The Nashir News Agency, one of several pro-ISIS media outlets, has issued a warning to Muslims in America, Britain, Russia, and throughout the West to avoid certain areas that are likely to be targeted by Islamic extremists in the coming weeks. The message, intended for those Muslims who aren’t fortunate enough to join the Islamic State in their failing caliphate, warned followers that they should stay away from “gathering places of the Crusaders” because “thousands of lonely lions” are plotting to slaughter innocent people in some of the West’s most populated cities.
“We will explode, run over people by vehicles and cut off their necks in any time,” said the message.
In an accompanying message to the “Crusaders,” the ISIS outlet warns those Westerners who would dare to oppose their Islamic supremacy that they will be killed by the losers who consider themselves loyalists to the murderous cause. A cause, they claim, that was incited by American aggression against Islam.
“You have started the aggression against us … and you will pay costly for that,” they write. “The Islamic State haven’t started the war against you, as your governments and media imagine. We have prepared for you worst days, surprises after surprises, and to answer the call of targeting the crusader’s countries thousands of lonely lions have been prepared in your countries and have sold their bodies and souls for the sake of Allah. And wait for attacks, and we wait too!”
Hopefully, at least in the U.S., we’re reaching the point where we’re done simply “waiting” for the attacks to unfold. Under President Trump, ISIS has been decimated in Iraq and there are reports that the Pentagon is getting ready to step up the war against Islamic State forces in Afghanistan, where they are gaining a foothold.
Of course, it would be much easier to defend ourselves from attacks on our homeland if the liberal courts were not constantly thwarting President Trumps authority to do so. We will see in the coming days if the Supreme Court can lend some sanity back to these issues and overturn the earlier rulings against Trump’s wise travel ban.
But even if they do, it won’t solve the problem of these “lonely lions” spoken about by the ISIS news agency. These are homegrown Muslims who have been radicalized by ISIS propaganda online. To confront this threat, the Trump administration needs to crack down on American mosques that turn a blind eye to extremists among them…when they aren’t harboring them with the worst of intentions. It will require violating the sacred rules of political correctness. It will take nothing less than true resolve in the face of liberal tears.
But if Trump is as clear-headed on the problem as we believe he is, that shouldn’t be a problem. We can’t stop every lunatic who pledges allegiance to ISIS, but we can certainly start taking the issue seriously. That alone will make a difference. That alone will save lives.
