Islamic Terror Message to the World
The video threatens all countries that are judged to be conducting “crusader” campaigns, a reference to Christian military campaigns launched in the 10th through 12 centuries which are seen as justification to kill and destroy anyone and anything they judge to be obstructing their march towards world dominance. In the video a man dressed in fatigues and a turban identified as Al Ghareeb the Algerian and states the following:
“We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, 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.”
“Al Ghareeb the Algerian” also warned Europe in the video that more attacks were coming.
“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,” he said.
A poster was circulated advising law enforcement to “be on the lookout” for four men who were observed near the Pentagon in what was described as “suspicious activity.”
WTTG-TV reporter Emily Miller tweeted the leaked BOLO alert, writing, “This is scary.”
According to the alert, Metro Transit Police was requesting assistance in efforts “to identify the above pictured individuals in reference to suspicious activity that was observed at the Pentagon Metro Station.”
The “suspicious activity” was said to have occurred Sunday, but it wasn’t clear what the individuals were seen doing. The poster urged those with information about their identities to call a particular detective.

Police subsequently determined there was no connection to the four men and any criminal activity. However, it is clear that ISIS has most of the civilized world on high alert and frightened about activities happening in their own neighborhoods.
With every indication that ISIS is deadly and deadly serious, one wonders when the Obama administration will take the threat seriously and do more than just play defense against this barbaric force. It is past time to become proactive and cut off the head of the beast. Why Obama is unwilling to do that given the clear intent of ISIS to attack this country should be cause for serious speculation.
