The Muslim Brotherhood releases a statement on Osama bin Laden’s death and asked the US to withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the statement released on Ikhwanonline, the MB reproaches the “vicious” media campaign waged against Islam that created a link between the religion and terrorism after the 9/11 Al-Qaeda attacks on the US. The MB asked the US to correct this negative image.

The group rebuked the US for assassinating bin Laden, insisting that they are against violence of any form. In the statement they wrote that after President Obama announced that US marine special forces had succeeded in assassinating Osama bin Laden, a woman and one of his children, “we find ourselves in a new situation,” but didn’t specify what they meant.

They did add that the group is “...against assassination and support a fair trial for any criminal, regardless of the crimes he committed.”

They also asserted that resistance against foreign occupation by any country is a “legitimate right,” sanctioned by all religious rules and international agreements. They went further to say that the “Zionist enemy” purposefully denies this right and re-labels “legitimate resistance,” with the word “terrorism.”

As long as there is occupation, they say, legitimate resistance will continue and, therefore, it is important that the US, NATO and the European Union end the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and recognise the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

The group ended the statement by sending a direct request to the US government.

“The Muslim Brotherhood asks the US to stop conducting intelligence operations against those who disagree with them and to stop interfering in the business of Arab and Muslim countries."

Osama is dead
Osama is dead and was killed by American SEALS. He got exactly what he justly deserved, a bullet in the head. Any Muslim who grieves over his loss is a terrorist. If you kill innocent Americans you can run, you can hide, but eventually we will find you. When we do you will end with a grave in the belly of a shark.

osama is a civil rightist
Osama was humble man. He would not hurt any one not even a fly. He was from rich family but was instead unhappy about poor muslims. He built hospiatals for Afghan poor. He sacrificed his wealth for others like me. He could have been rich and went for shopping to London mall in summer like what other rich Arab rulers are doing. He was an activist and he was a civil rights movement. I hope someone in Egypt will write the humble life of Osama so we can get inspiration from his life. Others will see him as a threat ans will throw his body into the sea but we should write a lot about Osama and even a book so other people can see how Islam is defending the poor the weak the hopless and the oppressed. Now, Osama is dead what excuse does israel have to stay in Afghan or Pak or Libya????

Do ypu still beleive the blufs of US and its allies
Brothers as far as my knowledge and experience as concern (after a decent research)what i can say was tim osman or famusly known osama bin laden was not assassinated on may 2nd neither in pakistan, he would have been killed prior to or soon after the 9/11 inside job which was carried down by the u.s intelligence with the support of us policy makers(if any has the doubt regarding this IN SIDE JOB NO problem i can give you authentic reference for it ,the book titled IN side job which was written by a western author,lose change the documentary done by two american youngsters, then the operation false flag, most importenly the contradicting statements made by the american authorities soon after the 9/11 inside jo ( so,if this particular inside job and its hidden agenda to be practice the designers of this inside job would have been assassinated or prisoned tim osman at that time it self, and wich they did it) further we have to think a bit why they selected pakistan to play there climax
