As leaders from all the world were meeting today to discuss ways ramp up Support for the nascent Federal republic of Somalia, hundreds of agitated protesters stood near where the Somalia conference was being held. needles to say the flags that were being waved, slogans on the placards, music and the lively chanting, are emblematic of the divisive politics in Somalia as things sand now.
Also present were members of the Djiboutienne diaspora, represented by the country’s biggest opposition party Union for National Salvation (USN). Opposition parties believe the presidential elections held in February this year were widely rigged, after the current President won a landslide majority. President Omar Guelleh has been in office since 1999 and managed to change the constitution before the election in order for him to run.

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Mogadishu (21/08/2012) – The death of the Ethiopian dictator Meles Zenawi brings to a conclusion a dark chapter in the history of the East African Horn; not only for the millions of Muslims who’ve suffered under his brutal dictatorship and oppressive policies at home, but also for the thousands of Muslims killed in Somalia as a result of the persistent Ethiopian invasions.
In an attempt to consolidate his hold on power, Zenawi has tirelessly been engaged in a multi-pronged strategy of annexing Somali Muslim territories into Ethiopia on the one hand, and fighting Islam as a proxy in the West’s war against Islam on the other. But despite the numerous attempts to conquer the will of the Muslims of Somalia and bring them under the subjugation of the Ethiopian regime, Zenawi died a bitter man after having miserably failed to accomplish either of his objectives.
It’s not only the Muslims of Somalia who bore the full brunt of Zenawi’s brutal regime, but millions of indigenous tribes who have long been suppressed by the dictator’s heavy-handed methods and silently suffered in solitude are today beginning to sense a fresh air of hope across the horizon.
The death of Zenawi will remove major obstacles in the path towards reform in the country and provide a golden opportunity to the Muslims in Ethiopia to strive towards openly practising and propagating their faith. We encourage the Muslims of Ethiopia to rise and revolt against what is left of the dictator’s repressive regime and implement the Shari’ah of Islam. Tyrannical regimes will come and go, but the Truth of Islam shall continue to prevail and enlighten the population in all corners of the world.

As the intelligence chief for Ugandan forces, charged with hunting down the leader of the notorious Ugandan Lords Resistance Army (LRA) Joseph Kony; Lt. Col. Abdul Rugumayo was thrusted into the limelight and was widely quoted, after UPDF forces succeeded in capturing top Kony lieutenant Caesar Acellam in the central African Republic.
“He’s been on the defection shelf for a long time,” said Angelo Izama, a political analyst with the Kampala-based security think tank Fanaka Kwawote. “This is a big intelligence coup for the Ugandan army.”
Unbeknown to many though, Lt. Col. Rugumayo was previously posted in Somalia, as a senior intelligence officer for AMISOM, against the Somali Islamist insurgent groups Al-Shabab and the now defunct hizbul Islam,but there was no “big intelligence coup” of the kind for the UPDF led AMISOM force in Somalia, on the contrary, it was an utter failure of intelligence, and its consequences was soon felt.
In a professionally produced two part documentary video, posted on jihadi forums, entitled “AMISOM and the inevitable end (part 2)”, and released by Al shabab’s media arm al kataib (the brigades), colonel abdul rugumayo ,who cuts a fairly small figure, is featured talking on hidden camera carried by a Shabab double agent, before shaking hands with the double agent and disappearing from view.
The video begins with Quranic recitation by Sheikh Omar Abdelrahman, the Egyptian cleric imprisoned in the US, convicted of terrorism.
The documentary video mainly features planning of a ‘martyrdom operation’ in Mogadishu’s Konis satdium – in which ironically, Olympic hopefuls train in currently, by a team of young Somali men who later drove confiscated white UN marked 4×4 SUV’s ,laden with explosives into AMISOM’s largest base nextto Mogadishu’s Aden Adde international airport.
The bombing was in revenge of slain shabab commander Salih Ali Salih Al-Nabhani, who was killed in US special forces raid as he travelled in convoy, near baraawe , Somalia in 2009, in an operation dubbed “celestial balance”.
The attack resulted in the death of scores of AMISOM troops, including the death of the highest ranking soldier to be killed in the conflict, Burundian deputy force commander then Maj. Gen. Juvenal Niyonguruza.
