Osama Bin Laden’s Will Shows That He Was Not Very Considerate
The will of Osama bin Laden, recently declassified and released to the public in an English translation, provides strong evidence that the late al-Qaeda founder was stingy and inconsiderate, preferring to allocate the lions share of his fortune to his terrorist interests and not to his family.
In distributing his 29-million-dollar lucre, bin Laden wrote, “I hope, for my brothers, sisters, and maternal aunts, to obey my will and to spend all the money that I have left in Sudan on Jihad, for the sake of Allah.”
Out of that massive wealth, the will does itemize a paltry allowance to his relatives in the form of a mere pound of gold for his females and two pounds for the males, respectively worth $15,000 and $30,000, according to Gawker. It’s better than nothing — still, must be hurtful for the beneficiaries to consider that Uncle Osama thought they were less important than his terrorism.
