From the grave, al-Awlaki calls for bio-chem attacks on the U.S.

By Tim Lister and Paul Cruickshank

The editor and star contributor may be dead, but that hasn't prevented al Qaeda in Yemen from issuing the eighth and ninth editions of its online English-language magazine, Inspire.

The eighth edition of the high-color magazine includes the most detailed advice yet from radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki on launching attacks against Western countries.ย  In a five-page article entitled "Targeting the Populations of Countries at War With Muslims," al-Awlaki justifies the killing of women and children and the use of chemical and biological weapons in addition to bombings and gun attacks.

Al-Awlaki and the man widely believed to have been Inspire's editor, former North Carolina blogger Samir Khan, were both killed in a drone attack in September in Yemen. It's unclear why it's taken so long to publish their articles.

The influence of al-Awlaki through his writings in Inspire and elsewhere have become apparent in several terrorism cases in Europe and the United States,

Al-Awlaki says women and children should not be deliberately targeted, but if they are among "combatants," it is "allowed for Muslims to attack them."

"Muslims are allowed to target the populations of countries that are at war with Muslims by bombings or fire-arms attacks or other forms of attacks that inevitably lead to the deaths of non-combatants," al-Awlaki wrote.

The continuation of jihad, al-Awlaki wrote, took precedence over every other consideration - and gun attacks such as that by Pakistani militants against civilian targets in Mumbai in 2008 were legitimate. More than 150 people were killed in a three-day assault on hotels and other places in Mumbai. Jihad allowed the shooter "to shoot randomly at crowds," al-Awlaki added.

"The use of poisons of chemical and biological weapons against population centers is allowed and strongly recommended due to the effect on the enemy," al-Awlaki continued. He then quoted several religious scholars to justify such attacks, concluding:ย  "These statements of the scholars show that it is allowed to use poison or other methods of mass killing against the disbelievers who are at war with us."

There is no evidence that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula or any other part of the terror group has developed any sort of chemical or biological weapon capability.

Elsewhere, al-Awlaki talks about his life in America and the aftermath of 9/11.

"September 11 was a Tuesday. By Thursday the FBI were knocking on my door," he wrote.

"The questions revolved around the attacks. They visited me again but this time they were asking for cooperation which I made it clear that they shouldn't expect."

An article by Khan warns American Muslims that they will never be accepted as Americans and should understand that Islam and the United States are incompatible. And he praises the few mujahedeen who have left America. He is quoted in another article as saying that attacking the enemy in their backyard is one of the best ways to help the jihad.

Elsewhere in the magazine, a Dr. Khateer contributes advice on building remote detonation devices using a motorbike alarm and washing-machine timer.

There's also a lengthy piece accusing Pakistan's army of betraying Islamic principles and being at the service of the "Crusaders."

"The services of the Pakistani Army to the Crusaders are so enormous and so significant that without them the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan would have been impossible," writes the author, who is described as a former Pakistani soldier. He says the army's "senior officers should be targeted for assassination."

There are also effusive tributes to al Qaeda commanders killed in the past year during fighting in southern Yemen against government forces.

The ninth edition, whose title "Wining on the Ground" is misspelled, runs to 62 pages and includes tributes to al-Awlaki and Khan. The editors urge followers to post the issue on online forums to thwart any attempt by the FBI to bring down sites that host the magazine.

"To the disappointment of our enemies ... we are still publishing America's worst nightmare," says an editorial. It describes the magazine's aims as to inspire jihad in the English-speaking world and "to deliver to every inspired Muslim anywhere around the world the operational know-how of carrying out attacks from within the West."

In a section called 'Open Source Jihad," followers are urged to ignite wildfires in the United States, and there are instructions on how to create an "ember bomb."

Also in the ninth edition, an al Qaeda member describes how he met al-Awlaki while they were both held in prison in Yemen. Later, he writes, al-Awlaki left the Yemeni capital for a more remote area because of constant harassment by security forces. After al-Awlaki became a target of the United States for alleged involvement in terror plots, the author recalls speaking with al-Awlaki after he narrowly escaped one drone attack.

"This time eleven missiles missed its target but the next time, the first rocket may hit it," al-Awlaki is quoted as saying.

    It shows a reduction in capability most of things they mention are what is classified as a low intensity destabilization campaign. Dudes that do not want to increase a conflict will start with a low intensity destabilization campaign before increasing the tempo of the conflict to higher intensity levels. These guys are going in the reverse started out at a high intensity of level terrorism 9/11 and gradually reduced to a low intensity destabilization campaign.

