Abu Muhammad al-Adnani

“If the parties have gathered against you, then know they gathered against your Prophet before (blessings and peace be upon him). This is the established way of Allah, the Blessed, the Exalted. Or did you think that the people would greet you by saying “Allah is the greatest” and “There is no god but Allah”? And that they would joyfully bid you welcome? {While such trialhas not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you} [Al-Baqarah: 214], whereby you taste what they have tasted?” (A speech titled “Indeed Your Lord is Ever Watchful”)Caleb Weiss, “Islamic State spokesman again threatens West in new speech,” Long War Journal, September 21, 2014, http://www.longwarjournal.org/threat-matrix/archives/2014/09/islamic_state_spokesman_again.php.
