This month, the soldiers of the Khilāfah in Wilāyat Tarābulus captured 21 Coptic crusaders, almost five years after the blessed operation against the Baghdad church executed in revenge for Kamilia Shehata, Wafa Constantine, and other sisters who were tortured and murdered by the Coptic Church of Egypt. The operation was planned by Hudhayfah al-Battāwī (rahimahullāh), wālī of Wilāyat Baghdad at the time, alongside the senior military commander, Abū Ibrāhīm azZaydī (rahimahullāh), both of whom played a crucial role – through their passion and zealousness – in preserving the morale of the Islamic State mujāhidīn after the martyrdom of Abū ‘Umar al-Baghdādī and Abū Hamzah al-Muhājir (rahimahumallāh).


At the time, the Islamic State was distant from Egypt and so could not easily target the Coptic crusaders there, but its leadership knew that despite the worldly and sectarian animosity of the kuffār – as groups and individuals – towards each other, {Their adversity among themselves is severe. You think they are together, but their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a people who do not reason} [Al-Hashr: 14], the different kuffār still have allegiance to each other in the face of Islam, {And those who disbelieved are allies of one another. If you do not do so, there will be fitnah on earth and great corruption} [Al-Anfāl: 73]. {O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are allies of one another} [Al-Mā’idah: 51].

Therefore, the Islamic State leadership decided to target the Catholic Christians of Baghdad so as to teach the tāghūt of the Copts – Shenouda – that the price of Muslim blood is costly  and so accordingly, if his church persecuted any Muslimah in Egypt, he would be directly responsible for every single Christian killed anywhere in the world when the Islamic State sought its just revenge… And the deaths did not begin until after the crusaders had expressed their arrogance and refusal to execute the righteous demands of the mujāhidīn.


So more than one hundred crusaders were killed and injured by just five brave istishhādiyyīn from the Islamic State. And the different Christian churches had no one to truly blame but Shenouda for the deaths of their brethren in kufr…

And instead of congratulating the Islamic State on this blessed operation in Iraq executed in revenge for the persecuted sisters, the hizbī ‘Azzām al-Amrīkī began to spew forth in some of his letters what his heart contained of rancor, by defending the Catholics of Europe in the face of the actions of the mujāhidīn! He then strove to act on his personal rancor towards the Islamic State as soon as he became a top leader of al-Qā’idah after the martyrdom of Shaykh Usāmah Ibn Lādin (rahimahullāh).


Azzām al-Amrīkī’s strange attitude towards the Christians was similarly expressed by Ayman adh-Dhawāhirī when he said, “I want to restate our position towards the Coptic Christians. We do not want to get into a war with them because we are busy in the battle against the greatest enemy of the Ummah [America] and because they are our partners in this nation, partners whom we wish to live with in peace and stability” [Risālat al-Amal wal-Bishr – Part 8]. So while the Islamic State targeted the Catholics in revenge for the sisters imprisoned by the Copts, ‘Azzām al-Amrīkī’s commander was wooing the war-waging Copts themselves with feeble words, forgetting, {Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are harsh against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves} [Al-Fath: 29], and {O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion – Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, mighty against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic} [Al-Mā’idah: 54].

And so, five years after the blessed operation in Iraq, Allah (ta’ālā) granted the Islamic State expansion to Libya, Sinai, and elsewhere, allowing it to easily capture the Coptic crusaders – the followers of the dead Shenouda and the supporters of the tāghūt Sisi – as the Salaf said, “The reward for a good deed is another good deed.” And thus, the Islamic State strikes terror directly in the hearts of the Copts after striking terror in the hearts of their Catholic allies before, while the jihād claimants and hizbiyyīn sit back and deliberate – in vain – on what they can do to prevent the further expansion of the Khilāfah…

Finally, it is important for Muslims everywhere to know that there is no doubt in the great reward to be found on Judgment Day for those who spill the blood of these Coptic crusaders wherever they may be found…
