Africa – Where Counter-Terrorism and Modernization Meet

One more fascinating/outstanding effort by the new Kansas State Dragon Team. This time we researched the major powers’ use of Drones on bicoastal AOs in Africa. Many interesting conclusions and lots of resources involved. The false flag is counter-terrorism. The real agenda is resources: gold, diamonds, cotton. China continues it “Take and Talk strategy” in Africa and the Spratly Islands back in its home territory of the South China Seas.

We next intend to look at China’s interference with India and Pakistan. The next war will be by Drone proxy – as predicted. Too much UAS  investment by so many big players to leave them dormant.   Or it might be very subtle like disruption of GPS communications or replay of navigation bridge signals on US  naval assets.

Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Certification

This course is highly specialized following intelligence community tradecraft. If you want purely technical, then this is not the course for you. If you want tradecraft that lays the foundation for a solid program, education that creates a lasting impact, then this is the course for you.

Your enemies scour blogs, forums, chat rooms and personal websites to piece together information that used to harm the government and commercial organizations. Learning about cyber intelligence, OSINT, and Cyber-OPSEC effectively equips students with the tools to gather data points, transform these data points into actionable intelligence that prevents target attacks.

The course includes:

CYBINT1 – Collection Methods and Techniques, Collection Planning, PIRs, Collection Process Flow, Collection Tools and Targeting, Alignment with Hunt and Detect Needs, Ties to CSIRT, TTPs, IoCs, Threat Intelligence, Open Source Intelligence, All-Source Intelligence, Standard Glossary and Taxonomy – (Case Study 1)

CYBINT2 – Organization, Production, and Structured Analytic Techniques, Use of Techniques, Production Management, Critical Thinking, Process Flow, Metrics, Intake forms, and templates – (Case Study 2)

CYBINT4 – Table Top Exercises (TTXs), Identifying Your Consumers, Stakeholder Identification, and Analysis, Standing Orders from Leadership, Analytic Writing, BLUF, AIMS, Types of Reports, Product Line Mapping / Report Serialization, and Dissemination, Cyber and Threat Intelligence Program Strategic Plan, Goals, Objectives. Case Study Presentations

Lecture, Hands-on, Apprenticeship, in class exercises (3 Live Case Studies), student presentations, analytic products, templates, course material—40 CPEs (5-days – 40 hours)

All Case Studies use all methods, techniques, and tools referenced in the course material. The Case Studies used are straight from the headlines giving students real world experience during the class.

Cyber Counterintelligence http://www.planetreg.com/CounterIntel

This course presents the student with foundational concepts and processes in the discipline of cyber counterintelligence with a focus on cyber counterintelligence missions, defensive counterintelligence, offensive counterintelligence, and counterespionage as these realms apply to traditional tradecraft, and how they are or will evolve into the cyber domain. By starting with traditional counterintelligence and progressing to cyber counterintelligence, the student will develop an appreciation for collection efforts, exploitation of potential threats, insider concerns, and the risks and benefits of counterintelligence.

With the expanding importance on the comprehensive and timely need for intelligence for nations as well as businesses, the student will explore the essential elements that make up the intelligence cycle with a focus on how these pivotal points are exploited. As part of this class, the exploration of the continued importance of critical thinking as well as out-of¬the-box analysis will be heavily leveraged to improve the critical-thinking skills of the students.  As cyber topics continue to evolve, the increased importance of cyber intelligence is growing and as such the protection of our intelligence cycles will expand as well; emphasizing the growing need to ensure our processes are not compromised in a cyber-dominated landscape.  Cyber counterintelligence is one aspect and possibly one of the most crucial topics at the core of protecting our collection efforts. The potential for active defense or offensive cyber counterintelligence operations will be covered. The course will rely heavily on individual research and group discussion to explore the world of cyber counterintelligence, and where applicable, make use of the student’s ability to do independent thinking and analysis of in-class problems assigned through weekly discussion threads.

Target-Centric Open Source Intelligence

This course focuses on open source intelligence and adversaries while creating online personas to assist in data collection and information extraction. This introductory course examines open source intelligence collection as well as the availability and use of OSINT tools. Students will be able to understand the use methods of only anonymity, the fundamentals behind cyber persona development, enrollment in various social media sites and applications, and how these current methods can be employed in their organizations to assist in cyber operational security, their defense against adversaries, and passive data collection.  The establishment of cyber personas takes patience and time in order to create a credible resource. Parallel activities occur through the outline above. Treadstone 71 maintains separation from the client as required maintaining confidentiality of methods and processes. Sitreps and current intelligence may redirect activities. The intent is to establish a program of cyber and open source intelligence that creates data streams for analysis. Data streams take time to develop in order to establish links, trends, tendencies and eventually, anticipatory and predictive analysis. The desire is to move from a detective approach to one that is preventive while moving too predictive.

Adversaries scour blogs, forums, chat rooms and personal websites to piece together information that used to harm the government and commercial organizations. Learning about cyber intelligence, OSINT, and Cyber-OPSEC effectively equips students with the tools to gather data points, transform these data points into actionable intelligence that prevents target attacks. Students will learn methods to create and manage personas while passively gathering information leading to cyber street credentials.

Daesh – ISIS, Extremist Islamists – Jihadis – In their own words. Recruiting your teens

Much has been said about the whys and hows of extremist recruitment. Reports, documents, opinions, videos and more suppose to know their methods. The following link is one such site: https://sites.google.com/site/jihadismstudiesnet/jihadism-studies-at-ffi/radicalisation-and-recruitment

(NOTE: Follow the IrariReport on Twitter – @IrariReport – IrariReport.com Check out Ira Winkler and Araceli Treu Gomes)

Episode 1 – ISIS Recruiting Techniques on Social Media and Offline

The below information is taken directly from their handbook on recruitment. The information defines their step-by-step approach to targeting, engaging and building relationships in a measured and surveyed method to recruitment.  For the detail on recruitment steps, read through or scroll to the bottom to access the PDF.

A graded, practical program for recruiting via individual da’wa.

Dedication

To leaders and scholars of Jihad in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Algeria, Somalia, Chechnya, and everywhere. To the next Salafi-Jihadi generation in Palestine, Jordan, Libya, Egypt, Islamic Morocco (Morocco, Algeria, and Tunis), and the Arabian Peninsula.

To the Islamic State of Iraq, the Islamic State of Khorasan, and the Islamic State of Chechnya. To souls of the martyrs of the jihadi groups throughout history

To Muslim prisoners in the jails of the disbelievers and the arrogant Tawagheet                                                                                  .

To Wafa Constantine, Sabrina Al Janabi, and the girl of Mahmoudiya, and to all of our sisters whom we disappointed by our laziness of not joining the Caravan (of Jihad).

To the internet Mujahideen and the media Jihadi knights

Preface

In the Name of Allah and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.

A lot of brothers – and (at one time) I fell into this group – consider the idea of Da’wa to be that candidates who merely listen to a jihadi cassette or a motivating lecture, etc. will suddenly stand up and shout out or say with motivation, ‘We want to be a troop and go to fight against America!’, without considering the gradual stages that the candidate must pass through. And also, he (the Da’ee) tends to be careless with security that is needed.

