African Taliban Massacre Christians Raze Church

al-Shabaab murdered 100 Christians in Kenya in the last three weeks. Including one 12 year old boy.

By BosNewsLife – “Several Christians were killed near Kenya’s violence-plagued coast and leaflets were distributed by suspected Islamic militants Wednesday, July 9, threatening to kill more Christians, residents said.

Among the dead Christians was Ken Mangara, a 12-year-old student at Kibiboni primary school, and Kenya Kazungu, in his 30s, who was found in a pool of blood with a Bible on his back, reported Morning Star News, a Christian news agency.

Of course the world is outraged that Israel defends itself. But Muslim murdering Christians in the name of Islam. Meh....

More Good News: Moderate Muslim Cleric Who Warned US Muslims About Somalia Shot Dead

Rathern than listen to the wisdom of Sheikh Mohammed Idris, the African Taliban, who thought he was the wrong kind of Muslim shot him down in the street on his way to prayers.

Sheikh Mohammed Idris, chairman of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya, was killed close to a mosque near his home by a group of gunmen.

Reports say he had previously been threatened by radical Muslim youths and had said he feared for his life.

He is the fourth prominent Muslim cleric to be shot dead in the city since 2012.

The others were accused of links to the al-Qaeda linked Somali Islamist group al-Shabab and their supporters accused the government of being behind their killings - charges the authorities denied.

...Mr Idris had apparently urged the police to deal with militant elements at his mosque, leading some to brand him a traitor.

Murdering a cleric? Strait to hell, no?

Groundbreaking al-Jazeera Report on Boko Haram

al Jazeera:

The Nigerian armed group Boko Haram has gained international notoriety after the kidnapping of more than 270 schoolgirls in northern Nigeria.

But the group has been a big problem for the Nigerian government for more than 12 years.

Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reports from Maiduguri, where the group originated.

Somali Muslimas Come Out in Favor of Kinder Gentler Female Genital Mutilation

Moderation in Somalia..

Somalia (AP) - The 30 Somali teenagers - both boys and girls - all agreed: Female genital mutilation is harmful and the practice should be abandoned. But what they really meant, they revealed moments later, is that girls should have their genitalia cut - just not sewn shut.

"It's our tradition and if the girls are not subjected to suna(cutting) she will not be accepted for marriage," said Asthma Ibrahim Jabril, 17.

The students, who are part of an afterschool club in Somaliland which the U.N. children's agency helps fund, discuss issues like child labor, early marriage, and female genital mutilation in a classroom with several large hearts scrawled along the walls.

Of course Islamists will tell you that female genital mutilation is not part of Islam, its not in the Koran.

Which is true, they call it Suna in Somalia, as in The Sunna, the traditions of Muhammad and his companions, as such it becomes an Islamic practice.

Still its not in the Koran which is how they sucker westerners.

Second Jihadi Work Accident in Somalia Kills 11

Apparently the planets are perfectly aligned in opposition to the Moon God? I man Allah.

First the Islamic State of Losers in Iraq lose 22 Mujahideen when someone dials the wrong number, then al-Shabaab follows with IED accident killing 11.

At least 11 Al-Shabaab fighters were killed and five others injured after a car bomb they were making accidentally went off in the central Somali town of Bulo-Burte, witnesses and officials said. The explosion was heard around Bulo Burte close to the main town of Beledewyne, which is controlled by government forces and African Union (AU) troops."The explosion was very huge and I saw people fleeing from the area. Eight dead men were taken out of the house where the vehicle was constructed. Five more severely wounded fighters were also taken away,"
I can't believe Shabaab is going to let ISIS get the better of them on this. Shabaab always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

129 Arrested at Mosque in Kenya

Wait, they preach violent jihad in a ... mosque? That's unpossible!

Police official Simon Simiyu told a Mombasa court on Monday the authorities plan to charge the 129 men with "being members of a terrorist group, namely al Shabaab".

It granted his request to keep them in detention for five days more for authorities to finish their investigations.

