Sweden Bomber Promised Jihad In ‘Will’

From Sweden’s The Local:

Sweden bomber fulfilled al-Qaeda threat: will

Published: 13 Dec 10

The perpetrator suspected of carrying out Saturday’s bomb attacks in Stockholm claimed in a purported will that he was fulfilling a threat by al-Qaeda in Iraq to attack Sweden, according to a group that tracks the online activity of terrorist organisations on Monday.

"[The] Islamic State [of Iraq] has fulfilled what it promised you," Taymour Abdel Wahab allegedly wrote in the will posted by a jihadist on the Shumukh al-Islam website, according to the SITE (Search for International Terrorist Entities) Intelligence Group, a US-based for-profit entity.

The Swedish capital was hit by twin explosions on Saturday — a suspected suicide attack and separate blast — targeting Christmas shoppers in a busy pedestrian area of the city. A man investigators suspect may have been the bomber was killed, while the other explosion nearby injured two people.

Shumukh al-Islam named Abdel Wahab as the man responsible for the blasts, although Sweden’s intelligence agency Säpo has refused to comment on the claim.

The late chief of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, had called in an audio message in September 2007 for reprisals in Sweden for the cartoons of Islam’s prophet Mohammed by Swedish artist Lars Vilks.

Baghdadi also offered cash for killing the cartoonist and named Swedish companies such as Ericsson, Ikea and Volvo as potential targets to harm Sweden’s economy.

British media reported on Monday that Wahab had studied at the University of Bedfordshire in Luton, around 50 kilometres northwest of London, and had been living in the town in recent years. His wife and children were reportedly still living in Luton, The Daily Mail and The Daily Telegraph reported.

And her is an earlier report, also from The Local:

Islamist site identifies Stockholm bomber

An Islamist website on Sunday identified the bomber behind Saturday’s attacks in the Swedish capital Stockholm as Taymour Abdel Wahab and published a photograph it said was him.

Published: 12 Dec 10

"It is our brother, mujahid Taymour Abdel Wahab, who carried out the martyrdom operation in Stockholm," said the website Shumukh al-Islam, which published a photograph of a man in dark glasses and Western clothes.

The man also has a light beard and was pictured standing with his hands in his pockets with a green valley in the background.

Twin blasts rocked a shopping street in central Stockholm on Saturday, killing a man suspected of being the bomber, and wounding two others.

The website did not give any other details about the alleged bomber, such as his age or possible affiliation with any extremist group. It also did not say where the photograph was taken.

The attacks were labeled a "terrorist crime" on Sunday by Sweden’s chief prosecutor.

Asked about the Al-Qaeda-linked website’s claim to identify the attacker, Säpo spokeswoman Carolina Ekeus said: "We don’t make any comment about the identity of the person that was found dead."

The same photo published on the website was published in Swedish newspaper Expressen on Sunday with the face blurred.

Two people were also injured in the blasts. If it is confirmed as a suicide attack, it would be the first in Sweden.

Naturally, most of the mainstream media reports about this attack have downplayed Mr. Wahab’s religious affiliation, if they mentioned it at all. Indeed, many news outlets have courageously restrained from even mentioning his name.

After all, they don’t want to incite an anti-Muslim backlash.

    Wahab has become a good Jihadi. If only we could convince a few million more, what a wonderful world it would be.

    …, after a fellow forum member suggested that Semtex was difficult to detect by modern detectors. The discussion began on the Shumukh al-Islam forum on Oct. 16, 2010, and primarily consisted of Arabic-speaking jihadists attempting to craft an Arabic translation of an English-language manual for Semtex.

    …The discussion on the Shumukh al-Islam forum
    began on Oct. 18, 2010, when a jihadist asked forum users to think of the “easiest ways” to carry out operations similar to 9/11, and offered his own idea of hijacking a plane without using weapons…

    Jihadists discussed explosive belts and Cordtex, a detonating cord, in posts on the Shumukh al-Islam forum.
    The discussion began on Sept. 30, 2010, when a jihadist posted pictures…

    Two sets of instructions, one a diagram and the other a video, to use mechanisms from inside a remote control toy vehicle for remote detonations were distributed together on jihadist forums on July 25, 2009.

    A jihadist prepared and distributed a manual for preparing an explosive mixture of sodium chlorate from household items. The manual, entitled, “Ingenuity in Manufacturing Homemade Explosives,” was posted on the Shumukh al-Islam forum
    on Oct. 15, 2010. He explained that chlorate explosives were among the most powerful civilian explosives, and gave two sets of step-by-step instructions accompanied with pictures to produce sodium chlorate using a process involving hydroxide.

    A jihadist suggested using rat poison to contaminate water supplies and therefore turn the poison into a weapon of mass destruction. He wrote in a post on the Shumukh al-Islam forum
    on Oct. 23, 2010, that fighters in enemy countries should put holes in pipelines of filtered water and put poison inside, or add what called “various jihadi colours and tastes.” Such action, he said, would lead to many deaths and great economic loss, and would force enemy states to heed the demands of al-Qaeda.


    And where does Shumukh al-Islam.

    Strange, I googled a muslim man I saw on FOX who also spoke along with the Sharia Law muslim who is suing OK for ban as it would effect his “testimony & will, and even marriage ceremonies.

    The bearded man was Imad S. Enchassi. Found a video with him bragging the mosque & huge compound (to include UNDERGROUND shelter) was the largest in the Midwest. He said the OK Heartland. Didn’t know OK was Midwest.

    Anyways, then I found Islam pedia (there is no space between the creepy 2 words) here Enchassi is one of the authorized scholars to answer questions on Islam. (he warns Fire & Hell and convert to Islam now before it’s too late (mild in comparison to other scholars). He is not honest. And so I clicked on questions with answers given by different scholars (“jurists”, “Islam lawmakers”, Iman’s etc. and found they contradicted themselves. As in the violence, beatings, murdering sinner, was the majority rule.

    One scholar person said the problem is that you should never believe any quran written in English. The only true version is the ARABIC quran. And he gave the violent scriptures of Sharia law.

    And then another scholar wrote answers in English, that sucide bombings were called by allah, and all this stuff about AchThen I found two scholars who were registered to post, and one wrote the scripture and then had Arabic underneath. Of course it was the most violent scriptures on how they should blow themselves up and be martyrs. This scholar made a point of putting Arabic writing of the Quran underneath.

    The latter violent jihadist two belonged to the United Arab Emirate in which I believe is a member of the UN. And so we here about this area in the Gulf, Yemen, Somali, etc. I wrote their names down, but today can’t read them. ; (. My point is I think intelligence should be watching the Islam pedia. There is no space between, but it’s creepy.
