Nigeria: Terror Leader Calls For Global Jihad Against America, Britain And Israel For The ‘Cause Of Allah Everywhere’

https://i0.wp.com/4.bp.blogspot.com/-dSvGRaj-hCw/TxhPokWfVmI/AAAAAAAABG4/9EfTbjr5z1g/s1600/20110727_IslamShadow.jpgBy Tim Cocks, Reuters – “The leader of Nigerian Islamist sect Boko Haram praises jihadist movements across the globe and singled out the United States, Britain, Israel and Nigeria as enemies in a new video, according to a translation by the SITE monitoring service.

The 39-minute video ‘Glad Tidings, O Soldiers of Allah’, posted in a jihadist forum, features a speech by sect leader Abubakar Shekau with an unusually international focus for a group that has often seemed more pre-occupied with local gripes.

Unlike previous video speeches, which he delivered in his native Hausa tongue, the one posted on Thursday is in Arabic. Shekau pledges solidarity with Islamist fighters everywhere.

‘Nigeria and other crusaders, meaning America and Britain, should witness, and the Jews of Israel who are killing the Muslims in Palestine should witness … that we are with our mujahideen brothers in the cause of Allah everywhere,’ he said, according to SITE’s translation.

The video appears to confirm the fears of security agents that Boko Haram has ambitions to join forces with other Islamist groups pursuing a more explicitly global, anti-Western agenda – like al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), based in Mali…

The video wishes ‘glad tidings’ on Islamist warriors in ‘Islamic Maghreb’ (the Sahara) and ‘the Islamic State in Mali’, as well as Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen and ‘usurped Palestine’.

He list ‘martyrs’ in the global fight against world powers like Britain and the United States, including Osama bin-Laden.

‘Don’t think that jihad stops with the death of imams, because imams are individuals,’ he tells them. ‘Think how many sheikhs and men were martyred … Did jihad stop? No. Jihad doesn’t stop until Allah wills it to be stopped.'” Read more.

Flashback: Boko Haram: Our Goal is to Eliminate Followers of Christ – “Terrorist organisation Boko Haram has issued a statement making clear that its goal is to eliminate followers of Christ from Nigeria and establish an Islamic state. ‘The Nigerian state and Christians are our enemies and we will be launching attacks on the Nigerian state and its security apparatus as well as churches until we achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state in place of the secular state … We are responsible for the suicide attack on a church in Jos and also another attack on another church in Biu,’ a spokesman for the group, Abul Qaqa, is said to have told reporters in the northeastern city of Maiduguri over the phone.” Read more.

    couple things I don’t understand. They are united, calling muslims everywhere to kill us all. But over here the number of christians and churchs everywhere are uniting with them in interfaith worship. Now if we worship. The same god why is Jesus telling them to kill us all? Well it’s obviuos that we don’t. Worship the same god. Next question: why when translating does the media insist the muslims shout god is great, instead of allah is great? Just things that make you go huh?
