ISIS issues call for “all out war” in the West during upcoming Ramadan

(THE FOREIGN DESK) — by Lisa Daftari

ISIS has issued a chilling new call for an “all out war” in the West during the upcoming month of Ramadan.

The terror group released its latest propaganda message entitled “Where are the lions of war?” in an audio-accompanied slideshow, posting to encrypted Telegram channels as well as publishing it on YouTube.

“O ye righteous believers in America, Russia and Europe,” one slide begins, “O supporters of the caliphate, o you who can’t reach the Islamic state lands and you are now among the idolaters, roll up clothes of your grandfather arm and believe in your quest, and know that our war with our enemy is all-out war and an of easy conciliation easy to reach so make them busy with themselves away from muslims and Islamic state lands and remember the words of your Prophet peace be upon him: (the disbeliever and his killer never meet in hell)”

As the world continues to react with shock to Monday’s horrific terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, some have questioned why the grotesque attacker appeared to deliberately target women and children. ISIS, in its sick way appears to be addressing such ‘concerns.’

Facing the upcoming holy month of Ramadan, the terror group reminds its faithful following around the world that this is the month of conquest.

“Prepare yourselves and be ready, and make sure that you spend all the time in the invading for the say of Allah, and ask God what you request, to make it a month and a curse on the infidels everywhere.

As countries have tightened borders around the world making it harder for militants to slip in and out of the Islamic State’s Caliphate, the terror group has modified its message to encourage supporters to carry out terror attacks in their home countries. The jihadi group even appeals to recruits telling them that their incapacity to reach the Caliphate is an asset, not a liability.

Addressing “soldiers of the caliphate and its supporters in Europe and America,” a slide advises “if the tyrants have closed the door of emigration open in their faces the door of Jihad… the smallest work you do in their homes is better and more beloved to us than our greatest work.”

Emphasizing the targeting of noncombatants, one sickening slide appears to alleviate jihadi ‘embarrassment’ in targeting civilians.

“So know, that there are no blood protection in the crusaders’ lands and houses and there is no existence for the so-called innocents and civilians.”

Islamic State loyalists continue takeover in southern Philippines

(THE LONG WAR JOURNAL) — By Caleb Weiss

Fighting between Islamic State loyalist and the Filipino security forces has entered its second day, with the situation further deteriorating. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has declared martial law in the city of Marawi, the provincial capital of Lanao Del Sur.

Today, the Islamic State’s representatives claimed control over several parts of Marawi city via a statement through the Islamic State’s ‘Amaq News. In addition, the militants have launched a large-scale jailbreak on two nearby prisons freeing at least 107 inmates. A statement released by the Islamic State also echoed this number.

Militants have taken several people hostage, including a Catholic priest and several churchgoers, after burning a church. The BBC has reported that a police chief has also been beheaded. The continuing clashes have forced thousands of people to flee the city as military reinforcements try to wrangle control.

Photos released by the Islamic State today show the jihadists still roaming the streets freely in parts of Marawi. In at least two photos, checkpoints appear to have been set up by the militants. Pictures posted online by residents of Marawi also show the jihadists in control over some areas of the city.

Yesterday, jihadists moved into the city and began to take over buildings and vehicles, including City Hall, a medical center and the city jail. The Filipino Air Force has reportedly “dropped several bombs” in select Marawi neighborhoods to try and wrestle back control of the city.

Fighting was also reported near a government hospital in the city, as well as near Mindanao State University. [See Threat Matrix report, Islamic State-loyal forces battle Filipino troops inside provincial capital.]

According to a Filipino Army spokesman, the jihadists inside Marawi are led by Isnilon Hapilon, who was spotted in the city. While his presence cannot be independently verified by FDD’s Long War Journal, Hapilon is a US-designated global terrorist and the former leader of the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).

UK casualty update: 22 dead, 120 injured, youngest victim eight years old

(BREITBART) — 22 people have been confirmed dead and around 120 others are injured following reports of multiple explosions after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in the North of England on Monday Evening.

Greater Manchester Police originally said there had been a “number of fatalities and others injured” at the Manchester Arena, where Grammy-nominated pop singer Ariana Grande was performing. Nineteen people were confirmed dead as of 8pm EST.

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins has confirmed the man suspected of carrying out last night’s attack was 22-year-old Salman Abedi.

Eyewitness accounts posted to social media show convoys of ambulances moving to the centre of Manchester as thousands of music fans fled the Manchester Evening News Arena.

