The 14th issue of Dabiq declared in the foreword, peppered with bloody photos of the March 22 attacks, that “the death of a single Muslim, no matter his role in society, is more grave to the believer than the massacre of every kāfir [disbeliever] on earth.”
PJ Media “And while the Sharīa calls for the invasion of all kāfir lands, certainly the aggressors are dealt with before those nations not actively waging war against the Khilāfah. This is an obvious reality. Any disbeliever standing in the way of the Islamic State will be killed, without pity or remorse, until Muslims suffer no harm and governance is entirely for Allah.”
Belgium is referred to as a “battleground,” a status “soon to spread to the rest of crusader Europe and the West.”
“Paris was a warning. Brussels was a reminder. What is yet to come will be more devastating and more bitter,” the magazine states. “…Bullets and shrapnel will slash and pierce all those whom Allah’s soldiers reach.” Bloodshed will not end, ISIS vows, “until the rule of Allah reaches east to west and the Muslims walk undisturbed by the kāfir filth beneath them.”
Because the jihadis see themselves as working for Allah, the foreword adds, “there is thus no possibility of their surrender to humans” and “crusaders,” after “resolve dissipates,” will “fall at the feet of the invading lions, appealing for amnesty and begging to pay jizyah [tax].”
The issue includes obituaries for the Brussels bombers, calling Ibrahim El Bakraoui a guy “known for his bravery and generosity” and his brother Khalid “a man of strong character, a natural leader.” Both men are described as being drawn to terrorism while in prison for other offenses.
Insite Intelblog An article titled “Assassinations – Field Tactics” provided a list of assassination targets selected to “bring instability to the American economy.” The targets included American “economic personalities” Ben Bernanke and James Shiller, as well as “wealthy entrepreneurs and company owners,” which included Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oracle CEO Lawrence Joseph, the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, and Michael Bloomberg. Notable is that the list included Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, who died in 1992. However, the list provided the net worth and a picture of his son, Jim Walton.
In the “Charlie Hebdo Military Analysis” article, author Ibrahim Ibn Hassan al-A’siri categorized the Charlie Hebdo attack as an assassination, and implied credit of the attack’s inspiration to a poster of targets released in the tenth issue of Inspire in February of 2013. The article showed a version of the poster with killed Charlie Hebdo caricaturist Stephane Charbonnier:
The article then detailed the operation, stating, “The planning and initiation of the operation was in the Arabian Peninsula. The target was inside the heart and protection of the French intelligence system.” It also credited AQ with providing attacker Said Kouachi with the “necessary training” for the attack, and followed up by detailing his target and weapon selections.
The article ended by referring prospective lone wolves to Inspire’s “Open Source Jihad” bomb-making articles: The brothers at “Open Source Jihad” will give technical details as how to execute an operation similar to this, and in a manner that is convenient for a “Lone Mujaheed”. Until he is able to execute a similar operation, that has made pleased the Muslims and angered the disbelievers.
