Jihadist rapper Denis Mamdou Cuspert, a.k.a. Deso Dogg and Abu Talha al-Almani, released a video jointly with Millatu Ibrahim and the Global Islamic Media Front calling for Germans to emigrate and join the jihad. "We raise the black flags and ride to the battle
to Jerusalem to free our holy city," he said. A number of German Salafists have emigrated to Egypt since Millatu Ibrahim was outlawed in Germany this spring.
The banned German Salafist group Millatu Ibrahim issued a statement on jihadist forums announcing its shift from preaching to jihad, and praising two women as its "first martyrs." The women died in a car accident on Eid al-Adha after emigrating from Germany with their husbands and "many brothers and sisters" to "the land of jihad and martyrdom." Leading members of the group moved to Egypt earlier this year.
