Of these two, which is more farcical?
A jihadi is eating breakfast and gets waxed? (Not Brazilian waxed, but an old-school mafia waxing.) Then, his men’s club celebrates the fact that ol’ Abu could not finish his short stack of pancakes:
We celebrate to you the news of the martyrdom of the working scholar Shaykh Khalid al-Hussainan (Abu Zaid al-Kuwaiti) while eating his Suhoor (dawn time) meal, and we ask Allah to accept him in paradise.
Evan Kohlmann, an NBC News counterterrorism analyst, said al-Hussainan was at the forefront of a new wave of al-Qaida leadership.
“That’s a big gap in the leadership,” said Kohlmann.
Or the fact that the Pakistani Taliban is recruiting via Facebook:
THE Pakistani Taliban has set up a page on Facebook to recruit enthusiasts to write for a quarterly magazine and to edit video, a spokesman confirmed.
The Umar Media TTP page, which has more than 270 likes, appears to have been created in September and has just a handful of messages written in English.
“Umar Media is proud to announce online jobs oppertunities (sic),” says the first post on the networking website, written on October 25.
“Job discription (sic) is video editing, translations, sharing, uploading, downloading and collection of required data,” it says, giving an email address and asking readers to “plz spread it. This fb account ma be deleted.”
Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan confirmed to AFP by telephone on Friday that the faction was “temporarily” using the page “to fulfil its requirements” before launching its own website.
Ummmm, Umar Media, have you guys tried monster.com? I hear they get good results.
