your not making sense!
war and politics are about sentiments by definition
Al-Shabab doesn't actively propagate propaganda. They make the occasional public statement, but they don't actively pander to anybody with different viewpoints to them.
How do you think they recruit members? As a matter of fact, how do you think the TFG recruits members? They're not fighting because they support their ideology, but because the few bucks they got tossed is better than sitting on the sidelines and not necessarily any more dangerous.
Damage control isn't even on Al-Shabab's radar. I doubt they or anybody else considers Shabab are political group either.
'ok make al shaabab is not interested in sentiments, it just sends the occasionally condolences to the families of victims, if you lucky you may if got a christmas card