    By all means we feed China so all it will do is cause food shortages and cause a revolution. The CIA will send you a box of matches. That is your nightmare even when we lose, we still win. The skill like all things in the dark arts is to make it look like an accident, because that one prevents war and two it shows capability, operational, skilled. That is where the fear comes from.

    How did it start instantaneous combustion, are yes but how did that start. Power line sparked, ah yes but how did that happen. Or you have to call the Nordic crew (hello chaps any blonde virgins about) for a human sacrifice to Thor, lighting, act of God, Thor, HAARP, coincidence.

    It is like how do all these car accidents happen, why is the road toll so high are they accidents or is like Jorge?.

    The Arab Spring is an example, that was an accident.

    As far as you guys I would give it up, go back to herding Goats or Camels, or start up a clown circus or something terrorists your not. All the ladies I speak to are waiting for the calendar, not the Magazine. 'The boys of al-Qaida' , is that what people to do raise cash. January man of the month this is Abdul going to the toilet in an olive grove hiding from the Griffen.

    Or release a sex take like the celebs, the story of a lonely goat herder torn between his love for his favorite goat and his camel. Start a TV series I married my cousin, in the last episode the kids find out they are all related. Give Vogue a call.

    You can quote atrocities and holy wars by other religions till you're BLUE. They've all had them, okay? Obviously, Islam is no exception. Quoting the atrocities of other faiths does NOT reduce the evil of the ones committed by Muslims – not by a hair. They quote to us the atrocities of Jews and Christians to invoke our own guilt, and to use as a smokescreen to hide their OWN atrocities. Now let's get down to the real difference.

    As a nonbeliever, I clearly see the atrocities of all religions, and find them all despicable. But Islam is more than that. It is anti-life.

    If your knee-jerk reflex is to deny that, to call me a liar or an "Islamophobe," you'd better do your homework first. I've studied Islam since 1994, and YOU haven't. Most Muslims don't, either; they just listen to the preaching.

    Islam is anti-civilization, profoundly anti-women and anti-life. It is entirely pro-male – but only the Muslim ones. And even there, it has no reverence, even for THEIR lives, since they must ALL do violent jihad at least once in their lives, and they must HOPE TO DIE in the fracas.

    Even its own believers' lives have no reverence in Islam, except to the extent that they use those lives to promote Islam and to die, in order to gain paradise. Islam promotes and reveres killing and death, even for its believers. Which is as sick as it gets.

    Islam has a prime directive. To conquer the whole world, by ANY MEANS at all. A good Muslim is required to live 24/7 for Islam; his family is a low second in priority. Which is why Muslims don't build much. When they DO build anything grand, it's done with slave labor or the labor of dhimmis.

    Remember, too, that ALL Muslims will lie to you about their faith. It's required. The only authoritative information about Islam's realities is in their holy books, and in the history after the prophet died.

    NEVER consult a Muslim or believe one. They MUST keep us ignorant of their real goals, to keep us VULNERABLE to them. Seems to be working for them, too.

    Islam never "flowered." They conquered Spain, then used their universities and libraries – and their SCHOLARS, to make the "advances." As overlords, the Muslims took credit for them. If Muslims HAD made those advances, why didn't they keep it up after they were kicked out of Europe? They haven't come close to "flowering" since then, have they?

    Muslims tend to forget that the Crusades were a response to Muslims, who'd been conquering right and left, forcing conversions, turning churches into mosques, making the citizens dhimmis (a kind of slave), and with no end in sight. They went after the Muslims, naturally, which is why the word "Crusader" is a particularly nasty one in Islam. But the Crusades were more a defensive measure than anything else. And again – even back then – the threat was ISLAM.

    Islam has ALWAYS been at war. ALWAYS killing infidels. ALWAYS conquering. That is the only job of the male Muslim; it's his life's work. To do less than his utmost makes him a bad Muslim, and that's a death warrant.

    Bin Laden was filthy rich, even after most of his money was locked up. Yet despite his multi-million dollar mansion, he lived in abject squalor. He even had several wives to keep the place spiffy for him – it didn't matter to him or anyone. Squalor proves you're working for Islam, not for yourself. So most Muslims live in squalor, except those with oil money. To try to live well reflects poorly – and suspiciously – on his piety. And lack of piety in Islam can get you killed.

