Is Osama bin Laden a shiite?
No, Osama Bin Laden is a Wahabbi which is a Sunni sect noted for it's insistence on a return to what they consider the original, essentials of Islam. Wahabbism is named after Muhammad ibn Abd-al-Wahhab, who was an Islamic scholar from Saudi Arabia, and who became known for advocating a return to the practices of the first three generations of Islamic history. Wahhabi theology treats the Qur'an and Hadith as fundamental texts, interpreted upon the understanding of the first three generations of Islam and further explained by many various commentaries including that of Ibn-Abd-al-Wahhab. His book Kitab al-Tawhid ("Book of Monotheism"), and the works of the earlier scholar Ibn Taymiyya are fundamental to Wahabism. Like most scholars in Najd at the time, Ibn Abd-al-Wahhab was a follower of Ibn Hanbal's school of jurisprudence but "was opposed to any of the schools (Madh'hab) being taken as an absolute and unquestioned authority," and condemned taqlid. Wahhabism also denounces the practice of blind adherence to the interpretations of scholars and the blind acceptance of practices that were passed on within the family or tribe. Ibn Abd al-Wahhab believed in the responsibility of the individual Muslim to learn and obey the divine commands as they were revealed in the Quran and the Sunnah. Enjoining virtue and prohibiting vice Wahhabism is noted not just for urging Muslims to follow the religious duties of Islam, such as salah, but compelling them to do so. In the country of Saudi Arabia for example, the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, a state religious police unit, has been set up for this purpose. Fiqh Wahhabis are sometimes said to follow Hanbali school of fiqh (or Madh'hab) but also said to follow no school of fiqh. In a sense both statements are true. The Wahhabis consider themselves to be `non-imitators` or `not attached to tradition` (ghayr muqallidun), and therefore answerable to no school of law at all, observing instead what they would call the practice of early Islam. However, to do so does correspond to the ideal aimed at by Ibn Hanbal, and thus they can be said to be of his `school`. Above taken from Wikipedia with some minor edits by Kiwimac

Answer 1 Not for certain. It is the habit of the Super powers to act uponthis saying, 'Give the dog a bad name and kill him." This is whatAmerica is following. No true Muslim can be a terrorist as No TrueChristian or True Jew can be a terrorist because they worship thesame Almighty God (Allah in Ar…abic). Islam means peace. Terrorism is not associated with any religion.Terrorists are found because there is INJUSTICE around us. There islack of tolerance. We have divided ourselves on the basis of caste,color, creed, geographical bounds etc. Terrorists are the productof re-action of cruelty, suppression, maltreatment, insult, anddisgrace done to their nation, relatives or to them. They wantrevenge. Had there been the rule of Justice, there would have beenno terrorists. When we suppress a nation, tribe or people, occupytheir lands and destroy their houses and belongings, may be theyhave no alternative but to avenge themselves on the oppressors andsometimes on even innocent people. History shows Freedom Fighterstermed as 'Terrorist' by the oppressors/invaders but heroes bytheir own nation. The Americans who fought against the British towin their freedom were called terrorists. The Irish people fightingagainst UK are still called terrorists. The Negroes were oncecalled terrorists by the white people who occupied their lands andkept them in slavery for many decades. So, it is mostly from whichangle you see things and by which yardstick you measure others. Noreligious group can claim to be 'clean' and 'just' in this regard. Would you say that the actions against Muslims in Iraq,Afghanistan, Bosnia, Burma, Palestine, Israel, ... are notterrorist acts!!!! Answer 2 Osama bin Laden certainly was a terrorist (see Part 1 of thisAnswer), but it is unclear what this question is asking: Part 1) Definitional, Q: Why is Osama bin Ladenconsidered a terrorist? -- This is ratherstraightforward. A terrorist is determined by having the followingdefinition with six distinct parts: (1) a person who (2) usesviolence (3) against civilian populations (4) in order to provokefear among that civilian population (5) in order to instigate forpolitical change in the country where the civilians were attacked(6) in line with the preferences of the person who used theviolence. Bin Laden fits squarely in the definition, since he is(1) a person who (2) used violent acts such as World Trade CenterAttacks in 1993 and 2001 (3) against civilian populations - inthose cases, the civilian population of the USA, (4) in order toprovoke fear (5) so that Americans would rethink their position onMiddle East politics (6) and change the US Foreign policy to bemore along the lines of what bin Laden was advocating. This is whyhe is clearly a terrorist. Conversely, Answer 1 confuses the term"insurrectionist" or "rebel" with a "terrorist". An"insurrectionist" or "rebel" does not have (3) or (4) in thedefinition. Which is why, we never hear American Revolution storiesof Colonial soldiers bombing innocent people's homes with theintent of spreading fear of Colonial acts as pressure to abandonthe United Kingdom. In the case of Ireland, those were terrorattacks, and are rightly called so. Whether bin Laden is a "trueMuslim" is something Muslims need to decide for themselves, butregardless of where they come down on that, bin Laden will still bea terrorist. Part 2) Motivations, Q: What inspired/caused Osama binLaden to be a terrorist? -- It is much more difficultto know any person's true motivations, but bin Laden did leave usmany recordings and speeches which can be used to discern hisintent and motivations. These generally fall into two majorcategories: (a) Islamic Theological Views and (b) Grievances of theIslamic World. 2a) Islamic Theological Views: It must be notedthat this section deals with how bin Laden understood Islamictheology and what is said here is not necessarily what Islam (as areligion/ideology/philosophy) holds extrinsic to bin Laden.According to bin Laden, Islam is the natural mode of existence andall governments around the world should only be Islamicgovernments. The existence today of governments that are Islamicand governments that are not Islamic is unnatural and against theDivine Will and should be realigned to be Islamic. The march ofIslam should always move forwards so that more and more territoryis under the control of Islamic countries, bringing the world moreinto its natural state of Divine Guidance. Any government that isnot Islamic, therefore should be overthrown, especially agovernment that is not Islamic, but used to control landscontrolled by an Islamic States (such as Israel, Spain, andPortugal). In order to compel governments that are not Islamic tobecome Islamic, violence and force can be used if simple diplomacyis insufficient. 2b) Grievances of the Islamic World: Osama binLaden felt that there were a number of events in past US andEuropean foreign policy that were injurious to Muslims asindividuals or Islam as a religion. US and European support for theJewish State of Israel was one such grievance, as was ending theIndonesian occupation of East Timor and the repression of the EastTimorese Christians. He was also grieved by the fact that the USwas more than willing to fund his Mujahedin in Afghanistan as longas they fought against the Soviets, but stopped funding them assoon as the Soviets withdrew. He faulted the US and UK forOperation Ajax in Iran in 1953 and for funding both sides of theIran-Iraq War with impunity. He also was angered that the USsupported most Arab regimes which he thought were "not Islamicenough". While some of those grievances (and others) are certainlyworth entertaining as issues that Western countries should dealwith and perhaps apologize for, they are certainly not sufficientcause to engage in terrorist activities.

