In truth, bin Laden doesn't much care about Israel. He has repeatedly said that his great enemy is America, not Israel.

The Palestinians and Syrians are very upset by the actions of Israel and her international backers, but other Arabic nations are more concerned with, say US troops being stationed in Saudi Arabia (something that bin Laden has vowed to end).

It is far too simplistic to assume that all Islamist violence is anti-Israeli.
