A New Pro Al-Qaeda Magazine for Extremists is Offering Fitness Tips to Jihadists
A new pro al-Qaeda magazine for extremists is offering fitness tips to jihadists planning attacks against Americans in countries such as Afghanistan.
The first edition out this month offers workout tips to get buff with the aim "to train as hard as possible in order to damage the enemies of Allah as much as possible."
The English language e-zine, Jihad Recollections, is about 70 pages long and is thought to be produced by an American living in North Carolina. It claims to have articles written by Osama bin Laden and his second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Pull-ups, walking on your hands and crawling long distances are just some of the suggested exercises that come along with illustrations of white-robed men with scarves covering their faces&perhaps not the most comfortable of work-out clothing.
Ashleigh Prince, a fitness instructor at Virgin Active gyms in London, told ABC News.com that he wouldn't recommend exercising in loose-fitting clothing. "This just isn't very practical and I would advise against it as it could get caught, causing injury."
Readers are advised to avoid weights during training because they aren't available on the front line. They are also told to stay away from the gym because of the "un-Islamic" music and the presence of "semi-naked women," and to carry on even if they feel exhausted "for Allah's sake."
As well as cardio training, such as jogging, readers are also urged to strengthen their legs as they will need to "carry weapons and equipment."
The article explains the importance of being swift on your feet "especially during raids on the enemy" and cites examples of successful attacks where speed was essential.

“This is the very first English Jihadi Magazine aimed at the laymen, students of knowledge, political activists, intellectuals and scholars of the Ummah. It will seek to educate the Ummah on a monthly basis as to the latest happenings in fields related to Politics, Society, Economy, Technology etc. as well as educate the Muslims on the worldview of the Jihadi current. This magazine will serve as a platform for the English speaking Muslim Community to discuss their ideas, differences and thoughts on various issues related to the Islamic world and the hot issues which many stay silent on.”

Squats and Milk! LOL! So this guy is a fitness trainer? No threat of the jihadis ever getting very strong using his advice.
They need to be in shape for their 72 raisins.
What does he recommend for outrunning a sniper’s .50 BMG or Hellfire missile?
But we shouldn't be wiretapping Jihadists in America in communication internationally with members of AQ, right ABCDisney?!!!
THE JAWA REPORT - blog: "SAMMY AND JOEY RELEASE JIHAD RECOLLECTIONS #2" (SNIPPET: "Update: More analysis from Laura Mansfield who points out this quote from a section on how the al-Qaeda supporter should treat new recruits AKA reverts. 'Now, I know the disbelieving media outlets will look at this list and make up some childish statement such as, 'Jihadists devise strategic list to make converts into terrorists'. My advice to them is: if you have a problem with Jihad, then you have a problem with our religion. Jihad is not just a strategic means to a greater political goal for us, but it is also an act of worship which Allah loves and sanctions. Call us terrorists or fanatics; we dont care because this is our religion and we are proud to be on the side of the virtuous'") (May 17, 2009)
JIHADICA.com - blog: "JIHAD RECOLLECTIONS" by Thomas Hegghammer (SNIPPET: "We usually don't cover English language jihadi media here at Jihadica, but the recent release of a new magazine entitled Jihad Recollections (JR) attracted my attention because it is produced by Fursan media and because it is so well done. The magazine fills a gap in the world of jihadi media, as the editorial states...") (April 7, 2009)
