“Here the flag of the Islamic State, the flag of tawhid [monotheism] rises and flutters. Its shade covers land from Aleppo to Diyala. Beneath it, the walls of the tawaghit [tyrants] have been demolished, their flags have fallen, and their borders have been destroyed. Their soldiers are either killed, imprisoned, or defeated. The Muslims are honored. The kuffar [unbelievers]... are disgraced. Ahl Al-Sunna [Sunnis] are masters and are esteemed. The people of bid’ah [forbidden religious innovation]... are humiliated. The hudud [Koranic punishment] are implemented... Crosses and graves are demolished… Jizya [the poll tax levied on non-Muslims living in Muslim lands] has been enforced… Courts have been established to resolve disputes and complaints. Evil has been removed.” (Declaring an Islamic caliphate)“ISIS Declares Islamic Caliphate, Appoints Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi As 'Caliph', Declares All Muslims Must Pledge Allegiance To Him,” The Middle East Media Research Institute, June 30, 2014, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/8049.htm.
