Summary
Article summary: 

The Somalian al-Salām party has joined forces with al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn to create a new jihād network.

The Somalian government is disregarding the threats triggered by the new network.

The goal of the union is to create an Islamic caliphate and continue a jihād against Christian crusaders, in addition to supporting the weak Muslims on earth.

The first results of the union were seen in the capture of the town of Hrādīrī, one of the most important Somalian pirate strongholds. Al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn further threatened to attack Uganda and Burundi.

Meanwhile, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania are on alert after an Al-Shabāb-attributed bombing on December 21 at a bus station in Nairobi.

Summary
Article summary: 

“The good Muslim and the evil Muslim” is the title of eminent Ugandan thinker Mahmoud Mamdani’s most recent book written in 2004. It’s predictable that the American administration would slot Muslims into categories of good and evil. Those who would help the administration fight terrorism in Iraq and would help bring about stability would be considered the good Muslims and others who would refuse to cooperate with American occupation forces in Iraq would be considered evil Muslims.
