Hey, it’s just Al Qaeda, what could go wrong?
Al Qaeda’s North African wing condemned Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi and expressed solidarity with protesters revolting against his rule, the SITE Intelligence Group quoted it as saying on Thursday.
Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb accused Gaddafi of hiring African mercenaries and ordering aircraft to fire on protestors, SITE said, citing a jihadist statement issued on Thursday.
AQIM urged Muslim scholars, thinkers and journalists to support the Libyan people in their uprising.
“We were pained by the carnage and the cowardly massacres carried out by the killer of innocents Gaddafi against our people and our unarmed Muslim brothers who only came to lift his oppression, his disbelief, his tyranny and his might,” AQIM was quoted as saying in the statement.
……”We call upon the Muslim Libyan people to have steadfastness and patience, and we incite them to continue their struggle and revolution and to escalate it to oust the criminal tyrant,” the group said.
The “revolution” Al Qaeda and their Muslim Brotherhood pals have in mind, involves a Sharia Law-based Caliphate. We are witnessing the Middle East cesspool go from bad to worse. This cannot be said enough: If you think the current regimes are bad, just wait and see how bad the “transformation” can be.
This will not end well.
