Revealed: Bubonic Plague Recipes, Neo-Nazi Screeds, Celine Dion and Banana Mousse on Seized ISIS Terrorist’s Computer
Call it the Laptop from Hell: a terrifying trove of documents discovered on a laptop computer apparently recently seized from an ISIS fighter in Syria show how to commit mass biological warfare attacks against non-Muslims, revel in Nazi ideology, and offers a banana mousse recipe to, well, kill for, according to Foreign Policy magazine.
Between 2009 and 2013, the device’s owner, reputedly a 24-year-old Tunisian national named Muhammed S., studied chemistry and physics, and stuffed the computer with a whopping “146 gigabytes of material, containing a total of 35,347 files in 2,367 folders.”
“The advantage of biological weapons is that they do not cost a lot of money, while the human casualties can be huge,” a chief 19-page instructional document, apparently a sort of FAQ on how to murder millions, was among the material found on the device, which was reportedly confiscated in January.
“Use small grenades with the virus, and throw them in closed areas like metros, soccer stadiums, or entertainment centers,” the document reads. “Best to do it next to the air-conditioning. It also can be used during suicide operations.”
Instructions were also provided on how to prepare the incredibly toxic poison, ricin, made from a particular strain of castor beans.
An 26-page-long Islamic ruling, also hidden on the laptop, allows believers to use weapons of mass destruction to reach their goals.
“If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction,” according to imprisoned Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd.
“Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth,” he wrote.
At least 2,400 Tunisians were fighting in Syria as Islamic State terrorists, Tunisia’s interior minister said in June, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star.
