In keeping with the Islamic State modus operandi of putting out calls to terrorism as well as methods of doing so, the Islamic State now asks for Muslims to attack random people at beaches, forests, quiet areas in the newest edition of its magazine, "Rumiyah."
A new magazine issued by the Islamic State advises lone jihadists to get over any squeamishness about using knives and embrace sharp objects as "widely available" weapons of jihad in nighttime stabbing campaigns.
ISIS' Al-Hayat Media Center issued the second issue of its magazine Rumiyah, meaning Rome, in English, Turkish, German, French, Indonesian, Russian, Arabic and Uyghur. [...] In the first issue of Rumiyah, which debuted a month ago, jihadists were advised to target teens playing sports after school or even flower sellers hawking blooms on the street.
A very revealing paragraph from the magazine, and one that explains a great deal of Islamic ritual, is the following:
"Many people are often squeamish of the thought of plunging a sharp object into another person’s flesh. It is a discomfort caused by the untamed, inherent dislike for pain and death, especially after 'modernization' distanced males from partaking in the slaughtering of livestock for food and the striking of the enemy in war," However, any such squirms and discomforts are never an excuse for abandoning jihad."
According to Pajamas Media, the article also contains recommendations on how to carry out a knife attack.
