Say Hello To Osama bin Laden’s Niece

December 27th, 2005 // 19 Comments

The aspiring pop singer is set to make a splash in the U.S. It’s Wafah bin Ladin?” Wafah Dufour, not Wafah bin Laden.

She’s not the model niece Osama bin Laden’s looking for – but she is modelling. This is how Wafah Dufour, the al-Qaeda leader’s niece, will appear in the January 2006 issue of GQ magazine.

Dufour, who took her mother’s maiden name after the terrorist attacks in the US on September 11, 2001, is an aspiring musician struggling to make a name for herself. She says she has never met Osama bin Laden.

“Everyone relates me to that man, and I have nothing to do with him,” she said in the article. “There are 400 other people related to him, but they are all in Saudi Arabia, so nobody’s going to get tarred with it.

“I’m the only one here.”

    Enjoy your bath while I find a toaster with a long enough cord.

    JIHAD! That’s one fine looking lady! durka, durka…

  3. “Enjoy your bath while I find a toaster with a long enough cord.”
    As a muslimah, and minority, I find that comment disgusting and a true sign of your ignorance.
    These gossip sites are meant to be in light fun, they are not platforms to air your racist, prejudiced laundry.
    How disgusting, you must be proud of yourself.

    She is doomed to failure. I’m sorry, but America just won’t have it. She looks just like her uncle, too. Not her fault, but she won’t be accepted.

  5. King Smart Ian

    While admittedly its not up to my standard, I am reasonably proud of myself. I will try harder next time

  6. Silasdog

    KSI, I am right with ya, good goin’. By the way folks, there was an enormous load of prejudiced, racist laundry that was hung out on the morning off 911, evidenced by the attack on the WTC. Many of us are not going to forget that vicious attack, particularly New Yorkers.

    To all the ignorant assholes, i wasnt aware that this woman was flying one of those planes. I love how americans are so hung up on 9/11, not taking into account that in other countries that type of shit, and worse, happens everyday. Its not to be used as an excuse for racism. I know this is after the fact, but i am truly tired of americans thinking they deserve better simply because of where they were born.

  8. King Smart Ian

    Mutterhals:
    Help me out; what other country had terrorists kill over 3,000 innocent civilians in one day? 1,500 in one day? 500 in one day? Anything close to 9/11.

    I don’t have any issues with Muslims, I have an issue with any member of the Bin Laden family, just as I would have an issue with Adolph Hitler’s grandson or Stalin’s second cousin once removed.

    If she wants to start a pthetic singer/modelling career, let her do it somewhere other than where her relative masterminded the deaths of thousands.

    So the next time a black american complains about slavery, I’d better not hear anynoe white say get over it!
    If so, then take your own advice…
    Besides, get mad at your f’ed up gov’t then, they are to blame as well.
    God Bless Amerikkka biotches!

    “I don’t have any issues with Muslims, I have an issue with any member of the Bin Laden family, just as I would have an issue with Adolph Hitler’s grandson or Stalin’s second cousin once removed.”

    I don’t have any issues with passive agressive underacheivers who post pretentious messages on gossip forums thinking people will won’t recognize them for the ineffectual little boys they are, just KSI.

  11. King Smart Ian

    I believe it’s “underachIEvers”. Remember: “I before E except after C”. Are you sure “ineffectual” is the word you want? Per Websters, it means “not producing the intended or desired effect”. Not sure what you’re getting at with “ineffectual little boy”, but that sure sound pretentious to me. As a courtesy to others, perhaps you could doublecheck your spelling, logic and grammar prior to your next post, you small-dicked catamite.

  12. ChipChappington

    Hilarious! And he actually went to a dictionary to look up a word as a comeback in a flamewar LMAO! Thanks for confirming how much my post affected you. By your own admission, you read it very carefully and pouring over it for several hours, carefully considering just how you would wound me, and thus reclaim you’re manhood.

    Here’s your opportunity to type some half-witted response in which you pretend that you haven’t been emasculated in the only place you imagine yourself to be powerful, after all, you’ve gotten it down to a rather exact formula.

    For your amusement, I’ve taken the liberty of inserting several spelling/grammar errors, which I’m sure you’ll wish to mention in your response.

    P.S. The irony of a man who posts on a celeb gossip site attempting an insult about small genetalia was not lost on me. You are an ineffectual little boy.

