IOA digging secret tunnel under the Aqsa Mosque

Officials in the Aqsa foundation that caters for Muslim holy shrines in occupied Palestine have unveiled that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) was secretly digging a tunnel under the Aqsa Mosque that jeopardizes its foundations.
Director of the foundation Farid Al-Haj Yahya affirmed that his institution possesses audiovisual evidence to substantiate the charges, and that it will distribute this evidence to the media in a press conference it will hold in the coming days.
He, furthermore, charged that the Israeli occupation government was aware of those construction works and supported them, adding that Israeli brokers succeeded in convincing a Palestinian Jerusalemite into selling them his small store in Al-Wad street for 60,000 dollars, which is very close to the Mosque.
From that store, Yahya added, digging works of the tunnel started and are still going on in a very secretive manner.

Oil, Not Terrorists, the Reason for US Attack on Somalia

War Criminal :


Oil, Not Terrorists, the Reason for US Attack on Somalia


By Wanjohi Kabukuru

01/22/07 “ICHBlog” — — Just why did the US attack Somalia two weeks ago? Of course, the answer given for the US military intervention and the generally accepted notion is the hunt for terrorists. But is it? Are terrorists the only bone of contention the US has with Somalia? When the US military devised “Operation Restore Hope” in 1993 which was short-lived after they were whipsawed by rag-tag militia in and around Mogadishu, were they fighting the ‘war on terror’?

They couldn’t have been because this war was to start much later, If anything it is a post-Sept 11 phenomenon. So then why did the US bomb ICU extremists in the name of Al Qaeda terrorists and not throughout last year when they occupied Mogadishu?
Just why is Somalia so important to the US, and by extension the big boys of Europe and some Gulf states? A UN Somalia Monitoring Group report released in November 2005 reveals that a dozen countries, namely Yemen, Djibouti, Libya, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, Iran, Syria, Eritrea, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Uganda were all poking their noses into the Somalia pie.

What the UN Somalia Monitoring Group didn’t reveal, however, is that these were not the only countries which were interested in the country. The little known yet well-heeled contact group, consisting of Norway, the US, UK, France and Tanzania (just an appendage) are also deeply enmeshed in Somalia.

While the terrorism theory holds some water, the reality of the factors contributing to the mess in Somalia is pegged on natural resources. Oil and gas are Somalia’s Achilles heel. It is an open secret that four US oil giants are sitting pretty on money-spinning concessions expecting to reap huge windfalls from massive resources of both oil and gas in Somalia.

The story of Somalia and oil goes back to the colonial period. British and Italian geologists first identified oil deposits during that period of imperialism. The first oil wells historically referred to as the Daga Shabell series were dug in the 1960s. Tiny gas discoveries adjacent to Socotra were also noted.

The race for these precious natural resources took a new turn in 1988, when the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Bank, with the support of the governments of Britain, France and Canada and backed by several Western oil companies financed a regional hydrocarbon study of the countries bordering the Red Sea and the Gulf of Eden.

The countries were Somalia, Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia was later dropped, but not before it had been established that within the study area, massive deposits of oil and gas existed. The results of the findings were presented to a three-day American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Eastern Hemisphere group conference, in London in September, 1991. Is there oil in Somalia? Listen to the answer:

“It’s there. There’s no doubt there’s oil there,” said geologist Thomas E. O’Connor, the World Bank’s principal petroleum engineer, who steered the in-depth, three-year study of oil prospects in Somalia’s Gulf of Eden in the northern coastal region.

The study was intended to encourage private investment in the petroleum potential of eight African nations. The conclusions of their findings are quite telling as the geologists put Somalia and Sudan at the top of the list of prospective commercial oil producers.

While presenting their results during the conference, two geologists involved in the study (an American and an Egyptian) reported that the investigation of nine exploratory wells dug in Somalia pointed out that the region was “situated within the oil window, and thus (is) highly prospective for gas and oil.”

Geologist, Z. R. Beydoun, who was involved in the survey, noted that “the geological parameters conducive to the generation, expulsion and trapping of significant amounts of oil and gas” were within the offshore sites. Soon after a race for lucrative deals kicked off in earnest.

Four US oil companies, namely Conoco, Chevron, Amoco and Philips have concessions in nearly two thirds of Somalia. This quartet of oil conglomerates was granted these contracts in the final days of Somalia’s deposed dictator, Siad Barre. The US first military engagement in Somalia was fully supported by Conoco.

Racist : UK Spying On Muslims Who Visit Mecca

Racist : UK Spying On Muslims Who Visit Mecca


Terror watch on Mecca pilgrims


By David Leppard

01/21/07 “The Times” — – THE intelligence agencies are monitoring every Muslim who travels from Britain to Mecca on pilgrimage in a wider effort to piece together intelligence on suspected Al-Qaeda terrorist activity.

