Al Qaeda has published the latest issue of its jihadist recruitment magazine Inspire, which includes a handy, up-to-date list of all the people they hate the most. Published under the heading, "Wanted: Dead Or Alive for Crimes Against Islam," the magazine includes the nine men and two people they've targeted as their biggest enemies. In case you're not clear on what they want, exactly, the list also includes an image of one of the wanted, Koran-hating pastor Terry Jones, being shot in the head. Beneath that is the caption, "Yes We Can: A Bullet A Day Keeps the Infidel Away."
More than half the names on the list (a couple of which are misspelled) are related to various cartoon controversies that date back to 2005, when the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed. It also include two famous Dutch politicians who have been openly critical of Islam, the man who spread the notorious "Innocence of Islam" video, Jones, and of course, Salman Rushdie.
If you're noticing a common theme, it's that these are not people who have killed Muslims or even waged war on al Qaeda directly. No, the greatest crime imaginable is insulting the Prophet Mohammed, which most—if not all—of these people would gladly admit to being guilty of. Presidents Obama and Bush will have to wait their turn.
