Somalia to Obama: Convert to Islam or America gets it
al-Shabab leader on TV - even the pose is similar to Osama bin Laden
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.
Soldiers from the al-Shabab armed group
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.
