Islamists in Somali call for help

ISLAM First reported A Somali Islamic Courts defence chief has for the first time called on foreign Muslim fighters to join his movement's war against Ethiopia.

The Ethiopians are kicking their butts, and they need all the help they can get.
"We're saying our country is open to Muslims worldwide. Let them fight in Somalia and wage jihad, and God willing, attack Addis Ababa," Yusuf Mohamed Siad, known as Inda'ade, said. "Today the war is being fought by land and air," Sheikh Mahmud Ibrahim Suley, an SICS official, told reporters in Mogadishu.
And they are getting their butts kicked both ways.
"We want anyone who can help remove the enemy to come in," he told a news conference in the Mogadishu, the Somali capital and an Islamic Courts stronghold. "Our Islamic fighters have taken control of Idale and are heading to other parts where Tigray (Ethiopian) invaders are now based, by the will of Allah, we will liberate our people and country from the Ethiopian invaders,"
And reimpose repressive Sharia Law.
Islamic Courts Information chief Abdurahim Ali Muddey said the AFP. "We are at war with Ethiopia, but not with the government,"
Yes, they don't want to be at war with the government, because they have airplanes that can attack them. They just want to oppress the people of Ethiopia.
Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, the Islamic Courts leader said on Thursday. Somalia's Islamic courts on Monday, June 5, claimed victory over a US-backed warlord alliance after four months of fierce fighting in the capital Mogadishu that claimed the lives of hundreds as the interim government invited the courts to take part in dialogue. "The Joint Islamic Courts are not interested in a continuation of hostilities and will fully implement peace and security after the change has been made by the victory of the people with the support of Allah,"
In other words we will make peace if they let us win.
its chairman Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed said in a statement cited by Agence France-Presse (AFP). He said fighters loyal to the Islamic courts have seized the capital Mogadishu from the US-backed Alliance for the Restoration of Peace and Counter-Terrorism (ARPCT).
