Mali is in turmoil. Touareg rebels back from Libya are taking over entire cities in the north.
The military coup adds just another level of complexity to the situation.

Hello. Great negative consequences will follow. Chaos will prevail in the country. We don’t want violence. Things will be better. We still have many problems. The high unemployment rate will easily trigger revolution in the country. People are aspiring for a better Morocco. We thankfully don’t have a high rate of illiteracy anymore thanks to our King. Morocco made promises to its youth, and we hope that it will fulfill them for a better future.

Algerian elections follow many rituals. Politicians set up an entire system for this end. They choose security committees to control society and make sure everything follows the same path. Many young people aspire to establish a new law for women who are a trump card. Men have matured, that’s why they play this card. Women are emotional and would settle for even 1/5 of their rights. What’s left is to allow them to disobey religion in the name of religion.
May Allah grant us victory.
The Malian coup is a threat to security in the Sahel.
The Malian coup is making the Maghreb sand move, and affecting the stability of its countries. It’s a clone of the Arab Spring revolutions whose influence is starting to expand to regional countries that thought – until very recently – that they were immune to unrest.
Let me add another question: What impact will the Malian coup have on the fight against terrorism in the Islamic Maghreb; on separatist, national and religious movements in the Sahel; and on North Africa in general?

Terrorism is at its best if we look at the consequences of revolutions of the Arab spring. In Libya, it provided a huge arsenal that fell in the hands of renegades and outlaws and crossed the borders with the blessing of the West for political reasons that we do not understand, the scope and the revolution in Tunisia and Egypt provided the ideological cover with the arrival of Islamist parties that became fattened while the young paid the price with their blood, I am afraid that we discover too late, the bait will be gone and the hook will stay attached in the throat
Terrorism will have a full state because Africans think only of eating and drinking and do not analyze the issue and do not take the security aspect in consideration because they are monsters without thinking
In fact, the military coup is just the ugly facet of terrorism. It is therefore natural for it to feed it and revive it against legitimacy, along with the tendencies of the destructive extremists barbarians who fear the ballot boxes and thus democracy.
Glory and thanks be to Allah and Glory be to Allah the great, God has reasons behind his creations, the struggle between good and evil will continue until Judgement Day
Morocco is dangerous. We hate the current situation, and we are tired of it. This is too much. We need jobs. Our rights are violated. We will never forgive them.

All this is within the plan of the United States, the only one capable of creating chaos in any Arab or African state
I don’t know what’s going on
A coup on the Malian regime would not surprise anyone, and the reason is simpler than solving grandmothers’ puzzles… The Malian regime is unable to expel extremist organizations, and is considered an aerie for holding Western hostages, .. And neighboring countries have enough concerns and problems, making it impossible for them to chase militants deep in the Malian region, and extremist groups find in the Azaouad people their prey (because of poverty and marginalization, ignorance and chaos) … Therefore the only solution to eliminate the security risk in the region may be in the hands of the military [AFRICOM base] in Germany, directly or through the support of some groups that are far from the Salafi Jihad .. or the establishment of an entity or a small state that will be responsible for security, and carry out the duty against the enemies of the new world [al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb] … and what will happen in the future,is a bloody terrible internal confrontation between supporters of armed groups affiliated with al-Qaeda on the one hand … and .. Remnants of the Arabs and Tuaregs returning from Libya after the fall of the crow of conflicts and repressive regimes and the stoned master brother Leader Muammar Gaddafi, the great dictator .. In addition to the sons of Tuaregs that are backed by Algeria and Mauritania … And so as not to dwell any longer …You must expect a scenario identical to a large extent to what happened in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the Soviet Union and the subsequent internal fighting between what is known as the Mujahideen followers of the movement of the North, led by Ahmad Shah Mansour and its foe the Taliban backed by Pakistan … Accept my greetings, a Mauritanian writer
The movement of Azaouad is not Dangerous it’s simply seeking to live “Hchicha Talba Me isha”! It’s the jihadist AQMI that is dangerous, for them the Maghreb is not Mali but Algeria and Morocco and Tunisia where they have a foot! On the other hand those who kidnapped the Algerian consul are like the AQMI version of the Marines with “a beard”! They obey those who pull the strings, the secret services of the region have DOUBTS?? Be aware that young innocent and gullible Muslims are being recruited by Terrorists in all the villages and towns of the Maghreb that can be your son or mine! be aware!
Why do they fight their brothers, let them go to the Jews and liberate Palestine. States are advancing and we are fighting each other in the name of Islam and Jihad, Wake up O Arab and people of live conscience
The coup in Mali is considered a threat to Algeria and the evidence is the kidnapping of the Algerian consul in the city of Java, and Al Qaeda will work to force Algeria to pay the ransom therefore violating its principle that it is opposed to it, which makes France the beneficiary that is seeking to free its hostages from this group
Do you know that life is like a candle? It’s meant to burn away. The best thing in life is hope, not separation.
This is a controversial question… Is it possible to link between the Malian coup and the Syrian events? This distracts people from the failure of colonial forces… Isn’t Algeria targeted? Didn’t separatism fail in the Kabylie region? Didn’t sectarianism between Abadites and Malikites fail in Ghardaia?

