Isil chief propagandist Abu Mohammed al-Adnani

Islamic State threatens ‘calamity for kuffars’ during Ramadan

Islamic State jihadists have threatened “a calamity for kuffars” over the fasting month of Ramadan, at the same time releasing a gruesome new video of unorthodox execution methods.

The chief propagandist for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, released the audio tape of his Ramadan message.

In it, he says that Haditha – west of Ramadi – will be the next town in Iraq to fall under Isil’s sway, and incites more attacks by its followers worldwide. The attacks should be on “kuffars” (infidels), “Crusaders, Shias and Apostates”, he says.

“Be keen to conquer in this holy month and to become exposed to martydom,” he says.

    Lowering people in cages into swimming pools to drown? Mass decapitation by exploding neckrings? Child rape, beating and sexual mutilation of young girls – If you created a fantasy villian that did what ISIS does on a daily basis there would be outrage across the country. But I guess the real world doesn’t require trigger warnings for the protesting class. It’s much easier to get mad about movies like “American Sniper” while drinking your organic fair trade latte and pressing “like” on organizations that support BDS against Israel.

      The ISIS dudes are having a lot of fun doing these things, but they need more weak targets.

    But I thought Ramadan was all about love and peace and that kind of good stuff. That’s what the Star says, at least. I’m so confused.

    I’d drop the word execution, it has some credibility, just use the word murder.
