But if we want to preserve our humanity, it nerve does. The Muslims may respond to the present crisis in two ways; either to follow the clear, unambiguous teachings and guidance from Qur’an and Sunnah to be successful in this and next world by attaining peace with dignity and honour or blindly follow the path leading to destruction by following the concocted irrational pseudo ideologies of extremists satisfying their ambitions and desires.

ASymbolic victory’
Qais Azimy, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Kabul, said Afghan officials described bin Laden’s killing as a “symbolic victory”, since he was no longer directly connected to the group’s field operations.
“This organisation (Al Qaeda) is more than Bin Laden, it may be symbolised by Bin Laden, but it definitely is more than Bin Laden”
Mark Kimmit, US military analyst, 
Mark Kimmit, a US military analyst, said bin Laden’s death “was not the end of terrorism, but an end of a chapter.”
“Capturing or killing bin Laden has more iconic value. It will have symbolic value, because it has been a number of years since bin Laden has exercised day to day control over operations. We still have an al-Qaeda threat out there and that will be there for a number of years.
“This organisation (al-Qaeda) is more than bin Laden, it may be symbolised by bin Laden, but it definitely is more than bin Laden,” he said.
It is, however, a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team. Obama’s predecessor, George Bush, had repeatedly vowed to bring to justice the mastermind of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, but never did before leaving office in early 2009.
He had been the subject of a search since he eluded US soldiers and Afghan militia forces in a large-scale assault on the Tora Bora mountains in 2001. The trail quickly went cold after he disappeared and many intelligence officials believed he had been hiding in Pakistan.
While in hiding, bin Laden had taunted the West and advocated his views in videotapes spirited from his hideaway.
Besides September 11, Washington has also linked bin Laden to a string of attacks – including the 1998 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and the 2000 bombing of the warship USS Cole in Yemen.

Osama was branded a terrorist by the US after his alleged involvement in the 9/11 attack, which resulted in the killing of a few thousand innocent Americans. So, the principle is that those who kill innocents are terrorists. Therefore, if Osama was a terrorist for his alleged involvement in the 9/11 episode, then following the same principle why the US, which is responsible for killing more than a million innocent Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan, is not termed a terrorist state?
If Osama, without a trial, could be condemned and killed, then why the killer states involved in the assassination of innocent Muslims in Indian Held Kashmir and Palestinians — India and Israel — are not declared terrorist states for killing innocents.
Having the body may help convince any doubters that bin Laden is really dead.

He was on dialysis, since 1990, The normal life expectancy of a dialysis patient is 3-5 years. 


He was reported to be dead many times previously as well........

Killing the alibi
Washington has less reason or justification to wage a war in Afghanistan now that bin Laden is no more.
"تحليل : قتل الغيبة\nواشنطن أقل سبب أو مبرر لشن حرب في أفغانستان الآن أن بن لادن ليس أكثر من ذلك."

The killing of Osama bin Laden is a major symbolic victory for the Obama administration, but is it a game changer for the US strategy in the "Greater Middle East"?


After 10 years of pursuing al-Qaeda's leader, responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks, the US has closed a chapter, but not the book, in its war on al-Qaeda and "international terrorism". 



Since the attacks on New York and Washington, "al-Qaeda central" which was being run from the Pakistani Afghan border, has mutated into a global network of affiliates. 

US "terrorism experts" have been split over the relevance of "al-Qaeda central" under the direct leadership of bin Laden and his lieutenants, in comparison to the global network of smaller cells and hardcore fighters who pledged allegiance to the leadership, or to put it bluntly, to the brand: "al-Qaeda".

Those who discount the importance of the 'disconnected and on-the-run' al-Qaeda leaders on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan underline the importance of the decentralisation of the group.

They refer to it as SPIN (segmented, polycentric, ideologically networked) group, where al-Qaeda fighters in various parts of the world have increasingly acted on their own without direct orders or logistical and financial support from "al-Qaeda central".

In that way, al-Qaeda was more of a global and post-modern creature or phenomenon than a religious one.

