AI-Qaida Leader Recalls Bin Laden’s Generosity
Osama Bin Laden is such person who spent all his personal wealth on jihad. As meat and electricity are considered as luxury, so he could save his money for helping fund which is needed for terror attacks, according to his deputy and successor recollection which posted online last Saturday.
The new leader of AI-Qaida is Ayman al-Zawahri who said in the second of his “Days with Imam” series of videos that Bin Laden would pay readily for the persons who belong to his guest list, for their proper hospitality.
When bin Laden was killed in U.S, Al-Zawahri reserved the position of second head of Al-Qaida, who spoke conversationally while dressed with a white Arab robe and turban. While his predecessor had the personal authority within the far-flung terror network, he is not only believed to lack this authority but also trying to boost his own popularity which is accomplished by emphasizing his closeness to the more charismatic bin Laden. According to al-Zawahri, though bin Laden was born to a wealthy family ran into a financial trouble that occurred after he was pushed out of Sudan in 1996.
While Bin Laden spent $50,000 to help finance which was responsible for bombings of U.S in 1998, he only had the amount of $55,000 to his name.
Al-Zawahri said that bin Laden was generous to his devoted bodyguard. Once in Afghanistan, when bin Laden was came under shelling, bodyguard who were devoted to him took him to a wall and formed a human shield around him.
The first video in the series was posted on jihadist Web sites in November where Al-Zawahri said that he wanted to show the human side of Bin Laden.
