ABU DAJANA AL-AFGHANI? Who is Abu Dujana al-Afghani, the person who is signing letters demanding the withdrawal of Spanish troops from Iraq and Afghanistan? I don't know. But the nom de guerre is quite interesting. Abu Dujana was a warrior who fought alongside Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the name was not that uncommon among mujahedin fighters in Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion. Al-Afghani translates to the Afghan (in Arabic, of course), perhaps indicating that the person is veteran mujahedin of the Afghan war. Anyhow, there is some information about the guy under a different spelling of the name.
