Somalia Islamists call Obama to convert or else

… they will declare war on America and attack mainland USA.

When Americans are having their morning coffee and getting ready for the new week today, they turn on the TV and…

Somalia to Obama: Convert to Islam or America gets it

The leader of Somalia’s main armed group al-Shabab has threatened to attack the United States if Barack Obama, the US president, does not convert to Islam.

“We tell the American President Barack Obama to embrace Islam before we get to his country,” Fuad Mohamed Shongole Qalaf, one of the rebel leaders, said in a radio broadcast on Monday.

The message was recorded in the town of Afgoye, near the Somali capital of Mogadishu during a merger ceremony between Al-Shabab and another armed Islamist group Hizbul Islam. The two armed groups have declared a merger to help oust “infidels” from the country.

Aweys, the leader Hizbul Islam, said his group will fight under al-Shabab’s command to destroy “infidel” from Somalia.

"We have united for the sake of our ideology and we are going to redouble our efforts to remove everything haraam from the country.

“We have been waiting [for] this unity for so long and thanks to Allah for finally helping us succeed to be a unified mujahideen force,” added Aweys.

The al-Shabab group launched coordinated suicide attacks in Uganda in this July that killed 76 people. It has also announced its allegiance to al-Qaeda and is believed to be harboring a mastermind of the twin 2008 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.

Somalia, the Horn of Africa nation has not had a functioning government since a socialist dictatorship collapsed in 1991. Its position on the Horn of Africa means pirates can use its long coastline to capture shipping.
The fall of Yemen to al-Qaida insurgents may complicate world’s shipping

Analysts fear that al-Qaida linked insurgents are also gaining ground across the Gulf of Aden in the unstable nation of Yemen. If Yemen fell, that would mean failed states on either side of the shipping route leading into the strategically vital Suez Canal, the route taken by a substantial portion of the world’s oil shipments.

Al-Shabab has not yet launched an attack outside Africa but Western intelligence has long been worried because the group targeted young Somali-Americans for recruitment. About 20 Somali-Americans have traveled to Somalia for training.

That’s like poking an angry dog with a stick before it’s chain snaps.

Ridiculous. Forcing someone to convert to a religion is insane.

And I think America can’t/won’t do anything. They’re too busy with all their internal politics (rich people getting tax cuts!), plus Iraq/Afghan wars, plus tensions with Iran and South Korea.

Sigh. The world is crazy.

what is this I don’t even-

i think Obama wouldn’t give a ■■■■…

what a “peace-FOOL” religion

Forcing ppl to convert religion?? They seems using religion as a bridge / shield / as a reason / whatsoever…so weak…

I just lol’ed

i seriously don’t get the rationale for such demands, my only guess is, with most of his life spent on being a warlord, his mentality is also that of a feudalist warlord.

i assume he believes once obama, as the head of state, converted, the US would also have its religion changed. that is true in somalia, also the wider middle east and arab world. may sound ridiculous but some people’s mentality is like that.

someone gotta tell him it just doesn’t work. even if obama converts, shall he try to impose the religion, tomorrow america would have its president changed.

ok…this is something that religion NOT SUPPOSE to do…
forcing ppl to convert /join their religion…
man…i can see that they act almost like some direct sales forcing ppl to join in…

same, they all are like salesmen, just the methods different :lol: :lol:

this one uses the hard ways (i.e. force, violence)

others use the soft ways (i.e. keep pestering you at your house or whenever you go once they targeted you)

not like i never met some missionaries before - took nearly 40 days to completely get rid of them. 8)

Religion shouldn’t be forced upon someone. It must be experienced by one. Extremists are idiots.

haiz…always blame Islam and always use Islam…

he is already a moslam…


Conversion by sword in the norm during their glorious era

But i do believe european missionary supported by their empire did d same xcept they used gun power (need more reading/reference source)

The extremist are just talking c*** only. They couldn’t afford a war if they want to.

Fuel your warheads commanders…

Recently I watch about treacherous conditions in Somalia on Al-Jazeera. It’s really a dangerous place. Only dare-devils like that journalist dare to land on Mogadishu. His mission to search for pirates is really interesting. Hope it’s still on air on channel 513.
