Al Qaeda is now urging lone wolf terror attacks on America’s billionaires and industrialists. Borrowing a page from rival radical Islamists ISIS, Al Qaeda is urging American jihadists to attack U.S. market leaders to permanently damage the US. economy.
The notorious Al Qaeda magazine Inspire published an article urging attacks on U.S. market leaders starting with billionaires Bill Gates (Microsoft), Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway) and Michael Bloomberg (Bloomberg).
The article proceeded to list other terror targets in the form of internet entrepreneur Larry Ellison, industrialist brothers David and Charles Koch, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, federal reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, Walmart heir Jim Walton and several other misspelled names of prominent economists.
The horrid article began with a photo illustration depicting the “economic personalities” and “wealthy entrepreneurs” splattered with blood next to dripping guns. The article proceeded to urge attacks on these personalities with the sole purpose of derailing the “revival of the American economy.”
The article said that the only way these personalities would get off the list was if they withdrew all their money from U.S. banks, invested their wealth outside the U.S. and withdrew their support for Israel.
NBC news counter terrorism analyst Evan Kohlman revealed there was indeed a link between the magazine articles and recent lone wolf attacks in the west. Kohman said, "There is compelling evidence from the Boston Marathon bombings and other various thwarted terror plots that homegrown jihadists have specifically looked to the magazine for guidance on what targets to attack — and have taken that advice quite literally.”
Inspire magazine is published online by the Al Qaeda from the Arabian peninsula. It was once edited by U.S. raised jihadist Samir Khan, killed in a 2011 drone attack with cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
The magazine is best known for the article, "How To Make A Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom," providing a recipe for making explosives.
The recent listing of target U.S. economists is not the first one to be published. Inspire 13, back in Dec. 2014, also featured Bernanke and Gates.
Al Qaeda is borrowing a leaf from ISIS and placing more emphasis on lone wolf attacks in the U.S. Through the attacks, the terror organization seeks to permanently damage the U.S. economy and its people’s source of livelihood, something that must never happen.
