tel aviv - The 'crown prince of the jihad' is ready to take over the bloody throne of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Hamza bin Laden, Osama's favorite son, works in shadow on a reunion of Al Qaeda and Islamic State. According to him, the focus of muslim extremists must be back to deadly attacks on the West just sixteen years after '11 September '.
'Al-Qaeda's propaganda takes Hamza bin Laden into an increasingly prominent place,' said Gilles de Kerchove, the European Union's anti-terrorist, in an interview with a German newspaper yesterday. 'His rhetoric towards IS is little aggressive and his goal is presumably the approach between the two organizations. '
Terrorist expert and former FBI agent Ali Soufan believes that the 28 or 29-year-old Hamza passport is ideally suited to 'reunite the global jihad movement'. Now that the caliphate is on its hole and Al-Baghdadi is possibly dead, consider many extremists to join Al Qaeda, whose IS is a divorce.
Al Qaeda has worked relatively quietly in recent years on a fair march, especially in Yemen and Africa. In addition, it controls an important province in Syria. Unlike Islamic State, Al-Qaeda is a long-lasting movement, in which the old and little charismatic leader Ayman al-Zawahiri now slowly takes place for the vital Hamza.\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Hamza bin Laden was deployed early in propaganda images.
It was poured into the jihad. He has been depicted in Al-Qaeda's propaganda videos from early on and is determined to follow his father, who joined an action of the American Navy Seals in 2011. And to avenge.
In 2015 he will be pushed forward by Al-Zawahiri for the first time as the new 'lion' of Al-Qaeda. (Osama means 'lion' in Arabic.) Since then, he has come up with a series of statements, focusing in particular on Muslim youth in Western countries. 'The battlefield of Kabul, Baghdad and Gaza must be moved to Washington, London, Paris and Tel Aviv. '
In his last message, Hamza, whose recent photographs are not, reassigns extremists especially to war zones, but to save in their own country. 'Perhaps you desire sacrifice on the battlefield, but the punishment of Jews and Crusaders from which you come will cause the enemy more damage. '
The ominous message is accompanied by a tribute to past solo terrorists, including Mohammed Bouyeri, Theo van Gogh's killer.
