Flashback: Al-Qaeda ‘Inspire’ magazine: How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom

A source is reporting to media that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon Bombings were what is called a “Pressure Cooker Bomb“.  We first heard of these type of bombs in and 2010  Al-Qaeda ‘Inspire’ magazine article: “How to Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom”

Its tag-line is “Inspire the Believers” and its first front page features a quotation by the radical Yemeni-American cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki: “May our souls be sacrificed for you”.

The full magazine is not yet online, but the contents page offers messages from both Osama bin Laden and his second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri. It also advertises a piece by Awlaki entitled: “Shaykh Anwar’s message to the American people and Muslims in the West”.

Other articles include a question-and-answer session with the leader of AQAP, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, also known by his nom de guerre, Abu Basir, and a tantalising piece offering a “detailed yet short, easy-to-read manual on how to make a bomb using ingredients found in a kitchen”.

It says the title comes from a Koranic verse “Inspire the believers to fight”. “It is jihad that gives this nation life,” its Letter from the Editor states. “We survive through jihad and perish without it.”

      1. What I’m saying is that I don’t believe this stuff is on the net.
        If it is,where is it.
        I hate all the scaremongering that goes on.
