Osāma bin Muhammad bin ʿAwaḍ bin Lāden, più noto come Osāma bin Lāden o Bin Lāden , è stato un terrorista saudita, fondamentalista islamico sunnita, fondatore e leader di al-Qāʿida, la più nota organizzazione terroristica internazionale, attiva a partire dalla fine del XX secolo, di stampo jihadista, responsabile degli attentati dell'11 settembre contro gli Stati Uniti d'America e numerosi altri attacchi con "vittime di massa" contro obiettivi civili e militari.

Nato nella famiglia bin Laden di etnia Kindita Yemenita dal miliardario Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden in Arabia Saudita, vi studiò all'università sino al 1979, anno in cui si unì alle forze dei mujaheddin in Pakistan contro i sovietici in Afghanistan. Aiutò finanziariamente i mujaheddin convogliando loro armi, denaro e combattenti dal mondo arabo in Afghanistan, guadagnandosi anche la popolarità fra molti arabi. Nel 1988 fondò al-Qa'ida. Esiliato dall'Arabia Saudita nel 1992, spostò la sua base in Sudan, finché la pressione statunitense lo costrinse ad allontanarsene nel 1996. Stabilì una nuova base in Afghanistan e dichiarò guerra contro gli Stati Uniti, dando inizio a una serie di attentati e attacchi simili.

Bin Laden fu schedato dall'American Federal Bureau of Investigation nella Ten Most Wanted Fugitives e nell'elenco dei Most Wanted Terrorists per il suo coinvolgimento agli attentati alle ambasciate statunitensi del 1998. Dal 2001 al 2011, Bin Laden è stato un importante obiettivo della guerra al terrorismo, con una taglia di 25 milioni di dollari decisa dal Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Dopo essere stato inserito dall'FBI nella lista dei terroristi più ricercati , Bin Laden rimase in latitanza durante tre amministrazioni presidenziali statunitensi. La notte del 1º maggio 2011 Bin Laden venne ucciso in un conflitto a fuoco all'interno di un complesso residenziale ad Abbottabad, in Pakistan, da componenti del DEVGRU degli Stati Uniti e da agenti CIA nel corso di un'operazione segreta ordinata dal presidente degli Stati Uniti Barack Obama. Poco dopo la sua morte, il corpo di Bin Laden fu sepolto in mare. Al-Qāʿida confermò la sua morte il 6 maggio seguente, promettendo vendetta.

Frasi Osama bin Laden

„Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.“

—  Osama bin Laden
Context: Sixthly, we call upon you to end your support of the corrupt leaders in our countries. Do not interfere in our politics and method of education. Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.

„The events that affected my soul in a direct way started in 1982 when America permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon and the American Sixth Fleet helped them in that. This bombardment began and many were killed and injured and others were terrorised and displaced.
I couldn't forget those moving scenes, blood and severed limbs, women and children sprawled everywhere. Houses destroyed along with their occupants and high rises demolished over their residents, rockets raining down on our home without mercy. The situation was like a crocodile meeting a helpless child, powerless except for his screams. Does the crocodile understand a conversation that doesn't include a weapon? And the whole world saw and heard but it didn't respond. In those difficult moments many hard-to-describe ideas bubbled in my soul, but in the end they produced an intense feeling of rejection of tyranny, and gave birth to a strong resolve to punish the oppressors. And as I looked at those demolished towers in Lebanon, it entered my mind that we should punish the oppressor in kind and that we should destroy towers in America in order that they taste some of what we tasted and so that they be deterred from killing our women and children.
And that day, it was confirmed to me that oppression and the intentional killing of innocent women and children is a deliberate American policy. Destruction is freedom and democracy, while resistance is terrorism and intolerance.
This means the oppressing and embargoing to death of millions as Bush Sr did in Iraq in the greatest mass slaughter of children mankind has ever known, and it means the throwing of millions of pounds of bombs and explosives at millions of children - also in Iraq - as Bush Jr did, in order to remove an old agent and replace him with a new puppet to assist in the pilfering of Iraq's oil and other outrages.
So with these images and their like as their background, the events of September 11th came as a reply to those great wrongs, should a man be blamed for defending his sanctuary?“

Full transcript of bin Ladin's speech http://www.aljazeera.com/archive/2004/11/200849163336457223.html Aljazeera, (01 Nov 2004)

„The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam. The religion of the Unification of God; of freedom from associating partners with Him, and rejection of this; of complete love of Him, the Exalted; of complete submission to His Laws; and of the discarding of all the opinions, orders, theories and religions which contradict with the religion He sent down to His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Islam is the religion of all the prophets, and makes no distinction between them - peace be upon them all. It is to this religion that we call you; the seal of all the previous religions. It is the religion of Unification of God, sincerity, the best of manners, righteousness, mercy, honour, purity, and piety. It is the religion of showing kindness to others, establishing justice between them, granting them their rights, and defending the oppressed and the persecuted. It is the religion of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil with the hand, tongue and heart. It is the religion of Jihad in the way of Allah so that Allah's Word and religion reign Supreme. And it is the religion of unity and agreement on the obedience to Allah, and total equality between all people, without regarding their colour, sex, or language. It is the religion whose book - the Quran - will remained preserved and unchanged, after the other Divine books and messages have been changed. The Quran is the miracle until the Day of Judgment. Allah has challenged anyone to bring a book like the Quran or even ten verses like it.“
