Do you think it is real or is it fake like some people have been saying?
Yes, in my opinion it is an authentic but slightly abbreviated english translation of the original version.
To stay within the TOS allow me to point you to a news article
about it a year
after it was posted in the al-Battar magazine, instead of the original document. So that you know the news is discussing the same document, notice
details like the mention of Daniel Pearl and Shamil Basayev in both the scribd and news document.
Judging by the other posts from that Scribd poster, I would hazard a guess that it was a professional translation done for academic purposes, rather
than to spread the philosophy.
Yes, these docs are studied by academia. For a good example, google Thomas Heggehammer, or CTC at West Point.
