Al-Qaeda wants more ‘martyrdom-seekers’

(The Australian) A REGIONAL wing of al-Qaeda has appealed for suicide bombers to join its growing ranks of “martyrdom-seekers” in a video screened on al Jazeera television today.In the video a leader of al-Qaeda Organisation in the Islamic Maghreb, a North African wing of al-Qaeda sometimes known as GSPC, boasted that “the list of martyrdom-seekers has become long and is growing every day”. “This is a crusader war on Islam and a battle of destiny between the infidels and believers so do not miss out,” he said. “Come to a paradise that is as wide as earth and the skies.” The tape showed footage of a militant turning alarm clocks designed to alert Muslims to prayer times into detonator timers and images al Jazeera said were militants preparing the bombs used in attacks that killed 30 people in Algeria on Aprill 11 “Allah is great,” chanted militants off-camera as they filmed an explosion at a building from a distant location. Islam promises heaven to those who die while implementing God’s orders, but many top Muslim clerics have said suicide operations like those carried out by al-Qaeda violate Islam. Al-Qaeda leaders accuse these clerics of being puppets for the governments of Muslim countries. Al-Qaeda Organisation in the Islamic Maghreb, previously known as the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, or GSPC, also claimed responsibility for an attack in March which killed seven policemen and four gas pipeline workers. Violence broke out in Algeria in 1992 after the authorities, fearing a revolution, scrapped a parliamentary election that the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) was expected to win. Up to 200,000 people were killed in the ensuing bloodshed.
