Al Qaeda On The Rise

The Obama administration’s claims that Al Qaeda is no longer effective is simply not true. While AQ in Afghanistan has been greatly reduced, it has spread out and is now operating throughout North Africa. It has been a driving force in Libya, is aiding and abetting Boko Harem in Nigeria and recruiting female suicide bombers via the internet to commit bombings in Britain.

From the TELEGRAPH.CO.UK we see this:

Al-Qaeda’s hand in Boko Haram's deadly Nigerian attacks

Al-Qaeda operatives in North Africa have helped to transform Boko Haram into a terrorist group capable of killing hundreds in sophisticated attacks.

The radical Islamist group, based in northern Nigeria, once specialised in robbing banks and attacking defenceless Christian congregations. In the past month, however, its gunmen or suicide bombers have struck 21 times, killing at least 253 people.

The Daily Telegraph understands this transformation has come about partly because of the help Boko Haram has received from al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), a branch of the international terrorist network based in the Saharan states of Mali, Niger and Algeria.



Al-Qaeda bid for Brit girl bombers

Extremist websites lure angels of death, MPs warn

AL-QAEDA is trying to recruit WOMEN to carry out suicide bombings in the UK, MPs warn today.

It is using extremist websites to radicalise the angels of death, says their chilling report.

The Commons home affairs committee says it has heard evidence the terror group is "specifically launching and targeting women for violent acts".

It is already a deadly tactic in the Middle East, where growing numbers of Palestinian women are volunteering for suicide missions against Israel. The MPs' report comes days after four Islamic extremists admitted plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.


All in all, Islam is on the march and on the rise around the world. The ongoing "Arab Spring" is inspiring Islamists everywhere to take up jihad against the non-believers. The 21st century will be known in history as the century of the third, and greatest Jihad. Whether we prevail will depend largely on how quickly we mobilize and present a united front to the Muslim invasion.