Many times we speak to a person who is not fundamentally qualified to work with us (to become a Mujahid). And many times we avoid a person who is qualified and can convert (to become a Mujahid). However, they are among us, but we think that Allah (SWT) doesn’t want good for these people.

For this reason, we present this humble book to: support our brothers, ensure their safety, contribute to the ‘Ghuraba’ (strangers), support the one who feels lonely, and to create a source of ideas for the Mujahideen.

We have created a graded practical program for recruiting via a method of individual da’wa which has some advantages.

So don’t pass through one stage to another without achieving the goals of the previous stage, or without the candidate having taken a step forward in the direction of the path of the blessed jihad.

You should know this book was organized to be suitable for Islamic societies which are similar to each other, (i.e. Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Libya, etc.), especially those societies who are not directly occupied by the Crusaders, and have not opened the gate of Jihad yet. Also, we can use this book in the West for the same purpose.

My Mujahid Brother, you have to adapt or develop some things in this book to make it suitable for your da’wa. But essentially, all of the basic principles of da’wa can be used everywhere, taking gradual steps is a condition of individual da’wa. And these gradual steps add an excellent feature of security.

And I want to mention that I published this book in a hurry, and I should have taken more time to prepare it and to collect the speech of the leaders of Jihad and the scholars. And I should have written some articles about some points which needed commenting and suggestions, etc.  But, in my opinion, I was looking to complete this book before Ramadan, or on the first of Ramadan so that it can be used by the brothers during Ramadan so that they can benefit from it. This will allow them to be active in inviting the people to the path of Tawheed and Jihad through the use of individual da’wa. This individual da’wa will be easy and safe by the Protection of Al Mawla (Allah). So we know that Ramadan is the time of obedience and during this time the heart of the servants of Allah are close to Allah. Also at the end of every Ramadan we receive a new group who are repentant and leave the path of Shaytan to the Path of Ar-Rahman. Usually the shayateen of the humans and jinns take these people (who have newly repented) or the people who we think didn’t take the Path of Ar-Rahman, and the results would be that the people who follow the path of Islamic monotheism lose one from their group because of their ill-planning and because they failed to have a plan for recruiting. Because I had to rush to complete this book, I was unable to use any references, especially the book called “Da’wat Al Muqawamah Al Islamiya Al Alamiya” (The Global Islamic Resistance Call). So I had to write from my memory due to this specific situation that prevented me from using any references at that time and also prevented me from proof reading

I ask Allah (SWT) to help me publish another edition before the next Ramadan 1430AH, which will be better than the first issue.

I hope that Allah will make this program the first seed of activation and service of the book “Da’wat Al Muqawamah Al Islamiya AlAlamiya” (The Global Islamic Resistance Call). I also hope that it will be the connection between the general populace and Jihadi work by using a curriculum of the book above. I ask Allah to accept the invocation of Sheikh Abu Mus’ab Al-Suri (which was to make us part of his men). I also ask Allah to make it easy for us to prepare. I also ask Allah to prepare us by His Hand and under His Eyes. I ask Allah to release Sheikh Abu Mus’ab Al-Suri and all the Muslim prisoners.

In conclusion, my dear brother, if you find something good in this program, then it was from Allah. And if you find something other than that, then it was from myself and the shaytan. I ask any brother who reads this book and finds benefit to make a sincere du’a for me in my absence. If he doesn’t find any benefit, then I ask him to ask Allah to forgive me, my parents, and all the believers. General notes about the program:

-If I mention a specific period for a specific stage, then I mean an estimated period. It may be increased or decreased according to the needs of the one who receives the da’wa (the candidate). So the first priority is to fulfill the goals of this stage, not just to finish the stage.

-This graded program is tailored for the people who are not very religious. However, the religious people must be taken through the first and second stage in order for the da’ee (caller) to feel tranquil and sure about them. After this, the candidate can be taken through the stage of iman wakening (stage three) and he will pass through this stage faster than the others. You must know that this stage is continuous. You should take precautions against the religious people whom you invite, because maybe they will reject the da’wa and end up being the reason for our defeat.

-The complete jihadi Islamic education doesn’t stop with the convincing of the candidate, nor does it stop with the jihadi work. The jihadi Islamic education must accompany the Muslim for the rest of his life.

-You should know, my dear brother, the aim of the program is to invite people to the Path of Allah and the path of truth. In case something causes the program to fail, then it was sufficient that you took that person from darkness to light. And you have done the job of the prophets and messengers. There is no doubt that it is more beneficial for you than a red camel, and you are taking a step in the Path of Allah. In addition, jihad is obligatory and also a tremendous blessing from Allah because maybe the da’wa opens the Door of Acceptance to Allah, which will be a reason for Him to be satisfied with you. And (in fact, the reason for Him to be satisfied with you) is Jihad in the Path of Allah.

Important Advice before Starting the Work

-I advise the brother to read the whole program before starting the (recruiting) work, and this reading will not take a lot of time. Reading it first will give you a general idea of how the (recruitment) work should be performed. Also, maybe something towards the end of the program will help you at the beginning of it, or maybe certain steps further into the program will help you to adjust your actions and decisions later in the program.

-Read the table of criterion for every stage before starting in order to know what the goals are for the candidate in that particular stage. Don’t proceed to the other stage before the candidate gets the best score in this table.

-Don’t criticize the candidate’s behavior. -Thank him for any help, even if it is just a little. -Caution: don’t disregard his opinion or his manner of thinking, but let him express his opinion even if it opposes yours in a welcoming manner, because this is the Islamic way. -Don’t try to make him a carbon copy of yourself, but let him keep his independency, individual character, and natural personality.

-Don’t separate him from his family, society, or his lifestyle. However, let his family, society, and lifestyle continue to be a part of him; just help him to increase his imaan (which will enable him to deal with everything in Islamic fashion). And a heart which is fascinated with Islamic work loves goodness for all of humanity.

-Don’t invade his privacy thinking that it will bring him closer to you and love you. Avoiding such actions will increase your ability to do da’wa to him.

-Be close to him in order to get to know more about his character.

-Observe his behavior while he is in the company of others to get to know his character and his habits.

-Try to help him in every way possible.

Be careful of the following:

First, be careful of trying to replace his personality with yours, causing him to become a carbon copy of you. Also, don’t make yourself the only role-model for him because you will not attain happiness from this and you will never achieve the objectives of the program. The outcome is that one of the two things will occur: firstly, he will have an independent opinion and it will be clear when you two are thinking about something together. Secondly, he will oppose your opinions and this is evidence for independence of his opinion, and his freedom for his own decision.

Secondly, be careful of talking about the problems of the Muslims from the beginning (of the relationship) so as not to make the relationship appear as your recruiting him; he will say to himself, ‘you are doing all of this with me, just to recruit me, etc.’ Also, don’t rush anything because there will be a proper time for everything.

