Now who could that possibly be?
Evidently, the folks at what passes for the HR department for al Qaeda aren’t exactly the sharpest tools in the shed. (Actually, that’s no surprise.) Who, exactly, will al Qaeda’s suicide bombers be targeting? Could it be us? We of the counterjihad movement are the people who truly are fighting Islam and Muslims these days.
Al Qaeda also plans to attack enemy “financial, military and media targets.” Who, or what, could be on their list of media targets? The mainstream media are certainly no enemies of Islam, especially now that the Muslim Brotherhood is buying up every media outlet it can. Unless you count Sun Media in Canada and a few Israeli media outlets, it’s hard to find anybody in the mainstream media in the West telling it like it is. Instead, individuals and groups in the counterjihad are using Internet-based independent media, together with many face-to-face contacts, to network and to educate the public.
That was then; this is now
Al Qaeda did succeed in killing Daniel Pearl in 1999, to stop him from exposing the elaborate hoaxes that were being used as pretexts for the 1999 Kosovo War. But that was then, this is now. Thanks to well over a decade of hard work on our part, we of the counterjihad movement are many, we are decentralized, we are all over the world, and no suicide bomber can silence us.

Apparently low on bombers, al-Qaeda is running a (short-term) employment advertisement on its Shumukh al-Islam Internet forum. Under the heading “Area of activity: The planet Earth,” the ad seeks jihadists to carry out suicide attacks.
Applicants must be Muslim, mentally mature, dedicated, able to listen, and utterly committed to completing their mission, the Hebrew daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Tuesday.
Several email addresses are provided for applicants. While their real names are not required, candidates are asked to send details of their nickname or handle, their age, marital status, languages spoken and a list of passports in their possession.
The ad on the forum, which is accessible only to al-Qaeda members, specifies the targets of the terror attacks that applicants will be expected to carry out, including “People who fight Islam and Muslims” and enemy “financial, military and media targets.”
The ad indicates that the anticipated attacks will be solo operations: “Only one person will be in charge. He will gather all of the intelligence, he will prepare the operation — and he will complete the attack.” However, it continues, “a military panel” will oversee the bomber’s training and select the target.
The job description promises only a “very slight chance of being caught.”
The ad has elicited several positive responses, the Yedioth article claimed. One forum participant requested that Germany, Denmark and Sweden be specified as potential targets. The same participant warned the forum to be very careful about what it publishes, for fear that the enemy may see what the group is planning.
