Currently, there are at least 1,000 active FBI investigations for ISIS acts or conspiracies in the United States.

45% were arrested as they attempted to join ISIS fighters overseas. 30% were plotting to carry out attacks on U.S. soil.

This article gives excerpts of the Islamic State’s recruitment magazine. If you read the article in full you will fully understand the terror attacks in Europe and realize the threat in the U.S. is real.


DABIQ was the Islamic State’s first recruitment magazine and successfully recruited Muslims from around the world.

At least 300,000 foreign Islamists from over 80 countries joined ISIS in Syria since 2014. It has been estimated that at least 10% of those ISIS fighters have left Syria and returned to their country of origin.

By 2015, ISIS had control over the Syria-Turkish border and the people who were allowed to cross over into Turkey as “refugees” were ISIS fighters.

Many thousands of these false “refugees” made their way to Western countries. Turkey provided many of them with false “Syrian” passports and I.D.

Additionally, ISIS has been recruiting successfully in African countries. Many thousands of young, male ISIS supporters have left Africa as “migrants”. This has been ongoing for three years. Ships leave regularly from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya.

In recent weeks many thousands of young male Muslims from Africa have arrived in Italy on these ships. Previously they’ve landed in Greece and France.

This is a well-planned war that is just beginning to reach fruition.

ISIS fighters have been placed in every Western country, partly due to the Islamic State’s two recruitment magazines, Dabiq (a city in Syria) and Rumiyah (Rome).

Via its recruitment magazines, ISIS has successfully recruited its main army, now it’s focus is Rome and the West, via its recent publication Rumiyah. The following is information about the Islamic State’s first magazine, Dabiq, and demonstrates the mentality behind its recruitment. It also explains the terror attacks currently happening in Europe.

Issue #8:  Shari’ah Alone Will Rule Africa

ISIS has an intense interest in Africa, where they are successfully persuading al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups, such as Muslim Brotherhood, to join them in jihad. They easily recruit members because all Islamist groups have the same goal of imposing Islamic Law on the World.

Quranic verses and sections of Hadith (traditions of Muhammad) are used to back their claims that ISIS is fulfilling what the Quran demands that Muslims must do — jihad. The magazine demonstrates via photos and statements of Islamic Doctrine, that ISIS is following the exact behavior of Muhammad — who is the “ideal” Muslim.

Many al-Qaeda branches in north and central Africa have pledged their allegiance to ISIS. ISIS has also received pledges of allegiance from al-Shabaab in Somalia and Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram controls 6 times more territory than ISIS.

Boko Haram has been massacring entire Christian villages. In January of 2015, more than 2000 Christians were killed in a 48-hr period. The Christian population has been reduced to half of what it was because of Boko Haram. And Boko Haram is now on board with ISIS.

An article in Shari’ah Alone Will Rule Africa justifies the destruction of ancient treasures of Syrian and Iraqi cultures by quoting segments from the Quran and Hadith. The article includes photos proudly displaying ISIS destroying ancient artifacts. The argument for this destruction is that ISIS is following the exact behavior of Muhammad.

ISIS says that artifacts in the Mosul museum were destroyed because they were “worshiped” by the public. ISIS condemns Iraqis because they have “national pride” regarding their heritage.

“The soldiers of the Caliphate, with sledgehammers in hand, revived the tradition of Muhammad when they destroyed the legacy of a nation”.

“The kuffār had unearthed these statues and ruins and attempted to portray them as part of a cultural heritage and identity that Iraqi Muslims should embrace and be proud of. This opposes Allah and Muhammad and only serves a nationalist agenda that severely dilutes the walā’ that is required of Muslims.”

(wala means loyalty and disavowal; a Muslim is required to love what Allah loves, and hate what Allah hates.)

ISIS emphasizes the need for future generations to be trained and to join ISIS camps. The Youth Camps include members as young as three years old, and includes training camps for girls. All children are trained in suicide bombing.

ISIS states that Muslim parents are proudly sending their children to ISIS camps and the issue includes photos of children at the training camps. By enlisting very young children, ISIS says that Islam will have future generations armed and ready to continue the fight for world domination.

ISIS also states that they send these children as “immigrants” to western countries.

ISIS emphasizes hijrah (immigration) as a recruitment message targeted at Muslims living in the West. For those unable to go to Syria, ISIS tells Muslims living in the West that they are obligated to wage jihad against non-Muslims in the countries that they have immigrated to.

Issue #4: The Failed Crusade

The cover of this issue is the ISIS flag on top of the obelisk at the center of St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. According to ISIS, all westerners are “offspring of the cradle of Christianity”. Therefore, Rome is a target.

