Al Qaeda’s co-founder and former emir Osama bin Laden said: “It is a duty for the Umma with all its categories, men, women and youths, to give away themselves, their money, experiences and all types of material support…Jihad today is an imperative for every Muslim. The Umma will commit sin if it does not provide adequate material support for jihad.”
This gives you no small indication of what they are not telling us. And the only reason this little gem was released was because MI5 was hard pressed to explain how the Manchester bomber slipped through their fingers despite being known to them. Further, the FBI warned MI5 about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi in January (just as the Russians warned us about the Boston bombers previous to their attack. We did nothing , too).
Sixteen years after the September 11th attacks, this is where we are. And for the past 15 years, a handful of us have worked tirelessly to educate, warn and prepare freedom loving peoples of and for the threat through our activism, protests, conferences, free speech lawsuits, books, news websites etc.
For that we were smeared, attacked, our reputations destroyed. Multiple Islamic assassination plots against have been foiled. But still we soldiered on because we knew. We were right.
Manchester bomber Salman Abedi’s father, Ramadan Abedi, was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) also known as Al-Jama’a al-Islamiyyah al-Muqatilah bi-Libya , was an armed jiahd group whose members include alleged Al Qaeda organizer Abd al-Muhsin Al-Libi who now holds a key command position in the Libya Shield Force.
