The terrorist organization's first English-language Web magazine is introduced with an online video and will be called 'Resurgence'

Al-Qaeda’s media wing has announced the upcoming launch of Resurgence, a terror magazine for English-speakers.

NBC News reports the video announcement spliced snippets of Malcolm X’s 1965 speech on violent resistance with images of militants, U.S. soldiers and the Boston Marathon bombings.

It’s not the first such publication to hit the market. The Boston marathon bombers allegedly lifted bomb-making recipes from a similar magazine, ‘Inspire,’ by an al-Qaeda splinter group in the Arabian Peninsula. Analysts said the launch marks an attempt by the parent organization—decimated by drone strikes—to reestablish control over global messaging and recruitment.
