Paris and Brussels were just the beginning, ISIS threatened as it works to intimidate – and destroy – Western civilization.
The video, titled “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands,” calls to “kill [infidels] wherever you find them.”
“Nations of the cross, this message is for you. Know that your options are few: either you join Islam, or pay tribute, or face the war,” ISIS demands in the clip.
“If it was Paris yesterday, and today in Brussels, Allah knows where it will be tomorrow,” the English-speaking narrator threatens. “Maybe it will be in London or Berlin or Rome.”
The clip includes footage of the Eiffel Tower being destroyed, reportedly taken from a video game.
The March 22nd attacks in Brussels killed 35 people, and the Paris attacks last November killed 132 people.
ISIS has previously warned of attacks in Spain and the United Kingdom.
In the fourth edition of its Dabiq magazine issued at the end of 2014, ISIS threatened to target Rome and Jerusalem.
“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”
The group further vows that “the flag of the Caliphate will rise over Mecca and Medina, even if the apostates and hypocrites despise such. The flag of the Caliphate will rise over Baytul-Maqdis (Jerusalem) and Rome, even if the Jews and Crusaders despise such.”
In the meantime, Israel warned that hundreds of jihadists, Muslim terrorists, are “planning to strike Western targets on European soil.”
“We are concerned that what we saw in Paris and Brussels is just the start, and that attempts to carry out terror attacks in Europe will continue,” Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told his Polish counterpart Antoni Macierewicz in Tel Aviv last week.