Al-Shabab have before and since carried high profile attacks, the latest of which, was the theatre blast, in an attempt to kill Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohammed Ali gas and members of his cabinet, though promises were made to investigate, it is not yet known, and will probably never be known how the Somali insurgents got through, but analysts suspect its the work of sympathisers who have links to the transitional federal government.

According to a world bank report released recently, a total of $130 million is unaccounted for the years of 2009 and 2010, and it doesn’t come as a surprise.
The nascent Transitional Federal Government (TFG), were previously accused by former chief of Somalia’s public finance unit turned whistle blower Abdirizak Fartaag, in a leaked report to the Associated Press which suggested that, approximately $300million Including $70 million cash donations from oil rich gulf states siphoned off by corrupt officials.
Mr Fartaag held the same position under the tenure former prime ministers, Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke and Mohammed Abdullahi Farmajo, thus one would believe he is well positioned, but for its part, TFG ministers instead, accused AP of what it termed as ” extremely irresponsible journalism” ,and in an effort to brush aside the report as mere political smear campaign against the government, it accused AP of being ” influenced by opposition political agendas”, however, the recent report by world bank adds to the growing body of evidence of rampant corruption within the TFG.
Despite this latest report by the world bank, the TFG’s reaction hasn’t changed, in fact it was met by President Sheikh Sharif with almost a denial, responding to the report he said; “we urge the international community to check back whether the donations were given to the government” , furthermore with hint of scepticism he stated “It is simple to claim allegations but you must make it clear and tangible. Where the money has gone is what we want to know also”
Prior the president’s trip to Turkey for the Second Istanbul conference on Somalia, he was invited to South Africa for the Global African Diaspora Summit, whilst there, he met members of the Somali community. The president called on Somalis to provide financial support for the TFG.
“at the time when, clan warlords and Islamic courts union groups faced off each other, you provided us with generous financial support” said sheikh Sharif, echoing a time when he was riding high on a wave optimism, an era when Somalis overwhelmingly backed the Islamist militia he headed, not to mention a thief’s hand was consequently severed as a punishment, but in same breath the president lamented “now you do not support the government” , however most telling, is his awareness of the huge dent to public confidence, he remarked; “do you believe false reports that allege the government is corrupt?”
In a bid to help the TFG stem the financial haemorrhaging, the final communique of the second Istanbul conference on somalia, suggested the establishment of Joint Financial Management Board (JFMB), to see that donations do not disappear into a black hole;
“37. The Conference welcomed ongoing negotiations to establish a mutual accountability regime built around the proposed Joint Financial Management Board (JFMB). It urged the early conclusion of the negotiations establishing the JFMB and noted that the international community remains committed to helping Somalia better regulate its finances and development assistance.”
Though the government supported the communique on the whole, however they were quick to make it crystal clear that, they will not agree to such arrangements. Government spokesman abdirahman Omar Osman Yarisow said they will not allow themselves ” to be financially managed” , and that the above mentioned point will need to be revisited.
Its worth mentioning in 2009 and 2010 the TFG controlled few neighbourhoods in Mogadishu, with military offensive against Al shabab under way, governing newly captured areas without providing basic services is simply unsustainable and ultimately, may prove to be Achilles heel for the foreign sponsored peace process.Follow the Somali War Monitor on Twitter @somwarmonitor ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————- © The “Somali War Monitor”, 2012- 2013.

For years now, whenever a Somali news article’s subject was sheikh Mukhtar abu zubeyr AKA Ahmed Abdi Godane , a picture of thin middle aged Somali man, wearing a pair photo-chromic glasses with sparse facial hair looking into the distance is attached, the purported picture, as that of the leader of one of Al Qaeda’s most powerful affiliates, the Somali Islamist militant group Al-shabaab.
listed as a rouge on Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World”, alongside Afghanistan’s Taliban leader Mullah Muhammed Omar,both men are described as being propelled by “the hypnotic appeal of establishing God’s Kingdom on earth”.
Perhaps this international exposure, was the last straw that broke the camel’s back as it were, for the man who that picture actually belongs to and who incidentally has absolutely nothing to do with Somalia’s Islamist insurgency.
speaking from guriceel to multiple local media outlets earlier this month, Shuuke abdirahman Odowa remarked bitterly ” i call the on world and the transitional federal government to take legal action against those websites (that use my picture).”
“i feel that i have been criminalised for something i did not commit, and that i have become something of a pariah unable to travel freely” Mr odowa said to another Somali news website.
