They must be moderates. They kill only Christians and infidels.
“Call me Mister Marlborough”
Al-Qaeda of the Islamic Maghreb emirÂ Mokhtar BelmokhtarÂ is said to be behind the terrorist attack.
Mokhtar Belmokhtar – who is accused of ordering the attack on a gas facility in eastern Algeria in which foreign workers have been killed and taken hostage – is a one-eyed war veteran with the nickname “Mr Marlboro”. Â He acquired the nickname because of his role in cigarette-smuggling across the Sahel region to finance his jihad, now waged under the banner of the Signed-in-Blood Battalion.
The media is tying this to Mali. I am not so sure.Â The jihadists knew the base very well.This was a well planned act of war in moderate Algeria. It’s just the spread of Islamic supremacist emboldened by a weak and feckless American President.
But the priority for Obama and the enemedia is gun control.Â Hiding behind the skirts of children, a dictatorial Obama usurped Congress and he approved 23 executive actionsÂ by executive fiat of course.
Algeria Gunmen Tell Hostages ‘We Only Kill Christians and Infidels’Â
Reuters,Thursday, 17 Jan 2013
Islamist gunmen who seized hundreds of gas plant workers in the Sahara told Algerian staff they would not harm Muslims but would kill Western hostages they called “Christians and infidels”,Â a local man who escaped said on Thursday.
In a rare eyewitness account of Wednesday’s dawn raid deep in the desert, a local man employed at the facility told Reuters the militants appeared to have good inside knowledge of the layout of the complex and used the language of radical Islam.
“The terrorists told us at the very start that they would not hurt Muslims but were only interested in the Christians and infidels,”Â Abdelkader, 53, said by telephone from his home in the nearby town of In Amenas.Â “We will kill them, they said.”
