If the mainstream narrative about the war against Israel were true, the Islamic State would have no interest in entering Jerusalem. The Islamic State knows what Barack Obama, John Kerry, Ban Ki-moon, and political leaders all over the West do not know, or pretend not to know: that the “Palestinian” war against Israel is a jihad. It is not about land. It is not about “settlements.” It is not about “occupation.” It is an act of obedience to the command to “drive them out from where they drove you out” (Qur’an 2:191) — the Qur’anic basis for the idea that any land that once was ruled by Muslims belongs by right to Islam forever.
Good questions from Pamela Geller: “Did the Israelis ‘steal the land’ belonging to the Islamic State? Is Israel ‘occupying’ the Islamic State? Is the Israeli government allowing Jews to build ‘settlements’ on land belonging to the Islamic State? Will the UN condemn Israel for oppressing the Islamic State and acting ‘disproportionately’ against it if it takes out any base the Islamic State establishes in Sinai?”
“ISIS ‘to set up Islamic Caliphate in Sinai,'” ANSAmed, November 3, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
(ANSAmed) – CAIRO, NOVEMBER 3 – The Islamic State (ISIS) has issued a statement saying that an Islamic Caliphate will be established in the Sinai, calling it the ”first step towards the invasion of Jerusalem”. The statement threatens Egyptian security forces, which were suffered an attack on October 24. ISIS urged jihadists in the region to ”destroy police checkpoints and stations, launch RPGs at their gatherings and show the world that the Rule of God must be imposed”.
