    Jihad Magazine Lists US Tennis Open as Terrorist Target

    Jihad Magazine Lists US Tennis Open as Terrorist Target

    Police warn that the upcoming US Open Tennis Championships to be held at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York may be a potential terrorist target after appearing on a wish list of terror targets in the Spring 2014 edition of Inspire, an online magazine published by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

    In the article, Car Bomb in America, in the most recent edition of Inspire, contains detailed instructions on how to build a car bomb and specifically advises to place the bomb at large, densely populated gatherings instead of in buildings.“This type of car bomb is used to kill individuals and not buildings. Therefore, look for a dense crowd.”

    The instructions on creating a bomb in Inspire are part of what the authors of the magazine call “open source jihad,” which enables terrorists to train for jihad-related activities at home rather than having to travel abroad. According to Inspire, open source jihad provides “a resource manual for those who loathe the tyrants; includes bomb making techniques, security measures, guerilla tactics, weapons training and all other jihad related activities.”

    Among the suggested targets of this particular car bomb were tennis stadiums, since “they are visited by thousands of people, and high profile people, especially the US Open.”

    ...
    This is just one example of the true and real threat to the US.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    We should stop supporting militant Islamic groups as a matter of policy in the ME, if we view them as threatening.

    Of course we should. However, that will not stop them. And, ISIS and AQAP (which is where this comes from) have more than enough asset to do this and almost anything else they want without our help. What you describe will not in any way stop or reduce the threat to us or remove the mentality that we are their enemy.

    I hope you realize the reason I didn't respond to you in the other thread was because your posts to me were before you got to my post in that thread that explained your other questions and comments.

    Didn't you get the Memo? Al Qaeda is decimated - Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive. Cmon, man, get with the program. The Smartest President Ever solved that rubix cube in, like, his first thirty days in office, or something.

    Yes I did see that in the other thread. And I'm glad we agree that we should stop supporting terrorist groups, and I also agree that that alone wouldn't stop ISIS sense Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia are supporting them.

    Facts a rhetoric very often do not align, especially with the current Administration.

    I'd take it a step further that we should stop supporting ANY group in the Middle East. That region is waaay to hot right now and I wouldn't trust ANY group there at this time.

    I'm not going to be arguing with that.

    The problem is that we support people who don't seem threatening at the time. People like Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. At the time, they were threatening people we don't like. So it's ok to give money and weapons to terrorists if they pinky promise to attack our enemies.

    I think that that was my point.
