ISIS propaganda video, mid-April 2015

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location. Thus you see it invades the Muslim lands, and it thinks that the army of the Jihad won’t reach in their lands. But the dream of the American to have safety became a mirage. Today there is no safety for any American on the globe. The mujahideen before although they had less resources, attacked New York and bombed the Twin Towers in September Eleven attacks. That blessed incursion was a fatal blow … by Allah’s willing the fear will spread among them again soon … Today, it’s time for payback … the mujahideen are much more stronger and they have more resources. Thus they are able to burn United States again.”Chris Perez, “ISIS threatens another 9/11-style attack on social media,” New York Post, April 13, 2015, http://nypost.com/2015/04/13/isis-threatens-another-911-style-attack-on-social-media/.

Anwar al-Awlaki Autumn 2011 (Duplicate Quote-for Leader Report only)

“There is no difference in ruling between bayat and detonating a bomb in a populated center in a nation that is at war with the Muslims. Just as the swords of the companions and those who followed them could not distinguish between man, woman and child and yet were allowed to engage in bayat, why should we ban bombings of populated areas in disbelieving countries?” Anwar al-Awlaki, “Targeting the Populations of Countries that are at War with the Muslims,” Inspire Magazine Issue 8 (2010): 42.
