ISIS Threatens to Attack Washington D.C., European Countries (VIDEO)

Following a slew of coordinated shootouts and explosions in Paris on Friday, ISIS is threatening attacks on Washington and various European countries.

In a new video released on Monday, the terrorist organization threatens nations partaking in retaliatory air strikes against Syria. French fighter jets — in coordination with U.S. forces — launched raids in Syria on Sunday, targeting the Islamic State’s stronghold in Raqqa, which was bombed 20 times.

“We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington,” a man says according to a translation from Reuters.

The video has not yet been authenticated, but appeared on Islamic State-related social media accounts. The video is thought to be made by Wilayat Kirkuk, a group based in Salahuddin province, north of Baghdad.

“I say to the European countries that we are coming, coming with booby traps and explosives, coming with explosive belts and (gun) silencers and you will be unable to stop us because today we are much stronger than before,” another man dressed in fatigues and a turban says.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people and wounded 350 others on Friday.

    “Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his supplication, and for your own sake, Lord, let your face shine upon your desolated sanctuary. Incline your ear, O my God, and hear. Open your eyes and look at our desolation and the city that bears your name. We do not present our supplication before you on the ground of our righteousness, but on the ground of your great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, listen and act and do not delay! For your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people bear your name!” Daniel 9:17-19

    You know, F you ISIS. We’ve had enough of your crap and your so called ‘holy war’. If you believe that by committing acts of terrorism will buy your way into the afterlife, you have another thing coming. I personally think that what lies after this realm of existence won’t grant you what you think your ‘award’ is. You are cowards that want to bring people down to your level with fear and terror. Watch out we may nuclear bomb your asses back to the stone age because we don’t bow down to your types…
