“We want to return to Tajikistan and fight infidels there.” And everywhere else, including this country. The Islamic State has declared its intention to fight against the entire world and conquer it for Islam. They will not conquer the world, but they will kill many, many people as they try. Obama say, “Fore!”
“IS Militants Asked Baghdadi For Permission To Fight ‘Infidels’ In Tajikistan,” RFERL, January 5, 2015:
Militants from the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq have published a video saying that they have asked permission from the group’s senior leadership to wage jihad in Tajikistan, RFE/RL’s Tajik service has reported.
A bearded ethnic Tajik who appears in the video and who claims he is fighting with IS in Iraq says that Tajik militants in Islamic State approached the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, with a proposal that they return home to “fight infidels” in Tajikistan.
The militant, who gives his nom de guerre as Abu Umariyon and looks to be around 30 years old, has appeared in a number of other videos, according to RFE/RL’s Tajik Service. Abu Umariyon says he is from the small town of Samsolik in the Nurobod district of Tajikistan’s Rasht Valley.
‘We Want To Return To Tajikistan And Fight Infidels There’
Abu Umariyon says that he and his fellow Tajik militants asked Baghadi and Islamic State leaders for permission to go back to Tajikistan and fight with the extremist group Jamaat Ansarullah.
However, Baghdadi did not give his permission.
“The emirs [militant leaders] who passed on their message to Baghdadi told them that right now they have to wait,” the Tajik militant explains.
Jamaat Ansarullah, Tajikistan, And Syria
Jamaat Ansarullah is a banned religious extremist group in Tajikistan. It is not known exactly when it was formed, but it first became known in September 2010 after the group claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in Khujand. Since then the group has issued several videos calling for Tajiks to join it in jihad against “infidels,” according to local media. The group’s leader is purported to be Amriddin Tabarov, also known as Dumullo Amriddin, who is believed to be from the Nurobod district.
In November, 2014 Tajik security officials in Sughd province detained 12 suspected members of the group who were allegedly attempting to recruit locals to join the fighting in Syria. Members of the group are also reportedly fighting in Afghanistan.
Jamaat Ansarullah is not the only militant group in Tajikistan that has been linked to Syria. In December, a court in Tajikistan convicted 11 men of membership in the militant Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU); two of them men had sought to fight in Syria, according to prosecutors.
Although Baghdadi reportedly said that Tajiks in Iraq and Syria cannot return home to wage jihad at this time, a second Tajik militant in the video does not call on Tajiks in Tajikistan to wage jihad at home but says they should come to Syria or Iraq via Turkey and become suicide bombers. The militant warns that if Turkey tries to stop Tajik militants reaching Syria, there will be “explosions” on Turkish soil.
Tajik Militants Acting As IS Highway Patrol In Iraq?
A road is seen in the background of the video, and the Tajik militant says that his job is to inspect those traveling along the road to see that they do not “import cigarettes and alcohol into the town.” The militant says that he has also been tasked with checking to see that women traveling along the road are clad in hijabs, the veil that IS has determined as the approved Islamic clothing for women.
During the video, Abu Umariyon stops a car and speaks accented Arabic to the passengers, according to RFE/RL’s Tajik Service. The passengers say they are not carrying any cigarettes….
