A “direct and specific threat” was made against the First Baptist Dallas church — with photo and address — in the latest issue of ISIS’s online magazine, Rumiyah, in the article, "Just Terror Tactics," which calls on Jihadis to fire bomb places where infidels gather, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor, which discovered the 5th issue of Rumiyah Friday.
The First Baptist Dallas church is "a popular Crusader gathering place waiting to be burned down,” says the caption under a photo of the church.
Earlier this month, the Telegram channel of Lone Mujahid, “which frequently calls for lone wolf attacks in the West and periodically provides various methods for launching such attacks, posted several threats to the US along with instructions on building pressure cooker bombs and manufacturing chemicalweapons,” MEMRI said.
On January 3, the channel published a poster that included cursory instructions on manufacturing a chemical weapon, noting the dissemination of "disease[-inducing] and chemical gases completely paralyzes life in vital [enemy] areas.”
The Rumiyah article said, “Throughout history and until the present day, incendiary attacks have played a significant role in modern and guerilla warfare, as well as in ‘lone wolf’ terrorism. Such attacks have been behind the destruction of towns, neighborhoods, and public, private and governmental property, while likewise claiming numerous lives."
“Recently, on 15 Safar 1438AH, a soldier of the Khilafah stationed in Russia taught the despicable Crusaders a lesson on just how destructive an operation of such simplicity can be, successfully burning down a 3-story furniture factory in its entirety, as well as a chemical factory adjacent to it, both located in Losino-Petrovsky, a town northeast of Moscow. The fire was initiated on the ground floor, where it subsequently spread to the remaining floors and the neighboring buildings and continued to burn for three whole days, causing great financial losses for the Russian Crusaders,” the articled stated.
“Likewise, the whole world witnessed the devastating fires that ravaged Jewish settlements in Palestine, destroying around 700 Jewish homes. Irrespective of the motive, this deliberate act of destruction demonstrated the lethality of such an effortless operation,” the article continued, adding, “The attacks likewise demonstrate that with some simple and readily accessible materials (i.e. flammables), one can easily terrorize an entire nation. This is a quick option for anyone intending to join the just terror campaign.”
“Arson, as it applies to the just terror mujahid, is to initiate fires by using flammables to destroy the property of the Crusaders and, in some cases, kill several of them, sending them from the fire of this world to the inferno of Hellfire. All that is required of the mujahid is to acquire the flammable he wishes to use, select his target, and determine the best time for execution,” the article said.
Continuing, the Rumiyah article stated, “Because many flammables are a part of everyday living, arson attacks are extremely difficult to prevent. Indeed, no more than a large container of gasoline (petrol) is needed for a successful attack. Of course, the gasoline can be acquired from any local gas station, where it is filled into the container. This procedure should not arouse any suspicion, as it is quite common to follow, especially when obtaining gas for a lawnmower, amongst other reasons.”
The article told Jihadis that, “Ideal target locations for arson include houses and apartment buildings, forest areas adjacent to residential areas, factories that produce cars, furniture, clothing, flammable substances, etc., gas stations, hospitals, bars, dance clubs, night clubs, banks, car showrooms, schools, universities, as well as churches, Rafidi temples, and so forth.
The options are vast, leaving no excuse for delay.”
Calling for “multiple simultaneous attacks,” the article stated, “Ideally, one should strive to maximize the just terror he inflicts, by executing multiple, simultaneous attacks, while following the same guidelines.”
Disturbingly, the article stressed, “Arson attacks should in no way be belittled. They cause great economic destruction and emotional havoc and can be repeated very easily. Even if such attacks do not always result in the killing of the enemies, Allah has promised to reward the mujahid for simply harming and enraging them. ‘That is because they are not afflicted by thirst or fatigue or hunger in thecause of Allah, nor do they tread on any ground that enrages the kuffar, nor do they inflict upon an enemy any harm but that is registered for them as a righteous deed. Indeed, Allah does not allow the reward of good doers to be lost’ (At-Tawbah 120).”
