Hamza Bin Laden: Al Qaeda’s Poet Laureate

by | 9th, July 2008

“WE now offer you a new poem by Sheikh Hamza Bin Laden, may God protect him.”

It’s “baby-faced Hamza Bin Laden * — just 16 but already dubbed the Crown Prince of Terror.”

The Sun has the young blade’s (surely suicide belt’s? – Ed) poem:

“Accelerate the destruction of America, Britain, France and Denmark.
“Oh God, reward the fighters hitting the infidels and defectors.
Oh God, guide the youth of the Islamic nation and let them assist with the fighters’ plans.
God, be pleased with those who want to go for jihad — and blind those who are watching and want to capture them.”

Hamza bin Laden is Al –Qaeda’s de facto poet laureate, and more than match for our own Andrew Motion would have found a decent rhyme for Denmark, like nark or snark, or possibly have ended the line with “France” and rhymed it with dance or former Neighbours star Holly Vallance.

* Irony update: Hamza shares his name with Abu Hamza, the firebrand of Finsbury Park who is blind in one eye. Other notable nutters with poor vision include: Sheikh Ahmed Yassi, Omar Bakri, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the older Bin Laden who has not been seen for months
