Is Osama bin Laden worse then Adolf Hitler?

It depends on your opinion. Adolf Hitler caused many more deaths and discriminated against Jew's where as Osama bin laden gave away plans of the world trade centre to a group of terrorists which he has now joined. other than that, Bin laden hasn't directly caused any deaths but there are many indirect ways in which we suspect he has helped along terrorist attacks.

Personally i believe Hitler is worse

Why does Osama bin Laden hate the United States?

Osama Bin Laden and his hate for the US:To start off, probably the biggest reason he didn't like to U.S. is because we are the most powerful nation. Being power hungry, obviously, that's an automatic reason. However, there have been many things- militaristically, politically, socially, and economically - that he disliked America for. For example, when the U.S. made a military base in Saudi Arabia, Osama bin Laden thought that was the greatest possible desecration of the holy land, and was even asked to leave the country after threatening and speaking out against the royal family.

He also disliked the U.S. for backing Israel. Although Arab Brotherhood isn't completely corruption-free, someone going against any Arab country for Jews, was completely unacceptable in his eyes. Also keep in mind that Osama bin Laden was very fundamentalist. In the 1970s, the West (mostly including the U.S.) was economically influential. Being a fundamentalist, he hated capitalist influence.

Among other reasons, bin Laden supposedly hated the United States for other reasons, such as acts of imposition on other Arab countries for their oil. Whether or not he actually hated the U.S. for those reasons is arguable. However, he did use these reasons to rally support in neighboring countries, which contain people who DO care. For this reason, the man was scarily brilliant, similar to that of Hitler.

Bin Laden, in his 1996 fatwa (declaration) entitled "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places," identified several grievances that he has about Saudi Arabia, the birthplace and holy land of Islam. (and I quote directly from the fatwa):

"(1) The intimidation and harassment suffered by the leaders of the society, the scholars, heads of tribes, merchants, academic teachers and other eminent individuals;

(2) The situation of the law within the country and the arbitrary declaration of what is Halal and Haram (lawful and unlawful) regardless of the Shari'ah as instituted by Allah;

(3) The state of the press and the media which became a tool of truth-hiding and misinformation; the media carried out the plan of the enemy of idolising cult of certain personalities and spreading scandals among the believers to repel the people away from their religion, as Allah, the Exalted said: {surely- as for- those who love that scandal should circulate between the believers, they shall have a grievous chastisement in this world and in the here after} (An-Noor, 24:19).

(4) Abuse and confiscation of human rights;

(5) The financial and the economical situation of the country and the frightening future in the view of the enormous amount of debts and interest owed by the government; this is at the time when the wealth of the Ummah being wasted to satisfy personal desires of certain individuals!! while imposing more custom duties and taxes on the nation. (the prophet said about the woman who committed adultery: "She repented in such a way sufficient to bring forgiveness to a custom collector!!").

(6) The miserable situation of the social services and infra-structure especially the water service and supply , the basic requirement of life.,

(7) The state of the ill-trained and ill-prepared army and the impotence of its commander in chief despite the incredible amount of money that has been spent on the army. The gulf war clearly exposed the situation.,

(8) Shari'a law was suspended and man made law was used instead.,

(9) And as far as the foreign policy is concerned the report exposed not only how this policy has disregarded the Islamic issues and ignored the Muslims, but also how help and support were provided to the enemy against the Muslims; the cases of Gaza-Ariha and the communist in the south of Yemen are still fresh in the memory, and more can be said."

Bin Laden wanted to overthrow the Saudi monarchy (and other Middle East governments) and establish an "Islamic state" according to Shari'a law (Islamic Hole Law), to "unite all Muslims and to establish a government which follows the rule of the Caliphs[Muslim religious leaders who once governed the Ottoman Empire]." We might add that his vision called for an extremely strict version of Islam, but perhaps not as strict as the version being implemented in some Middle Eastern governments today. (Middle Eastern governments today are extremely repressive, have horrible human rights records, and are monarchical.)

