” ‘Bin Laden has become a pan-Arab hero,’ Egyptian Islamist lawyer Muntasir al-Zayyat has said [in the October 19, 2000 edition of Al-Hayah], ‘because the Arab and Muslim people are yearning to [sic – for?] any voice that says no to the United States.’ Bin Laden is attempting to repel what he views as Christian aggression, to end what he considers the West’s deliberate ‘humiliation’ of the Islamic world, and to restore to Muslims their dignity and control over their destinies.”
