“Belligerent” because they are opposing the hegemony of Sharia, and hence are kuffar harbi, infidels at war with Islam.
Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) jihadists, in the most recent edition of their propaganda magazine Rumiyah, have reportedly released “unseen” pictures of “belligerent Christians” executed by the jihadist group in the Philippines.
“The soldiers of the Khilafah in East Asia stormed the city of Marawi in the southern Philippines on the island of Mindanao, chased out the local police and the military, and raised the banner of the Islamic State,” the jihadists wrote in the latest issue of Rumiyah, titled “The Jihad in East Asia.”
The new issue focuses on ISIS’s ongoing operations in the Christian-majority nation of the Philippines, where the terrorist group has been clashing with government forces, particularly in the country’s only “Islamic city” of Marawi.
In late May, Filipino jihadist groups loyal to ISIS, Abu Sayyaf and the Maute fighters, captured the city, and the government forces have been trying to liberate the Marawi since.
In Rumiyah, the leader of ISIS’s East Asia branch incites Muslims to “teach the Crusaders that zero hour has arrived.”
“Our meeting will be at Washington and Moscow,” writes Rita Katz, the director of the SITE Intelligence Group that tracks jihadi groups online via Twitter:
ISIS “shows unseen picture of executions of ‘belligerent Christians’ by pointblank gunshot after sieging #Marawi,”…
ISIS released its latest issue of Rumiyah during Ramadan, considered the holiest month for Muslims and a time when Islamic extremists encourage martyrdom and jihad.
