The Daily Times reported:

Omar Bin Laden, a son of Osama Bin Laden, has asked his father to stop killing civilians. In an interview in Cairo released by CNN, 26-year old Omar said he is talking publicly because he wants an end to the violence his father has inspired. “I try and say to my father, ‘Try to find another way to help or find your goal. These bombs, these weapons, they’re not good to use for anybody’.” He said he hasn’t spoken to his father since 2000, when he walked away from an Al Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan with his father’s blessings. He said he has no idea where his father is, but is confident he will never be caught because locals support him. Asked if his father might be living along the Afghan-Pakistan border, he said, “Maybe, maybe not.”

He said he and his British wife are pursuing a movement for peace. He said he doesn’t consider his father to be a terrorist. When his father was fighting the Soviets, Washington considered him a hero, he said. “I don’t think my father is a terrorist because history tells you he’s not.”

UPDATE: Omar Bin Laden also insists that his father is a very kind man and is sorry for 9-11:

Omar, who last saw Osama in 2000 when he decided to leave al Qaeda, said that he did not think his father was a terrorist and was sure that he must have felt very sorry for the September 11 terror attacks.

But, the sorrowful Osama has not yet asked for forgiveness in any of his numerous videotape releases.

That’s comforting.
