Bin Laden Urges Holy War Over Palestine

Pan-Arab Al-Jazeera TV on Thursday broadcast what it describes as a new audio tape by Osama bin Laden in which the al Qaeda leader slams Palestinian negotiations with Israel and urges holy war for the liberation of Palestine.

Bin Laden says in the recording that "Palestine cannot be retaken by negotiations and dialogue, but with fire and iron."

If Thursday's recording proves to be that of bin Laden, it will be the second audio by the al Qaeda leader in as many days. Al-Jazeera did not say how it obtained the recording.

In a tape released Wednesday, bin Laden accused Pope Benedict XVI of helping in a "new Crusade" against Islam and warned of a "severe" reaction to European publications of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that insulted many Muslims.
