Al Qaeda and forest fires


While there is no evidence that the fire currently raging in Colorado was an act of terrorism, or even man-made at all, it is certainly worth reviewing and mentioning that Al Qaeda has repeatedly discussed such action in its literature. Moreover, in Israel, Jihadists have in fact used forest fires as terrorist weapons.

Recently, Al Qaeda’s online magazine, “Inspire,” instructed Al Qaeda followers to set forest fires in the US:

An unclassified report by the Department of Homeland Security indicates Al Qaeda has issued instructions in its terror magazine “Inspire” on how to set wildfires in the United States.

It suggests that using wildfires as a tactic because of its potential for casualties, economic damage, and wide media coverage; and the accompanying psychological effects of fear and terror.

In addition recent posts to English-language violent Islamic extremist Web forums have also encouraged individuals in the United States to start wildfires and given specific instructions on how to do so.

According to the DHS the equipment and materials needed to use fire as a weapon are “common and easily obtainable, making pre-operational activities difficult to detect.”

Montana and California are specifically mentioned as ideal targets for wildfires.

[Editor’s note: This is what I have blogged on a while ago…it doesn’t mean the fires were started by terrorists, but it does show that there is a great possibility for it to happen, like when the terrorist was arrested in 2003 for plotting to start a string of forest fires in California. With the Western United States under a severe drought, and, for instance, the High Park fire being believed to have started from when lightning struck a tree that smoldered for a few days with the dryness and heat we have had the last few months…that is the reported cause for this fire, but, as the DHS stated, actual terrorist, criminal activities that have resulted in wild fires are hard to detect. If you are in dry fielded or mountainous areas, and see suspicious acting people, please call 911.]
