Are all other religions in the world united against Muslims? Yes, says the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the world’s most powerful terrorist organization.

In its latest propaganda magazine, Dabiq, ISIS says, “So the kuffār – whether they are Catholic, Protestant, or Orthodox Christians, whether they are Orthodox, Conservative, or Progressive Jews, whether they are Buddhists, Hindus, or Sikhs, whether they are capitalists, communists, or fascists – they are ultimately allies of one another against Islam and the Muslims.”

Further, ISIS has given its reasons why it thinks so. “This is because Islam – the religion of truth and fitrah – is the greatest threat to their religions of falsehood, all of which are at war with the inborn nature of man,” said ISIS in the digital magazine Dabiq.

The terrorist outfit also believes that other religions and political establishments are against Islam because the tawāghīt and dajājilah (plural of dajjāl) of these false religions fear losing control of their flocks of blind sheep and the wealth contained in their wooly pockets.

“This is also because the flocks of blind sheep fear losing their animalistic societies and carnal cultures that serve their lusts, desires, and doubts at the expense of reviving and nurturing the fitrah within their dead hearts,” said the article in Dabiq magazine.

Accordingly, ISIS says, Islam is the greatest threat to all of their immediate “interests” and it only makes sense for them to unite into various coalitions against their common enemy.

And yet, according to ISIS, despite this, they continue to have partisan and sectarian animosity that reaches the level of war and bloodshed. And they compete amongst each other as well to obtain the larger following of blind sheep and to continue to draw wealth from these followers to their own gluttonous pockets, ISIS said in its 66-page Dabiq magazine.

They meanwhile never learn from the lessons of the past and decide instead to follow the footsteps of those nations who were destroyed by Allah for their arrogance, said ISIS. Therefore, according to ISIS, they will continue to get stung from the same hole multiple times.

What Is Islamic State?

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Islamic State (IS) is a modern militant organization.

With a strong force of more than 30,000 fighters under its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS is attacking different nations with the aim to set up a large Islamic State called the Caliphate or an independent country.

Currently, ISIS holds a state which is at least equivalent to the geographical area of the U.K. But it has already planned to move beyond Iraq and Syria in order to expand its regime. As its next target is Europe, it has started attacking top European countries including France and Russia.

Recently, ISIS claimed responsibility for the Nov. 13 Paris attacks in which 132 people died. Earlier, when the Russian airstrikes hit ISIS in Syria, the ISIS militants succeeded in downing a Russian passenger plane in retaliation, resulting in the deaths of 224 passengers. Meanwhile, ISIS has renewed its threat to launch more attacks against Russia.