A senior Whitehall official has disclosed that the operation targeting trips to the holy city in Saudi Arabia by more than 100,000 British Muslims is part of a trawl by MI5 and MI6 for information about movements of suspected terrorists. It follows evidence that British Islamic terrorists have visited the city before carrying out attacks in Britain and abroad.

The importance of the intelligence operation was one of the reasons given by spy chiefs for maintaining ties with Saudi Arabia when the Saudi government was threatening to break off intelligence ties over a bribery investigation by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) into BAE, Britain’s prime defence contractor.

Sir John Scarlett, the head of MI6, and Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, the director-general of MI5, told Lord Goldsmith, the attorney-general, that Saudi co-operation in the fight against Al-Qaeda was vital.

A well-placed security official said Scarlett and Manningham-Buller used the Mecca surveillance operation as evidence of the need for continuing intelligence ties with the kingdom: “They made it clear to Goldsmith that they were concerned about the implications for national security of losing Saudi co-operation. They said that every British Muslim who makes the pilgrimage to Mecca was monitored.”

This weekend Muslim leaders voiced their unhappiness about the operation. Dr Ghayasuddin Siddiqui, leader of the Muslim parliament, said: “It is absolutely wrong that people who are going to Mecca for entirely religious purposes should be monitored by the security services. It is a sad commentary on Britain’s relations with Saudi Arabia.”

The Mecca operation is thought to have been launched after the July 7 London bombings. MI5 discovered that at least two of the suicide bombers had made the holy trip.

Fake Muslim : Doubt cast on Anani’s terrorist claims

Fake Muslim : Doubt cast on Anani’s terrorist claims

Jihad adviser says story of holy war in Lebanon rings false

Trevor Wilhelm

Windsor Star

Saturday, January 20, 2007

Zachariah Anani, a self-proclaimed former terrorist who now warns against Islam’s so-called teachings of terror against Canada and the West, is imagining his past exploits as a mass murderer, according to a top jihad expert.

Tom Quiggin, Canada’s only court-qualified expert on global jihadism and a former RCMP intelligence and national security expert, said Anani’s tales of terror and murder just don’t jibe with the time and place he claims to have been killing.

“Mr. Anani’s not an individual who rates the slightest degree of credibility, based on the stories that he has told,” said Quiggin, also a Senior Fellow at the Centre of Excellence for National Security in Singapore.

“To have Mr. Anani described as a terrorist grants an impact to his words that simply is not rated.

“Whatever else he may have been, he was not a Muslim terrorist in Lebanon in the early 1970s.

“He may have been a low-level militant, radical, street fighter or insurgent, but he was not a terrorist of any description based on his stories.”

Anani, 49, touched off a controversy last week when he gave an anti-Islamic lecture at Campbell Baptist Church called The Deadly Threat of Islam. He says Islamic doctrine teaches the worship of a god who “strikes with terror” and allows no prisoners in the battle against Christians and Jews.

Anani, now an evangelical Christian, claims to be an expert on the topic because he killed 223 people in Allah’s name, “two-thirds of them by daggers.” He even claims to have killed a man for waking him up at 3 a.m. to pray.

Anani, born in Lebanon, said he joined a militant Muslim group in the early 1970s at age 13, and made his first kill shortly after.

“I was trained to fight and kill Jews, and to hate Christians and Americans,” Anani has said in varying versions of his story.

He said he was soon promoted to troop leader and formed his own regiment, but later met a Christian missionary and converted.

Anani said he was persecuted for his conversion — even his dad hired assassins to kill him.

He said he was soon promoted to troop leader and formed his own regiment, but later met a Christian missionary and converted.

Anani said he was persecuted for his conversion — even his dad hired assassins to kill him — and he was technically dead for seven minutes after narrowly escaping a beheading. He fled to the West and moved to Windsor about 10 years ago. His wife and three daughters joined him three years later.

Even in Canada, Anani said he’s been physically attacked, and his house and car have been burned in Windsor for speaking out against Islam.

POLICE LACK RECORDS

Staff. Sgt. Ed McNorton said Windsor police don’t have a record of physical attacks against Anani, and his house wasn’t burned.

McNorton said someone did torch his car, but it wasn’t for the reasons Anani has claimed.

“There is nothing in the report we have to indicate it was in retaliation to his religious beliefs,” said McNorton.

Anani’s bio also states he lectured at Princeton University. Cass Cliatt, Princeton’s media relations manager, said that never happened. She said Anani was scheduled to lecture there in late 2005 with the Walid Shoebat Foundation. But the event was cancelled and the foundation held a news conference at a nearby hotel.

