* Winds of Jihad reported: the son of the illustrious terrorist who brought us Lockerbie, the Berlin disco-bombings and many more, is the apple of daddies eye because he does exactly what daddy always did: actively engage in jihad terrorism from Thailand to the Philipines, from Indonesia to Africa and also in Iraq.
Instead of making sleazy deals with this terrorist monster in Tunis the French & the Americans should have bombed him again and again and again. For his son, Saif ul Islam, (‘the sword of Islam) a targeted assassination would be a blessing. It would save many innocent lives…
A devastating explosion in northern Iraq was spearheaded by foreign fighters under the sponsorship of Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, son of the Libyan leader, a security chief for Sunni tribesmen who rose up against Al Qaeda in Iraq said Saturday.
Col. Jubair Rashid Naief, who also is a police official in Anbar province, said the Anbar Awakening Council had alerted the U.S. military to the possible arrival in the northern city of Mosul of the Seifaddin Regiment, made up of about 150 foreign and Iraqi fighters, as long as three months ago.
The U.S. military did not immediately respond to an e-mail request for comment about Naief’s claim.
“They crossed the Syrian border nearest to Mosul within the last two to three months. Since then, they have taken up positions in the city and begun blowing up cars and launching other terror operations,” Naief told The Associated Press.
The so-called Anbar Awakening Council is a grouping of Sunni tribes in the western province that last year turned against Al Qaeda and began working with U.S. forces. The council is credited with the sharp drop in violence in the former insurgent redoubt.
The movement has since been spread by Americans through Baghdad and surrounding districts. That and the introduction of 30,000 additional U.S. troops by mid-2007 are seen as the main factors in the recent decline in violence in the country.
Naief did not explain why the younger Gadhafi would be sponsoring the group of fighters. Seif Gadhafi, however, was quoted by the Austrian Press Agency last year as warning Europeans against more attacks by radical Islamists.
“The only solution to contain radicalism is the rapid departure of Western troops from Iraq as well as Afghanistan, and a solution to the Palestinian question,” Gadhafi was quoted as saying.
Touted as a ‘reformer’, 36-year-old Gadhafi has increasingly been sharing his father’s spotlight and reaching out to the West to soften Libya’s image and return it to the international mainstream. He has no official government post, but many see him as the man most likely to take power in the North African country when his father steps down or dies.