UPDATE 2210 BST — May raises threat level to critical, ready to deploy Army on the streets – “Operation Temperer is now in force.”

In a televised statement from Downing Street, Prime Minister Theresa May said the U.K.’s terrorism threat level has been raised from severe to critical. ITV notes this level means “a terrorist attack is considered imminent.”

“It is a possibility that we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack,” said May.

She said the higher threat level means “there will be additional support available to the police as they work to keep us safe.”

“Operation Temperer is now in force,” May stated. Operation Temperer is a plan formulated after the Paris massacre, once considered secret by the British government, that could put up to 5,000 soldiers on the streets in the event of a major terrorist attack.

May specifically stated that initiating Operation Temperer meant the protection of key sites would be handed over to military personnel instead of the police, freeing up police officers for other duties.

“You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe,” the Prime Minister explained. “In all circumstances, members of the Armed Forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers.”

“I do not want the public to feel unduly alarmed,” she emphasized. “We have faced a serious terrorist threat in our country for many years. The operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face. I ask everyone to be vigilant and to cooperate with and support the police as they go about their important work.”

Duterte declares martial law after Islamic State forces overrun Philippine city of Marawi

(BREITBART) — A group of heavily armed fighters from the terrorist group “Maute,” also known as the Islamic State of Lanao, attacked the city of Marawi in the southern Philippines on Tuesday. Two soldiers and a policeman were reportedly killed in the battle so far, along with an unknown number of militants.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte declared the region under martial law for 60 days and has cut short his visit to Russia to deal with the “rebellion,” as he called it. Marawi, which has a population of about 200,000, is located on the southern island of Mindanao.

The Associated Press quotes Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana warning that “the whole of Marawi City is blacked out, there is no light, and there are Maute snipers all around.” However, Lorenzana insisted the Philippine military has not lost control of the city.

According to military officials, the battle began when Philippine troops raided a hideout used by militant leader Isnilon Hapilon, who has been tapped by the Islamic State to run a branch of ISIS in Southeast Asia. The AP describes him as “an Arabic-speaking Islamic preacher known for his expertise in commando assaults.”

Hapilon is the leader of the Abu Sayyaf gang, which is notorious for its kidnapping operations. He is one of the U.S. Justice Department’s most wanted terrorists in the world, with a $5 million bounty on his head.

When Hapilon, who was wounded in an airstrike in January, realized his men were likely to be defeated by Philippine troops, he called in reinforcements from another ISIS affiliate called Maute, which sent an estimated 50 gunmen to help.

Other versions of the story, such as the one provided by the Philippine Star, say the battle began when troops were dispatched to check reports of “men brandishing assault rifles” and came under fire from militants.

Residents of Marawi took photos of Maute fighters marching through the streets and driving stolen police vehicles flying the black flag of ISIS. The militants occupied the city hall and hospital, freed a number of prisoners from the local jail, and set fire to schools and a Catholic church, among other outrages. The ISIS flag was seen hanging from the hospital during its occupation.

Some of these assaults were described by the Philippine military as diversionary tactics, intended to draw troops away from the effort to capture Hapilon.

Local officials told the people of Marawi to “stay home and drop to the ground if they hear gunshots.” The Sun-Star reports that thousands of people have nevertheless fled their homes, as the military moved in armored fighting vehicles and even appears to have conducted airstrikes against “selected areas of Marawi City, particularly in the border with Lanao del Sur beside Lake Lanao.”

‘There was blood and bodies everywhere’: witnesses describe aftermath of Manchester explosion

(THE TELEGRAPH) — Concert-goers and witnesses have described the chaos after “huge bomb-like bangs” went off in Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande gig killing 19 people and injuring about 50 more.

Here are some of their accounts:

‘I saw bodies lying on the ground’

Andy Holey, who had gone to Manchester Arena to pick up his wife and daughter who had been at the concert, told BBC: “As I was waiting, an explosion went off and it threw me about 30 feet from one set of doors to the other set of doors.

“When I got up I saw bodies lying on the ground. My first thought was to go into the arena to try to find my family.

“When I couldn’t find them, I went outside with the police and fire and looked through some of the bodies to try and find my wife and daughter.”

Mr Holey told BBC that he did find his family and they were fine.

