Shakar Bin Hamal and further armed men, equally
hunted for being members of Al-Qaeda. During that
difficult hunt, Bin Hamal's friend was captured but
the main suspect fled with his men. The incident
took place on Friday 20 near the town of Mukalla
(district of Hadramaut in southern Yemen). Local
authorities are convinced that these armed men are
involved in the attack of a French tanker ("Limburg
incident") which took place at the beginning of last
October. The tanker was able to transport 400 000
tons of crude oil, parts of which leaked into the sea.
In the frame of the "Limburg" attack another incident

belong to a group that is accused of having prepared
an assault in the French town of Strasbourg. Some of
the arrestees are known for their support of Muslim
rebels in Chechenia. As explosives and other related
materials were found in their Paris flats, they are sus-
pected of having prepared an assault on the Russian
embassy in France. At the same time, the seat of

Jabar Awad Al-Assiri (yellow marked on the above

Assad. And he proved his [adopted] name "Father of
the refugees" when killing during U.S. incursions in
"As investigations additionally revealed, Oussama
Bin Laden visited that camp alt least three times, sug-
gesting discussions on a "Holy War against America
and how to kill the infidels". Meanwhile, the idea
of attacking ships that pass the Strait of Gibraltar
began to crystallize after the events of 11 September
2001, yet it was abandoned. Nonetheless, their entire
move from Afghanistan was realized after the attack
on America. After having passed some (...) town, they
directed themselves to Lahore [Pakistan] and finally
turned to Karachi. There they met with Al-Madau
Abad-Allah Al-Ramadi (in the middle of the above
photo), who had fought side by side with the Taliban."
In addition to the abandoned plan of attacking U.S.
and British ships in the Strait of Gibraltar, there are
further projects of Al-Qaeda dicussed by Al-Hyat :

ings and opened fire on foreigners in Ryadh, the capital of Saudi
According to ARAB NEWS (19/05/2003), that cited the Saudi
interior minister, Prince Naif, five terrorists could be identified.
Three of them were already known as members of an Al-Qaeda
cell in Ryadh and had been on the run following a raid on that
cell on May 6, when all 19 of its members, including 17 Saudis,
managed to escape. Four members of the Al-Qaeda cell could
now be arrested. They are considered to have had knowledge
about the recent attack in advance, yet without participating in
the Ryadh operation themselves. Prince Naif told the press that
there was no information regarding Saif Al-Adel, an Egyptian
reported by the Washington Post to be the mastermind behind
the Riyadh bombings. "The American authorities have to ac-
knowledge this. We have not received anything that confirms
or denies the matter," he said.
About 44 people are expected to have died in suicide attacks
of terrorists, related with Al-Qaeda, in the Moroccan capital