    You don't need a religion to condemn Islam as inherent evil in the world. It is against EVERYTHING, even worse than the Republicans are! No other faith makes lying and deception a virtue. Islam does. No other faith tells people they must WANT to die for the faith. Islam does.

    It really is not a religion. It was their "prophet's" military and political policies to help him become a conqueror. To insure the fidelity and robot-like obedience, he wrapped his philosophy in a faith, like a burrito, to give it the power of "divine authority." It worked. And because he incorporated so many carrots that appeal to men, it has burgeoned ever since. It seems the world has a lot more pedophiles than we could ever have imagined, and since he liked sex from behind, he "undid" the prohibition against it from earlier faiths and made it righteous. Even manly!

    Thus Islam tends to have a powerful appeal to the inadequate males of this world. So just how many of them ARE there? Sheesh, we ARE in trouble.

    I am a Muslim, and I have read almost all the comments posted before me. I should start by saying that I am highly disappointed by the general concept the public have about Islam. The image that media is portraying about the Muslim clerics and Islam is absolutely wrong. The killings of innocent women and children is strictly prohibited in Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and harmony. After reading the posts, I infer that Islam is misunderstood as a religion of terrorism. This is mainly because it is the media that is portraying Islam as a religion of terrorism. A few people such as Al-Akawai "USE" the name of Islam to spread terrorism. But that is not at all what Islam teaches. I would really encourage the people who think Islam is a religion that promotes killing people, to just read through the Englsh translation of Quran as you do for the Bible or any other Holy book. You will find not a single verse in the Quran supports what the terrorists around the world are doing. These terrorists are NOT Muslims. A Muslim by definition is one by whose hands and tongue other Muslims are safe. Islam respect the rights of every human, either he be a Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jew irrespective of the creed colour or cast. Islam has many teachings that are common to other religions such as Christianity. So I would request all the people out there to STOP linking Islam with terrorism. Islam in no way supports the use of biological and chemical weapons for killing innocent people. Even roadside bombings or any other activity that kill innocent humans even if they are non muslims, is strictly prohibited in Islam. Please read through the Quran to completely understand how peace loving, humane and brotherly the teachings of Islam are. So that you may understand that the image portrayed by the Media around the world of Islam is not its true picture. I hope this post clarifies that what ever Al-Akawai said can not be the words of a Muslim.

      I've visited museums in Tunisia, walked along a beach of the Dead Sea in Jordan, shopped in open markets in Iraq and traveled to many different places in Kuwait; if Muslims were as violent as the media makes them to be, I'd be dead already. I am a white Irish American, so there is no concealing my identity when I travel abroad; everyone knows I am an American.

      It seems to be the radical Islamic terrorists who are making it a point to link terrorism and violence with Islam. Perhaps the unfavorable public opinion of Islam is not due so much to biased journalism, but the very actions of the terrorists themselves who incessantly spout radical Muslim religious dogma. Don't blame civilized society for your public relations problem until you get your house in order. If you act uncivilized, you will be perceived as uncivilized.