However the US and other Western nations are supporting such regimes (in addition to killing Muslims through sanctions, wars, covert operations, bombing, and such) such as Saudi Arabia that bin Laden wanted to overthrow. Thus, according to bin Laden, Muslims must fight against such "oppressors" by killing Americans (and other people), including innocent people. According to this line of thought, if the US and other Western governments could get out of the Middle East, then repressive and "un-Islamic" regimes could be overthrown, and the only way to get Western governments out of the Middle East is to attack the citizens of those countries.

This is one of the main reasons bin Ladan hateed the US and other Western governments. However, the other reason is because of the Muslims that Western governments have killed. He explained this is his 1998 fatwa.

In his 1998 fatwa entitled, Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders bin Laden identified three grievances (and I quote) against the US:

First, for over seven years the United States has been occupying the lands of Islam in the holiest of places, the Arabian Peninsula, plundering its riches, dictating to its rulers, humiliating its people, terrorizing its neighbors, and turning its bases in the Peninsula into a spearhead through which to fight the neighboring Muslim peoples. (1)

If some people have in the past argued about the fact of the occupation, all the people of the Peninsula have now acknowledged it. The best proof of this is the Americans' continuing aggression against the Iraqi people using the Peninsula as a staging post, even though all its rulers are against their territories being used to that end, but they are helpless.

Second, despite the great devastation inflicted on the Iraqi people by the crusader-Zionist alliance, and despite the huge number of those killed, which has exceeded 1 million... despite all this, the Americans are once against trying to repeat the horrific massacres, as though they are not content with the protracted blockade imposed after the ferocious war or the fragmentation and devastation. (2)

So here they come to annihilate what is left of this people and to humiliate their Muslim neighbors.

Third, if the Americans' aims behind these wars are religious and economic, the aim is also to serve the Jews' petty state and divert attention from its occupation of Jerusalem and murder of Muslims there. The best proof of this is their eagerness to destroy Iraq, the strongest neighboring Arab state, and their endeavor to fragment all the states of the region such as Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Sudan into paper statelets and through their disunion and weakness to guarantee Israel's survival and the continuation of the brutal crusade occupation of the Peninsula. (3)

Some extra notes:

(1) Here he was talking about US troops in Saudi Arabia (the holy land of Islam), and about the gigantic amount of oil drilled their that is sold to the US, which he considered wasteful and an exploitation of the resources.

(2) Here he was talking about the 1990-2003 UN sanctions on Iraq, which was sponsored by the US and the UK. It might be recalled that the sanctions were partly responsible for killing an estimated 1 million innocent Iraqis, half of them being children. (Estimates go as high as 1.5 deaths , and as low as 170,000 deaths among children.) In fact Denis Halliday, United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Baghdad at the time, resigned from the UN in protest of the sanctions, saying: "I don't want to administer a programme that satisfies the definition of genocide.

(3) Finally, he was talking about Israel which he says is occupying neighboring Muslim land and oppressing the Palestinian people.

What is the reason that United States of America was unable to trap Osama bin Laden?

On May 1, 2011 President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces.

Previous answers:

The United States can't just barge into Pakistan without upsetting somebody so Osama Bin Laden is pretty much untouchable, unless the UN can come to an agreement.

It took the United States and Mexico 10 years to bring in Geronimo.

It took the USA. 7 years to find Eric Robert Rudolph.

It took Israel and the entire world 15 years to find Adolf Eichmann.

The world is a big place. Bigger than people realize. Have you ever gone to a crowded place like a sports event or an airport and gotten separated from someone? It can be difficult to find them. If someone doesn't want to be found in such a crowd, it can make your task even tougher.

Many experts think Osama bin Laden is somewhere along the Afghanistan and Pakistan border. That region is noted for its rugged terrain, its culture of hostility to outsiders and fierce loyalty.

Plus you have to remember, UBL spent a lot of time in that region in the 1980's and again in the 90's.

If he is in that region, we aren't going to find him. It will take a member of whatever tribe is keeping him safe deciding that its more trouble than its worth keeping him safe.

Another point to ponder is that maybe Pakistan is keeping him safe because he is influential and can organize and since Pakistan is paranoid about war with India, they want to keep all the help they can get.

At any rate, killing or capturing UBL now would do little. the time to have gotten him was in the 90's.
