Islamic State Tells Supporters To Attack America And France

Nope, ISIS isn’t a threat at all

(Reuters) Islamic State urged its followers on Monday to attack citizens of the United States, France and other countries which have joined a coalition to destroy the militant group.

Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani also taunted U.S. President Barack Obama and other Western “crusaders” in a statement carried by the SITE monitoring website, saying their forces faced inevitable defeat at the militants’ hands. (snip)

Adnani said the military intervention by the U.S.-led coalition would be the “final campaign of the crusaders”, according to the transcript published by SITE.

“It will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated,” he said in the statement, which urged followers to attack U.S., French, Canadian, Australian and other nationals.

The question is, how serious is the threat? ISIS members have been shown to be fanatical and insane. Remember, this is a group that beheads people, puts the heads on spikes, rapes, tortures (real torture), and murders. Ethnic cleansing. Kidnapping. Sexual slavery for children. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are both very concerned. Can ISIS bring their violence to countries like the US, Canada, France, etc? Australia recently stopped a big plot by ISIS disciples. The bigger question is “will they?”

“If you fight it (Islamic State), it becomes stronger and tougher. If you leave it alone, it grows and expands. If Obama has promised you with defeating the Islamic State, then Bush has also lied before him,” Adnani said, according to the transcript.

That’s a point that must be acknowledged. If you think ignoring the Islamic State is fine for now, you give them time. As for the former, they might think they’re getting stronger, but they’ll be dying as they say it.
