The following document constitutes a continuation of the document published by the author earlier, in which he noted that it was the first of a series of several documents. This document too is significant. It appears to have been written as a kind of commentary-article which seeks to clarify opinions and assessments of other educated Muslims, with whom the author is probably acquainted (perhaps as colleagues in the institute mentioned in the article) regarding the latest terror attacks and the involvement of Osama bin Ladin and Al-Qaida in them.
