Osama Bin Laden
Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden lived from 1957 until his death in 2011. He was the founder of Al Qaeda, the jihadist organization responsible for the attacks on the United States and numerous other mass casualty attacks against civilian and military targets. For many years he was public enemy number one, and the most wanted man in the world. He was a member of the wealthy Saudi bin Laden family, and an ethnic Yemeni Kindite. He was a very tall man who stood about 6’ 6”, and weighed approximately 160 pounds. He had an olive colored skin complexion, with brown hair and brown eyes, and for the most part always grew a long untrimmed beard. Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden also known as Osama bin Laden, and Usama bin Laden was born March 10, 1957 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to his father Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, and his father’s tenth wife Syrian born Alia Ghanem. Osama was born into a very wealthy family, and was his father’s seventh of 50 children. His father was a billionaire construction businessman with close ties to the Saudi royal family. Osama was the only child born from his father’s marriage to Alia Ghanem. Shortly after his birth his parents divorced and Osama went to live with his mother. Not long after his parent’s separation, his mother remarried Muhammad al-Attas, a friend of Mohammed bin Laden, who she met while he was employed at the bin Laden construction company. Osama’s mother and stepfather had three other children together, and Osama spent most of his childhood living with his step-siblings. His biological father would go on to marry two more times, until his death in a charter plane crash in September 1967. Osama was ten years old when his father died, and at that time he inherited close to 30 million dollars. Osama bin Laden’s early education was received while attending Al Thagher Model School, at the time it was the most prestigious school in Jedda. At the age of 14, Osama was recognized as an...
...World Trade Centers. Fingers were quickly pointed towards the al-Qaeda group, while people started hypothesizing different causes or groups behind the attacks. Many hypotheses included the LIHOP and MIHOP, as well as the Illuminati. Following this, many film adaptations and documentaries were made, further investigating the case, or looking at the attacks from different points of views and how it affected different individuals. Such examples include Twin Towers, My Name is Khan, and New York.
Throughout this investigation, I will study the concepts and 'truths' of the twin tower bombings. There are many ideas as to what may have brought on the 9/11 attacks, including numerical theories and conspiracies, documentaries, and videos from OsamaBinLaden; I wish to further look into the ideas of the mass population.
Many have heard about the Illuminati conspiracy. This is known world-wide and believed to be the root cause of many inflictions upon society. It has been studied though many lenses, including the music industry, political industry, and film industry. To briefly describe the 'Illuminati Conspiracy'; a vast societal group that is seeking world order. Through many planned assassinations, disasters, and messages, the elite Illuminati have been putting the non-believers into a hypnotized 'trance'. As a component to keep their messages somewhat camouflaged, these Satanists use a lot of mathematically and numerically...
...Death of OsamabinLadenOsamabinLaden, the former head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda, was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, shortly after 1 am local time by Navy SEALs of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group (also known as DEVGRU or SEAL Team Six). The operation, code-named Operation Neptune Spear, was carried out in a Central Intelligence Agency-led operation. In addition to DEVGRU, participating units included the U.S. Army Special Operations Command's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and CIA operatives.The raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was launched from Afghanistan. After the raid, U.S. forces took bin Laden's body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried it at sea within 24 hours of his death.
Al-Qaeda confirmed the death on May 6 with posts made on militant websites, vowing to avenge the killing. Other Pakistani militant groups, including the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, also vowed retaliation against the U.S. and against Pakistan for not preventing the operation. Bin Laden's killing was generally favorably received by U.S. public opinion; was welcomed by the United Nations, NATO, the European Union, and a large number of governments; but was condemned by some, including Fidel Castro of Cuba and Ismail Haniyeh, the head of...
...Why Muslims do not take binladen as a hero?
OsamaBinLaden is dead. The U.S. government has been on his trail for almost 13 years and after America offered $25 million on his head—dead or alive he simply became the target of the largest manhunt ever taken in the history of mankind. But not everyone celebrated Bin Laden’s death. Not everyone saw him as a terrorist, in fact, some thought of him as a hero. Although BinLaden may be regarded as a hero, but by killing innocent civilians, hijacking the noble religion and culture of Islam, and pushing the Al-Qaeda's mentally challenged individuals as suicide bombers he has to be considered as a true terrorist.
The debate about BinLaden is a big and a very controversial one. Some people, like the Afghanistan people, might think that binladen is a hero for taking revenge for Muslims from America. They might believe that by planning for the 9/11 events, BinLaden showed America that Muslims can fight back. Also, the fact that he was killed without a trial made a lot of people question whether it was the right thing to do or not. According to Ortiz and Kirschbaum's article from Reuters, Spain’s Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriquez Zapatero went the farthest, becoming the first European leader to say openly that...
...OsamaBinLaden; the mastermind of 9/11
December 21, 2012
OsamaBinLaden changed the world on September 11, 2012, when he orchestrated the 9/11 bombings on the World Trade Center in New York City. He has also formulated many other attacks including the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, and attacks on the US embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 1998 (Encyclopedia of World 1). OsamaBinLaden had a negative influence on societies, economies, and religion throughout the world because of his actions in masterminding many radical terrorist attacks, and because he created and funded al-Qaeda.
