"It is a simple equation: As you kill, you will be killed. As you capture, you will be captured. And as you threaten our security, your security will be threatened," stated Laden through a tape posted on Al-Jazeera's website.
He also questioned, "How can it be right that you participate in the occupation of our lands, support the Americans in the killing of our women and children and yet want to live in peace?"
In the audio tape, he also claimed that the kidnapping of five French citizens in the African nation of Niger in Sep 2010 was a reaction to what he called France's oppression of Muslims.
Though the authenticity of the tape has not been verified yet but the France's Foreign Ministry did not give any comment on the issue.