Thirdly, make sure that you are a Da’ee in all facets of your life, and invite all of the people, i.e. for performing the obligatory prayers, for the Qiyamul Layl (late night prayers), for Jihad, etc. The type of da’wa will depend on the needs or condition of the person. All of this will get you used to working righteousness, and Allah will give guidance (to the people) through you. Also, this will not make the candidate hesitant or afraid, or make him ask himself ‘why did he select me, specifically?’ or ‘why does he care about me, specifically, yet he doesn’t care about anybody else?’

Fourthly, be careful not to talk about Al Qaida, Salafi Jihadis, or any specific jihadi group in the first stages, but the da’ee should speak about the mujahideen and the resistance fighters in general, because maybe this candidate loves the mujahideen but the media has distorted their image, especially Al Qaida..

Fifthly, and finally, be careful not let the candidate know your other da’ee or mujahideen brothers during these stages. However, if the situation necessitates that he should know them, then allow the candidate to know them as only normal brothers.

What does individual da’wa mean?

This is personal and direct contact between the da’ee and the candidate to increase the value of his Islamic commitment so as to make him into a righteous Muslim and to make him ready to fulfill his obligations of calling to Allah and performing Jihad in the Path of Allah by joining the ranks of da’ees/mujahideen.

The sequence of individual da’wa

Statistically speaking, if you make da’wa to one person every year, and this person makes da’wa to one person every year, then after 30 years the number will be 1 billion – imagine, my brother!

The importance of individual da’wa

The importance of this sort of da’wa stems from the importance of calling to Allah in general because calling to Allah with sure knowledge is an obligation for all the Muslims. This is because Allah said, “Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam) enjoining Al Ma’aruf (Islamic monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful.” (Sura Al Imran, 3:104). And Allah said, “Invite to the way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Revelation and the Qur’an) and fair preaching” (Sura Al Nahl, 16:125).

And in the two most authentic books of hadith (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim),

“On the authority of Obada ibn Al Samit (rah), we pledged allegiance to the Messenger (sws) to hear and obey (a Muslim ruler) whether it is convenient or inconvenient for us, and at our times of difficulty or ease. And to be obedient to the Muslim ruler and give him his right even if he didn’t give us our right, and not to fight against him unless we see him having clear kufr, for which we had a proof with us from Allah” (Bukhari Vol.9, #178, Ch.2, Pg.146, and Summarized Muslim Pg. 672, Hadeeth #1221)

The virtues of calling to Allah in general

A lot of ahadith mention the virtues of calling to Allah. Among them is:

1             Collected in Sahih Muslim, on the authority of Abu Hurairah (rah), that the Messenger of Allah (sws) said: “Whoever calls to guidance will have the reward like the one who followed him, without decreasing anything from the reward of his follower.” (Muslim 16/227)

2             Collected in Sahih Bukhari and others, that the Messenger of Allah (sws) said to Ali ibn Abi Talib (rah) when he sent him to Khaybr, “If Allah guides one person through you, it will be better for you than red camels.” (Al Fath 7/7)

The advantages of individual da’wa

1             Individual da’wa refines a person completely. It doesn’t concentrate on only one facet of Islam and neglect another; this is called thorough refining.

2             Individual da’wa creates a relationship between the da’ee and the candidate to prepare the candidate to respond to the call. There is no doubt that this is better than collective da’wa, because this collective da’wa cannot foster a close relationship between the da’ee and the candidate.

3             The da’ee can use individual da’wa in order to follow up the actual application of the instructions which the individual receives. The da’ee can make an accurate observation on the individual, but the same cannot be done through collective da’wa.

4             Through individual da’wa you can respond to doubts which the individual might have, this is something which cannot be done through collective da’wa.

5             Through individual da’wa you can establish principles of jihad which cannot be mentioned publicly. You can talk about these principles seriously and clearly at the proper time; that is to say, each principle can be discussed at its proper time. Also the da’ee can guide the candidate step by step, and can give the candidate what is suitable for him in every situation.

6             Through individual da’wa you can convey the truth to the people whom the media has caused to hate the Mujahideen. Nowadays you will find a lot of people who think that the Mujahideen are takfiris or that the Mujahideen tarnish the image of Islam.  Also, some of the people accuse the Mujahideen of being the reason for the recent wave of insults launched against the Messenger of Allah (sws). And (many Muslims believe) if (the attacks of) September 11th didn’t occur, then the un-believers would not have insulted the Messenger of Allah (sws); and there’s no might nor strength except with Allah.

7             This sort of individual da’wa is a safe way to recruit individuals for creating cells, because we know that the pillars of jihad work consists of three elements money, men, and weapons, and after that (doing individual da’wa to create cells) the problem (of not having men) will be solved.

8             This sort of da’wa can be done by anybody and at any time, it depends on the da’ee; (i.e. individual da’wa is very flexible). The da’ee specifies who he will do da’wa to and when.

9             This individual da’wa gives the da’ee experience and knowledge of the condition of the people, and breaks down the imaginary barriers between the da’ee and the people. Therefore, the mujahid brother must know the condition of the society in which he lives. Most probably, he (the da’ee) will perform jihad in this society.

10           Individual da’wa will incite (the da’ee) towards knowledge and good deeds, so he will be a good role model for the candidate. So, my dear brother, the da’wa purifies your soul and this is a requirement for any Muslim who wants to ride the peak of the deen (i.e. Jihad).

The supportive factors which make the individual da’wa successful

There are many useful factors which the da’ee can use to make his da’wa successful. The most important of these factors is to:

  1. Be sincere to Allah (SWT).

Any form of worship has two conditions before it is accepted by Allah:

  1. Sincerity to Allah
  2. The Following of the Messenger of Allah (sws)
  3. The relationship between the da’ee and Allah (SWT)

If you repair the relationship between you and Allah (SWT), then Allah (SWT) will repair the relationship between you and the people. So the brother (da’ee) has to make a chart to keep track of self improvement in the deen. He should use this chart to preserve the continuity of the sunan (practices of the Prophet (sws)), the qiyamul layl (involuntary night prayers), sadaqah (spending in charity), and the other good deeds which are necessary for whoever wants to be married to the Hur al Ayn (beautiful maidens of Paradise) and whoever wants to enter the Paradise.

  1. Religious knowledge

You should at least have knowledge of what you are inviting to, and the da’ee must be a student of religious knowledge or try to study a little because the time will come when doubts will arise that can only be cleared up with religious knowledge. Also, my dear brother, you must know…that one doubt is sufficient to take a person away from the path, especially if the candidate is in the beginning stage. Also, be careful not to say (to yourself), “I don’t have religious knowledge, so I will not do da’wa to anybody”. This will be a reason for you to be lazy. You can distribute the religious lectures (of scholars via cassette or cd) and you can give Islamic booklets as gifts and you can participate in the da’wa efforts with your (da’ee) brothers.

  1. The necessity of knowing the candidate’s personality

You should know that everyone has good and bad qualities. You must get to know the (candidate’s) virtuous qualities and support them. Likewise, you must get to know his vices, then make a plan to rectify them.

