Retirement Ease, Courtesy of Bin Laden

Hold on: that’s Tariq bin Laden, Osama’s older brother. The French newsmagazine Le Figaro reports that that Bin Laden intends to invest 50 billion dollars in a “tourist village” on the Algerian coast designed to attract European retirees to go there to spend some time on the Mediterranean Sea, in the Mediterranean sun. You’ll surely recall how the Bin Laden family was, and continues to be, one of the richest families in Saudi Arabia, having made their fortune mainly in construction. Yes, it will be a luxury project, with private clubs and of course medical installations of high standard. The settlement, called “Nour” (“light” in Arabic) will cover an extensive 1,500 square kilometers.
