Following is an excerpt from an interview with Saudi cleric and author Sheik Muhammad Al-Jazlani, which aired on Al-Arabiya TV on May 2, 20011:

Muhammad Al-Jazlani: Osama Bin Laden is the spiritual father of Al-Qaeda, and he continued to play a central role in that terrorist group, which has transgressed Islam. We can only say that rejoicing at the death of this tyrant is required by Islamic law. This is rejoicing at the grace granted by Allah. The reason is that the man caused great damage and evil to humanity in general, and to people in our countries in particular, as well as to Islam and the Muslims.
