The whole world should support Ethiopia, with the same assurance with which it supports Israel and the states of Western Europe, as well as the Philippines, India, and the other states threatened by the jihad. But this does not and will not happen, because the problem of jihad is still not being faced as such. Somali Jihad Update from AP:
MOGADISHU, Somalia “” Hundreds of Ethiopian troops in armored vehicles rolled into Somalia yesterday to protect their allies in this country’s virtually powerless government from Islamic militants who control the capital.
The move could give the American-backed Somali government its only chance of curbing the Islamic militia’s increasing power. But Ethiopia’s incursion could also be just the provocation the militia needs to build public support for a guerrilla war.
“We will declare jihad if the Ethiopian government refuses to withdraw their troops from Somalia,” a top Islamic official, Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed, told the Associated Press.