        Sean, Perhaps that because US actually arrests people who do harm to others, drug. If you leave a religion,commit rape, do drugs,are gay,steal,prostitution,infidelity(by woman)speak against the government–you are often killed, thus you dont need to be in prison awaiting trial or punishment.. Many countries are more lax on such crimes than even US, therefore of course you will have more imprisoned.Majority of people in any country or religion are generally good people.But islam does in fact have teachings in its religion from too many religious people who instill the belief that their religion is the only true one (which is arrogance and arrogance is supposedly wrong in Islam). They all make the statement they want to spread islam around the world. You cannot just call it a religion it is also a way of life. There is also immorality from Muslims at times, no different from any other religion, they just hide their indiscretions more because they are punished by family and other Muslims. Muslims should be held accountable for the actions of those in their own faith by trying to show them the correct path, that everyone is created equal, and you can still be a good person without a religion, and that the word infidel is dividing the world, because it implies you are better than everyone else. If you believe in God, most believe he created us all to be equals, and if you read Mohammads words, there are many sentences of inequality spoken. Many extremists have an Islamic Agenda. The Middle East is going in that direction of the fundamentalists and many of them seek to impose themselves on others and are already trying. So if you want to accuse people of Islamaphobia for not wanting to be a part of your agenda, then so be it. I think countries need to scale back on immigration from Muslims, because they are not just a religion but a political idealology that is pushing the buttons on government and their rights in countries which have their own laws and oppose sharia. Invite those with skills you need perhaps, but limiting a group that has those amongst them who are pushing their agendas so fervently which to not coincide with the laws of the country, is not fair to the people who already live there. Many fundamentalists Ive read or watched in interviews are very critical people and play the blame game alot. Its is rare that you see a Muslims admit that another Muslim is wrong, they will just say they are not a Muslim. There are many good Muslims in the world, I am sure, but they need to speak louder against t hose who are causing the impressions we get from the fundamentalists own mouths and interviews or comments(displayed by the media, not SAID by the media.)Muslims are very quick to blame the US,, Israel, other religions, oil, the media etc etc, but are not accepting enough responsibilities for the so called "wrong interpretations", hateful teachings or comments from other Muslims including some of the Imams of Islam. Dont hold people in reverence if they are teaching against non Muslims. Taqqyia(lying for Islam )is mentioned many times in Islam. God would not permit lying, he would tell us to be honest, respectful, kind, tolerant and use dialogue to solve our problems. But I dont see that going on in the Middle East. Israel could be the friend to Muslims, there hasnt been enough respectful dialogue to prove that Muslims intentions are to solve the problem fairly for both sides. Israel and Palestine have issues and thats all we hear from Muslims. You rarely hear them talk about all of the MAJOR problems many Muslims are causing in almost every country of the world. Its better to blame israel than to find fault with their own, and use the distraction of Israel so they dont have to talk about the trouble with the Muslim community. The rest of the world isnt fighting with Israel, they dont have problems with Jewish citizens. Who do you hear them complaining about mostly? SOME (many)Muslims trying to promote a caliphate. Try to make peace with Israel and quit being unfair to NON muslims then perhaps more of the world will believe that islam is in fact PEACEFUL. That hasnt been seen yet.

      Let's consider what you said, okay? The statements sound good, and they reflect what the free world WANTS to think, and which they hold onto with a death-grip because thinking of the reality is too horrible to encompass. (BTW, I am NOT a rabid Republican, but a staunch liberal – the threat of Islam in the world is too big to apply partisan politics to it, and both sides are doing it, and are both WRONG. Neither tolerance or violence are the solutions. THWARTING their goal of global conquest is our only hope to survive, and the free world has to do it in UNISON.

      You say you're a Muslim. If you really do believe what you said, you are probably a Western convert. Most of those don't read the Quran, and I doubt you yourself have done so. I HAVE. I've been studying Islam since 1994.

      The English versions are NOT what the real Quran says. You DO know that, don't you? Maybe not. In my studies, I've discovered that ALL of the English translations have been "sweetened up," so as not to offend too many Western sentiments. But even with that, there's enough to stand anyone's hair on end.

      Peace in Islam is ONLY for Muslims, as is tolerance. You know that. You also know you must lie to us infidels, and because it is applauded by Allah, you could probably even lie to a lie detector. You may think that nukes and genocides are against Islam. They ARE, when non-Muslims are doing it, but when Muslims do it, it's fine as paint.

      In Islam, where infidels are concerned, there ARE NO RULES. The Quran itself (even in English) is riddled with hate and malevolence, which is how I know you haven't fully studied it. I have pages of quotes from the Quran that prove this point more than amply, but I won't do everyone's homework for them.

      Tho I don't know Arabic, I have an example of how the text in the Quran was "edited" to gain Western converts. Here are two quotations from the Quran. One is from my downloaded copy. The other was quoted verbatim in English by an Afghani who'd been captured, and was ranting about his faith and his hate of us. He'd been asked what Islam's viewpoint was on prisoners of war. Here's what he said:

      "It is not fitting for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he has made a great slaughter in the land." [Quran 8:67]

      So I looked up that SAME Sura (verse) in my copy of the Quran. This is what it said:

      "The Prophet is not supposed to take any captives to strengthen his position on the earth. You want worldly gains but God wants the life hereafter for you. God is Majestic and All-wise (8:67)."

      Now, if YOU can think of that as merely an error of translation, you've got rocks in your head. Last time I looked, English DID have a word for "slaughter."

      If you are a Western convert, you should know that you are NOT a Muslim. The Muslims who converted you deliberately made you think Islam was tolerant and peaceful, so you may ACTUALLY believe what you wrote. THEY made you into a false Muslim, intentionally. And at some future date, when they have no further use for you, they can kill you. In a word, pal, you've been wazooed. Royally.

