Fuad Mohamed Khalaf, Al Qaeda leader, offers 10 camels for Obama and 20 chickens for Hillary Clinton

The senior commander of the al-Shabab militia, an al-Qaeda affiliate, offered bounties for President Obama and the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

Fuad Mohamed Khalaf countered the US bounty for his head ($33 million) with a counteroffer of 10 camels for President Obama and 20 chickens for Hillary Clinton.

“Whoever brings the [mujahideen] information about the whereabouts of infidel Obama and the lady of Bill Clinton, the woman named Hillary Clinton, I will give a reward,” reported CNN.

ABC detailed the bounties posted by the US:

Earlier this week, the U.S. offered a total of $33 million through the State Department’s Rewards for Justice program for information leading to the capture of seven different Shabaab leaders, including Khalaf.

The U.S. offered $7 million for founder and commander Ahmed Abdi Aw-Mohamed, AKA Godane or Mukhtar Abu Zubeir, five million for Khalaf and three other men, and $3 million apiece for two other leaders.

“The announcement from the U.S. government . . . will certainly help the Somali government’s efforts to end al Qaeda’s reign of terror in Somalia,” said Somalia’s transitional government in a statement Thursday. “This is an important juncture in Somali history, where the possibility of full recovery from years of chaos is within reach.”

“There is nothing new in the fact that infidels pay to have Muslim leaders killed,” said Khalaf. “They already did that by offering camels for the head of Prophet Mohammed, and $5 million is equivalent to 200 camels today.”

Khalaf was referencing a passage in the Koran in which camels were offered for the Prophet Mohammed as he fled Mecca for Medina.

“I can assure you that these kind of things will never dissuade us from continuing the holy war against them,” said Khalaf.