Shuuke abdirahman Odowa, was a former commander of Hizbul-Islam that has merged with Al shabaab back in 2010 under Sheikh hassan dahir aweys’s leadership, after years of tumultuous relationship and series of defections that has plagued the group.
Mr Odowa washed his hands from the Islamist rebels in 2009, accusing hizbul islam of ” diverting from the goal that it was established for” at an event, attended by former Security Minister Abdullahi Mohamed Sanbalolshe, along with 19 of his fighters including battle wagons.
his defection came shortly after his brother Ahmed Abdirrahman Odawa AKA Taliban another hizbul islam commander, was killed in ceelasha biyah area which Shuuke was in charge of belhaf of the group.
Shuuke said the famous photo was taken of him after his defection, and was used from thereon as Ahmed Godane’s only known photo. The simple fact is, there are no known pictures of Ahmed Abdi Godane.
Two decades of dictatorship followed by another almost two decades of anarchy, produced politically divided along clan lines media outlets in somalia, with little in the way of accountancy and responsible journalism,but sadder yet is the lack of due diligence on behalf TIME magazine.

Highlights of Omar Hammami’s autobiography “The story of an american Jihadi” Part1 #Somalia #alShabaab
Early Jihadi influence
Turns out, Mikey’s mom is the District Attorney! Ha ha. In the car my dad told me to just stay quiet. I told him: if they ask me I will just say that we kill people for making fun of our religion! My father flipped on me and told me to just keep my stupid mouth shut. Ha ha. To explain my frame of mind, around those times I used to go to the website of the Mujaahidiin of Shiishaan (chechnya ) in the school library! P15
Theological journey to the “obligation of jihad”
Disenchantment with “neo- salafism” and move towards jihadi salafism
There was also another problem there. My friends had begun listening to scholars who had been considered off limits before. According to the “Salafi” ideology (or rather the Neo- Salafi ideology) anyone who talks about the “Muslim” leaders or talks about Jihaad, like Sayyid Qutub, is a serious heretic. P21
Personal experiences of Socio-political landscape post 9/11
Later on some people would actually do more than look at me in that way (some acted like they would run me over while driving their big trucks, others yelled at me from their balconies with beer cans in their hands shouting “my buddy died in Afghanistan,” others got out of their cars at red lights, others acted as if they would not fix my car unless I denounced bin Laden and praised George Bush, and so forth) p 21
Lingering Doubts about the permissibility of 9/11 and similar acts, despite lack of sympathy.
I was mixed between the “hatred of terrorism” instilled by the “Salafis” and between my real hatred for America, the disbelievers, and their oppression of the Muslims. Although I did go through a denial phase and blamed it on the Muslims for not engaging in enough Dacwah (as is reported by the USA school newspaper theVanguard) I still remember finding myself alone in the Masjid that day and I jumped upand said: Allaahu Akbar! P21
Withdrawing from “scholarly or scientific Salafism” to “jihadi salafism”
But 9/11 itself didn’t “radicalize” me as they say. I took things a bit more intellectuallythan that (and luckily so, because most people who do come to Jihaad based on emotions and revenge usually leave fairly quickly once it runs dry). In specific, there was a well-known scholar who was having a scholarly debate with one of the top scholars of the“Salafis,” Shaykh Rabiic bin Haadi al-Madkhali. This guy…psh…may Allaah guide him.He just attacks everyone like a rabid dog. The scholar was defending himself with proofs and Shaykh Rabiic was just attacking him personally based upon nothing but conjecture. Istarted to have serious doubts not only about Shaykh Rabiic or those who follow him, butthe whole “Salafi” movement as a whole. I noticed that it was supposed to be built uponseeking knowledge and thereby bringing about change. However, those who ascribe to itrarely seek real knowledge. They are only engaged in talking about one another. Even if they seek real knowledge, they hide their findings when it comes down to issues that anger America and the Saudi government. All of this led me to the realization that I should read both sides. I should hear from those scholars that have been warned against all of these years. P21
The second thing that made me leave the fake “Salafi” way is the war in Iraq. As I said the original act of September 11th and the invasion of Afghanistan didn’t really change my perspective. But for some reason (maybe due to the other changes I mentioned), by the time the Iraq war started I could not find anyway for us to say that it is anything less than obligatory to fight the Americans there p22
