Al Qaeda Video: American Muslims Should Buy Guns and Kill

Jun 05, 2011 No Comments by

In a new video message released on the Internet Friday, American-born al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn calls on Muslims living in America to carry out deadly one-man terrorist acts using fully automatic weapons purchased at gun shows, and to target major institutions and public figures. 



”What are you waiting for?” asks Gadahn in English, and then adds that jihadis shouldn’t worry about getting caught, since so many have been released. “Over these past few years, I’ve seen the release of many, many Mujahideen whom I had never even dreamed would regain their freedom.” 



The two-part, two hour video appeared on jihadi websites Friday with images of jihadi leaders as well as snapshots of alleged underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan. Both Hasan and Abdulmutallab are charged with carrying out attacks inside the U.S. Called “Do Not Rely on Others, Take the Task Upon Yourself” and produced by al Qaeda’s media arm, al Sahab, the tape mixes Gadahn’s new message with clips from old videos of Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and other al Qaeda leaders praising one-man attacks. They call on jihadis in the West to carry out lone wolf operations.
