Unconventional thinking about the Middle East.

Quickly, for the record...

I logged online here in Beirut International Airport, and found that my name had been circulating in the press.

Ooooh, what a mess.

For the record:

-The "Khalid Mashhadani" that I identified as "Abu Omar al-Baghdadi" on this blog is "Khalid Khalil Ibrahim Mashhadani" whereas the Americans said they captured "Khalid Abdullah Fattah Daoud Muhammad Mashhadani". These are two different people.

-The captive Mashhadani was taken into custody on July 4th whereas "Abu Omar al-Baghdadi" released his fifth speech on July 9th.

-The captive Mashhadani was caught in Mosul, whereas 'my' Mashhadani operates in Ridhwaniya (west of Baghdad) and Dhulu'iyyah (Diyala Province).

-The American military claims to have confessions alleging that "Abu Omar al-Baghdadi" is a fictitious character. I believe that the post-Zarqawi 'Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia' leadership would NOT likely pull off such a trick; the issue of declaring the Islamic State of Iraq and picking a descendant of Qureish as the 'Prince of the Faithful'--with all the caliphal connotations this step carries--was too ideologically daring for a simple enough stunt ostensibly meant to confuse the Americans about the composition of Al-Qaeda's leadership. The caliphate is a much bigger deal for the Zarqawists and the wider jihadist world than the day-to-day effort of staying a step ahead of the Americans.

-I am still convinced that 'my' Mashhadani is 'Abu Omar al-Baghdadi'.

More when I get settled in Istanbul. And I promise, this blog will get active again.

US military says Baghdadi is a radio actor and that Mashadani revealed this fact under interrogation. They say baghdadi is controlled by masri, that there is no real Iraqi in charge of the organization.

I must say that I agree with your diagnosis of such filth, Mr. Gawad. Please do continue to speak the truth!

[ These bastards are not true believers, they are prostitutes who abuse Islam. ]

Give it a rest Jawad, Allah (3azza wa jal) says not to take Christians for auliya', and that is one of the clearest rulings in the Book and the Sunna

The Surge Succeeds


[The surge is more of a refinement than a novelty. Earlier Coalition efforts were not in error as much as they were incomplete. American troops would clean out an area, turn it over to an Iraqi unit, and depart. The Jihadis would then push out the unseasoned Iraqis and return to business. This occurred in Fallujah, Tall Afar, and endless times in Ramadi.

Now U.S. troops are remaining on site, which reassures the locals and encourages cooperation. The Jihadis broke (and more than likely never knew) the cardinal rule of insurgency warfare, that of being a good guest. As Mao put it, "The revolutionary must be as a fish among the water of the peasantry." The Jihadis have been lampreys to the Iraqi people. Proselytizing, forcing adaptation of their reactionary creed, engaging in torture, kidnapping, and looting. Arabic culture is one in which open dealings, personal loyalty, and honor are at a premium. Violate any of them, and there is no way back. The Jihadis violated them all. The towns and cities of Iraq are no longer sanctuaries.

The results have begun to come in. On July 4, Khaled al-Mashhadani, the most senior Iraqi in Al-Queda, was captured in Mosul. On July 14, Abu Jurah, a senior Al-Queda leader in the area south of Baghdad, was killed in a coordinated strike by artillery, helicopters, and fighter-bombers. These blows to the leadership are the direct outgrowth of Jihadi brutality and the new confidence among the Iraqis in what they have begun to call the "al-Ameriki tribe".]

In the Wake of the Surge


["This is not what I expected in Baghdad," I said.

"Most of what we're doing doesn't get reported in the media," he said. "We're not fighting a war here anymore, not in this area. We've moved way beyond that stage. We built a soccer field for the kids, bought all kinds of equipment, bought them school books and even chalk. Soon we're installing 1,500 solar street lamps so they have light at night and can take some of the load off the power grid. The media only covers the gruesome stuff. We go to the sheiks and say hey man, what kind of projects do you want in this area? They give us a list and we submit the paperwork. When the projects get approved, we give them the money and help them buy stuff."

Not everything they do is humanitarian work, unless you consider counter-terrorism humanitarian work. In my view, you should. Few Westerners think of personal security as a human right, but if you show up in Baghdad I'll bet you will. Personal security may, in fact, be the most important human right. Without it the others mean little. People aren't free if they have to hide in their homes from death squads and car bombs.

In another part of Graya'at is an area called the Fish Market. Gates were installed at each entrance so terrorists can't drive car bombs inside. The people here are extraordinarily grateful for this. Businesses, not cars, are booming now at the market. Residents feel free and safe enough to go out.]

Tribes in Khalis Pledge to Fight al Qaeda


[Approximately 75 tribal sheiks and local leaders gathered at the Iraqi Army Headquarters in Khalis, Iraq, to discuss grievances between tribes, determine solutions for security and services, and unite to defeat al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations in the Khalis area.

“Our goal is to be united and cooperate between us to stand between any force that wishes to challenge our unity,” said one tribal sheik. “We have to show the people that we are honest and serious about fighting against al-Qaeda.”]

[As stated in the Quran, “And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves,” the sheiks agreed to eight conditions.

“Here, right now, I am denouncing the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Qaeda,” said another sheik who later swore on the Quran to uphold the conditions of the peace agreement.]

and lots more where that came from.. Sunni & Shia
are coming together as one people, for one Iraq.. :)

Al-Qaeda faces rebellion from the ranks


[Fed up with being part of a group that cuts off a person’s face with piano wire to teach others a lesson, dozens of low-level members of al-Qaeda in Iraq are daring to become informants for the US military in a hostile Baghdad neighbourhood.

The ground-breaking move in Doura is part of a wider trend that has started in other al-Qaeda hotspots across the country and in which Sunni insurgent groups and tribal sheikhs have stood together with the coalition against the extremist movement.

“They are turning. We are talking to people who we believe have worked for al-Qaeda in Iraq and want to reconcile and have peace,”]

[It is impossible to corroborate the claims, but he said that scores of junior al-Qaeda in Iraq members there had become informants since May, including one low-level cell leader who gave vital information after his arrest.

“He gave us dates, places and names and who did what,”
Lieutenant Danly said. When asked why he was being so
forthcoming, the man said: “Because I am sick of it and I
hate them, and I am done.”]

we are all sickened by what AQ et al has done, is doing,
and intends to do.. they will perish from the face of this
Earth, Allah wills it!!
