It has been reported that Barack Obama’s administration has authorised the assassination of Anwar Al-Awlaki.
The Akh is very disturbed to read such developments, where anyone openly resisting the manoeuvres of a western colonial resource hungry military machine, can have a death notice placed on their head, with no evidence submitted, nevermind being charged with any material offence.
Where is the outcry from the Muslims and Islamic organisations in America?
If they are successful in making Sheikh Anwar Al-Awlaki a Shaheed, then the only outcome will be is that his status will be elevated to another level and he will become regarded as the most popular english speaking da’eee and his lectures will find an even wider audience.
The Akh can draw a clear comparison with that of Sayd Qutb when it was said to me that if you want to know why Sayd Qutb was executed then read his masterpiece Milestones.
Similarly, if you want to know why they are after Anwar Al-Awlaki then all you need to do is to listen to his lectures.
Perhaps the headline should be redrafted to “US Approves the inevitable murder of innocent yemeni civilians in what will be a futile attempt to kill Anwar al-Awlaki”.
