Abu Musab Al Suri, Al-Qaeda Operations Head, 2004

Lone Wolf Terrorism (from GIR published in 2004): “We ask the Muslim youth to be a terrorist. Why do we ask for such individual terrorism? First because secret hierarchical organizations failed to attract Muslims. The youth fear joining such an organization because if there is a mistake then the authorities will reach them. Second because we need to give the youth the chance to play a role without being part of an organization. Some youth don’t want to join an organization and don’t know how to act on their beliefs. Third due to pressure from the Jews, Crusaders and lapsed Muslim regimes.”Paul Cruickshank, “Abu Musab Al Suri: Architect of the New Al Qaeda,”  Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, 30:1–14, 2007, page 8, Center on Law and Security, NYU School of Law, http://www.lawandsecurity.org/portals/0/documents/abumusabalsuriarchitectofthenewalqaeda.pdf.

“Dear Commie, Being the shallow n[****]r-loving dilettante that you are, you probably DO consider n[****]rs to be your equal (who am I to question this?). Yet, unlike you and your allies, I have an IQ in excess of 130, which grants me the ability to objectively evaluate the Great American Nigro (Africanus Criminalis). I honestly pray to God that some n[****]r fucks, kills and eats you and everyone you claim to love!”Camille Jackson, “St. Louis Hate Group Leader, Earl Holt, Continues to Host Radio Show After Posting Racist Diatribe Online,” Southern Poverty Law Center, Spring 2004, http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2004/spring/the-rating-game/belligerent-broadcast.

“Israeli society has a unique trait that makes it different from the other human societies, and that is that as far as the people of Palestine are concerned, it is a ‘society of invaders’ who came from outside the region – from Russia or America, from Europe or from the lands of the Orient – to occupy Palestine and settle in it… Those who are invaded have the right to fight the invaders with all means at their disposal in order to remove [the invaders] from their homes and send them back to the homes from whence they came… This is a Jihad of necessity, as the clerics call it, and not Jihad of choice… Even if an innocent child is killed as a result of this Jihad – it was not intended, but rather due to the necessities of the war… Even with the passage of time, these [Israeli] so-called 'civilians' do not stop being invaders, evil, tyrants, and oppressors…”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – ‘Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers’,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

“Our brothers in Palestine are, without doubt, in a situation of extreme necessity to carry out martyrdom operations in order to unsettle their enemies and the plunderers of their land and to sow horror in their hearts so that they will leave, and return to the places from whence they came… What weapon can harm their enemy, can prevent him from sleeping, and can strip him of a sense of security and stability, except for these human bombs – a young man or woman who blows himself or herself up amongst their enemy. This is a weapon the likes of which the enemy cannot obtain, even if the U.S. provides it with billions [of dollars] and the most powerful weapons, because it is a unique weapon that Allah has placed only in the hands of the men of belief. It is a type of divine justice on the face of the earth… it is the weapon of the wretched weak in the face of the powerful tyrant…”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – ‘Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers’,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

“[T]he one who carries out a martyrdom operation does not think of himself. He sacrifices himself for the sake of a higher goal, for which all sacrifices become meaningless. He sells himself to Allah in order to buy Paradise in exchange. Allah said: ‘Allah has bought from the believers their souls and their properties for they shall inherit Paradise…[Koran 9:111]’”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – ‘Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers’,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Brotherhood spiritual and intellectual leader, July 19, 2003

“While the [person who commits] suicide dies in escape and retreat, the one who carries out a martyrdom operation dies in advance and attack. Unlike the [person who commits] suicide, who has no goal except escape from confrontation, the one who carries out a martyrdom operation has a clear goal, and that is to please Allah…”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – ‘Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers’,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

“[Suicide bombings are] the supreme form of Jihad … that is allowed by the Shari'a… These are heroic operations of martyrdom."“Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi in London to Establish ‘The International Council of Muslim Clerics,’” MEMRI, July 8, 2004, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/1168.htm#_edn2.

“Suicide attacks and jihad reinforce national unity in the ranks.... Our voice is one of struggle, of jihad and of suicide.... Iraq could win if it equipped its citizens with explosive belts and turned them into human bombs.”“Hamas in Their Own Words,” Anti-Defamation League, May 2, 2011, http://www.adl.org/anti-semitism/muslim-arab-world/c/hamas-in-their-own-words.html.

Istimata (Absolute Struggle) Webpage, In Reference to Bali bombings, December 2002

“Let it be acknowledged that every single drop of Muslim blood, be it from any nationality and from any place will be remembered and accounted for.

[…]

“The heinous crime and international conspiracy of the Christians also extends to the Philippines and Indonesia. This has resulted in Muslim cleansing in Moro, Ambon, Poso and surrounding areas. It is clearly evident the crusade is continuing and will not stop. Every blow will be repaid. Blood will be redeemed by blood. A life for a life. One Muslim to another is like a single body. If one part is in pain, the other part will also feel it.

[…]

“To all you Christian unbelievers, if you define this act on your civilians as heinous and cruel, you yourself have committed crimes which are more heinous. The cries of the babies and Muslim women… has never succeeded in stopping your brutality. Well, here we are the Muslim men! We will harness the pain of the death of our brothers and sisters. You will bear the consequences of your actions wherever you are.
