About one year after the 9/11 attacks on the US, the leader of the Islamic terrorist organization of al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, published an open letter to America explaining why al Qaeda attacked the US on September 11, 2001. The British newspaper The Guardian published the full letter and put it up on its website.
Move forward 21 years and The Guardian has removed the letter from its website (it is still available in its entirety online at archives.org here). They say the reason they removed it is because it has gone viral over the last few days. It has gone viral primarily on TikTok, which is used largely by people in the age range of 18-34. The reason for it going viral is the Israel-Gaza war.
Some of the reasons bin Laden gave in his letter to America are irrational Islamic nonsense. However, there are some reasons listed that are not nonsense, the primary one being the blind support the US politicians from both parties give to Israel which helps the Jewish state of Israel to continue to expand its religious terrorism against the Palestinians through Israel's Hebrew Bible-based occupation of Palestinian land and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
Osama bin Laden did not see Israel's occupation as following the Hebrew Bible or the Torah. The reason he did not is because he suffered from chosen people envy. That is, he believed the Muslims were the "real" chosen people of the Torah and that the Torah was their "holy" book. He wrote,
"It is the Muslims who are the inheritors of Moses (peace be upon him) and the inheritors of the real Torah that has not been changed. Muslims believe in all of the Prophets, including Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all. If the followers of Moses have been promised a right to Palestine in the Torah, then the Muslims are the most worthy nation of this."
Why anyone would want to claim a connection to the genocidal war criminal Moses, is beyond reason. Moses frequently slandered The Supreme Intelligence/God by claiming God told him to command the Jews to commit genocide against Gentiles. One of the most ungodly and repulsive orders Moses gave to the Israelite army is when he ordered them, in regard to the Midianite people, to,
"...kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." (Numbers 31:17-18)
Thomas Paine wrote in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition, "Belief in a cruel god makes a cruel man." Paine is proven correct by the actions of Osma bin Laden and other Islamic leaders as well as by actions of Israeli PM Netanyahu and other Jewish leaders.
When people today read bin Laden's letter to America after watching Israel's intensive bombing of Gaza on the news, which has so far killed 11,029 Palestinians which includes 4,707 children and 3,155 women, it's not surprising that the content of his letter that addresses the US support for Israel's violent crimes against the Palestinians resonates with many people.
In his letter bin Laden makes an attempt to recruit people to Islam. Hopefully people realize that Islam is just as ungodly and harmful as Judaism, Christianity and Mormonism. This is because one thing they all have in common is depicting God as a violent dictator who demands the faithful to slaughter nonbelievers or people who do not belong to their tribe and who burns people in hell for eternity.
It is clear from the thousands of years of devastating religious violence inflicted on the world’s people and societies, the most recent of which is now unfolding in the “holy land”, that the time has come for the “revealed” religions to end. This must come about by peaceful reason-based means. The Deist Thomas Paine wrote in The Age of Reason that we need a revolution in religion based on our innate reason and Deism (belief in The Supreme Intelligence/God based on our reason and nature). Just imagine, if the “revealed” religions did not exist, the thousands of dead people in the Israel-Gaza war would still be alive.
