Behind the politics and dirty tricks that demonised Libya’s Colonel Qathafi
By David Guyatt
“It’s an easy hit.” The voice of Lester Coleman, former Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) operative and joint author of the explosive book: “Trail of the Octopus”, echoed hollowly down the line. Lester answered my question in four simple words. I had asked him why the US continues blaming Libya’s Qathafi for all the woes in the world. Since his enforced “exile,” Lester has become something of an expert on Libya.
“Listen David,” he continued, “It’s all domestic politics… Libyan skulduggery plays to the ‘Red-necks’ who inhabit middle America.” Lester, an accomplished linguist launched into a humorous back-woods drawl to emphasise his point. “Most Americans believe anything they’re told about ‘Ay-rabs’ “, he said, “particularly at politically sensitive times or during an election year. One reason, perhaps, why the US had threatened to use a nuclear weapon against Libya in spring of 1996….” (SIR TEDDY TAYLOR)

An exclusive interview with Abu Hafs the Mauritanian, the former mufti of the base
Abu Hafs, named Mahfouz was born father, was one of the three most important figures in al-Qaeda after Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri. Was head of the Shariah; any it was a mufti of Al-Qaeda in its infancy.
Publication Date: December 12, 2013, 7:42 pm
Nouakchott December 12, 2013, Abdulrahman Asia, News Now –
Last year, 2012, was full of life and in the march of Abu Hafs the Mauritanian, the former mufti of the base. In the first half of the year, moved from Iran to his country of Mauritania, and in the second half he was released to live among his family in Nouakchott.
Abu Hafs, named Mahfouz was born father, was one of the three most important figures in al-Qaeda after Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri. Was head of the Shariah; any it was a mufti of Al-Qaeda in its infancy.
After the attacks of September atheist, leaving the Abu Hafs, al-Qaida in protest against the attacks and what was to be followed. Later, he fled with the others, also from the top leaders of al-Qaeda, to Iran. There, he spent over ten years to deport him to his country.
The development of events in this way has important implications; man who remains exclusively at the base of the Ansar al-Shariah, which is the same bucking roads in the targeting of civilians; was keen interpreted as violating this building on the foundations and religious legitimacy. Observer of this talk will not take long before you notice that while the trade-Qaeda and Mwaloha religion, we find that the leaders of the important and at an advanced level of science discovered the ills of the rule; chose to stay away.
In only the second time in its history, in which the Abu Hafs interview with an Arab media or global, we met at his home in Nouakchott and Astodhana him on many things such as: How do you see the base path now? What’s his opinion of the attacks carried out by al-Qaeda supporters in more than one country in the world? What does it say about Syria, and Iran? What does he know about the killing of Osama bin Laden?
Here’s the text of the interview.
News Now: Welcome to this meeting, private and exclusive on the TV screen, which now host the third man in al-Qaeda and Muftiha previously, Sheikh Mahfouz was born father, known as Abu Hafs the Mauritanian. Welcome to us.
Abu Hafs: Welcome and hello, ÍíÇßă God.
News Now: First of all, thank you for hosting us accept to answer some of the questions that concern the viewers valued.
Abu Hafs: Welcome, ÍíÇßă God.
News Now: What has happened until you become the base of approach? Describe that moment that you realized that al-Qaeda were not right.
Abu Hafs: In the name of God the Merciful. Praise be to God alone. And blessings and peace be upon the Prophet after him: Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions and followers and their followers until the Day of religion. This is the question you need to answer it bootable.
Al-Qaeda when it was founded at the end of the eighties was established for jihad for the sake of God and resist the Soviet occupiers in Afghanistan has done well in this task even defeated the Russians out of Afghanistan, and even the Communist regime fell in Kabul in the spring of 1992 from the last century AD.
Al-Qaeda has not anything in this paragraph calls to resign from it, but every business is good and satisfactory. Since fell Kabul in the hands of the Mujahideen began fighting among the jihadi parties to power in Kabul, and the back of the base that fight for power and government, not a holy war for the sake of God, considered sedition and left him and went out to the Sudan, and it was also an act rightly toward those events. Sudan began a period from 1992 to 1996.
In this period, the al-Qaida with the help of the Sudan in the field of infrastructure, investment and agriculture; did well, because this is a matter of cooperation in righteousness and piety. It was not in this period of the work of al-Qaeda is calling them my resignation and withdrawal from work has been satisfactory and the approval of the initiated.
