This latest issue of Inspire is noteworthy in that the most prominent personality in the magazine is Hamza bin Laden, son of Osama bin Laden. Hamza bin Laden is emerging as a global leader of Al Qaeda and has specifically vowed to take revenge on the U.S. for killing his father.
Al Qaeda claims that they will be concentrating on targeting Western nations’ transportation infrastructure, seeking to disrupt the movement of people and cargo.
While Al Qaeda says that they will be targeting all aspects of transportation, air, sea and land, as well as local and international, Inspire 17 focuses on rail transport.
As implied by the name “inspire” Al Qaeda seeks to inspire individual Jihadis to take action. They suggest attacking transport vehicles such as trains and aircraft, lines of transport, such as railways, and stations, terminals and transit points, such as train stations, subway terminals and airports.

10. Another Islamic community radio station caught broadcasting incitement to violence against non-Muslims
The radio industry magazine Radio Today reported on the 8th August that Radio Dawn had been found by Ofcom to have broadcast 17 minutes of a ‘nasheed’ -religious devotional song – calling for Muslims to stand on the side of the Taliban. The broadcast went out on 26th December 2016, was in breach of Radio Dawn’s broadcast licence conditions and appeared to be contravening section 3.1 of the Broadcasting Code.
This ordnance forbids radio or TV stations from broadcasting material that would encourage crime, something which many reasonable people would consider pro-Taliban songs be likely to do. Radio Today carried an excerpt from the offending material and it reads as follows:
‘The man who stands against falsehood desires the death of a Mujahid10,
And we have the glorious example of Qasim’s11 cry…
…The whole world on one side and the Taliban on the other.
We are required to salute and honour their display of bravery and steadfastness…
It must be understood that justice will only be handed out at the point of the sword’”.
