MOGADISHU, Somalia -- Somalia's al Qaeda-allied al Shabaab rebels Saturday mocked a US offer of up to $33 million for information enabling the arrest of its top leaders, saying they would give 10 camels to anyone who helped locate President Barack Obama.
The highest price put up by the US State Department on Thursday was for al Shabaab chief Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed -- more commonly known as Godane or Abu Zubayr -- with a $7 million bounty for information on where he is hiding.
"I can assure you that these kind of things will never dissuade us from continuing the holy war against them," said another senior al Shabaab leader, Fuad Mohamed Khalaf, or "Shongole," in a message carried on several websites.
"There is nothing new in the fact that infidels pay to have Muslim leaders killed. They already did that by offering camels for the head of Prophet Muhammad, and the dollar is the camel of today," he said.
He was referring to an offer of 100 camels made for Muhammad when he was fleeing Mecca for Medina, according to the Koran.
Khalaf added, "Whoever informs the mujahedeen fighters of the place where Obama can be found will get 10 camels and for [US Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton, we will offer 10 roosters and 10 hens..."
That’s easy, obama’s on the golf course.
Where do I send the claim for the camels
Clinton should get the camel toes,
Obama gets the cocks.
AFTER OBAMA LET THE POOR GUY WHO HELPED GET BIN LADEN GET ARRESTED AND JAILED FOR 33 YEARS ????
THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD A PLAN TO GET HIM OUT OF THE COUNTRY AND GIVE HIM HIS $33 MILLION
And despite his arrest, and the fact that they were knowingly harboring Osama, we're still paying Pakistan billions in foreign and military aid!
Sold ......to the ugly toothless rag head on the third row with a parrot on his shoulder.
Stupid Somalis, that should be 10 donkeys. He is a Democrat.
They’re not interested in Mitt Romney. Maybe they don’t have the elephants.
Talk about stabbing friends in the back. Didn’t this fellow ask for asylum in the USA?
But the juveniles in this administration had to brag (off the record) about how cool the plan was, including the help they got from the doctor in the village, and that was that.
I'm sure life is pleasant for him, sitting in a Paki prison with a few hundred islametards, as the guy who sold out al Qaeda.
.. Bugs Bunny outraged, declares war on Africa.
(The cartoon movie where the bounty for rabbits was less than all other wildlife and Bugs was furious . . . .)
Hmmm... what could I do with 10 camels?
Going online to see if there's a BBQ Camel recipe.
Psst, try William Ayers house.....he might be there...
Let's see; that's half a pack of cigarettes. At the current market value of cigarettes that's what - around $ 5.00 American.
You know, that might still be to much...
No way is that putz worth 10 camels.
it’s easy to find Obama.
Just look for a large airplane with United States of America written on it along with the Presidential seal.
If he aint on it when you spot it he will be on it soon. He flies every day.

Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed is the founder of Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahidin (al-Shabaab). He was publicly named emir of the organization in December 2007. Aw-Mohamed has exercised command responsibility for al-Shabaab operations across Somalia. He claimed his group was responsible for the May 2007 assassination of a judge in Beledweyne, Somalia; and in March 2007, he coordinated attacks on Ethiopian troops in Somalia. He has also served as a conduit for financing to al-Shabaab. On November 20, 2008, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated aw-Mohamed under Executive Order 13224, which targets terrorists and those providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism. Aw-Mohamed was also designated under Executive Order 13536 for contributing to the violence and the deterioration of security in Somalia.
Al-Shabaab was the militant wing of the Somali Council of Islamic Courts that took over most of southern Somalia in the second half of 2006. Al-Shabaab has continued its violent insurgency in southern and central Somalia. The group has claimed responsibility for many bombingsincluding various types of suicide attacksin Mogadishu and in central and northern Somalia, typically targeting Somali Government officials and perceived allies of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia. Al-Shabaab was likely responsible for a wave of five coordinated suicide car bombings in October 2008 that simultaneously hit targets in two cities in northern Somalia, killing at least 26 people and injuring 29 others. Al-Shabaab was responsible for the twin suicide bombings in Kampala, Uganda, on July 11, 2010, which killed more than 70 people, including one American. The group is responsible for the assassination of Somali peace activists, international aid workers, numerous civil society figures, and journalists. In February 2012, al-Shabaab and al-Qaida announced their formal alliance.
The U.S. Department of State named al-Shabaab a Foreign Terrorist Organization under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (as amended) on February 26, 2008, and a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity under Executive Order 13224 on February 29, 2008.
