Interview: Abdel Bari Atwan

Al Jazeera spoke to the chief editor of Al-Quds newspaper about Bin Laden's new message.

    In the latest Osama Bin Laden tape on Sunday, the al-Qaeda leader warned Barack Obama, the US president, that there will be more attacks on the US if it continues to support Israel.

    Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of al-Quds al-Arabi, said that as the peace process between Israel and Palestine falters and with the US conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan struggling, there is a great deal of frustration in the Arab world towards Obama.

    He said the Al-Qaeda leader is trying to use the frustration of the Arab world to recruit more people into his group and strengthen his movement.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
