“Many readers are probably asking about their obligations towards the [Caliphate] right now… The first priority is to perform hijrah [migration] from wherever you are to the Islamic State, from dārul-kufr [the abode of unbelief] to dārul-Islām [the abode of Islam]… Rush to the shade of the Islamic State with your [family]… You can be a major contributor towards the liberation of [Mecca], [Medina], and al-Quds [Jerusalem].”

“As for the massacres taking place in Gaza against the Muslim men, women, and children, then the Islamic State will do everything within its means to continue striking down every apostate who stands as an obstacle on its path towards Palestine… [ISIS’s] actions speak louder than words and it is only a matter of time and patience before it reaches Palestine to fight the barbaric [J]ews and kill those of them hiding behind the gharqad trees—the trees of the [J]ews.”Aaron Y. Zelin, “al-Ḥayāt Media Center presents a new issue of the Islamic State’s magazine: ‘Dābiq #2,’” Jihadology, July 27, 2014,