Drove the base of the Sudan in 1996 and moved to Afghanistan. The second stage of Afghanistan.This is the stage that began experiencing some sort of disagreement between me and Sheikh Osama bin Laden, God rest his soul. This was his disagreement causes. The most important of these reasons is the Declaration of Sheikh Osama mercy be upon jihad against the Americans in this period.
Of course no doubt that any Muslim to his jealousy of his religion and faith and the nation rejects the presence of U.S. troops and the West in the Arabian Peninsula and in the Holy land in various Muslim countries. But the rejection and condemnation of this thing and declare jihad without the presence of the elements of this jihad and without the presence of suitable conditions for this Jihad something else.
The first disagreement with Sheikh me on this point. I was objecting to the declaration of jihad against the Americans at that time without the presence of the elements of this jihad. The second reason of reasons controversial with Sheikh Rahmatullah it is continuing to breach the orders of Mullah Omar, leader of the Taliban movement with respect to its operations against the Americans.
Of course, Sheikh Osama Mtroja out of Sudan by his friends and his friends in the government of Sudan. And when he came to Afghanistan, to deny his former companions as well: the Rabbani government and Alciafa which ruled Kabul. This government has agreed to hand him over to the states with him and calling him. In this period came the Taliban captured Kabul and seized power in Afghanistan and embraced Sheikh mercy be upon Ute and defended him and lost a lot of friends in order to protect the Sheikh and resisted a lot of pressure from the Saudi authorities and the Pakistani and U.S. in this area.
Was a duty to show Sheikh degree of cooperation and understanding of the position and conditions of the movement and not to embarrass them in military action can not afford to reactions on them. But Sheikh did not do it. But insisted on fighting his war contrary to the orders of Mullah Omar. That was another reason of the reasons for disagreement with Sheikh God rest his soul.
Is it was supposed to take him Sheikh is that a guest at the Taliban, Mullah Omar, is the legitimate ruler of this country and the declaration of jihad and war is the prerogative of the Muslim ruler and not the prerogative of the members of the nation, but Sheikh also did not take it with that recognizes the legitimacy of Mullah Omar and insisted on fighting his war against the Americans in the end what caused the fall of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The third reason of the reasons I disagree with Sheikh Rahmatullah it is the lack of discipline in taking fatwas legitimacy, sometimes, I’m Chairman of the Committee is supposed legitimacy does not work in any organization without the permission of the approval of the Shariah Committee; and more likely that the work of the Committee issued a fatwa against the legitimate legitimacy.
Sheikh mercy of God in the things that he knew that I oppose where he served on some of the work without consulted sometimes in the things that make the dissenting opinion he was also does not adhere to that view and this is also a socket another not because he did not take my opinion, but because it is, in my view did not take Fatwa Lalit must take them. The fourth reason in the Turkish rule is extreme centralization of Sheikh Osama God rest his soul in the management of the organization.
The sheikh’s mercy be upon everything was in everything did not give the powers or roles of the Shura Council, for example, or the sub-committees and other officials, and this was objectionable to me also. I see that you are bound by the Shura and that what was agreed upon Shura Council may not be the exclusion Emir Sheikh was another opinion.
These reasons existed in recent years in Afghanistan, but intensified and concentrated in periods brief before the events of September, was the insistence of Sheikh on the events of September with Mkhafattna him in the legitimacy and our opposition to him in the Shura Council and the opposition Taliban him and all Jihadist movements in the scene in Afghanistan. This was borderline, which prompted me to submit my resignation to Sheikh God rest his soul.
News Now: Have you had to blame after Anfsalk from the norm?
Abu Hafs: Many of the older brothers in the organization was not surprised by the decision of my resignation because they were on the lookout for a cooling period in the relationship between me and the last Sheikh God rest his soul, and the dispute was between me and him; therefore not surprised many when they announced my resignation. Some enthusiastic young kids probably released some talk about them and I expand my chest to blame these Atabhm and as long as a good intention and their destination intact.
News Now: After the death of Osama bin Laden, have you changed the rule?
Abu Hafs: I do not think that the death of Sheikh Rahmatullah it caused a major change in the organization because Sheikh in epochs latter was his leadership of the organization leadership symbolic, but it was central regulation all in the state of atrophy and shrinking, while most of the activities of al-Qaeda is the activities of branches in other regions and therefore did not Sheikh was the absence of a significant impact on the organization.
