ISIS does not adhere to Islamic ideology.

Is it really a coincidence that ISIS adheres to Jewish principles of warfare instead of Islamic principles?

According to Jewish law, it is considered permissible to do harm to innocent civilians, including children and the elderly, if they belong to a people that are hostile towards Jews (such as the Amelekites) or if they are citizens of one of the seven countries in Canaan, which were designated as territory granted by God.
Nevertheless, Islamic law prohibits it.
Moreover, Jewish law does not impose any restriction on the arbitrary use of physical force to suppress the Amelekites or any other antagonistic individuals inside the territory of Jerusalem.1

In accordance with Islamic law, the political authority, known as the imam, is responsible for strategizing and coordinating military offensives. Unidentified assailants are incapable of taking such actions. Islam unequivocally condemns indiscriminate acts of terrorism.2

Is terrorism synonymous with jihad?

Eliminating twenty years of anti-Muslim war propaganda, the consistent attacks against Palestinians by the Irgun and Lehi Jewish terrorist groups in the early 20th century demonstrated the application of Jewish law.3
Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Gaza strip consistently engage in acts of terrorism against Palestinians in accordance with Jewish principles of warfare. The 1994 Ramadan terror attack, in which Baruch Goldstein targeted Palestinians praying in a Hebron mosque, resulting in the deaths of 29 individuals and the injuries of 125, is widely recognized as a prominent example of the implementation of Jewish laws of warfare. Religious Jews, including Israeli government figures such as Itamar Ben Gvir, pay tribute to the actions of Baruch Goldstein by displaying his photo in their homes.

Religious Jews are aware that Goldstein is a devout adherent of Jewish law, which unfortunately includes engaging in terrorist attacks against innocent individuals, regardless of their gender or age.

ISIS adheres to Jewish military doctrine. This is the reason why ISIS encourages individuals without any specific connection to enter churches and mosques and carry out acts of violence, such as shooting or bombing innocent people, including men, women, and children. An example of such an event occurred recently at a church in Turkey.
As we have often said, Israel is believed to have influence over ISIS, which may help to explain its activities.
Nevertheless, ISIS remains significantly accountable for deviating from Islamic law and adopting abhorrent behaviors endorsed by Judaism, regardless of the real influence of Israel.

We are adherents of the Islamic faith who adhere to its teachings and advocate for the welfare of the Muslim community. We address those who support ISIS and those who follow the Madkhali ideology. We do not endorse Israel as Jewish. Comprehend the information, despite your difficulty in understanding.

It was also carried by European Jews who,... migrated to Palestine to inherit their ancestral country … In this modern version of the biblical narrative, the Palestinian population turned into 'Canaanites', supposed to be morally inferior to the Jews, and of course the Arabs were never considered their equals … The Bible was the instrument used to suppress the enemy".
  2. ⇧ From the Quran:
    Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 190: "And fight in the Way of Allah against those who fight against you, but be not aggressive. Surely Allah loves not the aggressors." This verse clarifies that fighting is only permissible in self-defense and never for aggressive or indiscriminate violence.
    Surah Al-Maidah, Verse 32: "Whoever kills a soul - unless for the soul of another or for injustice in [the] land - it is as if he has killed all of humanity. And whoever saves a life - it is as if he has saved all of humanity." This verse establishes the immense value of human life and condemns taking it unjustly.
    Surah An-Nisa, Verse 92: "And do not kill the one whom Allah has declared inviolable except by right [through justice]." This verse emphasizes the sanctity of human life and prohibits killing innocent people, including in times of war.
    From the Hadith: Sahih Bukhari, Book 4, Hadith 739: "The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 'He who kills a person having a treaty with the Muslims will not smell the fragrance of Paradise, although its fragrance can be smelled from a distance of fifty years.'" This Hadith prohibits harming those who have made peace treaties with Muslims, highlighting the importance of peaceful coexistence.
    Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith 6218: "The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 'Whoever intentionally kills a person having a covenant, we will kill him on the Day of Resurrection.'" This Hadith reiterates the severe consequences of violating agreements and killing innocent people.
    Sunan an-Nasa'i, Book 32, Hadith 2809: "The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 'Beware! I forbid you from harming the weakling, the woman, or the child.'" This Hadith specifically protects vulnerable populations, further emphasizing the rejection of indiscriminate violence.
    These are just a few examples, and there are many other verses and Hadith that condemn terrorism and violence against innocent people. It is important to remember that the vast majority of Muslims abhor terrorism and violence, and that these acts are contrary to the true teachings of Islam.
