Bin Laden Lashes Out at Arab Leaders

[AP] Omar Sinan - Osama bin Laden released a new message on Sunday denouncing Arab leaders for sacrificing the Palestinians and saying the head of the Shiite militant group Hizbullah did not really have the strength to take on Israel. He also attacked Nasrallah for allowing the deployment of UN peacekeepers in southern Lebanon "to protect the Jews." In his second audio message in three days focusing on the Palestinians, the al-Qaeda leader said the only way to liberate Palestine is to fight the Arab regimes that are protecting Israel, and he called on Muslim militants in Egypt to help break the blockade of Gaza. He said Arab leaders have stopped taking their instructions from Islam and started taking them from the U.S. "They have decided that peace with the Zionists is their strategic option, so damn their decision." Bin Laden also said Muslims should ignore the Islamic prohibition against raising arms against fellow Muslims.
