Nigerian Terrorst Group Ansaru Kisses Mullah Omar and Zawahiri's Hand

I dunno, but sounds kind of like a bad gay man crush to me.

he leader of Ansaru, a Nigeria-based jihadist group that was added to the US' list of global terrorist organizations just days ago, recently called Ayman al-Zawahiri "our good emir" and Mullah Omar the "Emir of the Believers."

Abu Usama al Ansari, the leader of Ansaru, praised al Qaeda and the Taliban's top leaders in an Eid al Adha statement that was released on jihadist forums on Nov. 14. His statement was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

Al Ansari described the leader of al Qaeda as "our good emir, and dear sheikh, the doctor of the Ummah [Muslims community], the man of dignity and determination."

Additionally, al Ansari described Mullah Omar as the "Emir of the Believers" [the title is also known as "Emir al Mumineen," or the Commander of the Faithful]. Mullah Omar's title has religious significance among jihadists; the Commander of the Faithful is designated the leader of their Islamist caliphate. Osama bin Laden had sworn allegiance to Mullah Omar.

Like my Pakistani friend explains to me, al-Qaeda does not do Jihad "for the sake of Allah or Muslims, be because they want to be Kings, or Emirs as they are called in the Islamic world.

Its good to be king you know.
