November, 2002 Osama Bin Laden’s Letter to America

In his “Letter to America” published in November of 2002 (with authorship attributed to bin Ladin), seven points were made which the United States must adhere to, if peace is to be made.  They fall under the following subjects:

  • America must embrace Islam
  • Immediately halt all “oppressions, lies, immorality and debauchery.”
  • Acknowledge that America is a “nation without principles or manners.”
  • Stop supporting Israel in Palestine, the Indians in Kashmir, Russians in Chechnya, and the Manila government against Muslims in the Philippines.
  • To “pack your luggage and get out of our lands.”
  • “End support of the corrupt leaders in our countries. Do not interfere in our politics and method of education.  Leave us alone, or else expect us in New York and Washington.
  • Interact with Muslims in arenas other than those surrounding policy of “subjugation, theft and occupation.”