I went back to reading Islaamic books. I used to read from morning tillnight in the good old days, but then the work had started to eat away from my time. Now Iwas back on track. I also started reading the books that were “banned” by the “Salafis” and I realized that the problem with the “Salafis” is extended to their most famous scholars: al-Albaani, ibn Cuthaymiin, bin Baaz, Muqbil bin Haadi, and so forth. The true followers of the Salaf were more adamant in standing up to the rulers and they had a clear understanding of Kufr and Imaan. I also started to feel my old emotions towards Jihaad once again and I began to believe that Hijrah is Waajib. At that time I had left the thoughtof marriage and I started thinking of going back to Syria and waiting for the Jihaad to spillover from Iraq (who would have guessed that it would start from within?). I think I was watching the Khattaab documentary quite a lot those days. P28
Visit to Syria
Around this time I found out that my uncle, Rafiiq, had been released from the torture chamber of the Syrian regime. So I had to go see him. This was the man I had only heard about for my entire life. So I told my dad (who was still angry with me) that I have to go with him to Syria. P22
Anyway, we reached Syria and I met with my uncle for the first time to find that I was stilla bit too “Salafi” for his tastes. Despite that, he still loved me a lot and wanted me to travelaround with him and his friends; which was to be a learning experience because I learnedabout what jail is like and how the Muslims coped with their torture. It gave me more of ahatred for the disbelieving rulers of the Muslim countries. It also gave me an urge to freethe Muslim prisoners around the world. He told me how the Asad Regime would preventthem from praying and fasting. P23
Accounts of foreign Fighters
Abu Muxammad al-Amriiki, (Daniel Maldanado)
That was the scene while I was there, and it was under such circumstances that I met one of my best friends and closest brothers: Abu Muxammad al-Amriiki, Daniel Maldanado (may Allaah free him from the oppression of the Americans). I was surfing the net one day and I found someone talking about the English institutes in Egypt who sounded like an American. I read what he had said and I noticed that he was talking about Alexandria. I managed to get his email address and ask him how it could be possible that another American is living in Alexandria. I told him to give me a ring so we could discuss things better. A few minutes later I received a phone call and my mobile phone read: ‘Daniel.’ About a week prior to that incident, a Shaykh had told me that there was a new American with children that needs some help finding a place to educate his children and so forth. P33
On His mentor/theological guide Abu Muxahamad (Daniel Maldanado)/ theological reasoning /influences for jihad/
One of the main things that struck us both was that we both had a love for seeking knowledge and a love for helping the Ummah. As I said before, I had been dabbling in the idea of Jihaad for some time now, but I was also under the impression that there was no where for me to go and the only answer was to call others to the realization that at least something must be done. Abu Muxammad was a bit more advanced. He had spent his time as a Muslim reading about Jihaad and discussing Jihaad with other like-minded people. His only problem was that he felt that it was impossible to find a way and therefore the road to Jihaad was blocked. Regardless, Abu Muxammad managed to give me guidance about which books are necessary to read about Jihaad and about the Jihaadi Manhaj. He also told me about some Jihaadi scholars that I had previously been too scared to read from. I remember when I finally decided to read “Millatu Ibraahiim,” by Abu Muxammad al- Maqdasi. I was at work. I went to the website, I opened the book, I took a deep breath, and I read the introduction. I was so surprised to see how well the Shaykh was supporting his ideas with proofs. I was even more surprised to see the names of the scholars he was quoting. Abu Muxammad, my friend, had been telling me that I should read more about Muxammad bin Cabdul Wahhaab but I didn’t take it very seriously. When I saw Abu Muxammad al-Maqdasi quoting things from him and his children and grandchildren that I would never have dreamed of hearing from a “Salafi” scholar, I was dumbfounded. I went on to read the chapters about Jihaad, Hijrah, and commanding the good and forbidding the evil from the book ad-Durar as-Saniyah.
Any remaining doubts in my head that were instilled by my early days as a “Salafi” (i.e. neo-Salafi) had been removed. Jihaad is truly an individual obligation upon all of us. We do not have to wait for a Khaliifah to establish this obligation of Jihaad. There is nothing wrong with making Takfiir of the rulers and those who judge by other than the Sharicah and make friends with the Disbelievers. I had become a Jihaadi (call it Salafi Jihaadi if you want, or even call it Muslims who believe in adhering to all of the Sharicah, and not just some parts, if you choose).
