Osama Bin Laden dead: 'End of a dark era in U.S.-Muslim relations'
The president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council in Los Angeles said Sunday night that the death of Osama bin Laden “represents the beginning of the end of a dark era in U.S.-Muslim relations.”
“And hopefully it ushers in a new era of hope and democracy in dealing with the grievances of Muslim people throughout the world without resorting to political violence,” said Salam Al-Marayati. “Bin Laden has been sitting on an empty throne of self-righteousness while sending young people to their deaths.”
“This creates a rising tide of freedom and an enormous opening in terms of working with leaders throughout the Muslim world.”