Police stormed the Mussa mosque in Majengo on Sunday after a tip that Muslim youths were being radicalized there by Islamists supporting al Shabaab, Somali militants allied with al Qaeda.

Security sources say the mosque has been at the heart of al Shabaab's attempts to radicalize disillusioned young Kenyan Muslims in recent years. Officers came under fire as they burst into the mosque, said police who seized laptops, DVDs and black banners emblazoned with jihadi slogans there.

And how did local Muslims react to the raid? They rioted, of course.

SuperDrone Was This Close to Killing al-Shabaab Leader Godane (update: Almost There)

Almost there.

Sources in Somalia say a U.S. drone strike on Sunday nearly hit the leader of militant group al-Shabab.

A militant source and sources close to the African Union mission in Somalia told VOA that Ahmed Abdi Godane was in the vicinity of the drone attack, which took place north of Barawe, in the Lower Shabelle region.

The militant source said Godane was alive, although it was not clear whether the al-Shabab leader was injured.

A senior aide of Godane's, Ahmed Abdulkadir -- known as "Iskudhuuq -- was killed along with his driver Sunday when their car was hit by a missile.

The sources in Somalia said Godane and Iskudhuuq may have had a meeting right before the attack, and that Godane was supposed to travel in the car that was targeted.

I can hold it? That's what I told Mrs. Howie back in the day before the so called shotgun incident.

Update: Almost there......

A U.S. military strike in southern Somalia Sunday was targeting Ahmed Abdi Godane, the leader of Al-Shabaab, the Somali-based group with ties to al Qaeda, according to three US officials.

U.S. officials are waiting for DNA evidence as well as intelligence gathered from local Somalis on the ground before they can confirm Godane was in the vehicle and killed by the drone strike.

Somali officials have said the man killed was Sahal Iskudhuq, an Al-Shabaab operative who was close to Godane and involved in planning attacks over the years.

There are also reports that after the strike Shabaab went on one of its purges, killing random people with phones accusing them of being spies. Ha!

Paranoid much?

al-Shabaab Issues Fatwa Against Smart Phones

Sabahi:

n a move that further prevents residents of Somalia's Lower Shabelle region from accessing news and information, al-Shabaab is intimidating people who use smartphones, saying the hi-tech mobile devices could be used for spying.

ANJEM-CHOUDARY-NORWAY.JPG

The militants began their intimidation campaign October 10th, shortly after US commandos stormed a beach house in Barawe, targeting al-Shabaab commander Abdulkadir Mohamed Abdulkadir, who goes by the alias Ikrima.

..."About four young men came into my pharmacy and saw my Samsung Galaxy phone while it was charging," Farah told Sabahi. "They ordered me to hand over the phone and immediately began searching my text messages, while asking me unnecessary questions about how I acquired the phone or if I send text messages abroad. I answered them with the answer they liked and told them I do not communicate with anyone outside the country."

The militants instructed Farah to never to use his phone again, threatening severe punishment if he is caught with it.

"When I asked them why I was being ordered to stop using it, they told me that smartphones are used to spy on Muslim people," he said. "I was really surprised."

Nahhh, surely not.

But But Discussion of Muslims Still Enslaving Blacks in Sudan is Racist Against Islam

And you can always excuse modern racist Islamic slavery going on today, with discussion of past slavery practiced by non-Muslims.

Huffpo:

I'm left puzzled by the actions of the United Nations and conferences like Durban. Why are the calls for help from the black Africans of Sudan not discussed? According to Deng the UN was well aware of the enslavement of South Sudanese by the Arabs. It took 16 years for UNICEF to acknowledge what was happening. They did nothing until pressured by the Jewish-led American Anti-Slavery Group. I find it ironic that it took a Jewish organization to get the voices of these people into the court of public opinion.

So why the attempt to muzzle the cries for help from Africa? According to Deng, bringing this issue to the UN would offend the OIC and the Arab league. Could that be true? And if so, how did we get to a place where the most vulnerable are kept out of the spotlight at the behest of the OIC and the Arab league?

