Al-Qaeda calls for ‘lone wolf’ attacks on UK airlines

Al-Qaeda is ramping up the stakes in the race to be the premier Islamic terror organisation.

ISIS has seriously dented their mosque cred but they are now suggesting to lone wolf terrorists to go and attack prominent British targets like British Airways, EasyJet and praising recent terror attacks.

Police and security services are investigating an Al-Qaeda magazine which calls for ‘lone wolf’ terrorists to blow up easyJet and British Airways planes using bombs made in their kitchens.

The chilling and widely-reported call to arms says high-profile airlines should be targeted in a bid to gain headlines and ‘crush the enemy’s economy’.

Released on Christmas Eve, the disturbing publication names British Airways because it is the ‘flag carrier airline of the United Kingdom’ and the largest airline by number of planes.

Budget carrier easyJet is equally targeted because it ‘is a low cost carrier, hence has a large number of passengers.’

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘We are aware of this publication and the police and security agencies are taking appropriate action. National security and protecting the public is our priority.

‘Our comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy includes measures to remove terrorist material hosted online, prevent radicalisation and protect the UK from acts of terrorism.’

Also targeted in the publication, which is called Inspire and has been widely reported by news outlets around the world, are Air France and U.S. carriers American Airlines, United and Delta alongside high-profile U.S. figures Bill Gates and Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke.

Continental Airlines is also singled out despite the fact that it stopped flying planes under its name two years ago after merging with United to form United Continental Holdings.   

The English language magazine praises Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the so-called ‘underpants bomber’ who was jailed for life in 2012 after he tried to bomb a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.

The 300 people on board were saved partly because the bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully, prosecutors said at the time.

The latest edition has been published four years after the first issue of Inspire contained a notorious explosives guide called Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.

The guide was suspected to have been the template for explosives which killed three and injured more than 250 in last year’s Boston Marathon bombings.

Its author was dubbed the ‘Al-Qaeda chef’, and an extremist assuming the same name was interviewed in the new edition as it claimed the Boston attacks were a ‘natural reaction’ to the ‘arrogance’ of the U.S.

He said the ‘first priority’ for any of his terrorists would be the U.S., ‘then the United Kingdom, then France and so on.’

And he called for the rise of the ‘lone wolf’ jidahist, saying: ‘It is hard to uncover, because none knows him but Allah. He has no relationship with any group or any individuals.’

The magazine also praised a violent axe attack on a group of New York city policemen in October as a ‘splendid’ example of a ‘lone wolf’.

U.S. Navy veteran Zale Thompson was shot dead in the street after the brutal hatchet attack, which the FBI confirmed last month it was considering as an act of terror.

FBI director James Comey said Thompson had been watching Islamic State beheading videos and other radical jihadist material online, adding there is ‘no doubt that played a role’ in the attack.

‘There is no doubt it was terrorism,’ he added.

Is anyone in any doubt that Islamic terror organisation are actually serious and in need of eradication not hugs and cuddles?

  • Alright

    In answer to your last question: if anyone is in doubt they are brain dead.

    The English and the French have merrily been giving away their countries in some sort of post colonialism apologetic PC self flagellation for the last 30 odd years now.
    Their rampant unchecked immigration laws and constant kowtowing to the lowest common denominator have made this inevitable.
    These are the same people that have surrendered Christmas to these maggots.
    They have now hit the point of “Render unto Caesar” and their flagship airlines are prime candidates for these ungrateful little mongrels.

    It is well past time we took a good long look at our own whiny little PC agendas and addressed some of the issues already festering here.
    A drive through Mt Roskill and Avondale would educate many of our law makers.

    • Michael_l_c

      Try driving along Stoddard Rd from Richardson Rd, Mt Roskill, Ak. A mosque just down the road with corresponding local population. It really is another world.

      • Wallace Westland

        Drive? I had to walk it recently for a project I’m involved in. And more than once.
        I spend a reasonable amount of time on the ground and in every part of Auckland. I’ve had men wearing turbans say to me “You look like you in wrong place” In a sly little whisper too once that I nearly missed.(Main street of Otahuhu)
        I’m not a huge man, don’t look like a thug (although I am white and therefore obviously I’m one of the oppressors of freedom and creator of child poverty) and I’m not exactly going to win top prize in the gym unless it’s the beer skol but I’m not small and I’m very very confidant, I often have a steel bar on me for work reasons.
        A quick rotate of nearly a meter of steel bar from carrying to holding will make most people re think where I’m allowed to be.

        When you next go to London, ride to Marble Arch tube station. When you get out of the station on Oxford Street, turn right, cross the next road, and you will be at the corner of Edgeware Road, right opposite Marble Arch and the West End and Hyde Park. Walk down Edgeware Road, and you’ll think you’re in an Arab country with their cafes and shops. They dress like Arabs too. But to their credit, they don’t harass whiteys.

