Islamists in Somali alliance plan (BBC, 9/06/07)

Somali Islamists and opposition leaders are meeting in the Eritrean capital Asmara to forge a common front against the transitional government.

About 300 delegates are attending the talks with observers from the European Union, Arab league and the UN.

Islamist leader Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, said to be leading the Mogadishu insurgency, is thought to be attending.

Mogadishu has seen a surge in violence since the Ethiopian-backed government troops routed Islamists last December.

Just don't get froggy with the 'Death to America' stuff, and you'll be allowed to stay. Start that stuff and you and any friends will be toast one way or another.

You may hate, so long as you fear to step across the lines - and don't help any proxies to do the same. You ignore us and don't help our avowed enemies, you may live. Understand?
