ISIS Sympathizers Threaten To Bomb Times Square After Islamic State Encourages “Lone Wolf” Attacks
Nothing may come of this, but as I’ve said time and again, we shouldn’t only be worried about Islamic terrorists overseas. We’ve got tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of like-minded Muslims much closer to home …
Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed
Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”
By Oliver Duggan, The Telegraph – “The Islamic State (Isil) has encouraged ‘lone wolf’ attacks by extremists equipped with homemade pipe bombs on Times Square and other high-profile US tourist destinations, according to reports.
A message posted on an Isil forum entitled ‘To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets’ surfaced in the last 24 hours.
In it, supporters of the extremist organisation are told to plant explosives in busy public locations in New York, Las Vegas and Texas, and at metro stations across the US.
It comes as Isil released a slickly-produced propaganda video in response to President Barack Obama’s pledge to ‘degrade and destroy’ the organisation.
The video includes shaky-footage of the White House that appears to have been filmed from a moving car, and include extracts of President Obama’s statement on the US response to Isil this week.

Flashback: Study: Hundreds Of Thousands Of Muslim Americans Believe Anyone Insulting Mohammed Should Be Killed – “If, for the sake of argument, we use a figure of 5 million Muslims in America and if, for the sake of argument, the poll below correctly reflects the percentage of Muslims who believe that anyone insulting their prophet should face the death penalty, then the following number we can extrapolate from this data is frightening: The United States is home to 625,000 of your ‘average-all-American’ Muslims who believe you should die for hurting their feelings. That’s more people than the number of military personnel on active duty in Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland and the UK combined …” Read more.
Flashback: New Study Shows That 80% of Mosques in America Teach Jihad Violence and Islamic Supremacism – “… Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. And now comes yet more confirmation that mosques in the U.S. are teaching these things, and again the percentage is remarkably similar: around 80% of mosques are found to be teaching jihad warfare and Islamic supremacism.” Read more.
