Investigators have discovered a "Jihadi village" of white German al-Qaeda insurgents, including Muslim converts, in Pakistan's tribal areas close to the Afghan border.
The village, in Taliban-controlled Waziristan, is run by the notorious al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which plots raids on Nato forces in Afghanistan.

A recruitment video presents life in the village as a desirable lifestyle choice with schools, hospitals, pharmacies and day care centres, all at a safe distance from the front.

In the video, the presenter, "Abu Adam", the public face of the group in Germany, points his finger and asks: "Doesn't it appeal to you? We warmly invite you to join us!"

According to German foreign ministry officials a growing number of German families, many of North African descent, have taken up the offer and travelled to Waziristan where supporters say converts make up some of the insurgents' most dedicated fighters.

Did'nt AQ release a video about the same time as the German elections, promising attacks if Germany did'nt pull it's troops out of Afghanistan?

I would imagine a white Muslim convert would be high on Al Queda's wish list...

My bold - I would imagine a white Muslim convert WILL be high on the death list of the German troops serving in Afghanistan.

No doubt. But if AQ has any sense, they won't put him anywhere near the front line. He(or she, of course)would do far more damage back in the Fatherland.

Not the first time a German has converted to Islam. Riff war in Morocco, there was a deserter called Klems who taught the tribesman the finer point of modern weaponry against his former French employers.

Well if the Luftwaffe are looking for more civilians to bomb...this could definitely be target for tonight - to coin a phrase!

German efficiancy and Islamic fanticism - a chilling combination! 8O :twisted:

IIRC, Mohammed Atta, field leader of the 9/11 attacks, went to collage in Germany.

There was aCSgt from the Paras who joined PIRA and there was another in the QRIH who was in PIRA as well!

He also went to collage in NY - at least bits of him were scrapped all over the shop there...a pointillist statement perhaps? A load of Jackson Pollocks.

I think a bit more worrying is how many Brits are out there fighting for the Taliban, does anybody know of any figures.
