Al-Qaeda en Australia

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Así es: Al Qaeda inttentó reclutar a un blanco (o sea, «caucasiano»…) australiano como un «agente durmiente»


( – A court case in Australia has revealed that al Qaeda tried to recruit a Caucasian Australian as a «sleeper agent,» an allegation that focuses new attention on the risks posed by individuals who blend into Western societies while doing the bidding of terrorist masters abroad.

Joseph Thomas admitted to Australian police interrogators that an associate of Osama bin Laden, Khalid bin Attash, informed him the al Qaeda chief was interested in having «an Aussie … a white boy,» the Supreme Court in Melbourne was told. Prosecutor Nick Robinson said the conversation with bin Attash had taken place in Pakistan, where Thomas was staying at a safehouse after undergoing training at an al Qaeda camp in Afghanistan called al-Farooq in mid-2001.

Thomas also admitted to police that he accepted $3,500 in cash and an air ticket from bin Attash to return to Australia, where he was asked to work for bin Laden and keep a watch on military installations.

Lo que ha ganado Arabia Saudí con las caricaturas

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

De The Counterterrorism Blog:

In fact, as a brave Algerian editorialist from Le Soir D’Algerie pointed out Saudi Arabia had two major opportunities to start this campaign in December: one was the Hajj (the Pilgrimage which millions of Muslim attend), and the other one was the meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Conference which took place in Riyadh. The Conference adopted a resolution to create an Observatory against Islamophobia citing the example of the Danish cartoons but that was it. One of Saudi King Abdullah’s goals is to unite the Muslims of the World and defend them. This controversy played well in the classical scheme of Muslims being oppressed by the West. That is why the Wahhabi regime took the lead by being the first country to recall its Ambassador in Denmark and starting the boycott of Danish products. Also hardliner Interior Minister Prince Nayef called on international religious institutions and especially the Vatican to step in to defend the Muslims (which by the way the Vatican agreed to do). He added defending the Muslim outcry, «If freedom has reached this degree, I think it is unacceptable no matter what».

Precisamente sobre la Organización de la Conferencia Islámica, encuentro en el blog Alphabet City los puntos que acordaron sobre la «islamofobia» (ya hablamos de este tema aunque no habíamos tenido conocimiento de los puntos acordados en concreto):

On Tuesday, ambassadors and permanent representatives from the 57 Islamic countries that comprise the OIC General Secretariat met in Jeddah and unanimously approved five points that form a «proactive OIC strategy [that would] project the true image of Islam and Muslims [to] the West» and «increase cooperation with the international institutions [EU, UN] with a view to ensuring the adoption of political, legal and cultural-social frameworks in combating defamation and stereotyping of Muslims and their religion.»

  • the adoption by the EU of necessary legislative measures through the European Parliament against Islamophobia;
  • making joint efforts by the EU and the OIC to adopt UN Resolution on the lines of existing UN Resolution 60/150 (Combating defamation of religions) which should prohibit defamation of all Prophets and faiths;
  • the adoption of a code of ethics for the European media;
  • the adoption of an International Communication Media Order by the United Nations which should cover a definition of freedom of speech in case of religious symbols;
  • the inclusion of an operative paragraph prohibiting blasphemy, defamation of religions and incitement to hatred in the text of Human Rights Council resolution presently being negotiated.

¿Y que tal un observatorio contra la NO-muslimitud-fobia que parecen tener tantos musulmanes? Excluyendo a los pocos valientes Y moderados que hay por ahí, como el articulista mencionado…

Un clérigo paquistaní ha ofrecido una recompensa por la cabeza del dibujante de las caricaturas

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Lo leo en NoisyRoom.Net:

A Pakistani cleric has offered a 1.5 million rupee (£19,400) reward and a car for anyone who kills the cartoonist who drew the Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

Another Islamist leader has been put under house detention, amid fears of more deadly demonstrations, officials said.

The cleric did not name the cartoonist.

Several cartoonists submitted images to the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which first published them.

Meanwhile, police arrested 125 prophet cartoons protesters for violating a ban on rallies in eastern Pakistan, amid expectations of more demonstrations around the country in the wake of riots that have killed five people this week.