We seem to be choosing to ignore the many who suffer at the hands of Arab/Muslims. Deng has shared his concerns about the West abandoning the "victims of Arab/Islamic apartheid." Is it fear of accusations of Islamophobia? Beyond the enslavement of black Africans in the 21st-century that is under reported, to the point of being ignored, Christians all over the Middle East and North Africa are under attack. Based on mainstream media reporting, one wouldn't know the seriousness of the situation.

After all, racists, who is carrying on a more authentic Hadith. Those who freed their slaves. Or the Islamic slave masters of Sudan who are still castrating their black slave boys and raping their black slave girls?

Dead Piece Of Shit Mocks Piece Of Shit, Or Something

The last gasp of an American traitor, I guess.

In both communications, al-Amriki, who is also known as Omar Hammami, focused on his virulent opposition to Godane's leadership.

"The cause of the problem is basically that [Godane] left the principles of our religion and he is trying to change al-Shabaab into an organisation that oppresses every single Muslim in an effort to make him the next Siad Barre of Somalia," al-Amriki told VOA when questioned about his differences with Godane, also known as Abu Zubayr.

Godane wants to be the "leader of Somalia regardless of whether he is ruled by sharia or by any other laws," al-Amriki said. "Basically he has lost the entire principles of what we began jihad for."

Even More Good News From Libya

How's that Libya thing working out for you Mr. President?

At least one soldier was killed in overnight fighting in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi, a security official said on Monday, in violence that has surged since last week's killing of an anti-Islamist political activist.

obamalibyarevolution.JPG

The clashes erupted in the western Gwesha district between an armed group and military special forces, hours after explosions that targeted buildings used by the judiciary.

"Clashes broke out between special forces and an unknown armed group," Mohammed al-Hijazy, a spokesman for Benghazi security operations, said by telephone. "At least one soldier was killed. The special forces have now retaken control."

Heh, unknown armed group that likes to do prison breaks. OMG! who could it be?
On Saturday, 1,117 inmates escaped during a riot in Kuafiya prison on the outskirts of Benghazi. Officials said on Sunday that about 100 prisoners had been recaptured.
I have a bad feeling about this.

Shabaab Splinters

Omar started a movement, the everyone knows Godane is a dick movement.

Mr Aweys left al-Shabab territory after factions within the al-Qaeda linked group clashed last week - the first deadly infighting since it launched an insurgency in 2006.

Elders from Mr Aweys' Haber Gedir clan, which is powerful in the Galmudug region, told the BBC they had been trying to mediate his surrender after his arrival in Adado.

The exact cause of the al-Shabab split is not known, but there has been a long-running internal power struggle between its leader Ahmed Abdi Godane and those seen as more moderate who oppose links with al-Qaeda, analysts say.

There are conflicting reports about the fate of the second-in-command - Ibrahim Afghan, the al-Shabab founder - following last week's fighting. Initially, sources told the BBC he had been captured and was in al-Shabab detention; subsequent reports in local media say he has been executed.

The first installment covers a topic I don’t know much about – Boko Haram in Nigeria. Omar Mahmood does an excellent job of concisely putting some needed details and perspective on Boko Haram, its origins, the underlying causes for its ascension and identifies some questions we might examine in the coming months. Additionally, Omar addresses some of the questions surrounding the group’s links to al Qaeda and its newest manifestation Ansaru.

Al Shabaab via Twitter [@HSMPress1] Claims To Have Classified Docs From The Somali President's Office

Their "Press Release" via TwitLonger:

PRESS RELEASE: Classified documents retrieved from the office of the Somali president.

Mogadishu (03/04/2013). In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen intelligence teams have retrieved some very valuable documents from the office of the apostate Somali president inside the Presidential Palace in Mogadishu. The documents contain highly confidential information, including detailed intelligence reports, internal memos, planned operational details and other classified material.

Some of the documents contain letters received from an influential Arab regime instructing the apostate president to name certain individuals for specific posts within his government so as to facilitate better cooperation and sharing of intelligence between the two countries.

We will publish some of the documents on Twitter in the coming hours and the rest will be published when deemed appropriate Insha-Allaah.

