If anyone thinks the Islamic wars are over because of recent ISIS defeats, they are in for a bloody awakening. It’s not ISIS or al Qaeda or al Shabbab, Boko Haran, Hamas, Hezb’allah, et al. It’s Islam.
INSPIRED BY CALL FOR HOLIDAY ATTACKS IN IS VIDEO FROM SOMALIA, SUPPORTERS LAUNCH “HUNT THEM” CAMPAIGN
Site Intel, December 26, 2017
Inspired by the call delivered by the Islamic State (IS) in its inaugural official video from Somalia for holiday attacks in the West, group supporters launched a campaign dubbed “Hunt Them O Muwahid”.
Following their flood of posters inciting for and threatening attacks in the West during Christmas, Islamic State (IS) supporters have begun to do the same for New Year’s Eve.
Such graphics were distributed on pro-IS Telegram channels and chat groups on December 26, 2017, display the jihadi tropes of bombs, guns, and knives atop images of celebrations. For example, a poster shows what appears to be a New Year’s Eve celebration in New York’s Times Square, overlaid with a man holding a gun with fire behind him, and Arabic and English text reading “Soon on your holidays”. Another shows the Eiffel Tower and the words “Happy New Blood Year… So Wait What’s Coming On,” with the 0 and 1 in 2018 spelled with a bomb and a fighter, respectively. A third, designed by Rimah Media Foundation, shows a darkened city street with a man holding a knife, and the words “We will meet on New Year party”.
Newsweek is reporting ISIS’s New Years video debut, a nearly eight-and-a-half-minute video, began with a shot of a Christmas tree, champagne being poured in a tall glass and the voices of partygoers counting down to the New Year. Instead of shouts of “Happy New Year,” however, after “one” came a man yelling “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater) and the sounds of violence the militant group has been notorious for causing and inspiring around the world. A narrator then beckoned ISIS supporters to take advantage of intoxicated people and large gatherings for Christmas and New Year’s as “a new opportunity” to perpetrate death and destruction
“This message is for the brothers who are living among the kuffar [infidels]. Don’t you feel the pain of the Muslim brothers living in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Burma and Palestine? The prophet—salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam [blessings of God be upon him and peace]—said, ‘The kafir [infidel] and his killer will never be joined in the hellfire.’ Which means, killing a kafir is your ticket out of jahenim [hell],” an unidentified, masked man told the camera while holding what appeared to be a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
“And lastly, know this, the Islamic State is here to stay. We’re going to fight and keep on fighting until we rule the whole world by the Sharia and this black banner of la ilaha illa Allah [There is no god but God]. We’ll rise from Washington to Moscow, from Europe to China, and there’s nothing that can stop us,” he added, before citing a verse from the Quran.
