Isis Fighter Just Released a Video Calling for Attacks on U.S. Soil and His Advice for American Militants Is Chilling

ISIS Militant Abu-Salih a-Amriki appeared in a new propaganda video on Wednesday, sponsored by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), telling Jihadis living in the United States to use the country's lenient gun laws to carry out mass shootings on American soil.


The supposedly bearded American Isis fighter, identified in the video as "Abu Salih al-Amriki," spoke in what sounded like a New York City-area accent and is shown to only have one leg. He wore military khaki fatigues and a prosthetic leg. He used crutches to walk through bombing ruins in the video.

“Take advantage of the fact that you can easily obtain a rifle or a pistol in America,” the fighter says. “Spray the kuffar [infidels] with bullets so that their fear of the Muslims rises and they continue to reveal their hatred towards Islam.”

VICE News shared the video on Twitter Thursday morning.

Abu-Salih called upon his fellow disabled fighters to take up arms against the United States: "Brothers with limbs or no limbs, I challenge you to a race towards gates of Jannah [paradise]."

He also directed his attention to President Donald Trump, calling him a "dog of Rome" and accusing him of entering "into the White House on the back of your crusader rhetoric, which the fake media has pressured you to tone down."

He continued to say in the video that Trump's war on Islam has made the United States more vulnerable to terror attacks, and this will help fuel support for ISIS globally.

"Your feelings and hatred towards Islam has already been revealed… you are now witnessing your fake victory. Your war against Islam has only made your homeland more vulnerable and your society is cracking into chaos."

The Department of Homeland Security said it was "aware" of threats to American nationals online. The FBI has yet to comment on the video.

Both Homeland Security and domestic law enforcement have long feared that terrorists could abuse the Second Amendment to easily acquire powerful assault rifles and handguns.

Last week, the outgoing director of the National Counterterrorism Center, Nicholas Rasmussen, warned that easy access to weapons due to unrestricted gun laws leaves the United States "dangerously" vulnerable to mass shootings by extremists.

"We find ourselves in a more dangerous situation because our population of violent extremists has no difficulty gaining access to weapons that are quite lethal," said Rasmussen, via The Washington Post. "I wish that weren't so."

Rasmussen criticized the Trump administration and its policies for creating a "mutual suspicion" with American Muslims living in the United States. Trump's rhetoric, also propagandistic, made counterterrorism efforts "more difficult" to be effective.

"If you're increasing the amount of suspicion and distress on these communities, it places more challenges in our way," Rasmussen told CNN.

The video is the latest in series produced and released by ISIS called "Inside the Caliphate."

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.

Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman was one of the first witnesses in the House of Representatives' initial impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Vindman testified before the House's select committee on impeachment late last year after hearing Trump's infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The administration of President Donald Trump relies on its white Evangelical base to keep its support consistently hovering around 40 percent.

In keeping with this, President Donald Trump often invokes anti-abortion values he claims to hold dear. He's falsely claimed that Democrats are determined to rip babies from their mothers' wombs and that parents often discuss with their doctors whether or not to keep the baby...after the baby is born.

These claims are patently false, but they rile up the base.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos seems to be playing right along in promoting abortion hysteria, if a recent speech is any indication.

After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.

Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
