Al Qaeda Magazine Calls for Firebomb Campaign in U.S.
ABC News reports: “The men who launched al Qaeda’s English-language magazine may have died in a U.S. missile strike last fall, but Inspire magazine lives on without them — and continues to promote jihadi attacks on Western targets, offering detailed advice on how to start huge forest fires in America with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs.
Two new issues of Inspire magazine have surfaced on jihadi forums, the first since radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and chief Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula propagandist Samir Khan were killed by missiles from a U.S. drone over Yemen on September 30, 2011. The magazines eulogize Awlaki and Khan as the spirit and the tongue of Inspire respectively, but deny that their deaths will stop the magazine or jihad.
The second of the two issues seems to have been prepared after Khan and Awlaki’s deaths. To the disappointment of our enemies, says one of the articles, 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. ” (Al-Qaeda is continuing the magazine al-Awlaki, killed by a drone bomb, started. In a recent article this Islamic murderer suggested to the young Muslims the purchasing of trucks, mounted with blades to drive through the streets of America and killing as many as possible. Now other leaders in Islam are promoting the “Inspire” magazine and promoting the above headline across the USA Matthew 24:37; Genesis 6:11. See the next three reports.)

NYC Subway Bombing Plotter Found Guilty
Voice of America News reports: “A federal jury in New York has found Adis Medunjanin, a Bosnian-born U.S. citizen, guilty on all nine terrorism counts in an abortive bombing plot in 2009. Prosecutors argued that Medunjanin, 28, was fully committed to the plot with two friends to detonate suicide bombs in crowded New York subways. Medunjanins defense lawyers said their client had renounced involvement.
The defense attorneys argued that Medunjanin wanted only to defend Muslims when he traveled to Pakistan in 2008 with former high school classmates Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, intending to fight U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The three ended up instead at an al-Qaida training camp where they were asked to carry out a bombing plot in the U.S..
Zazi and Ahmedzay, both of Afghan descent, pleaded guilty and took the stand against their friend in exchange for possible leniency in sentencing. They testified that Medunjanin suggested specific subway stations and proposed the attacks be timed for Ramadan, on September 11, 2009 ” (This unholy trio, according to all reports I studied planned for a gigantic bombardment on NYC subway stations that would have a death count superseding 9/11. Please study Luke 21:9, 27, 28, 31, and 32 in this order. See also the next report.)