  1. The gradual steps in da’wa The da’ee must not try to change the candidate suddenly because this is not according to the sunnah of Allah and not according to the way of the prophets (as). However, some people do have the ability to change immediately. If we find such a candidate who can change rapidly without having a negative effect on himself, then we must not delay the da’wa; we must help him change according to his own pace. As for the candidate who can only change himself in gradual stages, we must take him through the priorities of da’wa in sequence because maybe a rapid change may have a negative effect on him; and perhaps he will return to the period of ignorance.
  2. The follow-up and observance Individual da’wa requires a lot of effort and the follow-up is a condition in this type of da’wa. This is because life is difficult and there are a lot of shayatin of the humans. Maybe you help to instill in him a specific value, but after you leave him you might find that his faith has decreased or his motivation has dwindled. For example, maybe he knows that jihad is fard al ayn (obligatory on every Muslim), but it doesn’t make any change in his behavior or life. Is this one who neglects his duty for Jihad equal to the one who makes every effort in preparation for Jihad? Is he equal to the one who goes to gates of Rafah with hopes of crossing for Jihad, yet does not have a way to get in? Is this neglectful one equal to the one who went to the Syrian-Iraqi border without any guide with the sole intent of freeing himself before Allah from being blamed and charged for negligence of duty? Nay, by the Lord of Honor and Majesty (Allah) they are not equal.
  • Find a good environment for the candidate In the beginning you have to remove him from his bad environment. Second, search for a good environment for the candidate which will serve to promote his imaan. If you don’t find this environment, you must occupy as much of his time as you can. You should also make a schedule for him to listen to at least one lecture daily. These lectures, books, and pamphlets must become his best friends.
  • Give no consideration to his previous life (of ignorance) Don’t remind him of his previous behavior (in his days of ignorance). Allah (SWT) says: “Even as he is now, so were you yourselves before, until Allah conferred on you His Favors (i.e. guided you to Islam). Therefore, be cautious in discrimination. Allah is Ever Well-Aware of what you do.” (Surah Nisa; 4:94)
  • The variety of methods and tools of da’wa We will mention some of them in this program and we will leave the rest for your personal creativity.

Gaming as a Method for Jihadist Training – Treadstone 71

TBOCBack in September of 2011 not long after the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I was afforded an opportunity by Secureworld Expo to give a luncheon keynote on Online Gaming as a Method for Jihadist Training. The presentation had been sitting gathering dust for nearly two years prior to the keynote and has been sitting gathering more dust since the delivery in Santa Clara.

Cyber Jihadists, the Taliban and other extremist organizations continue to hone their skills and have been using online gaming as a method to improve operational efficiencies in the field. This presentation discusses the brief history of this evolution and the use (as Treadstone 71 has been stating for years) of our infrastructure and technology against us.  What should be of significant interest is the evolution to highly effective and efficient technologies that are used to train for missions and analyze mission results. The same methods and tools used by Western Military.

#Jihad Layoff notice – Times are Tough All Over #AlQaeda to Cut at Least 5,000 jobs – Inspire 11

ImageKABUL (Voice of Sharia – Inspire 11) — Citing worldwide reaction to last week’s terrorist attacks, multi-national terror network Al Qaeda announced Thursday that it would lay off 5,000 or more holy warriors.

The “holy war” concern said the move was necessary because of an expected 20 percent fatwah reduction and cost and complexity of thwarting new airport and immigration security procedures, according to a statement broadcast on Afghanistan’s Voice of Sharia radio.

“This is, without a doubt, the most difficult thing I have had to do in my over two decades as a mujahad,” said Al Qaeda mastermind and chief executive terrorist Ayman Zawahiri in a letter to employees. He added, “Some of these people are my friends, who have been fighting the infidel by my side since we were living in caves in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation. We are still living in caves in Afghanistan, but I believe the bottom is forming and we will see a turnaround soon, provided we can meet the challenge by getting both leaner AND meaner.”

“I have declared a state of emergency at Al Qaeda,” he said. “This declaration is an official recognition that, hard as it may be to accept, our network’s very survival depends on dramatic change to our operations, our jihad and worst of all our staffing levels.”

The cuts, Zawahiri said, would include both mujahadin (holy warriors) and ulema (clerics). They will impact Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, and Iraq in the first wave. Other layoffs may occur if heroin and child pornography business do not perform as planned.

Some mujahadin will be notified immediately, others won’t be notified until the end of next week as they finish attacks in progress or in late stages of planning, according to Taliban spokesman Wakil Ahmed.

Staff cuts for suicide pilots, car bombers, petty religious clerics and other Al Qaeda holy warriors will be based on seniority, Ahmed said, in a deal worked out at a meeting between Zawahiri and union officials from the IBIJ (International Brotherhood of the Islamic Jihad). On way to avoid immediate cuts is to volunteer for suicide missions schedule within the next six months.

Mujahadin and others who lose their jobs will not receive any sort of severance package, according to the Al Qaeda statement. Pakistan, which houses Al Qaeda leadership and its subsidiary Taliban organization, is the world’s largest country with a pre-medieval culture and justice system. The country’s latest quarterly report said the different units of the Al Qaeda/Taliban organization, including the madrassas (schools Pakistan has been running for twenty years to turn ordinary children into suicidal holy warriors) had at total of 30,000 employees, meaning the cut represents a 16 percent reduction in staff.

Al Qaeda is the latest in a string of Islamic terror network layoff announcements, pushing the total of announced cuts in the last five days to 10,000.

Referring to massive U.S. troop movements involving three carrier groups in the Mediterranean and Arabian Sea, worried Afghani ulemas in testimony during the emergency sharia council in Khandahar on Thursday told their spiritual leader Mullah Mohammed Omar that the number is likely to cross the 20,000 threshold in the coming days, through attrition, with none of the expected openings slated to be refilled.

OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) and Zawahiri are considering spending billions on emergency aid to the industry, distributed through a vast network of corrupt Middle Eastern emirs, international prostitution rings and drug smugglers.

The current exchange rate is approximately 100,000 Afghanis to the dollar.

In related news, Hizbullah announced Tuesday it will reduce its workforce by 200 to 300 sleeper agents worldwide by end of 2013 at its commercial bus bombing division and restaurant theater operations.

The Qur’an’s 111 Jihad Passages

TImageranslation used:  M. H. Shakir, published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an, Inc., 1983, unless otherwise indicated.

      002:178-179: [2.178] …retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the slain… [2.179] …there is life for you in (the law of) retaliation, O men of understanding, that you may guard yourselves.

      002:190-191: [2.190] …fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you…[2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

      002:193: …fight with them…

      002:216-218: [2.216] Fighting is enjoined on you…[2.217]…fighting in it. Say: Fighting in it is a grave matter…persecution is graver than slaughter… [2.218]…strove hard in the way of Allah

      002:244: …fight in the way of Allah

      003:121-125: [3.121]…to lodge the believers in encampments for war…[3.123]…Allah did certainly assist you at [the Battle of] Badr…[3.124]…[3.125] Yea! if you remain patient and are on your guard, and they come upon you in a headlong manner, your Lord will assist you with five thousand of the havoc-making angels.

