Osama bin Laden

Geburtstag: 10. März 1957
Todesdatum: 2. Mai 2011

Usāma ibn Muhammad ibn Awad ibn Lādin, allgemein bekannt als Osama bin Laden , war ein saudi-arabischer, seit 1994 staatenloser Terrorist. Er war der Gründer und Anführer der Gruppe al-Qaida und plante unter anderem die von ihr ausgeführten Terroranschläge vom 11. September 2001.

Bin Laden stammte aus einer wohlhabenden saudischen Unternehmerfamilie und unterstützte in den 1980er Jahren den Kampf der Mudschaheddin im Sowjetisch-Afghanischen Krieg mit Geld, Waffen, Ausbildungslagern und Bauprojekten.

1998, nach dem Zweiten Golfkrieg, erklärte er in einer Fatwa das Töten von Zivilisten und Soldaten der Vereinigten Staaten überall zur Pflicht jedes Muslims. Er wurde zur Identifikations- und Symbolfigur verschiedener islamistischer Terrorgruppen, die ihre Gewalttaten gegen die westliche Welt als Dschihad zur Selbstverteidigung des Islam rechtfertigen.

Seit den Terroranschlägen auf die Botschaften der Vereinigten Staaten in Daressalam und Nairobi 1998 gehörte er zu den meistgesuchten Zielpersonen des FBI und diese fahndeten verstärkt, aber bis 2010 erfolglos, nach ihm. In der Nacht zum 2. Mai 2011 erschossen US-Soldaten in der Operation Neptune Spear Bin Laden bei der von US-Präsident Barack Obama befohlenen Erstürmung seines Anwesens in Pakistan.

Zitate Osama bin Laden

„Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.“

—  Osama bin Laden

2000s, Letter to the American people (2002)
Kontext: Sixthly, we call upon you to end your support of the corrupt leaders in our countries. Do not interfere in our politics and method of education. Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.

„The events that affected my soul in a direct way started in 1982 when America permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon and the American Sixth Fleet helped them in that. This bombardment began and many were killed and injured and others were terrorised and displaced.
I couldn't forget those moving scenes, blood and severed limbs, women and children sprawled everywhere. Houses destroyed along with their occupants and high rises demolished over their residents, rockets raining down on our home without mercy. The situation was like a crocodile meeting a helpless child, powerless except for his screams. Does the crocodile understand a conversation that doesn't include a weapon? And the whole world saw and heard but it didn't respond. In those difficult moments many hard-to-describe ideas bubbled in my soul, but in the end they produced an intense feeling of rejection of tyranny, and gave birth to a strong resolve to punish the oppressors. And as I looked at those demolished towers in Lebanon, it entered my mind that we should punish the oppressor in kind and that we should destroy towers in America in order that they taste some of what we tasted and so that they be deterred from killing our women and children.
And that day, it was confirmed to me that oppression and the intentional killing of innocent women and children is a deliberate American policy. Destruction is freedom and democracy, while resistance is terrorism and intolerance.
This means the oppressing and embargoing to death of millions as Bush Sr did in Iraq in the greatest mass slaughter of children mankind has ever known, and it means the throwing of millions of pounds of bombs and explosives at millions of children - also in Iraq - as Bush Jr did, in order to remove an old agent and replace him with a new puppet to assist in the pilfering of Iraq's oil and other outrages.
So with these images and their like as their background, the events of September 11th came as a reply to those great wrongs, should a man be blamed for defending his sanctuary?“

„As for those who condemned these operations looked at the event [9/11] in isolation and failed to connect them to past events and did not look at the causes that lead to this result. So their point of view is narrow.“