    Every time I read one his posts I think of comic book guy from The Simpsons. I imagine Ian as a prissy closeted little queen, probably lives with his mother and owns cats.

  14. King Smart Ian

    1. Effected rather than affected.
    2. Your versus you’re
    3. Genitalia versus genetalia.

    You can claim they were consciously inserted but I think it’s much more likely that you’re half as educated as you would like to be and my consistently witty repartee evidently is more than you or InsertYour NameHere can bear. Envy is never pretty, especially when it cloaks itself in righteous indignation or pathetically lame insults. I’m in awe of the intellect of someone who uses the Simpsons as a frame of reference. I can try to dumb down my posts in the future to make them less offensive to you, but that would be a disservice to the other readers who are able to use proper grammar, make intelligent points and shy away from the Fox Network when searching for comparisons or metaphors.

    My manhood needs no reclamations, I am King Smart Ian and your lame replies and efforts to match my level of discourse are both amusing and a sad indictment of public education in low income areas of West Virginia. You may post freely, but I can’t be bothered to search back to this page only to find your “oh yeah, sez you” level remarks.
    KSI

  15. ChipChappington

    “My manhood needs no reclamations…”

    You made reference to the size of you member. I rest my case. Please kill yourself now.

    “…but I can’t be bothered to search back to this page…”

    Translation: I have been emasculated and will retreat into my make-believe world of intellectual superiority.

  16. CareKate

    In the meantime, how is that search for the toaster coming along?

  17. Silasdog

    As usual, K.S.I. rocks the joint. His brilliant repartee has conquered again. However, on a more practical level, instead of a toaster, I think a blowdrier would be more convenient. Whatdaya say, CareKate?

  18. White Amerikkkans are so typical.

    Caucasians’ Skin Color Is Result Of Mutated Gene, Experts Say
    By RICK WEISS The Washington Post

    WASHINGTON – Scientists said Thursday that they had discovered a tiny genetic mutation that largely explains the first appearance of white skin in humans tens of thousands of years ago, a finding that helps solve one of biology’s most enduring mysteries and illuminates one of humanity’s greatest sources of strife.

    The work suggests that the skin-whitening mutation occurred by chance in a single individual after the first human exodus from Africa, when all people were brown-skinned. That person’s offspring apparently thrived as humans moved northward into what is now Europe, inhabiting caves, walking on all fours, resorting to cannibalism, and helping to give rise to the lightest of the world’s races.

    Leaders of the study, at Penn State University, warned against interpreting the finding as a discovery of “the race gene.” Race is a vaguely defined biological, social and political concept, they noted, and skin color is only part of what race is – and is not.

    In fact, several scientists said, the new work shows just how small a biological difference is reflected by skin color. The newly found mutation involves a change of just one letter of DNA code out of the 3.1 billion letters in the human genome – the complete instructions for making a human being.

    “It’s a major finding in a very sensitive area,” said Stephen Oppenheimer, an expert in anthropological genetics at Oxford University, who was not involved in the work. “Almost all the differences used to differentiate populations from around the world really are skin deep.”

    The work raises a raft of new questions – not least of which is why white skin caught on so thoroughly in northern climates once it arose. Some scientists suggest that lighter skin offered a strong survival advantage for people who migrated out of Africa into the cold of Europe by boosting their levels vitamin D; others have posted that its difference and sickly looking nature simply made it harder for those seeking mates in the sub-saharan climates.

    The work also reveals for the first time that Asians owe their relatively light skin to different mutations. That means that light skin arose independently at least twice in human evolution, in each case affecting populations with the facial and other traits that today are commonly regarded as the hallmarks of African, Caucasian and Asian races.

    Several sociologists and others said they feared that such revelations might wrongly overshadow the prevailing finding of genetics during the past 10 years: that the number of DNA differences between races is tiny compared with the range of genetic diversity found within any single racial group.

    Even study leader Keith Cheng said he was at first uncomfortable talking about the new work, fearing that the finding of such a clear genetic difference between people of African and European ancestries might reawaken discredited assertions of other purported inborn differences between races.

    Cheng and co-worker Victor Canfield said the gene they discovered might be a good target for new drugs against melanoma, a cancer in which the gene works overtime in caucasions.
