Anwar al-Awlaki Summer 2010 (Duplicate Quote-for Leader Report only)

Name of Author
Anwar al-Awlaki

“Whenever the affair calms down, someone somewhere in the Western world is sure to flare it up again. From 2005 onwards the cycle of offense is unabated.

What the West is failing to realize is that these attacks are also serving as a mobilizing factor for the Muslims and are bringing more and more Muslims to the realization that jihad against the West is the only realistic solution for this problem along with a host of other problems that cannot be cured without fighting in the path of Allah.”

The West has started this war and it will turn colossal. The West is awakening a sleeping giant.

The entire Western system is staunchly protecting and promoting the defamation of Muhammad and therefore, it is the entire Western system that is at war with Islam. Assassinations, bombings, and acts of arson are all legitimate forms of revenge against a system that relishes the sacrilege of Islam in the name of freedom.” Anwar al-Awlaki, “May Our Souls Be Sacrificed For You!” Inspire Magazine Issue 1 (2010): 27-28.
