The Unique Ninja Book for the Vigorous Mujahid
By SITE Institute
September 25, 2004

On September 13, 2004, a new booklet entitled ?The Unique Ninja Book for the Vigorous Mujahid? was posted on a number of Islamist websites. The author, an avowed supporter of the Mujahideen, believes that ?true information on the Ninjas and their role in the Japanese History . . . could, God willing, be useful for the Mujahideen.?

The booklet describes the history of Ninjas and their role in Japan, their combat and training methods, their use of weapons and explosives, and more. The author argues that the Mujahideen should draw on Ninja methods and learn from the historical experience of Ninja warriors. The booklet concludes with a song praising martyrdom and Jihad. The very last page contains only one phrase, written in large bold red letters, reading: ?Americans, we have brought slaughter upon you - so expect it [once again].?

In the introduction, the author promises to ?portray the history of the Ninjas and to draw comparisons with the situation of Allah?s servants, the Mujahideen guerrillas.? The author emphasizes throughout the booklet, however, that ?this is not to say that we must regard the Ninjas as a model - for our model is our beloved Chosen One [Mohammed], peace and prayer be upon him; but there is no harm in taking advantage of military knowledge of former nations.?
A translation of the manual is available to our paid subscribers only.
