The American Media Institute, an independent investigative news agency, has uncovered a secret Islamic State document in Pakistan which the group says bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf (My Struggle).
In it, ISIS militants reportedly set six phases of operations leading to the end of the world. Phase six, according to the plan, will begin in 2017, when the group says it will begin subjecting all enemies of the global caliphate and Islam will rule in peace.
The 32-page document is interesting for several reasons. First, it was found in the remote tribal regions of Pakistan – to date, an area not officially considered ISIS territory. Secondly, the document draws a strong connection between the initiation of hostilities with the West by al Qaeda in 2001 and ISIS. In other words, ISIS believes it is continuing the work of al Qaeda’s founder, Osama bin Laden.
Like Mein Kampf, the document is reportedly filled with rhetoric against the Jews, as well as Israel and the United States. President Barack Obama is called “the Mule of the Jews” and the Islamic State’s plan to push the world toward Armageddon is seen as a “final solution.”
One U.S. intelligence official, unnamed in AMI’s report, said the document – written in Urdu – shows that ISIS is very gifted at pursuing its agenda.
