In May, ISIS released their most recent issue of their recruitment magazine, Rumiyah, titled:
The Ruling on the Belligerent Christians
One of the articles in the magazine gives advice to Muslims as to how to kill kuffar in the west (kuffar are non-Muslims), including how to take large numbers of kuffar hostage, how to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can, and that they must stab and slit throats, chop off heads, flatten kuffar under trucks, and burn them alive.
It gives advice as to how to acquire firearms, including how to attack gun shops. And it advises that Muslims should target night clubs, movie theaters, shopping malls, large stores, restaurants, concert halls, university campuses, public swimming pools, and any busy enclosed area.
ISIS even suggests placing an ad for a room for rent aimed at “students” as a plot to take hostages.
Last year when an issue of Rumiyah told Muslims to use trucks to mow down westerners, Muslims began using trucks to commit terror attacks, an example was the Nice, France attack.
Another issue of Rumiyah told Muslims that if they couldn’t purchase guns, then they must use knives. Immediately following that issue, a wave of knife attacks began to occur.
In this latest issue, ISIS also targets Egypt’s Christians, which immediately resulted in several horrific attacks, including the one in which 29 Christians were massacred on their way to a monastery.
ISIS also did a lengthy hit piece on Shi’a. The result was terror attacks on Shi’a market places and mosques. One of the many attacks that took place occurred on June 9th when a suicide belt was detonated in a crowded market in the Shi’a holy city of Karbala, killing 30 people and injuring 35.
On June 22nd, ISIS blew up the al-Nuri mosque in Mosul. Western news reported that this is a sign that ISIS is being “defeated”. But this is untrue, and only makes westerners have a false sense of complacency, believing that ISIS is being defeated when it is not.
Al-Nuri was a Shi’a mosque, hence why ISIS blew it up, as their instructions made clear.
And if you remember, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared himself Caliph at al-Nuri mosque. Why? To announce Sunni Islam’s superiority over Shi’a. Blowing up the historical al-Nuri mosque is not a sign of defeat, but one of victory.
Since the release of the recent issue of Rumiyah, many terror attacks have been conducted that match the recommendations outlined in Rumiyah, including the recent terror attacks in Europe.
I think it’s time we take these threats seriously.
If western media won’t warn us about what ISIS is instructing Muslims to do to westerners inside their own countries, then we’d better spread the word ourselves.
The following are excerpts from Rumiyah. Please read so that you can learn how Muslims may plan on luring people to “slaughter”:
The objective of hostage-taking in the lands of disbelief (i.e. the west), and specifically in relation to just terror operations, is not to hold large numbers of the kuffar hostage in order to negotiate one’s demands. Rather, the objective is to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can until the enemies of Allah storm his location or succeed in killing him.
This is because the hostile kuffar only understand one language and that is the language of force, the language of killing, stabbing and slitting throats, chopping off heads, flattening them under trucks, and burning them alive, until they give the jizyah while they are in a state of humiliation.
This sunnah of inflicting a slaughter upon the kuffar was ordered by Allah when He said, “So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike their necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either confer favor afterwards or ransom them until the war lays down its burdens”, and likewise in His statement, “It is not for a prophet to have captives until he inflicts a massacre in the land”.
Armed with a Firearm
The scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public, and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar who are present. Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response, as was outstandingly demonstrated by the mujahidin who carried out the Bataclan theatre massacre during the course of the blessed Paris raid in which the three soldiers of the Khilafah, armed with assault rifles and hand grenades, stormed the theater, taking up positions and firing at the Crusader citizens present.
After having killed and injured many of them, those remaining of the kuffar were taken hostage so as to slow any efforts of the responding kafir armed forces from storming the theater. The raid was immensely successful, resulting in the harvest of 89 dead Crusader citizens and over 200 wounded.
Similarly, Omar Mateen [of the Orlando nightclub massacre] superbly demonstrated this scenario when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites, by Allah’s permission, and wounded 44 others, taking advantage of the slow initial police response and utilizing that window of opportunity to massacre as many of them as he possibly could.
The Acquisition of Firearms
The acquisition of firearms can be very simple depending on one’s geographical location. For example, The USA: In most US states, anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales, by way of private dealers, with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license. And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy
Europe: Due to its proximity to many conflict zones, such as Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, and Sham (Syria), and due to its inability to control its porous borders, firearms are widely available in Europe, facilitating their acquisition by means of gun dealers and underground criminal networks, for those capable of attaining those connections, which are widespread and rampant throughout Europe.
This was clearly demonstrated by the brother Abu Basir al-Ifriqi (Amedy Coulibaly), who succeeded in acquiring a small arsenal of weapons consisting of handguns, AK-47 assault rifles, explosives, and a cache of ammunition.
The UK: Much like its Crusader European counterparts, the UK faces a gun control dilemma as it feebly attempts to fend off the influx of weapons, but to no avail. Guns are readily available for purchase on the streets of Britain, even if not to the extent of their availability on the streets of its Crusader European partners.
Other methods of obtaining firearms in the West include raiding one of the hundreds or maybe thousands of hunting and tactical military stores by ramming one’s vehicle through the shop’s door when it’s closed and then entering the shop and seizing as many weapons as one can take.
Alternatively, after some simple reconnaissance, one could follow the shop owner after he’s closed for the day, ambush him or run him over with a vehicle, and then take his keys in order to gain access to the store’s arsenal and any other location where he might be storing firearms and ammunition. Such targets, though potentially offering a considerable gain in terms of ghanimah, should be pursued while keeping in mind that tactical and gun shop owners are normally the type who arm and train themselves and would not be as averse to engaging in a firefight when attacked.
