The extremist group of Islamic State (ISIS) urged its followers in the West to pretend to be Christians before carrying out terrorist attacks.
The group released a new 58-page terror pamphlet titled “Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen”, instructing its adherents on how to “bring victory to Islam”.
“We present you this modest work for lone wolf Mujahideen and small cells of brothers who want to bring victory to this religion. This is originally a series of lecture in 30 parts by Aby Abdallah al-Adam (rahimahullah) about safety & security in Jihadi work. It was initially meant for Mujahideen groups (organizations) and not lone wolves, but we have tried to adapt it and pick what’s important and leave what’s not relevant for an individual Mujahid and small groups,” the pamphlet’s intro reads.
The Islamic State provides in its new release suggestions for Western terrorists, including shaving beards, forgoing religious clothing and wearing crucifix necklaces.
“It is permissible in such cases for you to wear a necklace showing a Christian cross,” the radical group advises its followers in the West. “As you know, Christians (or even atheist Westerners with Christian background) wear crosses on their necklaces. But don’t wear a cross necklace if you have a Muslim name on your passport, as that may look strange.” Read the full story here.
