Al Qaeda’s Ara­bian Penin­sula af­fil­i­ate plans to launch a car­toon as a way to re­cruit ji­hadists and pro­mote ter­ror­ist pro­pa­ganda.

The an­nounce­ment of the car­toon was posted on a web­site Satur­day an­nounc­ing that the pro­duc­tion will be pro­duced by Al Qaeda in the Ara­bian Penin­sula, the ter­ror­ist group now op­er­at­ing in Saudi Ara­bia and Ye­men that is viewed by U.S. of­fi­cials as one of the most dan­ger­ous al Qaeda off­shoots vy­ing for power in the Mid­dle East.

The launch­ing of the car­toon shows that the Is­lamist group is con­tin­u­ing to seek re­cruits and spread its pro­pa­ganda, es­pe­cially among young peo­ple.

The car­toon an­nounce­ment ap­pears on the Al-Min­bar al-Ilami Ji­hadist Fo­rum. The post­ing stated in Ara­bic: “Soon: Large Scale Car­toon Pro­duc­tion — The Al Qaeda in the Ara­bian Penin­sula.”

It in­cludes im­ages show­ing the black al Qaeda flag and masked car­toon char­ac­ters fir­ing AK-47 as­sault ri­fles and rocket-pro­pelled grenades.

“The pro­duc­tion ex­poses the de­featists who do not sup­port the re­li­gion and the prophet as well as the col­lab­o­ra­tionism of rulers with the West,” the post­ing said.

Al Qaeda in the Ara­bian Penin­sula is launch­ing a car­toon to lure re­cruits and spread its ter­ror­ist pro­pa­ganda, es­pe­cially among young peo­ple.
