The September 11 terror attacks in the US were carried out as revenge for treatment of the Palestinians and actions in Lebanon, al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden said in excerpts of a new audiotape aired Thursday on Al-Jazeera television. He also called on the Europeans to stop helping the United States in the war in Afghanistan, saying America is "ebbing." "The American tide is ebbing, so it is best for you to press your leaders to change their policies," bin Laden said, addressing Europeans and referring to their countries' military contributions in Afghanistan. Al-Jazeera aired two brief excerpts of a few seconds each of the audiotape, which al-Qaida had announced several days ago that it would release soon. It was the fourth message by the al-Qaida leader this year.
