Paris France Terrorist & Nigerian Underwear Bomber Trained By Al Qaeda & Lived In Same House In Yemen

Jan 11, 2015 – Paris France Terrorist & Nigerian Underwear Bomber Umar Farouk Lived In Same House In Yemen & Trained By Al Qaeda

Said Kouachi, one of France’s Charlie Hebdo terrorists had links to Umar Mutallab, the Nigerian ‘underwear bomber’ who tried to blow up a commercial US flight on Christmas Day in 2009, it has been claimed.

The revelation comes as French investigators try to establish the connections the suspects had with terror networks and one another.

Two brothers who killed 12 in an attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine on Wednesday were shot dead Friday as they fled a warehouse north of Paris, firing at police.

Shortly afterwards in eastern Paris, anti-terrorist forces stormed a kosher supermarket where hostages were being held by a gunman with reported links to the brothers. The gunman and four hostages died.

A Yemeni journalist and researcher, Mohammed al-Kibsi, told CNN he had met and spoken with one of the brothers – Said Kouachi – in Yemen in 2011 and 2012.

He said Kouachi – who was studying Arabic grammar – shared a small apartment with the ‘underwear bomber’ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab for one to two weeks in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, was sentenced to life in prison in February 2012 for trying to bomb a US passenger plane flying from Amsterdam to Detroit as a would-be suicide mission for al-Qaeda.

He was badly burned when a bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully in the plane carrying nearly 300 people.

During his trial, Abdulmutallab said the bomb in his underwear was a ‘blessed weapon’ to avenge poorly treated Muslims around the world.

Mr al-Kibsi told CNN Abdulmutallab and Kouachi also prayed together at the Al-Tabari School while they were staying together. As yet, his claims have not been given official confirmation.

It came as Al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch, known as AQAP, released a statement saying they directed the attack to make good on previous threats.

One of the brothers – Cherif Kouachi – named the terror group’s Yemen branch as his commanders.

A statement released in English said: ‘The leadership of #AQAP directed the operation, and they have chosen their target carefully as a revenge for the honor of Prophet (pbuh) [peace be upon him].

‘The target was in France in particular because of its obvious role in the war on Islam and oppressed nations.

‘The operation was the result of the threat of Sheikh Usama (RA). He warned the West about the consequences of the persistence in the blasphemy against Muslims’ sanctities.

‘Sheikh Usama (RA) said in his message to the West: If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions.

‘The Organization delayed to claim responsibility due to the executors’ security reasons.’

In a chilling telephone conversation with a journalist – later played out on French news network BFM – Kouachi said he knew he was talking to a reporter before saying: ‘I am a defender of the prophet.

‘I was sent by Al Qaeda of Yemen. I’m financed by Imam anwar al Awlaqi – Anwar is a predicateur (preacher). He has lived in the Yemen. He is one of the thinking heads of Al Qaeda.’

    Everyone knows what’s good and bad. The ability to say no to what obviously is bad is what matters. Religion left to me alone is personal. How you worship your God is your problem. No body is born with religion written in his brain or heart. We all acquired it after we were born and like all other acquirements we all will leave it here on earth and move on. To where? Well we don’t know how we came to this world and only acknowledged our parents as we grew up. That’s to say any body could have claimed you and but for the technology now you won’t be able to know except you are told. Such people may be of any religious denominations and that what you will embrace as your religion till you grew up and decide.

    Ola, tnx,@least 4 being frank! I mistook u 4 a moslem until lately. U said u’r an agnostic. Nw I’m 3000% certain dat u need help, or helps. Agnostics r d most uncertain ppl on earth: they can neither answer yes nor no in any issue. They’r jst floating. Atheists r evn beta cos @least they can say somthn & defend it. Bt 4u, u dnt knw weda God exists or nt. U cnt defend any st8ment u make. Wat can u den tel a child seeking d light of truth? Dat u dnt knw wat is truth?
    My man, we need 2 straighten out dis issue cos it has an eternal consequence.

