It will be the “largest religious cleansing campaign” in history.
The Christian Post reported:
A spokesman for ISIS has claimed in an interview that it’s only a matter of time before the jihadists expand and conquer Europe. He also defended the terror group’s practices of mass enslavement and beheadings, and said that it plans to carry out “the largest religious cleansing campaign” in history, which will include the killing of hundreds of millions of people.
“No, we will conquer Europe one day. It is not a question of if we will conquer Europe, just a matter of when that will happen. But it is certain. … For us, there is no such thing as borders. There are only front lines,” the spokesman, identified only as a German ISIS fighter, told journalist Juergen Todenhoefer in an article for CNN.
“Our expansion will be perpetual. … And the Europeans need to know that when we come, it will not be in a nice way. It will be with our weapons. And those who do not convert to Islam or pay the Islamic tax will be killed.”
ISIS, or the Islamic State as the group is also known, has captured a number of cities across Iraq and Syria, and has become known for beheading prisoners on camera and enslaving religious minorities, including Christians.
The terror group’s mission is to establish an Islamic caliphate across the Middle East region, and eventually the world.
“I think the Islamic State is a lot more dangerous than Western leaders realize,” the jihadist said. “They believe in what they are fighting for and are preparing the largest religious cleansing campaign the world has ever seen.”
Todenhoefer visited the Iraqi city of Mosul, which used to host a large Christian community, before it was taken over by ISIS in June. The jihadists have since imposed Islamic law on the land, forcing people to convert to Islam, pay a tax, or face death.
When asked about Shiite Muslims who don’t share the same beliefs as ISIS, the spokesman said that anyone who refuses to convert will be killed.
