OBL was a hero to many muslims and there are no demonstrations in support of his death. In fact there are Imams and websites threatening retaliation. He was a symbol of the Muslim supremacy over the imperious and debauched west. There are many levels of support, most of it silent. Just like you can assume that most Muslims you see or hear of, as moderate as they may seem, will profess a hatred for Israel once you scratch the surface. That is the reality.

As to why OBL killed other Muslims, well that is because his fanatical beliefs, the Wahabbi/Salafists, encourage the murder of all infidels and unpious Muslims. Any Muslim who is not actively defending Allah is considered fair game, or if they are seen as collaborators with the west.
