Bin Laden’s mom says he was a good boy who fell prey to ‘a cult’ By Natalie O'Neill 2-3 minutes

A mother’s love really is unconditional.

Osama Bin Laden’s mom says her ruthless terrorist son was a good boy who fell prey to “a cult” — and shouldn’t be blamed for the attacks on 9/11, according to a report.

In her first-ever interview about the notorious Al-Qaeda leader, Alia Ghanem insisted her son grew up sweet and was led astray by bad influences, according to the UK Guardian.

“He was a very good kid and he loved me so much,” Ghanem, who is in her 70s, told the paper.

“He was a very good child until he met some people who pretty much brainwashed him in his early twenties. You can call it a cult. They got money for their cause. I would always tell him to stay away from them, and he would never admit to me what he was doing, because he loved me so much,” she said.

Speaking from inside her family’s mansion in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, she explained how Bin Laden first became pious and radicalized in his early 20s while studying economics at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah.

“At the start, we were very proud of him. Even the Saudi government would treat him in a very noble, respectful way,” Ghanem said.

But when she learned he had become jihadist, she was crushed, she said.

“We were extremely upset. I did not want any of this to happen. Why would he throw it all away like that?”

She is Laden’s mother, what else can she say?

Jeff Dahmer’s and Ted Bundy’s mums probably stood up for their miscreant sons as well.

LOL!
Too easy, and I see many posters have already provided the comment.
Islam IS a cult. Osama's problem is he decided to take it literally.
It is an interesting contrast. Christians taking their Book (the Bible) literally become servants, and helpful, to others. Including unbelievers.
Islamics, that take their book (Koran) literally become murderers of others.
One book was written by God (the Bible), and the other by Satan (the Koran).

So the muslems live by Mooohameds word as long as they can be compy and have it easy? Bin-Laden gets exposed to the REAL ISLAM and he likes it and it pisses off the establishment? Do they live that duplicitous, hypocritical lives as to not be able to see that he was only doing what they raised him to do? What his holy book said to do? The very same book he was rasied on.

Stupid, ignorant woman.

He had a Mom?

I thought he simply generated from a pile of ooze at the end of a storm drain.

Islam is in fact a cult. A very old cult. With the crossed swords the words for “in the name if Allah” in Arabic script look like the symbols often interpreted as “666” with gematria.

She and UBL’s 30-odd siblings should all be dead.

The fact they aren’t speaks volumes about how much influence the Saudis have, and how much they protected UBL.
