Australia Jihadis

Aussie Fire Jihad……?

Islam group urges forest fire jihad

AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for “forest jihad” by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.

US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to “start forest fires”, claiming “scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels’ forests when they do the same to our lands”.

The website, posted by a group called the Al-Ikhlas Islamic Network, argues in Arabic that lighting fires is an effective form of terrorism justified in Islamic law under the “eye for an eye” doctrine.

The posting — which instructs jihadis to remember “forest jihad” in summer months — says fires cause economic damage and pollution, tie up security agencies and can take months to extinguish so that “this terror will haunt them for an extended period of time”.

“Imagine if, after all the losses caused by such an event, a jihadist organisation were to claim responsibility for the forest fires,” the website says. “You can hardly begin to imagine the level of fear that would take hold of people in the United States, in Europe, in Russia and in Australia.”

With the nation heading into another hot, dry summer, Australian intelligence agencies are treating the possibility that bushfires could be used as a weapon of terrorism as a serious concern

UPDATE: The Sheik has more here.

  1. We at http://www.australianislamistmonitor.org who wrote in September last year of the ‘Forest Fire Jihad’ reported in the Age would like to thank this site for publishing the information as IT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE AGE SITE so the ordinary researcher/reader cannot easily find this information.

    The full article is available at

    We would also like to thank Sheik Yermami of Winds of Jihad for drawing attention to the suddenly missing links to the original article.

  2. Thanks for the info, but I just checked my link but it works fine. I’m glad I came across your www site though!

    Cheers/KGS

  3. At this stage it seems unlikely that Muslim Jihadists have been lighting fires in Victoria although nothing can be ruled out where these criminals are concerned.

    We do know that arson is thought to have been a factor in some of these blazes but no link with Jihadists is yet established.

    You should understand that in this area of Victoria north and east of Melbourne, rainfall has been incredibly low for the past 13 years.

    There has been a build up of vegetation and dead fuel over the years.

    The “Greenies” have been instrumental in locking away tracts of forest that has prevented regular burn-offs of dead vegetation.

    In temepratures of 46 degrees, the air is so hot that oil in the eucalypt trees explodes at tree height and fire balls move across the forest trees with great speed – described like a roaring freight train – truly horrendous.

    In this instance, the flames moved so quickly that many people were unable to escape in time – hence the loss of life.

    This is an enormous tragedy and the Nation is in mourning for the lost lives.

    We ought not to ascribe blame to the Jihadists for this tragedy at this stage

    Evidence is what is needed and without evidence we are just expressing individual opinion.

    Were this to be proven, however, fear would not be the predominant emotional reaction – rather hard headed retribution.

  4. Thanks for the info. The TT did in fact state in the very first line of the post that it can’t be sure “who or what” started the fires. The post was speculative from the very beginning.
