“”The confrontation and conflict will go on because the conflict between right and falsehood will continue until Judgment Day… There can be no dialogue with the occupiers except with weapons… Islamic countries in the past century were not liberated from the Crusaders’ military occupation except through jihad in the cause of God… Jihad is the path, so seek it… I urge the Muslim youths to carry out jihad, particularly in Palestine and Iraq.”Bruce Lawrence, trans., Messages to the World: The Statements of Osama Bin Laden (London: Verso, 2005), 217-218, 231.
