‘Occupation of our Palestine’: Osama Bin Laden’s 21-year old letter goes viral

As the ongoing Israel-Hamas war has left the world in splits, a 21-year old letter of infamous terrorist ‘Osama Bin Laden’ has gone viral on the internet. In his letter, the infamous terrorist Osama Bin Laden had said that America’s support to Israel for occupying Palestine was one of the reasons that led to 9/11 attack.

The article named ‘Letter to America’ was available for reading on ‘The Guardian’s website. However, after a huge debate erupted on the letter with many people showing their support to the dead terrorist, The Guardian has taken down the letter from its website. 

The 21-year  old letter resurfaced on TikTok where a large number of users agreed to Osama Bin Laden’s justification of the ghastly terror attack on America. 

After being widely shared and discussed on TikTok, the letter has gone viral on all the social media platforms with social media users and influencers giving their opinions on The Guardian’s article.


The letter by the al-Qaida chief, Osama bin Laden, was written after the 2001 attacks, the worst terror attack on US soil. It tries to justify the monsterous 9/11 attacks and links them, among other things, to “…support to the oppressive Israelis in their occupation of our Palestine”.

That seems to be the reason why Osama’s letter resurfaced and became viral.

Israel is at war with Hamas after its terrorists on October 7 butchered 1,400 Israeli citizens and kidnapped over 200 to Gaza.

Israel vowed to eliminate Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and its counter-attacks have left over 11,000 dead, according to Gaza health officials. The relentless pounding has reduced north Gaza into rubble and the Israel Defense Forces have now surrounded and raided Al Shifa hospital, the largest medical facility in Gaza. According to Israel, Hamas uses the facilities and tunnels below Al Shifa as its main command-and-control centre.

In another reference to statehood for Palestine, Osama says in the letter: “Palestine has been under occupation for decades, and none of your presidents talked about it until after September 11…”

Osama concludes his ‘letter to the American people’, saying “Palestine shall not be seen captive for we will try to break its shackles” and warns that the United States would “pay for its arrogance with the blood of Christians”.
