(Newser) – A new audio message apparently from Osama bin Laden blames Arab leaders for “sacrificing” Palestinians and calls for followers to "liberate Palestine," CNN reports. “Each one of us is responsible for the death of our people in Gaza,” the tape says. The message, posted on Islamist web sites yesterday, also calls for an end to the Gaza blockade. It marks the second such release in three days.