They can, nevertheless, be taken by surprise if one takes the means available to him and plans his attack carefully. The mujahidin in Qawqaz Wilayah demonstrated that such attacks, those carried out against a well-armed and comparatively difficult target, should in no way be underestimated, as eight soldiers of the Khilafah attacked a Russian National Guard military base near the village of Naurskaya towards the northwest of the city of Grozny, armed with nothing but knives.
They attacked the soldiers in the base and seized their weapons. If that was what those lions were able to accomplish against a trained military force how much easier would it be if applied on a faint-hearted kafir shop owner in the West?!
Ideal Target Locations for hostage taking
Ideal target locations for hostage-taking scenarios include night clubs, movie theaters, busy shopping malls and large stores, popular restaurants, concert halls, university campuses, public swimming pools, and generally any busy enclosed area, as such an environment allows for one to take control of the situation by rounding up the kuffar present inside and allows one to massacre them while using the building as a natural defense against any responding force attempting to enter and bring the operation to a quick halt.
Similarly, characteristics of a good target location include low light conditions, as it grants one the ability to maneuver between the people, taking advantage of the confusion and killing as many of the kuffar as physically possible.
The operation should be initiated at times when the target location is at its busiest. Likewise, one can exploit days on which police and other security forces might be preoccupied with national or local events, thereby crippling and slowing their ability to swiftly respond.
It is also essential for one to know that the aim is to kill as many kuffar as one possibly can, and as quickly as one can before the initial police response. After killing those present one should keep a few of his victims alive as hostages to be used as human shields against the anticipated response of the kafir armed forces.
The absence of firearms or the lack of one’s ability to acquire them does not exclude one from attaining the immense reward of partaking in the worship of slaughtering the enemies of Allah and inflicting upon them a massacre. Rather, it only further opens the doors for a bit of creativity and some basic planning.
War Is Deception
Using deception as a tactic of warfare in order to lure one’s target or trick them into believing that they are safe before killing them or inconspicuously assassinating them is divinely approved. It is likewise one of the most appropriate methods to apply for the one seeking to slaughter large numbers of the kuffar while armed with something as simple and easily attainable as a knife.
Those residing in the lands of disbelief will surely note the ease and simplicity in achieving the confidence and trust of a disbeliever. Portraying oneself to them as harmless gives them the impression that they are secure and free from danger. This deceptive approach of luring the kafir is something that can be easily accomplished through various methods.
Advertising a Job: Advertising a fake job by way of posting one’s ad at a local unemployment center will undoubtedly attract a response. After garnering a significant amount of applicants, one can then arrange the “job interview” location and times, spacing out the applicants’ appointment times so as to give oneself time to subdue each target as he arrives, luring him to an appropriate location before attacking, subduing, binding, and then slaughtering them.
Advertising Property for Rent: One can falsely advertise a property for rent by means of local newspaper classified sections, or by means of online sites for classified advertising, or by simply writing or printing out “For Rent” advertisement posters which can be stuck on walls, lampposts, or in local store windows within the vicinity of the property in question. The advertisement should be for a small single room or studio apartment. This will help ensure that the viewer comes alone. It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is “ideal for students.”
Second-Hand Buy and Sell Groups: Online sales by way of buy and sell websites such as Craigslist, Gumtree, eBay, the Loot, and others are an alternative means to luring one’s victims. Also, the item being advertised should be something that requires the victim to enter one’s property. For example, a car wouldn’t require the target to enter the seller’s property as the vehicle would be expected to have been parked in the driveway or in front of the property.
In order to ensure success there are a few important points to remember and some prior measures to be taken:
• Having a room specifically reserved for the disposal of the bodies of the targets is also important for the obvious reason of not alerting those intended victims entering the property after them.
• One must space out the arrival times of one’s victims, thus granting him the ability to initiate his attack while they are alone.
• One should not initiate his attack until the target has fully entered the property and is comfortable, so as to avoid any struggle and prevent the chance of him fleeing.
• It is essential to have a suitable weapon for one’s operation, i.e. a strong, sharp knife, and possibly a bat or a small club that one may use to subdue the victim by striking them over the head before slaughtering them.
• One should have present with him at the location some easy means of restraining the targets, such as handcuffs, which are widely available for sale to the general public. A more discrete alternative is to purchase what are known as plastic cable ties (“zip ties”), which are also commonly used as restraints.
• One should ensure that if there are any screams from his victim, they do not result in the operation being compromised. This can be resolved by simply having a background noise that drowns out any other sounds, such as raising the volume of the television, radio, etc.
Additionally, carrying out this type of operation in the daytime hours will also help in this regard as it allows one to exploit the noise pollution that comes with the movement of people during those hours to drown out any sounds that may be heard as a consequence of one’s attack.
The focus of the discussion thus far has been on gaining control over multiple kuffar, either by storming an enclosed public site or luring them to an enclosed private location, thereby making it extremely difficult for them to flee, and then dispatching them either in an immediate or near-immediate time frame.
However, in order for the operation to gain wide publicity and more effectively plant terror into the hearts of the disbelievers, one can keep some of his victims alive and restrained, making for a more lengthy and drawn-out hostage scenario. One may then notify the authorities, explaining to them that he is a soldier of the Islamic State and informing them of what he has just done.
This will of course result in his location being surrounded, and eventually stormed, by armed forces. In such a scenario, he can delay their entry by using the surviving hostages as human shields, only keeping alive those necessary for this purpose. The intention of this delay is therefore only to prolong the terror, as the ideal scenario is that they storm the location and he is killed as a shahid, inshallah, after having inflicted upon the kuffar a just massacre.
