'Our Lions Have Infiltrated': ISIS Video Depicts Future Caliphate Located in the West
The pro-ISIS group that in January depicted the invasion of Washington and in February declared "Paris before Rome," depicting a terrorist invasion that began with cells in the countryside outside Paris before attacking the city, today released a new video depicting a global caliphate.
The Al-Abd al-Faqir Media video shows, as described at the beginning, "an imaginary chat in the future between an old immigrant to the land of the caliphate where he talks to his friend 'John' who's a new convert to Islam after Allah has fulfilled his promise and the caliphate reached east and west ... in the near future inshallah."
A young man in a living room labeled as being in Baghdad, wearing khakis and a blue button-down shirt, opens a laptop to a Facebook-styled page with ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the banner photo, an ISIS flag as the profile pic, and his profile name Al-Mohajir.
His clicks to a profile of "John Stephen," a white man with a closely trimmed beard and an image of the White House exploding in flames as his banner photo.
Al-Mohajir strikes up a chat with Stephen, identified as being located in Belgium, who reminisces on the days "when I took pride in sinning with my companions" and says he wishes he would have converted sooner to "this true religion."
Al-Mohajir tells Stephen not to think about the past but "strive for what is coming."
The westerner declares to his Baghdad friend that "the banner of Islam has preceded you, flying in the skies of our country! ... and the parents are eager to meet you."
Al-Mohajir declares that earlier jihad campaigns were "the beginning of the planting... and now the time of harvest came." He then asks about "the status of soldiers of the caliphate with you" in the West.
