The Pakistani Taliban promised revenge

Requests for revenge for the death of Osama Bin Laden has not been long in coming. The Taliban have warned that there will be consequences and pointed out its objectives: Pakistani political leaders, including President Asif Ali Zardari, the Pakistan army and U.S. facilities in Asian countries. "Now the rulers of Pakistan, President Zardari and the army will be our first target.

America will be our second objective," he assured Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the Taliban Movement of Pakistan, told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location. In fact, hours after the assassination of bin Laden, a bomb has exploded near a mosque in northern Pakistan, killing one woman and three children.

In addition, the Palestinian organization Hamas has insisted it is "murder" that must be answered and has called an "Arab holy warrior." "We see this as a continuation of American politics based on oppression and bloodshed Arab and Muslim," said Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas administration in Gaza.

Although aware of the doctrinal differences between Bin Laden, Al Qaeda and Hamas, Haniyeh insisted his conviction: "We condemn the murder and the death of an Arab holy warrior. We pray that God gives mercy to the real believers and martyrs. " By contrast, Ghassan Al Khatib, Palestinian government spokesman in West Bank (Fatah) believes "it is a positive development that will help peace and security in the world." It also condemned "the radical beliefs of bin Laden," according to Sal Emergui.
