Dozens of westerners, including Britons, are known to have joined the ranks of Somalia’s al-Shabaab, the Islamist militant group that has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s deadly assault on the upmarket Westgate mall in Nairobi.
The terrorist group that pledged its obedience to al-Qaida and its head, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in February 2012, is fighting to impose a strict interpretation of Sharia law in Somalia.
Formed in 2006 as a spin-off of the now-defunct Union of Islamic Courts, al-Shabaab – which means ‘the youth’ in Arabic – has since succeeded in taking control of large areas of the lawless country.
The group turned Somalia into a safe haven for jihadi training, and foreign extremists poured into the country.
In 2010 former MI5 head Sir Jonathan Evans warned that as many as 100 Britons with Pakistani, Bangladeshi and West African backgrounds had flown to Somalia to receive terrorist training.
One year later, a similar report by the US House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee said that al-Shabaab had recruited more than 40 Muslim Americans and some 20 Canadians.
A member of the House Homeland Security Committee says the al-Qaida affiliated group that claimed responsibility for the deadly attack on a shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali-American communities in the U.S.
Committee member Rep. Peter King said that between 15 and 20 of Somali-Americans al-Shabab recruited remain active today. Speaking to ABC’s This Week, the New York Republican also warned some may return and “use their abilities on the US.”
Among the most famous examples are British native Samantha Lewthwaite, 29, the widow of one of the 7/7 London bombers, and Omar Hammami, 28, an Alabama native who came to international prominence when he posted a series of YouTube videos in which he rapped about jihad.
Lewthwaite, nicknamed ‘The White Widow’ is the world’s most wanted woman. She was allegedly part of a terror unit that planned to stage a bomb attack in the city of Mombasa, Kenya in 2011.
The widow of the Kings Cross bomber Germaine Lindsay, Lewthwaite earlier this year also allegedly plotted an armed assault on a Kenyan courthouse in order to free one of her British accomplices, Jermaine Grant.
Another British man said to be a close ally of Lewthwaite was reportedly killed in a gun battle in Somalia earlier this month.
Habib Ghani, 28, a bomb-maker of mixed British-Pakistani origin also known as Osama al-Britani, was reportedly executed by al-Shabaab after falling out with the group leadership.
He had joined a separate terrorist cell led by Hammami, known as Abu Mansur al-Amriki or ‘the American’, who was also killed.
Hammami had parted from al-Shabaab and founded his own militia last year, after terrorist leaders accused him of being selfish and loving the limelight.
The recruitment of westerners has reportedly slowed almost to a halt recently, thanks to a largely successful military offensive against al-Shabaab led by the African Union.
Al-Shabaab has been ousted from most town and cities and confined to rural areas.
The group said it launched the attack in Nairobi in retaliation against Kenya’s involvement in these actions.
It is not known if foreigners are among the 20 extremists who broke into the four-storey mall and are still holding hostages nearly 24 hours after they attacked with grenades and assault rifles.
At least 59 people have been killed and 175 injured.
Jihad proceeds in stages. Stage One: Stealth Jihad. Stage Two: Defensive Jihad. Stage Three: Offensive Jihad.
The Rotana Café where the brutal killing took place is known as a hookah lounge and is located a few blocks from the Madinah Masjid mosque. Hookah lounges are often owned and operated by Muslims and include Middle Eastern cuisine and Islamic decor and, for many, are regarded as a novel and chic way to socialize and “embrace multiculturalism.” Unfortunately, someone was there that night who decided to embrace something else entirely …
By Tanya Mok, National Post – “An off-duty firefighter has died after being stabbed in the head ‘without provocation’ several times at a Danforth café early Saturday morning, Toronto police said.
Dominic Parker, 45, died from his wounds in hospital after he was attacked at 1:18 a.m. at Rotana Café in the Danforth and Coxwell Avenues area. Mr. Parker was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital around 2 a.m., and died from severe head wounds shortly after midnight Sunday. Police have charged a 23-year-old man with first-degree murder.
‘The family is completely devastated to have their husband and father completely ripped out of their lives so violently and so fast,’ said Jay Michaels, the media representative of Mr. Parker’s family.
Mr. Parker had been married for 23 years to his high school sweetheart and has two daughters, 18 and 19, both of whom are in their first year at Concordia University in Montreal.
Aside from being a firefighter in Markham, Mr. Parker also worked as a freelance set designer and had just finished shooting a Christmas commercial Friday night around 8 p.m., said Mr. Michaels. He and two friends from the production crew decided to have a couple of beers at a nearby bar and after several hours they parted ways. Mr. Parker went to pick up his bike, which he had parked on Danforth Avenue.
He decided to stop by Rotana Café first, where he knows the owner. It was while sitting on a couch sipping tea that Mr. Parker was stabbed repeatedly in the head by a stranger.
‘Police are calling it a completely random act of violence,’ Mr. Michaels said.
It’s unclear how many times Mr. Parker was stabbed but his most serious injury was a knife wound that went through the back of his head and through his brain, Mr. Michaels said.
Doctors surgically removed part of Mr. Parker’s skull to relieve some pressure but his wounds proved too grave.
Nabil Hurhuy, 23, was arrested in Scarborough Saturday afternoon and charged with first-degree murder …”
