ISIL's Plot to Make Us Hate Muslims (Part 2)

From Max Blumenthal. Here he quotes an article from a propaganda magazine produced by ISIL in which the ISIL ideologue expresses his hope that ISIL's terrorist attacks will incite the hatred and marginalization of Muslims in the West.
[ISIL ideologue is quoted saying:] "The presence of the Khilafa [Islamic Caliphate] magnifies the political, social, economic, and emotional impact of any operation carried out by the mujahadin [freedom fighters] against the enraged crusaders,” Dabiq stated. “This magnified impact compels the crusaders to actively destroy the grayzone themselves, the zone in which many of the hypocrites and deviant innovators living in the West are hiding…."

Here, ISIS revealed its intention to unravel the fabric of Western civil society — what it calls the "grayzone” — by provoking governments into carrying out disproportionate military reprisals and adopting draconian security measures.

Once repression and Islamophobia in Western societies reaches sufficiently unbearable levels, the author wrote, “The Muslims in the West will quickly find themselves between one of two choices, they either apostatize and adopt the kufri [infidel] religion propagated by Bush, Obama, Blair, Cameron, Sarkozy, and Hollande in the name of Islam so as to live amongst the kuffar [infidels] without hardship, or they perform hijrah [emigrate] to the Islamic State and thereby escape persecution from the crusader governments and citizens.” (Max Blumenthal, Alternet, November 16, 2015.)
We must not play into ISIL's hands.
