Al-Qaeda Calls for Car Bomb Attacks on American Cities, Targets Abroad

Muslim websites are promoting Inspire, a Magazine that encourages young Muslims to wage Jihad on US and UK cities. This is the same magazine that explained how to build pressure cooker bombs such as those used in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Al Qaeda is calling on terrorist affiliates to detonate car bombs in major U.S. cities, including New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, in the latest edition of its Inspire magazine.

Here is an example of the content:

Inspire Magazine

The magazine’s Spring 2014 issue urges jihadists to target heavily populated events such as political rallies and sporting events, both in the United States and abroad — including in Great Britain, France and other “crusading” countries.

“Choosing the place and time is a crucial factor to success in any operation,” the magazine reads. “Choose targets in your own country. You know the enemy better, you are within … The important thing is that you target people and not buildings.”

Would-be bombers also are urged to consider launching attacks during “election seasons” and between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Specific targets are also cited, including Chicago’s “Sears Tower” (now called the Willis Tower), and military bases in northern Virginia.

The piece also lists specific locations and times to attack European sites in England and France. These include the Bastille Military Day Parade on July 14 in Paris and soccer (football) stadiums during Premier League FA Cup Matches in the UK “when huge crowds leave the stadium and celebrate around the entrances and FA Cup matches.”

The issue also contains extremely detailed, “absolutely simple” instructions on how to build such a bomb and how to get away with planting them by using disguises that fit in, ie as a football supporter to bomb premier league games in the UK. Santa hats etc to make bombing cities during the holiday season.

“Disguise yourself during the operation, appear fat (add some clothes on you), change your complexion, be a ‘clone’, use any mask (believe me embarrassment is the last thing you will think about), wear a mask suitable for the festival, white beards on 25th Dec,” it reads. “All in all, be creative brother.”

 “My Muslim brother, before you start reading the instructions, remember that this type of operation, if prepared well and an appropriate target is chosen, and Allah decrees success for you, history will never forget it,” the magazine reads. “It will be recorded as a crushing defeat on the enemies of Islam.”

The piece includes interviews with islamist and Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011, and Samir Khan, who was killed in the same air strike. Khan served as editor and publisher of Inspire up to that point. A photo of New York City is shown at the end of the piece. 

The terrorist organization’s magazine has a letter from the editor that states:

Whenever Al-Qaeda is mentioned, the American citizens’ mind thinks of vest and car bombs.

Bearing in mind that none of these weapons has struck them post 9/11. So why would they relate Al-Qaeda to these bombs? Simply because they fear these weapons and have seen enough of their destructive power in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many Feisal Shahzads are residing inside America, and all they need is the knowledge of how to make car bombs. They are all yearning to fulfill their duty of Jihad.

 The American government was unable to protect its citizens from pressure cooker bombs in backpacks, I wonder if they are ready to stop car bombs!

Therefore, as our responsibility to the Muslim Ummah in general and Muslims living in America in particular, Inspire Magazine humbly presents to you a simple improvised home recipe of Shahzad’s car bomb.

And the good news is … you can prepare it in the kitchen of your mom too.

There are pages and pages dedicated to the ”Glorious Boston Bombings”. Here is an excerpt from this vile publication:

 “America is our first target, followed by United Kingdom, France and other Crusader countries.”

“As for the field target for the car-bomb, you have places flooded with individuals, e.g. sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gathering [sic]. The important thing is that you target people and not buildings.”

The final word is from the author of Inspire:

“Inspire Magazine’s goal is to empower Muslim youth, and what is empowerment without being strong, powerful, and intelligent? In this section, we give you strength, power and intelligence. Believe me, using car bombs gives you all that.”
