Car bombing manual surfaces on al-Qaeda websites

A manual teaching would-be ‘holy warriors’ how to carry out a remote-controlled car bomb attack has appeared on al-Qaeda linked websites.

The 13-page manual’s apparent author, Abu Abdullah al-Qureishi, says: “This work of mine is a gift that I am offering to the Islamic nation, especially to Sheikh Bin Laden.”

For the sake of clarity, al-Qureishi says he has divided the ‘manual’ into two parts – electronic and technical aspects.

The manual contains several diagrams and teaches users how to used a remote-controlled device to send a signal to a receiver planted inside the car to be blown up.

“You should use electrical circuits such as those used in aircraft if you find yourself in an enemy country and want to carry out a car bombing.

“But if you find yourself in a Muslim country then you must build the circuits yourself, as well as the device that will receive the signal.

Al-Qureishi invites would-be terrorists or jihadists (holy warriors) to use remote-controlled systems that are usually used to pilot drone aircraft.

The manual’s mechanical section shows a series of pistons. When linked to electrical circuits these press on the accelerator or the brake, depending on the remote-controlled signals they receive, the manual explains.

Diagrams also show how to tamper with a car’s steering column and the ignition.

The manual does not state why car bombings should be carried out remotely. The reason may lie in the scarcity of volunteer suicide bombers underlined in al-Qaeda recruitment videos and the unpopularity of these attacks.

I do hate to make a connection between Terrorists, Islam and Muslims but just to remind those who have forgotten. al-Qaeda is a Sunni Islamic terrorist group. They murder indiscriminately and use terror attacks to target civilians. They attack both Shia Muslims (specifically in Iraq) and non-Muslims.

Whether or not the average moderate Western Muslim agrees or not, there is no denying the facts.

And please do not come forward with claims such as “you’re generalising all Muslims as terrorists”, because you know perfectly well that is not what I said.

Sorry about the bluntness today but do we really want extremists worldwide to know how to attack innocent civilians remotely?
