Daniel Maldonado Blog and Writings

Daniel Maldonado, aka Daniel Aljughaifi, is an American who is accused of joining al Qaeda and traveling to Somalia to take part in Islamist activities.

Archived copy of Maldonado's blog

According to a listing on (INTELWIRE mirror), Aljughaifi was searching for a second wife.

Listing Salem, N.H., as his home, and using the name "dmsalafi," Aljughaifi said he was looking for "a saudi sister,verry pious,18-30,kind,shy,sweet,wears hijab and can deal with poligamy" (all typos in original).

Aljughaifi's profile, last updated more than a year and a half ago, said he was planning to work as a computer technician in Saudi Arabia.

A poster on, who appears to be Aljughaifi's wife, was not especially happy with Aljughaifi's efforts to add a spouse. According to the post:
it was written there is no changing that fact. Allah made polygeny Halal and no one can change it.

from a womans point of veiw i can see being sad ,hurt, jealous bla bla bla.. but i cant see myself jumping off a building or stabbing my dh in the back.( ok i can see it but only in a day other than that lets come back to reality.

no matter how mad ,sad,hurt we get if our husbands want to do this..... weither thay do it or not us crying,yelling,throwing a tantrum acting out will never change the way thay feel inside, even if thay dont marry again it will always be a thought in there mind and we wont be able to change that.

what i have come to understand is that if its written for you it will happen no matter how many tears you cry, no matter how much you dont eat, no matter how much you fight it.

sisters lets just relax, i know easyer said than done.
sit back and go with the flow. if your dh is a good man he will take care of you and her properly.

Under the same dmsalafi handle, a poster who appears to be Aljughaifi posted poetry on the IslamicNetwork message board. A selection is excerpted below:

stuck in an ocean of tears

hearts can not set sail on the path of Allah
without tears for them to sail on
sails do not move nor ever go far
without the winds of dhikr there on
let not your eyes be set on a star
lest devils snicker and stare on
such will not guide nor protect you from narr
advise from a well wisher
to "bear on"
have you ever been wrecked off of tainted shores
without anyone knowing you traveld
regretting the fact you got on board
when the pleasure of rowing just had you
you knew you were heading rite off course
paying no attention, just baffled
showing no regret, nor remorse
watching shaytons henchmen just pass you

the secret you kept

I so long to meet the one I thaught to have met
do not think of me wrong I have no regret
sleepless nights spent alone, awake while you slept
I just wish I had known the secret you kept
do not think I have hate, don't think of me less
this is my fate, I know I am blessed
to be with you is great, yes I confess
I just wish I had known the secret you kept
only if you could see the tears in my eyes
but you were asleep, to no ones surprise
away I creep, while you find rest
I wish I had known the secret you kept
I have tried to wake you out of your slumber
not cause I hate you, but because I wonder
what is it that you conseal in your chest
I just wish I had known the secret you kept
I refuse to sleep another night without you
stand on your feet theres no need to show you how to
you knew the Sunnah as well as the rest
and that oh Ummah is the secret you kept

The Heart

I must confess I've slept with the enemy
then found unrest without solice or serenity
over stressed with all she pretends to be
she acts as if she is her own entity
she seems to shape my very identity
but whats at stake is what she once ment to me
my soul was broke and it was her who befreinded me
torn apart and it was her who then mended me
I need Quran to cure this dear freind to me
before I morn the heart that can not depend on me
our hearts are like woman
although we may doubt them
you can't live with'em
you can't live without'em

ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
