Abstract

At first blush, any comparison between (Ro)bin Hood and bin Laden seems odd, most certainly to the English-speaking world for whom 'bin Hood is a romantic robber whereas bin Laden is a despised terrorist. The comparison might also displease Muslim militants who see bin Laden as a spiritual sheikh fighting the crusaders.
