How many American Muslims do you think will listen?

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, as 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.

  • Think that most American Muslims aren't going to even know about this video.... I think most just want to be normal citizens without being ridiculed at ever turn. However, I am sure, there are some that wil, try, and God willing, will fail.

  • Nice! Is it time to start worrying about the neighbors? Personally I would like to hear American Muslims LOUDLY condemn things like this...instead of just complaining they are being profiled or stereotyped.

    Me four ~ but I refuse to hold my breath waiting for that to happen. The very fact that they don't/won't is WHY so many are regarded with suspicion.

  • I agree with all who said that there needs to be an outcry against this from "mainstream" American Muslims.

  • – collapse
    Idiots of all religions buy guns at gun shows and have websites encouraging their members to be ready to rebel and eliminate the bad guys. Muslims who are normal law-abiding citizens do not approve. Christians and Jews and Mormons ETC who are law-abding citizens object when any members of their religion buy guns at gun shows (and they do) to gang up and plan to act illegally. And you know they do.Its not just Muslims.

    Except that Christians, Jews and Mormons don't make videos on terrorist websites calling for "lone wolf" attacks on non-believers. So your "all religions breed violence" crap doesn't work here.

  • I must have missed the Bishop's call for Catholics to buy weapons and murder their neighbors. I go to church every Sunday too!
