‘Azan — A Call to Jihad’: New terrorist magazine targets Obama
Question of the Day
A new English-language magazine published online by apparent radical Islamists pictures President Obama with a bull’s-eye on his head, ABC reports.
The magazine, titled, “Azan — A Call to Jihad,” features a full page poster that reads, “Wanted Dead Only. Barack Obama Mass Murderer. Reward: in the Hereafter.”
“Azan” means a call to prayer in Arabic.
The magazine also calls upon the “Ummah,” the community of Muslims worldwide, to hack U.S. drones, identifying drone attacks as “one of the utmost important issues that the Ummah must unite to come up with an answer to,” ABC reports.
According to ABC, the magazine was discovered online on May 5, though the issue itself is dated March 2013. No militant organization has claimed responsibility for the publication yet.
An American intelligence official told ABC that the intelligence community was aware of the publication and that analysts are currently “evaluating Azan as they would any jihadist publication advocating international terrorism.”
