From a recent audiotape from Osama bin Laden, which had been broadcast by Al Jazeera: ” ‘We advise the importance of dragging the enemies’ forces to a long, exhausting and continuous battle. The worst fear of the enemy is street and city fighting, this is the war in which the enemy expects great losses. We stress the importance of martyrdom attacks against the enemy. These attacks inflicted on American and Israel a disaster they have never experienced before.’ ”
