mall

As gunmen from the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement raided the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, killing over 60 people and injuring 175 others, jihadists praised the group for the “successful blow” and taunted the Kenyan government and military.

In discussions that began on the top-tier jihadi forum al-Fida’ on September 21, 2013, users followed the news of the siege, posting articles and pictures from the media, and celebrated the attack with cries of “Allahu Akbar [Allah is Great].” One jihadist lauded the Shabaab for writing on the “most magnificent epics of sacrifice and redemption in the midst of the land of the Crusaders,” and another said, for example, “This operation is a successful blow by the mujahideen brothers from all aspects: the security effort, the planning, the execution, and the selection of the target with precision. Malls fill the world, but not all malls are full of the criminal Jews, who are the worst enemies of Muslims. Targeting Jews everywhere they go is the gift of the mujahideen for the people of Palestine”.

Following is a translation of a sampling of the messages:

[Al-Zubair Al-Maqhoor]

This operation is a successful blow by the mujahideen brothers from all aspects: the security effort, the planning, the execution, and the selection of the target with precision. Malls fill the world, but not all malls are full of the criminal Jews, who are the worst enemies of Muslims. Targeting Jews everywhere they go is the gift of the mujahideen for the people of Palestine.

O Allah, grant us Your victory that You promised.
 
[Abu Khabab al-Muhajir]

Sheikh Usama bin Laden, may Allah have mercy on him, and Ayman al-Zawahiri may Allah preserve him, and others, participated in signing and issuing a fatwa under the name of the ‘Global Islamic Front to Fight the Jews and the Crusaders,’ in which they declared: “The ruling on the killing of the Americans and their allies, civilians and military, is an obligation on every Muslim in every country whenever he is able to do so”.

[Abu Dujana al-Maghribi]

Allahu Akbar [Allah is Great]…

Do you remember the amazing silence when the Bakara market was shelled with artillery three years ago[?] Those who visited the marketplace were Muslims.
 
[Abu Nasser al-Na’mani]

Allahu Akbar, long live the lions of Qaedat al-Jihad Organization in the Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement. The lions are still in control and record the most magnificent epics of sacrifice and redemption in the midst of the land of the Crusaders.

Allahu Akbar. Glory is to Allah, His Messenger and the believers.
 
[Shibrimah al-Ansari]

No one is more cowardly and lowly than you O worshippers of the cross and eaters of pig. No one is more cowardly than you except your filthy slaves the Arab rulers and their humiliated soldiers who kill those who are prostrating and praying, and bomb children and women, exactly like you in lowliness, perniciousness of slaves and slaves of slaves -all are filthy.
 
[Al-Zubair Al-Maqhoor]

Hollywood and the new filters for Qaedat al-Jihad.

The pride of the original jihad.