OsamaBinLaden had a dramatic effect not only on the society of the United States but also worldwide. These radical attacks have resulted in changes to the way society conducts business, travel, immigration, and most importantly, how people view and trust each other. Simply put, it has in many ways resulted in a drastic change to many people’s behaviour. The attacks of 9/11 resulted in increased security exponentially. After these attacks, airport security was amplified. Other security measures were implemented such as every time someone flies they are required to undergo body scanning; they...
...* President Obama on the Death of OsamaBinLaden
* 1. The speaker of this rhetoric is the current president of the United States of America, Barack Obama. The thing that makes him qualified to speak on this subject is that he is the president and is in charge of the country. He is the person that gave the green light to Seal Team Six to make the move on the compound where BinLaden was believed to be hiding. The only biographical detail that seems significant given the subject of the speech is that it is the president’s responsibility to alert the public on the major events that happen in our country.
* 2. This speech is basically about President Obama ordering Seal Team Six to infiltrate a compound in Pakistan where OsamaBinLaden was hiding; ultimately resulting in his death. Obama tells how he was collecting Intel for 4 months before he finally felt like he had enough evidence to make a move on BinLaden; a man who was believed to be behind thousands of murders in Afghanistan and a leader of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. He has evaded capture for the last ten years and was finally brought to justice. This event is significant to everybody because it symbolized a big blow to terrorism in America since he was believed to be one of the conspirators behind the bombing of the World Trade Center on September...
...vigilant and report any suspicious activity. We can certainly blame the man behind the 9/11 attacks, OsamabinLaden, but I think we can also blame ourselves. Almost a decade into the war in the Middle East, are we anywhere close to defeating the “war on terror”? Instead of a costly war, maybe the solution starts with us here at home and how we, as Americans, can defeat terrorism simply by taking our lives back.
So who is OsamabinLaden and where did he come from? Like most Americans, I was unaware of who binLaden was until after 9/11. To the U.S. government, he was a well known figure who first emerged in1979 when he joined an Islamic resistance force to combat the Soviets during their invasion of Afghanistan. By 1990, BinLaden returned to his native Saudi Arabia as a hero and was credited for the Soviets withdrawal out of Afghanistan. The war in Afghanistan had a profound impact on BinLaden. "In this jihad, the biggest benefit was the myth of the superpower was destroyed, not only in my mind, but in the minds of all Muslims," BinLaden said. Jihad, the word for struggle, is used by binLaden to mean holy war.” As the war drew to a close, the increasingly radical binLaden formed al Qaeda, or "the Base" in...
...Usama binLaden and His Selection Of Terrorism
Usama binLaden, born in 1957, comes from a wealthy Saudi Arabian family that owns a multinational construction business. He used his inherited wealth to finance Afghan forces fighting the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980's. After the 1991 Gulf War, he was distressed that Saudi Arabia allowed U.S. forces to remain in the Arabian Peninsula. To advance his agenda of expelling the U.S. from the Islamic world, he worked with other anti-Western fundamentalists to organize a secretive, highly compartmentalized terrorist network, known as al-Qaida. It is through his upbringing, education, culture, and wars in Islamic countries, that Usama binLaden has sought to purge the Islamic world of the influences that he believes have corrupted and degraded it.
Usama binLaden was born in 1957 in Saudi Arabia. He was the seventeenth son of 51 children of Muhammad binLaden. His father was of Yemeni descent, and his mother was from Saudi Arabia. Usama's father was the dominant figure in the family, and Usama may have obtained his strong Islamic heritage from his father. "He had a tough discipline and observed all the children with strict religious and social code. He maintained a special daily program and obliged his children to follow."1 Over and above the...
...American society. OsamabinLaden was the founder of the most well known Islamic militant organizations called Al-Qaeda. His goal was to remove and end American military presence in the Middle East and Arabian Peninsula, end American support for Israel, return East Timor and Kashmir to Muslim rule and overthrow any Arab regimes that he considered corrupt and insufficiently religious. Al-Qaeda is the most innovative and dangerous terrorist group that has ever existed according the American government and all other countries that have been victims of terrorist acts. It has been known to engage in suicide attacks, kidnappings, hijackings and recruiting new members through the Internet. Al-Qaeda’s operating network consists of a multinational, stateless army, and a radical Sunni Muslim movement calling for Jihad. Jihad is an important religious duty of Muslims that involves the protection and keeping of the Islamic faith. In the book, The Age of Sacred Terror, authors Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon provides essential insight into the thinking of binLaden and his followers. Benjamin and Simon talks about bin Laden’s first televised interview with Peter Arnett in March 1997. During his interview he complained and stated, “the truth is that the whole Muslim world is the victim of international terrorism, engineered by America at the United Nations. We are a nation whose sacred symbols have been...
