The handbook, called Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen, contains instructions on how to blend in to the western world.
“We thought a lot of non-Arabic speaking brothers would find it interesting and may apply it in their blessed operations.”
Readers are urged to wear a Christian cross, splash on the aftershave, cut off beards and even shun prayer meetings and mosques to avoid detection.
There is even advice about what jewelry to wear and on which hand to wear a watch.Potential terrorists are told: “If you can avoid having a beard, wearing qamis, using miswak and having a booklet of dhikr with you, it’s better.“It is permissible for you to wear a necklace showing a Christian cross.
“As you know, Christians – or even atheist Westerners with Christian background – wear crosses on their necklaces.
“If you want to use perfume, don’t use the oily, non-alcoholic perfume that Muslims use, instead use generic alcoholic perfume as everyone does, and if you are a man, use perfume for men.
“If you are wearing a watch, don’t wear it on your right hand, as this is a sign that you are religious.
Readers should note how out of touch with the modern world these guys are if they must be taught this stuff.
That’s the most revealing part of the ISIS handbook.
