The Islamic State magazine has published another installment in their “Just Terror Tactics” series, offering would-be jihadists additional advice on how “to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can.”
The latest issue of Rumiyah magazine, distributed online in 10 languages including English, lauds lone jihadists and U.S. terrorists who have “set heroic examples with their operations.”
The tutorial states that the objective of taking hostages is “not to hold large numbers of the kuffar (disbelievers) hostage in order to negotiate one’s demands,” but to create terror with “the language of force, the language of killing, stabbing and slitting throats, chopping off heads, flattening them under trucks, and burning them alive, until they give the jizyah (tax) while they are in a state of humiliation.”
“The scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public, and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar who are present. Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response, as was outstandingly demonstrated by the mujahidin who carried out the Bataclan theatre massacre during the course of the blessed Paris raid,” the article notes.
The magazine claims that Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen “superbly demonstrated this scenario when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites.”
Would-be terrorists in the United States are advised to procure firearms, “anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales – by way of private dealers – with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license. And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.”
Another suggested tactic is to advertise an apartment for rent, small enough to not “attract large families,” and capture and kill the prospective tenants. “It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students,'” ISIS asserts.
Jihadists are also advised to advertise items for sale on “buy and sell websites such as Craigslist, Gumtree, eBay, the Loot, and others” and “specify that collection and payment is only available in person and that only cash is accepted. Also, the item being advertised should be something that requires the victim to enter one’s property.”
ISIS instructs jihadis employing such methods to allow time between arrivals and have “a room specifically reserved for the disposal of the bodies… for the obvious reason of not alerting those intended victims entering the property after them.
“One should not initiate his attack until the target has fully entered the property and is comfortable, so as to avoid any struggle and prevent the chance of him fleeing.” ISIS also contends that carrying out the attack under cover of a loud television and in busier daylight hours can help conceal victims’ screams.
“However, in order for the operation to gain wide publicity and more effectively plant terror into the hearts of the disbelievers, one can keep some of his victims alive and restrained, making for a more lengthy and drawn-out hostage scenario. One may then notify the authorities, explaining to them that he is a soldier of the Islamic State and informing them of what he has just done,” the article concludes, adding, “…The intention of this delay is therefore only to prolong the terror, as the ideal scenario is that they storm the location and he is killed as a shahid – inshallah – after having inflicted upon the kuffar a just massacre.”