Jihad-Myth and Reality : 
Jihad-Myth and Reality. “Therefore, do not yield to the unbelievers, and make Jihad (strive) against them with this (Qur'an), a mighty Jihad (Jihad Kabira)” (Qur'an;25:52). “Permission to fight back (Qital) is hereby granted to the ...


What now?

While it has continued to invoke Islam and Jihad to rally support and to incite against non-Muslims, in reality its organisation and outreach, whether through the web or the use of modern technology, has been at the heart of its appeal as a global network.

Be that as it may, the physical death of bin Laden will no doubt lead to a serious psychological and inspirational setback for al-Qaeda fighters and their causes.

But for the Muslim world, bin Laden has already been made irrelevant by the Arab Spring that underlined the meaning of peoples power through peaceful means. 

It is also worth recalling that bin Laden's al-Qaeda and its affiliates have killed far more Arabs and Muslims than they did Westerners. 

And it was only after they failed to garner real support in the Arab world that they ran back to Afghanistan and began to target the West.

After long hijacking Arab and Muslim causes through its bloody attacks on Western targets, al-Qaeda has been discredited since 9/11 and its organisational capacity diminished by Western counter terror measures. 

Al-Qaeda's bin Laden has provided the Bush administration with the excuse to launch its disastrous and costly wars in the greater Middle East.

As expected, Washington's wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan continued to provide al-Qaeda with fresh recruits and support in the Muslim world and perpetuate a cycle of violence that ripped through the region for the last decade.

However, it has been the more implicit and less costly US and Western intelligence services that succeeded to a large degree in curtailing al-Qaeda activities, limiting the movement of its leaders that eventually led to his killing. 

So what will this mean for the US war in Afghanistan and Pakistan? Certainly Washington has less reason or justification to wage a war in Afghanistan now that bin Laden is no more.

It might also find more readiness among certain Taliban leaders in the absence of the thorniest issue of al-Qaeda, to make a deal that insures a power sharing arrangement in favour of the Taliban in return for curbing the use of Afghanistan by al-Qaeda to export "terrorism".

Bin Laden will continue to be a distraction for the short term, and especially if some of al-Qaeda groups muster revenge attacks. 

But in the long term, it is the historical transformations in the Arab and Muslim world that will eventually close the book on al-Qaeda.

Conclusion:
The Muslims oppose and condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations by any state, groups or individuals in unequivocal terms and are not ready to accept it as even remotely related to Islam in any manner. However, a negligible minority seems to give terrorism tacit approval due to ignorance and as a reaction to oppressive policies of imperialist powers [USA, West, Israel and India etc]. Their sympathisers under the influence of negative propaganda confuse the entire subject by resorting to misleading and perplexing discussions, misquoting the Holy Scripture to justify their horrendous acts. The   destruction and mass killing of innocent people in the name of Jihad (struggle against evil) is nothing but distortion, twisting and confusing the entire Islamic concept of Jihad, which make warfare permissible by legitimate authority in self defence or against the forces of oppression within laid down rules and morals, sparing innocent civilians, women and children. Suicide is not permissible under any condition, evil cannot become good, nor can oppression transform itself into virtue due to goodness of intention.

While condemning terrorism, the Muslims do not condone or approve the unfair, discriminatory, unpopular and unwise policies of global powers, nor see any justification for the wrong policies of any government, including that of some Muslim countries. Hence killing of peaceful unarmed civilians [Muslims or non Muslims] by Al Qaeda, Taliban groups and rogue powers like Israel, USA, West and India,  occupying the Muslim lands in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Kashmir and elsewhere is unpardonable most heinous crime against humanity which is to be explicitly condemned and rejected by all peace loving humans. While Mullah Omar leading resistance against foreign occupation forces in Afghanistan, condemned killing of innocent Muslims in Pakistan, Osama Bin Laden or his deputy Al Zahwari never condemned killing of innocent Muslims and non Muslims, rather they appear to condone and approve of it, hence such Khawarij/Takfiri beasts can not claim to be part of Muslim community in the light of Fatwa [Edict] by great scholars of Islam.
