Somalia Islamists Join Terror Networks
afrol News
Somalia's Islamist movement, which controls most of the country, is becoming increasingly present on foreign websites propagating jihad against the non-believers and presenting the war in Somalia as part of a global confrontation. In unofficial videos from the Islamists secret training camps, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is praised. The Mogadishu-based Islamic Court Union and its Islamist militias are getting stronger present in the Internet, using a two-faced strategy. Official statements from court leaders, also available from the Union's website, demonstrate moderate viewpoints. The "unofficial" web campaign, however, is much wider and links the Islamists closely to the world's most radical jihadist groups. A new Somali jihadist video is doing the rounds in Mogadishu and on radical websites used to propagate the messages of al Qaeda. It shows Islamist fighters training for war at a secret camp and specifically glorifies Osama bin Laden. Although not officially endorsed by the Islamic Courts, the militia's video features some of their key figures, such as Mogadishu security chief Abdullahi Maalim Ali - also know as Abu Utayba. "We are the new Afghanistan," it is stated on the propaganda video, directed at jihadists all over the world. The propaganda piece invites potential martyrs from any place to come to Somalia and join the fight against non-believers.

Thai Separatist Leader: JI May Have Infiltrated South
Int'l Herald Tribune/AP
Al-Qaida-linked regional terror network Jemaah Islamiyah may have infiltrated southern Thailand, where young fighters are unwilling to negotiate in their bloody battle for an Islamic state, a separatist leader said, according to a news report. Wan Kadir Che Wan, the leader of the Bersatu rebel group, told Al-Jazeera network from an undisclosed location outside Thailand, that violence was unlikely to end as the younger separatists believe they have the upper hand — and because they have spies inside the Thai government. "As far as I understand ... they have been collecting the weapons for a long time in preparation and also the money," said Wan Kadir, according to the report. "The main advantage of this situation is that ... they are inside the Thai government itself so they know many things." More than 1,800 people have died from violence in Thailand's three southernmost, Muslim-majority provinces — Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat — since an Islamic insurgency flared up in January 2004. Most were victims of bombings and shootings blamed on the insurgents.

Jihad Recruiter Gets Life Sentence in Indonesia
People's Daily Online (China)
An Islamic teacher believed to have recruited suicide bombers was convicted of terrorism by an Indonesian court Wednesday and sentenced to a lifetime jail term. Subur Sugiarto, 33, is proven guilty of the primary charges of sheltering the country's top terror fugitive Noordin Moh Top, the tightly-guarded District Court in the Central Java capital of Semarang heard. Malaysian-born Noordin is the suspected brains behind a series of bombings that killed more than 230 people since 2002. Sugiarto, alias Abu Mujahid, is also convicted of illegal arms possession. He was arrested in January and brought to trials along with three other militants. Police believed that Sugiarto was the key aide of Noordin, whose hunting remains fruitless so far. He has allegedly recruited people to launch suicide bombings, including three young men from Central Java and West Java who carried out triple suicide attacks on Bali island last October, in which 19 people were killed.

NJ Man Charged in TV Terrorism Case
Newsday/AP
A New Jersey man was charged Monday with conspiring with a Pakistani businessman to support terrorists by enabling customers to obtain satellite broadcasts of a Hezbollah television station. Saleh Elahwal, 53, of Matawan, N.J., is the second man charged in a case that has drawn scrutiny over how far the government can go in claiming someone is aiding terrorist groups. In August, Javed Iqbal of Staten Island was charged with helping his customers receive broadcasts of al Manar, which was designated by the U.S. government this year as a global terrorist entity. Al Manar, launched in 1991, features news programming that promotes Hezbollah's positions and shows statements from the terror group and speeches from its leader, the government has said. Iqbal has been subject to electronic monitoring since he was released on $250,000 bail over the objections of the government after his initial arrest. At the time, the charges against him carried a potential prison term of five years. Iqbal and Elahwal could each face up to 110 years in prison if they were convicted of all 11 counts in the rewritten indictment unsealed Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. The charges resulted after FBI agents searched two storefronts in Brooklyn where Iqbal worked and at his Staten Island residence, where multiple satellite dishes helped him distribute the broadcasts through a Brooklyn company called HDTV Limited, prosecutors said. The indictment accused the men of carrying out the scheme from September 2005 through August.

Lebanese Cabinet Minister Is Assassinated
Washington Times/AP
Prominent anti-Syrian Christian politician Pierre Gemayel was assassinated in a suburb of Beirut on Tuesday, his Phalange Party radio station and Lebanon's official news agency reported. The slaying will certainly heighten political tensions in Lebanon, where the leading Muslim Shiite party Hezbollah has threatened to topple the government if it does not get a bigger say in Cabinet decision-making. Gemayel was shot in his car in Jdeideh, a Christian neighborhood, his constituency on the northern edge of Beirut, witnesses said. A car rammed his vehicle from behind and then a gunman stepped out and shot him at point-blank range, they said. Gemayel was rushed to a nearby hospital, according to the Lebanese Broadcasting Corp. and the Voice of Lebanon, the Phalange Party mouthpiece. The party radio later said he was dead, as did the National News Agency. In Washington, the State Department denounced the assassination as terrorism and an attempt to intimidate the governing coalition in Beirut. Saad Hariri, leader of the anti-Syrian parliamentary majority, broke off a televised news conference after hearing Gemayel had been shot. In an interview with CNN, Hariri praised him as "a friend, a brother to all of us" and appeared to break down after saying: "We will bring justice to all those who killed him."

Commentary

On Iraq: Listen Carefully to General Abizaid

New Media Journal/Dr. Whalid Phares

As the debate in the United States is still raging on the Iraq War – and as many believe that the last legislative elections were a message from the American public to change the course in that conflict – the question remains, how. American politicians and their academic and activist advisors are rushing in all directions to search for that magic answer with most of the debaters parroting basically two main theses advanced by very few authors.

Spotlight

A Rewarding Month for Al-Qaeda and its Allies
Jamestown Foundation/Michael Scheuer
It has become common in the United States and the West to acknowledge the difficulty of integrating and making sense of the disparate, geographically diverse events that occur in the war on terrorism and to assess which side is winning. The first half of November, however, provides an opportunity for at least a snapshot assessment that suggests that, at this moment, al-Qaeda and its allies are winning the larger conflict. Let us first look at the major developments of the last fortnight that indicate the continued vitality of al-Qaeda and the jihadi movement.