Interest in Somalia
Anyway, the issue of Somaalia started growing larger by that time and it was becoming clear that the ‘Islaamists’ would soon take over the country. Abu Muxammad (Daniel Maldanado) and Icouldn’t just sit back and watch. We started making our plans. P34
Parting with abu muxammad (Daniel Maldanado) and subsquent turn of events
I told him that if he saw Xasan Turky, whom we thought to be a huge AQ operative, that heshould give him my salaams and I told him how jealous I was that he would meet him first.He was busy tending to his wife and children in the midst of a calamity so I didn’t havemuch time to say goodbyes. And with that we departed our separate ways. (It is worthnoting that I would later learn that Abu Muxammad would be coerced into testifying against Taariq Mehanna his capture and detention. It would seem that different times and places can sometimes affect our character. May Allaah forgive us all.) P60
Somali suspicions and encounter with Fazul Abdullah Mohammed (the interrogator)
I was told to enter the SUV and I did so a bit hesitantly (partly because I thought I was being sent back, and partly because I thought Icould just be killed at any moment). I saw an AK next to the man and I figured I was beingtreated as a spy or something. They told me to bring evidence that someone knows me. Itold them that I’m coming to visit my wife’s grandmother. At one point they asked for a visa and I told them that the Prophet (S) never asked for visas. People who make Hijrah must only say the testimony of faith and I am a Muslim. They couldn’t debate with that but they didn’t accept it. I finally told them that I came for Jihaad but they did not accept my proof of identity. Finally they told me to call my wife and to have her call her grandmother and prove that I’m here to visit them. The only problem with that was that I hadn’t told anyone that I was coming due to security reasons. She was surprised about the whole thing, but she called her grandmother anyway and they came to the airport to get me. The interrogators accepted this but it was clear that they were still very suspicious of me.I later realized that the good cop in that scenario was none other than the famed terrorist Fazul, may Allaah accept him as a martyr. P41
Abu hafs (Tunisian?)
One of the Arab brothers, Abu Xafs (may Allaah accept him as a martyr), had slept under the net and was wearing some thick socks, but still the mosquitoes gave him a run for his money the whole night. He woke up with swollen ankles. P48
When I reached the other side the Arab brother, Abu Xafs (with the swollen ankles) was singing Nashiids for the brothers crowded around him. This guy was absolutely amazing when it came to Nashiids. He would even pretend to re-wind the ‘tape player’ by making the squealing rewind sound. He had been in a Tunisian jail for terror charges (playing with Nitric Acid and other chemicals ha ha), and after being set free by virtue of a French passport he made it to Somalia. When he arrived he began his experimentation immediately and he always traveled with Sulfuric and Nitric Acid wherever he went. It was also there that one of the brothers (who would later be our ‘trainer’ may Allaah protect him) gave me a belt for my gun (which I had for an extremely long time until it broke and caused me great pain). P48
But later on I realized how extremely bait this man was. I even found out that he had asked someone to keep an eye on a Palestinian brother from the Scandinavian countries (may Allaah accept him as a martyr). He said: ‘I want to know where he ends up.’ Very strange guy. P49
The battle of bargal
So Abu Muxammad and I told the Amiir that we wanted the front line. We were also accompanied by three other brothers. One was the Ethiopian brother who became a martyr in Idaley. The other was a British Somali who became a martyr much later on during some fighting in Mogadishu in the last days of Ramadhaan (while having been recently married just prior). The last was an Eritrean brother who was amongst those who became martyrs in Bergal in the North of Somalia when their boat came under attack at the port. I ask Allaah to accept them all.
