An ISIS spokesman by the name of Abu Karimah Indonesi, who is from Indonesia, sent out this message to the Islamic world, calling for the murder of Christians, encouraging them to run over Christians with cars and get it on film:
Kill any salibis [Christians] you can find. Salibis [Christians] can be easily found. …You can use anything. For example, a car. …Process your target. The bigger the better. But if it’s difficult, it’s more important in jihad to simplify and do it sooner… Video the process … run them over while passing.
We found Abu Karimah’s Twitter page:
Karimah praises the destruction of Christian churches and crosses. Here is one photo found in his Twitter in which he refers to Christians as “infidel kafir”:
In the last photo the Indonesian terrorist quotes from the Koran where it says:
Indeed, they are enemies to me, except the Lord of the world (Koran 26:77)
Here is the full report:
Indonesian fighters who have joined Islamic State in Syria are using social media to encourage fellow jihadists back home to murder Christians by any means necessary.
There are some 23 million Christians in Indonesia, as well as large numbers of tourists – including many Australians – visiting places such as Bali who are also followers of the faith and could be targets of such “lone wolf” attacks.
In September last year, IS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani urged supporters to kill “non-believers” in response to US-led air strikes against its forces.
Although there have been a spate of attacks – and attempted attacks – apparently inspired by the call to arms, it is yet to happen in Indonesia.
But one Indonesian fighter in Syria – who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Karimah Indonesi – has urged other radical Islamists to do the same.
In an exchange with a fellow jihadist apparently frustrated by his inability to travel to Syria, Abu Karimah gives advice on “jihad made easy”.
Asked by an Indonesian-based jihadist if weapons are needed, he replies: “Our leader makes jihad easy for you. Kill any salibis you can find. Salibis can be easily found.”
Salibis is a favoured word of jihadists to denote “followers of the cross”, or Christians.
“Process your target. The bigger the better. But if it’s difficult, it’s more important in jihad to simplify and do it sooner,” the instructions continue.
“You can use anything. For example, a car. Video the process … run them over while passing.”
The call to film the murder also mimics advice by IS spokesman Adnani given in September.
The urging of the random, opportunistic and low-tech attacks comes as Indonesia
grapples with a surge of its citizens pledging allegiance to IS, which has yet to be outlawed in the country.
Thousands of Indonesians have believed to have taken the oath of devotion to IS while between 300 and 700 Indonesians have travelled to Syria to join jihadists and the self-proclaimed caliphate.