      LOL.. I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU WILL MISTOOK ME FOR A MOSLEM…LAUGHABLE!!!
      NOW, UNCERTAIN IS WHAT I’M NOT..I’M VERY CERTAIN IN MANY THINGS.. QUICK POINT OF CORRECTION, NOBODY AS OF TODAY CAN DEFEND THE EXISTENCE OF GOD. NOBODY!! YOU CAN THINK HE EXIST, YOU CAN CLAIM YOU SPOKE TO HIM, YOU CAN EVEN CLAIMS YOU HAVE SEEN HIM..BUT ALL THAT CAN NOT BE PROVEN YET… NOBODY KNOWS FOR SURE. THAT’S MY STANCE.!
      NOW, HOW DO I GET THERE? I WAS BORN INTO A VERY RELIGIOUS HOME, GOES TO CHURCH 4 TO 5 TIMES A WEEK, ALTAR BOY, CHOIR MEMBER, KNOWS THE BIBLE VERY WELL..DONE IT ALL, EVEN CONSIDERED TO BECOME A PRIEST/PREACHER ETC…
      THEN IN MY TEEN, I MET A LOVELY GIRL WHO CAME FROM A VERY STRICT MUSLIM BACK GROUND. HER PARENTS WERE SO STRICT THAT I WASN’T ALLOWED TO VISIT THEIR HOME..LONG STORY SHORT…DUE TO THE LOVE I HAD FOR HER, I CONVERTED TO ISLAM..I STARTED GOING TO MOSQUE, BOUGHT A KORAN AND STATED STUDYING IT…I WAS THEN ACCEPTED BY THE PARENTS AS I BECAME VERY FAMILIAR WITH ISLAM JUST THE WAY I WAS WITH CHRISTIANITY… SO METU NYETU, I’M NOT UNCERTAIN OR A NOVICE AT ALL, I’M VERY WELL INFORMED. I EVEN DABBLED INTO JUDAISM AND BUDDHISM WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE….
      YOU SEE, AS A FREE THINKER, RELIGION IS JUST AN IDEAL, I’M PRETTY SURE IT WAS INITIALLY CREATED FOR A GOOD CAUSE, BUT IT HAS BEEN HIJACK ALONG THE LINE JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE AND BECAME A DESTRUCTIVE AND A MANIPULATIVE TOOL AGAINST THE POOR AND THE UNWISE.
      THE EVIDENCE ARE EVERYWHERE…LOL. IT’S UP TO THE INDIVIDUALS TO SEEK THE TRUTH FOR THEMSELVES.
      JUST TO LET YOU KNOW, IF I WAS BORN IN PAKISTAN I’M MORE LIKELY TO BE A MUSLIM, IN ITALY A CATHOLIC, IN INDIA A HINDU, IN CHINA MAYBE A BUDDHIST ETC. YOU GOT THE POINT. RELIGION IS HOW EVERYONE SEES IT…IT HAS BROUGHT MORE CHAOS IN THIS WORLD THAT ANYTHING ELSE, MOSTLY FROM CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM…CATHOLICS USED TO KILL SCIENTIST AND ANYONE THAT BELIEVES SOMETHING DIFFERENT…
      I AM AN AGNOSTIC BECAUSE WHEN IT COME THE ISSUE OF GOD. NOBODY OR RELIGION KNOW FOR SURE..NOBODY!!..ATHEIST DOESN’T KNOW FOR SURE, RELIGIOUS PEOPLE DOESN’T KNOW FOR SURE. .EVEN IN THE HOLY BOOKS WHICH I’M VERY FAMILIAR WITH, ARE VERY CONTRADICTORY…NOTHING WAS CLEAR!! I’M MUCH MORE AT PEACE WITH MYSELF ONCE I LET GO OF RELIGION, I JUST TREAT PEOPLE WELL, I’M KIND TO MY NEIGHBORS , I HELPED THE NEEDY…I’M NOT WORRY ABOUT SOME HEAVEN OR HELL SOMEWHERE THAT NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE…IF JUST BEING A GOOD PERSON IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR SOME GOD.. ALL WELL!!
      @METU, MY FAMILY ARE STILL VERY RELIGIOUS AND WE HAVE AN EXCELLENT RELATIONSHIP DESPITE OUR DIFFERENCES IN BELIEFS. MY KIDS ATTENDS CHURCH REGULARLY, I NEVER STAND IN THEIR WAY, I JUST ENCOURAGE THEM TO BE WISE, QUESTION EVERYTHING, AND TO BE VERY INQUISITIVE…
      I ALSO TOLD THEM LOOK BEYOND JUST HAVING FAITH AND BELIEVE ONLY…AFTER ALL THE HOLY BOOKS ENCOURAGE US TO BE WISE AND TO BE OF A GOOD COURAGE..LOL I TOLD MY KIDS TO READ THE BIBLE FOR THEMSELVES AND TO ASK QUESTIONS…BASICALLY FOR THEM TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES…..I’M SURE THE PARIS BOYS WASN’T THINKING FOR THEMSELVES, THE MUST HAVE BELIEVED SOME IMMAN ABOUT SOME 72 VIRGINS IN SOME PARADISE..LOL
      PEACE!
      NOTE; BEEN AN AGNOSTIC DIDN’T CHANGE ME AS PERSON, IT ACTUALLY MADE ME A BETTER PERSON….