Arab countries have started eating each other after this coup,like the whale eating a bigger whale.
I think what happened in Mali is an American conspiracy aiming to establish a base in the heart of Africa.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious. Before talking about gender equality, we should talk about equality between women who wear the hijab and those who don’t in news casting and other fields.
This is a sign of the end of times.
Peace be upon you. I don’t talk much, but when I speak up, I am right. To improve the situation in Arab countries, the first thing to do is abandon the mentality of the middle Ages; both the government and the people are concerned. We live in an era of darkness and decay, because our dictatorial governments do not encourage industry and agriculture; they only encourage music and football, through which they numb people.
We do not understand the meaning of the Maghreb, so how can we analyze the events happening in Mali? Are you avoiding the term “Arab Maghreb” which is also Maghreb-related? After violating Libya and eliminating its historic leadership to achieve old colonial objectives that Libya used to face in Africa and the Arab world, there will be many changes in the world, and not only in Africa and Arab countries.
I can publish comments here. Please approve them.
The Maghreb lost a lot with us.
The recent coup in Mali is plotted by powerful countries, and will have a great impact on Maghreb countries.
Peace be upon you: the bee community. A single colony consists of tens of thousands of individuals, headed by the Queen and from among the large number of bees there are males and they are characterized by their relatively large size and they cannot sting to defend themselves so they are peaceful. However, despite the large number of males and the benefits they provide their peers and that is to pollinate the Queen in order to produce fertilized eggs without which all the bees become extinct. However, they are oppressed and unwanted and the worst is that they are killed in a horrifying way and thrown out of the cell and of those who survive will not be allowed inside the cell hence they are forced to die outside from hunger and cold and rain and snow … etc… I saw a dream and it is as follows: I saw that many human societies gave ears to other communities with the same attributes, but stronger than them physically so they whispered to them to behave with their males like the bees do, so they scattered them and tore them apart and exiled them and plotted against them in seditious and aggressive ways and called them bad names thus they are terrorists, and they listened to them And then I woke up.
I think what happened in Libya was in favor of the Tuaregs. It’s intriguing how some people in the Maghreb are fighting the Tuaregs. Northern Mali is going through the same experience as Afghanistan. That’s probably an excuse for the French intervention.
In the name o Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious. Praise be to Allah. A professor was giving a lecture on stress management. He held up a glass of water, and asked the students, "How much do you think this glass weighs?” Answers ranged from 50 to 500 grams. The professor replied, "The absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. Its weight depends on the period of time I keep holding it. If I hold the glass for a minute, nothing will happen. If I hold it for an hour, my hand will ache. But if I hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance. The glass’s weight doesn’t change at all, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. If we carry our problems all the time, there will be a time when we won’t be able to carry on, as burdens will get heavier. We should put down the glass, and rest for a while before holding it up again. We should let go of our burdens from time to time, to regain our vitality and continue carrying them again. When returning from work, you should let go of professional problems and never take them with you home, because they’ll be awaiting you the next morning to carry them again.
The elephant and the rope. One day, I was thinking about elephants, and was confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not! I saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” I was amazed. These animals – which can lift huge weights – could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? Try to achieve something, and change your life in a positive way.
My brothers, he who puts his finger in a hole gets bitten.
Libya and its men will burn anyone who dares harm it.
The situation in Mali is a disaster in the black continent.
I hope that we can be free men.
Mounir Barakat. Algeria should implement an offensive strategy instead of being defensive, because the events in Mali are a moving virus… It’s a threat to internal security.
They had enough humiliation.
The military coup has become familiar to the nation and I wish that the people of the Maghreb remain safe
I am very angry because of what the partisans of religion did to our Algerian consul when they kidnapped him. What did he do to them they are criminals and deserve to be killed
If faith is lost then no security and no life for the ones who don’t revive religion
The conflict in Mali has a significant impact on the countries of the Maghreb not only that, but it could cause a major defect in their security and that’s through the smuggling of arms and other things to these countries
Tuareg make Algeria call for unity in the east and separation in the west Dr. Kebir Aldadece
The Tuareg or Amazigh of the Sahara are peaceful and free people, they enjoy the desert guided by the stars and heal themselves with wild herbs, and feed on camel’s milk rambling between Mali and Niger, Libya, Algeria, Burkina Faso .. Their activities since the defeat of colonialism were limited because they lacked stability, money and weapons. And most of their demands were social or cultural … But the NATO intervention in Libya and the overthrow of the Kaddafi regime was introduced to the Tuareg as a gift that they never dreamed of. So after the powers went against " the king of kings of Africa and the dean of Arab rulers” and after Arabs rejected the Libyan regime, Kaddafi did not find other than the Tuareg so he supplied them with arms and money and SUVs and seduced them with money so that they can protect him from NATO rocket launchers and the rebellion of his people, without knowing that he will ignite the region, a fire that may take years to put out, and even after his departure the weapons of Gaddafi – with which he has long supported the rebel movements in African Chad, Angola, Guinea Bissau, Eritrea, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and the Polisario – will remain a nuisance to those who were his neighbors. With the outbreak of the Tuareg rebellion, and the declaration of the establishment of the State of Azwad on April 6, 2012, and after the military coup in Mali all the Algerian borders were ignited: its borders with Morocco are tense because of the Polisario, and its borders in the east are on fire because of the revolutions of Libya and Tunisia, and today the ring is completed with the revolution of the Tuareg to close in its face all exits except the sea, and place Algeria in a position not enviable, a position that may confuse all its cards in the region, and make it use two measures, if the strategy is to support the self-determination of people, as claimed by the country of the one million martyrs – this tune can’t hold water anymore after supporting Gaddafi against his own people .. The Tuareg rebellion against the Government of Mali and the unilateral Declaration of the founding of the State Azwad put Algeria today at a crossroads: either swim against the tide again and sing outside the international community and declare its support to the Tuareg and support the national movement of liberation
The current situation in Mali is causing chaos in the region as a whole. It also enables al-Qaeda access to a base and position that increases its power especially taking advantage of the Libyan crisis.
The convenience marriage is an offence, it is very dangerous for everyone.
If all countries fear war then how are massacres topics for discussion

