Of all people I wanna know YOUR opinion on this chick:

Bin Laden's Niece Seeks Acceptance
Law Graduate Poses in Racy Photos in Magazine

NEW YORK (Dec. 23) - Osama bin Laden's niece, in an interview with GQ magazine in which she appears scantily clad, says she has nothing in common with the al-Qaida leader and simply wants acceptance by Americans.

Talk About It: Post Thoughts



"Everyone relates me to that man, and I have nothing to do with him," Wafah Dufour, the daughter of bin Laden's half brother, Yeslam Binladin, says in the January edition of magazine, referring to the Al-Qaida leader.

"I want to be accepted here, but I feel that everybody's judging me and rejecting me," said the California-born Dufour, a law graduate who lives in New York. "Come on, where's the American spirit? Accept me. I want to be embraced, because my values are like yours. And I'm here. I'm not hiding."

Dufour, who adopted her mother's maiden name after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that have been blamed on bin Laden, appears in several provocative photos in the magazine.

In one, she is sprawled on a bed wearing lingerie and a feather boa. In another, she appears in a bubble bath filled tub.

The pictures are likely to be considered obscene by conservative Muslims in and outside of Saudi Arabia where women are required to be veiled.

Asked if she would like to perform her music in the Middle East, Dufour says her mother, Carmen Dufour, would be too afraid that "someone would want to kill me."

"Listen, I would love to raise consciousness. Maybe women could hear the songs and realize that I'm doing my dream and hopefully they can, too," she said.

Yeslam and Osama are among 54 children of the late Saudi construction magnate Mohammed bin Laden and his 22 wives. The extended family includes several hundred people.

Binladin, who received Swiss citizenship in 2001, has condemned his half brother "for his acts and his convictions." He intentionally spells his name differently from his half brother.

In the interview, Dufour says she would not date a fundamentalist Muslim and that she cried hysterically when she witnessed the attacks on New York while staying with her mother in Geneva.

She has been dating the VP of A & R at J records Larry Jackson who happens to be a black man. Just thought I'll add a little info. I doubt America is going to accept her due to what Bin Laden did.

This being a country in which people can practically be famous for nothing (Paris Hilton, anyone?), I personally think that SHE'S using her uncle to get famous. She has a different last name than him, and could have easily just lived without anyone knowing she's his niece. Nice of her to remind us.

Basically, being a scantily clad niece of the world's favorite religious fundementalist nutjob gets her ATTENTION. She doesn't care about being accepted; what she does want is ANOTHER front page headline with a major tabloid.

Hi Roxie,

I don't know her, so I don't think anything about it.


I guess you're right. She's trying to get publicity for her music career. She sings.
