The next President of the United States — and his or her advisors — need to carefully study and analyze the latest issue of Dabiq, the full-color propaganda magazine of the Islamic State. So do other world leaders, Members of Congress and Middle East policy-makers. So do you.
Three reasons — in this edition of Dabiq:
Far too many leaders in Washington believe the West is winning the war against ISIS. That is a dangerous fallacy. The sober truth is that we are not winning. ISIS is winning. Yes, ISIS is losing large tracts of territory in Iraq. They are also losing ground in Syria. But their forces are growing. The global reach of their attacks is spreading. Their blood-thirsty version of Apocalyptic Islam is metastasizing.
This is not Al Qaeda 2.0. The Islamic State and their pursuit of the caliphate is something far, far more dangerous. Those who misunderstand the nature and threat of this especially pernicious form of evil are at risk of allowing the country to be repeatedly blindsided by it with catastrophic results.
ISIS LEADERS WANT TO BRING ABOUT THE END OF DAYS
ISIS wants readers to understand their plan to create a global caliphate where everyone submits to Islam comes from the Qur’an and other Islamic scriptures. Regardless of what their critics say, they are emphatic that they are following the true path and that there is a great sense of urgency to obey Allah because the end is very near.
To be clear, it is not wrong necessarily to hold to an eschatology that says the messiah is coming to establish peace and justice on the Earth. Jews and Christians have their own versions of End Times theology, based on the Biblical teachings of the Old and New Testaments. That said, the Bible never calls on Jews and/or Christians to annihilate their enemies to bring about the Kingdom of the Messiah.
However, Apocalyptic Islam teaches exactly this — and this is one of the reasons it is both evil and dangerous.
For policy-makers unfamiliar with the concepts of Apocalyptic Islam, this issue of Dabiqprovides some clear and thus useful language about what ISIS leaders believe:
ISIS LEADERS WANT TO ACHIEVE THE ANNIHILATION OF CHRISTIANITY
Having studied and read through many previous editions of Dabiq, what strikes me about this edition is how directly ISIS leaders are aiming at the theology and eschatology of Biblical Christianity.
What emerges over eighty-some pages is this: ISIS leaders are calling on Christians around the world to renounce the Gospel and embrace their version of Islam or face slaughter at the hands of jihadists today, and ultimate annihilation by Jesus tomorrow, followed by a sentence to eternal damnation in the fires of Hell.
ISIS LEADERS WON’T STOP KILLING UNTIL THEY ACHIEVE TOTAL VICTORY
Finally, I commend to your attention an article titled, “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You.” (p. 30) Consider a few excerpts:
Patriot Assange Has Taken The Gloves Off, She Is Getting Exposed
To date, there is no one on the face of this earth that can deny Hillary Clinton’s ties to terrorist and countries that support Sharia law. The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable. As WikiLeaks continues to release waves of emails from Hillary Clinton proving she provided arms to ISIS and other terrorist groups, another leak has come out against her.
Hillary Clinton developed a master plan when she was Secretary of State. She would approve major weapon deals to countries in exchange for large financial contributions to her “Foundation.” This is called “pay-for-play.” That is highly illegal and unethical, but clearly Hillary can operate above the law. In the leak, it is proven that Hillary was allowing Saudi Arabia to manipulate our visa programs.
There was already strong evidence that Saudi Arabian terrorists exploited the US visa program, but now we KNOW they were granted the opportunity to do so at the behest of Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State.
The documents PROVE Hillary Clinton doubled the number of visas for Saudi visitors to the US, while helping cut a deal with the Kingdom to waive security procedures for Saudi nationals upon their arrival in the US. So, what does that actually mean?
It means that Hillary allowed anyone deemed a “higher up” in the Saudi government to come and go into the US without being vetted or screened. As a refresher, Congress unsealed the 28 pages from the 9/11 Commission Report that proved high ranking Saudi officials funded the terrorists that carried out 9/11. These are the people Hillary associates herself with.
The annual number of non-immigrant visas issued to Saudi nationals soared 93% during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, hitting a record 108,578 in fiscal 2013 and reversing a post-9/11 pause in Saudi visa approvals.
Hillary Clinton was abusing her power as Secretary of State. She was allowing Saudi nationals to come into the US whenever they wanted to buy properties, corporations, and build ties with congressmen so they could have more influence in American politics. In exchange, Hillary has received nearly $25 million from Saudi Arabia alone.
Before leaving office, Clinton helped negotiate a little-noticed January 2013 administration deal with Riyadh to allow Saudi visa-holders to enter the US as “trusted travelers” and bypass the normal border security process. The next year, the State Department issued an all-time-high 142,180 Saudi visas, consular data show.
Obama and Hillary have opened the floodgates to more than 709,000 Saudi nationals, most of whom applied for student or business visas, records show. It’s as if 9/11 never happened to them and 19 Saudi terrorists never infiltrated the country on rubber-stamped visas.
Saudi Arabia has so much influence in this country now that if we ever defy them or their requests, they could activate the thousands of sleeper cells they have here to carry out something similar to 9/11. We can thank Hillary Clinton and Obama for all of this!
