Al-Qaeda Magazine Urges Car Bombing in U.S.

March 21, 2014  | 

The latest issue of al-Qaida's Inspire magazine urges lone-wolf terrorists to detonate car bombs in New York City and includes a photo of Times Square, police officials told Newsday.

The spring edition of the Internet-based, Western-aimed propaganda magazine, which officials say inspired the Boston Marathon bombers, contains instructions on how to build larger, more powerful car bombs than used in the past.

"The new edition of Inspire has instructions on a new larger device, if I understand it correctly," NYPD Commissioner William Bratton said Wednesday at a Police Athletic League function. "And among the photos and the encouragement of where to attack there is a photo of Times Square, 47th and Broadway."

One section -- headlined "Car Bombs Inside America" -- encourages jihadists to plant bombs at large public gatherings such as sporting events and political rallies. America is listed as the primary target, but attacks on Great Britain, France and other "crusading" countries are also encouraged.

Obama sides with the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist org. That's a criminal activity. The Clowerd-Piven maneuver piling on massive debt to taxpayers and US Citizens is a Conspiracy between The Federal Reserve, Obama & George Soros. Don't be shocked if we find out Obama has shipped Arms and $ to Al-Qaeda too! Fast & Furious is just the tip of the Ice Berg!

You have got to be kidding Al-Qaida has their own magazine? Do they put out a swim suit issue too? I would think they have a listed address which would make it easy to find them and either give them a Gitmo vacation or a hellfire headline. As for the last blogger he is off his medication again. Extreme paranoia was the first hint.

We all know the Obama admin did provide weapons to the drug lords with Fast and furious, and they also armed The Muslim Brotherhood, this is no secret and is well known and only Fox news reported the whole story while the other new media hacks ignored it, and or glossed over it. This administration acting the way they do did this before the 1990's would be on trial. But todays clueless Internet generation just can't grasp the concept and dangers. Morons on facebook by the tens of millions support this stupidity without questioning the danger.

Has anyone noticed that even now that we know Fast and Furious was a violation of laws and yet not a single criminal appointee has been prosecuted.. If any of us did this they would lock us up and throw away the keys.

@Ima Leprechaun, I would have to agree with you on this one, but as far as the swim suit issue goes it would not be fun to see a women wearing a bee keeper outfit.

We need to hammer our elected officials with letters and emails to go after this administrations illegal activities. When I say 'we', I'm not just referring to those who read this magazine, I'm talking about everyone you know. Don't count on the major news networks to report any of this, they no longer report the news as it happens. They are all far left liberals who support our socialist president.

This is Crap! We have rules, guidelines and laws. Setup to manage what we can and cannot say or write. Just take a look at our school's. I never thought we'd ever, not be able to start our day with the Pledge of A ligeance. "This is still the USA"!!! Now we allow these Douche Bags(Terrorists) to have a Terrorism magazine in our Country.