The article calls on jihadists across the world to attack westerners “wherever they can be found”, and states:

At this point of the West’s crusade against the Islamic State it is very important that attacks take place in every country that has entered into the alliance against the Islamic State, especially the US, UK, France, Australia and Germany. Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader and kill him. The Islamic State will remain until its banner flies over Rome.”

“We perform jihad here [Syria] while our eyes are upon al-Quds (Jerusalem). We fight here, while our goal is Rome.

We will not rest from our jihad until we are under the olive trees of Rome, after we destroy the filthy house called the White House. Today we are upon the doorstep of a new era, a turning point for the map of the region—and the world. Today we witness the end of the lie called “western civilization” and the rise of the Islamic giant.

“And so we promise you, O crusaders, that this campaign will be your final campaign. The Crusaders will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated, except that this time we will raid you thereafter, and you will never raid us.

“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women. This is Allah’s promise; He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time right now, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.

O America, and O crusaders, know that the matter is more dangerous than you have imagined and greater than you have envisioned. We have warned you that today we are in a new era, an era where the Islamic State, its soldiers, and its sons are leaders. They are a people who through the ages have not known defeat.

“The outcome of their battles is concluded before they begin, Allah has declared it. And being killed is a victory. This is where the secret lies. You fight a people who can never be defeated.

“Send arms and equipment to your agents and dogs. Prepare them with the most modern equipment. Send them very much, for it will end up as war booty in our hands. You will spend it, then it will be a source of regret for you, then you will be defeated. Look at your armored vehicles, machinery, weaponry, and equipment. It is in our hands. Allah granted it to us. And we fight you with it.

“O Americans, and O Europeans. You will pay the price when your sons are sent to wage war against us, and they return to you as disabled amputees, or inside coffins, or mentally ill.

“You will pay the price as you are afraid of traveling to any land. You will pay the price as you walk on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland. You will pay the price, and we have prepared for you what will pain you.

“So, O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Embitter their lives.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever, kill them in any manner or way however it may be. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military.

The following is an excerpt from another article titled:

Reflections on the Final Crusade

“History repeats itself by Allah’s divine decree. There is no escape from this divine decree. The bulk of all jihad was against the cross-worshiping Romans with Sham (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine). Rome in the Arabic tongue of the Prophet Muhammad refers to the Christians of Europe and their colonies.

“Rush to Support your State, O Muslim, the Islamic State. It is very important that attacks take place in every country that has entered into the alliance against the Islamic State. The citizens of crusader nations should be targeted wherever they can be found. He should be pleased to meet his Lord even if with just one dead kafir’s name written in his scroll of deeds.

“Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader, and kill him. Rely upon Allah and stab the crusader” should be the battle cry.”


Also in this issue is an article titled: The Revival of Slavery before the Hour.  ISIS goes into detail of why slavery must exist and why Christians must be slaves. The article states that enslaving the families of the kuffar and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah and if one were to deny it, he would be denying the Quran and the Prophet and thereby would be an apostate–which carries a death sentence.

Issue #1: The Return of Khilafah (caliphate)

In this issue, immigration is described as a key element of jihad.

“The more bombs you drop on our people, the more Muslims will realize and understand that today, waging jihad against the West and its allies around the world is beyond a shadow of a doubt a religious obligation binding upon every Muslim.”

ISIS states that because the Islamic State has established a caliphate, and this caliphate is the target of a crusade against Islam, Muslims are obligated by the tenets of their faith to immigrate to the caliphate — leaving behind a world shaped by “man-made laws” — to help defend a new world ruled by sharia law. But:

“If Muslims cannot come to Syria, they must defend the caliphate by waging jihad against the Governments of Canada, America and Europe, as well as the citizens of these governments.

“Presently, Allah has not facilitated for you to hijrah to our State. No Problem. Defend your religion where you are. Kill them with knives. At the very least, strike them in the face.”

“I call on you to either come here, or defend your religion where you are. To all my brothers in France, I say to them: Start carrying out individual attacks. Be wolves on the earth, for each man amongst you can be equivalent of an entire army.”

ISIS then attempts to galvanize global jihadists by claiming it has achieved that which al-Qaeda’s founding documents describe as the goal of al-Qaeda’s jihad: the goal of Restoring the Caliphate.

This has proven very effective in recruiting al-Qaeda members who feel al-Qaeda has moved too slowly at achieving that goal.

ISIS says it has established an infrastructure in Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt, all supported by an operating base in Libya, and that ISIS will eventually be leveraged to launch a jihad against Israel.

“Whichever group can liberate al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel and raise the victorious banners of jihad atop al-Mukabber Mount in Jerusalem, that group, whether al-Qaeda or another group such as ISIS, will claim control of the “Global Jihad” movement.”
