The leader of al-Qaida Osama bin Laden has vowed to keep fighting against the Jewish state and its Western allies on the occasion of Israel's 60th anniversary in an audio released on an Islamist website Friday.
"We will continue the fight against the Israelis and their allies ... and will not give up a single inch of Palestine as long as there is one sincere Muslim on earth," bin Laden said in his latest message.
"The participation of Western leaders with the Jews in this celebration confirms that the West supports this ugly Jewish occupation of our lands and that they stand in the Israelis' trench against us," Laden added.
In addition, he said Western media had painted Israelis as victims, and described the Palestinians who had been displaced from their land as terrorists.
On March 20, bin Laden called on Muslims to continue their fight against U.S. occupation in Iraq, as part of their struggle to liberate Palestine.
