Osama bin Laden’s niece Noor bin Ladin offered public praises to Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz and Republican Senator Ron Johnson for their roles in defending the pro-Trump mob who rioted at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Swiss-born bin Ladin, 35, reached notoriety in the U.S. when in 2020 she did her first-ever interview with the New York Post in which she urged Americans to vote for Donald Trump as, in her opinion, only he could prevent another 9/11.
Talking to Steve Bannon on Real America’s Voice, bin Ladin called the rioters, some of whom were arrested for having stormed the U.S. Capitol and charged with crimes from assaulting and resisting an officer to civil disorder, “patriots that are being smeared and crushed by the media, by the Department of Justice (DoJ).”
She said that institutions, including the DoJ, have been weaponized to crush all form of dissents against what she called “the regime.”
After January 6, 2021, over 800 people were arrested in connection to the riots. According to bin Ladin, these “political prisoners” are being treated unjustly.
“The subsequent crackdown on the Jan. 6 protesters by U.S. security services, the physical abuse of arrested protesters, and the surveillance and intimidation of their political supporters throughout the United States, all constitute a massive violation of UN human rights norms,” she wrote in a document released on her website.
Bin Ladin said the statement is meant to call out what she called the “UN’s hypocrisy and the abuses of the U.S. government,” whom she said failed to defend its citizens.
“This is traitor level, in my opinion, that those who are supposed to represent the citizens are failing,” bin Ladin said.
She then went on to praise representatives Green of Georgia and Gaetz of Florida, as well as Republican Senator Ron Johnson for staying on the side of the Capitol rioters.
“We can be really grateful for representatives—you know, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gaetz and Ron Johnson amongst the handful who are defending and standing up and speaking about these political prisoners,” bin Ladin said.

Johnson has been repeatedly accused of spreading misinformation and false claims about the Capitol riots. He once said that footage from January 6 demonstrated “people weren’t rioting.”
In an interview with Fox News in June 2021, he said that it didn’t look like an armed insurrection as people were “staying within the rope lines in the Rotunda.”
Greene and Gaetz, who have both been accused of spreading conspiracy theories, also recently said that January 6 was not an insurrection.
Talking to Real America’s Voice one year after the violent riots, Gaetz said: “We’re ashamed of nothing. We’re proud of the work that we did on Jan. 6 to make legitimate arguments about election integrity.”
In the statement released on her website, bin Ladin says that “no consensus on the U.S. 2020 elections has yet emerged, either domestically or internationally among recognized election monitors.”
“We know on which side real Americans are,” she concluded.
Noor bin Ladin lives in Geneva, Switzerland. She’s the daughter of Swiss author Carmen Dufour and Yeslam bin Ladin, an older half-brother of Osama.
Back in 2020, she told the New York Post that she had been a Trump supporter “since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015.”
Two years ago, she believed Trump’s re-election to be “vital for the future of not only America, but Western civilization as a whole.”
In June 2021, footage of bin Ladin waving a “Trump won” flag on Lake Geneva in Switzerland was published by media around the world.
