Muslim terror magazine “Inspire” in English

16 July 2010: What do detailed bomb making instructions, global climate change, Arizona’s immigration law and the American dollar as a reserve currency have in common? They are all mentioned in the first edition of the Yemen-based English language version of Inspire, a magazine published by the Muslim terrorist group Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) that was released last Sunday.  It is a 67-page glossy publication that is the product of Anwar al-Awlaki (a/k/a Anwar Nasser Abdulla Aulaqi), a U.S. born al Qaeda terrorist and the facilitator for at least two of the 9/11 hijackers. He is also the inspiration behind Fort Hood killer Nidal Malik Hassan, the guidance counselor to the attempted Christmas Day airline bomber, the thwarted Times Square bomber, and at least two other Islamic terrorists in the U.S.  It has been branded as the first magazine to be issued by al Qaeda in English.

A complete copy of the publication was obtained and carefully reviewed by investigators of the Northeast Intelligence Network, finding it to represent a new level of threat to the West and specifically, to the United States. Beyond the detailed bomb making instructions using household products and easily accessible components, the publication will likely serve its name well by effectively inspiring Muslims in the U.S. to launch small scale attacks inside our borders.

The magazine features columns ostensibly written by al Qaeda terrorist leaders Ayman al Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden, the latter who favorably references the Progressive’s party’s favorite author and American socialist Noam Chomsky on the evils of U.S. policies.

A section of the magazine is dedicated to promoting the assassination of those involved in the publication and dissemination of the cartoon depictions of Islam’s Mohammed, including Seattle resident Molly Norris. According to al-Awlaki, it is the duty of Muslims in the U.S. to seek out and kill anyone who has defamed Islam or Mohammed by printing or publishing such cartoons.

“This is a golden opportunity to have the honor of performing an act in the service of Islam greater than any form of jihad. Defending the Messenger of Allah is a greater cause than fighting for Palestine, Afghanistan or Iraq; it is greater than fighting for the protection of Muslim life, honor or wealth. This is the pinnacle of all deeds and is waiting for the likes of Muhammad bin Maslamah.” He added: “We will fight for him, we will instigate, we will bomb and we will assassinate, and may our mothers be bereaved of us if we do not rise in his defense.”

The authors also collectively appear to understand the politics and current divisiveness within the U.S., even taking a swipe at Arizona’s attempts to secure its southern border by the passage of a state law that will take effect at the end of this month.

Interestingly, in an article written by Anwar al-Awlaki titled “Shaykh Anwar’s Message to the American People and Muslims in the West, he complains about Barack Hussein Obama’s attempts to disassociate the murderous actions of Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood from the Muslim religion.

“[The Obama] administration, tried to portray the operation of brother Nidal Hassan, as an individual act of violence from an estranged individual. The administration practiced a control on the leak of information concerning the operation in order to cushion the reaction of the American public. Until this moment the administration is refusing to release the emails exchanged between myself and Nidal. And after the operation of our brother Umar al-Faruq the initial comments coming from the administration were looking the same: another attempt at covering up the truth.”

According to U.S. Representative Pete Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, the magazine “is proof positive that al-Qaeda and its affiliates have launched a direct appeal for Americans to launch small-scale attacks here at home.”

Based on our analysis, we certainly agree.

A final commentary concerning the man behind Inspire, an English language terrorist tool: Anwar al-Awlaki. Born in 1971 in New Mexico while his father was in the United States on a diplomatic posting from Yemen, al-Awlaki holds an engineering degree from Colorado State University. He also holds a Master’s degree in Education from San Diego State University. He attended George Washington University for a PhD in Human Resource Development on a scholarship provided by the Ministry of Education in Yemen. He fraudulently received $20,000 in scholarship money from a U.S. government program for his schooling in Fort Collins, Colorado by misrepresenting himself as an international student.

From 1996-2000, he was the Iman at the Rabat mosque in San Diego, California, which was the “spiritual” home to two of the 9/11 hijackers. While in San Diego, he was twice arrested for soliciting prostitutes in August 1996 and April 1997. Previously, he had been in contact with an associate of “blind sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, the terror leader whose followers were convicted of the 1993 bombing attack of the World Trade Center. He had direct ties to the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia. The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center has been described in official U.S. reports (Traveler Enforcement Compliance System [TECS] reports) as having been “under numerous investigations for financing and [providing] aid and comfort to bad [organizations] and members, and as “a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in [the] U.S.”

About a week after the attacks of 9/11, al-Awlaki was in the hands of investigators, being questioned about his terror ties. A warrant for his arrest was issued in 2002, and investigators had him in custody at JFK Airport that October.  In other words, we had Anwar al-Awlaki, and could have prevented him from his facilitation of terror. The magazine Inspire might never have been published. More importantly, many American citizens might still be alive.

At the direction of David M. Gaouette, a former assistant U.S. attorney in Colorado in 2002, the warrant was pulled, most likely at the direction of the former administration or the Department of Justice. Investigation reveals that at the time al-Awlaki was about to be arrested, he was reportedly working at the Saudi Embassy under the protection of then Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar (bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud), husband of Princess Haifa bint Faisal. Haifa bint Faisal indirectly funded at least two of the 9/11 hijackers.

In 2008, David M. Gaouette was appointed by the Obama administration to the position of U.S. Attorney in Denver within the Holder Justice Department. Prince Bandar was elevated to the position of Secretary-General of the National Security Council in Saudi Arabia. And Anwar al-Awlaki is now publishing English language terrorist magazines from Yemen.
