We are constantly admonished that jihad terror activity is the result of poverty and alienation, as well as a lack of education. Poor Muslims without any opportunities in this world, harassed and discriminated against by the kuffar, and lacking knowledge of the true Religion of Peace, turn to terror out of desperation and as a means to give themselves some occupation and meaning in life. Reality, however, is quite different. Again and again we have seen educated, affluent Muslims engaging in jihad. It is not poverty, lack of opportunity or hardship that creates jihad killers — the common denominator is Islam. It’s the same pattern over and over again. Siful Sujan is further proof of all I have said and refutation of the popular leftist myth that the elites traffic in — that jihadis are poverty-stricken, disaffected, illiterate youths.
It’s the same pattern over and over again. Muslim doctors in Michigan, US naval officers, popular happy Muslim teens in Mississippi, Muslim rappers in Germany, Muslim doctors in Glasgow and Australia, Muslim chemical engineering students in Canada, the UK’s top students at their most elite schools, Muslim herdsmen in Nigeria, Muslim British surgeons, Muslim heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America, Muslim doctors in Australia, Canadian Idol contestants, and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and and the East and all points in between.
This is not rocket science. This is reality.
“Terror cell founded in Wales ‘funded Islamic extremists,'” by Wyre Davies, BBC, July 16, 2018 (thanks to RF):
A terrorism network founded in Wales is suspected of a number of attacks in Bangladesh, the BBC can reveal.
The cell was started by respected south Wales businessman Siful Sujan, who had companies based in Cardiff.
The American military said he was a key figure in the so-called Islamic State, before he was killed by a US drone strike in Syria in 2015.
It is now claimed the work of his network continued, led by his brother Ataul Haque, who had lived in Wales.
Haque moved from Wales to Spain, and he was arrested in the town of Merida in September 2017.
The FBI says Sujan’s Welsh company, Ibacstel Electronics, was sending money to the USA to fund plans for a bomb attack there; and it was also buying military-grade equipment which was being sent to Islamic State fighters.
The officer investigating Haque agreed to be interviewed by the BBC on condition of anonymity due to the nature of his work.
“On the face of it Ataul’s business was legal, but the destination of these resources – or at least part of them – were destined to finance ISIS, technologically and financially,” said the officer.
“We estimate that in December of 2015 Ataul Haque sent and co-ordinated a total of $50,000 (£37,691) to Bangladesh. The destination of that money, according to our Bangladeshi colleagues, was specifically “operational”, to carry out attacks.”
Bangladeshi journalist Tasneem Khalil pinpointed Siful Sujan as the man who helped set-up ISIS there.
He said the former Glamorgan University student who lived in Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taff, had recruited up to 50 jihadi fighters in Bangladesh, and helped fund terror attacks.
“Siful Sujan was the architect, or one of the key architects, of the global money moving operation of ISIS. We are actually talking about big sums of money,” said Mr Khalil, who is now living in exile in Sweden.
“There were a number of operations in the second half of 2015 which Bangladeshi intelligence agencies believe were funded by Sujan’s money.”…