Nigerian Islamists Behead "Informant"

I haven't seen this video, but do I really need to see it to understand the kind of animals we're dealing with here?

A man accused of being an informant has been beheaded by Islamist group Boko Haram. The incident was recorded in a video obtained Tuesday in which the victim accused of being an informant appears to be beheaded on camera.
And, oddly enough, it seems like YouTube is the protagonist of the story:
The clip has been distributed to Nigerian journalists in the country's north in recent days through intermediaries....

Sources familiar with Boko Haram say it was handed out in this manner because Nigerian authorities have been blocking the group's videos from being uploaded to YouTube.

On second thought, you really do need to see the video to understand the brutality of these people. Words alone cannot describe the visceral reaction any moral being has when witnessing someone being murdered. I can't explain why that it is, but it's true.

Back That Ass Up

NY Daily News

Omar Hammami, one of the most notorious Americans to join an Al Qaeda affiliate, is already on the FBI’s most-wanted terrorist list. Now, he’s accused of a different sort of crime — plagiarizing his rap lyrics.

Hammami, who now goes by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki (The American), released a series of rap songs over the past few years that are now being attributed to another American-born Islamic extremist. And the accusations are apparently coming from his former best buds at Al Shabab, the terrorist organization that helped launch Hammami to international fame.

In a document acquired by Wired.com, an alleged former colleague named Abu Hamza Al-Muhajir, calls Abu Mansour out on his “Nasheeds,” or Islamic vocal music.

“The Jihadi rap Nasheeds, ‘send me a cruise’ and ‘make Jihad with me’, that are often erroneously attributed to Abu Mansour are the work of another Muhajir — another American Mujahid,” Al-Muhajir claims in the 17-page PDF. “But, of course, Abu Mansour would never say otherwise since the Nasheeds ‘perfect’ and complement his projected self-image.”

Kenya: Family Of Hostages Held By Al Shabaab Crying For Help

Sadly, unless they are rescued, they most likely will be killed. The savages of the African Taliban enjoy killing innocents:

Nairobi — Twenty-six-year-old Komora Yesse is an emotionally wrecked man.

His brother's heart-wrenching fate is due to be sealed within the next 20 something hours, in the war-torn Somalia.

So as the clock slowly ticks towards midnight Thursday, he will have to keep checking social networks to know whether or not the Al Shabaab terror group makes good its threat to execute his elder brother, Edward Mule and registration clerk Fredrick Irungu.

"It is very sad. It is hard on my mother because of the pain of losing a child. It is hard on my sister, his wife, my father and me. We just want to talk to him again. All I think of is Mule," says Yesse.[More...]

Al Shabaab's Twitter account was suspended shortly after they posted images of a French commando who was killed in a failed attempt to rescue hostage Denis Allex. Also, they linked to a download for the below video of the Kenyan hostages. They also tweeted a ultimatum:

twitter_hsmpress_kenyanprisoners_zpse9e064d0 photo twitter_hsmpress_kenyanprisoners_zpse9e064d0-1_zpsd820f11d.jpg

They have since opened a new Twitter account - @HSMPRESS1. I don't see anything on it regarding these hostages and most likely they are careful not to do so. There is also another Twitter account here, but most likely a supporter and not a spokesperson for al-Shabaab.

Tomorrow will tell the tale, sigh. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the hostages.

Omar Hamammi is so lonely, he spends most if his time hanging with J.M. Berger of Intelwire on twitter. We're not sure if that says anything about Berger's fascination with Godzilla but here.

AFP: Once his reputation was of a feared fighter, an American-born extremist who left small town Alabama to wage war alongside Al-Qaeda-linked Somali Islamists and who called on other foreigners to join. Today, Omar Hamami -- better known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki or "the American" -- has split from the insurgents, who want to kill him. He cuts a forlorn figure: homesick, stuck somewhere in Somalia, and telling anyone who will listen about his apparently doomed career path.
Doomed! Doomed I say!

I suppose we should start calling Twitter JihadTweet or JihadTwitter or TwitterJihad, much like we call Google's YouTube JihadTube.

