“On February 22, 1998, Osama bin Laden issued his most aggressive fatwa to date. Under the banner of the ‘International Islamic Front for Jihad on the Jews and Crusaders,’ his edict, published in Al-Quds al-Arabi, stated that ‘Muslims should kill Americans–including civilians–anywhere in the world where they can be found.’ The fatwa was endorsed by Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri’s Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the group [al Qaeda operative/FBI informant] Ali Mohamed had embraced since the [Egyptian President Anwar] Sadat assassination in 1981.”
