Bin Laden decries Gaza offensive

March 15, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has called Israel's offensive on Gaza a "holocaust" and accused Arab leaders of not doing enough to stop the fighting, in his latest audio recording aired on Al Jazeera.

Bin Laden accused some Arab countries of "collaborating" with Israel on the offensive in December-January that killed about 1,300 Palestinians. He did not name any specific Arab countries in the brief audio played on Al Jazeera.

The Arabic satellite channel did not say how it obtained the recording, and the authenticity of the tape could not be verified.
