Companies such as Ericsson, Scandia, Volvo, Ikea, Electrolux… will be legitimate targets. You have been warned.

Now your children, daughters and sisters will die, just like our brothers, sisters, and children.
Our actions will speak louder than words. As long as you don’t stop your war against Islam, mocking the Prophet, and your stupid support for the Pig Vilks.
Now it’s time to strike, don’t wait any longer. Come forward with whatever you’ve got, even if it’s only a knife. I know you’ve got more coming up.
Don’t fear anybody, don’t fear anyone.
Apologies to my family: I never went to the Middle East for work or to make money. I went for jihad.
