Yemen, Another Front In The War On Terror

Published by at 8:04 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

Osama Bin Laden’s ancestrial homeland is one of the fronts in the war on terror, and news is out today they have had a noteworthy success in fighting the al-Qaeda forces in their midsts. From the details in the story it seems the intel on al-Qaeda is growing and exposing these leaders and cells. We had a similar success this week in Iraq. My gut tells me more and more Muslims are turning against al-Qaeda and turning them into authorities. As Iraqis stand up and swear oaths on the Koran to destroy al-Qaeda, they are setting an example and sending a message to the broader Muslim world that al-Qaeda’s bloody view of Islam can be rejected.

One response so far

    An intriguing report (translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute) from Akhbar Al-Sharq, a Syrian opposition Web site, suggests that the model may be spreading even beyond Iraq:

    Representatives from 55 Syrian Arab tribes have declared the establishment of a joint association called the “Party of the Nation.”

    A communiqué released by the party stated that it “will function democratically, together with the other opposition forces, to change Assad’s criminal dictatorial regime.”

    Who says democracy in the Middle East is dead?
