June 30, 2011

The following are transcripts from a compilation of webcam videos made by Seattle-area terror suspect Abu Khader Al-Latif. They are dated May 1 and April 18, 2011; November 18, 2010; and March 5, 2011. In them, he says that the Muslims “need to establish jihad with the tongue, with the heart, and with the hand,” asks when Muslims “will recognize, even as a martyr – from the first drop of blood – that our sins are forgiven?” and claims that U.S. President Barack Obama has “made war against Islam.” He also says that the uncovered body parts of women who do not veil themselves will burn in Hell.
