According to an NYPD official, Rebecca Weiner, director of intelligence analysis, the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, which begins August 25th, is on a wish list of terror targets in an al Qaeda magazine – Inspire. So are a lot of other locales. It’s what they do about four times a year, but it’s not to be taken lightly. They give detailed instructions on making bombs and encouragement to do it.
The Boston bombers had Inspire magazine on their computers and directions on how to make a bomb similar to the one they used to kill and maim people in Boston.
The latest information can be found in the Spring edition of the magazine, released in March.
Inspire magazine is teaching terrorist wannabes how to make bombs and where to set them off. Targets are in D.C., Virginia and New York.
The magazine calls for car bombings throughout the United States. They showed a picture of Times Square, seen below.
One article titled, Car Bombs Inside America, begins:
Inspire Magazine’s goal is to empower Muslim youth. And what is empowerment without being strong, powerful and intelligent? In this section, we give you strength, power and intelligence. Believe me, using car bombs gives you all that. It is absolutely simple. And we will make it simpler for you, biidhnillāh, so that every Muslim, who loves Allāh and His Messenger, and wants to accelerate Islam’s victory, becomes prepare to make, even if this is the first military material his eyes has set on.
They then go on to explain how to make car bombs with common, available materials.
Other targets mentioned in the U.S. are: D.C. and its 347,000 federal government buildings as well as restaurants on M Street and in Arlington and Alexandria; Virginia military bases; Chicago Sears Tower, a 108-story skyscraper and The Chicago Board of Trade Building; LA, home of Hollywood and finance.
They recommend hitting targets during election seasons and during Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
They also listed targets in the U.K. and France.
NYPD is confident they can keep it from happening in New York City though NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton is concerned about Lone Wolves. “…as it relates to this subject matter, terrorism, unfortunately all roads lead to New York City.”
Some other musings in the March edition of Inspire:
And to make America continue to be worried costs us nothing but a number of strikes here and there, i.e. Just like the way we defeated it by guerilla war in Somalia, Yemen, Irāq and Afghānistān, we should follow it with a war inside its own home. These different strikes could be done by one or a few brothers. Together with these strikes we should look out and wait for any chance to hit it with a big blow, even if we would have to wait for years.
In addition to that, we should inspire our Ummah to boycott America’s economy and its allies’. We should explain to them that every dollar spent on any American merchandise or that of its allies turns into a bullet, shrapnel or a projectile that will kill a Muslim in Palestine or Afghānistān, or turns into fuel for their tanks, planes and ships that occupy our lands.
Moreover, we should inspire our Ummah to stop using the Dollar and replace it with currencies of countries that do not take part in this aggression against us.
Also mentioned is Nidal Hassan who, according to the Obama administration, committed an act of workplace violence:
Before José Mante, there was Major Nidāl Hassan. He killed and injured more than sixty officers, associates in the largest military base, Fort Hood, Texas. His reasons and motives did not differ from those of José Mante and Imām Anwar Al-‘Awlaki.
He was devoted to perform the Imān obligation of fighting evil in the world and supporting Muslims around the globe.
Nidāl Hassan found out that his fellow officers and soldiers were perpetrating crimes against humanity in Afghānistān and Irāq.
I got a copy of emails exchanged between Imām Anwar and him. They were given to me by the late Imām Anwar himself from his computer. He explained to me how they communicated.
Nidāl Hassan contacted Imām Anwar from Fort Hood itself. He said in one of his emails, “Don’t you see what they do with our brothers in Palestine using American support? Why don’t we carry out similar actions, support our brothers like they support the Jews in Palestine?!” In another letter, he wrote: “Americans are carrying out inhumane operations, homicides, infringement of our brothers’ rights in Irāq and Afghānistān . . .”
This Iman brotherhood bond is the same bond that inspired José Mante.
On November 5, 2009, Nidal Hassan was the lone gunman who opened fired on a Military Base in Foot Hood, Texas, killing 13 American soldiers and wounding over 30 more. A stunned nation asked “How could this happen?”
The response from the White House was that this was workplace violence and not a terrorist attack.
As the details emerged from that fateful day, we learned that the sole suspect, Nidal Malik Hasan, was a radical Muslim with ties to known terrorists in Pakistan.
What is more mind-boggling than an attack at a military base on American soil, is the fact that Nidal Malki Hasan was on a terrorist watch list. The Joint Terrorism Task Force had been aware of email communications between Hasan and Yemen-based cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki, who was being monitored by the NSA as a security threat.
Nothing was done to warn anyone at Foot Hood about this Muslim terrorist living amongst our American soldiers on U.S. soil.
Even though the NSA knew Hasan was a radical Muslim, the White House refused to change their position and continued calling this brutal attack on Americans work place violence.
None of our brave wounded and murdered soldiers were ever acknowledged. Obama refused to do so. They didn’t receive their purple hearts or any of the benefits they were entitled to and which they earned with their blood.
Obama is now allowing a massive invasion on our southern border knowing that terrorist operatives are active in Mexico and Central and South America and knowing that terrorists have gotten in through the porous border.
The magazine rails against America, takes isolated problems to make it seem as if “life in America is unbearable.” One article has this from Sheikh Abū ‘Omar Al-Qurashi Al-Baghdādi of ISIS aka IS fame, who Obama doesn’t see as a threat to the U.S. apparently since he does nothing about his growing caliphate:
He said: “Erupt the volcano of anger. Burn the ground under the feet of the Jews and their supporters, wipe out their armies, destroy their vehicles, shoot down their planes, and prepare for them each and every ambush, ambush them in their homes, valleys and corners. Make your nights a cover (for you), change their days to fire. Grill their flesh by car bombs, cut off their limbs by mines and take off their hearts by inflicting panic with sniper.
The magazine calls for the killing of women and children if they are collateral damage.
Another bit of advice from ISIS or IS comes from Sudanese cleric Al-Jazouli who has a slightly harsher take – kill the women and children because they are part of them, meaning the adults who harm Iraq. The Prophet Muhammad, he claims, says that it is their duty to target America and its allies. Killing Americans gets each one 144 black-eyed virgins:
