As authorities continue to investigate a deadly bomb blast in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, that killed at least 19 people and injured more than 100 others on Monday — an explosion that had all the markings of a terrorist attack — a shocking terror manifesto has been uncovered in Pakistan. An independent, investigative news organization called the American Media Institute (AMI) says that U. S. intelligence officials believe the newly discovered Islamic State document is comparable to Hitler’s Mein Kampf, in which he clearly outlined his political ideology and future plans for Nazi Germany.
The 32-page document entitled “A Brief History of the Islamic State Caliphate (ISC), The Caliphate According to the Prophet,” blames Israel for creating conditions that led to the rise of the Islamic State. It also, unbelievably, refers to President Obama as the “Mule of the Jews” for supposedly supporting Israeli aggression in the region.
According to the AMI: “The document serves as a Nazi-like recruiting pitch that attempts to unite dozens of factions of the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban into a single army of terror. It includes a never-before-seen history of the Islamic State, details chilling future battle plans and urges al-Qaeda to join Islamic State.”
The undated Islamic State manifesto also advocates triggering all-out war in India that would, according to the AMI analysis, “provoke an Armageddon-like confrontation with the United States.”
The battle plan to “end the world” is described in six phases (three of which have already passed) – ripping pages from al-Qaeda’s original plans to defeat the west, in a graphic illustration of how ISIS sees itself as the true heirs to Osama Bin Laden’s legacy.
In addition to targeting Israel and the United States as enemies of the Islamic caliphate, the document reportedly reads like a call to arms for terrorists and advocates the uniting of various terror organizations and factions to upend Arab governments friendly to the West.
The document urges followers of al-Qaeda and the Taliban to join the Islamic State in overthrowing Arab governments who have relations with the U.S. and Israel, unlike al-Qaeda, which believed it was “important to weaken the U.S before launching an armed revolt in Arab states and establishing a caliphate.”
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal center for human rights who heads the Center’s Digital Terrorism and Hate Project, argues that this explicit declaration by Islamic State radicals needs to be taken very seriously. Rabbi Cooper says we must avoid the terrible mistake made in the 1930’s when Hitler revealed his plan for world domination and people refused to believe that he meant what he said.
The American Media Institute, which was founded by veterans of The Wall Street Journal and Reader’s Digest. quotes Cooper as saying: “We did a lousy job predicting what Hitler was going to do in the 1920s, 1930s – honestly, we blew it. It’s hard to take seriously or believe that such hatred was real or would be possible.”
