"Just because Al-Shababa, or what ever they are named is happy in regards to these attacks, doesn't mean they are behind it. "
"Al-Shabab is well aware that the killing of civilians, innocence is against Islam, they are hardcore Islam believers. "
Uh, they have now claimed responsibility..."An al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group claimed responsibility Monday for twin bombings in Uganda that
killed 74 people watching the World Cup final on TV, saying the militants would carry out attacks "against our enemy" wherever they are. "
You also said -
"In regards to their hate for soccer:
They have a right to hate soccer, while Somalia/Mogadishu is in a state of chaos, people are brainwashed in to doing nothing to stop the conflict, and
to save the country, instead sitting in front of TV, doing nothing.
There is something called priority, in a state of chaos you don't sit in front of TV and forget about reality, that is what brainwashing is called.
I am reposting this link for you.. www.washingtonpost.com...
where I read that the
militants are abducting children off the street and forcing them to join the military...one kid says he was conscripted at 11!
in that article you'll find jems like
""If we keep the young generation for football, al-Shabab can't recruit them to fight," said Somali soccer federation head Abdulghani Sayeed, who
stays at a heavily guarded hotel in the capital, Mogadishu. "This is really why al-Shabab fights with us."
Also another priceless jem "This is the last warning for you to take the path of Islam. If you don't, you have no choice but to die," the e-mail
read. "Do you think the non-believer police can guarantee your security?"
