The latest issue of AQAP’s Inspire magazine has been released. It includes new strategies like bombing buildings, and articles lauding the most recent European attacks. Anwar al-Awlaki reemerges from a media vacation with a call to steal Western property and money to use for foreign jihad. The Awalik clan, the extended family of Anwar al-Awlaki, also appears to be more involved in this most recent issue as well. American expat Samir Khan also gets central billing with his take on how Jihad went from defensive to offensive. The magazine is graphically sophisticated and touches the Yemeni jihad against Shia Muslims, as well as the usual calls for violence against the West.