      003:140: If a wound has afflicted you (at [the Battle of] Uhud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelieving) people; and We bring these days to men by turns, and that Allah may know those who believe and take witnesses from among you…

      003:155-156: [3.155] (As for) those of you who turned back on the day when the two armies met…[3.156] O you who believe! be not like those who disbelieve and say of their brethren when they travel in the earth or engage in fighting: Had they been with us, they would not have died and they would not have been slain…

      003:165-167: [3.165]…you had certainly afflicted (the unbelievers) with twice as much [with Jihad]…[3.166]…when the two armies met ([the Battle of] Uhud)…[3.167]…Come, fight in Allah’s way, or defend yourselves…If we knew fighting, we would certainly have followed you…

      003:169: …reckon not those who are killed in Allah’s way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord [meaning they are enjoying their 72 virgins in heaven];

      003:173: …Surely men have gathered against you [in battle]…

      003:195: …who fought and were slain…I will most certainly make them enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; a reward from Allah, and with Allah is yet better reward.

      004:071-072: [4.71] …go forth in detachments or go forth in a body [to war]. [4.72] …hang back [from Jihad] …not present with them [in Jihad].

      004:074-077: [4.74] Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. [4.75]…fight in the way of Allah… [4.76] Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan…[4.77] …when fighting is prescribed for them…Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us? …

      004:084: Fight then in Allah’s way…rouse the believers to ardor maybe Allah will restrain the fighting of those who disbelieve…

      004:089:…if they turn back [to their homes], then seize them and kill them wherever you find them…

      004:091…seize them and kill them wherever you find them…

      004:094-095: [4.94]…when you go to war in Allah’s way… [4.95] …those who strive hard [Jihad] in Allah’s way with their property and their persons are not equal…Allah shall grant to the strivers [i.e., Jihadist] above the holders back a mighty reward:

      004:100: …whoever flies in Allah’s way [forsakes his home to fight in Jihad], he will find in the earth many a place of refuge and abundant resources, and whoever goes forth from his house flying to Allah and His Apostle, and then death overtakes him [in Jihad], his reward is indeed with Allah…

      004:102: …let them take their arms…let them take their precautions and their arms…there is no blame on you, if you are annoyed with rain or if you are sick, that you lay down your arms…

      004:104: …be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy…

      005:033: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land…

      005:035: …strive hard [at Jihad] in His way that you may be successful.

      005:082: …you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews [compare “ with “whenever Jews kindle fire for war, Allah [Muslims] puts it out” (K 005:064)] and those who are polytheists [while they are converted to Islam on pain of death]…

      008:005: …though a party of the believers were surely averse;

      008:007: …Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers;-

      008:009: …I will assist you [in Jihad] with a thousand of the angels following one another [see 008:012].

      008:012: …make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

      008:015-017: [8.15] …when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. [8.16] …for the sake of fighting… [8.17] So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote [Allah gets the credit for Jihad] …

      008:039:…fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah…

      008:042: …Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, that he who would perish might perish by clear proof [all bring success to Jihad against all the odds] …

      008:045: … when you meet a party [in battle], then be firm…

      008:059-060: [8.59] …let not those who disbelieve think that they shall come in first; surely they will not escape. [8.60] …prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; and whatever thing you will spend in Allah’s way [for Jihad] …

      008:065: O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand [in other words, do not understand totalitarian ideologies like Islam].

      008:067: It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives unless he has fought and triumphed in the land…

      008:069: Eat then of the lawful and good (things) which you have acquired in war…

      008:071-072: [8.71]…He gave (you) mastery over them…[8.72] …struggled hard in Allah’s way with their property and their souls [in Jihad], and those who gave shelter and helped [harbored terrorists]– these are guardians of each other; …and if they seek aid from you in the matter of religion [Jihad against people without a treaty—see next phrase], aid is incumbent on you except against a people between whom and you there is a treaty…

      008:074-075: [8.74] (as for) those who believed and fled and struggled hard in Allah’s way [Jihad], and those who gave shelter and helped [harbored terrorists], these are the believers truly; they shall have forgiveness and honorable provision. [8.75] … (as for) those who believed afterwards and fled and struggled hard [Jihad] along with you, they are of you; and the possessors of relationships are nearer to each other in the ordinance of Allah [terrorists have a close relationship with those who harbor them]…

      009:005:…slay the idolaters wherever you find them…take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush…

      009:012-014: [9.12] …fight the leaders of unbelief…[9.13] What! will you not fight a people…[9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.

      009:016: …those of you who have struggled hard [Jihad] …

      009:019-020: [9.19] …strives hard in Allah’s way? …[9.20] …strove hard [Jihad] in Allah’s way with their property and their souls…

      009:024-026: [9.24] …striving in His way [Jihad]:, then wait till Allah brings about His command [to go on Jihad]: … [9.25] Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of [the Battle of] Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, … [9.26] …chastised those who disbelieved [Muhammad gives credit to angels and Allah for the actions of Jihadists]…

      009:029: Fight those who do not believe in Allah…nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

      009:036: …fight the polytheists all together as they fight you all together…

      009:038-039: [9.38] …Go forth in Allah’s way [to Jihad] …[9.38] If you do not go forth [to go on Jihad], He will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your place a people other than you [to go on Jihad]…

      009:041: Go forth lightly [lightly armed] and heavy [heavily armed], and strive hard in Allah’s way [Jihad] with your property and your persons…

      009:044: …striving hard with their property and their persons [Jihad] …

      009:052: …Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or by our hands…

      009:073: …strive hard [Jihad] against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them…

      009:081:…they were averse from striving in Allah’s way [Jihad] with their property and their persons, and said: Do not go forth [to Jihad] in the heat…

      009:083: … shall you fight an enemy with me [in Jihad] …

      009:086: …strive hard [in Jihad] along with His Apostle…

      009:088: …strive hard [in Jihad] with their property and their persons…

      009:092YUSUFALI: Nor (is there blame) on those who came to thee to be provided with mounts [saddles on which to go to war], and when thou said, “I can find no mounts for you,” they turned back, their eyes streaming with tears of grief that they had no resources wherewith to provide the expenses [to go on Jihad].

      009:111: …they fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain…

      009:120: YUSUFALI: …whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the cause of Allah [while on a march to Jihad], or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers [invade their territory], or received any injury whatever from an enemy [during a Jihad battle] …

      009:122-123: [9.122] PICKTHAL: …the believers should not all go out to fight. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth… [9.123] …fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness…

      016:110: YUSUFALI: …who thereafter strive and fight for the faith and patiently persevere…

      022:039: Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made…

      022:078: …strive hard [in Jihad] in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him…

      029:006: …strives hard [in Jihad], he strives only for his own soul…

      029:069: … (as for) those who strive hard [in Jihad] for Us…

      033:015: PICKTHAL: …they had already sworn unto Allah that they would not turn their backs (to the foe) [in Jihad battle] …

      033:018: …they come not to the fight [Jihad] but a little,

      033:020: …they would not fight save a little [in Jihad].

      033:025-026: [33.25] …Allah sufficed the believers in fighting… [33.26] …some [Jews] you killed and you took captive another part.

