Somalia: Children kidnapped and kept in chains to be taught how to become suicide bombers

Al Qaeda’s brutal new weapons: Children kidnapped and kept in chains to be taught how to become suicide bombers


Al Qaeda is kidnapping young children in troubled Somalia and brainwashing them to launch future attacks on the West, it has been claimed.

The ‘terrorist schools’ keep the children – some as young as seven – chained up to beds while they were taught an extreme version of Islam.

The youths, all under 10-years-old, were also taught about suicide bombings and told they would go to paradise if they killed themselves in ‘martyrdom-operations’.

Boko Haram vows to fight until Nigeria establishes sharia law

I guess we’ll never know what motivates them. As always: nothing to do with Islam:

Exclusive: Spokesman for Islamist group  Islamic terrorists says it will not stop deadly attacks until country is ruled according to dictates of Allah

The Islamist group Boko Haram, which has killed almost 1,000 people in Nigeria, will continue its campaign of violence until the country is ruled by sharia law, a senior member has told the Guardian.

“We will consider negotiation only when we have brought the government to their knees,” the spokesman, Abu Qaqa, said in the group’s first major interview with a western newspaper. “Once we see that things are being done according to the dictates of Allah, and our members are released [from prison], we will only put aside our arms – but we will not lay them down. You don’t put down your arms in Islam, you only put them aside.”

Somalia’s al-Shabab militants ban Red Cross aid work

Al-Shabab had already halted the work of several aid agencies working in the famine-hit region, including some from the UN. It accused them of exaggerating the scale of the problems for political reasons, and trying to convert Muslims to Christianity. (BBC)

Kenya police arrest imam over weapons cache

Kenyan police say they have arrested an imam after they found a cache of weapons in his house.

The chief of police for the coastal region says the suspect is a sympathizer of Somalia’s al-Shabab militia. Deputy Commissioner Aggrey Adoli says the haul included a pistol, a rifle, detonators and hand grenades. Aboud Rogo was named in a U.N. report last year as having links to al-Shabab, and is on bail for possession of weapons.

He wuz framed!

But Rogo’s wife Khania Saidi Sagar says police framed her husband. She says the house was searched in front of Rogo’s mother and children and nothing was found.

Jihad DownUnder: Australians are infidels, no motherland here….

Nothing that interfaith sessions, government handouts and an army of social workers can’t fix.  Most important is of course to assure the shocked, fearful  muslim community that there is no backlash to worry about, and that their clerics and their mosques are not under surveillance. Because that could cause  backlash. Police commissioner Simon Overland is already fully in tune with Islamic customs and is often seen apologizing to Islamic leaders, usually after some of the tiny minority of extremists  get caught doing their Islamic duty, which includes blowing up stoopid infidels like you and me.
Terror trial begins in Supreme Court: “nothing to do with Islam, Islam is not on trial here…”

The Australian/ Stuart Rintoul

A group of conspirators waited in Australia for an Islamic cleric in Somalia to grant them a fatwa.

They wanted his blessing to break into Sydney’s Holsworthy army base and kill as many people as possible.

But one of them expressed fears that it could be “a catastrophe”, the Victorian Supreme Court heard yesterday.

In a phone conversation intercepted by police in June last year, Abdirahmin Mohamud Ahmed told Saney Edow Aweys it would be easy for an “angry” sheik in the mountains of Somalia to tell them to “enter this place” and they had to ask “people with knowledge”.

“If the sheik says to the guys enter this place . . . it’s a catastrophe, brother,” Mr Ahmed said.

Mr Aweys, who has been identified in many recorded conversations repeatedly describing Australians as “infidels”, told Mr Ahmed he was “soft” and told him if a fatwa was granted, “I am included”.

Pirates missing

The Russkies know how to deal with pirates:

Russian Soldiers Stormed Ship & Executed All of Our Men

“The Russians never released the young men instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat”

The Russian media reports say pirates released on the open sea after hijacking a Russian oil tanker last week never made it ashore and are likely dead.

The Somali pirates will likely think twice before the hijack another Russian ship.
Russian soldiers stormed the MV Moscow University and executed all of the pirates after securing the ship.

Pirates ‘have all died,’ Russia says, after decrying ‘imperfections’ in international law

UK: yet another burqa robbery

From the RoP:

Obamessiah knows a “lightweight” when he sees one:

(Guardian)- According to tomorrow’s New Statesman, Barack Obama was unimpressed by his encounter with David Cameron earlier this year and commented: “What a lightweight!”

Unfortunately, Obama is right, Cameron is a “lightweight”. He is a pillock, a wassock. The only thing “conservative” about Cameron, the inventor of “progressive conservativism” (a contradiction in terms if ever there was one), is that he is the leader of a party with the word “conservative” in the title. Weasel Zippers has the story

US: More Tolerance Needed:

Imam: Mosque near Ground Zero would prove American religious tolerance

Why the assumption that we have something to prove? Meanwhile, we’re expected to take Islam’s claims of “tolerance” (which is according to its own definition and standards, not the Western tradition) as an article of politically correct faith. The tasteless positioning of a mosque near Ground Zero is also intended to foist another part of that dogma on New Yorkers — namely, that Islam had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks, so a mosque in that location ought to be quite alright, right?

But there are two problems here: 1. Islamic jihad was the motivation behind those attacks, and 2. it is Islam that has a problem with tolerance, as is made clear by its own texts and teachings (one may start with Qur’an 9:29, 98:6), and the abundance of Islamic nations cited as “Countries of Particular Concern” in the annual report of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Pamela: What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings brought down by Islamic attack?

Lastly, the fact that this project is called the “Cordoba House” adds a certain level of insult to injury. In that vein, someone might ask Imam Rauf about the Hagia Sophia sometime.

Somalia: no doctors needed:  Jihadists with rocket-propelled grenades attack Doctors Without Borders

Who needs doctors when  virgins await?

We’re often told that poverty causes jihadist terrorism — a claim for which numerous counterexamples are readily available. But much less attention is paid to how jihad and the strictures of Sharia help to perpetuate poverty, illness, misery, and underdevelopment, as in this case. “Doctors Without Borders Clinic Attacked in Somalia,” from VOA News,/Jihad Watch

As Somali Islamists Drive Out Pirates, What Happens to 360 Hostages?


Islamic rebels seeking to take control of Somalia have seized a key coastal village used by pirates, leaving the fate of some 360 hostages in doubt. Members of Hizbul-Islam entered Haradhere over the weekend, prompting pirates to flee the area. A BBC News reporter said at least 60 hostages from three vessels were moved up the coast, but that still left another 300 captives unaccounted for.

International fight against piracy … French forces with Somali pirates captured in the Gulf of Aden.

Publicly, Hizbul-Islam fighters, who arrived in Haradhere after themselves being driven out of the port town of Kismayo by another Islamist group, has said it wants to end piracy as part of its goal to establish Sharia law in Somalia. Hizbul-Islam also opposes prostitution, drugs and alcohol, all of which were widespread under pirate rule.

But there are unconfirmed reports that the group tried previously to cut a deal with pirates and share in the ransom money. The New York Times has reported that pirates may have collected as much as $100 million in ransoms, making their work an enticing source of revenue.

Somalia: War on Bouncing Tits…


Residents said gunmen had been rounding up any woman seen with a firm bust and then had them publicly whipped by masked men. The women were then told to remove their bras and shake their breasts.

“Al shabaab forced us to wear their type of veil and now they order us to shake our breasts,” a resident, Halima, told Reuters, adding that her daughters had been whipped Thursday.

“They first banned the former veil and introduced a hard fabric which stands stiffly on women’s chests. They are now saying that breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat.”
