Lone terrorists have been instructed to refrain from targeting
churches, mosques and synagogues in order to protect
their ´´reputation,´´ according to the latest edition of the al Qaeda-
affiliated magazine Inspire, reported ANI news agency.
The winter 2012 edition of the magazine revealed that global jihad is
facing criticism from Muslims over how they carry out their attacks.
The magazine revealed, however, that terrorists could attack Jews
congregates, The Age reported. According to the magazine, terrorists
were also urged to target politicians, media personalities, stock
exchanges, airports, harbors and military bases.
The new solo terrorist guidelines are mentioned in an article in the
same edition of the magazine titled ´´The Jihadi Experiences." It
also warns terrorist from targeting women and children, and to avoid
harming civilians of neutral countries, according to the news agency.
´´This must be done in order to maintain the reputation of the
Resistance in the different spheres of public opinion,´´ the article
Last week, The Sunday Age reported that the magazine had named
Australia as a target for terrorism by firebombing.
Terrorism experts believe that the change in policy is due to a
moderate Muslim backlash against violence.
A professor at Macquarie University´s Centre for Policing,
Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism, Clive Williams, said the article
represented the sentiments of letters by Osama bin Laden that were
released this month. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/13/12)