Talking about the chaos that prevails in Africa is similar to quicksand in the desert, since the existing ruling power there does not rise to a level that qualifies it to have a final say on the situation in Mali. Those countries are only scattered entities that form at one point and pull together when hatred is synchronized with interests. They do not have any considerations towards a nation or country. Often, coups take place by party leaders who do not have the qualifications to rule or even to lead a small military regiment. Today the Arab spring extends shyly to the desert to increase its dryness and agitation because ruggedness there is a force majeure that cannot be overcome or even circumvented which qualifies the region for all possibilities from terrorism to smuggling to chaos and instability. The Malian event is manufactured by outside powers, topped by France, which is still working with the mentality of the colonizer and believing in its history and lost glory never realizing that people moved from that gloomy stage to a world where everything moves. The North African countries are the ones who will suffer the most from the chaos in the coast because they did not want the peoples to share some of the social changes, such as the neighbors who thought they were freed when they ended up in the captivity of the golden chains of the Western powers, which has growing interests and taste for benefits resulting from chaos. Terrorism is alien to us; we do not understand its internal implications except that it’s against freedom, hatred and religious and ethnic conflicts. The truth is a form of colonization and International distribution of spheres of influence in order to interfere and the question is when would we get rid of the burden when would governments end their eternal struggle with the reality of their people how much time is needed to understand the facts as they are Isn’t it right to properly mobilize people so they can understand the emerging risks. If the ruler does not care about his people and their cohesion in the face of dangers, it is not possible then to eliminate the impact from its root because the nation is what needs to be preserved because the people are the ones who ignite jihad and resistance against the chaos resulting from political formations that are circumstantial made by the other party
Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds, prayer and peace be upon his noblest messenger Mohammed the honest and trustworthy and upon his family and companions (Oh God, Bashar has shown us his strength O God show him the wonders of yours in terms that he doesn’t expect or predict and make him a lesson to every oppressive tyrant, you are the omnipotent and blessings and peace upon Muhammad and his companions, thank God, Lord of the Worlds
The final solution to eliminate poverty requires three plans priority for employment to those who are over the legal age for employment and college graduates for more than ten years and the reduction of bank interest rates and to give opportunities for foreign investment
God will provide a solution

On the map of northern Africa, is there one Sahara (Moroccan Sahara) and only one Sahraoui “people” deserving the support of the military government of Algeria? In a large part of Sahara, in southern Algeria, there is also a great Sahraoui people, whose spokesperson HAMZA AL MOKHTAR expressed its will to be independent a long time ago. Besides, there are Touaregs and other Saharan tribes. But unfortunately, according to the military government in Algeria, on the map, only one Sahara (Moroccan Sahara) deserves its independence!!! Amazigh and Touareg people want to be independent too. And that is how we are going to build the desired Maghreb unity. We are now facing a strange political doctrine. Maybe a kind of new HARKISM. Because this political practice is still at the service of the colonial strategy, on all sides : political – economical – cultural – linguistic. The revolution of the brotherly people of Algeria has been unacceptably hijacked.
The application of Islam should be controlled in order to face terrorism.
