Online interactions by Islamic terrorists reveal their intentions to use the Ebola virus as a weapon of mass destruction. Will they really carry this out?
Jihadist chatter online and on social media has revealed their sinister plot to use Ebola-infected terrorists as human weapons who will transmit the deadly and highly-contagious disease to the US and the West, a report by MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) shows.
On September 16, “Mata Al-Sa’a,” a member of the Jihadi Media Platform forum, suggested that the Islamic State (ISIS or IS) use the Ebola virus against the US as well as against countries that had joined its anti-ISIS coalition.
“[The] process of transporting diseases is not hard,” Al-Sa’a said. “It is enough to carry a Pepsi bottle in your briefcase and transport it from Africa to America. [Once there,] you open the bottle in one of the air ducts, or place it at the tip of public drinking water pipelines, and the doors of elevators, and the air and water will take care of the rest.”
Al-Sa’a further suggested that ISIS terrorists serve as human carriers: “Most of the Islamic State soldiers are istishhadiyyoun [suicide attackers], and all are ready not only to carry the Ebola [viruses] but to [even] ingest the Ebola… if they were asked to carry its pathogen and spread it in America.”
When Western countries “collaborate to kill Muslims’ dream of establishing an Islamic State, they must realize that two billion Muslims will not stand with their arms crossed,” he stated.
MEMRI further quoted other Islamic terror groups’ intentions to develop and use poison against Western targets. Ansar Al-Islam, a Kurdish Jihadist group that has recently joined ISIS, discussed in a series of tweets its activities in the lab working on possible chemical and biological “poison,” and “deadly chemicals.”
‘Kill any French or American Infidel’
On September 21, Al-Furqan, the IS media company, released a 42-minute audio message by spokesman Abu Muhammad Al-Adnani, in which he called on IS supporters worldwide to kill Westerners, especially American and French, in response to the Western campaign against the IS, including by injecting them with poison.
“Oh monotheists wherever you are, cause [the West] to let go of the Islamic State, to the best of your ability,” the message said. “The best thing to do would be to kill any French or American infidel or any of their allies… If you cannot [detonate] a bomb or

Islamic Religious Justification
However, Alaan TV reported on the contents of a laptop belonging to an IS terrorist, a Tunisian national named Muhammad, which contained files on how to manufacture biological and chemical weapons and how to create and spread an epidemic.
“Among the documents is a 19-page document which proves ISIS has an interest in the subject of how to make biological weapons and the plague. [According to one of the documents,] the microbe is injected in small mice and the symptoms of the disease start to appear within 24 hours,” the report stated.
The report addressed the religious justification for use of weapons of mass destruction: “In another document, one of the jihadists asks a sheikh for a fatwa on the permissibility of the using biological weapons as many innocent people may be killed after using it. [The response was]: ‘If Muslims cannot stop infidels unless they use these weapons, then it is permissible to use it even if you wipe them and their descendants.’”
