Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS leader, January 2014

“We say to whoever has been involved in fights against the [Islamic S]tate from the battalions, reconsider, and repent to your Lord… Here the [Islamic S]tate is extending an arm to you to stop fighting it and it would stop fighting you, let’s be free to fight the Nusairies and Rafedha… The Nusairies are shedding your blood, attacking your honour, destroying your homes under the claim of fighting terrorism to protect you from Jews and Crusaders, collaborating against Islam and fixing up traps for the Mujahedeen and fighting them, [pretending] to cry for you while trading in your blood and cause…

“This is a message to America. Beware you protector of the ‘Cross’ that the war by delegation won’t help you in Sha[m], as it didn’t in Iraq, and soon you will be in full confrontation, forced by the Will of Allah, and that the sons of Islam have prepared themselves for that day.”Aaron Y. Zelin, “al-Furqān Media presents a new audio message from the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shām’s Abū Bakr al-Ḥussaynī al-Baghdādī: ‘God Knows and You Do Not Know,’” Jihadology, last modified January 25, 2014,

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Leader and Founder of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, September 11, 2004

“My nation, the nation of the sword and the pen, why is it that your sword is now broken and your pen has been laid down? You used to be prouder than the stars, and you have now become downtrodden under the feet of the invaders and under the hooves of the usurpers' horses. My dear nation - my words to you today are laden with sorrow. Don't you hear the serpents' hissing as they wind their way in the darkness of your apathy in order to assassinate your dawn? … Let me tell you about our state of affairs, for we are at a turning point, so that you may understand the right course and combine forces, lest we regret, and this is no time for regrets. Both those who are far away and those who are near acknowledge the truth of the tri-partite Satanic coalition of heresy and deceit in the land of the two rivers. The first are the Americans who carry the banner of the cross; the second are the Kurds through their pashmerga forces… which are reinforced by Jewish military cadres; the third are the Shi’ites, the Sunnis’ enemies...”

“[The mujahideen] are the ones who made the international coalition drink the draught of humiliation, and they have struck them blows that will not quickly be forgotten, and they have taught them lessons which are still seared on their skin, and they are still convulsing from the pains of these lessons - lessons which lowered their flags to half-mast and shook their feet and confused their thoughts until fright wormed its way into their joints, and the worm of despair bored into their bones. It could not be otherwise, for our heroes massacred them, to the point where they saw the cowardice of the American soldier.”

“O young Islamic man in Iraq and in all Muslim countries, you who are perplexed and seeking life, you who yearn to come to the aid of the religion of Allah, you who offer your life to your Lord, here is guidance to the right path, here is wisdom and probity, here is the ecstasy of self-sacrifice and the pleasure of Jihad…”

“As for you, fighters who came from afar, by Allah, missions of da'wa [the propagation of Islam] have never been a road lined with roses and sweet basil; the price of da'wa missions is heavy, and the price of bringing principles to the land of reality is a lot of torn limbs and blood. The light of dawn shall not be lit in this darkness save by Jihad fighters and shahids (martyrs).“Al-Zarqawi’s Message to the Fighters of Jihad in Iraq on September 11, 2004,” The Middle East Media Research Institute, September 15, 2004,

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, See “The Islamic State’s (ISIS, ISIL) Magazine,” Clarion Project, September 10, 2014,

Ismail al-Wahwah, Leader of HT Australia, July 25, 2014

“The entire world suffers from the children of Israel today and complains about them. Who will set the world free from the children of Israel so that the world will be able to say that it has rid itself of that hidden evil? This mission will be accomplished by none but you, O Muslims… The ember of jihad against the Jews will continue to burn. The struggle and the jihad will continue until the words of Allah come true.”Taylor Auerbach, “Hizb ut-Tahrir leader Ismail Alwahwah calls for jihad against Jews in inflammatory video,” Daily Telegraph (Sydney), March 9, 2015,

Osama Hamdan, Hamas’s representative in Lebanon, July 2014

“We all remember how the Jews used to slaughter Christians, in order to mix their blood in their holy matzot. This is not a figment of imagination or something taken from a film. It is a fact, acknowledged by their own books and by historical evidence. It happened everywhere, here and there.”

“The Israelis concentrate on killing children. I believe that this is engraved in the historical Zionist and Jewish mentality, which has become addicted to the killing of women and children.”Ariel Ben Solomon, “Hamas Invites Hezbollah to Join in Fighting against Israel,” Jerusalem Post, July 30, 2014,

Hamas sermon in Gaza’s Deir al-Balah Mosque, airing on Hamas’s al-Aqsa TV station, July 2014

“Our doctrine in fighting you [the Jews] is that we will totally exterminate you. We will not leave a single one of you alive, because you are alien usurpers of the land and eternal mercenaries. Research the history, my brothers. Wherever the Jews lived, they spread corruption.”Ariel Ben Solomon, “Hamas Invites Hezbollah to Join in Fighting against Israel,” Jerusalem Post, July 30, 2014,

“Israel is targeting the Palestinians… I would just like to remind you of the ruling by the Israeli rabbis, who have instructed the soldiers to knead the [dough for] the bread that the Jews eat with the blood of Arab and Palestinian children.”Lazar Berman, “Islamic Jihad: IDF Soldiers Told to Bake Palestinian Blood into Bread,” Times of Israel, July 27, 2014,
