'How to Survive in the West' widely distributed through the Internet

The Islamic State is distributing a sinister new e-book online, entitled  "How to Survive in the West." The e-book, widely available wherever there is an online connection, advises would-be terrorists how to blend in with western society. The e-book offers helpful hints on how to build and detonate bombs as well - giving anyone with a grudge against civilization, religious or otherwise, a way to strike.

Analyzed by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, a chapter on homemade bomb making provides tips on how to assemble cell phone detonators and other types of secret explosives.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "By not showing you're Muslim, you've already excluded yourself being in the 'Terrorist watch list,'" the guide states. "Don't make it too obvious you have become a practicing Muslim."

Men should not grow beards and women are encouraged to avoid wearing a hijab in public. "When a Muslim goes out in public, he wants to fit into society to make himself look as normal as possible. Remember this isn't because he fears his Islamic identity, but he is doing this so he is not suspected of being an outsider enemy," the guide says.


The guide also advises to keep any weapons-related work confined to their homes.

Analyzed by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, a chapter on homemade bomb making provides tips on how to assemble cell phone detonators and other types of secret explosives.

The handbook "explains that while al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula taught its readers how to make three different types of bombs, whereas this chapter 'will focus on six different types: Molotov cocktail, nail bomb, microwave airbag bomb, gas canister bomb, remote controlled bomb, and car bomb.'"

In a macabre touch, Boston marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, are hailed as a model for Western jihadists. The former died in a shootout while the latter is now waiting to hear if he will receive the death penalty or spend the rest of his life in one of America's worst prisons, the ADX in the Colorado Rockies.

The chapter praises the Tsarnaevs "home-brewed" technique. "They put the timer on to when they wanted the oven switched on. When the microwave was on, it would heat up the airbags or aerosol cans. The airbags or aerosol cans would explode due to intensity in heat and pressure, forcing the microwave door to open forcefully. The nails/sharp rocks etc. in the microwave would come flying out of the microwave in the direction of the target."

A step-by-step guide on how to construct a cell phone detonator is also included.
