Inspire 7 American Jihadi Samir Khan: A Powerful Media Production is as Hard-Hitting as an Operation in America
SNIPPET: In an article in the seventh issue of Inspire, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsulas English-language magazine, U.S.-born Samir Khan hails Al-Qaedas media jihad as a component in the war against the U.S. that is of equal importance to actual attacks on it. Khan asserts that Al-Qaeda has won the preliminary stages of the battle for the hearts and minds of Muslims, thus ensuring that the organizations ideology will live on. One of the reasons for this victory, he explains, lies in the fact that the West and the media present Al-Qaedas ideology as nothing but terrorism, whereas the organizations creed is that of Islam, a fact that earns it the support of Muslims.
Khan concludes the article by listing the four key elements which enable Al-Qaeda to win the media war: the technological savvy of Al-Qaedas media operatives, the U.S.s failure to respond to Al-Qaedas propaganda, the U.S.s media blunders which damage its image in Muslim public opinion, and the general suspicion in which Muslims view the U.S.
