The Islamic State (ISIS) branch in “Bayt al-Maqdis,” an Arabization of the Hebrew Holy Temple and a term for Jerusalem, has started distributing publications explaining ISIS’s platform, in a campaign to expand its influence in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
On the opening page of the publication by ISIS in “Palestine” is written “this is our position, this is our worldview, these are our founding principles. …The liar will not be left with an excuse, and the supporters will not be left with doubt.”
A large ISIS symbol is drawn on the center of the page, including the oath of allegiance to Islam that reads “there is no God but Allah.” Along with it appears a ring of Mohammed, the founder of Islam, with three words on it: Allah, Prophet, Mohammed.
Jihad holy war in the path of Allah is a commandment for all to “liberate the Muslim lands,” states the publication, emphasizing that there’s an obligation to fight the police and army of “the rule of tyranny and heresy.”
From the statement, it can be inferred that ISIS is calling for its followers to attack the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Judea and Samaria, and Hamas in Gaza, framing such a coup as a religious command.
The publication stresses that Jews and Christians will no longer enjoy “defense” among the Muslims as it claims was practiced in the past, calling for the non-Muslims to reach a new agreement with the Islamic State that aims for global domination.
Addressing the PA, the local ISIS branch added that any agreement reached with the “occupier” does not obligate Muslims, and is completely worthless.
The threats on the PA and Hamas come as Israeli security sources estimate hundreds of Hamas terrorists have been steadily switching over to ISIS, viewing Hamas as “too moderate” in comparison.
An ISIS terror cell was recently busted in Hevron too, in an area controlled by the PA.
ISIS already reportedly has a foothold in Gaza where it took an active part in last summer’s terror war against Israel, and where it claimed a bombing attack on the French Cultural Center last October.
