Oddly, you never hear of Christians hoping their coreligionists carried out a terror attack even though the left assures us they are just as violent as Muslims.
Amidst ongoing media reports of two explosions in the American city of Boston, Massachusetts, near the finish line of the marathon race on April 15, 2013, jihadists expressed their joy and hoped the blasts are acts of jihadi terrorism.
One forum member noted that over a week ago, a jihadist announced his desire to plan bombings in the United States, but was chastised by others for revealing such a plot publicly. He is referring to a posting on the Ansar al-Mujahideen forum on April 1 in which a jihadist tried to recruit members for an attack similar in impact to al-Qaeda’s 9/11 strikes, but seemed focused on the attack being a suicide bombing. In other posts responding to the explosions, on the Ansar al-Mujahideen, al-Fida’ and Shumukh al-Islam forums, jihadists gave pictures circulated in the media of the aftermath, showing injured people and a bloody sidewalk, and some hoped more bombings will follow.
Administrators of Shumukh al-Islam, a top-tier jihadist forum and primary source for official messages from al-Qaeda, placed a two scrolling messages atop the forum, the first stating: “Urgent // Casualties and Injuries in an Explosion that Shook the US State of Boston, and a State of Panic and Chaos Spreads Across America in General,” and the second giving an oft-repeated statement from former al-Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden: “I swear by Allah the Great, who raised the sky without pillars, that America and those who live in America will not dream of security until we live it as a reality in Palestine and until all the disbelieving armies are expelled from the land of Muhammad, Allah’s peace and prayer be upon him.”
Following is a translation of a sampling of the postings:
[Ibn Talha al-Muhajir]
Allah is Great, praise be to Allah.
America is ruined.
[Istakhbarat Dawlat al-Islam]
New York raises its alerts to the highest level.
O Allah, make it by the hands of the mujahideen.
Allah is Great, Allah is Great, Allah is Great.
Allah is Great… Allah is Great… Allah is Great…
O Allah grant victory to Your soldiers and those who carried out the blessed operations in the Cause of Allah the Almighty.
Allah is Great!!!
O Allah, put fear in their hearts and make them die from fear and horror.
[Obada bin al-Samit] !
Peace be upon you, and Allah’s mercy and blessings.
Shall we wait for the “Free” American Army to announce its responsibility for the Boston explosion?!
