Another 9/11-style attack may be just around the corner if Joe Biden is elected president, warns Noor bin Ladin, the niece of Sept. 11 terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.
“ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading to them coming to Europe. Trump has shown he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike,” bin Ladin, 33, told The Post in her first-ever interview.
Bin Ladin (whose branch of the family has always spelled their name differently than her infamous uncle) lives in Switzerland but said she considers herself “an American at heart.” A full size US flag hung in her childhood room at age 12 and her dream vacation is an RV trip across America.
The stunning, Swiss-born bin Ladin says she is all in for Trump in 2020, calling the election the most important in a generation.
“I have been a supporter of President Trump since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015. I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve,” she said. “He must be reelected … It’s vital for the future of not only America, but western civilization as a whole.”

A Warwick man who was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison for conspiring to support ISIS and conspiring to commit an act of terrorism is asking for compassionate release.
Nicholas Rovinski, now 29, plotted to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller back in 2015, after ISIS issued a decree urging members to kill her over a cartoon contest of the Prophet Muhammad. The plot was never carried out.
According to court documents, Rovinski says he wants to be released to home confinement.
Rovinski’s attorney says the prison in Danbury, Connecticut where he is being held has had 15 cases of COVID-19 among the inmate population and another 32 cases among prison staff. He continues to argue that since Rovinski has cerebral palsy, he is at a higher risk.
Rovinski pleaded guilty to plotting to behead Geller and later denounced his allegiance with the terrorist group and cooperated with federal investigators.
Terror group ISIS has celebrated Black Lives Matter protests and riots taking place in multiple major cities, gleefully hoping that they will serve to “weaken” the west.
Numerous major American cities have been rocked by civil unrest over the past 10 days, with the riots claiming 17 lives. Other cities in Europe, Canada and Australia have also been hit with violent protests.
This has greatly pleased the Islamic State, which welcomed the riots in the latest edition of its al-Naba newspaper.
“ISIS has commented for the first time on the protests across the US over the death of George Floyd,” commented jihad specialist Mina Al-Lami. “In its paper al-Naba, IS said the civil unrest must not be seen as a problem for the US alone, and that other “infidel” countries should brace themselves for the repercussions.”
A Pakistani doctor and former Mayo Clinic researcher has been indicted on one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization after authorities say he told paid FBI informants that he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and wanted to carry out lone wolf attacks in the U.S.
The indictment against Muhammad Masood, 28, was announced Friday by U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald. Masood was initially charged by criminal complaint and has been in custody since his March 19 arrest at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Prosecutors say Masood was in the U.S. on a work visa. They allege in court documents that from January to March, Masood made several statements to paid informants — whom he believed were members of the Islamic State group — pledging his allegiance to the group and its leader. He also expressed a desire to travel to Syria to fight for IS and carry out lone wolf attacks in the U.S., they said.
Two French police officers were critically injured when a terror suspect crashed his car into them on Monday night, according to officials.
Sources told Le Parisien the officers had been enforcing lockdown orders in a neighborhood in Colombes, a city outside Paris, when a black BMW traveling at a high rate of speed slammed into police motorcycles and a patrol car at the scene.
One officer has been placed in an artificial coma and both are battling for their lives following the gruesome attack.
Youssef T., 29, reportedly told investigators he been inspired to attack police after watching videos about Gaza and Palestine, saying, “I did it for ISIS.”
Finland’s new millennial-female-run feminist government is already governing by Instagram poll.
From Reuters, “‘Seriously, Finland?’ Red-faced minister deletes Instagram poll“:
Finland’s finance minister deleted an Instagram post and issued an apology on Friday after criticism by a human rights group that embarrassed the new, women-led government days after it took office.
Katri Kulmuni, who became finance minister only this week, had posted an informal poll on whether the government should allow Finnish women with links to Islamic State to return from Syria, or just their children.
An alleged ISIS leader who is accused of beheading an imam and killing women and children was given refugee status after he entered Europe, it has been revealed.
27-year-old F Hassan joined ISIS in 2014 after deserting the Syrian army, according to prosecutors.
He then recruited other jihadists to go door to door and kill dozens of people near the city of Homs in 2015. The victims included six women and a child who were all knifed or gunned down.
Others were then rounded up and forced to gather at the town’s main square, where they witnessed Hassan and other militants carry out the brutal beheading of the local imam.
German police have thwarted a major attack planned by three suspects who support ISIS, according to reports.
Three men were arrested in Offenbach, suspected of plotting to kill “infidels” using explosives and weapons, according to Frankfurt prosecutor Nadja Niesen.
“The main suspect arrested on Tuesday is a 24-year-old German of Macedonian origin who wanted to manufacture explosives and tried to buy a weapon online,” Euronews reports. “His two suspected accomplices are Turkish nationals aged 22 and 21.”
“The suspects are believed to have told people they were IS supporters, Niesen said, adding she thought all three were known to police.”
French intelligence have thwarted a terror attack directed at Paris that they said would have been similar in size and scope to the 9/11 terror attacks in the US that knocked down the North and South towers and crashed a plane into the Pentagon, the French newspaper Le Parisien reports.
A suspect is currently being held in France on preliminary terrorism charges after apparently planning a 9/11-style attack that would have involved several plane hijackings and dozens – if not hundreds – of deaths.
French intelligence must be particularly vigilant since their city encompasses many of Europe’s most recognizable monuments and statues, as well as other major tourist attractions and monuments. In recent years, terror attacks within the city have claimed more than 200 lives.
Just this month, an IT worker who worked with the Paris Intelligence Squad, a special unit within the Paris police, was shot and killed after he attacked several colleagues with a knife at work. The 45-year-old attacker was widely considered to be a responsible and dedicated employee and, thanks to his IT skills, was seen as a critical member of the team, with close access to the bosses.
A jury in Brooklyn returned a verdict yesterday finding Dilkhayot Kasimov, 31, a citizen of Uzbekistan and resident of Brooklyn, New York, guilty of conspiracy and of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The verdict followed a one-week trial before United States District Judge William F. Kuntz, II. When sentenced, Kasimov faces up to 30 years’ imprisonment.
“Dilkhayot Kasimov worked to support ISIS, including by collecting and giving money to another individual to fund his travel to join the terrorist group. The jury has held Kasimov accountable for his crimes,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “The National Security Division is committed to help defend the nation against foreign terrorist groups and those who support them. I would like to thank all of the agents, analysts and prosecutors who are responsible for this case.”
“As found by the jury, Kasimov was part of a conspiracy in which he willingly and eagerly sought to help fund a foreign fighter’s travel and expenses in Syria to wage violent jihad,” stated United States Attorney Richard P. Donoghue for the Eastern District of New York. “The Department of Justice and our law enforcement partners will continue working relentlessly to protect our country from those who would provide support of any kind to terrorists seeking to harm the United States and its allies.”
