"Pray, pray, Allah is great. America is destroyed by a fatal jihadist

Is it a coded message? An attempt to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah" (Qur'an 8:60)? Or something more?

"Terrorism: New al-Qaeda video calls for nuclear strike," by Hamza Boccolini for AKI, May 27 (thanks to Sr. Soph): Dubai, 27 May (AKI ) -- A new video called "Nuclear Terrorism" has been posted on the worldwide web calling for jihadists to use nuclear or chemical weapons to strike the west....

"Strike civilians in the west without mercy using weapons of mass destruction" is one of the calls made in the 39-minute video.

The question now being asked is whether the video is presenting a coded message or signalling an imminent terrorist attack.

Before the video was posted on the Arab internet forum Ekhlas a banner headline appeared on the website that said: "Pray, pray, Allah is great. America is destroyed by a fatal jihadist nuclear strike."

Clicking on the banner gives the viewer access to a documentary which shows diverse images - from al-Qaeda speeches to western documentaries and other Islamist videos.

The objective appears to be to incite followers of al-Qaeda to use weapons of mass destruction to strike the west, but there may be more to it.

The video opens with two verses of the Koran that emphasise "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". It then says "Fight them until there is no more persecution and Allah is the only object of worship. If they desist, there will be no hostility, except against those who are dishonest."

"Attack those who attack you. Fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him."

Thanks Jihad Watch
