You’re late He belongs to

You’re late

He belongs to a five-member cell of a secretive Islamic
group pursuing the overthrow of secular governments. His organization
historically has promoted peaceful means to that revolutionary end. But
he has grown fed up of living underground and is ready to pick up a gun.

Really now. That wasn’t happening before? Seriously, Peter Baker of the Washington PostPeter Baker
should check out osh in the park in Namangan and then head over to
Chust for some sweet knives, he’d get a new story at least.
Though there’s nothing new in this story, it is timely because it draws
attention to the current crackdown in Uzbekistan and how ineffective it
is. Also, there’s good info on Hizb ut-Tahrir and US pressure on
Uzbekistan to back off on the group.
