‘500 Islamist fighters killed’

With news that Ethiopian jets have bombed Somali airports to prevent Islamists from receiving reinforcements and re-supplies, the global war on terror has opened a new hot front. Ethiopian forces are supporting the Somali government against Islamists supported by arab factions.

Addis Ababa – Somali pro-government forces have killed 500 Islamist troops, most of them Eritreans, in two days of heavy fighting, Somalia’s ambassador to Ethiopia said on Sunday.

There was no independent confirmation of the death toll. Aid agencies say dozens of people have been killed.

Ambassador Abdikarin Farah told reporters in Addis Ababa the Islamists have killed 10 government soldiers and wounded 13, adding that 280 enemy fighters were taken prisoner – some of them from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sudan.

Ummah News Links — Nuke’s website of the week

Welcome Back UNL. We’ve been missing you.

A regular part of my daily briefing on the news of the day went silent a few months ago, and I’m very happy to welcome them back to the front lines in the daily news and information confrontation in the struggle against islamic fascism, and their allies in the leftist blogosphere. I highly recommend that Ummah News Links become an entry to your favorites list, or, if you are a blogger, a listing on your blogroll.

from UNL :

Keith Ellison encourages crowd to push for justice: “Allahu akbar” was the reply of many in the crowd.

Speaking in Dearborn late Sunday night, the first Muslim elected to Congress told a cheering crowd of Muslims they should remain steadfast in their faith and push for justice.

“You can’t back down, you can’t chicken out, you can’t be afraid, you got to have faith in Allah, and you got to stand up and be a real Muslim,” Detroit native Keith Ellison said to loud applause.

“Allahu akbar” — God is great — was the reply of many in the crowd.

It is my pleasure to present this week’s “Nuke’s Website of the Week”:

“Dhimmi Bishops”, part 3


The Foreign Office responds: “We think it is intolerant extremism of people who want to cause pain and suffering and chaos in order to promulgate the societies in which they can impose the way of life they want on people who have clearly voted for democracy and democratic government.” LINK

RIP Godfather of Soul

James Brown, the dynamic, pompadoured “Godfather of Soul,” whose rasping vocals and revolutionary rhythms made him a founder of rap, funk and disco as well, died early Monday, Dec. 25, 2006, his agent said. He was 73. (AP)

Ethiopia Bombs Somali Airports.

Addis Ababa/Mogadishu- Ethiopia’s military on Monday struck the airport in the Somali capital Mogadishu, a day after it declared war on the country’s powerful Union of Islamic Courts (UIC). Fighter jets hit the airport, which was recently reopened by the UIC after 10 years of inactivity, wounding at least two people.

“Two Ethiopian warplanes were attacking the airport dropping bombs on the runway and the parking,” Abdirahim Adan Weheliye, the manager of Mogadishu International Airport, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.Reports said Ethiopian jets also hit Ballidogle, a former military airport some 110 kilometres from Mogadishu, which has been under UIC control since June.

Ethiopia declared war on Somalia’s Islamists late on Sunday, saying it was defending itself from the group which controls much of the Horn of Africa country.

Something of a no-brainer from Ethiopia’s viewpoint. God help those people out there. This is going to be harsh.

A Blessed Christmas Morning to You.
