Just as Obama ditches a list of Muslims used after 9/11, we get the news that ISIS has put out a list of churches to attack:
The Islamic State published the names and addresses of thousands of churches in the United States and called on its adherents to attack them during the holiday season, according to a message posted late-night Wednesday in the group’s “Secrets of Jihadis” social media group.
A user going by the name of “Abu Marya al-Iraqi” posted an Arabic-language message calling “for bloody celebrations in the Christian New Year” and announced the group’s plans to utilize its network of lone wolf attackers to “turn the Christian New Year into a bloody horror movie.”
The series of messages appeared in a pro-ISIS group on Telegram, which also provides manuals for the use and preparations of weapons and explosives for aspiring assailants. The information, distributed in a number of posts, was all previously available online and includes a public directory of churches across all 50 states.
With the terror attack at a German Church Christmas market last week, this is especially concerning. The markets have become a target with many warnings prior to the attack by a lone man in a truck last week.
This is the new normal all over the West and will continue until more aggressive measures are taken to stop the spread of ISIS.
