Yesterday, a young Muslim refugee from Somalia attacked people with a knife and his car. The case will undoubtedly be under investigation for a while. But it’s important to remember that ISIS told its followers to do exactly what this man did. Just two months ago!
The Daily Mail reported in September:
‘We will exterminate you’: ISIS fanatics threaten lone wolf attacks on the West after their terror mastermind is killed in air strike
ISIS fanatics have threatened to carry out new lone wolf attacks on the West after their propaganda chief was killed in an air strike.
The terror group’s top strategist Abu Mohamed al-Adnani, who had a $5million bounty on his head, was targeted in a coalition bomb strike in Aleppo, Syria earlier this week.
But since his death on Tuesday, seen as a major blow to ISIS, there have been calls for revenge attacks carried out by lone-wolf jihadist operatives.
According to the respected Site Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist activity, the threats were made on a pro-ISIS account on the encrypted Telegram messaging service, with one warning: ‘We will exterminate you’.
He was known to have called for lone-wolf killings on the West. Adnani once told followers: ‘If you cannot (detonate) a bomb or (fire) a bullet, arrange to meet alone with a French or an American infidel and bash his skull in with a rock, slaughter him with a knife, run him over with your car, throw him off a cliff, strangle him, or inject him with poison.’
As Americans, we have to be more vigilant than ever when it comes to watching out for strange behavior.
