While there hasn’t been a Muslim terrorist attack in the United States for a while, the threat is ever-present.
ISIS has seen its influence extend far beyond the borders of Iraq and Syria, becoming the primary inspiration of terror attacks in recent years.
The fighting may not be as intense in Syria these days, but ISIS-inspired fighters are picking up their slack in places like the Philippines, North Africa, and even Europe.
With attacks occurring with increasing frequency in these areas, it’s only a matter of time before they try to strike the US, which is something a newly uncovered message indicates may happen soon.
As reported at the Conservative Tribune, an audio message supposedly from the spokesman of the Islamic State called on followers to launch attacks in the United States, Europe, Russia, Australia, Iraq, Syria, Iran, and the Philippines during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began in late May.
The audio clip was distributed on ISIS’ channel on Telegram, an encrypted messaging application. It was from the terrorist group’s official spokesman, Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer.
“O lions of Mosul, Raqqa, and Tal Afar, God bless those pure arms and bright faces, charge against the rejectionists and the apostates and fight them with the strength of one man,” said al-Muhajer.
Rejectionist is a derogatory term used to refer to Shi’ite Muslims, which are the majority populations in Iran and Iraq.
“To the brethren of faith and belief in Europe, America, Russia, Australia, and others. Your brothers in your land have done well so take them as role models and do as they have done.”
Every year, the number of terrorist attacks increase during Ramadan. That’s because radical clerics tell their followers that to kill infidels during the holy month will net you a greater reward in Heaven.
Unfortunately for the nations in the crosshairs, Ramadan doesn’t end until June 24, so there’s still time for these crazies to strike.
But then again, that’s still a constant threat regardless of the month, because the threat of radical Islam never sleeps.
All we can do is trust the authorities to be on guard and thwart attacks before they’re carried out.
