Bin Laden Bodyguard Discovered in Germany

Pages: 1 2

Those wishful-thinking diehards who believe Europe will eventually come to its senses regarding its security interests and reverse its suicidal tolerance of militant Islamists in its midst received a ringing slap in the face earlier this month.

The latest occurrence indicating the Old World is sliding into a bloody nightmare of Islamist violence with little desire to defend itself comes this time from Germany where news reports announced that bin Laden’s former bodyguard, who was discovered residing in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), has been busy recruiting young Muslims for the jihad. It is also believed the 36-year-old native of Tunisia, identified in newspapers in accordance with German law only as Sami A., is responsible for having radicalized two members of the Dusseldorf terrorist cell.

An al-Qaeda affiliate, the Dusseldorf cell was broken up in April of 2011. Three Islamist cell members are currently on trial, charged with planning a bomb attack in Germany.

“We have clear indications that he [Sami A.] tried to radicalise young people with his intellectual assets,” said Ralf Jaeger, the socialist interior minister for NRW.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the news publication, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ), revealed last week that the former bin Laden employee and hardcore Salafist was actually planning to open his own mosque in Bochum, a city in NRW where he has lived the past eight years with his wife and three children. It was also WAZ investigators who revealed to the German public Sami A.’s presence in NRW and jihad recruitment activities.

The WAZ revelations, understandably, have sent shock waves across Germany. This is the country where some of the 9/11 suicide bombers lived and plotted their day of infamy against America. Due to this connection, many Germans are simply incredulous, as well as very embarrassed, that a bin Laden associate, who knew 9/11 plotters like Guantanamo prisoner Ramzi Binalshibh, was even in Germany let alone carrying on terrorist activities. WAZ states that Sami A. is “connected worldwide” to terrorist networks and also knew the terrorist who helped plan the synagogue attack on Tunisia’s Djerba island.

“In the terror scene, he is considered a bright light,” states WAZ. “Radical Islamists pay homage to him. For young people who seek direction, a person like Sami A. can be a fixture point.”

According to WAZ, Sami A. first came to Germany as a student in 1997. He travelled to Pakistan in 1999, remaining for seven months, staying also in an al-Qaeda guest house in Kandahar, where he met top al-Qaeda officials. In addition, Sami A. received 45 days of military training in an al-Qaeda camp. After returning to Germany, the al-Qaeda veteran resumed his studies, eventually moving to Bochum in 2005 to study electronics and take up jihadi activities. “The weapon,” WAZ reports, “with which he fights here (in Bochum) for the victory of radical Islam is his hero’s reputation.”

Not unexpectedly, the NRW branch of the German intelligence service responsible for keeping tabs on terrorists, the Verfassungsschutz (Germany’s FBI), is at pains to explain how a man who used to personally protect Osama bin Laden with a rocket propelled grenade launcher in Pakistan in 2000 could for years radicalise and recruit unimpeded young people for the jihad. All that a spokesman for the NRW Interior Ministry would say was that they had the dangerous Islamist in their sights since his move to Bochum.

What is perhaps even more embarrassing for the security agencies is that they apparently had no idea that Sami A. was intending to open his own mosque until a 61-year-old woman tipped them off. The former bin Laden bodyguard had set up a prayer house, also without officials knowing, in an empty building on a Bochumer street that he wanted to rebuild into a mosque, using a front man to do so. But the woman, who worked nights at a nearby residence for the mentally handicapped, informed police of, as one neighbor described them, “the Islamists who come out of the mosque sometime between midnight and two o’clock” and who were “unbearably loud.”

    Europe has invited the Trojan Horse into its gates….and soon will moan in regret.

  • Leonard Wessell

    I hate to disappoint the author, but normal Germans (at least the ones I know) do not seemed at all concerned with the affair, other than, perhaps, a bit of news inbetween soccer games and watch American CSI series. The reporting in the article is new to me. Unless a terrorist kills someone, it is not news of importance. Sorry, just boring info, ALAS! lpw

    the citys administration can´t do anything because it depends on muslim electorate (its SPD party that rules now wants to have its piece of state budget).
    They also fear that muslim youth is going to emulate their french brethern (in fact there were a first drive by shooting in the citys history on the last new years eve and few arson attacks, too) while police is pretty much helpless when it comes to muslim migrant crimes on non-muslim migrants or germans

  • jacob

    Are the German people going to put up with the same crap the French did not long ago from their Muslims,
    because their "authorities" are hamstrung by "Political Correctness" or financial reasons ????