About 300 police swooped down on the protesters, who gathered at a roundabout in Multan city, chanting, «We are slaves of the prophet,» and trampling on a Danish flag, said Sharif Zafar, a police official in Multan.

Protesters shouted «Death to Musharraf» as they were bundled into two police buses.

Ha ofrecido 19.400 libras (unos 30.000 euros más o menos) y un coche por matar a un caricaturista…

Muy interesante lo que cantaban: «Somos esclavos del profeta»…

Recrutar terroristas no es delito si van a Irak

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Otro juez italiano al que le tienen que comprobar las neuronas:

«The recruitment of volunteers to fight in Iraq against American soldiers cannot be considered under any point of view a terrorist activity.» These words, which would have been more fitting in the speech of a radical anti-war militant, were the core of the ruling with which a Milan Court of Appeals acquitted three men linked to Ansar al Islam (the motivation of the November 2005 ruling were made public only recently and excerpts from it can be found here).

As shocking as it might sound, this is nothing new in Italy. The Court of Appeals, in fact, only upheld the first degree ruling of another Milan-based judge, Clementina Forleo. In January 2005, Mrs. Forleo decided that the men were indeed part of a network that was recruiting fighters for the Iraqi conflict, but that the operations taking place in Iraq constituted «guerrilla warfare» and not terrorism. In her view, «Ansar al Islam was structured as an Islamic combatant organization, with a militia trained for guerrilla activities and financed by groups in Europe and orbiting in the sphere of Islamic fundamentalism, without having goals of a terrorist nature, goals probably shared by only some of its members.» Because one of the men on trial, Mohammed Tahir Hammid, conveniently declared that he did not agree with Ansar al Islam’s tactic of using suicide bombers, Forleo considered Ansar al Islam to be a «heterogeneous» organization whose members had conflicting opinions on the valid means to use in fighting enemy forces.

Therefore, according to the judge, Ansar al Islam could not be considered a terrorist organization as a whole and those who recruit and raise funds for it cannot be considered terrorists. Two men, while found guilt of minor crimes such as document forging, were acquitted of all the charges involving terrorism. The third, Mohammed Daki (who, incidentally, happened to be a close friend of top 9/11 planners Ramzi Binalshibh and Said Bahaji while living in Hamburg) was cleared of all charges and now lives happily in his native Morocco (after the Italian Ministry of Interiors deported him).

Hmmm, claro es que matar personas usando terroristas suicidas es un detalle tan nimio, tan chiquitín, que…

Últimas noticias: una manifestación en Libia contra las caricaturas acaba con al menos 9 muertos

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Leído en la BBC:

Hundreds of demonstrators in Libya have clashed with police after trying to storm an Italian consulate during protests over the Muhammad cartoons.

An official at the consulate in the city of Benghazi told Italy’s Ansa news agency that at least nine people had been killed and 55 injured.

Consulate windows were reportedly broken and nearby cars set alight.

Ansa said the rally had been a response to recent remarks by Italian minister Roberto Calderoli about the cartoons.

«Vuestros días están contados. Sufrireis la cólera de Alá»

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Otro mensaje pacífico leído en Christian News via IBA:

So far, the violent riots that have erupted throughout the Muslim world over the Mohammed cartoons have not been repeated here in the U.S.

But yesterday in New York City, one radical Islamic group was preaching a message that is anything but peaceful.

It wasn’t Pakistan or Gaza. It was Manhattan’s east side.The group calls itself the Islamic Thinker’s Society-ITS, for short. The purpose of the demonstration was to condemn the now infamous cartoons.

But there was another message as well: that Islam will one day dominate the world.

One ITS member said, «We are here to tell you that there is nothing you can do–and that your days are numbered…all of you who disbelieve: speak good, or Allah will silence you

The protest began in front of the Danish Consulate. ITS members stomped on Danish flags and warned Denmark that it would suffer «Allah’s wrath.» The group then moved to the German Consulate, where they trampled on German and Israeli flags–and called non-Muslims «scum.»

