The desert strongholds of the entrenched  extremist Wahhabi rebels who have terrorized and controlled the Northern Mali city of Konna and surrounding the ancient city of Timbuktu continue to be pounded by French bombing raids in those areas. 

The rebel extremists have largely fled, as Malian ground troops are being deployed to flush out stragglers, and Malian citizens cheer in relief from the physical and ideological oppression they have suffered at the hand of Wahhabi-Salafi fanatics and drug traffickers who had overrun Northern Mali a little less than a year ago. 

The reign of terror of the extremists forced hundreds of thousands of Malians to flee their homeland into neighboring countries as refugees.

French and Malian troops have retaken Konna, and  secured the Sevare military base, once jeopardized by the Wahhabi terrorists’ push southward towards the capital city of Bamako, now also fortified by the French military presence.

“I have said it repeatedly, war is not our choice. Our choice is peace, peace again and peace always. But war was imposed to us. We will bring a massive and scathing response to our enemies.” These words were uttered by Malian President Dioncounda Traoré during his televised address to the nation on Friday, January 11, 2013. President Traoré’s address was, in fact, an official declaration of war against the Wahhabi-Salafi invaders who brought terror, violence and committed crimes against the defenseless Muslim population in Mali, murdered god-fearing Muslim citizens, oppressed them and stole their properties, and destroyed and desecrated the tombs of Muslim sages and scholars who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives and works for Islam.

Mali is  suffering the collateral damage of the Zionist inflammatory propaganda of Bernard Henry-Levi and his associates who pushed France into the US/NATO sponsored war in Libya. The fall of Libya saw the return of Malian Tuareg mercenaries who were employed by Muammar Qaddafi. These mercenaries returned militarily well-equipped –arguably better equipped– than the Malian army. Subsequently, the Salafi/Wahhabi rebels, funded and armed by France and NATO during the Libyan war, streamed into the Mali desert, which for the past decade has been under the control of terrorist groups and drug traffickers. It was this scenario which spawned the union of extremist elements into the force which has overrun Northern Mali.

The current state of affairs in Mali is due in part to the negligence under former President Amadou Toumani Touré, also known as ATT. It had been known in the intelligence circles around the world how poorly trained the Malian army was. In fact, this state of affairs was alluded to in Wikileaks cables of the US State Department which revealed in many instances the poor level of training and preparation of the Malian army. It also made mentioned of former President ATT’s complaisance with the terrorists and drug traffickers in the Sahel desert. Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika also made allusion to this in 2009, when he told AFRICOM (U.S. Africa Command) Commander General William Ward, “The Malian president needed to understand he could not be friends with both the thieves and their victims at the same time.”

Political instability in Bamako and across Mali was exacerbated by the March 2012 military coup and the incompetency of the coup leader on a strategic and military level.  The reign of terror of the extremists forced hundreds of thousands of Malians to flee their homeland into neighboring countries as refugees.

On January 19, in Gao, one of the northern cities occupied by extremists, a rumor circulated to the effect that a journalist was beaten to death by Islamists who accused him of working for the enemy. Enraged, Gao citizens killed the Islamist leader responsible for the murder named Alioune Touré, said Ms. Sema Maïga, Deputy Mayor of Gao. The retaliation was also confirmed by the director of a local private radio station, “In response, people lynched the Islamist leader Alioune Touré,” he said.

Youth in Gao decided also not to let it go, organizing a punitive expedition against the “oppressor Wahhabi Islamic police”. “We lynched and killed the head of the police. I hope that the message has passed. Fear changes sides now and it just started,” said Issa, a young teacher in Gao.

Muslim and Christians from the whole of Africa are uniting to fight hand in hand against the Wahhabi and Salafi terrorists and the spread of their violent falsehood which has caused darkness in Mali. The world must know that this is not a war against Islam, nor are the armed aggressors Muslims. The extremist rebel’s actions have nothing to do with Islam, nor with the spirit of jihad, which signifies pure love and awe of the Almighty Creator, compassion for all mankind, and sacrifice for  the benefit and improvement of  the society.