    Or do they need a sort of 9/11 to wake up and deal with this menace the right way ?????

    Are we surprised? Yesterday, it was reported that one of the Jihadist terrorist Free Syrian Army main guy is based in Berlin and German spies are now involved in helping these Saudi/Qatar-royals sponsored Arabic Muslim Brotherhood-led terrorists, to rob the oil/land/minerl (such as gold in Mali) and commiting racist and supremacist GENOCIDE of non-Arabs all over the Mid-East and Africa right now, especially of minority Muslim Alawites, Black Libyans and Kurds, and non-Muslim Christian Assyrians, Mali Christians and Egptian Copts, all the way in Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Tunisia and Libya (Lebanon will be next!)! Looks like the racist and supremacist HOLOCAUST of six million Jews by the ultra-Nationalist Socialist Hitlerr/the German Nazis not so long ago, have not shamed Germany completely, nor teach them real lesson about humanity! Well, the most greedy German weapon industry selling weapons to Arabic Dictator/War Criminals Saudi and Qatar, and massive German investment in Turkey, might have something to do with it! What a horror!

    Looking at it historically , democratic societies seem to breed a counter force of dictatorial, authoritarianism which ,at the last minute, they go to war with. So far the "open" societies have won. But with a counter force backed by 1.2 billion people and trillions of dollars, the next conflict will be horrendous and is in great doubt. China, if it can evolve into a more open society in time, is the wild card.

    Almost ALL Germans were complicit either the murder of jews and non Aryan Germans and other ethnic groups invaded by the Nazis. They supported the Nazis up until the END. Today, they look back (most of the Nazi era are DEAD) and see the horror of their history and are now OVERCOMPENSATING by ignoring the new IslamoNAZI threat to their very existence and the existence of non Muslims in Germany.

    Other Europeans have their own reasons for kissing the butts of their Muslim invaders. After all they are all Europeans, not much to be proud of.

    It is only a matter of time when Europe goes nationalistic since the mainstream parties are ingnoring the average native. Untill the govts stop handing the muslim problem as a law enforcement problem and start giving it a military amd intelligence solution, the natives will get restless until open civil war erupts and there will be no stopping it.

    The German people have other things of more interest on their minds, as do those in the the rest of Europe…… and lets face it America, most people in the U.S.A do not see Islam as a great menace. If they did, they would be protesting in the streets. Most Western populations remain largely ignorant about the true nature of Islam and they will remain so because the large media outlets avoid the subject. Islam is a far greater threat to the well-being of mankind than Fascism and Communism ever were……… but the mass of the people JUST ARN'T INTERESTED…. they live in a dream world where there are Muslim terrorists and the others who are moderate, like to go to the mosque, pray to Allah and think of their kind old Prophet who never did any harm to anyone.

    We have had enough of Arab Islam now and let us go and discuss the "Real Islam" which is the old ancient stream of Hindu lslam ie non-Arab Islam of non-Arab Asia, of which, AfPak is the land of birth.Arab Islam is "for the Arab, by the Arab, of the Arab".Its frame or canvas is Arabia only. Beyond Arabia, it is sheer Imperialism only.
    Whole non-Arab Asia is the great Hindu (non-Arab) World, from Persia right up to the Pacific Rim. Some 40 nations are there in this huge Hindu World.
    Hindu Islam which is non-Jehadi non-violent/democrativ/non-Supremacist/not anti-West/and extremely tolerant is the answer to this problem.India is the land of this original Islam whose language is Sanskrit/not Arabic and which is Vedic/not Koranic. The Holy Vedas are the oldest KORAN of the world.Extensive research is necessary in this area.
    One important point is why these Arabs did not and do not try to establish the 7th century so-called "Caliphate"in their own country or somewhere in the Arab World itself? Why they tried to establish this in the mountains of AfPak which is Old India(ie the Hindu World?). If they are so keen about this Caliphate, they should do this in their own House ie Arabia? This is a big question. Perhaps Pakistan has been behind this idea(the ISI).Pakistan is a product of Terror.As long as Pakistan subscribes to this dangerous ideology, the whole world would be threatened and there won't be peace in the world. Pakistan must change into either "Muslim India" or 'Islamic republic of India", like their once-sister nation B'desh which renounced this very word Pakistan and returned to its original name B'desh. This absurd word Pakistan encourages forces of Radical Islam and Global Jihad. This word must be abandoned and the original word for AfPak which is "INDIA" be adopted again.Only Hindu Islam can solve this problem.
