ABC News is reporting that Al Qaeda’s English-language, online magazine Inspire has published a guide on how to start widespread forest fires with timed explosives. This comes after American-born Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan — the men who launched the magazine — were killed in a U.S. missile strike last fall.
ABC News’ website offers a few glimpses at what’s in the newest issue of the magazine:
To the disappointment of our enemies, issue 9 of Inspire magazine is out against all odds … The Zionists and the Crusaders thought that the magazine was gone with the martyrdom of Shaykh Anwar and brother Samir. Yet again, they have failed to come to terms with the fact that the Muslim ummah is the most fertile and most generous mother that gives birth to thousands and thousands of the likes of Shaykh Anwar and brother Samir.
Issue 9 also includes this tidbit in an article titled “It Is of Your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb:”
In America, there are more houses built in the [countryside] than in the cities.It is difficult to choose a better place [than] in the valleys of Montana.
As ABC News’ chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross reported on Good Morning America Thursday, experts say the information given in the magazine is “precise and troubling.” The magazine, he added, also urges its readers to purchase handguns to carry about assassination plots.
