ISIS may be on the run in Iraq, but it is still alive and well in various pockets of the world and has many soldiers who continue to call for jihad.
For example, an Islamic State fighter in Syria has recently released a video calling for Australian believers to join the fight in the Pacific.
Abu Adam al-Australi is featured in the second edition of a propaganda video series, called “Inside the Khilafah,”, in which various militants recite verses from the Quran as they stand in front of the ruined Syrian city of Raqqa.
He chants in Arabic: “Kill them wherever you find them.”
“Unquestionably, the victory from Allah is near,” Abu Adam al-Australi declared in a video released by ISIS propaganda wing, Al Hayat Media Center.
“To the Muhadeen in Australia … you should go aid your brothers in the fight against the crusader government of the Philippines,” he said.
To those unable to join in fighting on the ground, al-Australi gave encouragement to “inflict terror against the kuffar [infidels]” and “punish them for their crimes against the Muslims.”
“Make the land of the Crusaders [Western countries] your battlefield. They are frontiers of war,” he said.
“If you are a tradesman, use your nail gun. If you’re a truck driver, ram their crowds until their streets run with their filthy blood. … Or, pour petrol over their houses while they’re asleep and engulf their houses with flames.”
Australia is considered a key target to ISIS due to its role in the wars in Afghanistan and Syria. Authorities say 13 significant terror plots have been foiled since 2014.
Last week, Australian counter-terrorism authorities raided homes in suburbs across Sydney, foiling an alleged bomb plot against an Etihad Airways flight.
