A video address to the Georgian people on behalf of the Islamic State has been released on the internet. Fighters speaking Georgian address the Muslims living in Georgia, calling on them to support the ‘Islamic Caliphate’ and threatening to establish a ‘Caliphate’ in Georgia.
“I would like to address the faithless people living in Georgia that have been fighting Islam for a long time. Everybody who has acted against Islam, no matter in Iraq or Afghanistan, will be judged by God’s law.
God is very strict; therefore we call on you to stop persecuting Muslims. Your actions against Muslims will not go unanswered. Everybody will be held accountable for it.
Soon there will come the time of your beheading. You consider yourselves very far from the Caliphate, thinking we cannot reach Georgia but I would like to remind you of the period when the Caliphate was established in Georgia. The Georgian people were much more courageous then than the enemies of Islam governing Georgia now. The time will come very soon, thanks to God,” one of the fighters declares.
Another fighter threatens Muslim Khojas and Muftis living in Adjara, accusing them of misleading people. “You are not Muslims yourselves. You follow Tahuti and the people also follow your path. Are not you afraid of Allah who has created you by a drop of blood? You will die and appear before Allah. You will pay for what you have done. Be afraid of Allah but not the dirty leaders. Don’t be afraid of their orders you fulfill without hesitation,” the fighters say.
