They could be living in the United States. If so, no doubt the overwhelming majority of peaceful, Sharia-abjuring Muslims in the United States will soon turn them in to authorities. “Web post urges jihadists to attack Alaska pipeline: Bullets or Explosives: Nameless author claims to be acting on al-Qaida directives,” from the Anchorage Daily News, with thanks to the Alaskan:
A recent posting on a Web site purportedly affiliated with al-Qaida urges attacks against the trans-Alaska oil pipeline and Valdez tanker dock, calling on jihadists to either shower the pipe with bullets or hide and detonate explosives along its length.
The unknown author encourages small cells of four or five mujahedeen, or Muslim guerrillas, living in the United States or in Canada or Mexico to mount the attacks.
The 10-page posting includes numerous links to Web sites providing maps and other basic information about the pipeline.
Attacking oil and gas targets in the United States and other countries is key to bringing down the economy of the “American devils,” the author writes, saying the message was posted in response to calls from Osama bin Laden and his top al-Qaida deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri.
The Arabic posting was discovered and translated in late December by the SITE Institute, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit organization that tracks international terrorists.
