The Two Als

Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda, together, finally,  Since the ideology and doctrine is the same, and the book they read from contains the same verses extolling Muslims to murder, enslave or convert (9-29) it really was just a matter of time until the unholy wedding.  Despite our fearless leader's hot air that Al-Qaeda is on the ropes and at the end of it's life, this article very clearly points to the folly of that statement.

Somalia's al-Shabab joins Al Qaeda, leader says

NAIROBI, Kenya -- Al Qaeda's leader says that the Somali militant group al-Shabab has formally joined Al Qaeda.

A video translation by the Site Intelligence group released on Thursday said that Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri gave "glad tidings" that al-Shabab had joined Al Qaeda.

Al-Zawahri said al-Shabab would support the jihad movement against what he called the "Zio-Crusader campaign."

Al-Shabab leaders have pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in the past, but the video -- which was posted on an Islamic Internet forum on Thursday -- is the first formal welcoming of al-Shabab by Al Qaeda.

The al-Shabab-Al Qaeda alliance in Somalia counts hundreds of foreign fighters among its ranks.
