Pakistani Taliban Declares Allegiance To ISIS Caliphate, Calls Upon All Militants In The Region To Do The Same
A Taliban-linked terrorist organization in Pakistan had already pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. Now, in the name of the great and powerful “Allah” and his messenger of mayhem, the Taliban of Pakistan itself has, for all intents and purposes, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State as well without actually saying they’ve pledged allegiance. This Beast is growing and, as it does, Islamists all around the world are thinking to themselves, “Who can fight against it?” …
Revelation 13:4, “And they worshiped the dragon [Satan], for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?’”
By Saud Mehsud and Maria Golovnina, Reuters – “The Pakistani Taliban declared allegiance to Islamic State on Saturday and ordered militants across the region to help the Middle Eastern jihadist group in its campaign to set up a global Islamic caliphate.
Islamic State, which controls swathes of land in Syria and Iraq, has been making inroads into South Asia, which has traditionally been dominated by local Taliban insurgencies against both the Pakistan and Afghanistan governments.
The announcement comes after a September move by al Qaeda chief, Ayman al-Zawahri, to name former Taliban commander Asim Umar as the ’emir’ of a new South Asia branch of the network that masterminded the 2001 attacks on the United States.
Although there is little evidence of a firm alliance yet between IS and al Qaeda-linked Taliban commanders, IS activists have been spotted recently in the Pakistani city of Peshawar distributing pamphlets praising the group.
IS flags have also been seen at street rallies in Indian-administered Kashmir. The trend has been of growing concern to global powers struggling to keep up with the fast-changing nature of the international Islamist insurgency.
In a message marking the Muslim holy festival of Eid al-Adha, the Pakistani Taliban said they fully supported IS goals.
‘Oh our brothers, we are proud of you in your victories. We are with you in your happiness and your sorrow,’ Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said in a statement sent to Reuters by email from an unknown location.
‘In these troubled days, we call for your patience and stability, especially now that all your enemies are united against you. Please put all your rivalries behind you …
‘All Muslims in the world have great expectations of you … We are with you, we will provide you with Mujahideen (fighters) and with every possible support.'” Read more.
Hadith, Muslim 1844, 1851, “Whoever gives his oath of allegiance to a leader and gives him his hand and his heart, let him obey him as much as he can … Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to the Muslim leader) has died a death of jaahiliyyah [like an ignorant non-Muslim in pre-Islamic times]” – The “Prophet” Mohammed
