Al-Shabaab enlists kids in money jihad

April 25, 2011

The Somali jihadist group al-Shabaab has ordered school teachers to count their students, have each student pay one dollar per month toward the cause of Allah, or the student will be conscripted into al-Shabaab’s child army.  The profiteer Muhammad would weep with joy.

Donors to al Jihad bi-al-mal, the money jihad, are doubly blessed under Islamic law.  The wise al-Shabaab leaders are simply help to ensure the eternal paradise for the next generation of Muslim youth.

From AHN today:

Al-Shabaab orders school children in Middle Shabelle to fight or pay

Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab militants in Somalia have told school teachers in the Middle Shabelle region to register their students within 10 days in a bid that militants want to push their find raising program forward.clearpxl

Sheik Mohamed Abu Yahya,  a Al-Shabaab commander in charge of finance, told school teachers in the region’s provincial capital Jowhar that at his group demands to know the real number of school children within ten days.

The militia commander sad that after the registration has ended every student will be required to pay one dollar by the end of every moth as kind of what he described ‘centrifugation’ to Jihad.

“The students must select one of two options to pay the money or to contribute himself to the Jihad, he who doesn’t do either of these will bee seen as anti Islam” the militant militia leader said during the meeting, according to a teacher who demanded anonymity for security reasons during a telephone conversation with AHN.

Several weeks ago, the militants similarly ordered school children in the Elasha Biyaha neighborhood outside the capital to pay one dollar monthly, while every teacher was also told to pay 10% of their salary each month to Al-Shabaab .

Elasha BIyaha is home to about 1.5 million people who fled from their homes in the restive capital since insurgence began early in 2007.

This is a clear signal that the Al-Qadea linked Somali militants are under significant economic pressure which lead them to lose strategic cities south of the country and key trenches in the capital since February this year.

  1. I fall short of words to express my discomfort… what Austrian Hitler did to German kids was condemnable, but what Muslims are doing to their own children is just way beyond any comprehension in civil society…
