A Jihad on Ethiopia!

Further provocations against Ethiopia from the Islamic warlords in Somalia. This came after previous threats against the Ethiopian people. Muslim warlords have now declared a jihad on Ethiopia. These are the same Muslim Somali groups that are tied to al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. BBC News, Somalis vow holy war on Ethiopia:

Somalia's Islamists have accused Ethiopian troops of attacking a town and have vowed a "holy war" in revenge.

The town of Bur Haqaba lies on the road from the government base in Baidoa to the Islamist-held capital, Mogadishu.

Ethiopia denies that its troops have crossed the border but does support the government against the Islamists.

An Islamist leader, wearing fatigues and holding an AK-47, said a "jihad" had been declared on Ethiopia, raising fears of a regional conflict.


The UIC control most of southern Somalia, except for a small areas around Baidoa.

Ethiopia, the US and the Somali government all accuse the UIC of having links to al-Qaeda - which it strongly denies.

The UIC controls most of southern Somalia - over the weekend, they set up a new administration in the port city of Kismayo, which they seized last month.

Somalia has not had a functioning national government since 1991.
