A video posted on the Internet on September 21, shows millions of dollars in cash as well as gold ingots allegedly captured by ISIS in the home of former Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama Al-Nujayfi. In the video, an unidentified ISIS member warns Al-Nujayfi that "just like we took your money, we shall chop off your head." The ISIS member said that the video was filmed on August 11, 2014.

Man: In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. Blessings and prayers upon our Prophet Muhammad and his Companions. This is the money of Osama Al-Nujayfi, former speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Allah's curses upon him. Observe, oh Muslims, all this money, estimated in the billions. These are gold ingots. Take a look at them. These are gold ingots. See these dollars. There are hundreds of thousands of dollars here. Maybe even millions of dollars. Praised be Allah, who enabled the mujahideen of the Islamic State in Nineveh Province to seize (this money).


This money has returned to its rightful owners – the poor. This money belongs to the poor. Those pigs used to indulge themselves with this money at the expense of the poor. Praised be Allah for enabling us to restore this money to the (ISIS) treasury. Praise be to Allah.

This is 10/15/1435 – 8/11/2014.


This money was found in one of the homes of the apostate Osama Al-Nujayfi. Let that pig watch this money. Oh Al-Nujayfi, Allah willing, just like we took your money, we shall chop off your head, Allah willing.
