Somalis have condemned the call by al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri for Muslims throughout the world to take up arms and support al-Shabaab.

    An image from video released in October shows al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri speaking from an undisclosed location. This month, he called on Somalis to use violence to support al-Shabaab, a message Somali leaders say citizens will ignore. [SITE Intelligence Group/AFP]

"This new speech made by al-Qaeda's leader comes at a time when al-Shabaab is facing a huge drop in its military capability and an increasing decline in its areas of operation and deployments," said political analyst Hussein Abdullahi Ahmed, a former member of the Islamic Courts Union.

"For this reason, al-Zawahiri is trying to encourage fighters who are stressed and anxious about the unknown future after allied forces expelled them from key areas and cities over which they had control not so long ago," Ahmed told Sabahi.

In a seven-minute audio message released Tuesday (November 6th) on jihadist websites, al-Zawahiri sent a message of encouragement to al-Shabaab and urged Muslims around the world to fight on behalf of jihad.

"This is a flagrant Crusader invasion of the Muslim countries and it makes jihad obligatory on every Muslim who is capable in Somalia and its surroundings and in the rest of the world until the invaders are expelled," al-Zawahiri said. "Therefore, make them taste the fire of jihad and its heat. Pursue them with guerrilla warfare, ambushes and martyrdom-seekers."

Al-Zawahiri's transgressions against Somalia

But Ahmed said al-Zawahiri's message will not carry a lot of weight in Somalia.

"If the leader of al-Qaeda thinks that Somalis listen to his speeches that incite violence and support al-Shabaab, then he is mistaken," Ahmed said. "If he thinks al-Shabaab will gain strength by virtue of his calls to continue fighting, then this will only leave them weaker. Repeated calls by the al-Qaeda leader for al-Shabaab to continue fighting are nothing more than a symbol of the group's weakness."

Ahmed condemned al-Zawahiri's intentions as transgressions against Somalia. "The goal of al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab is to thwart the hopes of the Somali people who are looking forward to a better future that is free from violence and terrorism," he said.

Abdiwahab Ahmed Omar of the National Youth League also condemned the al-Qaeda leader's call to violence. "Al-Zawahiri's message is totally rejected and cannot be accepted at all by Somali youth," he said.

More than 200 representatives of youth organisations met in Mogadishu on November 8th to condemn al-Zawahiri's message.

"The objective of our meeting was to explain our stance, which completely rejects the message of the al-Qaeda leader, and to [make it clear] that we do not support terrorist groups, but rather educating youths and teenagers about the dangers of such calls that come from terrorists," he told Sabahi.

"Al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda always use deception to recruit teenagers under the pretext of defending Islam and jihad against the infidels," he said. "These tricks, however, are useless and the perpetrators have been exposed as people who do not defend Islam. If they are defending Islam, why would they blow up mosques, restaurants and stores? I call on young Somalis, wherever they may be, to reject calls by terrorists."

On Monday (November 12th), members of Ahlu Sunna wal Jamaa, officials from the city of Mogadishu, representatives from civil society groups and civilians came together in a rally against al-Zawahiri and his call to action, Radio Mogadishu reported.

Deeqo Abdulqadir, head of the Wartanabadda district in Mogadishu, told attendees that the Somali people have suffered greatly because of terrorists and therefore should not tolerate any more of their transgressions.

Similarly, Benadir deputy-administrator of security Warsame Mohamed Hassan condemned al-Zawahiri's message and urged civilians to work with security forces to ensure peace in the city.

Call for so-called jihad rejected

Dahir Mohamud Gelle, a former commander in the Islamic Courts Union and former minister of information in the Somali Transitional Federal Government, said al-Zawahiri's call was ineffectual.

"Al-Zawahiri's call has no impact and will not be heeded at all," Gelle told Sabahi, adding that Somalis have rejected the violence al-Qaeda uses to reach its objectives.

"The Somali people know very well what terrorism means in terms of bloodshed and the killing of innocent people, making al-Zawahiri's speech utterly rejected and unacceptable," he said.

Mohamed Hassan Haad, chairman of the Council of Hawiye Elders, one of the largest tribes in central Somalia, also labelled al-Zawahiri's message as ineffectual. "The message of this big terrorist can be described as insane and it falls on deaf ears in Somalia," he told Sabahi.

"The heinous acts perpetrated by al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda are why Somalis suffer from so many problems today, so we cannot accept such silly calls released by leaders of terrorist organisations," he said.

Haad said al-Zawahiri should leave Somalia alone.

"Somalia and Somalis are well aware of their future and that of their country and al-Zawahiri should not interfere in our affairs," he said.

