Osama bin Laden’s son threatens revenge on the United States: We are all Osama


 

 

The son of assassinated al Qaeda ringleader Osama bin Laden released a video message Saturday entitled, We are all Osama.

In the 21-minute speech, Hamza bin Laden promises revenge on the United States for all those who defended Islam, though he also mentions his father’s death.

We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad, he said, in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression.

Osama bin Laden in 1998 Hamza is in his mid-20s and is considered a new face for an aging terrorist organization overshadowed by the Islamic State.

His whereabouts are unknown, but documents recovered from his father’s compound suggest Osama bin Laden’s aides were attempting to reconnect him with Hamza when he was killed in a 2011 raid by the United States.
