Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), sent a message to his fellow Sunni supporters to commemorate the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
Soon, by Allah’s permission, a day will come when the Muslim will walk everywhere as a master, having honor, being revered, with his head raised high and his dignity preserved. Anyone who dares to offend him will be disciplined, and any hand that reaches out to harm him will be cut off.
The ISIS leader showed a willingness to blame the Jews for “mobilizing” the international community against his radical terrorist group. He said:
O ummah of Islam, indeed the world today has been divided into two camps and two trenches, with no third camp present: The camp of Islam and faith, and the camp of kufr (disbelief) and hypocrisy – the camp of the Muslims and the mujahidin everywhere, and the camp of the Jews, the crusaders [Christians], their allies, and with them the rest of the nations and religions of kufr, all being led by America and Russia, and being mobilized by the Jews.
Baghdadi didn’t seem interested in unifying all Muslims. On two occasions, he blamed the rafidah [Shiites] for destroying “Muslim’s rights.”
“This is my advice to you. If you hold to it, you will conquer Rome and own the world, if Allah wills,” Baghdadi concluded.
