ISIS recently released the 15th issue of its official magazine Dabiq. This latest issue is titled “BREAK THE CROSS”. The issue focuses on waging war against Christians and the Sign of the Cross.
In the foreword to its magazine, ISIS damns Christians as “cross worshipers,” pagans and idolaters because of their belief in the Holy Trinity. It says Jesus Christ himself was a “slave to Allah” who will return in the last days to wage jihad and “break the crosses”. ISIS encourages followers to build upon the recent success in Normandy France by expanding the attacks to all Christian churches, congregations and pastors. In the recent attack in France, two ISIS terrorists entered a Catholic church and slit the throat of an elderly priest on the altar while he was saying mass. A nun was also critically injured in the attack.
The magazine articles make it perfectly clear that there will be no end to the killing of Christians until all of western civilization embraces Islam:
“The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam.”
Citing analysts at the SITE intelligence group, the Daily Mail and Charisma News report that London, New York City and Washington, D.C. are at the top of the ISIS hit list of cities it plans to target next.
“Our Battle on Your Land Has Not Started Yet Be Upon You Only Waiting”
The Christian Times, in cooperation with the FBI, is reporting that ISIS is creating “Kill Lists” using online church directories to target churches, congregations and pastors in Texas, New York, California and Florida. According to the report, the “kill lists” name nearly 15,000 Americans to be eliminated.
In an article titled “ISIS: CHRISTIANS ARE PAGAN CROSS WORSHIPPERS”, WND author Leo Hohmann reviews the latest issue of Dabiq and provides insight from former FBI counter-terrorism specialist John Guandolo:
“On the one hand, ISIS calls on the population of Europe to abandon their infidelity and accept Islam, the religion of sincerity and submission to the Lord of the heavens and the earth. On the other hand, they threaten continual warfare against those who do not”
Guandolo advises churches to increase security and to use real men who are members of the church. He adds that If they cannot find any men in the church who know how to use weapons, they should close their doors.
The guidance in the new edition of Dabiq is clear. The next phase of Islamic terrorism will target Christian churches, just like in France. The magazine gives firm orders to all the lone-wolfs and ISIS cells operating in America; attack Christians in their churches, immediately.
“We call you to reflect on these questions as the bloodthirsty knights of the Caliphate continue to wage their war of just terror against you.”
“Follow the final messenger, Muhammad g, for in doing so you will be following all of the prophets If you refuse, then we offer you the option to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation. If you refuse, then the only thing between you and us is the sword.” – Abu Sa’d at-Trinidadi
COMMENT FROM OATH KEEPERS FOUNDER, STEWART RHODES:
“If you refuse, then the only thing between you and us is the sword.” – Abu Sa’d at-Trinidadi. That works both ways. The only thing between you and us is the sword. Sounds good. Bring it.
“Guandolo advises churches to increase security and to use real men who are members of the church. He adds that If they cannot find any men in the church who know how to use weapons, they should close their doors.”
That statement is a bit ironic. To “use real men who are members of the church,” you first have to have real men in the church – as in men who act like men and close with, and kill the enemy when he shows up, not like the wimpy Frenchmen in that Catholic church in Normandy. And to think of all the American, British, and Canadian REAL MEN who fought, bled, and died in Normandy, only to have the modern, emasculated, French metro-sexuals flee from the church, screaming like school-girls, as their elderly priest had his throat slit by two Jihadist goblins. What the hell did our men die for? For a France that is now a perfect petri dish full of Jizyah paying dhimminitude? Where the cry is o longer “Vive la France!” but is instead “better a live coward, than a dead hero, let the old priest fend for himself!” My Grandfather on my father’s side fought as an infantryman in the Battle of the Bulge. I am now glad he has long since passed on so he didn’t have to see what has become of the Europe he fought for.
But what about here in America? Are there real men in your church? Are they armed and “switched on” during service, to safeguard the church and those who worship inside? Are the morally, psychologically, and physically prepared to close with and kill the enemy when he shows up? This threat is real, and it is going to happen here. A church will be hit. And it might be yours. Get ready. Go armed, in church, and organize your church men’s group into an armed security force for the church. They must all be armed, since you can’t reason with a jihadist. You can’t “negotiate” with him. The only way to change his mind is with a bullet. I recommend semi-automatic, high capacity handguns of at least 9mm caliber, with at least one spare magazine, and a no-nonsense knife. And then, at a minimum, a couple of shotguns discretely hidden but within easy reach of members of the security team.
And it would be foolish to rely only on armed men inside the church. You need men on the outside too. At the very least, you need a minimum of two armed men outside the church (and ideally they should have rifles nearby, in addition to their handguns), who are watching who approaches the church (more is better, including someone who is not easily seen, such as sitting in a car watching from a distance). Then you need at least two in the main entry way, watching who enters and what they do as they enter. Then you need at least two more carrying concealed in the main room, watching the entrances and the people in the church, not the sermon. And if you really want your pastor/preacher/priest to be safe, then assign at least two men to guard him, within ten feet of him at all times. They are there to push the pastor down out of the line of fire, or to tackle or shoot a close range threat. Think in layers, and in multiple teams of two. No man should work alone. Always in teams of two or more. And they need radios, so they can communicate (and ideally earpieces so they can do so discretely).
And encourage others in the congregation to also go armed, and to join the security team. Get them all trained and practiced in working together, and prepare yourselves for what is coming.
We here at Oath Keepers can, and will help. We would be happy to have our experienced military and police veterans come to your church, do a security assessment, and help to train your men’s group (and the ladies too!) to protect the church. Many of our members have recent training and experience dealing with active shooters, terrorists, and high threat environments (many of them spent considerable time in Iraq and Afghanistan). We can help. Just email us and put “church security training” in the subject line. This is exactly what our Community Preparedness Teams (CPTs) are supposed to be doing – training the community to defend itself. That is job one for a CPT. And given the threat, those CPTs need to give high priority to any church that requests help.
And, if your church is on an ISIS hit list, or if it has received a direct threat, or you otherwise believe your threat-level is very high, then contact us and we will do our best to put a security team of Oath Keepers on your church until you can get one of your own trained up. But the ultimate goal should be for the men in the church to be the ones to guard the church.
Get ready. It is coming.