Amenazas, insultos… Y luego encima protestan por las caricaturas…

Interesante cuestión

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Leo en Desde Sefarad:

Richard Cohen en el WaPo:

Hamas no es solo una organización terrorista antisionista o anti-Israel. Es también profunda y abiertamente antijudía. Sus principios, adoptados el 18 de agosto de 1988, no se limitan a plantear el objetivo de la destrucción de Israel, sino también de los judíos.

¿Entendido? Bien, ahora:

¿Qué tal le sentará a Putin que nos reunamos con los rebeldes chechenos?

Pero no sólo ha sido Putin: es que Francia también ha apoyado la reunión:

La France apporte son soutien à l’initiative russe d’inviter le Hamas à la table des discussions. «Nous avons le même objectif», dit Paris, à savoir amener le mouvement radical palestinien à reconnaître l’Etat hébreu et à renoncer à la violence.

O sea, los franceses y los rusos, ambos con un éxito maravilloso a la hora de clamar, los primeros a los del GIA y a lso «pacíficos» manifestantes de noviembre, y los segundos a los chechenos, van a convencer a Hamas de que reconozca a Israel y renuncie a la violencia.

Je le doute, Monsieur… Y lo dudo porque mientras salgan vídeos (es de febrero de 2006) como este es un poco difícil:

Los terroristas de Hamas dejan varios mensajes a los judíos: entre otros este:

«My message to the loathed Jews is that there is no god but Allah, we will chase you everywhere! We are a nation that drinks blood, and we know that there is no blood better than the blood of Jews. We will not leave you alone until we have quenched our thirst with your blood, and our children’s thirst with your blood. We will not leave until you leave the Muslim countries.»

Traduzco: «Mi mensaje para los odiados judíos es que no hay más Dios que Alá, ¡os daremos caza donde esteis! Somos una nación que bebe sangre y sabemos que no hay mejor sangre que la de los judíos. No os dejaremos en paz mientras no hayamos saciado nuestra sed de sangre, y la sed de sangre de nuestros hijos. No os dejaremos mientras no dejeis los países musulmanes«.

Hmm, muy pacíficos. Más mensajes de esta calaña podeis verlos en IBA.

Para celebrar bien San Valentín…

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

han confirmado la fatwa contra Salman Rushdie:

Tehran, Iran, Feb. 14 A religious edict issued by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini against the life of British author Salman Rushdie still stands, Iran’s official state news agency reported on the anniversary of the decree.

On February 14, 1989, Khomeini issued a fatwa calling on all Muslims to kill Rushdie for writing the controversial novel The Satanic Verses.

In a statement carried by the official news agency, the government-run body Martyrs Foundation announced, «The fatwa by Imam Khomeini in regards to the apostate Salman Rushdie will be in effect forever».

«The book The Satanic Verses was the incarnation of the satanic plots of the World Arrogance (United States) and the occupying Zionists which appeared through the sleeves of this apostate«, the statement said.

One of Iran’s state «bonyads», or foundations, has offered a $2.8 million bounty on Rushdie’s life.

Bueno, eso el que lo haya podido celebrar porque en Malasia han «aconsejado» que no se celebre. Pero lo mejor es la razón:

State Islam Hadhari Development Committee Deputy Chairman, Muhammad Ramli Nuh said celebrating the Day could be regarded as recognising the enemies of Islam because Valentine or Valentinus took part in planning and attacking Cordoba, once a well-known centre of Islam in Spain, causing its downfall….

Ejem: Porque San Valentín tomó parte en la toma de Córdoba, «entonces un conocido centro del Islam en España, causando su caída». Lo que es una absoluta BARBARIDAD porque San Valentín vivió en el Imperio Romano:

El amor de Dios reina en el corazón de todos los santos, pero hay uno que tiene la dicha de ser el patrón de los enamorados: San Valentín. Según dice una tradición, San Valentín arriesgaba su vida para casar cristianamente a las parejas durante el tiempo de persecución. Por fin entregó su vida en el martirio, que es la máxima manifestación del amor.

Sí, ya sabemos que quieren Córdoba, pero de verdad, no hace falta que tergiversen la historia. ¿O sí?

