ISIS Begins Promoting Knife Attacks [VIDEO]

When you can’t get out and commit jihad with a gun, ISIS wants its followers to start picking up knives. They have a new magazine that is doubling as an instruction manual for all of those “lone wolves” out there to go out and commit some mayhem against the “infidel.”

ISIS’ Al-Hayat Media Center issued the second issue of its magazine Rumiyah, meaning Rome, in English, Turkish, German, French, Indonesian, Russian, Arabic and Uyghur. The design of the magazine is more simple than ISIS’ English-language Dabiq. It’s also much shorter: 38 pages compared to the 82 pages in the last issue of Dabiq.

In the new PDF issue distributed widely via social media and Google Drive, an article on terror tactics assures would-be jihadists that “one need not be a military expert or a martial arts master, or even own a gun or rifle in order to carry out a massacre or to kill and injure several disbelievers and terrorize an entire nation.”

A footnote in the article states that ISIS won’t be using the term “lone wolf,” but “just terror operations” — “just” as an adjective for “justice.” Al-Qaeda calls lone operations “open-source jihad.”

Hinting that the article is one in a forthcoming series about terror tactics, ISIS focused on the benefits of knives to help potential terrorists with the “ocean of thoughts” that “might pour into one’s mind” when considering an attack.

“Many people are often squeamish of the thought of plunging a sharp object into another person’s flesh. It is a discomfort caused by the untamed, inherent dislike for pain and death, especially after ‘modernization’ distanced males from partaking in the slaughtering of livestock for food and the striking of the enemy in war,” the unbylined article states. “However, any such squirms and discomforts are never an excuse for abandoning jihad.”

ISIS suggested a “campaign of knife attacks” in which the attacker “could dispose of his weapon after each use, finding no difficulty in acquiring another one.”


Welcome to the era of “open-source jihad.” It sounds like a bad computer programming joke. But it isn’t. We have seen knife attacks already, and another one just happened in Belgium.

A 43-year old Belgian man stabbed one officer in the neck and the other in the abdomen in the north-east of the Belgian capital on Wednesday and then fled the scene.

The assailant was stopped by a second group of police officers. He broke the nose of one officer, who shot him in the leg.

The federal prosecutor’s spokesman, Eric Van Der Sypt, said: “We have reason to believe that it is terror-related.” He declined to provide details or explain why prosecutors suspected the attack was linked to terrorism.

Remember that a knife is much more easily concealed than a gun. Remember that the Minnesota mall attack was stopped by an off-duty cop and firearms instructor who was armed and ready. He has just been cleared for his use of deadly force. Be prepared. Be AWARE. If you can get a concealed weapons permit, get one and prepare yourself. Do not allow yourself to be a sitting target.

We are now in a moment where situational awareness is called for at all times. What stops the next terrorist from simply picking up a butcher knife and a baseball bat, and then going to a soccer field on a Saturday morning where kids are playing? We do not live in a “safe” world. Prepare accordingly.

    What? You mean all those kids aren’t black belts in Tae-Kwon-Do, too?

    As populous as my area is, and full of opportunities to strike at the infidel, I think the massive presence of veterans and active-duty here, combined with the gun culture, prevents anyone from seriously thinking they could achieve much.

    However, the constant blue pressure from the northern end of the dominion, pouring out of the cesspit that is D.C., will change that ultimately.
