According to newser.com, Al-Qaeda has said that in the United States “happiness will turn to sadness.”
Newser.com confirms that the message which was dated as May 3, 2011, was signed by the “general leadership of al-Qaeda,”
The Associated Press says the statement continues with “We stress that the blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is precious to us and to all Muslims and will not go in vain.”
Osama bin Laden had died at his compound in Abbottabad, using a woman as a shield. (See that article here: Osama bin Laden dead, body buried, woman used as…)
Al-Qaeda has promised to pursue Americans. “We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents,” says a statement given to the Associated Press.
Al-Qaeda reports that bin Laden left an audio message before he died and they have said they will reveal what that message was “soon.”
It’s likely a new leader will be named and the thought is that it will be Ayman al-Zawahri.
The statement has also asked for the people of Pakistan to fight against their government.
The statement went on to warn that bin Laden’s body should be handed over to the bin Laden family immediately, and it stated that “any harm (to the body) will open more doors of evil, and there will be no one to blame but yourselves.”
“Perhaps they don’t know the body was buried at sea.” says on San Francisco resident who wanted to remain anonymous.
