The men who launched al Qaeda's English-language magazine may have died in a U.S. missile strike last fall, but "Inspire" magazine lives on without them -- and continues to promote jihadi attacks on Western targets, offering detailed advice on how to start huge forest fires in America with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs.
The statement, in Arabic, said that “summer has begun so do not forget the Forest Jihad.”
The writer called on all Muslims in the United States, Europe, Russia and Australia to “start forest fires.”
A U.S. Forest Service official said today there is no evidence that illegal immigrants started some of the wildfires in Arizona, as Sen. John McCain had claimed.
People entering the U.S. illegally from Mexico are believed responsible for more than one-third of human-ignited wildfires in Arizona over a five-year period, according to a government report that could stoke congressional debate over illegal immigration.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said the Government Accountability Office report supports remarks he made earlier this year after his state was hit hard by wildfires. At the time, McCain was accused of "scapegoating" immigrants.
Illegal immigrants are believed to have started 30 of 77 fires that were investigated from 2006 through 2010, according to the report by the GAO, the investigative arm of Congress.
Illegal immigrants started nearly 40 percent of human-ignited wildfires along the border between Arizona and Mexico between 2006 and 2010, according to a government report that gives new credence to claims Arizona lawmakers made earlier this year during catastrophic blazes in the Southwest.
People crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally are suspected to have been responsible for at least 30 wildfires in Arizona between 2006 and 2010, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
“Based on our review of agency investigation reports, illegal border crossers were a suspected cause of ignition for 30 of the 77 [federally] investigated wildland fires, or about 39 percent,” the GAO reported in an audit released Tuesday.
Earlier this year, Sen. John McCain stated a fact – namely, that open borders lead to illegal aliens starting forest fires – and the usual suspects responded with the usual indignation. A new GAO report confirms that McCain was indeed correct.
At a press conference in June, McCain said: "There is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally. The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border."
ABC News claimed that McCain set off a "firestorm."
Amnesty groups said the factual comment amounted to "fanning the flames of intolerance."
La Raza board chairman Daniel Ortega said that McCain "owes it to us to not spread fear and hate."
HOUSTON, Texas -- A group of illegal aliens and their smuggler started a massive grass fire on a ranch in South Texas after being pursued by agents from the U.S. Border Patrol.
The fire began at the end of a chase when the car carrying the illegal aliens left the roadway in what is known as a bailout. The car came to a stop on some dry grass and caught fire from the heat of the exhaust system as the occupants scattered into the brush.

These fanatics are deadly serious and will stoop to any means possible to accomplish the stated goal.
The trouble seems to be that not enough people are aware of the situation and believe the pablum that is fed to them on the network news.
Full-page warnings screaming intent.
Thanks for the comment.