      047:020: [47.20] …fighting [allusion to Jihad] is mentioned therein …

      048:016: …You shall soon be invited (to fight) against a people possessing mighty prowess; you will fight against them until they submit…

      048:022:…if those who disbelieve fight with you, they would certainly turn (their) backs…

      059:002: …the hands of the believers [i. e. Muslims demolished Jewish homes] …

      059:005-008: [59.5] Whatever palm-tree you cut down or leave standing upon its roots [during a Jihad siege] …you did not press forward against it any horse or a riding camel but Allah gives authority to His apostles against whom He pleases… [59.7] Whatever Allah has restored to His Apostle from the people of the towns [booty] … [59.8] (It is) for …assisting Allah and His Apostle [booty] …

      059:014: They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls…

      060:009: Allah only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of (your) religion [i.e., no fraternizing with the enemy] …

      061:004: …Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall.

      063:004: …they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned back? [This verse speaks of internecine Jihad against Muslims deemed infidels or “hypocrites.”]

      064:014: …surely from among your wives and your children there is an enemy to you; therefore beware of them [collaborators with the enemy, especially if the women were once war spoils] …

      066:009: O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be hard against them…

      073:020: …others who fight in Allah’s way…

IV. Full-text of Verses (With Bolding):

The Koran’s 111 Jihad Passages:

Translation used:  M. H. Shakir, published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an, Inc., 1983, unless otherwise indicated.

      002:178-179: [2.178] O you who believe! retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the slain, the free for the free, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female, but if any remission is made to any one by his (aggrieved) brother, then prosecution (for the bloodwit) should be made according to usage, and payment should be made to him in a good manner; this is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy; so whoever exceeds the limit after this he shall have a painful chastisement. [2.179] And there is life for you in (the law of) retaliation, O men of understanding, that you may guard yourselves.

      002:190-191: [2.190] And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. [2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

      002:193: And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.

      002:216-218: [2.216] Fighting is enjoined on you, and it is an object of dislike to you; and it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know. [2.217] They ask you concerning the sacred month about fighting in it. Say: Fighting in it is a grave matter, and hindering (men) from Allah’s way and denying Him, and (hindering men from) the Sacred Mosque and turning its people out of it, are still graver with Allah, and persecution is graver than slaughter; and they will not cease fighting with you until they turn you back from your religion, if they can; and whoever of you turns back from his religion, then he dies while an unbeliever– these it is whose works shall go for nothing in this world and the hereafter, and they are the inmates of the fire; therein they shall abide. [2.218] Surely those who believed and those who fled (their home) and strove hard in the way of Allah these hope for the mercy of Allah and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

      002:244: And fight in the way of Allah, and know that Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

      003:121-125: [3.121] And when you did go forth early in the morning from your family to lodge the believers in encampments for war and Allah is Hearing, Knowing. [3.122] When two parties from among you had determined that they should show cowardice, and Allah was the guardian of them both, and in Allah should the believers trust. [3.123] And Allah did certainly assist you at [the Battle of] Badr when you were weak; be careful of (your duty to) Allah then, that you may give thanks. [3.124] When you said to the believers: Does it not suffice you that your Lord should assist you with three thousand of the angels sent down? [3.125] Yea! if you remain patient and are on your guard, and they come upon you in a headlong manner, your Lord will assist you with five thousand of the havoc-making angels.

      003:140: If a wound has afflicted you (at [the Battle of] Uhud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelieving) people; and We bring these days to men by turns, and that Allah may know those who believe and take witnesses from among you; and Allah does not love the unjust.

      003:155-156: [3.155] (As for) those of you who turned back on the day when the two armies met, only the Satan sought to cause them to make a slip on account of some deeds they had done, and certainly Allah has pardoned them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Forbearing. [3.156] O you who believe! be not like those who disbelieve and say of their brethren when they travel in the earth or engage in fighting: Had they been with us, they would not have died and they would not have been slain; so Allah makes this to be an intense regret in their hearts; and Allah gives life and causes death and Allah sees what you do.

      003:165-167: [3.165] What! when a misfortune befell you, and you had certainly afflicted (the unbelievers) with twice as much [with Jihad], you began to say: Whence is this? Say: It is from yourselves; surely Allah has power over all things. [3.166] And what befell you on the day when the two armies met ([the Battle of] Uhud) was with Allah’s knowledge, and that He might know the believers. [3.167] And that He might know the hypocrites; and it was said to them: Come, fight in Allah’s way, or defend yourselves. They said: If we knew fighting, we would certainly have followed you. They were on that day much nearer to unbelief than to belief. They say with their mouths what is not in their hearts, and Allah best knows what they conceal.

      003:169: And reckon not those who are killed in Allah’s way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord [meaning they are enjoying their 72 virgins in heaven];

      003:173: Those to whom the people said: Surely men have gathered against you [in battle], therefore fear them, but this increased their faith, and they said: Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the Protector.

      003:195: So their Lord accepted their prayer: That I will not waste the work of a worker among you, whether male or female, the one of you being from the other; they, therefore, who fled and were turned out of their homes and persecuted in My way and who fought and were slain, I will most certainly cover their evil deeds, and I will most certainly make them enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; a reward from Allah, and with Allah is yet better reward.

      004:071-072: [4.71] O you who believe! take your precaution, then go forth in detachments or go forth in a body [to war]. [4.72] And surely among you is he who would certainly hang back [from Jihad]! If then a misfortune befalls you he says: Surely Allah conferred a benefit on me that I was not present with them [in Jihad].

      004:074-077: [4.74] Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. [4.75] And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper. [4.76] Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan; surely the strategy of the Satan is weak. [4.77] Have you not seen those to whom it was said: Withhold your hands, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; but when fighting is prescribed for them, lo! a party of them fear men as they ought to have feared Allah, or (even) with a greater fear, and say: Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us? Wherefore didst Thou not grant us a delay to a near end? Say: The provision of this world is short, and the hereafter is better for him who guards (against evil); and you shall not be wronged the husk of a date stone.

      004:084: Fight then in Allah’s way; this is not imposed on you except in relation to yourself, and rouse the believers to ardor maybe Allah will restrain the fighting of those who disbelieve and Allah is strongest in prowess and strongest to give an exemplary punishment.

      004:089: They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back [to their homes], then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

      004:091: You will find others who desire that they should be safe from you and secure from their own people; as often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and (do not) offer you peace and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given you a clear authority.

      004:094-095: [4.94] O you who believe! when you go to war in Allah’s way, make investigation, and do not say to any one who offers you peace: You are not a believer. Do you seek goods of this world’s life! [Meaning that Muslim ought not say someone is a non-Muslim just to plunder him.] But with Allah there are abundant gains; you too were such before, then Allah conferred a benefit on you; therefore make investigation; surely Allah is aware of what you do. [4.95] The holders back from among the believers, not having any injury, and those who strive hard [Jihad] in Allah’s way with their property and their persons are not equal; Allah has made the strivers with their property and their persons to excel the holders back a (high) degree, and to each (class) Allah has promised good; and Allah shall grant to the strivers [i.e., Jihadist] above the holders back a mighty reward:

      004:100: And whoever flies in Allah’s way [forsakes his home to fight in Jihad], he will find in the earth many a place of refuge and abundant resources, and whoever goes forth from his house flying to Allah and His Apostle, and then death overtakes him [in Jihad], his reward is indeed with Allah and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

      004:102: And when you are among them and keep up the prayer for them, let a party of them stand up with you, and let them take their arms; then when they have prostrated themselves let them go to your rear, and let another party who have not prayed come forward and pray with you, and let them take their precautions and their arms; (for) those who disbelieve desire that you may be careless of your arms and your luggage, so that they may then turn upon you with a sudden united attack, and there is no blame on you, if you are annoyed with rain or if you are sick, that you lay down your arms, and take your precautions; surely Allah has prepared a disgraceful chastisement for the unbelievers.

