CAIRO, Egypt, (AP) – Osama bin Laden says in a new message that al-Qaeda will continue its holy war against Israel and its allies until it liberates Palestine.

Friday’s message comes as President Bush wraps up his visit to Israel to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Jewish state.

Bin Laden says the fight for the Palestinian cause is the most important factor driving al-Qaeda’s war with the West and fueled the Sept. 11 attacks.

The authenticity of the close to 10 minute message could not be verified, but it was posted on a Web site commonly used by al-Qaeda.
