So just one video more has surfaced about those, who gave the highest possible proof for their belief: they died, fighting on the path of God and hence are the shuhada’ – which should not be translated as martyr! A grave error, which has led to misunderstand the notion of jihad and islamism.
Remembering the fighters who went fighting in caravans. Join the caravan is a famous statement by Abdallah Azzam, the great mentor of Osama bin Laden – this call (ilhaq al-qafila) can be found throughout the jihadi literature; the meaning is clear: the definition of jihad as an individual duty, obligatory for every muslim and to join the existing fight, so join the caravan and gain one of the two most beautiful things: victory or becoming a shahid.
As usual, the impression of “paradise”, or at least something nice and peacefull. In this case, we have a natural view of what seems to be a mountainous area with forest and a river/lake. Just the right place to dwell for eternity?
How one Abd al-Aziz b. Muhammad (Abu Usama al-Iraqi) has defined and published in his book “the craving of the souls for the women of the land of the greatest joy (a.k.a. paradise)” is work in progress, but expect something soon. It’s a wild mixture of being in a peacefull countrystrip with all the female clients around a man can dream of. Unfortunately this is exact the kind of notion many jihadis dream about – why you ask? The sexuality among the male mujahidin is something we do not have a lot of information, so far I have come across a shahid story from Afghanistan where to a certain extend the beauty of battle with the purity of religion seems to be intertwined (work in progress, sorry for that).
The shahid Abu al-Bara’ as-Suri, after his death in Falluja
Looking good for death – after his clean up and exhibition; can you smell the moshus?
Here it gets really interesting. According to another video, where the chap in the background has a vital part of talking, this Hasan al-Makki is wanted by the saudi intelligence community and has died in Iraq according to some sources. I must add, that I will try to get an update on the issue. This could be a valuable example of the two torrents in Saudi Arabia: the al-Qa’ida cells that wanted to continue to operate in Saudi Arabia (such as al-Muqrin) and those who went to Iraq to fight the far enemy there. Hasan al-Makki is supposed to be from Eritrea.
The shahid Abu Nasir at-Tshadi; so this young appretice of the eritrean al-Makki is from Chad. Doesn’t look too happy about his forthcoming operation though.
