French ISIS Fighter To Muslims In France: If You Cannot Immigrate To The Caliphate, Blow Up France
December 21, 2014
The following report is a complimentary offering from MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.
In a four-minute video posted December 20, 2014 on the pro-ISIS jihadi forum Alplatformmedia.com, a masked and armed ISIS fighter calls on Muslims in that country to either make hijra (immigrate) to the Caliphate (i.e., the parts of Syria and Iraq controlled by ISIS) or to “blow up France” and kill unbelievers by any means: with a gun, a rock or a knife. The fighter speaks in French with a North African accent, and his statements are subtitled in Arabic. He is surrounded by several others, apparently also foreign ISIS fighters.
Below are excerpts from his statements in the video.
“I would like to address a message… to all my brothers and sisters in France, in the same manner that our sheikh [ISIS leader] Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has called upon you to strike all the interests of the infidels in all the infidels’ countries. Today I ask you the question: What have you done for the sake of your brothers and sisters? What have you done for the oppressed? What have you done for yourselves? What are you going to say to Allah on Judgment Day? What answer are you going to give him?… Today you no longer have any answer to give… If the infidels are keeping you from making hijra, hit them where you are. Today you are capable, you are capable of hitting them. What have you to lose, as long as martyrdom awaits you? What have you to lose if Allah’s Paradise awaits you?… The unbelievers can do nothing to you. This is clear and obvious. The unbeliever can no longer strike at Islam. The era when the Islamic umma was weak, when it was weakened, is gone. That era is over and it will never return.
