al-Kabaabs Roasting On An Open Fire

Superdrone nipping from a flask.

Though its been said many times, many waaaaayyyyysss!

Merry Christmas, The Force be with youuuuuuu!

The U.S. military says it has killed eight members of the al-Shabab extremist group with an airstrike south of Somalia’s capital.

The U.S. Africa Command statement says the airstrike occurred on Saturday near Gandarshe, a coastal community. The statement says no civilians were involved.

The U.S. military has carried out at least 40 airstrikes this year against the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab, Africa’s most active Islamic extremist group. It controls parts of rural southern and central Somalia and continues to stage deadly attacks in the capital, Mogadishu, and other cities.

African Taliban Complains About Defectors Speaking to Press

Shabaab are crooks and liars, Omar Hammami found out. Now others are leaving and telling the truth about Shabaab. That they are not in it for Islam nor Sharia nor the welfare of Somali Muslims, they are in it to be the premier scumbags and reap the spoils they steal from Muslims and others.

Pajama's Media:

Al-Shabaab issued a lengthy slam against a report that the group decried as fake news, laying out a Sharia case against using anonymous sourcing and trying to shore up their defense with a list of terror leaders who think they're great.

The terror group is taking issue with "Why My Wife and I Left Shabab in Somalia," a two-part Skype interview featuring two Europeans, unnamed and with their faces covered and voices altered, who described life with the terror group and their imprisonment upon attempting to flee Al-Shabaab. The interviews were posted by New Yorker Bilal Abdul Kareem, who runs a video channel called On the Ground News.

Shabaab expresses "dismay" that the lengthy interviews were "nothing more than unsubstantiated allegations and sweeping statements that sought to delegitimize the Mujahideen of East Africa by portraying them as an oppressive band of crooks and criminals," and accused "brother Bilal" of deviation from "the expected journalistic integrity and Islamic etiquettes required from a Muslim reporter."

Shabbab doesn't like these videos? Say no more.

Jawa Reading List: Report on African Taliban Media Network

Here is a report on al-Shabaab's media wing. You know, two guys with a go-pro who live in a stick hut making snuff films.

You know, the ultimate Islamic Dream.

Since emerging in 2007 after the overthrow of the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) umbrella in the wake of the December 2006 Ethiopian invasion and occupation of parts of Somalia, al-Shabab has established itself as one of the relatively few jihadi organizations to succeed in the capture, control, and governance of territory for a significant period of time. When the self-declared Islamic State was masquerading as a «paper state» in 2008 and 2009, Al-Shabab’s leadership was busy constructing a bureaucracy of power, divided into regional and local nodes of authority, designed to implement and maintain insurgent rule over rapidly expanding territories.

Beginning in 2007 and 2008, the group slowly but steadily built up its media capabilities through the production of propaganda films, many of them aimed at recruiting new fighters and particularly foreign fighters from outside of Somalia. By 2009, the group had dramatically refined its media campaign and the quality of its audio-visual production, enabling its media apparatus to produce increasingly polished flms alongside written, audio/radio, and photographic releases. These releases were either directly produced by Al-Shabab’s offcial media branch, the Al-Kataib («Brigades») Media Foundation and «HSM Press» (with «HSM» standing for the group’s full name, Harakat Al-Shabab al-Mujahidin/«Movement of the Mujahidin-Youth») or by semi-offcial or affliated media collectives such as the terrestrial radio stations Radio al-Furqan and Radio al-Andalus and pro-insurgent Somali-language news web sites. The establishment and continuing evolution of its media operations capabilities has proven to be a valuable tool in the insurgent group’s overall strategy of territorial expansion and implementation of a form of rebel governance over areas of Somalia stretching south from the semi-autonomous region of Puntland. Al-Shabab’s media became an integral part of its insurgency.

Italy Arrests African Talib For Planning Attack in Rome

Remember the Jihadis often use Rome in their propaganda, I can remember an old IQI vid, Hell for the Apostates and Romans.

OME (Reuters) - Police in southern Italy arrested a 22-year-old Somali imam and asylum seeker on Wednesday on suspicion that he was planning an attack in Rome.

The man was detained at a migrant reception centre in Campomarino, in the region of Molise, a police statement said.

"We have clear technical evidence about the possibility that he was organising an attack in Rome," chief prosecutor Armando D'Alterio told reporters, releasing transcripts of wiretaps where the unnamed man discussed possible violence.

