NewsRescue- The radical Islamist group allegedly responsible for a spate of bombings across the Northern region and capital of Nigeria, Boko Haram(Western civilization is bad) has finally begun to reveal its long sought roots.
A recent report in the Nigerian THEWILL magazine detailed links to Mauritanian ex premiere Maaouya Ould Taya, the dictator who seized power in a coup in 1984 and led Mauritania as president and Prime Minister till he was ousted in 2005 and fled through Banjul Gambia to Doha, Qatar where he now resides under impunity.
The former soldier, who was a strong ally of the United States, France and Israel during his reign, has lived in Doha, Qatar with his family since August 22, 2005, after he was offered asylum in the Arab state, the report gathered.
The Algerian government Sunday announced that it has credible intelligence that Boko Haram has linked up with al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) which has its North African headquarters in Algeria. Deputy Foreign Minister, Abdelkader Messahel told journalists that intelligence report show both groups have been coordinating. We have no doubts that coordination exists between Boko Haram and al Qaeda, Messahel said.
“The former President according to our source has been coordinating with senior elements of an Arab country in the Middle East and some sympathetic Nigerian interests to destabilize Nigeria in order to enthrone Islam in the entire north.”
Is Maaouya Ould Taya the African point man designated by the powers that be, in charge of coordinating, training and developing the AQIM branch in Nigeria?

NATO supported AQIM overthrow of Libya
In the recent overthrow of Libya, by NATO led efforts, with Qatar playing a major role, AQIM took over Libya, and it has been observed that Alqaeda flags have been waved at major rallies in post Gaddafi Libya, as well as on mast above the Libya court house.
The United States Chief of the counter-terrorism department, John Brennan acknowledged the joint efforts with AQIM, LIFG [Al Qaeda’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group offshoot] and described their cooperation with AQIM to over throw their greater enemy, Gaddafi. This type of cooperation with Alqaeda terrorists by the United States is not new, and the happening in Libya eerily follows the pattern of the US covert war against Russia, during the 1979 Russian invasion of Afghanistan when the CIA first empowered Osama Bin Laden and created the Alqaeda to defeat their greater enemy, Russia.
Some members of the LIFG [Al Qaeda’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group offshoot] in the past had connections with al Qaeda in Sudan, Afghanistan or Pakistan. Others dropped their relationship with al Qaeda entirely. It seems from their statements and support for establishing a democracy in Libya that this faction of LIFG does not support al Qaeda. We’ll definitely be watching to see whether this is for real or just for show. – John Brennan, Wednesday, August 31st, 2011
Qatar role in training AQIM terrorists to topple Libyan government
During the Libyan invasion by NATO, Qatar played a major role among other Arab Nations, providing most weapons directly to the AQIM Libya revolutionists and also providing direct training of these terrorists.
According to a former US intelligence contractor: the main source of support for the Libyan rebels came from Q-SOC, the Qatari special forces. Q-SOC trained the rebels. The Qataris were the first foreign military on the ground providing military training. Qatar provided air support. The Qatari military are trained by British and French forces.
Qatar’s Al-Jazeera TV played its part in helping the CIA and its friends topple the regimes of Ben Ali in Tunisia and Mubarak in Egypt. It is also known that Al-Jazeera has recruited a number of former BBC journalists; BBC journalists are believed to have connections to MI6 and its friends. The new emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, had toppled his father with the help of London and Washington.
Sheikh Hamad authorized the Israeli Ministry of Commerce to open an office in Doha. Sheikh Hamad brought in a firm called JTrack to help Al-Jazeera.
“From Morocco to Singapore, JTrack has trained most of the political leaders backed by the United States and Israel, often mere heredity puppets…” source
Motive for support of AQIM and Boko Haram terror in Nigeria
Why would Doha, Qatar and ultimately the western powers wish for a powerful radical terrorist group in Nigeria? As happened in Libya, is this a means of ultimately overthrowing Nigeria’s government to gain control of Nigeria’s abundant resources?
Nigeria is the 14th top oil producer in the world with an estimated over 36 Billion barrels of oil reserve. The Nation among other African Nations rejected an American military presence under the AFRICOM program on its soil. The United States it is known desperately seeks a military presence in Africa to counter China’s increasing influence in the natural resource abundant continent. With the global recession, collapse of Europe and increasing trouble and sacking of European leaders, the western powers are beginning to show more and more desperation to acquire and secure greater resource.
Arab meddling Precedent
The 1985 coup, and overthrow of some of the best leaders in Nigeria’s history, the Buhari-Idiagbon regime, was an instance of CIA-Arab cooperation to undermine Nigeria. In that instance, the Buhari-Idiagbon regime had refused IMF loans and SAP regulations. The king of Saudi Arabia, King Fahd was then instructed to invite both leaders to the pilgrimage, this was to enable the brutal Babangida regime with ties to the CIA take over in the 1985 coup, and of course they immediately accepted World Bank, IMF offers and SAP regulations followed.

Whatever the reasons for the foreign meddling and support of terror in Nigeria, the danger is ever so grave. With the invasion and destruction of Libya, thousands of deadly ammunition’s are all over North and West Africa in the hands of terrorists. These weapons include anti-aircraft missiles. The NATO mission in Libya was one of the worst in recent times, and possibly in history, with no control of ammunition and with the battle organized, fought and won by known terrorists (AQIM).
Even commercial airlines are no longer safe flying in the air-spaces over Africa, as these fall prey to targeting from anti air missiles in the hands of the new Libyan leadership (AQIM) friends and comrades all over the region.
Nigeria needs to be on highest security alert with securing of its Northern borders against penetration of arms and fighters from Libya and surroundings. Nigeria needs also reevaluate its ties with Qatar and the new Libya in consideration of the direct threat they constitute to peace and sovereignty of the Nation.