  • Bombastic

    The Muslimists really are kicking off at the moment, this lone wolf call to arms will have every “mentally unwell” (that’s just about every Mohammed and the goat he rode in on addled with Islam) acting out. I don’t think I’ll be a pedestrian in Avondale any time soon.

    Edit: corrected suburb, but you know what I mean

  • How did the discussion go you think?

    “How can we make it look like the west is persecuting all people of Islam”
    “We could try and get everybody of middle eastern origin banned from flying?”
    “That would work, but could we get all middle eastern airlines banned from flights into western countries too?
    “We should try that, any suggestions how?”
    “How about we advertise in an english language al Quada magazine instructions on how to make a bomb at home & tell the members how to set it off on a plane?”
    “But to make it most effective we should specify which airlines.”
    “We’ll get lots of converts like that I’m sure.”

    F**ken geniuses. How did these peoples ancestors ever have the brain power tp preserve and develop ancient Greek & Roman thought.

    To be fair, AQ central, and AQAP have been promoting the lone wolf type attack for some time, with land and air transport a target of particular focus in Europe and North America. But whats missing from the picture? El Al airlines fly to about 25 destinations in Europe including France and the UK, 4 cities in the United States with Boston being added next year, several in East Asia and a couple in Africa, and yet no suggestion of trying to target them..I wonder why?, so maybey its time airlines got serious about having air marshals on all flights like El Al, do. I would feel better knowing there was a crack shot former Sayeret Matkal ready to deal with any funny business on my flights. I realise this has huge implications of cost and logistics but surely its worth consideration for ‘higher risk’ carriers.

  • Pharmachick

    That’s enough. Has anyone else had enough? I cannot go to Riyadh and open a bar … so why should these people be able to come to NZ or Aus or the UK and have “muslim” schools? We have education systems in these western countries, if you want to come to them, then you have to integrate.

    As for targeting airlines … sigh … mongrels – more “security” will be enacted (at what costs to the tax payer one wonders).

    Leaving out the nuclear option (please, please, please) – perhaps a carpet bombing of selected parts of Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq are in order (?? I dunno I’m just tired and angry).

    • Isherman

      Yeah, you could carpet bomb those sorts of places, and achieve little, because the folks you need to worry about already live in Birmingham, Paris, Berlin and Sydney and unfortunately its those places where the battles need to be won.

        I was in Australia at the time of 9/11, and we were told over the media that there were street celebrations around the Lakemba mosque in Sydney.

    I frequently transit through Dubai. It stands out as having a very lazy approach to security screening carry on bags of arriving transit passengers – bearing in mind Emirates flys to some pretty dodgy places. On more than one occasion I have seen 1/2 a dozen carry on bags go through the x-ray while the bloke who should be looking at it is chatting with his co workers. I suspect the security workers are temporary immigrant labour.

    I am always arriving at either 4am (when the staff appear to still be asleep) or 9pm (when clearly they are bored). ..

    • Pharmachick

      Ha ha ha … up until recently, I travelled through Cairo regularly – always at 11pm or 4am … ditto!

  • cows4me

    Time to roll out the nukes, one plane, one bomb on a venue with a high infestation of these scumbags.

    • Wallace Westland


      • cows4me

        A daisy cutter might be a better choice for Birmingham, no fall out.

  • steve and monique

    Close the gates in and out already! Enough pandering to these scumbags from Hell itself

  • unitedtribes

    Im ready for this. If not now its coming. The biggest threat the West has ever faced, We can’t wait for the Huggers to be proved wrong we need to act now.

    • Kevin

      Isn’t funny how Islamists are not an immediate existential threat yet climate change is and we must act now?

      • unitedtribes


  • Dog Breath

    Yet in tonights TV1 news the actual threat to NZ is described as an exagaration. Who feels we are now playing Russian Roulette.

    • Albert Lane

      Well, when we get NZ stirrers of hatred like John Minto, who can blame NZ Muslims for thinking he’s a modern-day messiah? Why Minto hasn’t been put away for inciting racial hatred, beats me.

  • waldopepper

    why dont the western countries just say “look, we’ve had enough and we’ve given you every chance to integrate and accept our country. you haven’t. so to hell with you. next terrorist attack in our country and and we are evicting all muslims – period ! “. would you want to be the next terrorist ?. their plan is to attack western democracies from within and use our laws and freedoms against us. but thats impossible if they all get kicked out.

      Having lived in the U.K. for a long time I know the Brits are very tolerant, but push them once too far and you would want to be out of there pretty quick if you are Mr Nasty.

      • Albert Lane

        I visit the UK quite often, and from my observations, and reading their newspapers on-line every day, it wouldn’t take much to stir the poms to direct anger. It’s already starting in Germany, and the Dutch are getting angry too. I just wish that all branches of Islam had identifiable leaders who would guide their respective flocks into a decent and moral life. But they don’t have such leaders, and a small percentage of Muslims have agendas more suited to the jungle than to civilised countries.