"Let's start from Italy, let's go to Rome and start with the station," he was quoted as telling a friend. The simplest route was to "equip oneself and blow oneself up", he said.

Police said he had used his role as an imam to promote the militant groups Islamic State and Somali Islamist group al Shabaab and encourage Muslims to take up jihad, or holy war.

Italian media said police had arrested the man at the so-called "Happy Family" centre because they believed he planned to travel to Rome later on Wednesday.

The same guy made news yesterday by openly preaching Jihad in Italy and that Allah ordered you to kill

Italy should let him suffer for Allah a while in prison then the ultimate punishment, send him back to Somalia and let him get droned.

Note he is a refugee, where rather than flee from Islamic Terrorists he takes advantage of the refuge given to bring the same terrorism to Italy.

Dead Burnt Shabaabs Everywhere!

Good news, we drones 25 Shabaabs in one shot!

The US military announced that it launched an airstrike which targeted a Shabaab “camp” north of the Somali capital of Mogadishu on March 5. The US justified the strike on al Qaeda’s official East African branch by saying that fighters there “posed an imminent threat.”

The announcement was made today in a press release attributed to Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook. According to media reports from Somalia, more than 150 Shabaab fighters were killed in the operation, but the numbers could not be independently confirmed. Cook said that “manned and unmanned aircraft” were used in the attack.

The strike took place against the “Raso Camp” in the town of Raso in Bulobarde province. Raso is more than 100 miles due north of the capital of Mogadishu. The location of the camp serves as a reminder that Shabaab controls areas near Mogadishu that are far from the visible fighting further south.

Somali Jet Suicide Bombing Works Perfectly
Or 100% Proof Allah Hates al-Shabaab

So perfectly in fact that it must be the will of Allah that only the terrorist died and every other person on board survived.

A wheelchair bound suicide bomber may have been responsible for the explosion which tore a hole in the side of a jet in Somalia, investigators have said.

They said the suspected terrorist, thought to be part of the Al-Shabaab Islamist group, may have faked a disability to bypass security checks at Mogadishu airport.

The suspected bomber is also thought to be the man who was sucked out of the plane after blowing a hole in the fuselage, shortly after the plane filled with more than 70 passengers took off from the Somali capital.

The man who fell from the plane has been named by local officials as Abdullahi Abdisalam Borleh, 55, from Somaliland, but they did not confirm if he was the suicide bomber.

So who's side ya think Allah is on? It appears not al-Shabaab's side at all.

Cornhole Watch: African Talib Maalik Alim Jones

Dept of Justice presser. follows

Maalik Alim Jones, 31, of Maryland, was indicted based on his alleged support of al Shabaab, a designated foreign terrorist organization based in Somalia that is allied with al Qaeda. Jones, a U.S. citizen, was presented before Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas of the Southern District of New York on Dec. 19, 2015, pursuant to a criminal complaint.

The charges were announced today by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of the Southern District of New York, Assistant Director in Charge Diego Rodriguez of the FBI’s New York Field Office and Commissioner William J. Bratton of the New York City Police Department.

“Maalik Alim Jones was charged with providing material support to al Shabaab and receiving training from the terrorist organization,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism and we will continue to hold accountable those who seek to provide material support to terrorists.”

“As alleged, Maalik Alim Jones traveled to Somalia, received military training from al Shabaab, and took up arms as a terrorist fighter with an organization that has declared the United States a target,” said U.S. Attorney Bharara. “Now, as ever, we are determined to protect the people of this country from the murderous designs of terrorist organizations. Having allegedly sworn allegiance to al Shabaab, a terrorist organization bent on destroying America, Maalik Jones will now face American justice in a Manhattan federal court.”

“This case highlights the international nature of terrorism and the criminal actions taken in pursuit of attacks against others,” said Assistant Director in Charge Rodriguez. “As alleged herein, Maalik Alim Jones, from Maryland, joined a terrorist organization in Somalia, traveled from New York to Kenya, through Morocco and the UAE, where he was trained to kill and destroy communities. Recently he was caught trying to get to Yemen. We applaud the thorough investigation by the agents and task force officers on FBI’s JTTF, who were able to identify his activities, stop his plans, and bring him here to face the U.S. justice system.”

