Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released on Monday the second issue of its English-language magazine called Inspire. The 74-page edition features an article by a 24 year-old former resident of North Carolina and New York City named Samir Khan.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) released excerpts from the interview on its website Monday. The cover page of the article, entitled “I Am Proud To Be a Traitor to America”, states that the article will tell “the story of the Muslim American jihadi Samir Khan. After working a few years in the jihad media sector in America, he packed his bags and left for Yemen to help the mujahidin. This is an account of how he happily became a traitor to America and why he chose to make such a decision.”
Some notable excerpts from Samir Khan’s story as quoted by both MEMRI and Fox News are: “I am a traitor to America because my religion requires me to be. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam.”…
