Al Qaeda urges lone wolves to target whites, to avoid ‘hate crime’ label
Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.
In an article first reported by The Foreign Desk, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) called for more self-directed Muslim terrorists to kill in America. But the article, titled “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” tells terrorists to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found” because if gays or Latinos appear to be the targets, “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”
Murdoc thought it would take someone specifically stating on the record during the crime that he was pledging his action to the war against enemies of Islam, but even that isn’t good enough.
Although Al Qaeda does not take credit for Mateen’s attack in the online article, it urges more “lone wolves” to take up arms. Jihadists should target “areas where the Anglo-Saxon community is generally concentrated,” it states. “This class of the American community is the majority and it is the one that is in the American leadership.”
Murdoc’s not sure. No matter who attacks who, no matter how loudly they declare their war, American the politicians and their media lapdogs will rush to blame conservative U.S. citizens who don’t conform to politically-correct dogma and those who want to own personal arms.
