Bin Laden: Al-Qaida will continue holy war until liberation of Palestine

Al-Qaida will continue its holy war against Israel and its allies until it liberates Palestine, the terrorist organization's leader Osama bin Laden said in a new message Friday. The message came as US President George W. Bush was wrapping up his visit to Israel to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Bin Laden said the fight for the Palestinian cause is the most important factor driving al-Qaida's war with the West and fueled the September 11 attacks. The authenticity of the close to 10 minute message could not be verified, but it was posted on a Web site commonly used by al-Qaida.
