The majority of the Somali leaders are warlords or mafia-like businessmen connected to pirates, arms smugglers, stolen car networks and people-traffickers. The profits from the ransoms of hijacking the cargo ships go to the Somalia al-Shabaab Islamists, just one more example of al-Qaeda terrorist financing on the cheap, huge profits from ransoms, low cost with the al-Shabaab pirates.

The Muslim Mafia Dons in Dubai have access to the shipping routes of specific cargo ships due to their long time involvement in the stolen car networks that ships stolen vehicles from around the world to Dubai for re-papering and re-export.
Dawood Ibrahim’s criminal network, which is currently headquartered somewhere in Pakistan with Dawood Ibrahim the Muslim Mafia crime lord (living in Dubai), has found common cause with Al Qaida, sharing his smuggling routes (cargo ships) with the terror syndicate and funding attacks by Islamic extremists aimed at destabilizing the Indian government. Dubai-based underworld leader Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar whose prominent list of film stars were among his guests in Dubai, has a circle of political contacts in Mumbai India which are legendary.
India's intelligence community believes that Dawood Ibrahim has deep linkages with affluent traders in Mombassa, often individuals of south Asian descent. Anees Ibrahim (inside man with access to monitor shipping routes for lucrative targets), Dawood Ibrahim's younger brother, Anees, made substantial investments in local shipping, which were used to facilitate the movement of narcotics into East Africa (Somalia) for onward sale in Europe and the United States.
August 13/2008 Anees Ibrahim, younger brother of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, and one of his two accomplices — Salim Chiplun and Shamsher Dawood alias Chhota Dawood — who were reportedly detained by the Saudi authorities at the Jeddah Airport, Anees was detained for allegedly carrying a fake passport.
Haji Mohammad Ismail, a magnate with interests in the cold-storage business and shipping, is among several Dubai-based businessmen who has for long faced media allegations of using Somalia, Dubai and Mombassa-based operations to support Dawood Ibrahim's trafficking operations and directly linked to Dawood's network. In 1997, a Nairobi court charged another Dawood Ibrahim-linked businessman, Madat Ali Chatur, with customs and tax-fraud.

In October 2003, the United States Treasury Department officially determined that the crime syndicate's "smuggling routes from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa are shared with Osama bin-Laden and his terrorist network." The U.S. Treasury Department also said that Dawood Ibrahim had "financially supported Islamic militant groups working against India, such as Lashkar-e-Taiba."
India’s most-wanted fugitive and international terrorist Dawood Ibrahim wanted for his links with Al Qaeda-related terrorist groups and involvement in the global stolen car network which he runs from Dubai, unseen and unheard.

Dubai Port at Jebel Ali, seen above, every minute of every day towering gantry cranes lift another container off the high-stacked decks of the ships alongside, lowers it to a waiting truck that delivers it to another part of the site, or transfers it from the unimaginably huge mother ships, which travel the world oceans, to the slightly less huge feeder ships that service the Gulf (Al-Shabaab pirates), the Indian trade and the Mediterranean. More than seven million containers are moved to Dubai UAE in the course of the year, a figure that grew last year, and is set to triple within the next six years, serving a market of two billion people.