    Wen I was readn ur narration, I wz almost afraid dat u wud say dat u quit Christianity cos a very bad thing hapnd 2u & made question d truth in d bible. Well, as we hav it, u left in d pursuit of carnal love. I tel u, u’v nt xperienced anythn yet. Nothn tested ur faith bt u jst quit. I cn wel tel u dat u were a mere churchgoer in ur Christian days. U knew d bible quite alright, as u said. Bt wat u had wz head knwledge, nt heart knwledge. Head knwledg cn help u pass a theological exam set by man, bt u can only scale thru d exam set by God wit heart knwledg. Head knwlegd is knowing d letter in d Scripture. Heart knwlegd is knwing d Spirit. U only knew d letter. Dis only helps u in making arguements bt cn neva edify d hearer. And d bible says dat d letter killeth, bt d Spirit giveth life.

    I will hav 2 ask u, do u rmemba d biblical account of d catastrophe
    brought upon the Egyptian army
    which pursued the Israelites, recorded in d Book of Exodus? Pharoah & his army drownd with their chariots & horses in d Red Sea.

    Now, in 1987–if I’m correct–a group of divers stumbled upon d chariot remains mentiond in d bible. They were all coverd in coral. Diz were subsequently carbon-dated to a particular dynasty in Egypt & thus corroborates d biblical account. 2day, there r several oda fossil evidences of bible events. Hence d bible is true. It says God exists,&dat is true. Granted dat many ppl hav used d bible & religion 2 achiev their selfish ends. Bt dat iznt enof 2 make u an agnostic. D existence of fakes prove dat there is d original. There r many quack doctors, engineers 2day. Yet u’v nt becom a technological agnostic. U stil take drugs wen u fall sick. U stil use ur computers.

    THAN 20 YEARS TO ARRIVED AT MY DECISION, I COULD WRITE A BOOK ABOUT IT, WHATEVER YOU MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN FROM MY LAST TEXT WAS JUST A TIP OF AN ICEBERG. SO THAT CARNAL LOVE WAS JUST A PURE NONSENSE ON YOUR PART. I ACTUALLY WENT BACK TO CHRISTIANITY AFTER MY ISLAM CONVERSION.
    2 AS YOU STATED, I WAS NEVER JUST A MERE CHURCH GOER, TRUST ME A DABBLE IN THE SPIRIT, SPEAK IN TONGUE, REVEALED VISION, TALKS TO GOD…TRUST ME WHEN YOU CLAIM TO HAVE FAITH OR WHATEVER YOU WILL BE AMAZED WHAT YOUR BRAVO WILL LET YOU TO BELIEVE….TRUST ME I KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT….I AM EXTREMELY INTELLECTUAL, I HAD MY FIRST DEGREE AT AGE 20, SECOND BY 25, SERVED 5 YEARS IN THE MILITARY, FLUENT IN 4 LANGUAGES, TRAVELED TO MORE THAN 48 COUNTRIES, BITE OF MY DEGREE ARE IN THE SCIENCE FIELD, IN CURRENTLY IN LAW SCHOOL, SEE, I CRAVE AND SEEK KNOWLEDGE WHERE EVER IT MAY BE, ESPECIALLY WHEN SOMEONE IS PAYING FOR IT….SO I’M NO DUMMY BY ANY STRETCH.
    3. I GUESS YOUR PROOF OF GOD’S EXISTENCE WAS BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS SO…THAT MY FRIEND, IS A COP – OUT AND LAUGHABLE. ..I DON’T COMPLETELY DISCREDIT THE BIBLE, HOWEVER, THERE WERE A LOT OF INACCURACY AND CONTRADICTORY IN…THE BIBLE SUGGESTED THE EARTH WAS FLAT. NOT TRUE. ACCORD ING TO THE BIBLE, THE WORLD IS 6 TO 7 THOUSAND OLD. NOT TRUE. I CHOSE NOT TO TAKE THE BIBLE AS A LITERARY WORD OF A PERFECT GOD..YOU CAN IF YOU WANT…

    On technology and medicine…they are incomparable to religion or faith. ..I have more faith in both because they work 99.9% of time, unlike prayer or believe….my medicine always works,all my electronics always turned on but I know many people that has been praying for a child from God for 10 to 20 YEARS. Guess what? No answer, I bet you just don’t really on prayer when you are sick? It’s technology that takes you from one part of the world to another…like I said, I have nothing against your religion. ..I just don’t need it…good luck!