Al-Zawahiri's message came less than a month after a video recording was released of American-born jihadist Omar Hammami, better known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, calling on "the leaders of jihad and virtuous scholars" to intervene and solve the "friction" between al-Shabaab's local leaders and foreign fighters.

    As for the man called Ayman Al-Zawahiri I wish to know his country and nationality. He should go to his country to do such things there rather than conspiring against the peaceful and simple peoples and vandalizing peaceful countries. He must take care of his own country rather than displacing its people everywhere on earth. Fear God O man because what you do has nothing to do with the jihad or Islam. Fear God and com to your senses because facing the God who never forgets or sleeps. Stop because what you have done is more than sufficient. Repent and come to your senses. Shame on you!

    Peace on you all the Muslim people out there. After the greetings, we have had more than enough of our share of fighting and war and we don't need any more fighting. Therefore, now we need to start peace building because we are experiencing the worst period of underdevelopment. For that reason, I am saying that we don't need more fighting and also it is forbidden for a Muslim to kill a fellow Muslim. For those supporting me, please fear God.

We should not be among the ones who forget their religion and we shouldn’t tolerate disbelievers for it is Jihaad. They are part of the enemy and you should protect your people and land from them

I would like to tell the Sheikh to question his vision and opinions on Al Shabaab.

    He is afterall too old. Man Somali has lost 4 generations, so let Somalia alone to develope. Your about to die according to your age, the world needs young and energetic people to take it to another level. my advice to the somlis is that, look at Burundi, Rwanda, and so on......... they are nw looking forward to developement , not triblism, race, religion, name it anymore. Please wake up and together with the other friendly countries who have come up to sell the blood of their children in your counrty for your sake come up with peace. i will glorify the Lord for your success, am one of your peace fighters by Gods grace.

    My comments today concerns the Somali region called NFD. Is it part of Somalia or Kenyan? This is the question I want to ask the readers. It seems that it is part of Kenya which has a particular interest in the region. Has it been thought about or you don't view it as I view? Analyze with me that Kenya has a particular interest in which she wants to take the region or make it like Ogadenia so that it becomes part of Kenya at last and she benefits from the port, Close observation.

    Somalia has been at war for over 20 years and that has not helped. Now that there is a democratically elected Government, there is no need for the Somali Poeple taking up arms again. Enough is enough! Leave the Somali people under their democratically elected Government to organise and develop their country. Somalia has enormous resources(livestock, Minerals, oil, potential for crop agriculture, etc) which could be utilised to bring the country back to the path of development and even overtake some countries in Africa. What is needed is dedication, determination, visionary leadership, discipline of the people and security forces and zero tolerance to corruption and violence. See what Rwanda has achieved in a very short time. Yes Somalia can. DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE LIKE AL-ZAWAHIRI ! ! !

    I am amazed with some of these bunch of idiots blaming the world Jihad movement for the destruction of somalia. In fact somali was ruled by a kufr (apostate) government before its fall just like they want to do it now. People were being banned to learn the real Islamic monotheism (towheed) and were reduced to adore scores of supersitious idolators (mushrikiin). When the war lords were maiming, raping, destoying the social/economic system, it was the same west that were funding them while stealing from our resources. It was untill the Islamic courts union and latter Al-shabaab that sanity returned to Somalia. The end will justify the means and ALLAH is on our side. Insha ALLAH the mujahiduun will be triumphant in the end. As for those brainwashed by the western media, continue day dreaming....we are coming for you.

    God is great. The religion of Islam is not a tribe, neither a color nor a country. It is a faith nursed by people in their hearts. You who is fighting Islam can covert to it tomorrow and you will convert. So how can you fight a faith nursed by people in their heart? If you pronounce the Muslim creed which is actually right then you are my brother and I will not see it as wrong for you to lead me.

    I salute you. First, I would like to express my opinion concerning Somalia from here. Somalia deserves everything that happens to it because they refused to form a government and they don't want the formation of another government. The prime minister denounced the existence of the government of Somaliland. He was really wrong.

    You are rubbish. You are sycophants of the disbelievers. Are you talking of the leader of the believers? The future belong to the Muslims.

    What stake does Eyman Al-zawahiri have in this country because Somalia is ours? Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda should leave us because the Somali community got destroyed and they want peace, prosperity and having good relationship with the rest of the world. Please leave us and leave our country to us. The government of Somalia should do away with terrorists. Thank you. I don't fear death because death is decided by God and we must therefore say the truth. The youth should wake up and protect themselves against these men who have invaded them.