Lack of Attacks Thought to Show
Group Is Nearly Crippled
" The failure of al Qaeda to launch terrorist attacks
against the United States or its allies during the war
in Iraq has bolstered a growing belief among U.S.
intelligence agencies that 19 months of worldwide
counterterrorism operations and arrests have nearly
crippled the organization ... " [excerpt from original]
In his tape record, Aiman Al-Sawahiri is challenging
the Muslims to chase away all "criminals" from the
Middle East. Embassies should be attacked and eco-
nomic interests should be wrecked, regarding the U.S.,
Britain, Australia and [most surprisingly] Norway.
It is estimated that Al-Qaeda, under the guidance of
Oussama Bin Laden, is responsible for the last attacks
in Saudi Arabia and Morocco where they supported
some tens of Muslim warriors.
As to President Bush`s evaluation of terrorism,
there is a summary of characteristic comments,
published on May 26, 2003, by TIME magazine :
28 November 2002 Following Bin Laden's announcement on 13/11/2002 :
Devastating suicide bomb explosion at an Israeli-owned hotel in the Kenyan seaside resort of Mombasa, accompanied
by a double missile attack on an Israeli charter airliner taking off from the city’s airport. Both assaults were not wholly
unexpected. A month ago, Al-Qaeda said in one of its taped messages that it would go after Jewish targets worldwide.
Despite the claims of responsibility from a hitherto unknown Palestinian group, Al-Qaeda therefore remains the likely
perpetrator. [ARAB NEWS, 29 November 2002, and different western media]. Up to now, there is no definite proof
of Al-Qaeda having staged those incidents that are reminding their US Embassy attacks in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.
6 December 2002 Israeli prime minister Sharon accuses Lebanon and the Palestinians for nourishing Al-Qaeda:
Both, Lebanese and Palestinian sources reject Sharon's accusation that their territories are offering an ideal environ-
ment for elements that compose Al-Qaeda. Rashid Abu Shabak, the commander of the Palestinian forces for security
and prevention, declares: Sharon is referring to the fact that some individuals, belonging to Al-Qaeda, are located in
that region. He is determined to seek a pretext for another incursion of Israeli troops. [ AL-JAZEERA, 06/12/2002 ]
Key information on Bin Laden's most recent background and the lack of U.S. intelligence to get him, has been
published by THE WASHINGTON TIMES (20/11/2002). Here are some excerpts from the full length article:
Conspiracy of silence ?by Arnaud de Borchgrave
With fresh evidence that Osama bin Laden is still alive and kicking
and with his friends and protectors about to take over the provincial
governments of two of Pakistan's four provinces, as well as a share
in the new national coalition that will now run the country (under
the watchful eye of President Pervez Musharraf), a key question for
the U.S. intelligence community remains unanswered. Why has the CIA
ignored for 11 consecutive months the only anti-al Qaeda Pakistani
tribal leader who had tracked bin Laden's movements ever since his
escape from Tora Bora last Dec. 9?
Could it be that the intelligence community, already overburdened
by the requirements of the coming war on Iraq and the war on terror,
is not too interested in a "we've got Osama alive" melodrama that
might detract from the current "get Saddam" priority objective?
There is also the unspoken fear that a dead or captured bin Laden
would trigger hundreds of smaller terrorist incidents worldwide.
An old acquaintance of Oussama Bin Laden shows up again for joining the club of those willing to defeat
U.S. invasion: A message from Mullah Omar, former leader of the Taliban who governed Afghanistan in
the pre-Karzai era, recently appeared on the web. That website in Arabic has been discovered by a Thai
newspaper and cited, one day later, by the Chinese daily XING DAO [15/12/02]. The Chinese headline :
"Omar launches a statement, saying that he succeeded in escaping during the pursue and capture campaign."
In his statement, Omar condemns the U.S. attempt to launch a military aggression against Iraq. He equally
calls the numerous groups of Muslims to unite and start an offensive against the United States of America.
The underlined parts of the neighbouring Chinese text should represent Mullah Omar's own words.
Their translation is as follows: "The Americans and their faction have directed aggression against
our nation and our territory, yet without achieving their purpose. Not only crime, extermination and
losses did they bring to those small and weak nations who faced their hostility, but poverty as well.
Long enough they marched on the road of damnation, and very soon they will speak to themselves :
Let's hope we didn't commit all those crimes !"

Bin Laden and Al-Sawahiri Showing up
AL-JAZEERA (11/09/2003) headline: U.S. enquiries are dealing with the tape of Ben Laden and the message of al-Sawahiri excerpts from the Arabic text: ... (There are) those who are also trying to concentrate themselves on the precision in sound registration as far as it concerns al- Sawahiri who has confirmed that " fighting against the U.S. has not yet begun ". ... And the responsible one who insisted on (us) to abstain from any questioning of his identity said " the technical analysis of, both, the video and sound tape is intended to determine if it is really the voice of al-Sawahiri speaking and if it is possible to receive certain indications or informations " reveiling his temporary occupation (plannings). ... The tape, communicated to Al-Jazeera on the eve of the second anniversary of the September 11 attacks, has finished with (such) predictions that have increased weight on the death of Ben Laden who (in- stead) appears with voice and image after a long absence and who returned to (his) unbroken activity of a Taliban in the caverns of Afghanistan of the year 2001. ... Al-Sawahiri directed a message of help and cooperation to the resistance (movement) in Iraq. Addressing its fighting members in Iraq, (he promised) to concentrate on (their subject) and to dedicate (himself) to their support. " Allah being with you, the people are in favour of you as they rely upon Allah. And they will tear the Americans into pieces like the lions do with their animals of prey. ... Lets bury them on their Iraqi graveyard !"

