The Iranian Revolutionary Guard released Osama Bin Laden's son, Saad bin Laden, on July 28 with the objective of sending him to the Syria-Lebanon border to build Islamic terror cells to help Hizbollah fight against Israel according to Die Welt, a German newspaper.

"From the Lebanese border, he has the task of building Islamist terror cells and preparing them to fight together with Hizbollah," Die Welt said, quoting intelligence information.

"Apparently Tehran is counting on recruiting Lebanese refugees in Syria for the fight against Israel, using bin Laden's help," it added in a preview of a report to appear in its Thursday edition.
Kamal Kharrazi, then Iran's foreign minister, said in January 2004 that Tehran had jailed about a dozen al Qaeda suspects and would put them on trial.

"Our general view is Iran certainly does have a few al Qaeda-related figures ... The general perception is Iran keeps these people as a bargaining chip," said a European counter-terrorism official when asked about the Die Welt report.

He said Shia Muslim Iran was not sympathetic to members of Sunni-dominated al Qaeda but "they protect them as long as they think they can make use of them".

This is an example of enemies banding together, forgetting all their conflicts for a while at least to fight what they see as a common enemy.