But the organization knew a change before the death of Sheikh God rest his soul. The organization has grown branches in multiple regions, and this is what it was not before. The organization began to work was a central organization may be abandoned by a fighter rulers and confront regimes. This was not the policy of the central regulation, but this has happened in the years following the invasion of Afghanistan and this was a reaction to the invasion.
Organization at a time when I arrived in the events of September and got the invasion of Afghanistan was comprised of dozens of individuals or hundreds at the latest in Afghanistan, but the war turned him into a global organization and branches transcontinental thought applies in reality the nation and therefore they move automatically and self without reference to Sheikh and therefore did not the absence of influential Sheikh major impact on the movement and functioning of the organization.
News Now: How do you look at what happened in Nairobi and Peshawar?
Abu Hafs: Perhaps you mean the events of the mall and the church. After all, I already said repeatedly that I reject the use of force and the killing of innocent civilians, unarmed for any reason.
News Now: No doubt you Mtaatbon what is happening in Syria and the Syrians complain day of practice of the State of Iraq and the Levant, calculated on the base. How do you see what you are doing?
Abu Hafs: in fact, the Syrians complain about many things. Syrians complain about the system being slaughtered people in the world watching the tragedy. Syrians complain of a sectarian war led by Iran, Hezbollah and the Shiites of Iraq or some Iraqi Shiites. Syrians complain of countries pushed them to arm the revolution and then abandoned at a critical time. The Syrians could be complaining about the actions and mistakes of some groups affiliated with the Islamic Jihad.
I have no details in this regard, but I do not rule out that some of these groups have the kind of hyperbole in atonement and have the kind of expansion in the shedding of blood. Do not rule out that there is such a thing and I recommend those that fear God in themselves and in the people who came to support him and getting caught judgments on other controls and Sunnah and Platform Sunnis and the community and that the fear of God in the blood of Muslims. “There is still one in affluence of their religion unless shed blood is forbidden.”
News Now: It is said that Ayman al-Zawahiri, lost control of the branches of al-Qaeda, including its branch in the Levant. How do you see management Zawahiri things?
Abu Hafs: I have no details on the nature of the relationship between Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri and the organization’s branches in the various regions, but I do not rule out that the distance and geographical distance between these branches and between the central leadership and the difficulty of communicating and conditions prosecution and stalking experienced by everyone.
Do not rule out that this causes in poor communication between the leadership and branches, but I saw in the recent period in the Internet some guidance from Dr. Ayman and some commands even the branches in Iraq and the Levant, inviting them to commit to these instructions, and those instructions canceled for the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq, Achham and order him to branch Iraq commitment borders Iraq and branch Sham Sham commitment limits. This indicates that between him and them continue and has some kind of influence on them but do not know how strong the conditions that influence.
News Now: If I were al-Zawahiri, would you be any different?
Abu Hafs: wondrous question. This question hyperbolic assumption in fact. I do not think that in the near future I’ll be somewhere Zawahiri. Exceeded this question to the other.
News Now: What do you recommend Zawahiri?
Abu Hafs: I would advise Zawahiri to fear God Almighty. Strengthening its God is the Almighty God’s commandment to Olin and others advise him to avoid errors; repeating the mistakes that occurred in previous periods do not doubt that, on the lookout for them. And advise him to exert more effort in guiding the organization’s branches and stand in the face of a wave of extremism in the atonement and the expansion of the lawful blood of Muslims. Lawful Muslim blood is great and dangerous and atone Muslims gliding serious and large. This is one of the most errors where they are located jihadist groups.
News Now: Do you agree with those who say that al-Zawahiri made bad decisions made many people suffer at the base?
Abu Hafs: When I left the base was not for Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri’s role in making crucial decisions for the organization. It is not the decision maker. And then after that it was most activities and the activities of Al-Qaeda branches; branches often take their own decisions without reference to the central leadership. And therefore I do not remember the decisions taken are described as bad, Dr. Ayman, not even the other. I do not recall anything of this decision because I left the organization for a long time. But on one occasion I heard him speak for the brothers in Hamas strongly unit without an estimate of their circumstances.
There is no doubt that the advice is required, but it is important to assess the conditions of the others. Many people know that the dead meat need to be authorized by hunger. But few people know that the need to eat a dead policy allows policy. Brothers in Hamas in special circumstances and have some things that they may not be convinced by the selection in the case but the case is different from the case of having to choose. A virtue of necessity, but should should not be exaggerated. If you were to place you are less severe and more appreciative to put the brothers in Hamas.
