Department of Public Information News and Media Division New York SECURITY COUNCIL AL-QAIDA AND TALIBAN SANCTIONS COMMITTEE
ADDS NAME OF ONE INDIVIDUAL TO CONSOLIDATED LIST
On 27 May 2009, the Security Council Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee approved the addition of the entry specified below to its Consolidated List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council resolution 1822 (2008) adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.
C. Individuals associated with Al-Qaida
QI.H.269.09. Name: 1: BEKKAY 2: HARRACH 3: na 4: na Title: na Designation: na DOB: 4 Sep. 1977 POB: Berkane, Morocco Good quality a.k.a.: a) Abu Talha al Maghrabi b) al Hafidh Abu Talha der Deutsche (the German) Low quality a.k.a.: na Nationality: German Passport no.: German passport number 5208116575 issued in Bonn valid until 7 Sep. 2013 National identification no.: a) German national identity card number (Bundespersonalausweis Nr.) 5209243072, issued in Bonn, Germany, valid until 7 Sep. 2013 b) German driving licence number J17001W6Z12, issued in Bonn, Germany Address: na Listed on: 27 May 2009 Other information: Believed to be in the Afghanistan/Pakistan border area (as at Apr. 2009). Member of Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01.), reportedly since at least March 2007.
In accordance with Section 6, paragraph (g) of the Committees Guidelines for the Conduct of its Work, the publicly releasable portion of the statement of case detailing the bases for listing of the above-mentioned individual, as provided by the designating State(s), is included herewith (statement of case in italic).
With the help of a person who has been charged by a German court with smuggling humans for Al Qaeda, Bekkay HARRACH left Germany in January 2007 to travel to an Al Qaeda training camp in the Afghan-Pakistani border region. If he had not already joined Al Qaeda, he did so there and expressed his willingness to take part in military training in order to fight on behalf of Al Qaeda.
In January 2009 at the latest, HARRACH provided the German narration for a video entitled Das Rettungspaket für Deutschland (The rescue package for Germany), which was produced by Al Qaedas media agency As-Sahab, in this way disseminating Al Qaedas demands and message to the German people. This video, produced with HARRACHs assistance, was secured on the al-fallujah website, known for distributing Islamist content, on 17 January 2009 and later found in several Internet forums.
In the video, HARRACH discusses Germanys social, economic and political situation. He announces that the German troops in Afghanistan should expect to be attacked by Al Qaeda and their allies, the Taliban, and links this announcement to an appeal to the German population to make the right choice in the 2009 Bundestag elections. He also states that the Mujahedin are not interested in a conflict with Germany, but that Germany would not be spared if it did not stay away from evil. From the context, it is apparent that with evil, he is referring to Germanys role in the fight against international terrorism in general and its contribution to the coalition troops in Afghanistan in particular.
In another Internet video distributed via the Al Qaeda media office on 26 February 2009 entitled Der Islam und die Finanzkrise(Islam and the financial crisis), HARRACH presents his view of the causes and effects of the global finance and economic crisis. He calls it a punishment by God and says the only way to solve it is by introducing a social order based on the Koran and Sharia law. In the video, Harrach says that future statements will be forthcoming via As-Sahab.
According to investigations by the Federal Public Prosecutor, there is good reason to believe that HARRACH has been a member of the foreign terrorist organization Al Qaeda since March 2007. The threats he has distributed via the Al Qaeda media office demonstrate his willingness as a member of Al Qaeda to participate in its terrorist activity all the way to suicide attacks.
The Committees List is updated regularly on the basis of relevant information provided by Member States and regional organizations. This is the eleventh update of the List in 2009. An updated List is accessible on the Committees website at the following URL: http://www.un.org/sc/committees/1267/consolist.shtml.

“German al Qaeda leader sanctioned by US Treasury”
By BILL ROGGIO

SNIPPET: “A senior al Qaeda leader based in Pakistan’s tribal areas who has recently starred in al Qaeda’s propaganda aimed at Germany has been sanctioned by the US Treasury Department.
Bekkay Harrach, a German national who is based along the Afghan-Pakistani border, has been designated as a terrorist under Executive Order 13224 “for acting for or on behalf of al Qaeda.” The designation allows the US to freeze his assets, prevent him from using financial institutions, and prosecute him for terrorist activities. In May 2009, Harrach was designated as a terrorist by the UN Security Council’s al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee.
Harrach, who goes by the alias Abu Talha al Almani, has been a member of al Qaeda since March of 2007, according to the German Federal Public Prosecutor.”
Note: He is a white jihadi.
