First it was "Inspire", the online jihad magazine with the article the Tzarnaev Brothers used to construct the Boston marahon bombs called "How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom". Now we have "Azan", the next publication devoted exclusively to killing non-Muslims, and in its premier issue we find a call to hack American drones and kill Obama. What a lovely religion of peace Islam is.

New English-language jihadi publication calls on Muslims to hack US drones
A new magazine set up by Islamist radicals in Afghanistan and Pakistan is appealing to Muslims of the world to collaborate in developing new methods and technology to undermine American drone operations.
Publishing under the title “Azan,” the magazine’s first edition became available on May 5, according to the SITE intelligence group. The sprawling 80-page issue includes a lengthy section that evaluates drone strikes while making the case for a mass movement to undermine their impact.
The editorial calls for assistance against drones as a “sacred duty” of the Ummah, or the Muslim community.
“These drones can be hacked and manipulated as evidenced by the efforts of the Iraq Mujahideen. Furthermore, they can be destroyed using various technologies that the Mujahideen are working on. But the Muslims of the world must question themselves as to what role they are playing in helping these innocent Muslims with the abilities that Allah Has Given them. This is a call to anyone in the Islamic Ummah with knowledge, expertise and theories regarding anti-drone technology.”
The hacking to which the article refers is a 2009 incident in which Iraqi insurgents evidently deployed commercial software called SkyGrabber to tap into live video feeds put out by US Predator drones in Iraqi airspace.
The story, originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, attributed the exploit to Iranian-backed militants. At the time, the report also suggested that drones in Afghanistan had been exploited in the same manner.
"Any opinions, thoughts, ideas and practical implementations to defeat this drone technology must be communicated to us as early as possible because these would aid the Ummah greatly in its war against the Crusader-Zionist enemy," reads the entreaty by the magazine's editors.
And also there is this from ABC May 8 by Rym Momtaz
President Barack Obama appears with a bull’s-eye on his head in a new English-language magazine published online apparently by Islamist militants, who also urge Muslims around the world to try to hack and manipulate American drones.
“Wanted Dead Only. Barack Obama Mass Murderer. Reward: in the Hereafter,” reads the full page poster that depicts a darkened image Obama as a target.
Elsewhere in the 80-page tome, the magazine calls upon the “Ummah,” the community of Muslims all over the world, to hack and manipulate U.S. drones, identifying drone attacks as “one of the utmost important issues that the Ummah must unite to come up with an answer to.”
“This is a call to anyone in the Islamic Ummah with knowledge, expertise and theories regarding anti-drone technology. [...] These drones can be hacked and manipulated as evidenced by the efforts of the Iraq Mujahideen” says the article, possibly in reference to the reported interception of video feeds from U.S. predator drones by Iraqi militants in 2009....
