The Long War Journal tells
of a jihad vulgarian plying his trade right here in the city:
On May 7, the Ibn Taymiyyah Media Center, a jihadist media unit tied to the Mujahideen Shura Council in the Environs (MSC), released an audio message from MSC official Abdullah Jihad al Ashqar (Abu al Muhtasib al Maqdisi) to jihadist forums and their various social networking accounts.
In the message, which was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, al Ashqar praised Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal, a well-known jihadist in the Gaza Strip who was killed in an airstrike by the Israeli Air Force on April 30. Al Ashqar lauded Masshal and said that he had "never visited him [Masshal] without finding his room full with materials for manufacturing and preparing rockets, and the materials of jihad."
Al Ashqar revealed that Masshal had grown up in a "simple family" near Gaza City, and that over time he "grew to be committed and love jihad in the Cause of Allah."
According to al Ashqar, Masshal was very helpful to the Salafi jihadists in the Gaza Strip. [...]
He should be taken in for interrogation and incitement, as well as for justifying murder. This kind of incitement should be monitored and its perpetrators required to undergo probation.
