“As for the revenge by the Islamic nation for Sheikh Osama, may Allah have mercy on him, it is not revenge for Osama the person but it is revenge for those who defended Islam.”
Bin Laden was taken out by US military commandos at his Pakistani hideout in 2011. He was then buried at sea, which I never did understand. Bin Laden should never have lasted as long as he did after slaughtering Americans on 9/11. Documents recovered from Bin Laden’s compound and published by the United States last year alleged that his aides tried to reunite the militant leader with Hamza, who had been held under house arrest in Iran. Hamza, now in his mid-twenties, was at his father’s side in Afghanistan before the 9/11 attacks and spent time with him in Pakistan after the US-led invasion pushed much of al Qaeda’s senior leadership there, according to the Brookings Institution. What they leave out is the quality time spent in Iran as well. Introduced by the organization’s new chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in an audio message last year, Hamza provides a younger voice for the group whose aging leaders have struggled to inspire militants around the world galvanized by ISIS. “Hamza provides a new face for al Qaeda, one that directly connects to the group’s founder. He is an articulate and dangerous enemy,” according to Bruce Riedel of Brookings. On that much, we agree.
