All people who worship Allah, not each other, are equal before Him. We are entrusted to spread this message and to extend that call to all the people.

Osama bin Laden

America has been hit by Allah at its most vulnerable point, destroying, thank God, its most prestigious buildings.

Osama bin Laden

America is a great power possessed of tremendous military might and a wide-ranging economy, but all this is built on an unstable foundation which can be targeted, with special attention to its obvious weak spots. If America is hit in one hundredth of these weak spots, God willing, it will stumble, wither away and relinquish world leadership.

Osama bin Laden

Any country that steps into the same trench as the Jews has only itself to blame.

Osama bin Laden

Any thief or criminal or robber who enters another country in order to steal should expect to be exposed to murder at any time. For the American forces to expect anything from me personally reflects a very narrow perception.

Osama bin Laden

As long as I am alive, there will be no rest for the enemies of Islam. I will continue my mission against them.

Osama bin Laden

Bush the father did well in placing his sons as governors and did not forget to pass on the expertise in fraud from the leaders of the region to Florida to use it in critical moments.

Osama bin Laden

Even as you enter the fourth year after the Sept. 11 attacks, Bush is still misleading and deluding you and hiding the real reason from you.

Osama bin Laden

Every country in the world has its own security system and its own security forces, its own police and its own army.

Osama bin Laden

Free men do not forfeit their security, contrary to Bush’s claim that we hate freedom. If so, then let him explain to us why we don’t strike Sweden, for example.

Osama bin Laden

I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don’t want to die humiliated or deceived.

Osama bin Laden

I support any Muslims, whether here or abroad.

Osama bin Laden

I’m fighting so I can die a martyr and go to heaven to meet God. Our fight now is against the Americans.

Osama bin Laden

Jihad will continue even if I am not around.

Osama bin Laden

Praise be Allah and prayers and peace upon Mohammed.

Osama bin Laden

The country of the Two Holy Places has in our religion a peculiarity of its own over the other Muslim countries. In our religion, it is not permissible for any non-Muslim to stay in our country. Therefore, even though American civilians are not targeted in our plan, they must leave.

Osama bin Laden

The hostility that America continues to express against the Muslim people has given rise to feelings of animosity on the part of Muslims against America and against the West in general.

Osama bin Laden

This resemblance became clear in the Bush the father’s visits to the region. He wound up being impressed by the royal and military regimes and envied them for staying decades in their positions and embezzling the nation’s money with no supervision.

Osama bin Laden

We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah.

Osama bin Laden

We declared jihad against the U.S. government because the U.S. government is unjust, criminal and tyrannical. It has committed acts that are extremely unjust, hideous and criminal, whether directly or through its support of the Israeli occupation.

Osama bin Laden

We did not find it difficult to deal with Bush and his administration, because it is similar to regimes in our countries – both types include many who are full of arrogance and greed.

Osama bin Laden

We do not mind establishing a long-term truce between us and you.

Osama bin Laden

We have repeatedly issued warnings, over a number of years. Following these warnings and these calls, anti-American explosions took place in a number of Islamic countries.

Osama bin Laden

We love death. The U.S. loves life. That is the difference between us two.

Osama bin Laden

We treat them in the same way. Those who kill our women and innocent, we kill their women and innocent, until they refrain.

Osama bin Laden

Your security is not in the hands of Kerry, Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands.

Osama bin Laden
