ED Noor: For the information to date on the truth in Mali, please go to The Mask of Zion, linked on the lower right, and read Jonathan Azaziah's brilliant analysis of the situation in Africa as of 6 months ago. To understand the current situation, please listen to his broadcast at The Ugly Truth earlier today. The scope of his work will leave you with a rare grasp and honest knowledge of the truth in Africa. Just about 2/3 through, Jonathan gets down to this topic in full. Above, Taureg tribespeople.
“…there is a (probably well-founded) fear in France that a radical Islamist Mali threatens France most of all, since most of the Islamists are French speakers and many have relatives in France. (Intelligence sources in Paris have told TIME that they’ve identified aspiring jihadis leaving France for northern Mali to train and fight.) Al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), one of the three groups that make up the Malian Islamist alliance and which provides much of the leadership, has also designated France ~ the representative of Western power in the region ~ as a prime target for attack.”
Algeria has expressed particular concern that the unrest in Libya could lead to the development of a major safe haven and sanctuary for al-Qaeda and other extremist jihadis.
