On Osama Bin Laden's death

While the death of Osama Bin Laden is a big blow to terrorism and extremism, we believe that unless the international community addresses extreme poverty and inequality, the intolerance and the injustice that breeds his brand of radicalism, other Bin Laden's will simply take his place and continue with the work he had begun. The defeat of international terrorism is hinged on humanity's collective ability to defeat widespread poverty, intolerance and injustice in the world.

How we wish that his death will end terrorism. It will not. It will take more than Bin Laden's death to end the senseless terrorist killings.