“It was definitely an explosion and it was some force. It happened near the box office at the entrance to the Arena.”
Moment Manchester Arena erupts in panic after ‘major incident’ at Ariana Grande concert
00:26
‘We heard the last song go, then suddenly a massive flash and then a bang and smoke’

Gary Walker from Leeds told BBC Radio 5 Live he was hit by shrapnel in his foot and his wife sustained a stomach wound as they waited for their daughters to come out of the concert.

“We heard the last song go and then suddenly there was a massive flash and then a bang and smoke,” he said.
‘It was a huge explosion – you could feel it in your chest’

Catherine Macfarlane told Reuters that she felt a massive explosion as she was leaving the concert.

“We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming.

“It was a huge explosion – you could feel it in your chest. It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out of the area.”

Majid Khan, 22, went to the concert with his sister. He described how the explosion hit the venue as they were leaving the building.

“I and my sister, along with a lot of others, were seeing Ariana Grande perform at Manchester Arena, and we were all exiting the venue when a huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena.

“It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit Trinity Way and that was blocked so everyone was just running to any exit they could find as quickly as they could.

“Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there.”

West Africa hit with spate of suicide bombings

(THE LONG WAR JOURNAL) — By Caleb Weiss

Since the beginning of this month, the West African countries of Nigeria and Cameroon have been hit with a spate of suicide bombings. The majority of these bombings have involved women, an incredibly common tactic in the region.

On May 3, three teenage girls reportedly attempted to infiltrate a military outpost in the city of Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria’s Borno state. The three were subsequently spotted which resulted in each detonating themselves as Nigerian soldiers tried to stop them. No casualties were reported. Two days later, seven people were killed when two girls detonated near a grouping of people in the town of Konduga in Borno.

One week later on May 13, two male suicide bombers detonated themselves after being stopped trying to enter Maiduguri’s university complex. One security official was killed and another wounded in the blast. Around the same time, a female attacker blew herself up at a nearby church, damaging the building. On May 16, the town of Konduga was again targeted by jihadists.

Three females killed two people and wounded six others in Konduga. Yesterday, two more females targeted Nigerian soldiers close to a camp for internally displaced persons in Konduga. Two soldiers were injured in the blasts. In addition, the University of Maiduguri was again targeted today.

Three male bombers again tried to enter the complex, but were stopped in the process by security personnel. When the three detonated their explosives, several people were injured, including security officials and members of a vigilante group. In Cameroon’s Far North Region, one person was killed today after two females detonated near simultaneously. Local officials have blamed Boko Haram for the attack.

ISIS calls on jihadists to buy weapons at gun shows to carry out attacks, lists top public spaces to assault

(HOMELAND SECURITY TODAY) By: Anthony Kimery

ISIS has called on jihadists to find ways of buying and acquiring firearms to wage holy war on Western infidels in the article, Just Terror Tactics, published in the 9th issue of ISIS’s magazine, Rumiyah, released Thursday. The report said, “The acquisition of firearms can be very simple, depending on one’s geographical location.”

the last full page of the article instructs lone wolves how to use trucks in an attack. Outdoor markets and rallies, parades and congested streets are recommended as points of attack.

“The 9th issue of Rumiyah highlights once again that one of the terror organization’s continued goal is to inspire lone wolf actors in the West, which has proven to be successful, MEMRI Executive Director Steven Stalinsky told Homeland Security Today. “An interesting note about the most recent edition and its article, Just Terror Tactics, which suggests very specific targets, shows that Westerners, including an increasing number of Americans, are not only supporting groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda – but that they continue to help and lead in the group’s propaganda efforts.”

Stalinsky further said, “It should also be noted that both ISIS and Al Qaeda continue to copy each other’s call of specific targets and methods as, Just Terror Tactics, highlighted by calling on lone wolf actors to get guns from gun shows for attacks, noting that the article explained that in most US states, anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales – by way of private dealers – with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license. And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.”

Stalinsky also pointed out that a video from 2011 featured American-born Al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn discussing how easy it is to buy firearms in the United States, and urged fellow jihadists to do so.

“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” said Gadahn, “You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check, and most likely without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”

The newest ISIS magazine article though “suggests numerous ways to kill Westerners,” said the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which monitors jihadi social media. “In order to purchase a firearm in the US, the article recommends going to gun shows or buying online. In another section, it gives tips on the best places to take hostages.”

