The Bin Laden Name Sure Doesn’t Help…..
“Her uncle is the world’s most wanted man….which makes this provocative pose by Osama Bin Laden’s niece either very brave or extremely foolish,” says the newspaper.
Indeed, Wafah, 26, is shown half-naked on a bed with a feather boa and pouting in a bubble bath while holding a glass of champagne. Flesh and alcohol! Oh my God, the Saudi religious conservatives must be having conniptions, and Osama too if he’s even still alive.
The New York-based Wafah has been trying desperately to launch her singing career for several years now, but I have a feeling that she’s never quite going to be able to make it in America, even if she has adopted her mother’s ‘Dufour’ surname.
She is never going to be able to erase the fact the she is the daughter of Yeslam Bin Laden, the half-brother of Osama, even if she doesn’t have Saudi nationality.
If I were her, I wouldn’t live in America, especially in New York City….not after what the Saudi terrorists did on 9/11. That’s just pure, common sense!
“I was born in the States, and I want people to know I’m American, and I want people here to understand that I’m like anyone in New York,” she told GQ.
Well…I’m not sure that some New Yorkers are feeling that forgiving, even if Wafah hasn’t been in Saudi since she was 10.
