One of those strange stories that won't go away!!
TERROR boss Osama Bin Laden's son wants to name his British child Elizabeth after the QUEEN, The Sun can reveal.
Omar Bin Laden, 29, and his wife Zaina, 54, are controversially trying to have a baby using a young surrogate mum from Bristol.
'Zaina' is a former parish councillor from Moulton in Cheshire and changed her name from Jane Felix Browne.
If the child is a boy they favour William - this time not after royalty but after Scottish independence fighter William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the film Braveheart.
The couple already have four children between them - Zaina's grown-up sons are 36, 31 and 30 while Omar has a seven-year-old son from his previous marriage.
This week the couple had a setback in their quest to start their own family after hearing their third attempt at IVF had failed - surrogate Louise Pollard, 24, was not pregnant as hoped.
But determined Zaina, a mum-of-three and grandmother-of-five, insists she will continue until the treatment works.
She says she has 35 frozen embryos - her eggs fertilised by Omar two years ago - waiting in a private clinic.
She told The Sun: "I will have a child. I'm the driving force behind this but Omar is right behind me. Whatever stress I'm going through, it's worth it.
"I'd love for him to come to the UK and visit Scotland, see the Lake District or the Yorkshire Moors."
Zaina married Saudi Arabian Omar, Osama's fourth son, in September 2006.
They met on a riding holiday in Egypt after the British housewife asked to take his picture.
Zaina, who has multiple sclerosis, found mum-of-one Louise on a surrogacy website.
Louise is a secretary who is single - and the youngest surrogate in the country. She has already had two surrogate children as well her own son Jaden, four.
Zaina said: "She's very brave and kind and is a fantastic mum to her own son. I have a lot of respect for her and really care for her."
Not surprisingly, the defiant grandmother has faced a barrage of criticism from around the world for trying to have a baby with the child of the man who masterminded the 9/11 atrocity.
Zaina, who says she was born a Muslim, insists: "As far as I'm concerned this is not Osama Bin Laden's grandchild. Omar hasn't seen his father for more than ten years, and left his father because he didn't want to be a soldier.
"You can't judge a man on what his father does. Omar is the complete opposite to him, interested in peace, not violence. I wanted to keep this a secret so Osama wouldn't even know he had a grandchild, but the news leaked out. We only know he's alive from seeing him on the TV."
Omar is in touch with his mother Najwa, Bin Laden's first wife, and most of his many brothers and sisters, who Zaina says have all been supportive of her decision.
Surrogacy is frowned upon in Islam but Zaina's surrogate has claimed that Omar is prepared go against his religion for the sake of their baby.
Omar's inability to get a visa - because of the potential public backlash - means the couple are frequently apart, though Zaina is planning a holiday for their upcoming fourth wedding anniversary. She added: "It's very strange that Omar can come and go in other countries in Europe and around the world, but not here.
"Omar could apply for a tourist visa any time but that has a limited stay.
"We don't want to live here permanently, but maybe during the summer. My children and grandchildren live in the UK and I want to be able to see them without leaving Omar behind.
"I haven't given up on it yet, I'm going to reapply."
Six-times married Zaina is sure she has found lasting happiness with former scrap metal contractor Omar, who is on a global publishing tour promoting his book and currently in Thailand.
As well as a home in the UK, the couple also hope to have a base in the USA, where the 9/11 attacks killed almost 3,000 people. Incredibly, the Bin Ladens are actually WELCOMED in America.
Zaina said: "The Americans have been amazing to us and Omar's book has sold well there, as well as other countries around the world."
She insists that, despite her age, doctors have told her the IVF procedure has the same chance of working for her as for anyone else.
The couple will pay Louise's expenses of £10,000 if she does fall pregnant - they have already spent £3,000 to cover Louise's costs so far and Zaina has spent £50,000 on her own treatment and expenses.
Zaina said: "Omar has written a book, Growing Up Bin Laden, explaining his life and promoting peace. A percentage of the profits are going to charity but we're also using the money to have a baby.
"My sons have had some ribbing at work about them having a baby brother or sister, and are a bit embarrassed to think of their mum having another child, but they are very supportive."
She is quick to defend her decision to have a child in her fifties. "What's age? Madonna is 50 and has adopted a child. Sarah Jessica Parker used a surrogate to have twins at 45.
"We have enough money for a child to live in luxury."
It's clear Zaina is desperate to be a mum again, and despite their failed third attempt at pregnancy she steadfastly refuses to give up.
"I'll keep going until my eggs run out and then I'll use donor eggs. I've even bought baby clothes.
"All I want is to have a baby with my husband, and I don't believe there's anything wrong with that."
The news should make Israeli growers happy, however. Kibbutz Tirat Tzvi, for example, in the northern Jordan Valley, sold close to 80,000 high-quality lulavim last year – and says it could easily have sold another 30,000 had it not been for Egypt’s flooding of the market. Even if Tirat Tzvi sells 110,000 this year, however, it will not be enough. It is estimated that Israelis buy over 500,000 lulavim each year – and close to 400,000 of them come from Egypt.The news should make Israeli growers happy, however.

It is estimated that Israelis buy over 500,000 lulavim each year – and close to 400,000 of them come from Egypt.Giving Jews plenty of time to prepare for the Sukkot holiday, three and a half months away, Egypt has announced that it will not export lulavs this year.
Egyptian Agriculture Minister says he will ban the export of lulavs – palm tree fronds – this year, leaving Jewish communities around the world and particularly in Israel without its major source of lulavim for the Sukkot holiday.
Moshe Zakkai of Tirat Tzvi told Israel National News that there is nothing to worry about. “We can, if given enough advance notice, harvest some 150,000 lulavim," he said, "and the other kibbutzim in the area can supply another 300,000. That should not be a problem. We just have to know in advance whether Egypt is serious, or if this is just a ploy to raise prices.” He said that his kibbutz has roughly 12,000 trees, but the amount of lulavim harvested from each tree ranges in number from four to 15 a year, depending on various factors.
Egypt’s Agriculture Minister Amin Abdeh claims that the reason for stopping the lulav exports is to protect his country’s 12 million palm trees, 500,000 of which are in northern Sinai. He said that people anxious to make money on the Jews’ Sukkot practices cut the lulavim in an unsupervised manner, thus causing irreparable harm to the trees.
In case you doubted that government bureaucrats are committed to controlling every aspect of our lives, please be aware that they’ve now categorized milk as a pollutant.
Northern Michigan’s Channel 9 has the details:
The Environmental Protection Agency intends to classify milk as a hazardous waste; in the same category as oil.
That means, farmers would have to come up with an oil spill prevention plan which could cost them thousands of dollars.
The Senate Agricultural Committee passed a resolution today urging the EPA to take back those regulations.
This new interpretation of the EPA’s Clean Water Act will require dairy farmers to develop oil spill prevention plans for their milk storage tanks.
As one farmer said in the video, “The majority of milk is water, in the high 80s percentile is water. The rest of it, three and one half percent, is solids of the fat and a portion of that is oil. And because of that small amount of oil in milk they’d like to relate it to motor oil or fuel oil and put it in the same category.”
To put this in terms a dairy farmer would appreciate, bureaucrats are good for only one thing: sucking from the government teat.
