“The liberation of Al-Quds is the project of our Muslim Ummah as a whole and not the project of Qaedat Al-Jihad alone and it is a project of Qaedat Al-Jihad as have been expressed in its literature and speeches of its leaders, but there are many obstacles that prevent us from reaching our brothers in Bayt Al-Maqdis and the environs of Bayt Al-Maqdis. we ask Allah to remove it and facilitate our arrival to beloved Palestine, but the Ummah gathering around its sons the mujahidin in all the fronts can achieve these miracles Allah willing.”Casey Britton, “AQIM: Answers to Open Meeting with Sheikh Abu Abdul Ilah Ahmad,” WorldAnalysis.net, April 19, 2013, http://worldanalysis.net/modules/news/article.php?storyid=2197.

“[ISIS is]a product of the CIA and Mossad. The one who benefits most from [the Islamic State] is the Zionist entity, which is the spoiled child of the United States.”David Kenner, “For God and Country, and Iran,” Foreign Policy, March 5, 2015, http://rudaw.net/mobile/english/middleeast/iraq/270320151.

Al-Dabiq, ISIS magazine, July 2014

“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, http://jihadology.net/2014/07/27/al-%E1%B8%A5ayat-media-center-presents-a-new-issue-of-the-islamic-states-magazine-dabiq-2.

Al-Dabiq, ISIS Magazine, date unknown

“[Obama’s] decisions also expose the hypocritical politics of America that only serve the interests of their Jewish ally, Israel, and their own capitalist gluttony. So while genocide is committed by the Maliki, Asadi, and Israeli forces against the Muslims via systematic massacres, chemical warfare, rape, and starvation by siege, Obama watches with euphoria.”“In the Words of the Enemy,” Dabiq, no. 3 (2014), 35, http://media.clarionproject.org/files/09-2014/isis-isil-islamic-state-magazine-Issue-3-the-call-to-hijrah.pdf.