The latest Rumiyah report suggested that, “Ideal target locations for hostage-taking scenarios include night clubs, movie theaters, busy shopping malls and large stores, popular restaurants, concert halls, university campuses, public swimming pools, indoor ice skating rinks and generally any busy enclosed area, as such an environment [that] allows for one to take control of the situation by rounding up the kuffar present inside and allows one to massacre them while using the building as a natural defense against any responding force attempting to enter and bring the operation to a quick halt. Similarly, characteristics of a good target location include low light conditions, as it grants one the ability to maneuver between the people, taking advantage of the confusion and killing as many of the kuffar as physically possible.”

“A subsection dedicated to luring targets suggested placing fake job or real estate ads on platforms such as Craigslist and eBay,” MEMRI said.

A section of the report called, “Armed with a Firearm,” provides a “scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar who are present. Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response, as was outstandingly demonstrated by the mujahidin who carried out the Bataclan theatre massacre during the course of the blessed Paris raid in which the three soldiers of the Khilafah, armed with assault rifles and hand grenades, stormed the theater, taking up positions and firing at the Crusader citizens present.”

“After having killed and injured many of them, those remaining of the kuffar were taken hostage so as to slow any efforts of the responding kafir armed forces from storming the theater,” the ISIS magazine report said. “The raid was immensely successful, resulting in the harvest of 89 dead Crusader citizens and over 200 wounded. Similarly, Omar Mateen superbly demonstrated this scenario when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites – by Allah’s permission – and wounded 44 others, taking advantage of the slow initial police response and utilizing that window of opportunity to massacre as many of them as he possibly could.”

“If one does not possess any direct or informal contact with any gun dealers, he should abstain from randomly asking people whom they consider ‘trust­worthy’ for help in acquiring them, as in many cases this can lead to one falling into the trap of police sting operations or, at the very least, bringing upon oneself unnecessary suspicion,” the report said, nothing, “Other methods of obtaining firearms in the West include raiding one of the hundreds or maybe thousands of hunting and tactical military stores by ramming one’s vehicle through the shop’s door when it’s closed and then entering the shop and seizing as many weapons as one can take. Alternatively, after some simple reconnaissance, one could follow the shop owner after he’s closed for the day, ambush him or run him over with a vehicle, and then take his keys in order to gain access to the store’s arsenal, and any other location where he might be storing firearms and ammunition. Such targets, though potentially offering a considerable gain in terms of ghanimah [war loot], are ambitious in nature and should be pursued while keeping in mind that tactical and gun shop owners are normally the type who arm and train themselves, and would not be as averse to engaging in a firefight when attacked.”

In “luring targets,” the report said, “Those residing in the lands of disbelief will surely note the ease and simplicity in achieving the confidence and trust of a disbeliever. Portraying oneself to them as harmless gives them the impression that they are secure and free from danger. This deceptive approach of luring the kafir is something that can be easily accomplished through various methods.”

For example, ISIS said, “Advertising a Job. Advertising a fake job by way of posting one’s ad at a local unemployment center will undoubtedly attract a response, and one may then filter out one’s sought after target (i.e. any male kafir) by advertising a job that is likely to attract that type of person. As an example, one might advertise a job vacancy that Muslims would not seek, or that may only appeal to men. After garnering a significant amount of applicants, one can then arrange the ‘job interview’ location and times, spacing out the applicants’ appointment times so as to give oneself time to subdue classified sections, or by means of online sites for classified advertising, or by simply writing or printing out ‘For Rent’ advertisement posters which can be stuck on walls, lampposts or in local store windows within the vicinity of the property in question, leaving a contact number that one can be reached on. In order for the advertisement not to attract large families – thus making it difficult to initiate an attack, especially if one is alone in his operation – the advertisement should be for a small single room or studio apartment. This will help ensure that the viewer comes alone. It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students.’”

Continuing, ISIS said, “Second-hand buy and sell groups” are also a good source. “Online sales by way of buy and sell websites such as Craigslist, Gumtree, eBay, the Loot and others are an alternative means to luring one’s victims. In many cases, the collection of the product must be done in person – when the buyer and seller reside in the same country – especially when the product being advertised for sale is high in value or large in size. The advertisement should specify that collection and payment is only available in person and that only cash is accepted. Also, the item being advertised should be something that requires the victim to enter one’s property. For example, a car wouldn’t require the target to enter the seller’s property as the vehicle would be expected to have been parked in the driveway or in front of the property.”

“It is like­wise important to be realistic when advertising and not advertise something far below its valued price, as this can attract the attention of authorities searching for stolen goods or possibly attract other suspicions,” the ISIS guide said. “The viewing and collecting of the item should be arranged to be at the location where one seeks to carry out his operation. Upon the target’s arrival, one can then proceed to initiate his attack.”

