How many threats does ISIS have to make – how many videos do they have to release – before we start to take them seriously? How many Americans will die before our country actually steps up and does something about this terror?
In the aftermath of the Orlando shooting, ISIS issued a video promising forthcoming attacks in Orlando, New York, and Washington, DC. From the Conservative Tribune,
“The infidels of crusade America will no longer have security or comfort,” the narrator of the threat video intoned. “New York, Orlando, Washington and other cities will not feel safety and comfort.”
The video went on to say that as long as America kept on attacking the forces of the caliphate in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, where they are trying to enforce their savage 7th-century version of Islam, we will continue to be attacked by the group. Victory was “forthcoming,” they added.
A new terror threat bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security underlined this.
“In this environment, we are particularly concerned about homegrown violent extremists who could strike with little or no notice,” the DHS bulletin read. “The tragic events of Orlando several days ago reinforce this.”
“DHS is especially concerned that terrorist-inspired individuals and homegrown violent extremists may be encouraged or inspired to target public events or places,” the statement said, noting that extremists “consider a diverse and wide selection of targets for attacks.”
DHS is concerned that extremists might target public events? Ya think?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a President who isn’t afraid to call terror what it is? Granted, that’s only step 1. But at least it would be a step in the right direction.
