This video is called Naomi Klein: The War on Terror (1 of 2).
And here is #2.
If Somalis, if they also happen to be independent journalists, are not threatened by the United States-backed Somali warlord “transitional government” if they dare to expose that government’s corruption … and if Somalis are not homeless refugees in their own country, threatened by that United States-backed Somali warlord “transitional government” as well … and if they are not refugees in Saudi Arabia, sent back by the Saudi regime to the war in Somalia … then Somalis may end up as refugees in the Netherlands.
And then, special anti-terror police may arrest those refugees as “terrorists”, egged on to do so by the Dutch secret service AIVD. Terrorists? Really? Or is the umpteenth case where there is much media noise about (Muslim) “terrorism” where later it turns out there was much noise but few if any substance? Dutch police have already released eleven of the originally twelve Somali terror suspects.
Somalis say they are victims of extortion
December 29, 2010
Somalis who have been suspected of planning a terrorist attack are said to be victims of extortion. They had the choice: pay or be associated with terrorism.
This says Farah Nuur, the brother of one of the Somalis arrested in Rotterdam. The person said to be guilty of this extortion is the Somali journalist Dahir Alasow. This man lives in Breda in and denies in daily de Volkskrant having anything to do with the matter.
Farah Nuur says Alasow has links to the CIA and works closely with the anti-terror unit in Nairobi. Farah therefore suspects that the denunciations to the AIVD security service came from Kenya. “Dahir Alasow receives money from anti-terrorist organizations in exchange for information. He says he is a journalist, but he denounces just anybody at his site and ultimately he is just in it for the money. ”
The imam of the Dar-al Hijara mosque, Putselaan in Rotterdam, according to Farah has been extorted by Alasow as well. Farah Nuur calls the man “very dangerous” and notorious in Somali circles. The Somali men in Rotterdam say they have proof of extortion and already intended for some time to report Dahir Alasow to the police. That’s what they will do now, besides filing a complaint against the AIVD and claiming damages.
UPDATE 30 December 2010: Dutch police have released the last remaining Somali “terrorist”.
