Terror Threats Mounting
ISIS Calls For Attacks in the U.S. and Europe
April 18, 2015
 
What You Need To Know

Late last week the Islamic State released a new propaganda video (GRAPHIC) entitled 'We Will Burn America" within which threats of another 9/11 style attack are made, and which calls on supporters here in the U.S. homeland to carry out their own attacks.

"America thinks it's safe because of the geographical location. Thus you see it invades the Muslim lands, and it thinks that the army of the Jihad won't reach in their lands. But the dream of the American to have safety became a mirage. Today there is no safety for any American on the globe." The mujahedeen before although they had less resources, attacked New York and bombed the Twin Towers in the September Eleven attacks. America is now losing billions still to make sure their country is safe. But today, it's time for payback."

AlertsUSA again cautions readers that in the days and weeks following previous Islamic State videos calling for faithful Muslims in the West to carry out attacks, such attacks have in fact taken place. The first such call was last September when ISIS released a video within which their spokesman, Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, called for attacks on both soldiers and civilians in Australia, France, Canada and the US. Since that and subsequent videos, the world has seen attacks on soldiers, civilians and government buildings in Canada (see this and this), a hostage siege in a coffee shop in Australia, multiple attacks by Muslims on police here in the U.S. (see this and this) and multiple attacks in and around Paris, France.

So as to reaffirm that these calls for individuals to conduct attacks are still ongoing, this past Friday the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Topeka, Kansas, arrested one John T. Booker Jr., also known as Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, as he prepared a car bomb for use against the nearby Fort Riley Army post. The FBI states Booker has admitted to attempting to enlist in the U.S. Army so as to be able to carry out an attack similar to the 2009 Fort Hood shooting carried out by U.S. Army Major Nidal Hassan which killed 13 and injured an additional 30. He also has confessed that this effort was intended to directly support the efforts of the Islamic State.

66th Known Plot Since 9/11

According to the Heritage Foundation, Booker's plot is the 66th known Islamist terrorist plot or attack aimed at the U.S. homeland since 9/11. It is also the third terrorist plot that has been foiled in the past three weeks.

The U.S. Department of Defense continues to warn soldiers in the U.S. and abroad to lower their military profile while in public as well as to observe operational security standards in their use of social media.

As AlertsUSA has warned on more than a dozen occasions over the past year, (see this, this and this) there would come a point in time when U.S. and European Muslims who traveled to Iraq and Syria to train with and fight for the Islamic State would begin returning home, many with the intention of carrying out terror operations.

This week a federal grand jury indicted a 23-year-old Ohio man with three counts of terrorism charges after he allegedly traveled to Syria, trained with al-Nusra Front, al Qaeda's Syrian branch, and then returned home with the intention of launching a terrorist attack.

The Justice Department charges that the man traveled in April 2014 to Syria, where he allegedly received weapons, explosives and hand-to-hand combat training. He is reported to have then returned to the U.S. with orders to carry about terror attacks against military and law enforcement targets.

What Does This Mean to You?

“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”

- Winston S. Churchill

While pressures of political correctness demand our elected officials declare that western nations are not at war with Islam, it is important to realize that Islam is, FOR SURE, at war with western nations. The teachings and legacy of the Prophet Muhammad are absolutely clear: Wage war on other religions and bring them under submission to Islam. It is also important to keep in mind that moderate Islam is not what most Muslims believe. It’s what most liberals believe that Muslims believe. There is no moderate Islam taught in mosques or in Mecca.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international terrorism threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens, as events warrant.
