The terrorist Osama bin Laden would have been brainwashed when he joined the university, changing his behavior. The statement was made by his mother, Alia Ghanem in an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian , on Friday (3). According to Ghanem, Osama was a “good child.”

The mother gave the interview with bin Laden’s two brothers – Ahmad and Hassan, and their second husband, Mohammed al-Attas, who raised him since he was 3 years old.

According to Ghanem, who lives in Saudi Arabia, Osama was shy but became a strong figure while studying economics at King Abdulaziz University in the Saudi city of Jeddah. “The people at the university have changed it. He became a different man, “he said. Osama met Abdullah Azzam – a member of the radical Muslim Brotherhood group – at the university. He eventually became his spiritual advisor.

The terrorist Osama bin Laden would have suffered a “brainwashing” according to his mother

“He was a very good kid until he met some people who practically brainwashed him when he was in his early 20s. You can call it worship. I always told him to stay away from them, and he would never admit to me what he was doing because he loved me so much, “Ghanem said.

Realizing what had happened, the family would have been “extremely upset.” “I did not want any of this to happen. Why would he throw it away like that? “Her mother asked.

During the interview, Ahmad (her other son) told her that she denied that her son had any guilt in the September 11 attacks, when two hijacked passenger planes overturned the World’s Twin Towers Trade Center in New York, killing about 3,000 people.

“She loved him very much and refuses to blame him. Instead, she blames those around her. She only knows the side of the good boy, the side we all saw. She never got to know the jihadist side, “Ahmad said, continuing:” From the youngest to the eldest, we are all ashamed of him. “
