ISIS on Paris
The ‘Daesh’* statement on the attack (in full):
In the name of Allah, the all merciful, the very merciful Allah the great said: and they thought in truth that their fortresses would defend them against Allah. But Allah came to them from where they weren’t expecting it and launched a terror in their hearts. They were demolishing their gomes with their own hands as well as from the hands of believers. Take a lesson oh you who are wise. Sourat 59, verse 2. […] In a blessed attack which Allah facilitated the causes, a group of believers from the soldiers of the caliphate to whom Allah has given strength and glory targeted the capital of abomination and perversion, the one who lifts the banner of the cross in Europe, Paris. […] A group divorced from this life taking a step toward their enemy, looking for death in Allah’s path, rescuing its religion, its Prophet and its allies and wanting to humiliate its enemies. They were true to Allah and we consider them as such. Allah acquired from their hands and through the fear in the hearts of those encountered on their own land. […] Eight brothers carrying explosive belts and assault rifles took for target places that were carefully chosen in the heart of the capital, in the French stadium during a game between two countries, France and Germany, which the imbecile of France [President Hollande] was present, the Bataclan, where hundreds were present in a party of perversion as well as other targets in the 10th, 11th anf 18th districts simultaneously. Paris is shaking in their shoes and its streets have become very narrow, the death count of the attack is a minimum of 200 and even more injured by the will of Allah. […] Allah facilitated our brothers and gave them what they hoped for, (martyrdom), they activated their explosive belts in the middle of the infidels after they ran out of ammunition. May Allah welcome them among the martyrs and allow us to meet them. And France and those who follow its way must know that there are still principle targets left for the Islamic State and that they [France] will continue to smell death for having taken the lead in the crusade [in Syria] after having insulted our Prophet, after they’ve flaunted their fight against Islam in France, and beaten our Muslim brothers in Caliphate land with their planes that were useless in the smelly streets of Paris. This attack is only the beginning of the storm and a warning for those who want to ponder and learn a lesson. […] Allah is great, the strength belongs to Allah and His messenger and believers, but the hypocrites do not know it. Sourat 63, verse 8.
