Islamist Forum Debates the Fate of Bin Laden

by Abdul Hameed Bakier from The Jamestown Foundation

In response to an article posted in an Islamist internet forum entitled "Bin Laden...The Puzzling Disappearance," forum users spent a week discussing the possible reasons ... The participants in the forum postings agreed that the disappearance of bin Laden only frustrates al-Qaeda's enemies because Salafi-Jihadi leaders use the media only as needed and do not use it for political propaganda like the Muslim Brotherhood movement and moderate sheikhs in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. Furthermore, they insisted that, whether bin Laden is dead or alive, the jihad will persist until doomsday.
