May Allah accept him and reunite him with his father in Al-Firdaws. They killed a 16 year old kid. Where is the justice?

Obama Has Awlaki’s 16-Yr-Old Son, Friends Killed at Dinner[using large font size is not allowed]

16-Year-Old US Citizen, Friends Were Eating Dinner When Missile Landed

[using large font size is not allowed]

 

The extra-legal assassination of New Mexico cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was certainly controversial in its own right, but reports about the assassination targeting some sort of terrorist convoy seem to be crumbling under evidence and the number of children killed in the attack.

 

Among the slain was also Abdel-Rahman Awlaki, Anwar’s 16-year-old son, one of his cousins Ahmed Abdelrahman Awlaki, and several of their friends, who were all teenage boys.

 

And despite the stereotype, the teenage boys weren’t out “doing terrorism” in some vague non-specific manner in the Shabwa Province. According to a statement from relatives, they were out to dinner, eating “under the moon light” when US missiles landed.

 

Though the Obama Administration seems pretty comfortable with assassinating the elder Awlaki, even though he was a US citizen and not charged with any crimes, the killing of the assorted other people, including several teenagers, seems considerably more suspect. Killing children with missiles isn’t exactly new to the president, of course, but Abdel-Rahman’s status as a natural-born US citizen who was never even suspected of a crime is likely to make it difficult to sweep his assassination under the rug.

Like Father, Like Son: Murdering Awlaki’s 16-Year Old Son[using large font size is not allowed]

 

We all know about the extrajudicial assassination of American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen. It was murder without due process, guaranteed him by the Fifth Amendment. Less people know about the same fate befalling his 16-year old son (I reported on it here, but details have since been clarified and expanded upon):

 

In the days before a CIA drone strike killed al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki last month, his 16-year-old son ran away from the family home in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa to try to find him, relatives say. When he, too, was killed in a U.S. airstrike Friday, the Awlaki family decided to speak out for the first time since the attacks.

 

“To kill a teenager is just unbelievable, really, and they claim that he is an al-Qaeda militant. It’s nonsense,” said Nasser al-Awlaki, a former Yemeni agriculture minister who was Anwar al-Awlaki’s father and the boy’s grandfather, speaking in a phone interview from Sanaa on Monday. “They want to justify his killing, that’s all.”

 

The teenager, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who was born in Denver in 1995, and his 17-year-old Yemeni cousin were killed in a U.S. military strike that left nine people dead in southeastern Yemen.

The boy was killed by a US drone strike while he was out to dinner with his 17-year old cousin. Nine others died.

His favorite books included Twilight and Harry Potter titles.

 

Shatha Al-Harazi

Published:20-10-2011

 

SANA’A, Oct. 19 — The news of the killing of an America teenager - purported to have links with Al-Qaeda - in a US drone strike on October 14 has provoked the anger and condemnation of human rights and child protection organizations.

 

At least five Facebook pages and groups have been created for the purpose of condemning the killing of the 16-year-old boy by drone, seen by many as a violation of a teenager’s human rights. With no proof that he is a militant, a group called “Abdulrahman Anwar Al-Awlaki, Locked In Our Hearts” is among those recently started.

 

A statement on the Facebook page reads, “A 16-year-old Yemeni-American boy was murdered on Yemeni soil by an American drone strike on Friday 10/14/2011 with the help of the Yemeni government. This page has been created to show the world the truth about these so-called democratic nations and the misleading information they are widely spreading!”

 

Such pages provide portraits of Abdulrahman, portraying him as a fun and modest youngster who spent time with his friends and enjoyed himself like any teenager. The groups say his favorite books were Twilight and Harry Potter, and his favorite musician was Shakira.

 

Another page describes the slain teenager as follows: “Abdulrahman Anwar Al-Awlaki was a typical teenage high school student. He liked swimming and was into rap and hip hop. We are angry and we will never forget. End the killing of civilians, bring the murderers to justice, and join the cause.”

 

Abdulrahman was born in Denver, Colorado in the United States on 26 August 1995. In 2002, he moved with his family to Yemen after his father became recognized by the US as one of its most-wanted terrorists. On September 30 of this year, the world received the news that the U.S had managed to kill his father. Two weeks later, Abdulrahman himself was among the latest victims of US drone strikes in Yemen.

 

“Abdulrahamn traveled to Shabwa a week before his father’s murder and left a letter for his mother in which he told her of his intention to search for his father.

 

He traveled to Shabwa without informing anyone in his family. A week later came the news of his father’s murder, he stayed two more weeks, and we contacted him, telling him to return to Sana’a,” read a statement by the Al-Awlaki family after Abdulrahman’s death.

 

Al-Awlaki’s family, who preferred not to comment on the notorious father’s death, this time broke their silence, saying that the crime of killing Abdulrahman was surrounded by lies, with news agencies and newspapers around the world reporting that Abdulrahman is over 21 years of age, when in fact he is only 16. They say this misrepresentation has been made in order to justify the U.S’s crime.

 

According to a statement made by family members, Abdulrahman was attending a barbecue with friends on October 14 when they were hit by the U.S drone strike that ended their lives.

 

According to the family, of his siblings Abdulrahman was the most similar to his father. “Abdulrahman was just like his father; thank God for that, he is the most similar to his father,” read the statement.

 

The Yemeni government claimed that Egyptian Ibrahim Al-Banna, head of Al-Qaeda Media in Yemen, was among the victims on October 14. On the day of the drone strike, the Al-Awlaki family was assured that Abdulrahman was having a barbecue with friends that night and that no Al-Qeada suspects were close when he was killed.

 

The Yemeni Organization for Childhood Protection (SYAJ) condemned targeting a child in such a strike. Ahmed Al-Qurashi, the head of the SYAJ, told the Yemen Times that even if Abdulrahman was an Al-Qaeda member, both the Yemeni and American governments shouldn’t have targeted him and killed him in this fashion, as killing outside the judicial system is a crime in itself.

 

“Abdulrahman is a victim of a general conflict; his case should be seen as an example of many other cases in which children are victims of conflicts they are not a part of,” said Al-Qurashi. In SYAJ, we don’t differentiate Abdulrahman’s situation from that of any other child killed in Change and Freedom Squares. The only difference in his case is who killed him”.

 

Moreover, Al-Qurashi said that at least 26 children - those under 18 years old – have been killed in strikes in the Abyan governorate under the banner of fighting Al-Qaeda.

 

“This is an execution outside the judicial system. Abdulrahman wasn’t even on the terrorist list like many others; even our national law doesn’t approve of executing a juvenile unless he is 18,” added Al-Qurashi.
