ISIS calls for its members to carry out Jihad in Russia



On Sunday night (July 31) ISIS released a nine minute video calling for its members to attack Russia. Obviously this is not the greatest idea on ISIS's behalf, as Russia, historically under Vladimir Putin, does not take its threats in a joking manner.

During the video, an ISIS militant, masked while driving a car, says

"Listen Putin, we will come to Russia and will kill you at your homes ... Oh Brothers, carry out jihad and kill and fight them,"

ISIS has not yet claimed the video, but the source of the footage has been tracked to a Telegram messaging account which has been used by the militant group in the past. The source comes from one of their online propaganda outlets.

The motive is unclear, however the U.S. and Russia are trying to increase intelligence cooperation in Syria on ISIS and on al-Qaeda.

We speculate that the threat is due to recent Russian intervention in Syria against ISIS.

Will the US and Russia ultimately fight together to neutralize the ISIS threat? We hope so.

"There has been a string of deadly attacks claimed by Islamic state in Europe over the past weeks. Last week, assailants loyal to Islamic State forced an elderly Catholic priest in France to his knees before slitting his throat. Since the mass killing in Nice, southern France on July 14, there have been four incidents in Germany, including the most recent suicide bombing at a concert in Ansbach."

  1. ISIS will have underestimated Putin if they make the mistake of committing even one act of barbaric savagery on Russian soil; which already refuses to allow followers of Islam into their country. Unlike the "lead from behind" and "show them love" policies of the Obama administration, Putin will have no qualms about utilizing methods to completely wipe them out of existence; something the United States should have done long ago.

    1. Russia will not stand for these people. Maybe in our country under Obama, but with Trump and Putin terrorism has no grounds to work with. Putin will carpet bomb them and I completely respect the man. It is funny how media calls Russia the bad guys, when Russia is having to do all the "leaking" and they are the ones finding all the corruption in our country. I find Russian and American diplomacy to be great under Trump, but World War 3 against Russia if Hillary wins-- we will attack the only nation, Russia, who is willing to hunt terrorists