The article emphasized that, “In order to ensure the success of the operation, there are a few important points to remember and some prior measures to be taken.”

First is, “The remembrance of Allah, and constantly reminding oneself that this action is worship, and that Allah has obliged us to ‘kill the mushrikin’ wherever we find them, and to ‘fight the disbelievers who are closest’ to us.”

Also, “Having a location in which to execute an operation is a necessary requirement and every site where one is intending to initiate his massacre should have the appearance of the location which was used as a method by which to lure them. In practical terms, this means that if the method used to lure them was a false advertisement for a house or apartment for rent, then the location should be a house or an apartment, and if the method used to lure them was a job application, then the location should resemble, in some way, a place that relates to work, such as an office, even if that requires renting the premises.”

“Having a room specifically reserved for the disposal of the bodies of the targets is also important for the obvious reason of not alerting those intended victims entering the property after them,” the ISIS guide on killing infidels explained. “One must space out the arrival times of one’s victims, thus granting him the ability to initiate his attack while they are alone. One should not initiate his attack until the target has fully entered the property and is comfortable, so as to avoid any struggle and prevent the chance of him fleeing.”

ISIS continued, saying, “It is essential to have a suitable weapon for one’s operation, i.e.: a strong, sharp knife, and possibly a bat or a small club that one may use to subdue the victim by striking them over the head before slaughtering them.”

“One should” also “have present with him at the location some easy means of restraining the targets, such as handcuffs, which are widely available for sale to the general public. A more discrete alternative is to purchase what are known as plastic cable ties (‘zip ties’), which are also commonly used as restraints,” ISIS said. “One should ensure that if there are any screams from his victim, they do not result in the operation being compromised. This can be resolved by simply having a background noise that drowns out any other sounds, such as raising the volume of the television, radio, etc.”

The ISIS guide continued, saying, “The focus of the discussion thus far has been on gaining control over multiple kuffar – either by storming an enclosed public site, or luring them to an enclosed private location, thereby making it extremely difficult for them to flee – and then dispatching them either in an immediate or near-immediate time frame. However, in order for the operation to gain wide publicity and more effectively plant terror into the hearts of the disbelievers, one can keep some of his victims alive and restrained, making for a more lengthy and drawn-out hostage scenario. One may then notify the authorities, explaining to them that he is a soldier of the Islamic State and informing them of what he has just done.”

“This will, of course,” ISIS stated, “result in his location being surrounded, and eventually stormed, by armed forces. In such a scenario, he can delay their entry by using the surviving hostages as human shields – only keeping alive those necessary for this purpose. The intention of this delay is therefore only to prolong the terror, as the ideal scenario is that they storm the location and he is killed as a shahid [martyr] – inshaallah – after having inflicted upon the kuffar a just massacre.”

ISIS calls on Muslims in France to launch election day attacks

(THE FOREIGN DESK) — ISIS has called upon Muslims in France to “kill candidates” and “burn down polling stations” as the country prepares to vote in the second round of the presidential election this weekend.

An article appearing in the French edition of the terror group’s monthly propaganda magazine “Rumiyah” addresses all Muslims in France stating: “Don’t forget your duty as a Muslim. Choose a candidate to kill & polling station to burn.”

Likening Western democracies to ‘taghut’ or idol worship, the Islamic State advises supporters to instead put their faith in Allah over a ‘false deity’ and not vote in this weekend’s crucial runoff between Centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron and his rival, Right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen in which Macron is widely expected to emerge the winner.

Addressing the option of voting for one candidate over the other as the ‘lesser of the two evils’ (presumably a reference to Macron), the writer rejects the argument, because both candidates are ‘taghut’ or idolaters.

Instead, the article advises supporters to not stand idly on the sidelines but instead to destroy ‘idolatrous’ voting booths, calling them “places of shirk” or sin.

Seeking to draw inspiration from history, the writer references the Biblical Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) who destroyed the idols of his father’s household.

“Our father Ibrâhîm was thrown into the fire by his people after having destroyed and denigrated their idols,” notes the author, before concluding with a chilling message “Burn these places of shirk (sin), kill the candidates, the voters and the polling station staff. Spare no disbelievers.”

Ignoring former Muslims to our detriment

(UNDERSTANDING THE THREAT) — Many men and women have left Islam and courageously speak truthfully about what Islam teaches and the threat it poses to the civilized world.

