Washington: ISIS terrorists have threatened to destroy the White House in a newly released video just a day after another video threatened a suicide bombing in New York in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.
Speaking in the footage, a Jihadi with a long beard and dressed in a headdress and robe worn by many ISIS fighters, warns: ‘We started with [Paris] and we shall finish with the false White House.”We shall render [the White House] black with our fire, Allah willing.’
It also bears the black flag symbol of the Al Hayat Media Center, the propaganda arm of ISIS that produces its infamous execution and recruitment videos.
It begins with another terrorist speaking in the middle of the street, making threats against France and the U.S. after both countries escalated bombing campaigns against ISIS in the wake of Paris.
Addressing the camera while using his index finger to point at the sky, indicating a reverence to Allah, the man says: ‘What do they expect from the nation of Islam other than more of these strikes?
‘We will bring [French President Francois] Hollande and the people around him the good tidings, as we bring Obama and the people around him the good tidings, of more of these strikes.’
He then goes on to say: ‘Allah willing, we shall roast them with [explosive] belts and car bombs.
‘We shall follow them wherever they may go and Allah willing we shall lead them like slaves, like dogs. Allah willing we shall lead them like slaves, like dogs.’
The footage then cuts to black, before text appears in the tricolor of the French national flag, which reads ‘Paris before Rome’, as burning cinders float up the screen.
While it is not explicitly stated what this statement is referring to, it is likely meant as a threat against the Italian capital, which has been on high alert ever since 129 people were killed in Paris.
Italian authorities upped security in major cities and around cultural sites yesterday after the FBI warned of possible terrorist attacks there.
The footage then cuts to a second bearded jihadi, again wearing a headdress and robe, though this time he appears to be speaking outside, either in a garden or courtyard.
He says: ‘Oh crusader France, we shall pulverize your palaces, Allah willing you shall not know happiness and will not live for long.
‘We started with you and we shall finish with the false White House which we shall render black with our fire, Allah willing. We shall blow it up like we blew up the false idols in this good land.
‘Oh crusaders everywhere, know that you are under threat and that Allah had ordered us to fight you.’