Anani has refused several requests from The Star to revisit his past in detail.

Following a sermon Thursday night from Campbell Baptist Church Pastor Donald McKay — Anani was scheduled to speak but his lecture was cancelled — he again refused to answer questions.

“I’ve already spoken enough about that,” he said. “There is no need to repeat that, especially when there is people waiting to see me. So make it quick please…. If there are no more essential questions, please, let’s wrap it up.”

But Quiggin said there are some important details in Anani’s story that don’t add up.

“It appears to be that Mr. Anani is nothing more than an extremist who is trying to create an imaginative history from a contemporary set of fears and stories,” said Quiggin. “Mr. Anani’s myths that he has built up around himself lack validity on a number of key points.”

One key point, he said, is Anani’s claim that he killed 223 people.

FIGHTING BEGAN IN 1975

Anani has said he’s 49 years old, which would mean he was born in 1957 or 1958, said Quiggin. If he joined his first militant group when he was 13, it would have been in 1970 or 1971. But the fighting in Lebanon did not begin in earnest until 1975, Quiggin said.

“His story of having made kills shortly after he joined and having made 223 kills overall is preposterous, given the lack of fighting during most of the time period he claims to have been a fighter,” Quiggin said. “He also states he left Lebanon to go to Al-Azhar University at the age of 18, which would mean he went to Egypt in 1976. In other words, according to himself, he left Lebanon within a year of when the fighting actually started.”

He also pointed to a story on WorldNetDaily in which Walid Shoebat, another ex-terrorist and friend of Anani, also claims to have killed 223 people, two-thirds of them with daggers.

“What a coincidence,” Quiggin said.

Quiggin said Anani’s description of himself as a Muslim terrorist also “defies logic” based on the time frame.

“Most the groups involved in the fighting in Lebanon were secular and tended to be extreme leftists or Marxists,” he said.

Quiggin said religious-based terrorism as part of the warring in Lebanon didn’t begin until after 1979, following the revolution in Iran, the Soviet attack on Afghanistan and the attack on the Grand Mosque in Mecca by Sunni Muslim extremists.

Anani’s claim to have survived a beheading attempt is also questionable, said Quiggin.

“This was not a common practice in Lebanon at any time and again it appears as though he is attempting to build up his past mythology by playing on current Iraqi-based fears,” Quiggin said.

YOUTH OF ALI

He also questioned Anani’s assertion that the militant group he killed with was called the Youth of Ali, named after the prophet Muhammad’s cousin.

Quiggin said a group called Youth of Ali wasn’t even known to have been in existence during the civil war period in Lebanon that Anani is talking about.

“This story makes less sense as it goes along,” said Quiggin.

That is one detail Anani was willing to discuss Thursday, when he revised his story to say the group wasn’t named after the prophet’s relative.

“Actually, Ali was the top-notch guy in the area,” said Anani.

“That’s why they called it that. The Youth of Ali is the wrong word. You could say the Boys of Ali. That means the guy who was leading the group in the area.”

He said the group no longer exists.

“They were a small fragment,” said Anani. “It’s a more minor group. It was a long time ago. ”

THREAT DOUBTED

Michael Bell, a former Canadian ambassador to Israel, Egypt and Jordan, doesn’t buy Zachariah Anani’s claim that Muslims pose a risk to Canadian society. He said new groups were often looked on with suspicion in Canadian history.

“We have to take a long run perspective on this and not be spooked,” Bell said. “For Muslims in Canada, this is not a primary preoccupation. They’re a group of people looking for a place within Canadian society. I don’t agree Islam in Canada is an overwhelmingly united force bent on very specific and unacceptable goals.”

9/11 : Yemeni Guantanamo five years ex-detainee speaks out

The image above extracted from Al-Jazeera documentary on Guantanamo. Al-Jazerra team went to Guantanamo to make a documentary about how the prisoners being treated in this notorious prison, but for sure the team’s movement was restricted and they were escorted by a minder.

The minders took the team to an empty “model” prison, where all the facilities were available and there was even a Quran put by the window.

For westerners there is nothing wrong with the picture, but for Arabic readers …look very close to the text on the Quran….. Yes it is a Quran but put upside-down, which shows that the cell was arranged put together as just for the media show, a real model which is reality didn’t exist…..but that is not my main post here.

Yemeni five years ex-detainee Al-Assadi speaks about his own experience in Guantanamo:

Families demand closure of Guantanamo: They cut someone’s hand while they could have treated it, Or they refused to treat some patients, such as Sami al-Hajj, an Al Jazeera cameraman arrested in Afghanistan in 2001…..

….. People in there said that we did not have humans’ or animals’ rights, because ‘we were devils and devils have no rights….. they threatened to send the men to a dictator-run country.