These are people grew up being taught about the obligation to wage jihad, that taking Jews and Christians for friends is unlawful because it is prohibited by Allah in the Koran, that non-Muslims are the “worst of all creatures” (Koran 98:6), and that the purpose of Islam is to impose sharia (Islamic Law) on the entire world.

We in the non-Muslim world can learn a lot from these people.

Are we hearing them?

As a Special Agent in the FBI (1996-2008), UTT Founder/President John Guandolo worked with muslim assets/informants who did dangerous and difficult work on behalf of our nation and the FBI. While they did not adhere to sharia, they identified themselves as “muslims.”

Through this work, Mr. Guandolo came to know about an Imam from Uganda who converted to Christianity. The Imam wrote his story in March of 2007, and it included details of growing up in Islam, training to become an Imam, and what Islam teaches. John Guandolo had this story translated into English and then disseminated it inside the FBI as well as to Christian organizations to support their work in Islamic nations.

A brief summary of the story is below which gives readers an insight into the true intentions of Islam. It reveals Islam is a totalitarian system which enslaves people who are a part of it:

“My name is Mayanja Yiusf. I was born into a Muslim family in Uganda…When I came of age, I enrolled for studies in Islam and Arabic which took six years: three years of Islam and three years of Arabic. I trained in Uganda and Sudan and I became a prominent Imam and spoke at many mosques in and outside Kampala. I was a leader of a Muslim Association called Al-Dawahti…I was on the council of Tabliqs and my paternal uncle is the leader of that sect in Uganda.

“I was born and raised a Muslim, but now I have left that life behind…In light of the crisis in the world today, and because of the ongoing strategies to attack Christians at every level, may this also be a warning to all peoples everywhere, that Islam is obtaining dominance and is arming itself for continued war on all things not of Islam. There is little time left to reach the many innocent Muslims who wish they could escape from the violent slavery of Islam.

“I tell you my story while I am still alive. You see, as a Muslim who has left the faith, my days may be numbered. I have lived under the threat of death since I left my father’s household, only until now, they have not succeeded.

“Lest you think that the religion of Islam is promoting the love of God and fellow man, here are just a few of the works that Islam engages in today:

“It is not just the “radical fundamentalists” or jihadis who participate in the terror of today. Do you not know that it is against the Koran to refuse help to those who are in Jihad?

“There is a strategy called the “New Mosque Movement” which seeks to begin building mosques and schools and clinics all over the world. Just look around and you can see, in Africa, South America, England, and France, and even in America. The mosques are the centers of political thought as well as religious practice, but then again, those two are inseparable in Islam.

“Muslim fathers will gladly kill their sons and daughters if they disobey or leave the religion.

“Muslim groups are sending Muslims to Christian places for information. They spy everywhere, especially where there is freedom of movement…They start non-profits and organizations everywhere, many with the purpose to intimidate Western societies. In the US, CAIR and organizations like them are funded to push the free countries to accept them and their religion and practices. They threaten to sue and intimidate if they don’t get their way.

“Wherever they begin to operate in villages, towns, etc they threaten others, especially moderate Muslims, and even other Imams who are not as aggressive as the jihadists…Peace in Islam means that the countries are operating under the rule of Islam, Sharia Law, and with religious leaders in charge. That is their peace.

“There are no innocent civilians for the jihadist. All may be killed because they are merely part of the evil societies to be cleansed.

“I am proud to be a Christian now because the Almighty God of the Christians fights for himself. he doesn’t request or persuade anybody to fight, but instead reconciles people to Himself. He says that vengeance should be left to him alone. I hope the reader is able to distinguish between the God of Christians, Jehovah, and Allah…You are hereby invited to think about this: the Islamic faith does not encourage any believer to reason out who Allah is. The day you will reason about what you were taught in Islam, will be the day you are released from bondage and you will see the light of Christ.”

UTT believes there is a lot to learn from individuals who leave Islam and speak truthfully about the threat it poses to those inside and outside Islam who do not adhere to the sharia and all of its obligations.

To defeat an enemy we must clearly identify the threat. The threat the civilized world faces today is not from “violent extremists” or “radical Islam” or any other euphemism we put on the face of it. The threat, as 100% of the enemy clearly states, comes from Islam which commands its adherents to impose sharia on the earth through all means necessary.

Speaking truth is never wrong. For the sake of those enslaved by Islam, it is the loving thing to do.
