SANA'A, YEMENLeaders of the New Mujahideen jihadist movement say their latest holy war should appeal to people from all walks of Muslim life. "If you like bombing, bomb manufacturing, effigy-burning, maintaining inflammatory websites, or just 'hajjing out,' the Nu Mooj has something for you!" read a statement on the group's home page. "Jihad is better when friends come together!" The Nu Mooj is expected to recruit several hundred like-minded fanatics to their holy cause of fighting Western imperialism before factional violence tears it apart later this year.
