Zhudi Jasser on the announced merger of Al Qaeda, the Islamic State and the Muslim Brotherhood

Zhudi is spot on here if you make a couple of minor changes. If he replaces the word, ‘radical’ with the word ‘Kinetic’ and exchanges the word ‘extremist’ with, ‘orthodox’ or ‘religious’ then he is actually great on this video linked here.

The main thing is, they distorted the timeline here. The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of the other two. There is no merger, just a public admission that all these groups are identical but one was a beard for the other.

Qaeda chief warns attacks on US in ‘everyone’s reach’

France24

June 3 2013

AFP – Al-Qaeda’s military chief in Yemen warned Americans in an audio message posted online Sunday that the Boston bombings revealed a fragile security as he urged Muslims to defend their religion.

Qassim al-Rimi, the military chief of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, said making bombs such as the ones used in the twin blasts in Boston in April, is within “everyone’s reach”.

“The Boston events… and the poisoned letters (sent to the White House), regardless of who is behind them, show that your security is no longer under control, and that attacks on you have taken off and cannot be stopped,” he said, in the message entitled: “A letter to the American people.”

“Every day you will be hit by the unexpected and your leaders will not be able to defend you,” warned the man whose organisation is considered by Washington the world’s most dangerous Al-Qaeda branch.

Al Qaeda releases guide on how to torch cars and make bombs as it names 11 public figures it wants ‘dead or alive’ in latest edition of its glossy magazine

Al Qaada’s newest edition of its terror mag also has a list of people it wants to see muslims murder for whatever reasons. The list is irrational and seems to be based more on how much attention the work got rather than who the people are or what they think and do.

As a consequence, I wasn’t planning to post anything on it and encourage any Muslim, would-be-assassins on who to go after. Seems counterproductive to me to assist them. But the Daily Mail has done this article on another component of this issue and Diana West has done a good article on the ‘hit list’ so I may as well post them at least.

No direct link to Inspire though. If someone wants to read it I’m sure they can find it.

  • Most active branch publishes detailed guide on militant websites
  • It lists 11 public figures ‘wanted dead or alive for crimes against Islam’
  • Along with tips on terrorism, it also warns France to pull back from Mali

Al Qaeda has released the latest edition of its English-language propaganda magazine advising would-be militants on how to torch parked cars and cause traffic accidents.

The Islamist movement’s most active branch Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, published the tenth edition of its glossy quarterly called Inspire on militant websites this month.

Along with tips on terrorism, it also warns France to pull back from Mali and lists 11 public figures in the West, including author Salman Rushdie, who it says are ‘wanted dead or alive for crimes against Islam’ and carries articles commemorating ‘martyrs’ who have died for its cause.

AQAP, based in the impoverished, lawless state of Yemen, has previously plotted to bring down international airliners.

It is seen by Western governments as a danger to oil-producing Gulf states and major crude shipment routes.

Two Qatari aircrafts come to the rescue of the Jihadists in Mali

Original translation by Oz-Rita

H/T Magic Martin

From This Site:

We have received information of a landing of two Qatar aircrafts in the north of Mali “to transport Jihadists and to save them from being arrested or killed by the French and Malian armies.”

This operation, which is starting to be known in informed circles, would explain partially why the bosses of AlQueda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and of the Movement for unity and Jihad in West Africa (Mujao) have still not been arrested, several weeks after the start of the French military offensive and the capture of several Mali towns, among them Kidal, Timbuktu, Monti and Gao.

“This information has only recently started to circulate”, said Eric Denece, director of the French centre for research in information (CF2R).

Let us remind you that Qatar who has, until now, not denied this information, spoke out against the French military intervention in Mali, after having proposed to facilitate the mediation with the armed jihadists in the north of the country.

We also remind you that the presence of four Qatari humanitarians had been detected in the North of Mali. This has been confirmed (to us) by Mickael Sibdiga, leader of the Red Cross in Kidal.

These four Qatari “humanitarians”, according to a local Malien source, had arrived unofficially, i.e. without informing the international committee of the Red Cross. “They said that they had come to evaluate the needs of the population”, Mickael Sibdiga added.

The Qatar is suspected to support and to finance the Jihadists who were striking (hitting) in the North of Mali and in other regions of the world.

This is quite good. They keep emphasizing that all people here are Muslims but many or most cannot tolerate the Al Queda style rule they are imposing everywhere they go. As the African Muslims most likely do not read Arabic and have no idea what is in the Koran at all, their being Muslim is likely more a vestigial cultural remnant more than an actual observed religion. Also I highly doubt the claim that Mali is the “most culturally diverse place on earth”.

The Islamic version of Santaria is interesting and not surprising to anyone familiar with black culture in South America and parts of the US south. Good luck on the magic though.

  •  PARIS/BAMAKO (Reuters) – Malian government troops drove back Islamist rebels from a strategic central town after France intervened on Friday with air strikes to halt advances by the militants controlling the country’s desert north.

Western governments, particularly former colonial power France, had voiced alarm after the al Qaeda-linked rebel alliance captured the town of Konna on Thursday, a gateway towards the capital Bamako 600 km (375 miles) south.

