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.
