Bin Laden's son wants British visa - so he and his grandmother bride can live in Cheshire and have a surrogate baby

By DANIEL BOFFEY - More by this author » Last updated at 22:57pm on 12th January 2008

  Osama Bin Laden's son has applied for a British visa so he can live in Britain with his wife.

 

 

Omar Bin Laden, 26, who admits attending terror training with the Al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan, has been interviewed with his wife Jane Felix-Browne, 52, by British Embassy officials in Cairo, where he is currently living.

The couple plan to set up house in Jane's £550,000 home in Moulton, Cheshire, have a child through a surrogate mother and work as "peace activists".

'I'll bring him home': Jane, 52, and her husband Omar Bin Laden, 26, say they are planning to have a surrogate child in Britain

Omar and six-times-married Jane, who has changed her name to Zaina Al Sabah Bin Laden, have given the embassy access to their bank accounts to allow checks on the authenticity of their relationship.

The son of the world's most wanted man has divorced his first wife, the mother of his two-year-old son, to prove his marriage to Jane is genuine.

 

The couple claim they have been assured the visa application will be given the green light when the embassy receives the divorce documents from Saudi Arabia, proving Omar is solely married to Jane.

He and Jane, who has three sons and five grandchildren, married following a whirlwind romance in September 2006 after meeting outside the Pyramids in Cairo.

The couple made their application to the embassy in Cairo last November.

 

 

Lessons in terror: Osama bin Laden last saw his son in 2000

A UK marriage visa would give Omar, the fourth son of the architect of the 9/11 Twin Towers outrage, "leave to remain in the UK" with no time limit on his stay.

 

Initially, visas for spouse immigration are for two years, after which a person can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain, which would make Omar eligible for a UK passport.

Jane said: "The embassy staff are all very friendly and they are doing all the checks. It could take a while for the visa to come through but there's no reason in law why Omar and I should not be able to live in the UK together.

"It is very easy to get a tourist visa. Other members of Omar's family have had them, but we have applied for a settlement visa. We would stay in Cheshire where I have a house.

"We have been told there will not be a problem as long as we can provide the original documents from his divorce from his first wife. And that should be done in a week."

Meanwhile, the couple are organising a 3,000-mile horse ride from Cairo to Morocco in support of "peace" and in defiance of the threat of terrorist attacks in the area.

Earlier this month, the famous Dakar Rally for cars and motorbikes from Lisbon across north-west Africa to Senegal was cancelled because of fears of an Al Qaeda attack.

Last month four French tourists were murdered in Mauritania – through which much of the rally runs.

But Omar, who last saw his father in Afghanistan in 2000, told The Mail on Sunday:

"Associates of my father forced the cancellation of the Dakar Rally, but they won't stop me from riding.

"We want people to join us on the trek – Jews, Arabs, Christians, Muslims, it doesn't matter where people are from."

Jane and Omar reportedly divorced last year, but it had been staged following a series of death threats. Jane says they are now looking for a surrogate mother so that she can have a child with her new husband.

Immigration lawyer Laura Divine said the Home Office and Foreign and Commonwealth Office would usually accept an application for a marriage and settlement visa if all the eligibility criteria were satisfied.

She added: "They would want to see Bin Laden's divorce papers because it is the woman in this case applying for her husband to join her, and that husband must have only one wife."

The British Embassy refused to comment on individual cases.

In Jane's home village of Moulton, neighbours told of their surprise that Osama Bin Laden's son wanted to move from Egypt.

One said: "There's something different every couple of weeks – the last I knew she was getting divorced.

"Why would Bin Laden want to come to this cold, miserable climate? Give me Egypt any day."

He probably wants to be spiritually close to Mecca but Saudi Arabia turned him down so Cheshire is the next best choice.

That’s right, it won’t. OBL had about 50 kids. The one to keep a lookout for is Saad bin Laden, the chief of Alqaida.

Thanks for the ping, Granny...

Slightly misleading title there, IMHO... Until I read through the article I thought perhaps this was an incestuous relationship of sorts (reminded me of that “I am my own Grandpa” song. lol)

As for recruiting in the UK — that depends on whether Osama’s son is still active in terrorism efforts would it not? Perhaps he has seen the error of his ways?

As for recruiting in the UK

I was actually meaning to refer to the tremendous "pride" that the local UK jihadists would feel upon having not only someone with the Bin Laden name but Osama's actual son among them.

Hopefully he will be watched like a hawk and will not be able to blow his elephantine nose without authorities being aware (yes, I know, I'm an optimist too) and so any activities on his part in the direction of extremism would "hopefully" be reduced.

I would think that the knowledge that Bin Laden's son is living in the UK would be a tremendous magnet for jihadists, just to be near him would probably be such a thrill.

That's because you're a sane, honorable, healthy, non-jihadist lady  :-)

From the article:

The irony here is so profound that it absolutely takes my breath away.

Somehow I'm guessing that a tanker truck full of Paris Hilton's "Smell Like A Whore" perfume would not be sufficient to eradicate the toxic stench of those two.

I think she is being duped.

Did you see the article about the guy who talked about no go zones in England? Shouted down, discredited.

A prophet is without honor in his own country, kill the messenger.

Nope, England is in trouble. But then so are we. But in a different way than England for now.

Now I wouldn't be saying some of this if I believed those troublemakers in England had any good will. There must be a few that are ok, but the rabble rousers are calling all the shots.

Years ago it was harder than hell for an average American to get into England, not to change citizenship, just to live there for an extended period. You had to have a job waiting or plenty of money, and prove it in advance, so you wouldn't be a burden on their system.

Instead they wanted these freeloaders who are sucking them dry and have half the country scared. How stupid is that?

Sadly, it happens every day.  Look at the women who flock to death row inmates....imagine a similar mentality here, but attracted to a son of the worlds most-wanted terrorist.  Perhaps there's a similar, twisted psychosis going on.

Did you see the article about the guy who talked about no go zones in England? Shouted down, discredited.

Yes, that was also one that I posted here at Free Republic

Great Britain Bishop warns of no-go zones for non-Muslims (Too dangerous to enter)

A prophet is without honor in his own country, kill the messenger.

I do worry about the safety of this Bishop...he most likely has multiple fatwas on him at the moment.  Even though they haven't killed him (yet) they've still managed to harangue him into a blubbering, spineless apology.

Now I wouldn't be saying some of this if I believed those troublemakers in England had any good will. There must be a few that are ok, but the rabble rousers are calling all the shots.

I would wish to politely suggest that any muslims who think that they are of goodwill are equally worthless precisely because they allow the rabble rousers to call the shots.  The world would gain a slight amount of respect for Islam if they would police their own hysterics, and not leave them for the rest of us to deal with.

Their justification was that they wanted cheap labor, and they now reap what they sowed.

Getting divorced after only 5 months and lots of death threats. This woman will probably go after Salman Rushrie next. At least Rushdie is good at hiding.
