Islamist Al-Hesbah Website Plan of Action for the Jihad Fighter: How to
Kill a Westerner in the Arabian Peninsula

On August 4, 2006, the Al-Hesbah website published instructions on "How to
Kill a Crusader in the Arabian Peninsula." The document was signed by Amer
Al-Najdi, and dated June 15, 2006.

Al-Najdi instructs his readers in some possible ways to kill a Westerner, from
choosing the victim through following him through the stage of the actual

The following are excerpts from the document: [1]
"Before Carrying Out the Operation, Pray for Guidance"

"Below I will explain the jihadist way of action and the security measures to
be employed by the jihad fighter [when he wants to kill a Westerner]:

"First of all, before carrying out the operation, pray [to Allah] to guide you
on the good path.

"[Regarding your] external appearance - Try as much as possible to look like
someone who is not religious. For example, wear [a kuffiyeh] with an 'aqal
instead of a turban, and wear cheap dark glasses during the day and regular
glasses at night. Your clothes must be long, and try if at all possible for
them to be heel-length, or longer; don't be afraid of this. Wear a sport suit
or a regular suit. Similarly, it is greatly preferable to be shaven.

"[Regarding] the items or the clothing in [your] car - Immediately get rid of
everything in your car that indicates that you are religious, such as jihad
cassettes, small papers such as post-its... The most important thing there
must not be anything in the car indicating that the owner is a religious
man... so that if the dogs of the security [apparatuses], the emergency
[apparatuses], or the other [apparatuses] stop you in a suspicious place and
search your car they will find nothing proving that you are religious, and
will release you right away.

"While you are carrying out the operation, be careful not to take your cell
phone with you - especially if it has a camera - so that it won't cause you,
or your friends whose numbers are in the phone, problems with unknown

"Some Ways to Find a Crusader [i.e. a Westerner] or a Dog From the Security

"In order to carry out the operation when the time comes, you must have a
weapon (a pistol or a submachine gun) or a good knife, if you are interested
in slaughtering this infidel or this [Saudi] dog...

"[How to find a target] in the Crusader settlements [i.e. compounds] that are
found everywhere:

"The first method: At about seven AM, pass by the settlement and check only
how these Crusaders leave it, and what road they take. Beware, my
jihad-fighting brother, to pass by only once, because the military dogs at the
gates [of the settlement] might suspect you and detain you.

"Two or three days later, pass by the [same] settlement, but don't go near it
as you did the first time. That is, go straight to the road where [the
settlement residents] go, and wait for them by the side of the road, and when
you see one of these Crusaders, follow him.

"It is best to change vehicles each time, if you can. While following the
Crusader, be very careful not to be exposed. For the most part, especially
these days, they are feeling safer, because there are not many operations
against them. But the jihad wave is approaching, and Allah will conceal this
matter from them....

"When [the Westerner you have selected] stops at a traffic light, try to be
behind him, in the same lane, with at least two cars between you and him, or
alongside him, but not exactly alongside him. While waiting at the traffic
light, refrain from casual glances, and try to occupy yourself with something
(such as arranging your 'akal...). When you two turn onto the highway, try to
pass the infidel on the right or left, and then slow down so that he will pass
you, so as to remove suspicion for the next time.

"When you and the infidel move to the secondary road, and you are following
him and there is no one on the road but the two of you, first slow down and
pretend you're looking for a shop or a place or a person, by turning your head
right and left as if searching for something, [thus showing] that this infidel
does not interest you at all.

"A second way to find [a Westerner]: Sometimes there is no need to follow the
infidel first thing in the morning; often we see them next to traffic lights
or at the big marketplaces... (such as Karfour, Extra, and so on); often, they
shop there, particularly in the morning, between 9:30 and 12:00. When you see
[an infidel in one of these places], follow him carefully, and you will
[quickly] notice that for the most part he will be going to a settlement or to
a house in one of the neighborhoods...

"A third way to find [a Westerner]: Sometimes when you, the jihad fighter, are
sitting with your colleague or with family, someone comes and says: 'We have
an American working for the company, who receives [a salary of] 150,000...'
When you hear this, you must find out the following things:

"1) If you know where your colleague works - fine. But if you don't know where
he works and where his company is, immediately address your colleague, saying:
'That's not true, this [salary] is exaggerated.' He will immediately say,
'You're wrong, and I can prove it.' Tell him, 'I know someone who works for
such-and-such a company (give a name) and they have an American who gets
[paid] 40,000, and their company is in (give a place). Then tell him, 'Your
company is probably in the such-and-such area (north, for example).' And he
will reply: 'No, our company is in such-and-such a place.' If the description
so far is [still] unclear to you, say to him: 'Oh... next to (give the name of
a place)?' He will reply, 'No, our company is in such-and-such a place'
exactly. Then say to him, 'This American you have must be a director if he
gets [paid] such a sum,' and then he will tell you what this infidel does [in
the company]. Then say, 'Surely he has a fancy car if he gets such a salary,'
and then he will tell you the kind of car. Thus you have gotten the
information that will help you in the future, without your colleague or anyone
around him noticing. Then pretend that the matter doesn't interest you, and
try to change the subject immediately.

"2) If you know where your colleague works but you are interested in
information about this infidel, question him in the manner I described above,
and take care that they don't notice that you are looking for this infidel.

"How to Kill the Infidel and What Security Measures to Take

"The best way to carry this out is to forge an ID card and a work ID, in order
to rent a car. If you can't do this, act as follows:

"1) Take the license plate from any car that is the same model as your car. Be
sure that the region from which you take the license plate is far away from
the region in which you live. For example, if your car is a white Camry, look
for a white Camry that is far from the region [in which you live], and take
its license plate.

"2) Take the car of one of the ordinary people, in some easy way, and carry
out the operation that day using [this car]. Then leave the [car] in a public
place, so that the infidels will find it and return it to its owners...

"3) After obtaining a suitable car, kill the Crusader, in accordance with the
circumstances - if the Crusader works at a company where you work, or at a
company where someone you know works, strike him on his day off, or somewhere
far from [where the company is located]...; if the Crusader lives next door to
you or near you, and you want to kill him, it is best to kill him when he is
outside work, so as to distance you from suspicion...

"4) Take care that the windows of the car you use to carry out the [killing]
operation are somewhat dark; this will help you when you stop at traffic

"5) When you carry out the [killing] operation and make your escape, travel a
route that you have planned in advance. It is best [to go] by the highway for
five minutes, and then to move to secondary roads and then to neighborhoods,
so as to distance yourself from the place of the operation... [In order to
avoid being followed,] look behind you (and check) if anyone is tailing you.

"6) After... [you have evaded being followed] park the car somewhere, [where]
you have at your disposal another vehicle, extremely clean, that you will use
to return home safely.

"7) Take care not to say a word. The tongue is what will lead you to the
infidels' prison. Many brothers have been arrested because they spoke near

"It is desirable to film the operation so it can be presented by the media, so
that it has a broader impact.

"After the operation succeeds, you will realize that this is very simple, and
that there is no need for an entire squad [to carry it out] but that one, two,
or three people are enough...

"You can look through the Mu'askar Al-Battar and Sawt Al-Jihad publications,
[to learn from them] important things that I may not have clarified here...