      004:104: And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain, and you hope from Allah what they do not hope; and Allah is Knowing, Wise

      005:033: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned [Pickthal and Yusufali:  exiled]; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement,

      005:035: O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and strive hard [at Jihad] in His way  that you may be successful.

      005:082: Certainly you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews [compare “ with “whenever Jews kindle fire for war, Allah [Muslims] puts it out” (K 005:064)] and those who are polytheists [while they are converted to Islam on pain of death]…

      008:005: Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse;

      008:007: YUSUFALI: Behold! Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers;-

      008:009: When you sought aid from your Lord [at the Battle of Badr], so He answered you: I will assist you [in Jihad] with a thousand of the angels following one another [see 008:012].

      008:012: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

      008:015-017: [8.15] O you who believe! when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. [8.16] And whoever shall turn his back to them on that day—unless he turn aside for the sake of fighting or withdraws to a company– then he, indeed, becomes deserving of Allah’s wrath, and his abode is hell; and an evil destination shall it be. [8.17] So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote [Allah gets the credit for Jihad], and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself; surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

      008:039: And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do.

      008:042: When you were on the nearer side (of the valley) and they were on the farthest side, while the caravan was in a lower place than you [the Mekkan caravan the Muslims robbed]; and if you had mutually made an appointment, you would certainly have broken away from the appointment, but– in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, that he who would perish might perish by clear proof [all bring success to Jihad against all the odds], and he who would live might live by clear proof; and most surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing;

      008:045: O you who believe! when you meet a party [in battle], then be firm, and remember Allah much, that you may be successful.

      008:059-060: [8.59] And let not those who disbelieve think that they shall come in first; surely they will not escape. [8.60] And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; and whatever thing you will spend in Allah’s way [for Jihad], it will be paid back to you fully and you shall not be dealt with unjustly.

      008:065: O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand [in other words, do not understand totalitarian ideologies like Islam].

      008:067: It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives unless he has fought and triumphed in the land; you desire the frail goods of this world [i.e., ransom money], while Allah desires (for you) the hereafter; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

      008:069: Eat then of the lawful and good (things) which you have acquired in war, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

      008:071-072: [8.71] And if they intend to act unfaithfully towards you, so indeed they acted unfaithfully towards Allah before, but He gave (you) mastery over them; and Allah is Knowing, Wise. [8.72] Surely those who believed and fled (their homes) and struggled hard in Allah’s way with their property and their souls [in Jihad], and those who gave shelter and helped [harbored terrorists]– these are guardians of each other; and (as for) those who believed and did not fly, not yours is their guardianship until they fly; and if they seek aid from you in the matter of religion [Jihad against people without a treaty—see next phrase], aid is incumbent on you except against a people between whom and you there is a treaty, and Allah sees what you do.

      008:074-075: [8.74] And (as for) those who believed and fled and struggled hard in Allah’s way [Jihad], and those who gave shelter and helped [harbored terrorists], these are the believers truly; they shall have forgiveness and honorable provision. [8.75] And (as for) those who believed afterwards and fled and struggled hard [Jihad] along with you, they are of you; and the possessors of relationships are nearer to each other in the ordinance of Allah [terrorists have a close relationship with those who harbor them]; surely Allah knows all things.

      009:005: So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

      009:012-014: [9.12] And if they break their oaths after their agreement and (openly) revile your religion, then fight the leaders of unbelief— surely their oaths are nothing– so that they may desist. [9.13] What! will you not fight a people who broke their oaths and aimed at the expulsion of the Apostle, and they attacked you first; do you fear them? But Allah is most deserving that you should fear Him, if you are believers. [9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.

      009:016: What! do you think that you will be left alone while Allah has not yet known those of you who have struggled hard [Jihad] and have not taken any one as an adherent besides Allah and His Apostle and the believers; and Allah is aware of what you do.

      009:019-020: [9.19] What! do you make (one who undertakes) the giving of drink to the pilgrims and the guarding of the Sacred Mosque like him who believes in Allah and the latter day and strives hard in Allah’s way [Jihad]? They are not equal with Allah; and Allah does not guide the unjust people. [9.20] Those who believed and fled (their homes), and strove hard [Jihad] in Allah’s way with their property and their souls, are much higher in rank with Allah; and those are they who are the achievers (of their objects).

      009:024-026: [9.24] Say: If your fathers and your sons and your brethren and your mates and your kinsfolk and property which you have acquired, and the slackness of trade which you fear and dwellings which you like, are dearer to you than Allah and His Apostle and striving in His way [Jihad]:, then wait till Allah brings about His command [to go on Jihad]: and Allah does not guide the transgressing people. [9.25] Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of [the Battle of] Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, but they availed you nothing and the earth became strait to you notwithstanding its spaciousness, then you turned back retreating. [9.26] Then Allah sent down His tranquility upon His Apostle and upon the believers, and sent down hosts which you did not see, and chastised those who disbelieved [Muhammad gives credit to angels and Allah for the actions of Jihadists], and that is the reward of the unbelievers.

      009:029: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

      009:036: Surely the number of months with Allah is twelve months in Allah’s ordinance since the day when He created the heavens and the earth, of these four being sacred; that is the right reckoning; therefore be not unjust to yourselves regarding them, and fight the polytheists all together as they fight you all together; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

      009:038-039: [9.38] O you who believe! What (excuse) have you that when it is said to you: Go forth in Allah’s way [to Jihad], you should incline heavily to earth; are you contented with this world’s life instead of the hereafter? But the provision of this world’s life compared with the hereafter is but little. [9.38] If you do not go forth [to go on Jihad], He will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your place a people other than you [to go on Jihad], and you will do Him no harm; and Allah has power over all things.

      009:041: Go forth lightly [lightly armed] and heavy [heavily armed], and strive hard in Allah’s way [Jihad] with your property and your persons; this is better for you, if you know.

      009:044: They do not ask leave of you who believe in Allah and the latter day (to stay away) from striving hard with their property and their persons [Jihad], and Allah knows those who guard (against evil).

      009:052: Say: Do you await for us but one of two most excellent things? And we await for you that Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or by our hands. So wait; we too will wait with you.

      009:073: O Prophet! strive hard [Jihad] against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.

      009:081: Those who were left behind were glad on account of their sitting behind Allah’s Apostle and they were averse from striving m Allah’s way [Jihad] with their property and their persons, and said: Do not go forth [to Jihad] in the heat. Say: The fire of hell is much severe in heat. Would that they understood (it).

