The first American to be charged with treason since World War II urges his coreligionists to bleed the West dry economically and militarily. Gadahn’s best allies are the learned analysts in Washington who eagerly do just that, pouring out America’s blood and treasure to aid those who have vowed to destroy us in (among others) Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and now Syria.
“In Exclusive Interview In Inspire X, American Al-Qaeda Operative Adam Gadahn Tells ‘Governments Of The Crusader West’ To Withdraw From Islamic Lands; Says Arab Spring, Economic Crisis Signs Of Their Dwindling Power, Muslims’ Ascendancy,” from MEMRI, March 1:
On February 28, 2013, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released issue X of its English-language online magazine Inspire. The latest issue contains an “Inspire Exclusive” titled “To the Governments of the Crusader West” by U.S.-born Al-Qaeda operative Adam Gadahn….
“To The Government Of The Crusader West:
“Today, you have an excellent opportunity to begin to prove that you are serious when you talk about turning over a new leaf and changing Western policy towards the Islamic world, by pulling out your planes, tanks, and troops, calling off your proxies, agents, ‘jackals’ and ‘economic hit men,’ and [by] leaving the Muslims alone to rule themselves by themselves, free from the ‘global governance’ of your supranational organizations and institutions….
“Let us make it our priority during this stage to focus on direct engagement at home and abroad with America and its NATO partners, particularly France and Britain. The enemies’ economic and military hemorrhage must not stop until the day comes when the people of the West are forced to make a choice: either the continuation of the Crusade”¨ against the Muslims and the continuation of their backing of Israel, or the continuation of viable governments and basic public services. The recent “¨budget cuts and austerity measures in France and Britain, “¨and the $16+ trillion debt “¨crisis in America are signs that “¨that day isn’t far away (Allah”¨ willing), while the Arab uprisings show that the American “¨empire is at an unprecedented”¨stage of weakness and decline, so let’s continue to bleed the”¨head of unbelief dry, and let’s beware of all attempts to divert us from our strategic objective or draw us into any battles of lower priority, particularly in light of the new realities in the region.
“Finally, To Those Calling To Islam And Jihad In General, And Those Working In Jihadi Media, [And] On The Internet In Particular:
“This is your day, so rise to the challenge and become a part of history in the making. We mustn’t miss this golden opportunity to bring the message of tawheed and jihad to a region and a world emerging from under the dark shroud of dictatorships and police states, and we must make every effort to reach out to Muslims both through new media like Facebook and Twitter, as well as the traditional broadcast and print media preferred by the older generations; and we should fully acquaint ourselves with both the people to whom we are reaching out, as well as the methodology and cause to which we are inviting them, so that we are able to hone our methods, refine our techniques, and spread our message in an intelligent and educated fashion accessible to all sectors, sections, levels and factions of the ummah.
“And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds.”