Update: Kenya officials respond to the above threat We will not bargain with al-Shabaab

* Says government "cannot negotiate with terrorists"
* Nairobi says hostages are non-combatants, not POWs
"not POW's", exactly.

Forward: I didn't know the French military knew how to go in that direction:

French troops advance on Islamist rebels in northern Mali

French troops in armored vehicles and machine gun-mounted pickups moved northward Wednesday to bolster Malian army units fighting Islamist guerrillas entrenched in the beleaguered town of Diably.

The troop movements, recorded by journalists on the scene, set the stage for what seemed likely to be French troops’ first major engagement on the ground since President Francois Hollande ordered a major military intervention in Mali six days ago. Some reports said French special forces advisers were already in the city battling alongside the Malian soldiers.

Al Shabaab 'Claims' They Killed Hostage Dennis Allex After French Commandos Failed Rescue Attempt

France has reported two commandos and the hostage, Dennis Allex, were killed during the rescue attempt. Not wanting to take credit for killing the hostage during the rescue, al-Shabaab is now claiming they killed Alexx after and are blaming the French for his death.

The African Taliban's Twitter account put out the following 'press release' in a "'TwitLonger'. Twitter has become al-Shabaab's only means of communicating. You could say the Jawa Report is mainly responsible for that.

Anyway, here is part of the press release minus the Allah this and Allah that

The Verdict:

The death of the two French soldiers pales into insignificance besides the dozens of Muslim civilians senselessly killed by the French forces during the operation. Avenging the deaths of these civilians and taking into consideration France’s increasing persecution of Muslims around the world, its oppressive anti-Islam policies at home, French military operations in the war against Islamic Shari’ah in Afghanistan and, most recently, in Mali, and its continued economic, political and military assistance towards the African invaders in Muslim lands, Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen has reached a unanimous decision to execute the French intelligence officer, Dennis Allex .

With the rescue attempt, France has voluntarily signed Allex’s death warrant. Following the failed operation, Le Drian, aware that execution is the natural corollary of treachery, announced that the punishment had already been meted out, despite the fact that Allex was at the time alive and safe in another safe house.

Now read what they said the French commandos did to 'innocents'
Saturday’s botched rescue operation was an abysmal failure; both in terms of intelligence and the ground operation. The French forces, driven by false intelligence reports from the ground, landed a few kilometers away from the town of Bulo-Marer and headed towards their designated location, killing all the villagers that crossed their path. The villagers, including an elderly woman, were later found some with their throats slit and others with bullets riddle all over their bodies. But before the French forces could reach their destination, the Mujahideen in Bulo-Marer were alerted by HSM intelligence teams who had information of the French movements.
Throats slit? Not hardly.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Dennis Allex. Also, the commandos killed in the operation. One such commando has his images on the African Taliban's Twitter account:

https://twitter.com/HSMPress/status/290802076886368256
https://twitter.com/HSMPress/status/290804482344898560
https://twitter.com/HSMPress/status/290812010076188672

Twitter has ignored me and others flagging the images and has allowed the images to stay. Although, the African Taliban did notice my call for flagging the images:

twitter_alshabaab_images_frenchcommando_zpse06b310d

Twitter, like Facebook and JihadTube, has no problem providing services to terror groups. They, the terror groups, are quite happy now on Twitter knowing they have free reign to spread their propaganda.

France out of Mali! No Blood for Oil!

Yeah, actually I'm all for France's war of choice in Mali. They are fighting Taliban-like, al-Qaeda sympathizing elements in the country. So, killing as many of them as possible is a good thing.

But don't you find it, I don't know, ironical that when France intervenes in the internal affairs of a country that none of the usual suspects come out and protest?
Wall Street Journal
:

On Friday, France sent fighter jets and special forces across the vast desert north of Mali, reversing an eight-month-long stalemate between the former French colony and the fundamentalist rebels who overran Mali's north last year.

French forces had focused on regaining control of Konna, which had fallen into rebel hands last week. French and Malian officials have described this small town in central Mali as a strategic gateway for a possible rebel attack on Bamako.

