New ISIS Video Threatens to ‘Strike America at its Center in Washington’

ISIS-compressed (1)A new video released by the barbaric Islamic group ISIS, which identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is threatening to “strike America at its center in Washington” after taking credit for the French massacre that killed over 130 last week.

The video begins with news footage of Friday’s attack in Paris, and addresses what it calls the “crusader campaign” against the terrorist organization.

“We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by Allah, you will have a day, Allah willing, like France’s and by Allah, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington,” states a jihadist only identified as “Al Ghareeb the Algerian.”

He also threatens continued attacks in Europe.

“I say to the European countries that we are coming, coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and [gun] silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before,” Ghareeb asserts.

As previously reported, French fighter jets dropped 20 bombs on key ISIS targets in Raqqa, Syria on Sunday in retribution for the deadly massacre in Paris. The airstrike, carried out in conjunction with the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, struck an ISIS command center, a jihadist training center and an ammunition depot.

The U.S. Department of Defense said that the Iraqi government also helped with the coordination of the strike.

“The destruction of ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq further limits the terrorist group’s ability to project terror and conduct operations,” it said in a statement.

French President Francois Hollande had characterized ISIS’ attack on Parisians as an “act of war” and vowed to respond in a “merciless” manner.

“It is an act of war that was committed by a terrorist army, a jihadist army, Daesh, against France,” he said on Saturday, using the derogatory reference to ISIS. “It is an act of war that was prepared, organized and planned from abroad, with complicity from the inside, which the investigation will help establish.”

“We will work alongside our allies to fight this terrorist menace,” Hollande continued. “”France, because it was foully, disgracefully and violently attacked, will be unforgiving with the barbarians from [ISIS].”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security told reporters on Monday that there is no information indicating a specific threat to America, but the Metro Transit Police Department has announced that it is stepping up security in the Washington area nonetheless.

“[L]et me be clear—there is no known, credible threat to Washington D.C. at this time. However, we must always remember that Washington will always be an attractive target to those wishing to do harm to us,” wrote Police Chief Cathy Lanier in an email on Saturday.

    The Muslims are coming…..The Muslims are coming…..And God is sending them. And why would that be?
    We as a nation are lawbreakers. We have rejected the True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We have rejected Jesus Christ, as “the way, the truth and the life”. And as we have become a pluralistic, idolatrous nation, the Lord is filling the vacuum with these sons of Esau. The Lord is turning us over in His chastisement, to those who hate us. ( See Deut. 28)
    The rod of correction is upon us; but very few understand.

    “I say to the European countries that we are coming, coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and [gun] silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before,” Ghareeb asserts.

    They’re confusing deceitfulness and underhandedness with strength, those cowardly swines.

    We have a clear picture of many of these cowardly swines and their locations…kill them.

    We bring these so-called “refugees” into the country and then pay them to live. This means they can sit at home and reproduce like rabbits, and we will fund that. So guess what they’ll do? Exactly that; producing three, four, five, six or more kids.

    It is our social welfare policy that makes this sort of invasion possible and it is foisted on the people in the name of “compassion”; this looks exactly nothing like the sort of positive and functional immigration that this nation was built through.

    Your ancestors probably came through Ellis Island but none of them had access to any sort of “social safety net” that paid them to produce children and funded their every life need and want. We did that over the last fifty years and what we got for it is an explosion of Mexicans living off everyone else and now a bunch of so-called “refugees” that are nearly all fighting-age men.

    Our policy on immigration is literally suicidal; no nation can take in people who have no intention of becoming one with that nation but instead come with the intention of exploiting their welfare systems and overrunning the country and its government.

    That’s what’s going on here folks — these people are not stupid, but those in Washington and liberals are.

      They also make demands that our handouts aren’t not up to par, does that really sound like someone in need of refuge? A true refugee would be grateful for any kind act given to them and their families. And they produce child after child while America murders it’s own in the womb. I also read that Obama isn’t resettling any of these so called “refugees” in Washington D.C., I’d like to know why not.

        Questions BEING ASKED
        1.) Why would Syrian refugees make the dangerous and extremely long journey to European nations and U.S. (who hold damnable doctrine and life-styles according to the Quran) rather than the Arab nations (who are Islamic oriented) around them?

        2.) Why has it taken 5 full years (length of civil war in certain parts of Syria) for Syrians in the particular regions to leave?

        3.) Why are refugees tossing out good water and food given to them by western governments on their arrival?

        4.) Why are the vast majority of the refugees young men?

        5.) Why are the 5 wealthiest Gulf Nations refusing to take even one refugee? What do they know that we don’t?

        6.) Could it be this refugee crisis is not really a crisis at all but a Trojan Horse?

        7.) Could it be that we could be looking at the most massive Infiltration of Muslims and the religion of Islam the West has EVER seen in History

        8.) Could it be this “refugee crisis” is a planned takeover of Islamic Teachings?

        • Josey

          I think it is a Trojan horse that those in power and who abuse power want to use, that’s why they are letting it in, it’s not because they have no clue, they know and they cause order out of chaos to control people. The world is set up right now for the man of sin to come save their day which we as Christians know how that will turn out. God will give them their false saviour to their own detriment because they have rejected His Lordship.

    Will you please explain this strategy, Mr. Muslim-in Chief?

    #1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”

    #2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

    #3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

    #4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

    #5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

    #6 “Islam has always been part of America”

    #7 “We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

    #8 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

    #10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

    #11 “my muslim faith”

    Such are the consequences of electing and re-electing a taqiyya muslim and allowing him to rule as a despot. He should have been impeached and removed from office six years ago. He wasn’t, but instead has been enabled at every turn by a cowardly Congress. And it is going to get worse, much, much worse.

    • Josey

      Adding his statement that America is no longer a Christian nation which by the way is ironic of him to say such a thing since his followers continually claim that America was never founded on the principles of Christianity or founded under God when the very president they worship and elected acknowledges it once was a Christian nation or he would have had no need to state it is no longer one.