      Maybe you ought to do a little homework yourself. The preachings are NOT Islam, the holy texts are.

      And maybe some of the rest of you ought to do likewise. You CANNOT know anything for sure about Islam unless you read its holy texts. Media and governments have the oil bias, and Muslims lie. Even the sweetened up English versions of those texts ought to tell you enough – if you study them fully and carefully.

      So get busy!

      Dear sir: I have no problems with the many millions of peaceful Muslims in the world. In fact I try to facilitate conversations with those reasonable several I've come in contact with online.

      While I do not believe the majority of Muslims hate America, Jews or Christians, I do believe there is much too much radicalism in the mosques and madrassas in the US and the rest of the world.

      And in the US prison system, where radicalism breeds and festers, and now more recently, 'lone wolf' types like our buddy Major Hasan, who infamously murdered 13 young US soldiers and wounded 29 more at Fort Hood all while screaming Allahu Akhbar. (God is great)

      We're angry because we don't hear a huge uproar in your communities against terrorist acts. We expected outrage from you that never came after 09/11 from our Muslim societies and our Muslim 'friends' overseas. Instead, we witnessed celebrations that 'the great Satan' had been hurt. Why is it that thousands of people in Arab countries in particular celebrated the death of so many innocent people? This was not celebrated in Europe, or in any other place in the world as it was in Islamic countries.

      3000 innocent people were killed in that attack. And the fact is that most–not all–but most terror attacks committed or attempted against the US were done by Muslims.

      We're angry at the abuse women suffer in your societies. And the hatred we hear directed by high ranking Muslim officials towards anyone else not Muslim. These are unfortunate facts, but they are still facts.

      If you want to live in peace and harmony with us, part of that entails that you stand with us, against terrorists, Muslim or otherwise, and all other enemies of our State. And in a concrete way, providing intelligence to our law officials to act upon when you think you know of a violent act is going to occur.

      That's called being a good neighbor. When you live in the US, you live by our laws, not sharia or anything else. That's not negotiable.

      I won't get into the whole 'it's not in the Koran thing, I know how abrogation works, and that the more violent later chapters supersede the earlier more peaceful chapters in that book. And the fact is, what is said in Arabic is not said in English in most Arab lands.

      But that's a story for another day.

    Dear Terrorists,
    If you really want the US to leave the middle east do the following.

    Step 1: Take your gun and make sure it is armed and the safety is off.

    Step 2: Point the gun at your head.

    Step 3: Pull the trigger.

    Thats it! Simple! If the countries in the Middle East stop fighting eachother, threatening everyone, and the terrorists stop bothering us, we leave! It's amazing zomg! Our troops are there for a few reasons. Ensuring that the oil keeps flowing, people stop trying to kill everyone else, and Iran stops rattling its saber at Saudi Arabia, which sort of files into the first and second part of these three.

    Lastly we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with you extremeist nutjobs. Thanks for the time!

        I want to commend you for bringing decency to the discussion. My dearest of dear friends who I have known since our early childhood; joined the Marines together; fought in Vietnam together; were each others best man; love each other to this day, is a Tea Party member and I am Liberal. I know he is none of the things people on the left call him, and likewise he rejects what is said about from the right. The notion any one side has all the answers and loves America more, can only be held by people contemptuous of reason.

    One Pissed off Canadian Housewife

    Thought you might like to read this letter
    to the editor. Ever notice how some people
    just seem to know how to write a letter?

    This one surely does!

    This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how
    it also applies to the U.S.A. , U.K. And Australia .


    Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to
    her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady...

    "Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was
    it or was it not, started by Islamic people who
    brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001
    and have continually threatened to do so since?

    Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered
    that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from
    the capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

    And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were
    claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a
    nation they are fighting against in a brutal Insurgency.

    I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle
    East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief
    of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

    I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are
    sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head, while Berg
    screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents'
    in Afghanistan , come out and fight like men,
    instead of disrespecting their own religion by
    hiding in Mosques and behind women and children.

    I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow
    themselves up in search of Nirvana, care about the
    innocent children within range of their suicide Bombs.

    I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that
    their freedom of Speech on stories, is more important than
    the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting
    at home, to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a
    CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent
    terrorist to obtain information, know this:

    I don't care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the
    head when he is told not to move because he
    might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

    I don't care. Shoot him again.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:

    I don't care.

