Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, 2001
(Worthy News) - A top al Qaeda leader urged young Muslim men in Western countries to launch attacks on their own, in an audio message released Sunday.
Ayman al-Zawahri suggested Muslim youth look to the orchestrators of the Boston Marathon bombings and Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris as examples of the kinds of lone-wolf attacks they themselves could carry out. Those attacks were headed up by the Tsarnaev and Kouachi brothers, respectively.
"I call on all Muslims who can harm the countries of the crusader coalition not to hesitate," al-Zawahri said. "We must now focus on moving the war to the heart of the homes and cities of the crusader West and specifically America." [ Source ]
