Islamic State has released yet another video message. In this one, it threatens to blow up the White House – the second time this week ISIS has vowed to attack Washington. The terrorists had already posted a video threatening to blow up New York.
In a one-minute video titled Paris before Rome, a bearded man in a turban menaces the US with threats of suicide attacks and car bombings. Speaking in Arabic on behalf of fellow jihadists, he warns that other states will face attacks similar to the ones carried out in Paris should they follow the example of French President Francois Hollande and US President Barack Obama.
As the video continues, another Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) member says that they started with Paris but are going to finish with the White House, which they will render black with fire. The jihadists threaten to blow up the presidential residence, equating it with false idols.