    And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes
    it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.'
    Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it.

    I don't care!!

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to
    all your E-mail Friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to
    the people responsible for this ridiculous behaviour!

    If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete
    button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't
    complain when more atrocities committed by radical
    Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:

    Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering, if
    during their life on earth, they made a difference in
    the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.

    I have another quote that I would like to
    share AND...I hope you forward All this.

    One last thought for the day:

    Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ

    2. The British Soldier.

    3. The Canadian Soldier.

    4. The US Soldier, and

    5. The Australian Soldier

    One died for your soul,
    the other four, for you and your children's Freedom.


    P.S. I don't care if other political types or other religious types are upset at Harper for saying radical Islamics are Canada's greatest threat because they are.

    Islam is the root of the problem. Muslim clerics, devout Muslims and Islamists are responsible for the violence, terrorism, hatred and discrimination around the world. These devil' worshipers transform ordinary people into irrational beasts capable of committing the worse atrocities without experiencing remorse or guilt. These guys are colluded with Muslim monarchs and leaders, thanks to their satanic Islamic religion, monarchs/leaders seized their countries wealth and natural resources (oil) entirely for themselves, they can have hundreds of concubines and all the sexual pleasures and exert absolute power over their people. In retribution to their allegiance , monarchs grant Islamic clerics well paid jobs such as judges, police, administrators, inquisitors, executioners, etc where they can impose and extend their diabolic Islamic system on their citizens and eventually around the world otherwise Satan can take away their privileges.

    Al Awliki is an American and probably a CIA asset pretending to be an extremist muslim in order to draw in real ones which can then be assassinated by drone strike or whatever. Al Awliki also "died" in a drone strike of which there is no evidence whatsoever. That he releases videos "from the grave" / past active retirement shouldn't surprise anyone.

All of these vidoes and writings that you claim to be "from the grave" were recorded/written at an earlier date. Once again educate yourself before you speak and read things from these extremists. They praise Awlaki and talk openly talk about and admit his death. Thank God that this man and others like him are dead.

    Al-Awlaki says women and children should not be deliberately targeted, but if they are among "combatants," it is "allowed for Muslims to attack them."
    I see. When the cowards hide among their women, children, & seniors, using them as human shields, and we accidentally kill a few in the crossfire, it is an outrage, a war against all Muslims, but it's OK to for them to kill everyone elses women and kids. It may be unavoidable & inevitable in a fast paced battle, but to actively make a policy to do it, is just a sign of how sick these terrorists are.

      What the terrorists are looking for is the second option for the western countries and for the world.

        It is impossible to come to peace with people who follow dogmatic rules of life of about 1200 years old, people that still haven't develop independent heathy and logic thinking. These people feel threatened because they are threatened by an evolution they cannot avoid. One can see this is true because the fundamentalists like to conserve a world one cannot conserve. It is like loving your child at the age of 6 and wishing it would stay 6 forever. These people regretably have no clear view and understanding of the laws of life and evolution of mankind. So they are infact threatened by a becoming future.

      Actually, Christians – in the name of the one True god – have perpetrated far more wars on Islam than vice versa. There are extremists/zealots in any religion (like al-awlakii). Those are the ones we should be concerned about. Your comments in application to all Moslems are about as accurate as saying the same about Christians or Jews.

        I'd say Christians and Muslims are far similar in their religious beliefs than any other religions. There was a "Prophet" who was chosen to spread the word of god and blah blah bla. One has Mohammed one has Jesus. And both religions are loosely based on supposed stories that were written over 2000 years ago. I'm not saying they aren't true but if you look at the facts and the stories of each relgion they are similar with minor twists. But Mohammed was born before Jesus.. O i can imagine so in the land of Narnia this would be believeable. I don't knock anyone for believing in relgion, I think in some ways it can be healthy and great for your children. But to believe that becoming a martyr like Jesus or all the Jihadists to confirm your beliefs is just hypocritical to what the meaning of relgion truly is. Christiants had the Crusades, and other wars, Muslims have the war on terror. It doesn't mean all muslims are terrorist and all terrorists are muslims but they aren't helping their image any by carrying on with their shennanigans.

