Shaykh Attiyatallah = Abd-al-Karim al-Libi = Atiyah Abd al-Rahman???

SNIPPET: "So, what I’m seeing here is that the death of these two Mauritanian scholars offered a convenient opportunity for al-Qaida to start co-branding Abu Yahya al-Libi and Atiyah abd al-Rahman (Attiyatallah) together as the unified tip of al-Qaida’s ideological spear. In other words, the leadership transition has begun. The heirs are no longer apparent. They have been named. It began with letters to al-Zarqawi and videotaped interviews and recorded statements and sermons. The naming continued with getting props in Exoneration and photoshoots and now joint releases.

This jointly written eulogy release (I have never seen AQ release a two-authored eulogy before) is also a tactical move designed, I believe, to reinvigorate movement in Mauritania, both to decrease the security pressure on their bro’s next door in the Maghreb (this is a classic Abu Musab al-Suri strategy – see his writing on revolution in Syria) but also because they smell the ‘musk’ of yesteryear and think that the death of these shaykhs might be just the kind of trigger that Mauritanian youth need to stop studying and to start fighting."
