Allah says he will strike terror in the unbelievers (Qurâ€™an 3:151), and tells Muslims to do the same thing (Qurâ€™an 8:60). The Islamic State is obeying this call.
â€œChristmas Threat Against Times Square in New ISIS Santa Poster,â€ by Bridget Johnson,Â PJ Media, November 27, 2017:
An ISIS supporter released on the groupâ€™s social media haunts a poster of Santa Claus overlooking Times Square with a case of dynamite at his side.
In the image, the New York streets are filled with pedestrians at nighttime and Santa carries a bulky red sack.
â€œWe meet at Christmas in New Yorkâ€¦ soon,â€ reads the text on the image.
It follows propaganda posters making holiday threats toward Europe, with a hand holding a bloody knife before a market in the neighborhood of the Eiffel Tower and a black-clad jihadist standing over Santa on Londonâ€™s Regent Street.
The threat also comes as the ISIS-supporting Wafaâ€™ Media Foundation has released numerous threats against the holiday and against the Vatican. In a message to fellow jihadists last week, the group noted that â€œthe crusadersâ€™ feast is approaching.â€
In another instance, Wafaâ€™ circulated a poster depicting a vehicle moving toward the Vatican with a cache of weapons, vowing â€œChristmas blood.â€â€¦
