“Proceed with your jihad… Proceed to meet your Lord... Show no softness towards your enemies, although Allah has consigned them to you. Continue your forward march, since the true battle hasn't yet begun... It will rage in Baghdad and Karbala, so put on your [explosive] belts, and get ready, get ready. Do not relinquish [even] an inch [of the lands] you have liberated. The Rawafid [Shiite Muslims] shall not set foot in those areas again, unless it will be over your [dead] bodies… March towards the Baghdad [of Abbasid Caliph Haroun] Al-Rashid, the Baghdad of the Caliphate, since we still have a score to settle there. Wake [its people] in the morning by [storming] its walls, do not let them catch their breath, and be confident of victory from Allah. The Rawafid are a defeated nation, God forbid that He should grant them victory over you. They are polytheists, worshippers of animals and people.”“ISIS Spokesman: The Real Battle Will Be in Baghdad,” The Middle East Media Research Institute, June 12, 2014, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/8020.htm.
