The response of Al Qaeda is in the West

The news of the decade surprised the Syrian cleric Omar Bakri Mohamed, leader for 20 years the radical better known in Europe and devoted admirer of Osama bin Laden, at his residence in Abu Samra district of Tripoli, where he resides since he escaped from Britain by his alleged links with the 7-J. The conversation with elmundo.

it occurred yesterday morning, just two hours after the world knew the death of Bin Laden, and tremor in the voice of the founder of the extremist group Al-charged Muhajirun attract potential Muslim jihadists in the most disadvantaged areas London, dissolved a few years ago, betrayed his state of shock.

Bakri never hid his sympathy for Al Qaeda or of violent jihadism in response to the West. And it seems that his position was a pose: a few months ago, the Lebanese Justice sentenced him to life imprisonment for having financed and trained Al Qaeda militants. The timely intervention of Hezbollah's legal team took a turn to you: Bakri was released hours later and returned to his home in Tripoli, Sunni stronghold in northern Lebanon, from where yesterday reacted to the news with regret the death of founder Al Qaeda and announced a possible answer "to be held in the West." Q.

- How has the news of the death of Osama bin Laden? A. - It is hard news, but not the first time a leader dies and his blessed death will not stop fighting the forces of evil. Not stopped the death of the emir Doku Umarov in Chechnya, or the disappearance of Abu Musab al Zarqawi in Iraq, and that shows that the struggle will continue.

But leaders like [Barack] Obama have the right to celebrate your small victory, since Bin Laden was able to put the West in deep trouble: their actions promoted the economic crisis and the security crisis that the world suffers today. Q. - Is it going to cause a response from Al Qaeda? R.

- Al Qaeda around the world will celebrate his martyrdom and choose the place and right time to respond. Remember to always be done carefully and that the response operation will be named Bin Laden, and will be in the West, not East. But will take place in due time. Q. - How its disappearance will affect the future of the organization? R.

- Bin Laden as a phenomenon rather than a man who has created several generations of fighters. He inaugurated the first generation of leaders of Al Qaeda, but he succeeded Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his partners in the Arab world, a third generation in Europe, a fourth appeared in the Maghreb ...

Now is the time they are acting. Of course the stronger leader, the best, was Bin Laden, but his death gives him more strength to the organization for what it meant. The raised awareness of the world's Muslims. Q. - How will ensure his death? A. - When one of us falls into an armed action, defending their beliefs, Muslims celebrate, we will not regret.

We do it with a celebration reminiscent of a wedding, the wedding of the martyr, where there is pain and sadness but also share the joy that should feel the martyr for having achieved their objective. Q. - The European Parliament president said that today we have woken up in a safer world.

R. - What? [Sigh]. I assure you that the world is now much more uncertain. Q. - What is the relationship you with Al Qaeda? A. - I am not a member of Al Qaeda because it is an honor that I deserve, I can only consider a supporter as any other Muslim oppression suffered by the West against the people.

I'm not even a fighter [said with a tone of regret in his voice] I can only consider an expert on Islamic movements and a strong supporter of any struggle against the occupation, whether Shiite or Sunni.
