The online Al Qaeda magazine Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem is providing “the recipe” of how-to articles on making car bombs and lists several suggested terror targets in the United States, encouraging jihadi recruits to carry out lone-wolf attacks in the West.
The list of targets includes crowded venues such as Las Vegas casinos, New York’s Times Square, and military colleges(the Georgia Military College and the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs in particular). The list also values targets such as oil tankers and passenger trains. The defense contractor General Atomics in San Diego was also singled out for attack. The terror publication implies that an attack is imminent.
The “recipe” provides a shopping list of ingredients and supplies needed to build explosives and suggests “this recipe gives you the ability to make a car bomb even in countries with tight security and surveillance.” The 9 page spread titled How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, details a do-it-yourself complete with illustrations.
“My Muslim brother, before you start reading the instructions, remember that this type of operation if prepared well and an appropriate target is chosen and Allah decrees success for you, history will never forget it. It will be recorded as a crushing defeat on the enemies of Islam,” the article says.
The list of targets also include destinations in Britain and Israel.
This “recipe” and target list comes as U.S. intelligence investigates the increased chances of a terror attack on American soil by Islāmic State(ISIS) militants. Reports suggest Al Qaeda is becoming envious of the headlines and attention the Islāmic State in Iraq and Syria is receiving.
House Homeland Security Committee member Rep. Peter King (R-NY) gave a grim warning to Americans about the threat:
“The American people have to realize that this is not a game we’re playing. We have an enemy that will spend every available moment trying to kill us.”
On Wednesday, a second American was reportedly killed fighting with ISIS. The man was identified as Abdirahmaan Muhumed of Minneapolis, which is a hot spot for the domestic radicalization of homegrown Islāmic Jihadists.
“There were a number of young Muslim men fighting overseas and the local leaders were covering up for it,” King continued. “This is something that’s very real. Over 100 Americans are fighting in Syria with Al Qaeda-affiliated groups.”

But the news for Americans isn’t all bad. We’re still considered the most heavily armed society on earth. Unfortunately, the types of attacks being plotted against us are very difficult to defend against with traditional firepower – especially considering that our enemy now hides behind a veil of political correctness fostered heavily by the Obama administration which protects them from being subjected to the scrutiny needed to find and remove them from our society.
Until the federal government gets serious about removing the blight of Islam, which would include NOT funding radicalism in other parts of the world as they are currently doing – American citizens will continue to live in a constant state of peril.
Prudence is strongly urged for all American citizens residing in the Homeland, especially in crowded venues and even places of religious worship.