News Now: You were the head of the Ansar al-Shariah and al-Qaida in this important position. You were mufti of the base. As a human being lived experience and felt the right thing, what do you say to the Muslim youth who was influenced by ideas of al Qaeda?
Abu Hafs: I want to correct an issue which I was not convinced then thought otherwise. I thought that it is now thought that I had before. The rule is that I came out of my view of what was a common line between her and me. This left. This is an issue.
My advice to young people is, as I said, that the fear of God Almighty. Strengthening its God is the Almighty God’s commandment to Olin and others. The second is my will for them to be aware and knows that jihad, as is the pinnacle of Islam, a worship which does not modify anything, however, he must of terms and ingredients. Without these conditions, and the ingredients does not achieve its goals of jihad and does not entail the desired fruit from behind.
Jihad, he must of the elements of legitimacy. Constituents are met legitimacy of the legality of the jurisprudence of the opinions of scientists working collectors Sharia between science and science reality and the fear of God Almighty. It is true that the holy war or jihad to announce all of the bear.Had a good intention and purpose properly. No need for jihad elements of material; these tangible factors known to the people of expertise and competence.
Then I would advise these young people something emphasized by more than once a dimension atone for Muslims. Prophet peace be upon him says:
Who said to his brother, B,
O faithless lost by one.
The approach Sunnis puts severe conditions and controls in the door of penance and Alvesar and judge others. Unfortunately, many young people do not abide by this approach and will expand in the atonement, interpretation and judgment on others. Other commandment is to guard against the blood of Muslims. And stay away from indulging in it. God Almighty says:
“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein. Wrath of God upon him and prepared him a great punishment.”
The Prophet peace be upon him says:
“If you met by Muslim, Sevehma, murderer and the victim in the fire.”
The Prophet peace be upon him say, a side Kabah:
“What Otaibk and best Rihk, and I will extol the greatest denied you! Which is the soul of Muhammad in his hand, for the sanctity of the insured greatest when God denied you; blood and money and thought it only the best.”
He says peace be upon him:
“No one’s still in affluence in his religion unless it pours blood is forbidden.”
Muslim blood is great.
So what got in the era of strife companions, God bless them, the senior companions to retire from this sedition. Saad bin Abi Waqas may Allah be pleased with him, one of the Shura six;, one of the ten promised Paradise; what Auh to fighting in that strife that took place at that time, he said:
“Do not fight until Totoni the sword of his eyes and tongue and lips shows believer from the infidel.”
Abdullah between the ages may Allah be pleased with him, he refused to engage in any of that. A man once came to him, he said to him:
“O Abu Abdulrahman The Almighty God says: ‘If two sects of the faithful battled make peace between them, the one by the other Bgt that wants to Faqatheloa Tfe to the command of Allah.’ Why is not that a non-fighting community? “
He said to him:
“O son of my brother. Seconded that this verse does not fight love to be loaned out this verse.” Come and read as saying: “And whoever kills a believer intentionally reward Hell to abide therein. Wrath of God upon and cursed him and prepared for him a great punishment.”
As well as Malik bin Marwan, came to Ayman bin Khuraim and invited him to fight with him. He said to him, Ayman bin Khuraim:
“My father and grandfather have seen with the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him the battle of Badr., But a covenant not to fight a man says no Guelleh but God and Mohammed is His Messenger. Jitna you the innocence of the fire, fought with you.”
“Go out from me.”
He went out with him repeating verses of poetry in which he says:
I am not the murderer of a man praying on the last Sultan of Quraysh Ali and his dominion iniquity; God forbid ignorance and indiscretion
Companions, God bless them, even those who entered the fighting interpret, regretted it.
Ali bin Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him say in two rows; Hassan may Allah be pleased with him says to him:
“God shrine taller and Saad Abdullah bin Omar. Whether the land that the wages of the great; albeit a sin that his mistake of walking. What you think it is a total. “
And history bears witness to the fact that many of the movements that the purpose of changing the evil and corrupt regimes on the Revolution ended in failure and turned into a tragedy, with the owners counted wage and want reform, but their actions were not tuned controls Shara So those were the result.
News Now: Can you tell us about why you choose to Iran after Anfsalk rule is left to you?
Abu Hafs: I actually did not choose Iran a choice, but I had compelled them. When we landed we did not have Afghanistan and outlet port only to Pakistan or to Guerin. Pakistan’s known position; Pervez Musharraf was more than U.S. President George W. Bush; thus there was no way out except to Iran.In fact, Iran has made an offer and are ready to receive us in these circumstances, the postion we are not obliged to find other.
