Dabiq explains that Russia followed the path of its Western brethren after its own disasters in Afghanistan and Chechnya.

After bombing down a Russian airplane a few weeks ago, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has declared that it will continue to strike Russia.
In the 12th issue of its propaganda magazine, Dabiq, ISIS says, “The Islamic State will continue to strike Russia until Sharī’ah returns to all the lands of the Muslims usurped by the crusader Russians and until Russia pays the jizyah in humiliation.”
Under Islamic law, jizyah is a kind of tax imposed by a Muslim state on non-Muslim people residing in a Muslim territory.
ISIS Conflict with Russia
Titled “Just Terror,” the new digital magazine Dabiq explains in an article that Russia followed the path of its Western brethren after its own disasters in Afghanistan and Chechnya. And both the crusader East and crusader West now are at odds over securing their separate interests in Shām as they compete over influence in the region.
According to the Dabiq article, the drunken brown bear – Russia – savagely but clumsily strikes here and there in a manner that has even confused American analysts, think tanks, intelligence agencies, and policy-makers.
And while it is at war with its Western rivals in the Ukraine, it has decided to enter into yet another conflict with the West, by targeting the Sahwah allies of America in Shām, says Dabiq.
Meanwhile, it entered into new fronts against the Islamic State in both Shām and Iraq after the revival of the battlefield in Wilāyat al-Qawqāz. And so, the drunken brown bear – blinded by its blood-thirsty hubris – has decided to throw itself into the hunter’s trap, says Dabiq.
Attack on Russian Passenger Plane
Shortly after the Russian airstrikes began, the resolute soldiers of the blessed Shāmī Wilāyah of Saynā’ succeeded in downing a Russian passenger plane, resulting in the deaths of 224 Eastern crusaders, according to Dabiq.
The Dabiq article says that the operation exacted revenge upon the cross-worshippers for recently killing hundreds of Muslims in Shām, including their women and children.
On “30 September 2015,” according to ISIS, after years of supporting the Nusayrī tāghūt in the war against the Muslims of Shām, Russia decided to participate directly with its own air force in the war.
It was a rash decision of arrogance from Russia, as if it held that its wars against the Muslims of al-Qawqāz were not enough offence. And so after having discovered a way to compromise the security at the Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport and resolving to bring down a plane belonging to a nation in the American-led Western coalition against the Islamic State, the target was changed to a Russian plane, explains ISIS.
A bomb was smuggled onto the airplane, leading to the deaths of 219 Russians and 5 other crusaders only a month after Russia’s thoughtless decision, reveals ISIS.
Further, ISIS offers its justification for the recent attacks on Paris. It says a year earlier, on “19 September 2014,” France haughtily began executing airstrikes against the Khilāfah. Like Russia, it was blinded by hubris, thinking that its geographical distance from the lands of the Khilāfah would protect it from the justice of the mujāhidīn. It also did not grasp that its mockery of the Messenger would not be left unavenged, ISIS explained in the Dabiq article.
Thus, the Islamic State dispatched its brave knights to wage war in the homelands of the wicked crusaders, leaving Paris and its residents “shocked and awed.”
According to ISIS, the eight knights brought Paris down on its knees, after years of French conceit in the face of Islam. A nationwide state of emergency was declared as a result of the actions of eight men armed only with assault rifles and explosive belts.
And so revenge was exacted upon those who felt safe in the cockpits of their jets, ISIS says in the 66-page Dabiq magazine.
