Dubai, 27 May (AKI ) - By Hamza Boccolini - A new video called "Nuclear Terrorism" has been posted on the worldwide web calling for jihadists to use nuclear or chemical weapons to strike the west.
A simple jihadi propaganda video or a dangerous message to a sleeper cell in the west? That is the question raised by the video and no-one has yet claimed responsibility for it.
"Strike civilians in the west without mercy using weapons of mass destruction" is one of the calls made in the 39-minute video.
The question now being asked is whether the video is presenting a coded message or signalling an imminent terrorist attack.
Before the video was posted on the Arab internet forum Ekhlas a banner headline appeared on the website that said: "Pray, pray, Allah is great. America is destroyed by a fatal jihadist nuclear strike."
Clicking on the banner gives the viewer access to a documentary which shows diverse images - from al-Qaeda speeches to western documentaries and other Islamist videos.
The objective appears to be to incite followers of al-Qaeda to use weapons of mass destruction to strike the west, but there may be more to it.
The video opens with two verses of the Koran that emphasise "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". It then says "Fight them until there is no more persecution and Allah is the only object of worship. If they desist, there will be no hostility, except against those who are dishonest."
"Attack those who attack you. Fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him."
The documentary, filmed in Arabic, begins with images of a documentary distributed in November 2004 by the Italian news network, Rai News 24 entitled, The Hidden Massacre, in which US soldiers allegedly used chemical weapons against Iraqis in the city of Falluja.
It also includes the voice of an Arab jihadist who appears to be giving a lesson to a group of people on the need to conduct attacks against the US and Europe.
"This is called terrorism, but we cannot stop aggression against our countries if we do not use these arms, as Russia and the US did when they were conducting their arms race. If you have them, we must also have them."
Then a voice off camera invites mujahadeen or Muslim fighters to learn how to obtain these weapons of mass destruction and shows a document on the "rules for using weapons of mass destruction against the unbelievers" written by Saudi scholar Naser Bin Hamed al-Fahd.
The document dated 21 May 2003 was written by one of the Saudi ulema or religious leaders close to the Salafite movement and to movements opposed to the Saudi royal family that support al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
"They kill our people and for this reason we should also strike them with weapons of mass destruction - doing so forms part of our response to their attacks,"
"In Jihad we cannot do to them everything they do to us, for example rape our women. But we can respond to weapons of mass destruction.
"There are quantities of uranium on sale, and since the fall of the Soviet Union their nuclear weapons are available on the market.
"The second point is in respect of chemical weapons. They can be used in one of the villages of European countries. This is called terrorism but all this cannot end if we don't conduct such an operation against them.
"We cannot stop the operations against our civilians conducted by Jews and Christians in our countries if we don't do the same thing.
"The problem is nuclear arms are very expensive, while chemical weapons are cheap.
"The best weapons to use are bacteriological ones. This type of barbarous weapon is used by the international community.
"Why shouldn't we use them if the crusaders consider them an effective weapons?"
Just wait... Obama will see to it that soon Iran will hand them out like candy.
I’d call these terrorists cockroaches, but that would be unfair to the lowly cockroach.
The day that Islamofascist terrorists manage to sneak a nuke into a U.S. city and detonate it will be the end of Islam on a global basis. Every so-called ‘holy site’? Green glass special.
Every mosque? New latrine for that neighborhood.
Any life form croaking the words ‘allah akbar’?
Dead as a doornail.
That of course is predicated on America having a President with forged steel balls and not one prattling away about Islam being a ‘religion of peace’ and all of that crap.
I believe they have the capability now, that they’ve had it for some time. They only thing stopping them is the realization that the West’s current leadership would respond with the immediate destruction of all Islam, and all involved in the weapon’s supply chain. Our fault, their fault, or nobody’s fault. Everyone gets it in the shorts regardless. They’ll use one, however, the minute they sense weakness or indecision on our part; the instant they sense we would be unwilling to fight back. It calls to mind the interviews I watched in the 1970s of the former members of the Japanese high command. When asked why they chose to attack the United States at Pearl Harbor, they answered to a man, “we attacked because we were convinced you would not fight back; that you would immediately capitulate.” Those who fail to learn the lessons of history...
Sadly, a nuclear detonation is likely what it will take for the appeasement, head in the sand, “to compare terrorism with an all-encompassing ideology like communism and fascism is evidence of profound confusion”, moronic democrats to finally understand what we’re up against...
The West's current leadership? You mean the leader who mandates the title "Religion of Peace" for all his Islamic buddies? What planet are you from?
I think you overestimate the American press and political class. They will call for more understanding after an initial bout of anger and foot stamping. They will blame President Bush and we will be having midnight basketball in all major muslim cities.
Read Dead Heat by Joel C. Rosenberg.
You mean underestimate.
General Tommy Franks is already on the record as saying that the next terrorist attack (particularly a WMD based attack) would likely result in the suspension of the Constitution and martial law being imposed.
The truth is, that’s what should have been done on 9/12.
We have made it our long-standing policy, made it abundately clear over the years that we will respond in kind. It’s kept our enemies in check since WWII. Though they may field a weapon giving momentary tactical advantage, we will respond with the full might of the American arsenal and erase them from human memory. The Soviets understood this during the Cold War, and refused to risk all, the ultimate destruction of the Motherland, even when Mr. Carter was President.
I wouldn’t count on the same idiots now to ‘wake up’.
They’ll blame conservatives.
After they nuke us, it’ll probably take a civil war first to get rid of the liberals, then move on to the other enemy that did it to us.
And the really ironic part is that it will likely be done by a Democratic president...
I don’t think we needed martial law then. What was needed was the destruction of the islamic world on 9/12 using nuclear weaponry.
About 20 cities and ‘holy sites’ destroyed, from Lybia to Indonesia.
It would ‘reboot’ a lot of the world, but it would be a much safer place in the long run than allowing islam to exist.
Don’t worry. Obama says that terrorism isn’t a big deal.
I debated on which word to use, but I think the poster overestimates their ability to do the right thing.
I hope you’re right, but how many of us would have ever imagined that 9/11 would have caused the press and our politicos to call for more understanding of muslims??
Except that no one will ever be good enough for these animals. In their book, anyone who disagrees with them is *dishonest*.
Seeing how they feed off each other when there's no infidels around to go after does not lend itself to making one able believe them, that they'd leave us alone if we co-operated.
Good luck with the last condition.