President Francois Hollande said France would not stand by to watch the rebels push southward. Paris has repeatedly warned that the Islamists’ seizure of the country’s north in April gave them a base to attack neighboring African countries and Europe.

Al-Qaida says US consulate attack ‘revenge’

Telegraph:

     AL-Qaeda said the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya was in revenge for the killing of the network’s number two Sheikh Abu Yahya al-Libi, SITE Intelligence Group reported.

“The killing of Sheikh Abu Yahya only increased the enthusiasm and determination of the sons of (Libyan independence hero) Omar al-Mokhtar to take revenge upon those who attack our Prophet,” said al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula said in a statement, quoted by the US-based monitoring group.

Al-Qaida’s Yemen-based offshoot did not claim direct responsibility for Tuesday’s attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans.

Al Queda desecrate shrines to Islamic “saints”

Over the past few days many people have sent me various links to a story about the destruction of shrines to Islamic “saints” in North Africa. I didn’t bother with the story even though the Muslim war on history is of particular interest to me. The fact that Muslims, once a piece of land is conquered for Islam, will then work 3 shifts at the total destruction of artifacts and any evidence of pre-Islamic control of the area. A thing which, itself shows that Muslims and Islam does not care about the facts but abut utter and complete totalitarian control. Another large data point in the notion that Islam is not a religion at all, but a totalitarian political system, as so many (especially Geert Wilders) has said for so long.

I didn’t bother with it because Muslims destroying Islamic shrines seems perfectly OK with me. But it shouldn’t have. First of all, a good Muslim is a terrifying thing. The 911 hijackers were among the best of Muslims based on all Islamic scripture. So a Muslim ‘Saint’ must be one black hearted son-of-a-bitch.

However history is history and the destruction of it is a crime against humanity whether we like the story or we do not. Much like if Austrians destroyed all evidence of the Nazi death camps and then proceeded to say they never existed. We cannot permit it.

So in that spirit I must agree with the UNESCO on this one.

Islamists damage historic mosques

Al-Qaeda lays mines around city of Gao

By Serge Daniel, Agence France-Presse July 3, 2012
Islamist rebels smashed the entrance of a 15th-century Timbuktu mosque on Monday, while their al-Qaeda allies in northern Mali cut off the key city of Gao by planting landmines all around it.

In Timbuktu, rebels from the al-Qaeda-allied Ansar Dine (Defenders of Faith) group continued their destruction of the city’s cultural treasures, defying a chorus of inter-national condemnation.

Some residents sobbed as the Islamists broke down the “sacred door” of one of Timbuktu’s three ancient mosques, Sidi Yahya – closed for centuries due to local beliefs that to open it would bring misfortune.

Mauritania, Mali and Niger have seen a steady escalation of al-Qaeda activity targeting Western aid workers and experts. Somalia, to their east, has disintegrated in the face of Islamist assault. In Yemen, across the Red Sea from Somalia, security forces have been waging a losing battle against resurgent jihadist armies that have claimed the lives of dozens of troops.

Boko Haram leaders are designated as terrorists by US

BBC:

21 June 2012 Last updated at 12:55 ET

Abubakar Shekau Abubakar Shekau is the leader of Boko Haram

Three leaders of Nigeria’s Boko Haram Islamist group have been designated as terrorists by the US state department.

Abubakar Shekau leads the militant group, while Abubakar Adam Kambar and Khalid el Barnawi are thought to have ties with a branch of al-Qaeda.

The move means any assets belonging to the men in the US will be frozen, and contact with US citizens banned.

Boko Haram has said it carried out a number of attacks against churches and other establishments since 2009.

More than 640 people have died in the country so far in 2012 in attacks blamed on the group.

The BBC’s Kim Ghattas, in Washington, said the move was likely to have little effect on the three men.

She said it was more of an attempt to help stop sectarian violence in the country.

Boko Haram carried out a series of attacks against churches on Sunday, sparking a wave of sectarian reprisals.

Gun battles also broke out in Damaturu after attacks by the group against security forces.

by Hermes with thanks

Security services and experts on the issue warn that the presence of salafism in Spain continues to grow. 8 years after the 11-M terrorist attacks, the salafist groups are more and more estabished in the country. The majority of the perpetrators of this terrorist attack belonged to the salafist movement “Jihadia”

It’s the most conservative branch of Islam, and gathers various terrorist groups from Morocco which use violence and terror in order to impose Sharia law. The salafists follow the guidelines of Al-Qaeda and are settled in the region of the Maghreb and Spain. 8 years after the 11-m terrorist attack, police experts warn that their presence in Spain continues to grow.

There’s police documentary proof that in the last 12 months the presence of jihadi salafists has increased in Catalonia, Tarragona, La Rioja, Aragón, Navarra and País Vasco. These are police reports from the end of the last year which show that the leaders are moroccans living in Tarragona and Gerona with connections to terrorist units in the North of Morocco and several places in Europa. The majority have a permanent residence in the country and are granted the right to work till 2014. In Catalonia, Navarra and Vizcaya, the national security forces have detected the presence inside the muslim community of an important active group of followers linked to, and financed by, Salafia Jihadia. According to this police reports, the tactics the salafists used was to join muslim cultural associations and gain control over mosques already active. Continue Reading →
