Check out this hottie:
Bin Laden\'s Neice
The woman, Wafah Dufour, has a rather infamous extended family, her father being the half-brother of Al-Quaida Head Honcho Osama Bin Laden. Wafah, a Californian born, American-Values-embracing budding pop star, is currently enjoying a career as a pop-star. The picture above in from the December issue of GQ.

I was born in the States, and I want people to know I’m American, and I want people here to understand that I’m like anyone in New York. For me, it’s home.

Come on, where’s the American spirit? Accept me. I want to be embraced, because my values are like yours. And I’m here. I’m not hiding.

Wafah has, not suprisingly, encountered the occasional question regarding her family tree.

It’s really tough that I have to always explain myself…It’s like every time I meet someone, I have to move a huge mountain that’s in front of me, and sometimes I get tired.

Muffti isn’t sure, as he said in the lead, whether to laugh at the irony or cry at the implications. Or both. Or neither. Next time Islamicists say they are fighting the spread of american culture, remember the pic.

Anyhow, if you think this is all a little too sexy, here’s a quick quote from the online mini version of the GQ story:

The face is alluring (big dark eyes, long lashes, plump lips, caramel skin), but she looks wounded. And there’s something else. At first I can’t quite figure it out, but then it hits me: She looks a little like her uncle, albeit a waify ninety-eight-pound tiny-footed version. Sexy Osama!

*shudder* Muffti isn’t sure that the visual association made Osama sexier in the mind of the inteviewer, or Wafah less sexy…

And on that note, Shabbat Shalom all y’all. And a happy Hannuka. With no Christmas music.

About the author



  • They should send her to Guantanamo Bay and interrogate her until she talks or gains weight, whichever comes first.

  • middle, you’d be surprised. sarah jessica parker can not only walk in them, she can run in them.

  • she’s why islam hates the west: she’s a product of western imperial/market culture. she exemplifies the corruption of traditional muslim values.

    interesting question for chanukah: should muslim individuals and nations be forced to assimilate into western modalities?


  • well, she could do with some more clothing, but i think we should give her a chance…just cautiously.

  • mobius: The answer is … no. Let them wear chadors, burqas and keffiyehs, speak arabic, farsi or urdu, worship as they wish, celebrate ramadan, id il fitr and the feast of Ali. Go Islam!

  • when they are crossing the line from worshipping as they wish to the abuse of human rights, there’s got to be some violation of the prime directive. The good of the many outweighs the good of the few. For example, let them wear whatever hideous clothes they want and speak any languange they want, fine. But when they are burning women’s clitoris’s off, that’s not just not the same as ritual cirmcumsion. When they are teaching their daughter’s to blow themselves up in the name of heaven, that’s not just a traditional islam value that deserves protection, it’s a dangerous value that threatens the whole world.

  • Muffti is confused: Mob, there seems to be a hidden pressupposition behind your question, as in ‘their is some reason to think western assimilation should be forced on Muslims’. Otherwise, why is it an interesting question?

    And, yeah, the corruption of values was sort of Muffti’s point in the post.

  • Mufti,

    Really great meeting you last night. I had promised you a drink, and realized this morning that it never happened.

    I feel awful about that, as I do try to keep my word. I will make it up to you next time.


  • No worries, DK. Was nice to meet you too. Muffti can definitely say now that Kelsey is no Nazi. 🙂

  • Bush is real tight w/ her and her family. I wonder if she performs a private dance for him, the traditional middle eastern belly dance?

    It’s a shame what the extremists have done.

    I recently was stopped by a young lady asking me for directions in the city where I was in Canada. Not knowing I said as much, and we went together to find the location, as I was looking for the same place. Turned out she was an Egytian living in Saudi, she had a modern kind of head covering, more of a normal scarf than the whole wrap around thing. She was nice enough, but the whole climate makes it difficult to trust and hang out.
