Yes, another issue of al-Qaeda’s “mad” magazine has come out. No funny fold-ins, but plenty from the Usual Gang of Idiots.
Inspire is an ironic title, given its frequent fixation with jihad “martyrdom” and murder, but on the other hand, Expire might be a little too much truth in advertising. “Former Charlotte man publishes 5th edition of Al-Qaeda online magazine,” by Molly Grantham for WBTV, March 31:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – The 5th and latest edition of Al-Qaeda’s English-speaking online magazine was published Tuesday. “Inspire” is created in Yemen. Experts say it’s meant to recruit Westerners to terrorism.
Samir Khan — a former Charlotte 20-something-year-old — is one of the editors. Khan used to live in north Charlotte with his parents. WBTV approached him one time to ask about his Al-Qaeda connections. He later fled to the Middle East.
In this 70-page issue, Khan writes one article.
Looks like Imam Potrzebie’s submission was snubbed again. Maybe next issue.
It’s not as violent as past articles he’s authored where he has written that he’s proud to be an American traitor, a devout Al-Qaeda follower and wished death and destruction to America. In this article he focuses on Allah.
“It appears in Islamic tradition that tests from Allah are a sign of Allah’s love,” he writes.
The most eyebrow-raising article in this issue is written by another former American, Anwar Al-Awlaki. It’s called “The Tsunami of Change”.
Al-Awlaki basically rewrites history to say Islamic extremists are taking over the world, while America is getting spread thin and “bamboozling” nations and leaders.
He uses Hosni Mubarak as an example.
“[Mubarak] has stood firmly in the face of popular opposition from the entire Muslim world when he continued with the peace process with Israel,” Al-Awlaki writes. “His support for the American invasion of Iraq in the first Gulf War was indispensable for America. He persecuted the Islamists in his country, filled the prisons, tortured, and killed, all for the sake of America. He did the dirty job for the Americans. In spite of that, how did the Americans treat him at his moment of need? They trashed him. He was conned by America. He was tricked, swindled, cheated or as Malcolm would have liked to say: He’s been bamboozled. America duped him and then dumped him.”
Al-Awlaki also discusses Obama’s response to Egypt and Libya and how the “wave of change” is coming.
Terrorism experts and politicians alike have told us for years “Inspire” is just a big recruiting technique, whose main goal is to get others to convert to Al-Qaeda.
