Az amerikaiak sohasem folytattak harcot az iszlám ellen. Oszama bin Laden nem muzulmán vezér volt, hanem tömeggyilkos, aki valójában sok muzulmánt mészároltatott le még a saját országában is.
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT ON OSAMA BIN LADEN
(…) his death does not mark the end of our effort. There’s no doubt that al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must –- and we will — remain vigilant at home and abroad.
As we do, we must also reaffirm that the United States is not –- and never will be -– at war with Islam. I’ve made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims. Indeed, al Qaeda has slaughtered scores of Muslims in many countries, including our own. So his demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity. Remarks→