“As alleged, Jones traveled to Somalia to fight on behalf of al Shabaab, learning to fire an AK-47 and rocket propelled grenade,” said Commissioner Bratton. “He then used this training to attack the Kenyan government, fighting on behalf of this terrorist organization. The work by detectives and agents of the New York Joint Terrorism Task Force should be commended, and the prosecutors of the Southern District of New York whose efforts led to this indictment.”

According to the allegations in the indictment and the complaint, which was unsealed today:

In or about July 2011, Jones traveled via commercial aircraft from New York to Kenya, with stopovers in Morocco and the United Arab Emirates. After arriving in Kenya, Jones traveled by land from Kenya to Somalia where he trained, worked and fought with al Shabaab in Somalia. Among other things, Jones received military training at an al Shabaab training camp, where he learned to operate an AK-47 assault rifle and rocket-propelled grenades. Jones also became a member of al Shabaab’s specialized fighting force, Jaysh Ayman, and participated in combat against soldiers of the Kenyan government on behalf of al Shabaab.

Jones has appeared with other al Shabaab fighters in at least two videos that were recovered from an al Shabaab fighter. In one of the videos, Jones possessed a firearm, and is seen with several al Shabaab fighters who, on June 14, 2015, participated in an attack on a Kenyan Defense Force base in Lamu County, Kenya, during which two Kenyan soldiers were killed.

Jones is charged with conspiracy to provide material support to al Shabaab; providing, and attempting to provide, material support to al Shabaab; conspiracy to receive military-type training from al Shabaab; receipt of military-type training from al Shabaab; and possessing, carrying and using firearms during and in relation to a crime of violence. If convicted, Jones faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment on the charges. In addition, the firearms offense carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment. The minimum and maximum potential sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for information purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant would be determined by the court.

The charges contained in the complaint are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Assistant Attorney General Carlin joined U.S. Attorney Bharara in praising the investigative work of the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force. The Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs also provided significant assistance.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Sean S. Buckley and Andrew J. DeFilippis of the Southern District of New York and Trial Attorney Josh Parecki of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.

al-Shabaab Attacks University in Kenya Taking Christians Hostage (Update: Report 600 hostages) (Update II Bumped 147 Dead)

The Somali model Obama says.... just recently the story was how much better the situation with the African Taliban was. Apparently al-Shabaab heard that too and decided it was time to make trouble.

Gunmen stormed dormitories at Garissa University College in northeastern Kenya on Thursday, shooting indiscriminately, killing and wounding scores of people, and taking Christian hostages, according to news reports.

A mortuary attendant told the Associated Press that at least 15 people were killed and at least 60 others were injured in the predawn attack on the campus, about 90 miles west of the border with Somalia.

“If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot,” Collins Wetangula, a student who was in a dormitory when gunmen burst in, opening doors and asking if students were Muslim or Christian, according to the AP. “With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”

Kenya Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery said 533 students are being held hostage and 282 have been rescued. The total number of students at the school is 815. Sixty staff members, including the principal, are also being held.

Police Inspector-General Joseph Boinett said there was a shootout between the attackers and police officers. "We have the reports that the attackers shot aimlessly while inside the university compound," he said.

Update II The death toll is now 147.
Kenyan agency: 147 dead, plans underway to evacuate students and others
A cold blooded massacre of Christians.

And she didn't want her relatives in North America to worry. "When I was posting these pictures, it was just to let my family back in Toronto know that, hey, I'm safe. It's not, you know, all bad. It's not all blood and gore," she told Morning Edition's Renee Montagne.

March 28th:
MOGADISHU, Somalia, March 28 (UPI) -- Somali soldiers brought an end Saturday to a siege by al-Shabab militants of a Mogadishu hotel frequented by foreigners and government officials, according to multiple reports.
At least 14 people -- including the Somali ambassador to Switzerland, Yusuf Baribari -- were killed in the ordeal, which began Friday when a group of armed men exited a car outside of the Maka al-Mukarama hotel and stormed the building after the vehicle exploded.

The 12-hour siege, which reportedly wounded 28 others, ended Saturday when U.S.-trained Somali special forces stormed the building. Journalists reported seeing bodies of militants and soldiers at the scene, and some diplomats jumped from windows to escape death. One such person told Al Jazeera that the militants were killing people indiscriminately.

I think maybe the safety needs to simmer a bit longer, needs more salt.

"The indiscriminate killings went on and on and on," he told BBC Focus on Africa.

SuperDrone is very convincing.