The "mysterious" detonations of MadridAL-QUDS AL-ARABI (12/03/2004) the Palestinian daily published a letter
from the Brigades of Abi Hafez al-Misri who are claiming responsibility for
some devastating train bombings in Madrid that had taken place the day
before, killing about 200 persons and injuring another 1500:
Main headline: "Al-Qaeda preparing Trains of Death in Madrid"
ﺍﻟﻘﺎﻋﺪﺓ ﺗﺘﺒﻨﻰ - ﻗﻄﺎﺭﺍﺕ ﺍﻟﻤﻮﺕ - ﺑﻤﺪﺭﻳﺪ
The above mentioned letter was published under the following title:
The Brigades of Abi Hafez al-Misri state that these bombings are
"only part of a settlement of ancient scores with the Crusaders of
Spain who are now allied with America in their war against Islam".
As different circumstances indicate (material of detonators, choice of targets),
the Spanish separatist organization ETA cannot be blamed for those incidents
that are rather untypical for them. By the way, sentiments in the Islamic world
are not in favour of Spain since their Aznar government is unyieldingly insisting
on playing a role in the U.S. "fight against terrorism" in Iraq. As a member of the
Iraqi group Ansar al-Sunna put it: "We are feeling ourselves being more close to
Spain, but its your country that has betrayed us. Even though, we prefer the
heads of U.S. (soldiers), there might be Spanish (citizens) among the fallen in
a very near future." [EL MUNDO, Madrid, 05/10/2003]
"Nos sentíamos muy cerca de España, pero su país nos ha traicionado;
aunque preferimos las cabezas estadounidenses,
en un futuro muy próximo habrá bajas españolas."
An Unexpected ResurrectionBin Laden in his speech to the people of America on
the eve of the U.S. Presidential Elections in 2004 :
" .........., I tell you in truth, that your security is not
in the hands of Kerry, nor Bush, nor al-Qaida. No.
Your security is in your own hands. And every state
that doesn't play with our security has automatically
guaranteed its own security. "
And the Monkey Award of Terrorism goes to ...
Will Al-Qaeda decide to play the "political card"
more often in the future ?
PEOPLE`S DAILY, Beijing, after the propagation of
the above mentioned Bin Laden speech (02/11/2004)
And here is an external comment on Al-Qaeda .....
Latest News from the UndergroundAL-JAZEERA 16/12/2004 broadcasting another message from Bin Laden :
Bin Laden calling for an offensive to be launched
"In a letter [i.e. a tape record] especially directed to the Muslims in the
Al-Sawahiri on PalestineJune 2005 : While the general elections in Palestine are
still being prepared, Al-Sawahiri gives his comment on
the position of militant Hamas activists who are now
ready to become serious members of parliament.
January 2006 : Now that Hamas has won the elections,
it makes sense to remember Al-Sawahiri from the Arabic
text of his original speech as cited by Al-Jazeera :
" Sawahiri shows his dislike of the Palestinian "Mujahedins "
and accuses them of letting themselves being dragged to
become the puppets of an election, a behaviour that could
only result in severe damage to the Palestinian authorities'
March 2006 : Showing up once again within a few weeks
only, Al-Sawahiri attacks Hamas for retiring from its task
of resistance and for following a route of particularism that
requires political arrangements. (Al-Jazeera 05/03/2006)
Al-Sawahiri and the WestFebruary 2005 : In another video, released by Al-
Jazeera on February 20, Sawahiri complained about
the fact that there was no naming the benefits that had
been luring Washington into the region. He particularly
pointed at the benefits of Guantanamo concentration
camp, the real nature of which Al-Sawahiri was willing
March 2006 : In the above cited message, spread
by Al-Jazeera on March 5 2006, Al-Qaeda's No. 2
rises up against Western governments. Arabic text :
"There should be a loyal attitude of the community
when it comes to attack the crusaders by hand and
tongue, by word and iron." To serve that purpose
"Al-Sawahiri encourages the launching of a multitude
of attacks against the West, while taking the incidents
of New York and London as a model, and he urges
an unspecified stop of all operations that are leading
to a theft of crude oil from the Muslims."
Still Alive and KickingJanuary 2006 : Bin Laden and Al-Sawahiri are still alive and puzzling western
security agencies. Shortly following the emergence of further tapes from both
of them, some unidentified force hit a remote village in northern Pakistan, killing
women and children and leaving much U.S. war scrap behind, such that the
Pakistani government felt obliged to summon the U.S. ambassador. Only some
days later, Sawahiri showed up again, confirming that he was not among the
victims which had been previously suspected by official sources.

The United Nations have been targeted as a "nest of the global infidels". The overall rate of deaths is 60. (تنظيم القاعدة ببلاد المغرب الإسلامي) source: Website of Al-Qaeda, North-African branch remark: As 800 kg of explosives are a huge amount, necessarily to be carried by a truck, it could be imagined that an "explosive of a blasting capacity of 800 kg of TNT" has been used in both incidents.
AL-JAZEERA TV on July 23, 2008 "An alleged member of Osama Bin Laden's inner circle stands trial in Guantánamo. Salim Ahmed Hamdan is alleged to have conspired with Osama Bin Laden. Prosecutors allege he had two surface -to-air missiles in his car. Hamdan was captured in November 2001 in Afghanistan just after the U.S. invasion. Now, he is accused of conspirancy, helping Bin Laden escape and providing material support for terrorism. Hamdan's lawyers say his only connection with Al-Qaeda was as a driver and mechanic."
