How did the Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad Movement in West Africa get the crazy idea that jihad had something to do with making bombs? What are U.S.-based “moderate” Muslim spokesmen doing to disabuse them of their misunderstanding? Why, nothing. Nothing at all.
In a January 8, 2013 statement on its Facebook page, Al-Murabiteen, the media foundation of the Salafi-jihadi organization Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad Movement in West Africa (MOJWA), announced the launch of its online forum and media server. According to the statement, the Al-Murabiteen network, which is hosted on a Yahoo server in Sunnyvale, CA, would join the jihadi media front, which it praised for “angering the enemies of Allah.”
How could their staying fit despite their busy schedules anger the enemies of Allah?
