On December 21, 2023, the pro-Al-Qaeda Al-Nusra Media Foundation published[1] a poster titled "Practical Ways to Support Muslims in Palestine," listing three categories of action: "Military Support," "Media Support," and "Support Through Prayer."

With respect to military support, the poster urges supporters to target Jewish neighborhoods in the "U.S., Europe, and the rest of the world"; burn and destroy "Jewish and Crusader embassies"; assault synagogues; attack "Jewish nightclubs" and kill their visitors; and harm "Jewish economic interests" around the world.

Concerning media support, the poster recommends stressing that the war against Jews is "purely religious and dogmatic" rather than national, and that the battlefield includes "all places of Jewish presence, not only Palestine." It further recommends exposing the "truth about the Jews as it appears in the Quran," as "Jews are the same in every time and place."

As to support through prayer, the poster states: "Prayer is the weapon of believers, and it is a lethal weapon when done according to the conditions and rules. It accompanies the aforementioned means of support, absolutely not separate from them. Do not forget the Muslims in your prayer."

Since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war, multiple Al-Qaeda-affiliated[2] and pro-Al-Qaeda[3] groups and media outlets have published statements, essays, posters, and videos calling to attack Jews and targets of Israel and its allies throughout the world.