real Muslims do not let innocent people die . so HE IS NOT a Muslim ****************************** Okay, the above statement is not mine, but the following is: I don't know if Osama Bin Laden was good or bad. I wish I did, but I'm not sure since there are so many sides to the story. Who to b…elieve?? But one thing I do want to clear up is this: Muslims are NOT bad people. You can only be ONE thing. Either a MUSLIM or a TERRORIST. There is no such thing as a Muslim terrorist. Muslims are people who live in peace and follow their holy book. They do not bother others, and they do not expect to be bothered either. But, naturally, if you offend their beliefs and religion, then they will rightfully take a stand. Another thing is that many people class Osama as a bad person, because he killed many people, caused the 9-1-1, etc... But one thing to consider is this: WHY did he kill so many people? Was it even him? Does anyone have any solid proof? And if he really was supposedly THAT bad, why does he have millions of followers all over the world? And if he really was Muslim, then there has to be a reason behind everything he's done. But nobody has bothered to find that reason. And if they have, then they've just covered it up. And about the 9-1-1, the destruction of the twin towers has been caught on camera. But has anybody ever wondered how? And not just one camera, but MANY. I, myself, have seen so many different videos of the twin towers being hit from SO MANY DIFFERENT ANGLES! Some from above, others from below, some from the right, left, front and back! How? Do you really think Osama would have sent his own private paparazzi to film the attack? A point that has been raised to consideration is that the 9-1-1 was America's own conspiracy which they have been trying to cover up. They probably knew about the attack and stood there and filmed it. Because it was Americans themselves that handed all these videos to the media because it's pretty obvious that Osama wouldn't tell his men to film him attacking and then practically go hand the evidence to the world! How is it that all these people were positioned just perfectly to get a perfect shot at filming the towers go down? It was obviously planned. And everybody knows that if it really were Pakistanis, then they wouldn't have filmed it. And if they had, they wouldn't have given the videos to the media. So again, like I said before, it was someone else. Americans? Maybe. They were ready. They knew the attack was coming. That's why they were all positioned at the perfect angles, ready with cameras. Think about it. Don't be bias. Consider all the possibilities. Was Osama really bad? There must have been a reason behind the killings, right? ( Full Answer )
For being the world's most wanted terrorist and for setting up nine-eleven, or the twin towers accident.
He was wanted because he planned and carried out the attacks on American civilians on 9/11/2001, killing as many as 3,000 people; he and Al-Qaeda also carried out other attacks on civilians (including Muslims) in other parts of the world. His extremist views included the belief that anyone who did n…ot agree with his interpretation of Islam deserved to die. ( Full Answer )

No. Bin Laden's complaint about the United States was that they supported the dictatorial regimes in places like Saudi Arabia, which made it more difficult for Bin Laden to overthrow them and take them over himself. His concerns were political in nature, not religious.