Condolezza, Abu Graib y la Alianza de Civilizaciones

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Sobre esta cuestión, simplemente remito al blog Barcepundit, de Francoalemán:

SI EL TEXTO COMPLETO de la carta de apoyo de EEUU a la Alianza de Civilizaciones de Zapatero es realmente este que publica El Mundo («We expect to support selected alliance project compatible with our own program goals»; «I eagerly anticipate the higt level group,s final report and the implementation of its proposed work plan so that we can identify specific project to which the united states could make a contribution»), poco apoyo le veo. Muy tibio, y diplomáticamente vacuo (como la mayoría de las declaraciones diplomáticas, dicho sea de paso).

Sistani manda dinero a los ayatolás

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

El líder religioso Chií, Alí Sistani, considerado un «moderado» dentro de Irak, resulta que tenía lazos con Irán durante la dictadura de Saddam y todavía sigue mandando dinero (millones de dólares al mes…) a Irán (del Wall Street Journal via

Iraq’s most prominent Shiite religious leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, maintained close ties with Tehran during Saddam Hussein’s rule and today channels millions of dollars monthly into Islamic research centers and theological schools in Iran, according to his Web site, demonstrating the growing convergence of Iran’s and Iraq’s religious elite.

Y Oriana Fallaci vuelve a tener razón…

Las caricaturas 5 meses después

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 17/febrero/2006

Ya contamos la muerte del Padre Santoro en este blog. Bien pues, han asesinado a un pescador hindú por las caricaturas:

Dubai, Feb 15 (PTI) An Indian sailor was allegedly beaten to death by his colleagues on board a Norwegian oil tanker in the international waters off the coast of Fujairah in the UAE following an argument over the cartoon row.

A fight ensued among the seamen after an argument over the cartoon issue, causing the death of one sailor, a media report said.

Official sources confirmed the death of 31-year-old Sudheer Nonia Jagannathan, hailing from Mumbai, but refused to comment on the issue.

«Le pegaron hasta la muerte por sus colegas a bordo de un petrolero en aguas internacionales en la costa de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, después de una discusión sobre las caricturas». Ante todo, saber encajar la crítica de otros…

El bloguero Sandmonkey informa que el editor del periódico egipcio que publicó las caricaturas ha dejado Egipto, diciendo que volverá con nuevas noticias:

Abdel Hamouda, the editor of Al Fagr newspaper, the one that published the cartoons back in october, has officially left the country for an undisclosed number of days in a journalistic investigation mission according to this week’s edition of the newspaper and will come back «soon» with «journalistic surprises». This, of course, has absolutely nothing with the fact that an onslaught of phone calls from the international media demanding that he verify the story that he did indeed publish those cartoon in Ramadan with nothing happening to be true. He probably didn’t look at his Jordanian counterparts- who have been in jail since they published those cartoons and were just allowed to be released on bail– and think «Shit, that could be me. I better get out of here!». No, that probably never happend at all, and this is all just a co-incidence!

En el mismo post nos informa de que ha recibido muchas llamadas preguntándole si de verdad había publicado esas caricaturas…

En Paquistán, han muerto 3 personas y se han producidpo numerosos daños materiales durante las protestas por las caricaturas:

More than 70,000 people flooded the streets of the northwestern city of Peshawar, said Saeed Wazir, a senior police officer. The massive crowd went on a rampage, torching businesses and fighting police, who struck back with tear gas and batons. A bus terminal operated by South Korea’s Sammi Corp. was torched, police said.

Protesters burned a KFC restaurant, three movie theaters and the offices of the main mobile phone company in the country. A Norwegian mobile phone company’s offices were also ransacked. Gunfire was heard near the burning KFC, as police tried to clear people from a main street, witnesses said.

An 8-year-old boy died after being struck in the face by a bullet fired by a protester, police officer Shahid Khan said. A 25-year-old man was killed by an electric cable that was snapped by gunfire, said the man’s cousin, Jehangir Khan.

At least 45 people were being treated for injuries in Peshawar’s two state-run hospitals, Khan and witnesses said….

Hundreds of Afghan refugees joined the protest in Peshawar, the capital of the conservative North West Frontier Province.Many chanted «Death to Denmark!» and «Hang those who drew the insulting cartoons!» Others burned Danish flags and effigies of the Danish prime minister.