NY Times:

A leader of the Somali militant group al Shabaab was killed by a U.S. air strike in Somalia, U.S. and Somali officials said on Tuesday.

The victim, identified as Abdishakur and also known as Tahliil, was the head of Amniyat, a unit blamed for suicide attacks in Mogadishu, Somalia's National Intelligence and Security Agency said in a statement.

The U.S. Defense Department said on Monday it had launched an air strike in Somalia that targeted a senior al Shabaab leader.

Two U.S. officials familiar with the matter confirmed that Abdishakur was the target of the U.S. air strike, and one said Abdishakur was killed in the attack.

Tinyish Minority of African Muslims Take 185 Women and Children Hostage in Yet Another Isolated Incident

In yet another totally isolated incident Boko Haram took 185 hostage and killed 32 men.

Boko Haram insurgents kidnapped at least 185 women and children, and killed 32 people in a raid in northeastern Nigeria this week, local officials and residents said.

Gunmen in pickup trucks attacked the village of Gumsuri, just north of Chibok, on Sunday, shooting down men before herding women and children together.
"They gathered the women and children and took them away in trucks after burning most of the village with petrol bombs," a local government official said on condition anonymity for fear of reprisal.

News of the attack took four days to emerge because of a lack of communication. Telecommunications towers in the region had been disabled in previous attacks.

Local officials learned of the attack from residents who fled to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, where the officials had moved a year ago to escape Boko Haram attacks.

The militants stormed the village from two directions, overwhelming local vigilantes who had repelled Boko Haram attacks over the course of the year, said Gumsuri resident Umar Ari, who trekked for four days to Maiduguri.
‎"They destroyed almost half the village and took away 185 women, girls and boys," Ari said.‎

By my count that's at least one totally isolated event every day this week.

Stupid Jihadi Bitch Samantha Lewthwaite Killed Again

This time in Ukraine?

The ‘White Widow’, a British female terrorist suspect who allegedly fought alongside ISIS terrorists in Syria and was sought internationally has reportedly been shot dead in Ukraine. The news was reported by Russia’s Regnum news agency.

Samantha Lewthwaite, 30, was allegedly gunned down two weeks ago. However, no independent confirmation was available.

A source at the UK's foreign office told ITV News that “we are aware of reports that Samantha Lewthwaite has been killed in Ukraine”.

Lewthwaite recently fought alongside one of Kiev’s most infamous squads – the Aidar battalion, which was condemned by Amnesty International for its unmatched cruelty in eastern Ukraine.

It was said to be “involved in widespread abuses, including abductions, unlawful detention, ill-treatment, theft, extortion, and possible executions.”

She was reportedly a sniper for the group. Her killer was also a sniper - allegedly one who travelled from Russia as a volunteer to fight near Lugansk. Regnum is reporting that the Ukrainians have put out a million-dollar bounty out on him.

If a Russian sniper killed her, that's cool.

Its possible that that through her connections in Syria she might have went to Chechnya or another Balkan republic. But bear in mind that Russia has an interest in misreporting her location due to to the conflict in Ukraine.

So here at Jawa we're going with, Everyone has claimed to have killed Samantha, so pics or video or it didn't happen.

But just for trying to kill her I'll run this.

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.

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


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.


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.

Even as the devastating impact of Typhoon Haiyan began to emerge in the Philippines, Somalia too experienced one of the deadliest tropical cyclones in its history. Tropical Cyclone 3A moved over Puntland, Somalia, on November 10–11, 2013, causing flash floods that left more than 100 dead. The storm destroyed hundreds of homes and thousands of livestock, according to news reports.
*Look on the bright side......

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.


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."

Welcome to the real world, son. Oh, wait, you're dead. Oops!

Thanks to the meanest kitteh.

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.


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.

Sandcrawler PSA: Boko Haram The Other African Taliban

Selected Wisdom:

This past week, HSPI at George Washington University released the first issue brief of its Africa series (initiated last month) entitled “Boko Haram in Nigeria: No Easy Fix“. 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. Here is the link to the full article and I’ve pasted the introduction here below.

Yes, yes I am making you click twice.

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.

Harakat Al-Shabaab Al-Mujahideen


I wonder if Somalis President calls al-Shabaab the "African Taliban" like the Jawa Report does.

You never know...

Thanks to @Aynte, who apparently received a email from them.

Shucks, they have never emailed me. Dunno why, well there was that one time I was. Wait, more than one time I was..

Shucky darn.

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.
