Squirmy Jihadis

You usually hear the term merger describing a business deal, but this article writes of a merge in relation to Al Qaeda branches. (Titled: Al-Qaida leader scraps Syria, Iraq branch merger.) I must say, I enjoy watching the jihadis squirm. The details:

In April, al-Qaida in Iraq said it had joined forces with the Nusra Front, forming a new alliance called the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

Hours after the announcement, Nusra Front leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani appeared to distance himself from the merger, saying he was not consulted. Instead, he pledged allegiance to al-Zawahiri.

In Sunday’s letter, al-Zawahri chastises the head of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying he announced the merger without consulting al-Qaida’s leadership. He also admonished al-Golani for publicly distancing himself from the merger.

“The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant will be abolished,” al-Zawahri said, adding that Nusra Front will remain an independent branch of al-Qaida. Al-Baghdadi and al-Golani are to stay on as leaders of their respective branches for another year, after which the al-Qaida leadership will decide whether they will keep their posts or be replaced.

Squirm baby, squirm. . .

  1. The two major Muslim sects remain Sunni & Shi’a….problem is they hate each other with equal viciousness and violence and consider the other apostate….so popcorn is appropriate….they’ve been killing each other for practically fourteen centuries….and that doesn’t even include other Muslim sects which number in the hundreds….you think Muslims killing infidels (Christians, Jews and other religious faiths) is a primary goal …think again…they go after their own of different sects with even more ferocity….this is who they are and the ‘religion of peace’ is a misnomer….there’s only peace when everyone’s the same…this is why control is the real issue and also why they aligned themselves with Nazis during World War II….a theocracy is not all sunshine and lollipops….another world war in the offing….k

  2. I can see this being taken to an arbitration board, failing that they should select a neutral Islamic country and just shoot it out, last man standing wins?