Over the weekend, fighter jets from France attacked targets deep in northern territories controlled by Islamist groups, notably the large city of Gao near the front. The French also targeted sites along the border with Mauritania, as well as Kidal, a remote trading post near Algeria.

Again, I'm all for this. It's better in my book to let other people put their lives at risk for goals that benefit us.

The real question, though, is whether the French tactics will work? Whether limited French airstrikes will be enough?

This is France.

Somalia: French Soldier Killed In Failed Hostage Rescue

al-Sabaab released this video of Denis Allex in October of last year

The African Taliban, have held Allex since 2009

A French soldier was killed and another was captured in a failed French commando raid on Saturday to rescue French hostage Denis Allex, who is also believed to have died in the operation, according to the French Defence Ministry.

The Islamist captors of a French military agent killed him during a French commando raid in Somalia, the French Defence Ministry said Saturday. One French soldier and 17 Islamists were also killed in the fighting.

Gen. Martin Klotz, a spokesman for the ministry, declined to provide details of the overnight operation aimed at rescuing secret service agent Denis Allex - the code-name for the man who was kidnapped by the militant Islamist group al-Shabaab in Mogadishu, the capital, in 2009.

However, the African Taliban have denied they killed him.
His Somali captors, however, claim they are holding Allex alive and said they had a new captive, a French commando wounded in the fighting.

"(Denis) Allex still remains safe and far from the location of the battle," al-Shabaab said in a news release. "As a response to this botched rescue operation by the French forces, (the Shabaab) assures the French people that it will give its final verdict regarding the fate of Denis Allex within two days."

If he is alive, the African Taliban will most likely release a video, otherwise he is most likely dead. As to the French soldier held captive now, if true, it remains to be seen how long they will keep him alive.

After his novel yesterday it appears he wants one to feel sorry for him.

Tough shit bitch.

BTW, dead man walking comment comes from someone I mistook for someone else. Don't know 'em.

Will Goregazeera Show Interviews With Al-Shabaab Spokesmen?

Note the Al Jazeera microphone, the new face of Al Gore's former Current TV. He sold it to a network full of terrorist sympathizers.

"Sheikh" Ali Mahamoud Rage aka Ali Dheere

They will most likely only show interviews like the above in their Arabic language channel or something.

You may remember, our very own American traitor Omar Hammimi aka Abu Mansoor al-Amiriki once was in with the above 'sheikh'. He is either dead or in hiding now. Hopefully dead.

His twitter feed has been very busy lately though.

Update: EROWMER FTW!

Ali Dheere, and the other buy[guy] back a couple weeks was named Farmall al Baler or something? Do these guys think naming themselves after farm equipment makes them appear manly?

al-Shabaab Releases Statement on Abu Mansur Al-Amriki (Bumped Amriki Alive?!?!)

The terrorist group released a full translation in English via its HMS Press Office here on Twitlonger.

The series of video releases - one in March when the Kuffar were preparing to invade the Islamic Administrations in Lower Shabeelle region and another in October just after the Kenyans had invaded the port city of Kismayo, in Lower Jubba region - were intended to serve a broader purpose. Hence, the timing of the releases and the convergence of the entire East African nations upon the Mujahideen were not entirely coincidental occurrences but a calculated attempt to draw attention to the alleged voices of dissent within the ranks of the Mujahideen at a time when they were most likely to be under pressure from their enemies so as to cultivate the destructive seeds of disunity. But Allah is the best disposer of all affairs; the seeds failed to germinate ‘and the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it.’

The gist of it being that Omar Hammami is a traitor, a spy or both. Sewing "fitna" or conflict among the Mujahideen. That despite efforts to "counsel" Omar that he has refused.

The thought crimes listed in the statement would carry a penalty of death under the hard line Islamist interpretation of Sharia used by al-Shabaab. although it does not specify any punishment nor read very harshly like your typical Sharia death warrant.

We've no word on Hammami's fate.

Update by Howie 12/19/2012: It looks like Omar, wherever he is, is still kicking or at least he was 8 hours ago.

