The Islamic Terrorist sect ISIS have released a video on Thursday threatening to blow up the White House with suicide bombings and car blasts and also vowing to conduct more strikes on France.
The six-minute video released by Islamic State fighters in Iraq follows last week’s Paris attacks, according to a translation of the Arabic provided by the Maryland-based SITE Intelligence Group.
The video opens with television news clips of the Paris attacks and then shows two militants separately speaking to the camera.
Titled “Paris Before Rome,” the video shows an Islamic State fighter threatening to “pound” French monuments and vowing to strike at the White House.
In the video, an unknown militant tells the camera:
“What do they expect from the nation of Islam, other than more of these strikes?
“We bring Hollande and the people around him the good tidings – as we bring Obama and the people around him the good tidings – of more of these strikes.Allah willing, we shall roast them with explosive belts and car bombs. We shall follow them wherever they may go, and Allah willing, we shall lead them like slaves, like dogs.”
In a second segment of the video, a different terrorist tells the camera:
“Oh Crusader France, Allah willing, we shall pulverize your palaces.Allah willing, you shall know no happiness, and will not live for long. “We started with you, and we shall finish with the false White House, which we shall render black with our fire, Allah willing.”We shall blow it up like we blew up the false idols in this good lands.
“Oh Crusaders everywhere, know that you are under threat, and that Allah has ordered us to fight you.”
Speaking on the incidence, FBI Director James Comey said on Thursday he was not aware of any credible threat of a “Paris-type attack” in the United States.
State Department spokesman John Kirby told CNN that Thursday’s video was being examined to determine its “veracity.” “Everybody here in the United States government are taking these threats seriously,” he said.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the video.
The latest threat comes one day after the militant group put out a video showing scenes of New York City, which suggested it was also a target.
Islamic State, which controls a large territory in Syria and Iraq, has claimed responsibility for last Friday’s attacks in Paris in which 129 people were killed.
