ISIS Makes List of American Churches to Attack

Not content to let Americans ring in the new year peacefully, ISIS has devised a hideous plan to murder civilians in the United States. Even as the group reels from a multipronged assault on its territory, the extremist outfit has found the time and effort to formulate a plan to attack American targets, publishing a list of church names and addresses across the US for their members to attack and sharing it on social media:

“The series of messages appeared in a pro-ISIS group on Telegram, which also provides manuals for the use and preparations of weapons and explosives for aspiring assailants. The information, distributed in a number of posts, was all previously available online and includes a public directory of churches across all 50 states. (Vocativ does not publish specific information found in lists like these.)

In another group post, a member summoned “the sons of Islam” to target “churches, well-known hotels, crowded coffee shops, streets, markets and public places,” and shared a list of addresses in the United States, as well as in Canada, France and the Netherlands.

ISIS claimed responsibility for this week’s Christmas market attack in Berlin that killed 12 and injured 48. The group said that the assailant was a “soldier of the Islamic State,” who followed organizational orders “to target coalition countries.”
