  • I am not a soldier, but a preacher and teacher and could offer myself as a religious scholar and orator and I am willing to accept a position as that for the Al Qaeda organization.
  • We thank Almighty God, who said in his holy book: Ye who believe, take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is of them.
  • The Islamic nation has been groaning in pain for more than 80 years under the yoke of the joint Jewish-Crusader aggression. Palestine is living under the yoke of the Jewish occupation and its people groan from this repression and persecution while no-one lifts a finger. The Arabian Peninsula is being defiled by the feet of those who came to occupy these lands, usurp these holy places, and plunder these resources.
  • US interests are spread throughout the world. So, every Muslim should carry out his real role to champion his Islamic nation and religion. Carrying out terrorism against the oppressors is one of the tenets of our religion and Shari'ah.
  • The actions by these young men who destroyed the United States and launched the storm of planes against it have done a good deed.
  • Let the United States know that with God's permission, the battle will continue to be waged on its territory until it leaves our lands, stops its support for the Jews, and lifts the unjust embargo on the Iraqi people who have lost more than one million children.
  • The Americans should know that the storm of plane attacks will not abate, with God's permission. There are thousands of the Islamic nation's youths who are eager to die just as the Americans are eager to live.
  • I address Muslim youths, men, and women and urge them to shoulder their responsibility. They should know that the land of Afghanistan and the mujahidin there are really facing an all-out Crusader war which is aimed at eliminating this group which believes in God and fights on the basis of a creed and religion.


  • We have not reached parity with them yet. We have the right to kill four million Americans - two million of them children - and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands. Furthermore, it is our right to fight them with chemical and biological weapons. America is kept at bay by blood alone...


  • I was impressed with USAMA BIN LADEN's personality because he was very humble and spiritual. There is a crisis in the Islamic world today and Muslims are looking for leadership and they saw that in USAMA BIN LADEN.
  • Many of today's Muslim youth are running out to participate in jihad without any awareness of the religious, political, or historical context for jihad. They are not following the true idea/path of jihad. I am against Muslims fighting other Muslims and the killing of innocent Muslims and non-Muslims.
  • It was common knowledge among the Arabs that they should go to Kandahar if they wanted to attend training at the training camps or join the jihad movement in Afghanistan.
  • In Islam, it is an obligation to prepare yourself for defense and to train. This is no different than any nation having its young people train to defend the nation.