    U’ll neva cease2amaze me. Calling my writing style silly, is dat an attempt 2 jolt me off my cool? It failed!

    If prayer dznt work 4u, it suggests where ur faith lies. In dis world, we all hav eyes & we choose wat we see. U hav chosen 2c where prayer dznt work. Bt I am a living witnes dat it works efficaciously.

    U reeled out d rungs u hav climbed in ur repining quest 4 knowledg. Dat’s commendable! St Paul was also like dat, & far more. In spite of all d knowlegd he had acquired, he counted dem but loss dat he might knw Christ &d power of his resurrection. D gospel of Christ is foolishnes 2 those who are perishing. U neva can approach God relying on ur wisdom.

    U mention som names of atheist/agnostics who shook d world. Maybe dat’s why u’v alligned ur thot wit theirs. Permit me 2 let u knw dat people like Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, Nicholas Copernicus, Johannes Kepler & even Galileo Galilei, known as d father of modern Physics & Observational Astronomy, were Christians.

    Moreover, according to 100 Years of Nobel Prizes, a review of Nobel prizes
    awarded between 1901 and 2000, 65.4% of Nobel
    Prizes Laureates have identified Christianity as their religious preference. By and large, Christians have won a total of 78.3% of all the Nobel Prizes in Peace, 72.5% in
    Chemistry, 65.3% in Physics, 62% in Medicine, 54% in Economics, & 49.5% of all Literature awards.

    So now tell me, who shakes d world beta?

    U’r making me veer frm d core of dis discussion, Ola. We aint here 2 debate on who has benefited d world dan d oda. D question is about ur uncertainties as an agnostic individual.

    Now, hear wat Blaise Pascal said regarding dis:
    “Belief is a wise wager. Granted dat faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves falls? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation.”

    Ola, I beliv u’v heard dat name, Pascal b4 now. He was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and
    Christian philosopher. He was one of d first 2 inventors of d calculator. 2day evrbdy uses d calculator like it’s a common machine.

    Wat he essencially said in dat quotation is dat if u beliv there is God & liv ur life accordnly, den in d end, if it turns out dat God actually exists, u wouldnt regret. On d oda hand, if it becoms dat God doznt exist, u lose nothn.
    Hav u eva imagined wat would be ur fate if heaven and hell prove real@last? Or do u shunt dat question aside 2 enjoy d respite of euphemeral trivialities?

    Blaise Pascal’s statement was borne out of a gamblers instincts, yes. But it could be helpful here, albeit it made an errornous assumption. U dnt gamble wit God. If u would com 2 Him, u must, first of all, beliv dat He exists, not gamble dat he exists.

    Think about dis, Ola! Wat is @stake is not d many certificates u hav gannered; it’s ur life.

  13. ola

  14. Metu Nyetu

    January 15, 2015 at 7:45 AM

    WOW! AM I SURPRISED? I DOUBT! DIS IS EXACTLY HOW YOUR ILKS BEHAVE: WEN U HIT DEM HARD WITH D TRUTH, THEY QUICKLY GRASP AT ONE FLIMSY EXCUSE AND QUIT. EVEN BENCH UNDERSTANDS MY ABBREVIATIONS. SO HOW COULD A VASTLY EXPOSED POLYGLOT LIKE U FAIL HERE? YOUR CLAIM IS SIMPLY A PLOY 2 BOW OUT WITH A PSEUDO SENSE OF HONOUR.

    LET ME LEAVE U WITH ONE WORD, THOUGH: NO MATTER HOW WISE & KNOWLEDGIBLE U THINK U ARE, MULTIPLY IT BY ALBERT EINSTEIN’S WISDOM 100TIMES AND IT WOULD STILL BE FOOLISHNESS BEFORE GOD.
