Uganda Jihad: Al Qaida Bombs Kill 30

Make that 50!

Update: make it 60!

Dozens killed in multiple bombings in Uganda, police chief suspects al-Qaeda

I guess Uganda been quite for too long:

Sheik Yusuf Sheik Issa:

“Uganda is one of our enemies. Whatever makes them cry, makes us happy. May Allah’s anger be upon those who are against us.”

Muslim POTUS Obama “deeply saddened”

calls “explosions “deplorable and cowardly”. Al BeBeeCeera

The police chief in Kampala is blaming al-Qaeda and its Somali franchise, al-Shabaab, with good reason. The synchronized attacks certainly point to al-Qaeda; the targeting of an Ethiopian restaurant and venues showing the World Cup final resonate with two things the al-Shabaab jihadists detest, and al-Shabaab just threatened Uganda and Burundi in the past few days.

Obama Administration pushing Sharia in Kenya

No surprises here. The boy is dying to come out!

Both posts thanks to Jihad Watch

Obama campaigned in Kenya in August 2006 for the presidential candidate Raila Odinga, who is now Prime Minister of Kenya. Odinga has troubling ties to Islamic hardliners: he reportedly made a fortune in the oil industry by making a deal with the Al-Bakri Group of Saudi Arabia. Abdulkader al-Bakri, the CEO of the Al Bakri Group, has been identified as a sponsor of Al-Qaeda. Odinga also cultivated ties with Muammar Gaddafi.

And now this: the U.S. government is promoting a pro-Sharia Constitution in Kenya. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Obama’s consistent pro-Islamic supremacist, pro-Sharia policies; get the full story of Obama’s dealings with Odinga and his Islamic supremacist ties in general in The Post-American Presidency.

Is there any problem with the President of the United States pushing and financing in another country the establishment of a system that would deny basic freedoms? Does anyone care?

  1. Uganda: Christian pastor petitions Parliament to remove Islamic Sharia laws from Constitution

    Because they establish Muslims as a special, privileged class in society. Meanwhile, in Nashville, Muslims are claiming victim status over a proposed anti-Sharia law. The supporters of this law should bring in Pastor Umaru Mulinde to testify about what Sharia actually does to a society. “Uganda People News: Pastor petitions parliament over Sharia laws,” from, April 19:

    Pastor Umaru Mulinde of Life Gospel Church in Namasuba has asked Parliament to remove the Islamic Sharia Laws (Kadhi Courts) in the constitution.
    The pastor says the constitution favors Islam than other religions because other religions have not been given platform in the constitution.

    In his petition addressed to the Speaker of Parliament Edward Sekandi, Mulinde says the special treatment given to Islam creates divisionism with other religions, which may cause problems like those in Nigeria and Sudan.

    However, Sekandi says that Christians particularly the Pentecostal churches should learn to coexist with Muslims otherwise amending the constitution to the pastor’s favor may cause more problems….

    Indeed. It will likely cause Muslims to become angry, and you know what that means.

  2. U.S. general warns of pan-African jihadist network

    Jihad Watch
    An update on this story. While U.S. operations have been making Swiss cheese of al-Qaeda’s operational structure in Pakistan, another threat has been quietly emerging over a broader geographical area. The rise of any of the current “Big 3” jihadist groups in Africa, Boko Haram, al-Shabaab, and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (or the Apparently-Not-Islamic-Enough Maghreb) is cause for concern, but reports of collaboration between all three groups obviously escalates the threat not only for the African continent, but for its use as a forward operating base for targets across the Mediterranean and beyond.

    All of them were once local groups, pursuing supposedly “local” grievances with local “underlying causes,” but they have found common cause because they share the same aim: the imposition of Sharia law, which is the goal of jihad in all of its forms. “Terror threat ‘very worrying’ in Africa: US general,” from Agence France-Presse, September 15:

    Africa must improve security cooperation in battling extremists or face the prospect of a continent-wide terror network threatening the region and the United States, a top US commander warned Wednesday.
    General Carter Ham, head of US African command AFRICOM, said countries in North Africa face increasing threats from terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda affiliates who wish to join forces — as well as from extremists in Libya who might fan out to other locales, bringing a proliferation of weapons and an exodus of people from the war-torn country.
    “Al-Qaeda main may be somewhat diminished, but the affiliates, both acknowledged and those who would like to be affiliated, may be gaining in capacity. And that’s what I see in Africa and that’s what concerns me,” Ham told reporters in Washington.
    He said three groups form the greatest threat: the Algeria-based Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which has claimed numerous terrorist attacks in the region; the militant Shebab operating out of Somalia and East Africa; and Islamist group Boko Haram, blamed for repeated attacks in Nigeria including a bomb blast at UN headquarters in Abuja in August.
    “Each of those three independently I think presents a significant threat, not only in the nations in which they primarily operate, but regionally, and I think they present a threat to the United States,” Ham said.
    The organizations have “very explicitly and publicly” voiced intent to target the West, and while Ham said he questions their capability to do so, “I have no question about their intent to do so.”
    The four arrested in Sweden last weekend on suspicion of planning a jihadist attack were reported to have connections to al-Shabaab.

    He also warned that the groups have expressed intent to “more closely collaborate and synchronize their efforts” in training and operations.
    “If left unaddressed, you could have a network that ranges from East Africa, through the center and into the Sahel and Magreb, and I think that would be very, very worrying.”
    Ham said US cooperation with regional partners was vital, and that while African nations must take the lead, Washington is providing assistance to countries like Mali.
    But when pressed on specifics of US operations, including the possible use of military drones over Somalia, Ham was dry on the details.
    “I like the fact that Al-Shebab and other extremist leaders in some parts of the world don’t know where we are, what we might do, what we are doing, what we’re not doing,” he said.


    While U.S. operations have been making Swiss cheese of al-Qaeda’s operational structure in Pakistan, another threat has been quietly emerging over a broader geographical area.

    If the US keeps trying to isolate ‘terrorist’ organizations from their larger islamic context, it will continue draining its resources and servicemens’ lives playing whack-a-mole. This is an ideological war that must be dealt with the same way the cold war was conducted — militarily, intellectually and culturally. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem much chance of that happening under the Hussein administration.
