ISIS Gives New Meaning to Craigslist Killers, Lures Hostages by…

Craigslist is already known for it’s controversial ‘appointments with death’.

Now, ISIS is bringing a new meaning to the phrase Craigslist Killers.

In an issue of Rumiyah, Islamic State online magazine, these terror swine published a ‘how to’ tutorial on the best ways to take hostages.

Previously they’ve written tutorials on vehicleknife and arson attacks as a tool of lone jihad. Now in their ‘Just Terror Tactics’ series, they’re encouraging terrorists to get a cache of guns (at shows and shops) and take hostages “to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can.”

The wanna-be jihadists are told, taking prisoners is “not to hold large numbers of the kuffar hostage in order to negotiate one’s demands,” but to sow terror with “the language of force, the language of killing, stabbing and slitting throats, chopping off heads, flattening them under trucks, and burning them alive, until they give the jizyah [tax] while they are in a state of humiliation.”

Rumiyah has praised the lone jihadists all around the world, including US terrorists, calling their attacks ‘heroic examples’.

According to PJMedia: “The scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public, and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar [disbelievers] 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, as was outstandingly demonstrated by the mujahidin who carried out the Bataclan theatre massacre during the course of the blessed Paris raid,” the article instructs.

Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen “superbly demonstrated this scenario” of taking hostages simply to delay police while killing them “when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites.”

The terror publication, which shouldn’t even be allowed on the internet, suggested ways for the jihadists to acquire their cache of weapons…

In the United States, “anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales – by way of private dealers – with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license,” ISIS states. “And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.”

They include a picture of an unidentified gun show with the caption, “Gun conventions represent an easier means of arming oneself for an attack.”

Jihadists are advised to refrain from casually asking people where they can get guns, lest they end up “bringing upon oneself unnecessary suspicion.”

Another suggestion for gun acquisition in the ISIS article is staging a ram-and-grab burglary driving a car into a gun shop when it’s closed.

Statements like this alone should make the case for profiling and immigration restrictions.

After instructing the jihadists how to get the weapons they need, it is suggested areas to target to get hostages.

Another suggested lure is advertising a studio apartment for rent, small enough not “attract large families,” and capture and kill the interested tenants. “It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students,'” ISIS adds.

Jihadists are also encouraged to place some stuff for sale on “buy and sell websites such as Craigslist, Gumtree, eBay, the Loot, and others” and “specify that collection and payment is only available in person and that only cash is accepted. Also, the item being advertised should be something that requires the victim to enter one’s property.”

“It is likewise important to be realistic when advertising and not advertise something far below its valued price, as this can attract the attention of authorities searching for stolen goods or possibly attract other suspicions,” the article states.

Some suggested public places were malls, movie theaters, nightclubs, ice-skating rinks, restaurants and college campuses. The jihadists were instructed to look for lowly lit areas with high traffic, which “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 defense against any responding force attempting to enter and bring the operation to a quick halt.”

Attacks with fewer jihadists involved were encouraged to pick a target with fewer exits.

It is terrifying to think that such propaganda is allowed to exist on the internet, but since it is there we must use it for our defense.

People, stay armed! The meaning of self-defense takes on a heavier load when we are dealing with demonic human beings like these.
