Islamic State Terror Guide Offers Advice on Taking Hostages and Massacring Crowds

"One should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response."

Hot off the presses from the savages at ISIS is a new issue of their English-language propaganda magazine Rumiyah, featuring a step-by-step guide to murdering infidels, including advice on how to take hostages and massacre large crowds.

Australia's Gold Coast Bulletin reports that the latest edition of Rumiyah also boasts advice on how to lure victims with fake ads on such selling sites as Craigslist and eBay. It tells readers to specify that the product being sold must be picked up in person and paid for in cash. “Upon the target’s arrival, one can then proceed to initiate his attack,” the article states.

Similarly, the magazine encourages wannabe terrorists to take out fake job advertisements to lure targets: “After garnering a significant amount of applicants, one can then arrange the ‘job interview’ location and times, spacing out the applicants appointment times so as to give oneself time to subdue each target as he arrives — luring him to an appropriate location before attacking, subduing, binding and then slaughtering them.”

Advertising an apartment for rent is another potential lure. “The advertisement should be for a small single-room or studio apartment,” the article states. “This will help ensure that the viewer comes alone.”

The article provides helpful suggestions such as beating the victim over the head with a “bat or small club” before slaughtering them with a “strong, sharp knife,” as well as dedicating a room for the “disposal of bodies … for the obvious reason of not alerting those intended victims entering the property after them.”

“Additionally, carrying out this type of operation in the daytime hours will also help in this regard as it allows one to exploit the noise pollution that comes with the movement of people during those hours to drown out any sounds that may be heard as a consequence of one’s attacks,” the article reads.

In case any Muslims question the theological justification for such murderous plans, the magazine reassures them that tricking unsuspecting infidels into believing they are safe before killing them is “divinely approved” by Allah. Apparently ISIS didn't get the memo that Islam is The Religion of Peace.

The issue also encourages large-scale terrorism. Some highlights from the magazine:

The scenario for such an attack as that one assaults a busy, public and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar who are present.

Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response.

Ideal target locations for hostage-taking scenarios include nightclubs, movie theatres, busy shopping malls and large stores, popular restaurants, concert halls, university campuses, public swimming pools, indoor ice-skating rinks, and generally any busy enclosed area, as such an environment allows for one to take control of the situation by rounding up the kuffar present inside and allows one to massacre them while using the building as a natural defence against any responding force attempting to enter and bring the operation to a quick halt.

Similarly, characteristics of a good target location include low light conditions, as it grants one the ability to manoeuvre between the people, taking advantage of the confusion and killing as many of the kuffar as physically possible.

Keep all this in mind the next time the news media like The New York Times attempts to humanize the terrorists with a sympathetic profile or tell you that poverty/alienation/bullying/etc. causes terrorism.
