Skip to comments.CIA 'suicide bomber' vows revenge in new video (Trusting Muslims could be hazardous to your health)
Posted on 01/09/2010 6:24:29 AM PST by tobyhill
The man believed to be the suicide bomber who killed seven CIA employees and contractors last month appears in a newly released video, in which he vows revenge for the killing of a Taliban leader.
The video shows Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, whom a former U.S. intelligence official identified as the suicide bomber. Al-Balawi's brother told CNN Senior International Correspondent Nic Robertson that the man in the video was his sibling.
In the tape, which aired Saturday on the Arabic satellite news channel Al-Jazeera, al-Balawi says his message is for the CIA and Jordanian intelligence.
The December 30 bombing at a U.S. base in Khost, in southeastern Afghanistan, killed seven CIA operatives and a Jordanian army captain.

Your subtitle is exactly right.
Can’t stomach CNN, but why is that one section of the background being illuminated.
Anyone read Arabic?
Great, now that Obama realizes killing Taliban is being used by the taliban as a “recruiting” tool, we won’t be able to kill bad guys.
The Ann Coulter solution is still the only viable one:
Invade their countries.
Kill their leaders.
Convert them to Christianity
I’m more for nuking them into submission.
That would fall under “Kill their leaders”. Sometimes collateral damage is unavoidable.
...and I would add another, since the families are so eager to share in the glory of their dearly departed, it should be the mission of covert operatives to eagerly allow them to share in the glory, if you know what I mean, and I know you know what I mean.
...until there are no more, of those willing to commit or willing to share.
I’ve seen pictures of some arab countries and they look drab and dry. I know Iraq, Iran, Dubai, Saudia Arabia have some nice places, where the oil money can buy water and construction workers, away from the main cities what’s it like? From some pictures I’ve seen, it looks a lot like Mexico’s outback. Is this the reason these arab/muslims have come here? They sure don’t like us and they hate our way of life, ie, freedom, walking around in shorts, face is free of cover, men don’t wear sheets for headgear....
It goes something like this:
أشهد أن لا إله إلاَّ الله و أشهد أن محمدا رسول الله
And it means essentially: ""There is no god except for Allah alone; Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah"
It is found on the flag of Saudi Arabia, and also found on the flag of al-Qaeda as well.
It looks like this:
That is the flag those bastards were sitting in front of, yep.
Ping (for accuracy)
Yep, that’s correct
Thanks AIT, I appreciate your translation.
Who is this ALLAH? The Christian churches are being bombed for using this term.
Is this Allah different from the traditional meaning of G-D.
I really think we are somehow missing something in the Islam interpretation of Allah.
I couldn’t make out the details of the background flag/banner... but the point is the same. The verbiage is a profession, known as Kalema. I have such a flag/banner, acquired while in Kandahar, Afghanistan. An e-mail transmission verbatim, between two MI types came with the “souvenir,” and I post it as received in hard copy form.
Here is the flag translation that you asked us to look at...
“There is no other God except Allah and Mohammad his prophet.”
Comments: It is called “Kalema.” Which is for every Muslim to believe in their heart and at least one time in their life they should announce it a loud.
***Melissa, not much actionable intelligence here, however of note, it is Arabic... At times Arabic = Al’qadia.
If you can get me the capture info of where it is (was) found and who found it, we can credit them for the find...
Thanks for calling me, glad to help and hope to see you on sat. at you cub. Will call to set up something with you on Thurs. or Friday. Are you able to send me a copy of y’alls battle rythm.
لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله or lā ilāha illallāh muhammadur-rasūlullāh, essentially the profession of faith.
That is why I think that when, in the spirit of shouting out the name of "Allah", one goes and blows up an innocent baby nearby, this cannot be citing the "God" we all know, but must be of Satan. At the risk of paraphrasing Hugo Chavez, "I smell sulfur" whenever I hear that "Allahu Ahkbar" in the jihadist tapes and then watch them blow innocent people up into small bits for no rational reason. Yep. It is of Satan. No doubt.
To paraphrase a guy I just heard on FNC:
“Fighting terrorism by taking your shoes off and outlawing water is like fighting WWII Germany by eliminating German Sausage Stands”.
Right or wrong this strategy worked with Native Americans, the Japanese and the Nazi’s. Kill ‘em until there’s no one left who has an interest in fighting. It’s the only way to deal with zealots.
If you can get your hands on a copy of “Alms for jihad” I’d highly recommend it.
There’s so much more to what’s going on right now that you’d be besides yourself in disgust.
I have been for many years.
