No more excuse for Western invasion in Middle East: Iran

Dammam: Soon after US President Barack Obama announced the killing of Osama bin Laden yesterday, social networking sites were abuzz with varied reactions by young people from the Muslim world. Some reacted with cautions, some with skepticism, some with hard hitting words, some with conspiracy theories and some even  with humorous comments.


"How many time(s) we heard Osama Bin Laden's death?. 'I want justice', Bush said. There's an old poster out West that said, 'Wanted, dead or alive'. We Muslim(s) also want justice? Ironically, US was unable to bear the brunt of one 9/11. Here w...e Muslims face every day 9/11 by US hegemony? After assassinating Bin Laden, whether US will stop settling the score against Muslims for unknown crime of them. Will US will withdraw it(s) forces from M(iddle)E(ast) and stop drown attack(s), killing innocent and hapless civilians from Pakistan and Afghanistan?", Suhail Raza wrote on Facebook as US president announced Osama bin Laden's killing.


“Yes, why would the Americans do that?” Arab News noted Saudi teen Yasin Malaika as writing on Facebook. “They are hiding something. Where is the proof that he died? Show me the picture. If he were killed which the Americans say he was then it would make immense sense for them to make the body public."

As the evening wore on, and reports of Bin Laden's body being buried at sea surfaced, a series of questions were raised. Facebookers and Tweeters went wild as links to the story were posted or re-tweeted.

“I had a vague feeling in the morning that something is not alright,” wrote Yasin Malaika. “When they announced that he had been buried at sea it only confirmed any worst doubts that there is something amiss.”

Rami Salamé Tweeted: "BinLaden was buried at sea, just like Alfred Hitchcock, yet another famous movie-maker.” And then, “Bin Laden’s burial at sea is yet more proof that the USA doesn’t care for the environment!”

Ahmed Al Omran wrote: “The news about burying Bin Laden’s body in sea are strange. That they describe this as ‘in accordance with Islamic Sharia’ is even stranger.”

Tweeter Hussein Shobokshi was livid at Benjamin Netanyahu's comments on Bin Laden's death.


“A killer commenting on the death of a killer — Netanyahu on Bin Laden! Pathetic,” he wrote. “2011 keeps producing surprises! What a year!”

Another Tweeter Mahmoud Sabbagh wrote: “The agenda of the Arab world today is dignity and democracy. The UBL agenda faded years ago.”

And in another one, he said: “The damage Bin Laden had caused Islam is beyond appalling and a collective shame.”


S.K.A. tweeted: “People questioning Bin Laden's death. The Americans celebrating his death and people are sad about his death ... I'm still in shock!”


But the most interesting comment was from Abdullah Mohiuddin. “Now that Bin Laden is dead, can I finally bring shampoo on a plane?”, he tweeted soon after the news of Osama bin Laden's death hit the headlines.
