Anwar Al-Awlaki Tells Muslims to Steal from Non-Muslims

January 18, 2011

January 18 2011-Militant Islam Monitor -US born terrorist Anwar Al -Awlaki has been sentenced to 10 years in absentia by the Yemeni government for inciting to murder. In a recent posting for Al Qaeda he told his followers that Muslims can steal from "non believers" especially Americans for the sake of jihad. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/141805

The Long War Journal quotes Al- Awlaki's writings in the radical Inspire magazine.

"Rather than the Muslims financing their jihad from their own pockets, they should finance it from the pockets of their enemies," Awlaki wrote. He advised followers to "avoid targeting citizens of countries where the public opinion is supportive of some of the Muslim causes." Instead, they should target government-owned property, banks, global corporations and "wealth belonging to disbelievers with known animosity towards Muslims."

"In the case of the United States, both the government and private citizens should be targeted." www.longwarjournal.org

Al -Awlaki is suspected of hiding in Yemen where he heads the local wing of Al Qaeda.
