The sons of recently slain international terrorist Osama Bin Laden have threatened to sue United States President Barack Obama over what they see as a savage and disgraceful treatment of their father’s dead body.
Osama Bin Laden’s son, Omar, recently issued a statement to an Internet site on behalf of his brothers, saying that Obama is responsible for his father’s death and for what they see as the deplorable acts, which followed the Navy SEAL operation to kill their father.
Omar stated that throwing his father’s dead body in the sea is not only “unacceptable,” but “humiliating” to the Bin Laden family.
Omar went onto to say in his statement, “From a human point of view it is impermissible to treat the body of a person in that manner, which as a matter of fact hurts the feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world.”
The burial Omar is referring is in response to the United States’ efforts to give Bin Laden a proper Muslim burial by placing his corpse in the sea. As it turns out, however, Muslim custom states that only people who have died at sea can be buried in the sea.
Omar bin Laden and a number of his brothers have stated that the family is determined to resolve what they see as a desecration by any means of the American and international justice system.
