“Trump’s main problem is that he cannot hide America's hateful intentions and motives, which former US officials have kept secret in their hearts and strategies. His position is not only about the Islamic Ummah but also shows America's hatred and bad motives against all the nations of the world.”“Trump always shows the true face of America,” HT Afghanistan Media Office, January 13, 2019,

“The Hezbollah Brigades derives its goals and pillars from the sharia rulings, on which the formation was based. Our first goal was and still remains: thwarting the American project in the region, defeat of the occupation, and expelling them from Iraq, broken and humbled. The second goal is reclaiming Iraq’s sovereignty and granting all of its people their rights. As for our jihadi pillars, there are four. Firstly, waging jihad against the occupation until the last American is expelled from Iraq.”“About Kata’ib Hezbollah,” The Islamic Resistance Kata’ib Hezbollah Official Website, accessed June 27, 2018,

“A call to help our people in Gaza”:

“[Muslims should] attack the interests of the Jews and the Americans. Select your targets, collect the appropriate funds, assemble your equipment, plan accurately and then charge towards your targets. There is no place today for those who claim that the battlefield with the Jews is limited to Palestine. Let us hit their interests everywhere.”“Ayman al-Zawahiri in his own words,” BBC News, June 16, 2011,

Ayman al-Zawahiri, April 2008

On the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq:

“The first signs of victory have already appeared. Soon, Iraq will become a fortress of Islam, from whence the squadrons and regiments tasked with liberating the Al-Aqsa mosque [in Jerusalem] will burst forth, with the help of Allah.

“Iraq today is the most important front line for the participation of our Islamic nation against the forces of the crusader Zionist invasion. Due to this, providing assistance to the mujahideen in Iraq - at their head, the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) - is one of the most important duties required of the Islamic nation today.”“Ayman al-Zawahiri in his own words,” BBC News, June 16, 2011,