Little twitter spat there. I've that and one other claim he's alive. The twitter feed makes the claim that Shabaab will kill Omar and blame it on the US and Zionist forces in a false flag operation.

Well the narrative seems right anyway.

(more below the fold)

The videos mentioned are here and here. Here is a Twitter feed known to be associated with Hammami as well as his Youtube Channel. His last known activity was Dec 10th on Twitter but its possible that another person other than Omar Hammami has access to that feed.

Al Shabaab 'Warns' Dutch Parliament Over Blasphemy

Yawn

Al-Shabaab plans to strike the Dutch Parliament, after the country’s legislators abolished blasphemy.

Announcing the decision last Friday, Sheikh Fuád Mohamed Khalaf Shongole, the Chief propagandist of the radical Islamist group in Somalia, warned that the consequences of the legislator’s decision will be major.

He was reacting to a recent decision by the Dutch Parliament that insulting God will no longer be a crime in the Netherlands, revoking a decades-old blasphemy law from the statute books.

“Nobody can portray the figure of Allah (God),” said Sheikh Shongole through the media supporting his movement. “We are going to respond to such decision.”

“Nobody can portray the figure of Allah (God)”? Really?
How about this, bitches:

Allah:

And Mohammed

And Mohammed

Fatwa?

UK Investigating Charity Linked to Nigerian al Qaeda Supporters

Authorities in the UK have confirmed that they are investigating a charity said to have ties to the group. The charity has denied that it is secretly funding Boko Haram:

The UK Charity Commission (CC) has confirmed, for the first time, that it is talking to different departments, regarding allegations that Al Muntada Al Islami Trust is providing financial support to the Boko Haram group.

“We confirm we have been contacted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Metropolitan Police (MP) in relation to this matter,” the CC spokesperson told Ahram Online.

Over the weekend the leader of Boko Haram made a video tape clarifying that they do, in fact, support al Qaeda:
The emir of Boko Haram, the Nigerian terror group that has ties to al Qaeda, has praised the global jihadist organization, and said he and his fighters support jihad in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Chechnya, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia, Algeria, Libya, and Mali.

The attacker targeted St Polycarp's church on Juja Road.

A police spokesman said they suspected sympathisers of Somalia's al-Shabab Islamist militants were to blame

Amazing how many on Twitter are a proud savage, I wonder if they will agree with this?

Non-Sarcastic Good News: Libyans Storm al Qaeda Stronghold

When Muslim mobs go terribly right:

Hundreds of protesters angry over last week's killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya stormed the compound of the Islamic extremist militia suspected in the attack, evicting militiamen and setting fire to their building Friday.

In an unprecedented show of public anger at Libya's rampant militias, the crowd overwhelmed the compound of the Ansar Al-Shariah Brigade in the center of the eastern city of Benghazi.

I hope we see more of this kind of thing.

Next:

A Kenyan radical Islamist cleric has been killed in a drive-by shooting in the city of Mombasa.

Aboud Rogo Mohammed was on US and UN sanction lists for allegedly supporting Somalia's al-Shabab militants.

According to a UN report, he had helped al-Shabab obtain funding and new recruits. He was also facing charges of plotting attacks in Mombasa.

Send snarky condolences and stuff to @MYC_Press. Rogo was their "main ideological leader". They have me blocked, so.

@HSMPress would like to hear from you also, honest.

Mogadishu: Al Shabaab Kills Comedian Who Made Fun Of Them

Egypt Independent

Gunmen shot dead a well-known comedian known for poking fun at Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabab insurgents in the Somali capital Mogadishu, officials and colleagues said Wednesday.

Abdi Jeylani Malaq Marshale, in his late thirties or early forties, was killed late Tuesday, minutes after leaving Kulmiye radio station, where he worked as drama producer and performer.

"Two men shot and seriously injured Marshale... the comedian was later pronounced dead," said police lieutenant Mohamed Gaal, adding that "unfortunately the assailants escaped."

If you are on Twitter, please make fun of al-Shabaab here and here and here.

That.is.all.
