Al-Qaida Launches Terrorism Magazine, Resurgence

LONDON, (UPI) — An English-language magazine from al-Qaida seeks to exploit a sense of depravity from Muslims living in Western society, a terrorism analyst said.

Al-Qaida posted a video on You Tube announcing a new magazine dubbed Resurgence. It uses a speech from Malcolm X to appeal to an English-speaking audience.

“You can’t ever reach a man if you don’t speak his language,” the narration says. “If a man speaks the language of brute force, you can’t come to him with peace.”

Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism expert at Swedish National Defense College, told the British newspaper the Daily Telegraph the tone of the You Tube video is aimed at exploiting social tensions in Western cultures.

“Its simplicity appeals in many ways,” he said in an interview published Monday. “It focuses on the raw emotions of victim-hood in the Muslim world which reinforces the al-Qaida narrative that the West is aggressively at war with Islam.”

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the Yemeni branch of the terrorist group, publishes an English-language pamphlet dubbed Inspire. ABC News reported Sunday the AQAP magazine was used by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev to build the explosive devices used in last April’s attack on the Boston Marathon, which left three dead and more than 250 people injured.
