He should think more about how his daddy demeaned the family.

LONDON (Reuters) A statement purporting to come from a son of Osama bin Laden denounced the al Qaeda leader's killing as "criminal" and said his burial at sea had humiliated the family, an online monitoring service said.

The statement, attributed to Omar bin Laden, bin Laden's fourth eldest son, said the al Qaeda chief's children reserved the right to take legal action in the United States and internationally to "determine the true fate of our vanished father," the SITE Intelligence Group said.

There was no independent confirmation of the authenticity of the letter, published on the website of Islamist ideologue Abu Walid al-Masri, although several specialists on militant propaganda said the text appeared genuine.
Omar bin Laden, who has been based in the Gulf in recent years, did not immediately respond to emailed and telephoned requests for comment.

The letter said, in part: "We hold the American President (Barack) Obama legally responsible to clarify the fate of our father, Osama bin Laden, for it is unacceptable, humanely and religiously, to dispose of a person with such importance and status among his people, by throwing his body into the sea in that way, which demeans and humiliates his family and his supporters and which challenges religious provisions and feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims."

The letter said the U.S. administration had offered no proof to back up its account of the mission. It alleged the goal of raid had been to kill and not arrest, adding that afterwards the American commandos had "rushed to dispose of the body."

Some Muslims have misgivings about how U.S. forces killed bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan on May 2 and disposed of his body in the ocean.

Questions have multiplied since the White House said the al Qaeda leader was unarmed when U.S. helicopter-borne commandos raided the villa where he was hiding in the city of Abbottabad.

Bin Laden's swift burial at sea, in what many Muslims say was a violation of Islamic custom, has also stirred anger.

I said in the first thread on this, that OBL belonged to a sect that believe in burial in the ground.

Radical stems from root causes. It's not a bad word it's just been given a bad connotation. Our Founding Fathers were considered radicals in their time.

Actually, I have not heard of burial in the sea among Muslims. But that does not mean it's rejected.

To the best of my understanding, Muslim teaching rejects making a big showy grave. It's equated with idol worshiping. A Muslim's grave, again to the best of my understanding, should be level with the ground and becoming one with it in about something like 18 years.

I would see the effort to de-signify a grave's whereabouts in that practice as the same as burial in the sea.

So last summer I found out the hard way that poisin ivy was climbing up my back fence.
I wasn't even done rubbing Ivarest on the rash when I cut the poisin ivy vine at the base, spread stump killer on the stump them filled a cup with the stuff and placed the rest of the stem in it so the plant would start soaking it up.
I'd go out at least once a day to check on the wilting ivy leaves and talk to the plant saying, "Awe, that's too bad. Does it itch?"

I heard that burial at sea is fine if it is only option, likewise, that eating swine is also ok if nothing else is available and it avoids starvation. I think there are always exeptions. Is this true?

The eating of pigs falls into that category. Burial at sea has no reason not to fall in as well.
