Jihadists Duty to Kill the Infidels

Wouldn’t it just be easier to believe Osama Bin Laden that he is involved in a jihad, a Muslim holy war against infidels that is non-believers?

See Osama bin Laden fatwa August 1996 "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places."

Most religions sincerely consider their religion the one true religion. The jihadists genuinely feel that way and, whether losers or great successes in life, feel it is their duty to convert or kill non-believers, the infidels.

Although the United States and westerners came to the aid of Muslims in protecting Saudi Arabia and evicting Saddam Hussein from Kuwait, came to the aid of Muslims in Bosnia, came to the aid of Muslims in Somalia, etc., Osama Bin Laden sees the world differently:
"The people of Islam awakened and realised that they are the main target for the aggression of the Zionist-Crusaders alliance. All false claims and propaganda about "Human Rights" were hammered down and exposed by the massacres that took place against the Muslims in every part of the world."

So Osama Bin Laden August 1996 fatwa includes:
- "The people are close to an all encompassing punishment from Allah if they see the oppressor and fail to restrain him."
- "We ask Allah to bestow us with victory."

Osama Bin Laden has grievances against the Saudi regime, but his grievances would be true in most all countries in the world;
(1) "Suspension of the Islamic Shari'ah law and exchanging it with man made civil law."

With most U.S. troops out of Saudi Arabia and oil prices now at the $60 per barrel level, Osama might be willing to drop this grievance:
(2) "The inability of the regime to protect the country, and allowing the enemy of the Ummah [nation of the believers]- the American crusader forces- to occupy the land for the longest of years. ..[Oil] production is restricted or expanded and prices are fixed to suit the American economy ignoring the economy of the country."

And lots of other comments in the 17 page August 1996 fatwa at

Note: to those who blame George W. Bush for stirring up trouble with the jihadists, August 1996 was more than four years before Bush took office as President.
