Raed Salah’s Islamic Movement Mourns Osama Bin Laden

There were several notable reactions by Islamists to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. One of them came from Raed Salah’s Islamic Movement.

The Islamic Movement in Israel, which is headed by Ra’ed Salah and is also identified ideologically with the Muslim Brotherhood, published a statement on May 2 condemning the action in which bin Laden was killed

Here is a translation of the statement.

America, the Mother of Woes

On Monday the Islamic Movement released a statement condemning the assassination operation against Sheikh Osama Bin Laden, which was carried out by the USA in Pakistan. The statement says:

We in the Islamic Movement condemn the assassination operation against the sheikh, the martyr Osama Bin Laden, if [reports are] true, at the hands of the American security arms.

The assassination, if true, proves collusion of mercenaries who have sold their consciences to cursed Satan.

Muslims’ and Arabs’ blood isn’t a lever for US election candidates, and the killing of Sheikh Bin Laden, if true, will not end Muslims’ hatred of America’s oppression, the mother of woes.

“Allah has control over his affairs but most people do not know” [apparently a citation of Qur’an 12:21, referring to the story of Joseph]

So Bin Laden is a sheikh, a martyr, and the people who found him and killed him are in league with Satan.

This is another reason why people should ask the Islamic Forum of Europe, Middle East Monitor, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the Palestinian Forum in Britain, and Labour MPs Richard Burden, Jeremy Corbyn, and Yasmin Qureshi just why they want to hear from Mr Salah.

It is also another reason why Mr Salah should be excluded from the United Kingdom.
