Islamic State wants you to know the top six reasons why it hates Western civilization in the latest issue of its propaganda magazine Dabiq.
The issue released Sunday is titled “Break the Cross,” and is focused around what the organization finds wrong about the West and its politicians. An article titled “Why we hate you & why we fight you” gives a thorough explanation for ISIS’s jihad.
1. Western society is full of “disbelievers.”
People “blaspheme” against Allah by simply rejecting the “oneness of Allah,” according to ISIS.
“We have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone,” the author writes. (RELATED: ISIS To Pope: Actually, Islam IS A Religion Of Violence)
The disbelief is also the primary reason for fighting the West, and ISIS will continue until everyone submits “to the authority of Islam.”
2. ISIS hates the freedom Western people enjoy.
The author lists the existence of alcohol, drugs, fornication and gambling, as well as the fact that people “tolerate and even support ‘gay rights,'” as some of the West’s flaws.
3. ISIS appears to be frustrated with the labeling of the June 13 attack against a gay nightclub in Orlando as “an act of senseless violence.”
“One would think that the average Westerner, by now, would have abandoned the tired claim that the actions of the mujahidin – who have repeatedly stated their goals, intentions, and motivations – don’t make sense,” the writer says.

4. The existence of atheism and the “disbelieve in the existence of your Lord and Creator.”
“You witness the extraordinarily complex makeup of created beings, and the astonishing and inexplicably precise physical laws that govern the entire universe, but insist that they all came about through randomness,” the author writes.
5. ISIS hates the West’s crimes against Islam and Muslims, including bombings of land and killings of people.
“As long as your subjects continue to mock our faith, insult the prophets of Allah – including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad– burn the Quran, and openly vilify the laws of the Shari’ah, we will continue to retaliate,” ISIS lists as crimes against Islam.
Crimes against Muslims include “your drones and fighter jets bomb, kill, and maim our people around the world.”
6. ISIS hates the West for “invading our lands,” and it will continue to fight until everything has been reclaimed.
“As long as there is an inch of territory left for us to reclaim, jihad will continue to be a personal obligation on every single Muslim,” the article states.
