In a new video that has emerged from ISIS, President Obama is directly threatened as follows:
“Know, oh Obama, that will reach America,” says one of the fighters, clad in black and wearing a balaclava, in a translation from Arabic provided by MEMRI. “Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House, and transform America into a Muslim Province.”
The video also pledges to kill Japanese and Jordanian hostages if a hostage is not freed by Jordan. And they didn’t stop with all of these threats.
ISIS also makes the following threats against Europe:
“And this is my message to France and to its sister, Belgium,” he said. “We advise you that we will come to you with car bombs and explosive charges, and will cut off your heads.”
There was an online message issued today warning that a Jordanian pilot and a Japanese hostage had less than “24 hours to live.” They demanded that a woman held by Jordan, Sajida al-Rishawi, be freed in exchange for the Jordanian and Japanese hostages. Ms. Al-Rishawi previously admitted a role in the Amman hotels attack that killed 57 people and who is referred to by the Islamic State as a “sister of the Caliphate.”
ISIS released this message of Japanese hostage, Kenji Goto Jogo:
"I've been told [by ISIS] that this is my last message," the Japanese hostage says, adding that the only obstacle remaining for his release is the Jordanian government and that "time is now running very short!"
No immediate response has been made by the White House.
