Bin laden is a large family, the construction company belongs to Osama's father....

Osama is disowned by his family and the saudi government, long before 9/11...

the construction company is well known in saudi...

its the largest and the osama thing didn't shake its position a lot..

they are not Funding this tower.. the tower belongs to Tallal bin waleed...

wikipedia:

The bin Laden family (Arabic: بن لادن‎, bin Lādin), also spelled bin Ladin, is a wealthy family intimately connected with the innermost circles of the Saudi royal family. The family was thrown into the media spotlight through the activities of one of its members, Osama bin Laden, the former head of Al Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on US government and commercial buildings. The financial interests of the bin Laden family are represented by the Saudi Binladin Group, a global oil and equity management conglomerate grossing $2 billion US annually, and the largest construction firm in the world, with offices in London, Dubai, and Geneva.

American and European intelligence officials estimate that all the relatives of the family may number as many as 600. In 1994, the bin Laden family disowned Osama and the Saudi government revoked his passport.[2] The Saudi government also stripped Osama bin Laden of his citizenship,[2] for publicly speaking out against them regarding their permitting U.S. troops to be based in Saudi Arabia in preparation for the 1991 Gulf War.

You can't always trust Wikipedia. Anyone can edit it if they have an account.

That's not entirely true. Bin Ladin have indeed invested in the project. Couple hundreds millions of us dollars actually.

We don't care even if Osama Bin Ladin will return to life and build the tower in his own hands

let's just stay on the topic

Actually, that is not entirely correct. Everyone can indeed edit a page in Wikipedia. But when you edit a page, you need to relate the text to a/some sources. If you don't do this, the moderators will delete it (there are quite a few, and they can se when pages have been created or editet). Also, they will block you from editing, after doing it. So you can indeed trust Wikipedia. But if you're unsure of some content, click at a one of the small blue numbers (looking something like this [1]) and read the source, or scroll to the very buttom of the page

For his sake I hope not. In Valhalla everyone feasts on pork and beer every night before killing each other in a fight - only to wake up the next day.

...My country's contribution to world philosophy

Good with pictures. I bet they'll end up going a lot higher than 1000 meters.

... But that's philosophy
