A couple of days ago an ISIS affiliate from the Sinai released a video bragging about its violent actions against “Zionist agents” and warning the tribes of the region to conform to the dictates of the Caliph. The video is too graphic to remain on YouTube, but as of this writing it is still available on (CAUTION! Extreme violence at this link!)Dailymotion.
If you have the stomach to watch it, you’ll see some of the usual stuff — inspiring jihad songs in mujaharmony, blowing up buildings, the shooting and/or beheading of bad people who have done wrong in the eyes of Allah, etc. Most of the middle of the video is taken up by captives speaking earnestly into the camera. Some of them must surely be handcuffed, because you can see flies walk across their faces, and they shake their heads, rather than brush the insects away.
Portions of this video may eventually be subtitled. In the meantime, the following summary was written by ritamalik, who understands written Arabic, and some of the more standard spoken dialects of Arabic:
The video opens with Quran 5:51: “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you — then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.”
Then there is the beheading scene when the guy shouts that this is the punishment for all the apostate traitors. Takbir!
Then comes the voice of (I think) Khalifa Al-Baghdadi or someone like that, who gives a message to the people of Egypt in general and those of the Sinai in particular. That ISIS has been seeing a succession of treachery from them and how every day they discover a string of plots and conspiracies by them against Islam and the Muslims. Then he goes on to warn them about a group called “The Supporters of Beit Al Maghdas (Jerusalem)”, many of whom had turned out to be spies for the Jews. Then he denounces the Egyptian Army for killing the Mujahideen (ISIS fighters), and says that the Egyptians are fighting for the Jews and blockade the people of Gaza. And then says that Allah most high says that who ever makes friends with them (the Kuffar that is) is one of them! Therefore, he says, it is a religious duty to all of us (Muslims) to stand up to them. Then he quotes some more of the Quran about how God hates the Kuffar, who deny his light and so on.
