Osama bin Laden's son may follow in his father's footsteps.

In a stunning report by the FOX News Channel, a UN panel anticipates that the next big battle for the Middle East will not come from a falling ISIS, but rather from the notorious ‘son of foe’ and villain Osama bin Laden.   

The 29-year-old Hamza bin Laden, son of Osama, has already been warned by his uncle, Hamza’s paternal uncle, to stray away from his father’s way of life:

“Then the next thing I knew, Hamza was saying ‘I’m going to avenge my father’… If Hamza was in front of me now I would tell him ‘God guide you. Think twice about what you are doing. Don’t retake the steps of your father. You are entering horrible parts of your soul.”

FOX reports that while there are still approximately 20,000-30,000 ISIS fighters left in the great fight, with leadership and a network that runs deep, Al Qaeda, which has been making moves quietly in the background, also maintains an extended network that functions globally.

Al Qaeda is demonstrating that they are stronger than ISIS in places like Somalia and Yemen. In Iran, their leadership is well kept and developing.

While there is little evidence to support that Al-Qaeda will become a global force to be reckoned with, the young bin Laden is widely speculated to become the successor of Al-Qaeda’s current leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, who claimed leadership after Osama’s death.

A charismatic Hamza, also claims that he wants to avenge his father’s death and though there has been an endeavour to persuade him from his father’s evil ways, his marriage with the daughter of the lead 9/11 hijacker is highly indicative of the direction he is taking in his life.
