| Islamic State: “Only one way for US to gain victory and that is by taking the Quran out of the hearts of Muslims”

|If we didn’t have learned imams such as John Kerry and David Cameron and
Pope Francis assuring us otherwise, we might almost get the impression
that the Islamic State had something to do with Islam. It’s a good thing
we have such erudite leaders who are so helpful in aiding our
understanding of the enemy ideology.
“‘There is only one way for the US to gain victory,’ ISIS spokesman warns,” Rudaw, May 21, 2016: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A spokesman of the Islamic
State (ISIS) said in a defiant audio message that his group would not be
defeated, even if it loses its strongholds in Syria and Iraq or its
leader is killed in US air strikes.
“Your threats do not frighten us and you will never win over us,” Abu
Mohamed al-Adnani, the official spokesman of the terrorist group, said
in an audio message posted online Saturday. The militant, whose real name is Taha Subhi Falaha, said that even if
ISIS loses its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa or Mosul in Iraq, that would
not amount to defeat, nor would the death of its leader, Abu Bakr
“The loss of Raqqa, Mosul and the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would
not mean that we have lost,” the spokesman said in the 30-minute
recording. He said Western reports about the group growing weaker – as US military officials have recently been saying – are untrue.
“You think defeat is the loss of a city or a land? Were we defeated
when several cities of Iraq were taken away from us and we went to the
desert? Will we lose if you control Mosul, Raqqa and other cities that
were previously controlled by us: Definitely ‘no,’ because defeat is
only the loss of the wish and will to fight.”
Naming several top ISIS leaders that have been killed in US
airstrikes over the past several months, Adnani said their deaths – or
the deaths of other living leaders – would not drive the group to
defeat. “There is only one way for the US to gain victory and that is by
taking the Quran out of the hearts of Muslims,” Adnani claimed.