Rioting also broke out Wednesday in the northwestern town of Tank, near the South Waziristan tribal region where security officials have said al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters are hiding. Protesters set fire to 30 shops selling CDs, DVDs, and videos, said Attiq Wazir, a local police official. Suspected Islamic militants had warned music shops to close, witnesses said.

Y la traca final:

In Muslim-majority Malaysia, the government ordered Guang Ming, the country’s third largest Chinese-language newspaper, to halt publication of its evening edition for two weeks as punishment for printing a photograph in which the cartoons were visible.

Al-Jazzeera informa de que han encarcelado a más periodistas por este asunto:

Algeria and Yemen have arrested journalists working for newspapers that have reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that led to protests around the world.

On Sunday, Algeria closed two newspapers and arrested their editors for printing the images of the cartoons of the Prophet.

Kahel Bousaad and Berkane Bouderbala, respectively editors of the pro-Islamist weeklies, Errisala and Iqraa, were detained last week and will appear before an investigating judge in Algiers on Monday, staff of the two Arabic newspapers said.

A member of Iqraa’s staff said: «The cartoons published in our weekly were [deliberately] fogged. They were accompanied by an article denouncing them.»…

The Algerian authorities have condemned the cartoons and urged the Danish government to punish those behind their publication….

Yemen detained three journalists on Sunday and is seeking a fourth after closing three publications that printed the cartoons. Al-Hurriya, Yemen Observer and al-Rai al-Aam were shut and their case sent to prosecutors.

The officials said those detained are Mohammad al-Asaadi, the editor-in-chief of the English-language Yemen Observer, Akram Sabra, the managing editor of al-Hurriya weekly newspaper and reporter Yehiya al-Abed of Hurriya.

The prosecution has issued a warrant for Kamal al-Aalafi, the editor-in-chief of al-Rai al-Aam….

Pero es que en la Universidad de Illionois han suspendido a los integrantes de un periódico escolar por publicar las caricaturas (via Michelle Malkin):

The editor in chief of a student-led newspaper serving the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been suspended for printing cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that, when published in Europe, enraged Muslims and led to violent protests in the Middle East and Asia.

Editor Acton Gorton and his opinions editor, Chuck Prochaska, were relieved of their duties at The Daily Illini on Tuesday while a task force investigates «the internal decision-making and communication» that led to the publishing of the cartoons, according to a statement by the newspaper’s publisher and general manager, Mary Cory.

Gorton said he expects to be fired at the conclusion of the investigation, which is expected to take two weeks….

«This is not a publicity stunt, and this wasn’t an easy decision,» said Gorton, who said he spent three years in the Army as a medic and paratrooper before college. «I was stressed and couldn’t sleep at night. But I just felt it was an important issue to address in the newspaper.»

Al editor jefe le han suspendido, le están investigando y espera que le echen cuando termine la investigación. No sólo hay dhimmies en Europa.

La noticia «graciosa» del día viene de Irán, país que ha decidido cambiar el nombre de las famosas galletas danesas por las caricaturas:

TEHRAN, Iran – Not content with pelting European embassies with Molotov cocktails to protest against cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, Iranians have decided to rename the «Danish pastries» relished by this nation of cake lovers.

From now on, the sweet, flaky pastries which dominate the shelves in Iran’s cake shops will be known as «Roses of the Prophet Muhammad,» the official IRNA news agency reported as pressure on Denmark over the cartoons took on a new dimension.

«No one is allowed to make fun of our beloved and respected prophet,» Hassan Nasserzadeh, a cake shop owner in central Tehran, told Reuters.

Y se llamarán «las rosas del Profeta Mahoma». Particularmente me parece un nombre un poco cursi para unas galletas de mantequilla, pero bueno, me surge otra pregunta: ¿y el boicot? ¿o van a hacer las galletas en Irán?…

Por último, de Australia nos llega esta noticia:

When asked whether he regretted his decision to publish the Mohammed cartoons, in light of the firestorm they unleashed in the Islamic world and threats against him, Flemming said it was like asking a rape victim whether she regretted wearing a short skirt.

Nota: Flemming Rose es el editor jefe del Jyllands-Posten…