News Now: How was your stay in Iran? Did I met during which Iranian officials?
Abu Hafs: my stay in Iran was a range of generous hospitality in the first, to Aaktal unjust in phase thereafter; to the combination of the two at a later stage. I met some officials of the rank of minister or below. I met some scholars and some of their officials; well as security officials who were my relationship with them directly.
News Now: Was Iran Tstvida of your presence there?
Abu Hafs: There is no doubt that Iran is a play on all the ropes. It is allied with the person and allied it at the same time. Iran helped the Americans in the occupation of Afghanistan and has hosted some of the elements of al-Qaeda and the Taliban at the same time. There is no doubt that our presence was then puts her hand and bargain can trump it, but you can play them when necessary. From this standpoint, was retaining the existing brotherhood then.
News Now: You came out and Abu Ghaith. What about the others? What can you say to parents who now see you!?
Abu Hafs: I say to them was left but a few of the brothers as I know. Iran remained almost in all three families, who are in good conditions. Much better than before. God willing, the Almighty is pleased guardians and make them respite and brought them out from where they are. I say to parents: be diligent in prayer and patience you
And the Lord coming down out of the narrows decreed tired and when the director of God.
What narrowed persisted circles spaced and was thinking that do not release Faraj Allah willing, soon God Almighty Yemen them with patience and freedom from the situation where they are and Yemen on the rest of the Muslim Btafraj Cirbethm God willing.
News Now: Abu Ghaith prisoner now on charges of terrorism and there are others. Was it worth all the fuss and this Wearing rings?
Abu Hafs: Sheikh Abu Ghaith was not a terrorist. Sheikh Abu Ghaith brother Fadel. Well I guess we do not recommend anyone to God. It is one of the preachers who came in the last period to Afghanistan was not related to any military action did not come until only shortly before the events of September.After the events a little out of Afghanistan and stayed with us in Iran to be arrested in Turkey while on his way to his country. Sheikh Abu Ghaith is not a terrorist at all. Sheikh Abu Ghaith, I was with him in the last period in Iran before I left.
He objector Kathy ramen work Qaeda and unapproved. Tell me about his desire to return to his country to continue his advocacy, educational and Imamate and the rhetoric of his mosque in Kuwait where he was before he went to Afghanistan. Sheikh Abu Ghaith, a problem that his country did not help him, but it has taken on a right to spend unfairly stripped of his citizenship and did not allow him to return and made it a major cause because the arrests.
Turkey remained in the period and it was possible for the state to help him to return to his country and to correct and put it but you do not. I am surprised at the fact that such a policy taken by some countries against its citizens stripped of their nationality and to stop them and not give them a chance to correct their situation. Even the Americans were detained Americans fighting with the mujahideen did not Egerteke of their nationalities were not Angulwhm to Guantanamo, but Hakmohm according to U.S. law. The fact that Sheikh Abu Ghaith’s worth it for the efforts to return to his country. And charged with terrorism does not mean he is a terrorist never. Yum participate in any military action
was objecting to many of the acts of al-Qaeda.
News Now: Are you afraid Lhh be your destiny fate of Abu Ghaith. Do you consider that the Iranians plotted it?
Abu Hafs: the fact exposed to many risks, but God looks after me, and which can protect me was praise and thanks and ask God Almighty to preserve all the brothers everywhere. In fact, I did not find conclusive signs or conclusive evidence that the Iranians plotted Abu Ghaith and otherwise. But this is not ruled out in politics Allam. Politics is the doctrine without morality. Many of the brothers were talking to the Iranians, including the type of coordination with the Americans regarding the assassination of some of the brothers who went out from us in Iran. More brothers who went out from us in Iran prison, from the situation that we were finally, and went to Pakistan, were killed pounding drones.
Even brothers who were in Pakistan, we heard they were in the latter refuse to receive the brothers coming from Iran because they were replaced as soon as they come to target these aircraft.But there are those who said that Americans know the location of Sheikh Osama bin Laden, may God have mercy on him by his wife, who was with us in Iran and went to him in Pakistan and said that his slice is planted where that led the Americans to place him after his arrival. I of course have no conclusive evidence to prove this. But these clues were present. Some of the brothers was taking them and adds them ill thinks Faisdgaha.
News Now: What do you know about the organization’s branch in the Arabian Peninsula?
