ISIS released another threatening video this week, identifying the next cities on the terror group’s hit list. Topping the list are Washington, DC and London.
London is on the next list of target cities for twisted jihadis, it has been claimed. Images threatening attacks in London and other major world capitals have been posted on messaging app Telegram, according to analysts at SITE Intelligence Group.
One picture chillingly shows New York’s Statue of Liberty engulfed in flames but with the caption “Washington soon” – referring to the US capital 225 miles away. The threat comes as security at British churches is being ramped up amid a new terror alert after ISIS knifemen forced a French priest to kneel before slitting his throat on camera.
…The official international terrorism threat level in the UK is ‘severe’ – meaning an attack is seen as “highly likely”. Earlier this year it was revealed that authorities have disrupted seven plots in the UK in the previous 18 months.
It’s hard to say how credible the threats in the video really are. However, it’s even harder to feel safe when our President’s administration believes air conditioners are as dangerous a threat as radical Islam. We need to elect leadership in the White House who will treat Islamic extremism as a real and serious threat to national security.