    We've a strong conviction in our values. Our beliefs in democracy allows us to be opened to the world and put into place an accurate framework for peace and prosperity in our western countries and in the world.
    Openness is the cornerstone of our value. No one we'll be able to divide the USA because in God we trust for our future. And Because the USA is strong when it's United.
    The USA is ready to win anyking of war (Visible or Invisible, Conventional and none conventional) in this context of Globalization. We've no fear of any kind of threat. And we won't tolerate any threat on our Unity.
    On the behalf of the overwhelming importance of the increasing return to scale hypothetis, most of the wise leaders of the world have understood that strenghening and cooperating with the USA will have a positive impact on the world economy and well-being.
    In this transitional period , security is good for all and in particular for the countries of the Middle East.
    If Islam means peace then it could be embodied in the Christianism because Jesus died in order to promote the Eternal Peace.

    I can't help but notice how lightly the term "Collateral damage" is tossed around when killing innocent people in drone strikes and bombings in declared war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine etc. etc. Why is it then that when Al-Qaeda says collateral damage is a last resort and accepts it as inevitable that it is portrayed as extremism?

    The blatant bias is obvious.

      When Germany cooked Jews in ovens, it is a Holocaust (bad thing). When the USA cooked Japanese in Hiroshima, it is a good thing. So sometimes killing babies is good but sometimes killing babies is bad.

    "Muslims are allowed to target the populations of countries that are at war with Muslims by bombings or fire-arms attacks or other forms of attacks that inevitably lead to the deaths of non-combatants { that's women and children,}" al-Awlaki wrote. "

    Would any human being call this a religion ?? Islam is like a slab of excreta with a label of Peace

      As I read this I'm astonished to see so many similarities between what Al Awlaki has said and what the US and Israeli armies have been enforcing in their wars, i.e. killing civilians as collateral damage, using phosphorus and chemical bombs on civilians in Gaza, etc. I'm hopelessly thinking: are the U.S. and Israeli army decision-makers muslims who follow what Al Awlaki used to preach, or did is he advising on muslims to use the same tactics used by their enemies!!!

        when israel retaliates against rocket launchers who hide in civilian areas, intentionally using their own women and children as human shields, the rocket launchers whine and chant the muslim mantra: "woe is me, woe is me, we send one rocket and they send back three". war is hell and retaliation is a bitch. this is a bit different than intentionally targeting civilians, women and children who are not being used as shields by their own people. the difference is crucial and the failure to appreciate the difference is the result of the radical islamic credo of teaching hatred and that death is rewarded

      I agree with you on this one my friend. I am currently stationed in Afghanistan and I must say, if we are ever to win what ever it is we are fighting, we must adapt to the tactics that they are using. If they want to fight dirty I say we completely eradicate there ability to even think of such a thing. This is why I hate religion, people bend it to whatever means necessary to justify there beleifs or own interpretations. This country is going to go to shit once we turn things over to this country. Hell, you can already see it won't stand on its own now! With all of the articles about ANA turning on ally forces and what not, that is a small taste to the degree of which this nation can never function alone. I say we buff up and take care of our own nation, and say to hell with these 3rd world countries that view women as only good for reproducing, and men for pleasure and everything else. And to add to that, only about 20% of this country has the education skills above 3rd grade! leave this country as we found it, as a piece of shit.

      "HARD TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE???????" These radicals always have specifically targeted innocents as a means to drive their agendas. The American and other collation military's target these cowardly radicals (who hide amongst innocents) and sometimes innocents are hurt or killed (because these radicals hide among innocents). If these guys (and most of them are) would put on a uniform and stand up and fight like the soliders they proclaim to be I guarantee innocent civilian lives would be saved. The a**h**** target markets / public areas / hotels / World Trade Centers / buses not to fight the military of their enemy but to strike fear into the communities to push their own agendas. You dont see the American Military or any other military video taping beheadings and posting them and proclaiming them as successes. NO we do detain / question and use techniques to get info out of people but if you look at the prisoners in our prisons they have better lives and are treated better than they were in their HOME country and are treated far better and more humanly than American prisoners are. DONT SIT THERE and spew your garbage about who is the real enemy or how can you tell the difference – LETS REMEMBER AMERICA wouldnt be at full war in Iraq or Afghanistan right now if these cowardly "brothers of Islam" hadnt killed 3000 innocent people on 9/11.

      To the rest of you people without any set of ethical principles, let me walk you through the reasoning. In war, it is impossible to stop the killing of civilians. It is a lie that's it's unintentional, because it is inevitable. As soon as the decision is made to bring the victims of decades of war with another decade of war, the decision was made to kill innocent people. Every one of you who supports the War on Terror is complicit in their murder.

