Bin Laden attacks Hizbullah


One surprising aspect of the 56-minute diatribe posted yesterday by Osama Bin Laden on the Internet is that he criticized al-Qaeda’s fellow terrorist group, Hizbullah.

Bin Laden said that he is angry with Hizbullah for accepting the deployment of United Nations forces in south Lebanon after its war with Israel in 2006.

He said the U.N. force was there to “protect the Jews,” which to Bin Laden is obviously unacceptable.

But while al-Qaeda, which is a Sunni group, may have its theological differences with Hizbullah, a Shia group, Bin Laden can in fact rest assured that they have both made explicit that one of their goals is killing Jews and wiping out Israel.
