Ansar al-Muslimeen Leader Criticizes Boko Haram, Greets al-Qaeda Officials in Eid al-Adha Speech

The leader of the Nigeria-based jihadi group Ansar al-Muslimeen criticized Boko Haram for its attacks in the towns of Baga and Benisheik, and greeted al-Qaeda officials in a message for Eid al-Adha 2013. The Sinam al-Islam Network's al-Qabidun 'Ala al-Jamr Media Foundation posted the speech from Abu Usama al-Ansari on its forum on November 14, 2013. The Ansar al-Muslimeen leader promoted jihad and fighters, asking Muslims to reject how the Western media brands them as "enemies of freedom who rebel against international laws". Such laws have no meaning, he remarked, especially in light of the removal of the democratically-elected Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt. Ansari called jihad a "human movement" and acknowledged that fighters make mistakes, but claimed that the men of Ansar al-Muslimeen are innocent of operations targeting Muslims in public places and that make them homeless.

Regarding Boko Haram, Ansari did not mention the group by name, or its leader, Abu Bakr Shekau, but referred to him claiming credit for massacres in Baga and Benisheik in Nigeria's Borno State. Ansari added that Nigerian Muslims face danger from three directions: the "cruel" Christians, the Nigerian government, and "people from their own group making them taste the same thing that they suffer from the cruel enemy". This message is not the first time Ansar al-Muslimeen indirectly criticized Boko Haram. In May 2013, the group denied responsibility for targeting Nigerian civilians and placed responsibility on "the soldiers of Satan and those who don't know the Shariah policies and the goals of the Shariah".

In the conclusion of the message, the Ansar al-Muslimeen leader addressed greetings to Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar and al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as leaders of al-Qaeda affiliates in Iraq, North Africa, Syria and Yemen, and Moktar Belmoktar.
