• al Qaeda magazine published a “Wanted: Dead or Alive” list


    So many questions. First, al Qaeda has a magazine called Inspire? Second, is there a masthead? Third, does anyone affiliated with this magazine dare post their contact information there?

    Plus, why would anyone read such a thing? Especially when they publish things like this:

    It says:

    “Wanted: Dead or Alive for Crimes Against Islam,” the page reads. The list includes: Molly Norris, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Flemming Rose, Morris Swadiq, Salman Rushdie, Girt Wilders [sic], Lars Vilks, Stephane Charbonnie, Carsten Luste, Terry Jones, and Kurt Westergaard.

    No further reason is provided to explain why these folks were singled out for the hit list, though many are notable critics of radical Islam.

    “Yes We Can,” the image reads. “A Bullet A Day Keeps the Infidel Away.”

    “Defend Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,” the image reads.

    I’m officially floored.