    The Koran is not much about Allah. It is about Mohamad, the guy who wrote it. Allah is invoked regularly but it is only lip service, it says over and over praise Allah now let me get to what matters, ME ME ME. Unhappily, the whole point of the book seems to be about obedience to a single individual. (Guess who.) That Allah is one god is justification for this one man rule on earth, and everything is about subverting your will to his, and HE will then put you in touch with Allah. This is sad. It IS why Islam is not compatible with Western, Democratic thinking. And it is sick, the delusion of solitary sun-struck people who were, simply put, taught to suppress their own thinking in deference to that special someone else. By the by, the Shiites are more idiotic than the Sunnis, for the Shiites believe a supreme deity would actually tie his fortunes on earth to a single human blood line. (Guess whose?) How un-supreme is that?

      ANY religion that goes zero tolerance shares the same traits as Al Awlaki's. It is also usually started by a bunch of people over-promoting their religion , same as Al Awlaki's. What made it worse is theological misleading teaching sets those men into radicalists (just the same as the concept of how the 'messenger' comes mroe importans and worshipped then the God himself).

      If everyone really live their live by a true understanding of their religion, there will no religion based violence and killings.

      What i basically means is that, people who provokes the use of violence and killings, they are the "infidels" that humanity (regardless of what religions) needs to condemned.

        onestarman.....thats kinda funny. Mohammed said the very same thing, in fact the quote is on the Saudi Arabian flag.
        "There is no god but God and Muhammad is the messenger of God". Seems like they're reading from the same script.

        I know, personally, only a handfull of Muslims here in the USA. Unless they are oscar worthy actors, they are happy to be here and love this country.
        Left theirs, or their parents did, because they wanted a normal, average life for their families. Not lives of uncertainty, poverty and violence.
        Crazy, because it's the same stories told by my Scotts Irish forparents to their kids, then to mine, then to me.

        Your comment would be all the better for proof.

        I've studied Islam for 17 years. The extremists are the RESULT. They're doing what their god told them to do.

        If you don't like that, it's because you're afraid of the reality. You need to know that denial won't make that horrific reality go away. It actually makes the reality of being conquered by Muslims all the more possible. Islam is NOT "just another religion." It is the worst threat humanity has ever faced – and it intends to be. Their god demands that they take over the world – total conquest, and by ANY means at all. It tells Muslims that only THEY are human, so killing any non-Muslim (even children) is an act of great piety.

        These "extremists" are following Islam, not working against it, as so many people want us to believe.

        The oil-based "VAST majority of Muslims are tolerant and peaceful" is a litany we hear over and over. They seem to think that quiescence is peaceable. It is NOT. Every Muslim chooses his own time, place and method of doing his personal jihading. The bulk of Muslims in the free world came there – in DROVES – to...wait.

        If you are ABLE to think that Muslims "yearn" for peace, democracy, rights and liberties, it's because you know nothing about Islam. You merely assume that EVERYONE wants those things. You may be right – except for Muslims.

        Islam is so utterly ALIEN that most people can't wrap their minds around it – and few dare to try. To Muslims, everything about democracy, rights and liberties is loathsome, obscene and blasphemous. Islam is the "inside-out" of democracy. It reveres strongman dictators. That's what their prophet wanted to be. He wouldn't actually WANT to be elected or have to respect anyone's rights, you know. He was a conqueror, with an amoral personality. And more, as you probably know. He "custom-made" Islam to serve his personal ambitions – and proclivities.

        The problem may seem to be the extremists, because they're so visible. It's easy to claim they're not being good Muslims, but where's the proof? Do you see Muslims clamoring against the protests in London that scream, "Islam will take over the world!" Or "Down with democracy," Or "Death to...(fill in the blanks)"? That VAST majority approves wholeheartedly of what the "extremists" are doing. When the call comes to take over the countries they're in, we'll be subjected to a mega-Glasgow. Have you forgotten Glasgow? DOCTORS, who'd been liked and respected for decades, suddenly turned into ravening jihadis. How'd you like to see that happen when ALL the Muslims currently in the free world decide to do it – all at once? Think they won't? Think they wouldn't DARE? They not only CAN do it, but they will succeed. A powerful military won't help us.

        The problem IS Islam. It needs no extremists, because it already IS that way. Do some homework.
