ISIS taunts America: 'Bring it on'
(by Cheryl Chumley, WND) -- ISIS terrorists sent out a new threat against the United States via video, taunting America's military and mocking political leaders to "bring it on."
The English version of the video released in the lead-up to Thanksgiving is titled "No Respite," a name that comes directly from verse 71 of the Quran, Heavy reported.
That verse reads: "And recite to them the news of Noah, when he said to his people, 'O my people, if my residence and my reminding of the signs of Allah has become burdensome upon you, then I have relied upon Allah. So resolve upon your plan and [call upon] your associates. Then let not your plan be obscure to you. Then carry it out upon me and do not give me respite."
In the video, the terror group pokes fun of America's military maneuvers in the Mideast region and highlights racial tensions in the United States sparked by various police-community tensions. The video also spotlights the geographical areas ISIS has expanded into the last few weeks, and makes mention of its goals of bringing back the caliphate.
The video comes as President Obama vowed to bolster U.S. aid to France to fight the terror group.
"As Americans, we stand by our friends in good times and in bad," Obama said, just after a meeting with French President Francois Hollande, USA Today reported.
"The murderous ideology [of ISIS] poses a serious threat to all of us," Obama said. "It cannot be tolerated. It must be destroyed. And we must do it together."
Obama still opposes the use of U.S. ground troops in Syria and Iraq to fight ISIS.