Abu Hafs: Actually, I have no knowledge of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. I am an expert at the base of the mother. I am not well at the base of branches. I do not have enough information and I can not talk about them and judging them.
News Now: You said you could play the role of mentor to the group al-Qaeda in Mali during the military operation against them in the north. Did you have played this role?
Abu Hafs: in fact, it was not between me and them continue special to them, but their advice and my advice to the Mujahideen everywhere, for workers of Islam everywhere, the people of this nation, is the piety of God Almighty. And Usita special Mujahideen is what I referred to earlier during my advice to the youth of the nation in general. I have no more.
News Now: if you were allowed to say anything to them, what do you say?
Abu Hafs: I tell them what Nsahb young people. My answer to the previous question.
News Now: You must have heard about the burning of Al-Qaeda Ahmed Baba Library in Timbuktu.What is the risk when you heard it?
Abu Hafs: I really do not know who burned the library. It may be that soldiers burned Financial. It may be that burned down by French soldiers. African troops. Rule out the possibility that the Muslim as well as Mujahid Mujahid claimed that the burning of the library, which is a treasure of priceless treasures of Arab heritage and Algsalama in this region. Regardless of who carried out this act, he is convicted and Omnker do not have any justification.
News Now: about a year ago and you’re in Mauritania. Can you compare your periods in between al Qaeda and Iran and Mauritania?
Abu Hafs: two in al-Qaeda was a period of Jihad and education and try to reform in this organization.Periods in Iran was the plight of the period and the restriction of freedom, and two in Mauritania, the latter was a period of recreation and ready for a new phase of the call and the Islamic Action, God Almighty to accept.
I am now in the process of establishing an Islamic center for advocacy and research aims to combine advocacy and education on the one hand and between the preparation and completion of scientific research in the areas of hand sticking that concern young people in general and the Islamic awakening of interest to young people in particular.
There is research on the atonement, controls the Sunnis and the community, about the ruling, Jihad, enjoining what is good and it is evil, to depart from the referees, ho for fighting in general: what may and what may not, on the Charter of the moral jihad.There are many practicing jihad but do not adhere to the Charter of ethics. Do not save the disclosure and non-fulfillment of the Covenant and the attack on the dhimmis and the attack on the tourists, the attack on the Almtamnin and others. These many things, God willing, will be the area under consideration and, God willing, through the center, which will start work soon.
News Now: It is noticeable is that you since I came not to travel to Mauritania. Does this mean that you are under a certain control?
Abu Hafs: I told you I did not travel? There is no oversight, no restrictions on my travel. I can travel anywhere I want.
News Now: if he returned your time, would you join to the base?
Abu Hafs: Actually, in my time at the base, and the things you’ve converted a work of allergic when my God, may God Almighty accept them. What do you call husbandry, repair and other things in the organization are Dalkh things do not regret it one of the oldest. I do not feel that I do not remember you during my time at the base of any action regret it owner.
News Now: What is the fate of al-Qaida in your opinion?
Abu Hafs: The rule is part of the state of the nation’s rejection of the reality experienced. Is the secretion of this fact and express a range of people of this nation for their rejection of this reality: the reality of injustice and tyranny in the political sphere; drain and the reality of the bounties and loot the wealth of the nation; reality of the occupation who live more than an Islamic country.
As long as these reasons are present al-Qaida will continue to exist and will evolve and adapt with each new stage has no other bearing her sisters thought or close to it. Duty is to eliminate these causes and treatment so that we can deal with mistakes Let young people belonging to al Qaeda and other groups. The irony is that the West succeeded in containing groups were the most violent and the most expensive and extreme than many of the jihadi groups. IRA spent decades blowing and kills a civilian and military However in the end, Britain was able to contain and absorbed. ETA Basque and many others.
We are able to reach some kind of understanding with the young people who do not doubt the sincerity of the intentions of many of it even if we disagree with him in the schools where it went. But unfortunately this did not happen. Indeed, the systems tend to be rather than as such have resorted to demonizing Qaeda and accused al Qaeda and tarnish the image of the base and this backfired in many cases.
Al-Qaeda in fact do not need a certificate of good conduct from any one. Are convinced of what you are doing and think that this Jihad and others discontent and opposition to her and confronting her evidence on the health of its approach. Do not address things this way, but dealing with the causes and treatment of al-Qaeda presence. Treatment logical mental method does not support demonization and distortion, but method is based dialogue and reform and I think that a lot of young people at the base if they are found from scholars truthful knowledgeable influence of reassured him, it will accept a dialogue seriously depends on serious reform and leave what they are.
