The voice on the tape, broadcast by Dubai-based Al Arabiya channel and then by Qatar-based Al Jazeera station, said there would be no truce with the United States. The taped message also vowed revenge on Israel for the death of Hamas leader Ahmed Yassin, killed last month in Gaza. It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the tape though the voice sounded like previous tapes thought to be genuine. The CIA has said some previous tapes purportedly from bin Laden were likely to be genuine. Bin Laden's al Qaeda network is blamed by Washington for the September 11, 2001, attacks on U.S. cities. The tape said the March 11 train bombings in Madrid that killed 191 people were payment for Spain's actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and "Palestine." "What happened on September 11 and March 11 are your goods returned to you so that you know security is a necessity for all," the voice on the tape said. Madrid sent troops to Iraq after Saddam Hussein was toppled and also has a contingent in Afghanistan. Militants claiming links to al Qaeda have claimed responsibility for the Madrid bombings, which have raised pressure on the government to withdraw Spanish troops from Iraq.
