Der neue Qaida-Krieger und die Comic-Figur Rakan

--- Es gibt mal wieder Neues von der islamistischen Propagandafront und ihrem Hauptquartier, der Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF). Sie hat Ende Oktober ein Strategiepapierchen ver�ffentlicht, das von der society for internet research (sofir) auseinandergenommen wird:
An imaginary person writes the analysis�Rakan ben Williams�or Wilyamz, as the name mistakenly or deliberately is written. The threatening analysis is titled �The next Al-Qaeda soldier.� We don�t know who has in fact written the message, but the name chosen for the �Jihadi super hero��Rakan�reminds us of a legendary Islamic hero of the Middle Ages, who was born in Arabia, and fought against the Mongols in Iraq and Persia. Recently he became a hero of a Middle Eastern comic series as Rakan the �lone warrior.� ... The response of Al-Qaeda to the steps taken by Europe against its Muslims is therefore, to use European citizens�Christian converts to Islam who support global Jihad--in the next attacks. The model is �Rakan ben Wilyamz��born and raised in the West; has studied in its educational system; prayed in their churches; drank alcoholic beverage; ate pork, and hated Muslims. But then he secretly became a devoted Muslim, adopted the philosophy of Al-Qaeda, and now he and his alike are wandering in Europe and the United States, gathering information and planning their next attacks. �Is the West ready for them?� asks Rakan Ben Wilyamz from Europe, who is �thirsty for martyrdom.� ... The attacks against Western targets were not aimed at occupying the West or liberating the Muslim world, but in order to highlight the Western lack of understanding of the Muslim mind; and hence, its inability to wisely respond to the Muslim challenges; the flexibility and wisdom of Al-Qaeda in finding solutions to every situation; and the advantages of the �new generation of Muslims� vis-�-vis the ideological stagnation of the West and its �corrupted culture.� The message was not written just for Western eyes, but for Muslim supporters of global Jihad as well. Rakan Ben Wilyamz is not only the �new secret weapon� of global Jihad, but also a model of �super-hero� for Islamic youth. The fact that the name might have been taken from a comic series, colors it with the heroism of an imaginary figure. Rakan is the Jihadi answer to Superman, Batman, and their colleagues. There is a question of how we should react to this message. How serious is it, beside the propaganda? Do they really plan to use new Muslim converts in their future attacks, especially on Western soil? The message has lot of internal logic of a well-organized plan. The planned strategy of Al-Qaeda is also juxtaposed with the spread of the Muslim empire in the Middle Ages�from Arabia to Indonesia and Europe�through the conversion of many nations to Islam. The publication of the message by GIMF�an integral organ of global Jihad�authenticates its serious nature.
