Given that Leah Farrall is in Australia, I’m alarmed that I’m awake when she is posting, but she’s got a very interesting piece up about the recent toner cartridge bomb plot and what it says about the relationship between Al Qaida and Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. Check it out.
Also, there’s a nifty rant against the “Shaykhs of the Religious Satellite (Channels) and Their War Against the Advocates of Islamic Forums” on the Ansar al-Jihad English language forum. This article is just the latest piece to show how the jihadists are, from their point of view, very much isolated within the Islamic world.
Meanwhile, there’s a delightful new piece of “jihadist strategic studies” just out that I will be blogging about tomorrow, inshallah. And when I say “tomorrow,” I mean later today. Sigh.
