New AQAP Magazine Calls For Lone-Wolf Attacks Against U.S. And U.K.

aqap-aqsa-we-are-coming-inspire

Back cover of the AQAP pub­li­ca­tion, “Pales­tine: Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience”

Al Qaeda in the Ara­bian Penin­sula (AQAP) issued a new English-language mag­a­zine on Twit­ter August 16. Titled “Pales­tine: Betrayal of the Guilty Con­science,” the pub­li­ca­tion uses the recent con­flict in Gaza as an excuse to renew the group’s call for lone-wolf attacks in the U.S. and the U.K.

AQAP has reg­u­larly issued such calls for lone-wolf attacks in the past, includ­ing just a few days ago when it urged fol­low­ers to attack the U.S. in retal­i­a­tion for mil­i­tary assis­tance in Iraq.

The mag­a­zine, which reuses con­tent from AQAP’s Inspire mag­a­zine, includes direc­tions for build­ing pres­sure cooker bombs and car bombs and sug­gests a new list of poten­tial tar­gets includ­ing Israeli, British and Amer­i­can owned com­pa­nies, tourist resorts fre­quented by Amer­i­can, British and Israeli cit­i­zens, Las Vegas casi­nos and night clubs, Geor­gia Mil­i­tary Col­lege, the US Air Force Acad­emy, Gen­eral Atom­ics head­quar­ters in San Diego, and Marks and Spencer stores in Britain.

For more infor­ma­tion about this pub­li­ca­tion, see the ADL analy­sis “AQAP Exploits Gaza Con­flict to Call for Lone-Wolf Attacks Against U.S.”

ADL has also writ­ten exten­sively about the  influ­ence posed by such online English-language pro­pa­ganda on would-be domes­tic extrem­ists and the ensu­ing threat it poses to domes­tic security.

Iran Holds Gaza Exhibition, Cartoon And Caricature Contest

Iran’s House of Car­toon, a pro­fes­sional artist guild spon­sored by the munic­i­pal­ity of Tehran, announced the open­ing of an inter­na­tional car­toon con­test on the “Israeli war on Gaza,” which has drawn sub­mis­sions from artists around the world of car­toons and car­i­ca­tures with anti-Semitic and Holo­caust imagery.

The exhibit, called Inter­na­tional Gaza Car­toon Exhibit 2014, will run from August 12 to August 28 at the Pales­tine Museum of Con­tem­po­rary Art in the Iran­ian capital.The exhibit is also pro­mot­ing  and fea­tur­ing a car­toon and car­i­ca­ture com­pe­ti­tion, dubbed “From Adolf Netanyahu to Ben­jamin Hitler,” that will award cash prizes for the best depic­tion of Israel’s mil­i­tary offen­sive against Hamas tar­gets in Gaza. Accord­ing to Masoud Sho­jaei Tabatabaie, the direc­tor of the House of Car­toon, the com­pe­ti­tion has received sub­mis­sions from a num­ber of coun­tries, includ­ing Brazil, Cuba, Lebanon, Ger­many and Spain.

The House of Cartoon’s announce­ment said that the car­toon por­tion of the con­test will focus on four sub­jects: “Silence of Media and Inter­na­tional Asso­ci­a­tions, Geno­cide and Killing Baby in Gaza [sic], Trea­son and Accom­pany of Arab League, Great Satan (USA).” In addi­tion, there will also be a car­i­ca­ture con­test with themes such as “Adolf Netanyahu!” and “Ben­jamin Hitler!” as well as car­i­ca­tures of world lead­ers Iran­ian lead­ers have accused of tak­ing Israel’s side in the Gaza con­flict, includ­ing King Abdul­lah of Saudi Ara­bia, Fran­cois Hol­lande of France, David Cameron of Britain, and Angela Merkel of Germany.

David Duke Exploits Gaza Situation With New Video

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke, pre­sent­ing him­self as a “peace activist” and an unbi­ased “his­to­rian” has cre­ated a new exploitive video on the war in Gaza. Duke uses the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza to pro­mote his own vir­u­lent brand of anti-Semitism and attempt to win sympathizers.david-duke-gaza-video

In the video titled, “Israeli Geno­cide in Gaza,” Duke accuses Israel of “bar­baric” mass mur­der and geno­cide. He also alleges that the media and politi­cians are con­trolled by Zion­ists who pur­posely mis­lead the public.

Iron­i­cally, Duke claims to be a his­to­rian “who likes to expose hypocrisy, decep­tion and manip­u­la­tion.” Yet he uses all three to paint Jews as mur­der­ers, liars and thieves. Duke also rep­re­sents him­self as a cham­pion of the Pales­tini­ans despite hav­ing been an active white suprema­cist for decades.

The real objec­tive of Duke’s video, which has received almost 32,000 views on YouTube, is to demo­nize Jews and to pro­mote the idea that Jews con­trol Amer­ica. At the end of the video, Duke exclaims, “Free Pales­tine and free Amer­ica and free the world from Zion­ist lies and tyranny.”

In addi­tion to the video on the sit­u­a­tion in Gaza, Duke has been try­ing to raise money to pub­lish “The Illus­trated Pro­to­cols of Zion,” a ver­sion of the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic work that accuses Jews of a world­wide plot to con­trol the world.