News Now: Are We talked how I received the news of the bombings atheist th of September
Abu Hafs: in Afghanistan were not the events of September 11th surprise us. Have we expected, but we expect that will be the blame. On this day, Tuesday, September 11th, was almost everyone Sstahb with radio and waits for news Cullen was what most people knew the nature of the events. Knows that there will be events. But do not know where or how. And when we heard the news through the radio and we saw the attacks, the fact that everyone was stunned because he was not going to be one of imagination works of this size and this image and this figure is what he was talking about Sheikh Osama bin Laden and threatening him America.
The size of the destruction and Hall events, something very influential big impact in the arena was not expecting one. Of course a lot of people cheered and grown-up may not be satisfied out of business, but of hatred for America welcomed and considered this a divine retaliation of this enemy and they rejoiced so great joy. Few people managed to restrain his emotions if he did not agree on the events, but he did not express any sympathy with America, too.
News Now: Where were you?
Abu Hafs: I was in Kandahar.

Abu Hafs: For me, I was expecting something like this and I’m not by nature emotionally. Adsna the resulting consequence of these events, which is one of the reasons that made me enemy to events before that.
News Now: What do you say Altajafirat that took place in Lebanon?
Abu Hafs: First, I am opposed to such operations that kill innocent Mdnyion in general. I expect and I think that are relevant to the intervention of Iran and Hezbollah in Syria. Syrians harmed a lot of politics and policy Agheiranih Hezbollah supporter of Bashar al-Assad. Does not rule out the possibility that someone inside Syria are behind the operations in retaliation for Iran and its policy in Syria and God.
News Now: We know that you are a witness material so far from your family. What did you feel when you saw your family on the screen now. What did you like most in that article and more what you do not like?
Abu Hafs: in fact, at the end of 2 News Now: News Now: 1, there was a program aired by a bad name now abandoned the base. And one of the brothers was watching this program and told me that he saw my father on screen channel now. So I went to the TV. I did not believe for joy for the father to see me speaking. This was the first Mrhotmin where he is still alive and kicking for nine years before that. Vgmrtina overjoyed and I looked great joy for this command, and then I saw my brother, then speak in the same program. This was a feast day for me. Even the intensity of my joy, I resolved all those in the compound and our feast too big to let everyone.
This is the most beautiful in that episode.The only thing which is nice. Because the program is the kind of bad publicity against the Mujahideen with their mistakes and against their families and against their parents. It is in fact the program lacks an objective and professional. This judgmental it. I hope that now may be exceeded this stage to a more mature stage and a more objective and professional in their coverage and programs.
News Now: Mamaz say to your father now after all the years in which I left him for joining the base?
Abu Hafs: of the greatest blessings of God Almighty to collect me between a blessing out of the restriction of freedom in Iran and Gqra my eyes to see the parent may God protect him. It was not out of prison any taste and any meaning if it did not accede to the grace and presence of a parent. It is God Almighty to its survival and acknowledged the same. This Namaaadz thanks.

How lived prisoners; lived how a combination between the prisoner and freewheeling. Talking about the return to Mauritania.Recall many details. Almost Started more than three-quarters of the book comes in two volumes was almost. I think it is the first book to come out from inside the base by one of those who have lived in their leaders.
Thank you for this interview.
A former close aide of Osama bin Laden has openly criticized the actions of armed groups in northern Mali Islamists.
During an interview with Al Jazeera and aired on 17 October 2013, Mahfouz Ould al-Walid (aka Abu Hafs al-Mauritani)
condemned the tactics used by the fighters of Ansar al-Din, the MUJAO and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
“I am opposed to the means used by these groups to establish an Islamic state in northern Mali,” said Ould al-Walid. “This project will do much more harm than good to the Muslims and the people of the sub-region.”
The former number three of al Qaeda said it “would be better to go in search of dialogue and find a joint solution,” adding that he was “ready to go see these brothers to negotiate” if should be asked.
Ould al-Walid was also suggested that the actions of militants in northern Mali can be justified by ignorance. “They can be due to a lack of knowledge of certain subjects, or because of their inability to become aware of certain facts because of insufficient experience,” he continued.
Islamist ideologue reiterated that he had left after bin Laden condemned “the attacks of September 11, that I have killed many innocent people.”
The former head of the Committee of Sharia al-Qaeda fled Afghanistan to visit Iran after the fall in 2001 of the Taliban regime.
