ISIS: We Will Raise Flag of Allah in White House
By Drew MacKenzie
The Islamic State has warned the United States that it plans to attack America and raise “the flag of Allah in the White House.”
“I say to America that the Islamic caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group, also known as ISIS, told Vice Media in a video interview posted online Thursday.
“Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”
The nine-minute video is the first of a five-part series from Vice Media after reporter Medyan Dairieh spent three weeks embedded with ISIS fighters, gaining unprecedented access to the terror group.
In the first video, Dairieh heads to the Syrian city of Raqqa, where the brutal extremists are building a regime while also laying siege to a Syrian army base.
The ISIS threat to conquer the United States was issued before President Barack Obama announced Thursday that he planned to authorize “targeted” airstrikes against the hard-line Sunni jihadists to prevent the genocide of ethnic minorities in Iraq, including tens of thousands of fleeing Christians, as well as to protect U.S personnel in Irbil and Baghdad.
The Islamic State has captured vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria as it attempts to create a caliphate in the region. with its shadowy leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the caliph.
