The 21st Century Phenomenon



* Adelbert Naaktgeboren, 25, a christian born covert to Islam also known by his Arabic name as Abu Adam Saifoula (Saifoula – sword of god) is, probably, a Belgian citizen from the town of Ghent.


He was interviewed by a French journalist Melanie Bois in Pakistan, on Monday 01/18/2010, wearing American stile military uniforms and represents himself as a Muslim Al Qaeda volunteer warrior. Abu Adam Saifoula claimed that he’s been fighting with Al Qaeda against NATO-ISAF troops for five years. “A holy war against the infidels…a war which will only end when the infidels all convert to Islam, or are killed” (see also the case of – Muriel Degauque).


According to Melanie Bois he met with Abu Adam Saifoula in Pakistan 6 kilometers from a village Dara Adamkhel in the area of Peshawar, a stronghold of Tehrik-e-Taleban.  


Mélanie Bois said that in his former life the man was named ‘Adelbert Naaktgeboren’. To the camera he says that he’s ‘from Belgium’ and ‘from Ghent’. “He didn’t show me his passport. But when the camera was off, he spoke to me in French and Flemish. He also looks like a European”


Adelbert Naaktgeboren said he got interested in Islam in 2001, after the attacks on the WTC towers in New York (The 9/11). He couldn’t bear that the whole world turned against the Muslims. Very quickly he got in touch with Salafists friends in Dilbeek (see – Salafiya), and through them with members of Al Qaeda. The classic interpretation of the Koran wasn’t strict enough for him.


Adelbert Naaktgeboren said it’s inevitable that the battle would also be conducted in the West “Because our sisters must take off their headscarf in school” (which is obliged by Belgian law). Adelbert – Abu Adam Saifoula added that five years ago he was given a choice by Al Qaeda “Either he would become a sleeper fighter in Europe, or he could go to Afghanistan to fight there. He chose the latter. First a member of Al Qaeda suggested he train for six months in a distant area of Pakistan. After that training, he joined the Al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan”.


Adelbert Naaktgeboren told Melanie Bois that the sermons of Anwar al-Awlaki had inspired him “Via the internet”. Anwar Al-Awlaki is also the man who inspired the Nigerian Umar Abdulmutallab, the underwear bomber of Flight-253, on Christmas Day.


Nobody at the Ghent prosecution could say yesterday whether Adelbert Naaktgeboren is a real name, and whether the man is known to the Belgian police services. “But we’re taking this especially seriously and making it an absolute priority.”


 “It’s also remarkable that the interviewed terrorist and his armed bodyguard are clearly Europeans. You see it in the eyes behind the ski-mask of the bodyguard and also in the accent of the terrorist. When he says that he’s from Ghent, he pronounces the name of the city with a Dutch accent. And he’s also speaking of Dilbeek. All details that a French journalist and an Al Qaeda fighter couldn’t just feign” said Claude Moniquet, a Belgian terror expert.


* Although Abu Adam Saifoula boosted his dress was taken form Americans killed in battle in Afghanistan they were, probably, looted in one of the many attacks on NATO supply convoys in Khyber pass between Peshawar in Pakistan and Kabul in Afghanistan (see – Khyber 12.07.08).