Extradited last April to his native Mauritania, he was released from prison after three months of detention.
“Ould al-Walid was one of the first Mauritanians to join bin Laden in Afghanistan, serving as a consultant and expert on sharia,” said military analyst Ely Ould Maghlah, adding that the former head of al Qaeda had since renounced his ideas on violence.
According to Magharebia, Hamidou Ba, professor of history, says that “more and more extremists now return to ordinary life.”
“Today, the phenomenon of repentance has become a reality,” he notes. “In 2011 Dublin summit on extremist violence had met fifty repentant terrorists, including former militants of Hezbollah, al-Qaeda or the FARC in Colombia.”
According to Ba, “a social network like Against Violence Extremism (AVE) is a new way to fight against terrorism and extremist violence more broadly by linking different actors involved in the issue.”
“Victims, repented authors, experts, all are invited to share their experiences on the issue to promote a non-violent speech,” said he added.
Un ancien proche conseiller d’Oussama ben Laden a ouvertement critiqué les actions menées par les islamistes armés dans le nord du Mali.
Au cours d’une interview accordée à Al Jazeera et diffusée le ۱۷ octobre, Mahfouz Ould al-Walid (alias Abou Hafs al-Mauritani) a condamné les tactiques utilisées par les combattants d’Ansar al-Din, du MUJAO et d’al-Qaida au Maghreb islamique.
“Je m’oppose aux moyens mis en oeuvre par ces groupes pour fonder un Etat islamique dans le nord du Mali”, a expliqué Ould al-Walid. “Ce projet fera bien plus de mal que de bien aux Musulmans et aux populations de la sous-région”.
L’ancien numéro trois d’al-Qaida a déclaré qu’il “serait préférable de se mettre en quête du dialogue et de trouver une solution conjointe”, ajoutant qu’il était “prêt à aller voir ces frères pour négocier” si cela devait lui être demandé.
Ould al-Walid a également suggéré que les actions des militants du nord du Mali peuvent se justifier par l’ignorance. “Ils peuvent agir par suite d’un manque de connaissances de certains sujets, ou du fait de leur incapacité à prendre conscience de certains faits en raison d’une expérience insuffisante”, a-t-il poursuivi.
L’idéologue islamiste a répété qu’il avait quitté ben Laden après avoir condamné “les attaques du ۱۱ septembre, qui, selon moi, ont coûté la vie à de nombreux innocents”.
L’ancien chef du Comité de la sharia d’al-Qaida avait fui l’Afghanistan pour se rendre en Iran après la chute, en ۲۰۰۱, du régime taliban.
Extradé au mois d’avril dernier vers sa Mauritanie natale, il avait été libéré de prison après trois mois de détention.
“Ould al-Walid a été l’un des premiers Mauritaniens à rejoindre ben Laden en Afghanistan, servant de conseiller et d’expert de la sharia”, a expliqué l’analyste militaire Ely Ould Maghlah, ajoutant que cet ancien responsable d’al-Qaida avait depuis renoncé à ses idées sur la violence.
Selon Magharebia, Hamidou Ba, professeur d’histoire, affirme que “de plus en plus d’extrémistes reviennent dorénavant à la vie ordinaire”.
“Aujourd’hui, le phénomène du repentir est devenu une réalité”, note-t-il. “En ۲۰۱۱ à Dublin un sommet sur la violence extrémiste avait réuni une cinquantaine de terroristes repentis, parmi lesquels d’anciens activistes du Hezbollah, d’al-Qaida ou encore des FARC colombiens.”
Selon Ba, “un réseau social comme Against Violence Extremism (AVE) constitue un nouveau moyen de lutter contre le terrorisme et plus largement la violence extrémiste en mettant en relation différents acteurs concernés par la problématique.”
“Victimes, auteurs repentis, experts, tous sont invités à venir partager leurs expériences sur la question afin de promouvoir un discours non-violent”, a-t-il ajouté.
QUOTE of Abu Hafs about Hicham Bahloul (the Morocan actor):
“Hicham Bahloul is a player value, which is not only pious, but even more committed to good causes, such as the Palestinian case,” said Abu Hafs.
“This is an example of an artist who is at the service of his nation and his faith, his art” testified that Abu Hafs has not failed to raise his prayers for a speedy recovery to Hicham Bahloul.
“Hicham, I miss him at the the mosque Boulevard Bordeaux, where he is an avid 5 prayers.”