Abu Talha as-Sudaani & the spy
He was also confronted with his contradictory stories. A Muslim Aid worker, a boat captain, a Mujaahid that wants the frontline, someone who wants to organize outside operations, and his latest: he was sent to Kismaayu to help out with the development of the city. He was told to prove the last story by writing out what types of measures could be taken to improve income. He started writing out a system for fishing licenses and he also suggested that we bring the Chinese to start using our ports for business. The Amiir (Abu Talxah as-Sudaani, may Allaah accept him as a martyr) was not really impressed. p52 (also 60,79,86)
Abu mansur Al yemeni Al bayhani (seasoned jihadi)
The most significant benefit we received from linking up with this group was the collectiveexperience and knowledge of Abu Mansuur al-Yemeni (al-Bayhaani) (may Allaah accept him as a martyr) and Maclim Qaasim. Soon after meeting with them the learning began andit wouldn’t stop until Abu Mansuur left Somaalia. P81
The most interesting class was our tactics course in which Abu Mansuur reenacted for us a famous battle of Khattaab (as he was in Shiishaan for a while and can be seen in one of the videos about Dagestan) and had us take turns leading the battle before dawn. He taught us how to fight in the city, how to set ambushes, and how to plan raids. He taught us the basics of guerrilla warfare and always stressed elements that we would continuously see ignored in future stages of our stay in Somaalia.P84 (see also 86,87,89,90,92,93,99,122)
Accounts of One time allies
Encounter with “reformed” warlord turned Islamist yusuf siyad Indhacade
Ironically, Yusuf Indhacade was also present. Abu Cabdallaah had brought him to us previously after the retreat of the 9 days war and he gave us his testimony that the man had been reformed. He said he came back from Xajj and entered the fighting. He fought with courage and was injured in the arm and now he has renounced his life as a warlord and so forth. Now, on this particular occasion he hugged me, as he did before, and gave me $100 for my marriage and pronounced how much he loved the Muhaajiriin. He eventually ended up fighting for the government of Shariif. P97
Axmad Madobe was with us that night as well. He wasthe ‘Mayor’ of Kismaayu and he was posing as a very hardcore member of the Shabaab atthat time (later it become known to me that in reality he was a very hardcore supporter of his own stomach and then of his own particular tribe). (also see pages – 50,51,64,69,76,78,94)
Memoir Q & A
On “The muslim brotherhood” (al-Ikhwan al muslimeen)
The Ikhwaan …, they usually tend to support tangible steps like fighting up until the first opportunity for selling out comes their way. Then they try to derail the entire movement by entering a merry-go-round of politics that leads only downward; without us even touching on the Sharci ruling for such useless actions.

In the name of Allah, praise be to Allah, and may the blessing and peace of Allah be upon the messenger of Allah, upon his family, companions and follow; dear Muslim brothers (and sisters) everywhere; may the peace and mercy of Allah be upon you.
Indeed the neo crusader allies and apostates gathered (in enmity) upon the Muslim nation of Somalia, as did (in the past the tribes of ) Quraysh, ghatafan and the Arabian polytheist upon a small group of believers in medina.
Allah the Glorified and the Exalted says; “O you who have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you when armies came to [attack] you and We sent upon them a wind and armies [of angels] you did not see. And ever is Allah , of what you do, Seeing.” (Quran 33:9)
The y came from Kenya, Ethiopia, African Union and backing them the crusader NATO alliance, and the foolish loser Obama,“[Remember] when they came at you from above you and from below you, and when eyes shifted [in fear], and hearts reached the throats and you assumed about Allah [various] assumptions # There the believers were tested and shaken with a severe shaking. ” (Quran 33:10 to 33:11), and that is established way of lord the Glorified, (namely) to test his believing servants, to forgive their sins, elevate their status and to make apparent the true state of their souls.
From therein (the test) , reared hypocrisy its head, “And [remember] when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease said, ” Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion,”
“And when a faction of them said, “O people of Yathrib, there is no stability for you [here], so return [home].” And a party of them asked permission of the Prophet, saying, “Indeed, our houses are unprotected,” while they were not exposed. They did not intend except to flee.
“And if they had been entered upon from all its [surrounding] regions and fitnah had been demanded of them, they would have done it and not hesitated over it except briefly.
“And they had already promised Allah before not to turn their backs and flee. And ever is the promise to Allah [that about which one will be] questioned.
“Say, [O Muhammad], “Never will fleeing benefit you if you should flee from death or killing; and then [if you did], you would not be given enjoyment [of life] except for a little.”
“Say, “Who is it that can protect you from Allah if He intends for you an ill or intends for you a mercy?” And they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or any helper.”
“Already Allah knows the hinderers among you and those [hypocrites] who say to their brothers, “Come to us,” and do not go to battle, except for a few”
“Indisposed toward you. And when fear comes, you see them looking at you, their eyes revolving like one being overcome by death. But when fear departs, they lash you with sharp tongues, indisposed toward [any] good. Those have not believed, so Allah has rendered their deeds worthless, and ever is that, for Allah , easy. “
“They think the companies have not [yet] withdrawn. And if the companies should come [again], they would wish they were in the desert among the Bedouins, inquiring [from afar] about your news. And if they should be among you, they would not fight except for a little.”
