Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula has come out with the 5th issue of its Inspire Magazine. It’s got some more of the same — the wheres and whens of attacking American targets, etc. But interestingly, the issue lays out the case for why Al Qaeda supports the Arab revolutions, leveling the arguments of those who say that the group doesn’t benefit from the general upheaval. It also shows how Al Qaeda sees itself as continuing the jihad begun by the Muslim Brotherhood, but dropped when the MB became interested in elections.