      009:083: Therefore if Allah brings you back to a party of them and then they ask your permission to go forth, say: By no means shall you ever go forth with me and by no means shall you fight an enemy with me [in Jihad]; surely you chose to sit the first time, therefore sit (now) with those who remain behind.

      009:086: And whenever a chapter is revealed, saying: Believe in Allah and strive hard [in Jihad] along with His Apostle, those having ampleness of means ask permission of you and say: Leave us (behind), that we may be with those who sit.

      009:088: But the Apostle and those who believe with him strive hard [in Jihad] with their property and their persons; and these it is who shall have the good things and these it is who shall be successful.

      009:092: YUSUFALI: Nor (is there blame) on those who came to thee to be provided with mounts [saddles on which to go to war], and when thou said, “I can find no mounts for you,” they turned back, their eyes streaming with tears of grief that they had no resources wherewith to provide the expenses [to go on Jihad].

      009:111: Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

      009:120: YUSUFALI: It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighborhood, to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his: because nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness,- whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the cause of Allah [while on a march to Jihad], or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers [invade their territory], or received any injury whatever from an enemy [during a Jihad battle]: for Allah suffers not the reward to be lost of those who do good;-

      009:122-123: [9.122] PICKTHAL: And the believers should not all go out to fight. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth, that they (who are left behind) may gain sound knowledge in religion, and that they may warn their folk when they return to them, so that they may beware. [9.123] O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

      016:110: YUSUFALI: But verily thy Lord,- to those who leave their homes after trials and persecutions,- and who thereafter strive and fight for the faith and patiently persevere,- Thy Lord, after all this is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

      022:039: Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because they are oppressed, and most surely Allah is well able to assist them;

      022:078: And strive hard [in Jihad] in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him; He has chosen you and has not laid upon you a hardship in religion; the faith of your father Ibrahim; He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Messenger may be a bearer of witness to you, and you may be bearers of witness to the people; therefore keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast by Allah; He is your Guardian; how excellent the Guardian and how excellent the Helper!

      029:006: And whoever strives hard [in Jihad], he strives only for his own soul; most surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of) the worlds.

      029:069: And (as for) those who strive hard [in Jihad] for Us, We will most certainly guide them in Our ways; and Allah is most surely with the doers of good.

      033:015: PICKTHAL: And verily they had already sworn unto Allah that they would not turn their backs (to the foe) [in Jihad battle]. An oath to Allah must be answered for.

      033:018: Allah knows indeed those among you who hinder others and those who say to their brethren: Come to us; and they come not to the fight [Jihad] but a little,

      033:020: They think the allies are not gone, and if the allies should come (again) they would fain [gladly] be in the deserts with the desert Arabs asking for news about you, and if they were among you they would not fight save a little [in Jihad].

      033:025-026: [33.25] And Allah turned back the unbelievers in their rage; they did not obtain any advantage, and Allah sufficed the believers in fighting; and Allah is Strong, Mighty.
[33.26] And He drove down those of the followers of the Book who backed them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their hearts; some [Jews] you killed and you took captive another part.

      047:020: And those who believe say: Why has not a chapter been revealed? But when a decisive chapter is revealed, and fighting [allusion to Jihad] is mentioned therein you see those in whose hearts is a disease look to you with the look of one fainting because of death. Woe to them then!

      048:016: Say to those of the dwellers of the desert [the Bedouin] who were left behind: You shall soon be invited (to fight) against a people possessing mighty prowess; you will fight against them until they submit; then if you obey, Allah will grant you a good reward [booty]; and if you turn back as you turned back before, He will punish you with a painful punishment.

      048:022: And if those who disbelieve fight with you, they would certainly turn (their) backs, then they would not find any protector or a helper.

      059:002: He it is Who caused those who disbelieved of the followers of the Book to go forth from their homes at the first banishment you did not think that they would go forth, while they were certain that their fortresses would defend them against Allah; but Allah came to them whence they did not expect, and cast terror into their hearts; they demolished their houses with their own hands and the hands of the believers [i. e. Muslims demolished Jewish homes]; therefore take a lesson, O you who have eyes!

      059:005-008: [59.5] Whatever palm-tree you cut down or leave standing upon its roots [during a Jihad siege], It is by Allah’s command, and that He may abase the transgressors. [59.6] And whatever Allah restored to His Apostle from them you did not press forward against it any horse or a riding camel but Allah gives authority to His apostles against whom He pleases, and Allah has power over all things. [59.7] Whatever Allah has restored to His Apostle from the people of the towns [booty], it is for Allah and for the Apostle, and for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, so that it may not be a thing taken by turns among the rich of you, and whatever the Apostle gives you, accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in retributing (evil): [59.8] (It is) for the poor who fled their homes and their possessions, seeking grace of Allah and (His) pleasure, and assisting Allah and His Apostle [booty]: these it is that are the truthful.

      059:014: They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls; their fighting between them is severe, you may think them as one body, and their hearts are disunited; that is because they are a people who have no sense.

      060:009: Allah only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of (your) religion [i.e., no fraternizing with the enemy], and drove you forth from your homes and backed up (others) in your expulsion, that you make friends with them, and whoever makes friends with them, these are the unjust.

      061:004: Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall.

      063:004: And when you see them, their persons will please you, and If they speak, you will listen to their speech; (they are) as if they were big pieces of wood clad with garments; they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned back? [This verse speaks of internecine Jihad against Muslims deemed infidels or “hypocrites.”]

      064:014: O you who believe! surely from among your wives and your children there is an enemy to you; therefore beware of them [collaborators with the enemy, especially if the women were once war spoils]; and if you pardon and forbear and forgive, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

      066:009: O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be hard against them; and their abode is hell; and evil is the resort.

      073:020: Surely your Lord knows that you pass in prayer nearly two-thirds of the night, and (sometimes) half of it, and (sometimes) a third of it, and (also) a party of those with you; and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are not able to do it, so He has turned to you (mercifully), therefore read what is easy of the Quran. He knows that there must be among you sick, and others who travel in the land seeking of the bounty of Allah, and others who fight in Allah’s way, therefore read as much of it as is easy (to you), and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and offer to Allah a goodly gift, and whatever of good you send on beforehand for yourselves, you will find it with Allah; that is best and greatest in reward; and ask forgiveness of Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

9/11 Anniversary – Postings from our Adversaries Ensuring We Never Forget

Below are links to a series of documents covering various aspects of the struggle against extremist Islam. The hatred exhibited by the likes of Bin Laden, Zawahiri and others is legendary. The extent they will go to murder innocent people, universal. The documents below vary from parts 1 and 2 of the ‘Raid on Manhattan’ compilation by Salafi Jihadists to court information on Zawahiri and the indictment of Adam Gadahn. In addition, the long forgotten, Jihad Recollections, the precursor to the Inspire magazine is included with their 9/11 anniversary version. The readings will elicit various emotions and responses. What we seek is to remember and stay vigilant. This is a war that is not temporary.
