Omar bin Laden: Peace Envoy

We noted last week one of Osama bin Laden's spawns is seeking a British visa. Now the Associated Press has a fawning interview with this cretin.
Omar Osama bin Laden bears a striking resemblance to his notorious father — except for the dreadlocks that dangle halfway down his back. Then there's the black leather biker jacket.

The 26-year-old does not renounce his father, al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, but in an interview with The Associated Press, he said there is better way to defend Islam than al-Qaida's militancy: Omar wants to be an "ambassador for peace" between Muslims and the West.

Omar raised a tabloid storm in Britain last year when he married a 52-year-old British woman, Jane Felix-Browne, who took on the name Zaina Alsabah. Now the couple say they want to be advocates, planning a 3,000- mile horse race across North Africa to draw attention to the cause of peace.

"It's about changing the ideas of the Western mind. A lot of people think Arabs — especially the bin Ladens, especially the sons of Osama — are all terrorists. This is not the truth," Omar told AP last Friday at a cafe in one of Cairo's new shopping malls.

Of course, many may have a hard time getting their mind around the idea of "bin Laden: peacenik."

"Omar thinks he can be a negotiator," said Alsabah, who is trying to bring her husband to Britain. "He's one of the only people who can do this in the world."
Sure. Good luck with that.

OK, if you want some peace, tells us where that shitstain father of yours is.
He said he hasn't seen or been in contact with his father since leaving Afghanistan. "He doesn't have email," Omar said. "He doesn't take a telephone ... if he had something like this, they will find him through satellites."
Let's pretend for a minute that's true. How would he know this if he hasn't seen or heard from him since 2000?

Now for a guy who claims to want peace, why not denounce your father?
Omar doesn't criticize his father and says Osama bin Laden is just trying to defend the Islamic world.

"My father thinks he will be good for defending the Arab people and stop anyone from hurting the Arab or Muslim people any place in the world," he said, noting that the West didn't have a problem with his father when he was fighting the Russians in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Omar is convinced a truce between the West and al-Qaida is possible.

"My father is asking for a truce but I don't think there is any government (that) respects him. At the same time they do not respect him, why everywhere in the world, they want to fight him? There is a contradiction," he said.
So he wants a truce? When did he say that? All we get from him, al-Zawahiri and that mealy-mouthed twerp Adam Gadahn is talk of havoc and violence.

When did they ever claim to want a truce?

Read the rest of the AP dreck if you can stomach it.
