„Was soll die Frage?!“ – Reda Seyam greift Journalisten an

Für die einen ist er ein Terrorverdächtiger und ein ideologischer Übervater der Berliner Salafisten-Szene, für die anderen eine Art Kameramann im Dienste des Islamismus – Reda Seyam. Eines ist sicher: Seyam, der seit Jahren als Terrorverdächtiger in Deutschland lebt und im Visier der Sicherheitsbehörden steht, ist wohl eine der schillerndsten Figuren der deutschen Islamisten-Szene und ein Pionier in der Propagandaarbeit mit der Kamera.

Keine größere Veranstaltung der vergangenen Monate, insbesondere nicht die Koran-Verteil-Aktion und die Proteste gegen den umstrittenen Karikaturen-Wettbewerb der rechtsextreme Partei „Pro NRW“ in Bonn und Köln, ließ Seyam aus. Er wolle die Bilder von deutschen Mohammed-Karikaturen in die arabische Welt bringen, meinen Kritiker. Seyams Interesse sei es, den Konflikt zwischen Salafisten und rechten Islamhassern anzuheizen. In Bonn und Köln war er mit der Kamera dabei, filmte Glaubensbrüder bei den gewalttätigen Ausschreitungen und Angriffen auf die Polizei.

Wird Seyam selbst mit der Kamera konfrontiert, dann reagiert der Salafist mitunter aggressiv.Das musste gestern ein Kamerateam von SPIEGEL TV am eigenen Leib erfahren (siehe Video hier), als die Reporter versuchten, Reda Seyam vor seiner Wohnung in Berlin-Charlottenburg zu befragen.

Seyam entriss dem Kameramann noch durch die geöffnete Autotür die Kamera und zerstörte einen Teil der Technik im Wert von mehreren tausend Euro. Anschließend verfolgte der bullige Deutsch-Ägypter die Journalisten und attackierte sie.

Als die Polizei mit zwei Streifenwagen anrückte, nahmen die Beamten die Anzeigen gegen Reda Seyam auf: Versuch der schweren Körperverletzung und Sachbeschädigung.

Al-Qaida´s new Emir, Dr.Ayman az-Zawahiri, appears in a new 12-minute video message released by the As-Sahab Media titled „The Defeats of the Americans Continue“.

In his speech, Zawahiri sitting in an armchair, talks about the various U.S. military campaigns and the Arab springs, summing it all up as America´s defeat throughout the Muslim world.

„The Mujahideen attacked America at home in the biggest attack since Pearl Harbor, then America was defeated in Iraq“, Zawahiri claims, „America was defeated in Tunisia and lost its agent, then it was defeated in Egypt.“

With regards to Libya, Zawahiri warns the Libyan opposition of NATO´s alleged plan to take over the country after Gaddafi was toppled – „People of Libya, you have achieved this victory with your blood, don´t let anyone take this victory from you!“

Libyans, Zawahiri says, should know that the only form of government acceptable to Allah is the Islamic State ruled according to the Shariah.

 

Swedish Suicide Bomber Trained in Iraq

by Florian Flade


Al-Arabiya TV Channel reports it has received information that the failed Stockholm suicide bomber Taimour Abdulwahhab al-Abdali underwent terror training in Iraq before he carried out his attack in the Swedish capital in early December 2010. Tonight the Arabic speaking TV channel will broadcast the new information in a show called „Industrie of Death“.

Major General Zia Kinani, Head of Iraqi Counter-Terrorism, told Al-Arabiya Iraqi security officials had warned Swedish authorities two months prior to the bombing in Stockholm, that Sweden might be a possible target for the Iraqi al-Qaida network. The USA and Sweden have been warned the „Islamic State of Iraq“ (Al-Qaida) is planning to carry out operations in the USA and Europe.

The Swedish national Taimour Abdulwahhab al-Abdali who blew himself up next to a busy shopping street in Stockholm, had entered Iraq via the Turkish border in 2010, Iraqi officials have learned. He received explosives training in an al-Qaida training camp in the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul. Several other foreign Jihadis, including an Egyptian, were trained at the same time and same place as al-Abdali. One of the Egyptians who trained alongside al-Abdali is still at large. Security forces suspect the man was tasked with a similar operation.

Iraqi security officials believe al-Qaida in Iraq („Islamic State of Iraq“) is trying to carry out a big operation in Europe or the USA to proof that the group is still alive and dangerous. They try to do the same thing the Yemeni al-Qaida (Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula) did – take the local fight to external operations, sending Western individuals on terror missions. Al-Qaida in Iraq is therefore trying to recruit Western Jihadis, European and North American citizens.

Shortly after the death of its famous leader and Amir Abu Mussab az-Zarqawi, the Iraqi al-Qaida branch carried out its first international operation on November 9th 2005 in the Jordanian capital Amman. A suicide bomber couple was sent to Jordan from Iraq to kill Westerners and Jordanian intelligence officials in a hotel. 60 people died, most of them guests of a wedding which took place at the targeted hotel.

Since the Jordan attack, no operation was successfully carried out outside Iraq by members of the Iraqi al-Qaida. The Stockholm suicide bomber al-Abdali sent three audio messages to Swedish police and a news agency, in which he stated „the Islamic State has begun to fulfill its promise“. Al-Abdali did not specifically mention Iraq or the „Islamic State of Iraq“. Terror experts and Swedish officials therefore did not immediately confirm a link between the Stockholm bomber and the terror network. However, al-Abdali did mention he traveled to the Middle East several times over the past four years, saying he feels sorry for lying to his wife and children about the motives of his journeys. „I did not go for business, I went for Jihad“, al-Abdali says in the audio message.

The Swedish citizen of Iraqi origin also indicates the existence of more trained terrorists ready to strike Europe. „We are not a lie…we are for real and now exist among you Europeans“, al-Abdali says.
