Islamic State’s next target is not Bondi, it’s Muslims living in the West. They just said so.

An article called "The Extinction of the Grayzone" in Islamic State's magazine repeats George W. Bush's rhetoric: "You're either with us or against us".

The first issue of the new Islamic State (or Daesh) publication Rumiyah has achieved widespread media coverage for its eulogy to a dead Australian jihadist, which included the attention-grabbing call for Muslims to “Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House and even in their backyards.”

    Osama bin Laden’s proclamation that “… either you are with the Crusade or you are with Islam.”
    The Crusades are still a source of hostility after 900 years. Better perhaps to leave it to the Crusader nations to resolve.

    Sensible points. Probably when the Crusaders were in Asia Minor some centuries ago, they did not look into fine points of who was who among the infidels whom they were dedicated to removing.
    Currently, the jovial joking about burkinis makes easy western media content but betrays more than a hint of racism among the ‘journalists’ who are cheaply playing to the ignoramus reader-viewer.

    Daesh is real but no more than loose associations of lost souls neither apostate or believer. Their legitimacy is anarchic rather than constructive; neither religious or irreligious. Daesh inhabits a realm in isolation.
    The sole reason being that the world at large in our ignorance, apathy, prejudice has granted space, time and opportunity for such lost souls to prosper, decline and depart. For the world will again prepare a space. For future lost souls to rise, prosper, decline and depart.

    By emphasising this wild propaganda you are surely giving Oxygen to their cause? Internet is alive with this info. already (the nasheeds are quite aurally beautiful) and the poor kaffir illiterates in Sydney and elsewhere shouldn’t really get your help in finding it! The Oz already gives us a daily dose of Islamophobia!

    Anyone who choose to identify as muslim should deal with their co-religionists then get back to the rest of us.
    In the meantime, you broke it, you bought it – social cohesion, assimilation, harmony, community, civilization, little things like that.

    Thanx for this most interesting analysis, which I agree seems to have been missed by the mainstream media I have seen.
