The third issue (#3) of the English-language jihadi cyber journal Jihad Recollections was published yesterday on the online jihadi discussion forums. The new issue includes several articles of note, including part 3 of a series of articles commemorating the assassinated al-Qa'ida "Central" (AQC) AFPAK commander Abu'l Layth al-Libi (parts 1 and 2 were published in the first two issues of the journal respectively). Also included are the second part of an article criticizing U.S. president Barack Obama's health care plan, an article on "liberation without Islam," highlights from an al-Jazeera interview with AQC senior AFPAK commander Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, an article on the transnational Muslim group Tablighi Jama'at, an article on Carlos Bledsoe, a U.S. Army soldier and convert who murdered a military recruiter in June, and an article on the ongoing guerilla war and jihad in Afghanistan.
Articles analyzing the evolution of AQC's media wing, al-Sahab (The Clouds), and a transcript of Abu Mansur al-Amriki's (Ameriki) "response" to Obama's Cairo speech are also included. The new issue's cover story purports to tell the story of a U.S. soldier who converted to Islam after serving in Iraq.
In-depth analysis of several articles will be published in posts here on Occident beginning tomorrow. Please check back!
