'My son has joined al-Qa'ida'

by Richard Kerbaj from The Australian

Khadra Nimale's son Ahmed Ali went missing in December in east Africa while fighting against the Ethiopian-backed Somalian military. Ms Nimale said relatives in Somalia believed her 25-year-old son had changed his name and was working as an interpreter with al-Qa'ida. She accused Mohammed Omran - the head of the fundamentalist Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah association, who believes Osama bin Laden is a "good man" - of turning Mr Ali into a hardliner ... Ms Nimale said her son embraced Wahabism - a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam espoused by bin Laden - shortly after the September 11 attacks in the US in 2001. She said at that time members of Melbourne's Somalian community whom she'd never met were urging parents to send their children to Islamic literature classes.