(Quran 33:12 to 33:20) – (Surat Al-’Aĥzāb The Coalition,other synonyms; The Combined Forces, The Allies, The Confederates – Sahih International)
However Allah bestowed tranquillity, support and reinforcement upon the group of believers, who followed their prophet peace and blessings be upon him, for the tribulations and enmity (from disbelievers) did not achieve anything except increasing them in faith upon faith and certainty upon certainty.
Allah the Glorified and the Exalted says; “There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.”
“And when the believers saw the companies, they said, “This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger spoke the truth.” And it increased them only in faith and acceptance.”
“Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration”
“That Allah may reward the truthful for their truth and punish the hypocrites if He wills or accept their repentance. Indeed, Allah is ever forgiving and Merciful.” (Quran 33:21 to 33:24)
Then, Allah returned (back) the people of disbelief and stubbornness, arrogance and Atheism disappointed and defeated.
“And Allah repelled those who disbelieved, in their rage, not having obtained any good. And sufficient was Allah for the believers in battle, and ever is Allah Powerful and Exalted in Might.”
“And He brought down those who supported them among the People of the Scripture from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts [so that] a party you killed and you took captive a party.”
“And He caused you to inherit their land and their homes and their properties and a land which you have not trodden. And ever is Allah , over all things, competent.” (Quran 33:25 to 33:27)
That is the account of Al ahzab (the Coalition) in the era of the prophet peace and blessings be upon him and his companions my god be pleased with them, which is repeating itself today, it has repeated itself in Iraq in which the coalition of crusade and hypocrisy where defeated, it has also repeated itself in Afghanistan and the same coalition were defeated, it has repeated itself in Somalia years ago and they returned having (earned nothing except) loss and defeat, and every time hypocrisy reveals itself with its hidden wickedness, rearing its ugly head, in the hope of small and cheap gain.
Hypocrisy reared its head before Iraq’s invasion, for the hypocrites met in London and Irbil (Kurdistan), the outcome, was loss them by the grace of Allah, (Hypocrisy) reared its head before the invasion of Afghanistan, and so the hypocrites met in Bonn (Germany), their end by the favour of Allah was ruins, and today, (heads) of hypocrisy meet with their allies in London, the capital of enmity towards Islam since the crusader wars, and their end by the permission and might of Allah except that of those who proceeded them.
Allah the Glorified and the Exalted says; “Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah . So they will spend it; then it will be for them a
regret; then they will be overcome. And those who have disbelieved – unto Hell they will be gathered”
“[This is] so that Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers.”
“Say to those who have disbelieved [that] if they cease, what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them. But if they return [to hostility] – then the precedent of the former [rebellious] peoples has already taken place.”
“And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah . And if they cease – then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.
“But if they turn away – then know that Allah is your protector. Excellent is the protector, and Excellent is the helper.” (Quran -The Spoils of War- 8:36 to 8:40)
The beggar- traitors decedents of abi righal gathered in London, in order to support the crusaders against the monotheists, strengthen the disbelievers against the believers and to permit the enemies of Muslims against Muslim lands.
In London gathered the slaves of Britain, who pledge their loyalty (to Britain), and obey her queen the head of the Church of England. They gathered in London the usual location where the hypocritical traitors are deployed from (into wars), pushed to the front by her (Britain).
Indeed, in the first world war, the British crusader forces invaded the Levant , forcing out the ottomans from Al-Quds (Jerusalem) through the betrayals of Al Sharif Hussein, and their recompense was that Britain reneged on their promises, for they granted Palestine to the Jews, the Levant to the French, and the matter concluded with the Sharif hussain to die in Cyprus, exiled ,imprisoned , with the fury of his master Britain upon him, who betrayed him, an appropriate recompense, for his treachery against the Ottoman state.
It is indeed the same old account of abi righal, for in the same manner that abu righal guided abraha to the way of Mecca, sheikh sharif the new abu righal guides meles zenawi the contemporary abraha to the lands of Muslims.
Indeed Sheikh Sharif is the recurring image of abu righal, and if Allah does not make him successful in (attaining) repentance, he shall suffer the fate abu righal, whom the Arabs used to stone his grave after his demise, “Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment -, Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely.” (Quran 4:138 to4:139)
