Here’s a new tool of ISIS to lure in victims — the jihadists are going Craigslist.
Specifically, ISIS sent out a message in its latest magazine edition that advises would-be terrorists and terror group members, to use the Internet to full advantage to find victims.
And once lured, slit their throats, the Rumiyah magazine advised.
Here’s the story, from PJ Media:
“The Islamic State magazine that has published tutorials on vehicle, knife and arson attacks as a tool of lone jihad is now encouraging terrorists to acquire guns at shows and shops and take hostages not for ransom but ‘to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can.”‘
“The latest issue of Rumiyah magazine, distributed online in 10 languages including English, offers another installment of the ‘Just Terror Tactics’ series, praising lone jihadists including U.S. terrorists who have ‘set heroic examples with their operations.’
“The objective of taking hostages, would-be jihadists are told, is ‘not to hold large numbers of the kuffar hostage in order to negotiate one’s demands,’ but to sow 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.'”
Well, isn’t that special.
But the article goes on, against as PJ Media notes:
“‘The scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public, and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar [disbelievers] 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 instructs.
“Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen ‘superbly demonstrated this scenario’ of taking hostages simply to delay police while killing them ‘when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites.’
“Jihadists are told that Europeans should try to acquire guns in conflict zones or from underground dealers, and ‘much like its Crusader European counterparts, the UK faces a gun control dilemma as it feebly attempts to fend off the influx of weapons, but to no avail’ so attackers are advised to find guns ‘readily available for purchase on the streets of Britain.’
“In the United States, ‘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,’ ISIS states. ‘And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.’ …
“ISIS suggests luring targets by placing an ad at an unemployment center for a job Muslims would not take, then ‘subdue” each victim as they arrive at the interview site, even if that means renting a fake office, before murdering en masse.
“Another suggested lure is advertising a studio apartment for rent, small enough not ‘attract large families,’ and capture and kill the interested tenants. ‘It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students,’ ISIS adds.
“Jihadists are also encouraged to place some stuff 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.’
“‘It is likewise important to be realistic when advertising and not advertise something far below its valued price, as this can attract the attention of authorities searching for stolen goods or possibly attract other suspicions,’ the article states.”
