[quote:Anonymous Coward 31243632:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM1NzE4MzUzXzIwOUZGQzU0] [b]Tunisia - Rear Base for Mali's Jihadists[/b] For jihadists in northern Mali, Tunisia is of strategic importance. For months, the country of the revolution turned into a base for recruitment and deployment of new fighters. Young people often attracted by a form of pure Sharia, but also by the prospect of a jihad against those they call "French crusaders." According to,sources,there are nearly 300 Tunisian jihadists in northern Mali. Tunisian authorities, in contrast, reports that there are only fifty men. Most arrived well before the French strikes, but they stimulate jihad now dreams of many candidates motivated by calls for holy war launched in several major mosques in Tunisia and on the internet, where French interests are routinely designated as a target. But if Tunisia is also strategic for the jihadists in Mali, it is because it serves as a corridor, in the words of President Moncef Marzouki. A corridor for transporting arms coming from Libya via Algeria. These weapons first passed through the northern mountains - where two cells of thirty men belonging to AQIM were dismantled in December - but also the southernmost desert, near the Sahara. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.rfi.fr/afrique/20130122-tunisie-base-arriere-jihadistes-maliens-in-amenas-algerie-aqmi&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dhttp://www.rfi.fr/afrique/20130122-tunisie-base-arriere-jihadistes-maliens-in-amenas-algerie-aqmi%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26client%3Dsafari%26tbo%3Dd&sa=X&ei=nRX_UPr4D8iL0QG3l4GYBw&ved=0CDYQ7gEwAA [/quote]
Background - About a year ago, I stumbled on a website run by a group of students in France. They represented an organization called the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA is its initials in French).
I kept up with their movement to establish an independent Taureg state in Northern Mali. As I followed their statements and the occasional MSM article, it became apparent that something was not quite right. These kids were being set up. I came to believe that I was watching Western intelligence operation to create the pretext for Western intervention in Africa (in other words, I was watching a "false flag" war in the making)...
By early October, the yellow journalism building the case for war was undeniable...So, I decided to create this thread. Using MSM news sources (with occasional commentary posts) I tried to give the background on what is happening in Mali & why it might be happening....
Thanks for reading - Here is my original post...
Who do I root for?
