Osama's son: Condemns "Bin Laden is a mass murder"
For Omar Bin Laden, the fourth eldest of Osama bin Laden's 20 known children, the awful realization that his own father was a terrorist mastermind plotting a global conspiracy that would destroy the lives of thousands of innocent people and even his own family came gradually.
All the while Osama expected Omar ( his son ) to become his second-in-command.
( Binny to his son: )
"You hold no more a place in my heart than any man or boy in the entire country. This is true for all my sons." Omar writes: "I finally knew exactly where I stood. My father hated his enemies more than he loved his sons."
...his father is the most famous mass-murderer alive today. "During these years of loss and sorrow, I have had to reconcile myself to the truth about my father," writes Omar.
I often wonder if my father has killed so many times that the act of killing no longer brings him pleasure or pain. I am nothing like my father. While he prays for war, I pray for peace."
The younger bin Laden fled Afghanistan only when it become clear that Osama was planning a massive attack on the United States; but he still couldn't accept that his father was responsible for 9/11 until months later when he heard the familiar voice on audiotape claiming credit for the attacks. "That was the moment to set aside the dream I had indulged, feverishly hoping the world was wrong and it was not my father who brought about that horrible day," he writes. "This knowledge drives me into the blackest hole."
