The government of the land of the two holy places charges [its] public for the expenses of its attack on the Mujahiddeen in the so-called war on terror... on the pretext that there is no other way to implement the interest of the people. It is better that some damage be caused to the people in the interests of religion than in the interests of establishing the thrones of the despots and agents...' "
