In his first interview with a western newspaper Omar - who is married to Moulton parish councillor Jane Felix-Browne - says:
He wants to stop bombings throughout the world.
He is looking forward to setting up home with Jane in England.
“We want to stop the bombings everywhere in the world... and to think, to find a new solution”
THE son of the world’s most wanted man has spoken for the first time about his plans to help achieve world peace.
Omar bin Laden, the fourth son of Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and husband of Moulton parish councillor Jane Felix-Browne, spoke exclusively to the Chronicle this week.
In his first interview with a British newspaper Omar, 27, said he was “looking forward to making peace for everyone, everywhere”.
The couple are preparing to embark on a 5,000km trek from Egypt to Morocco on horseback to raise awareness of their work as peace ambassadors, and to raise money for victims of war.
Speaking yesterday from the home he shares with 52-year-old Jane in Egypt, Omar said: “People can come and join, and ride with us. We need support and help – all the different religions and nationalities.
“Any man who wants to help, we will tell him ‘you are welcome to join us’ and ‘let us think about how we can help the world’.”
Jane, of Main Road, Moulton, said: “This is the message he has been spreading. He’s an ambassador for peace – we both are.
“And if we can help save one civilian life through what we’re doing, it will be worth it.”
Omar added: “We want to stop the bombings everywhere in the world and the fighting on every side and to think, to find a new solution.
“We have to work to do,” he said. “We want peace.”
And responding to the speculation about her husband obtaining a visa to enter England, Jane explained: “The situation is it’s ready. Neither of us has had any trouble travelling and we both fulfil all the criteria to get visas.
“So we can both come back should we want to. Omar is looking forward to seeing my home.”
