Saudi Arabia To Lebanon To Australia To Jihad

Every time you squeeze the trigger on a gas pump nozzle and start filling your tank, you're fueling jihad -- as comes home in this story about jihad-recruiting by Wahhabis in Australia. It's a great example of why we are fighting a global war on terror.

Some of your gas money ends up in the coffers of the Saudi regime. They in turn use part of the money to fund the global expansion of their extreme Wahhabi sect throughout the world -- form the prisons of the U.S. to the streets of Lebanon. Then, new Wahhabis go looking for recruits throughout the global Islam community.

This phenomenon is outlined in this story from Australia News Nine:
Muslim extremists are recruiting young Somali refugees in Melbourne to join Islamic jihad, according to a Somali community leader.

The Age reports that Herse Hilole, a Sydney community leader and Islamic scholar, fears the young refugees could be used in terrorism attacks in Australia.

In a speech to be delivered tonight in Melbourne at a Somali community meeting, Hilole will warn that some Somalis are being influenced by radical Lebanese from a hardline Wahhabi group. ...

In Hilole's speech, he claims that extremists in Somalia are using terrorist tactics similar to those used in Iraq, and they have found many supporters in Australia.

"We know that some people left Australia to join the jihad of the Islamic Courts and have even been killed. We know there are supporters in Australia who want to recruit young Somalis to go back or support financially the Islamic Courts," he says. "The community must be made aware of this and we must put a stop to it."
Other Muslim leaders in Melbourne deny Hilole's allegations ... but at least as far as this story reports, there's no evidence behind their position. How could they?

Saudi Arabia's intent to spread Wahhabism globally is well documented.

Wahhabism's commitment to jihad is well documented.

And, according to Hilole, the participation of Somali Aussies in jihad is well documented.

Evidence to the contrary? Show me some.
