It's a message from Jama3at ansar al eslam, or the group of the supporters of Islam-Bahrain Branch. They basically swear they're allegiance to Osama bin Laden, and warn of imminent attacks and bombs in Bahrain. They tell all Kufars, Americans, and their supporter to beware, and fall all believers to avoid the following places:
-The residency of the American ambassador
-The American Embassy
-All decadent shopping malls
-University of Bahrain
-Oil pipes in Bahrain
Now at first I was worried. I'm coming back to bahrain mid christmas until after the new year, and that seems the perfect time for a target. Furthermore, all of the above places I do pass by in one way or another. I like going to the desert, especially in winter, and so does the rest of Bahrain. Two of my good friends live in the same area as the American ambassador, and my aunt's house is less than half a mile from the American Embassy, in Abu Ghazal.
Also, what exactly qualifies as a "decadent" shopping mall? I'm sure my definition of decadent, although pretty conservative, does not exactly conform to their definition of decadent. Is decadent anywhere where women and men mix? That would include everywhere! So do Geant, al Makhazen Al Kubra, and Jawad qualify? So what are people to do? Starve??
Clubs and Discos? Well.. It's New Years, so.. no comment.
And why is it University of Bahrain? There are much more "decadent" universities in Bahrain. How about the Canadian University? And why would you exactly target a place of learning? Is it because of the resistance to separating males and females? There are also substantial fraction of the university that are hardcore fundamentalist. Hmmmmm......
Also, I can see how bombing the American embassy or the residency of the ambassador would hurt the Americans, but how would the rest primarily hurt the americans? We pump out insignificant amounts of oil onto the market, and clubs, discos, and shopping malls are attended by bored teens, many of them Bahraini.
Taking a closer look at the site, however, I became much more skeptical. My gut feeling, and I could be wrong (I hope not) is that this is a prank by some guy who has too much time on his hand. The website is just riddled with many spelling and grammatical mistakes. For example, in the header, they call him "shei7" osama bin laden" instead of "sheikh". Moumeneen is also spelled wrong: moumeneyeeen. Then again, these guys are not known to be the brightest guys at school, however, especially if the guy who wrote it is the same guy they're going to dispose off in the suicide attack (you wouldn't waste a good brain, no matter what your beliefs, would you?).
There was another part I wasn't very sure of. They call Osama bin Laden "Hujjat Al Eslam". Now correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm definitely not sure of this, but I thought that was an expression used mainly by shias, not sunnis. I don't know how much Bin Laden would've liked being called that.
