In his first address in more than 5 months, the “Islamic State” leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi addressed his followers around the world urging them to fight and kill enemy soldiers especially of the Iraqi army also urged them to fight the United States and its Arab and Western allies.
The audio message was published today Thursday on websites affiliated with the “Islamic State”
He said: “ O soldiers of Islamic State, continue to harvest the soldiers, Erupt volcanoes to Jihad everywhere, Light the earth with fire upon all the tawaghit [ tyrants], their soldiers, and supporters. Carry on in your path, as you are they strong by Allah’s permission. Carry on, as you are the honorable. Carry on, as you are the superior,. Carry on, as you are the victorious”
He saved his strongest condemnation to the Saudi royal family, Al Saud, which he called as the “Serpent’s head” and the “ Al Salul” a reference to an ancient Jewish family that existed in Arabia during the early times of Islam.
He addressed the Saudi citizens urging them to rebel against the Saudi royal family saying “ the serpent’s head and the stronghold of disease is besides you. Thus draw your swords and break their sheaths.” He added that “there will no security nor rest for Al Salul and their soldiers after today.”
He, however, ordered his followers to first kill the Shias, then the Saudi Royal family members, then Saudi soldiers before the western or American soldiers or bases. “Dismember their limbs; snatch them as groups and individuals”
But he asked his followers first to kill the Shias everywhere whom he calls the “ the Rafidah” which is an ancient Islamic term for those who rejected the mainline Islamic tenets.
He also praised the Egyptian group that’s fighting the Egyptian army in the Sinai “ Ansar Byt-al Maqdis” a former Al Qaida affiliate and thathas declared its allegiance to ISIS last week . He also praised Jihadist groups in Morocco, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia.
Al Baghdadi sounded defiant when he mocked President Barack Obama’s decision to send 1500 American soldiers to Iraq as advisors stating that his “State” is ever expanding in territory, recruits and power despite more American soldiers being deployed to Iraq.
Earlier, the Arab Daily News reported that ISIS’s “treasury” intends to issue its own currency in Gold, Silver and Copper in order to get rid off the international Monterey system that is ” dominated by the Jews and Crusaders.” the statement included images and designs of the new currency.
