An ISIS affiliated group is calling on their followers to follow the example of the Orlando Terrorist; calling him a hero, and asking their followers to continue attacking targets in America.
The statement, which was posted by the Al-Battar Media Foundation, encouraged other Islamic followers to target movie theaters, hospitals, airports, trains, amusement parks and restaurants.
Part of the statement read:
“While the tyrants shut the immigration door in your faces, open in their faces the door of jihad” … “While one of you wishes and strives to reach the Islamic State, one of us wishes to be in your place.”
More Attacks Could be Coming Very Soon
According to CBS News, the Orlando Terrorist posted a warning on Facebook moments before the attack that read: “In the next few days you will see attacks from the Islamic State [ISIS] in the USA.”
Since Islamic State leaders began calling on followers to stage attacks in their home countries, the FBI has seen a huge increase in the number of terrorist sympathizers here in the U.S.
FBI has over 1,000 ISIS cases open across U.S.
Last week, before the attacks in Orlando, James Comey, the Director of the FBI, admitted that the FBI had over 1,000 terror related cases open in all 50 states. During a news conference at the FBI’s field office in Brooklyn Center last week, Comey said terror recruitment is a problem across the country.
“The bureau has close to 1,000 open cases in all 50 states focused on people who are at some stage between consuming the poison from the group we call ISIL to acting on that poison, either by traveling or moving toward violence here in the United States.”
Stay Alert: Beware of your Surroundings
In the aftermath of Orlando, people need to be especially careful when attending large events or going anywhere where a large number of people gather in one place. These animals are looking for large body counts, and they are looking for easy targets.
- Be aware that Gun-Free Zones are always on the top of their list. These sickos are preying on the fact that our idiotic politicians try to limit where we can and can’t carry a firearm, they know that gun-free zones mean they will be able to get away with their sick acts without meeting resistance.
- If you are attending any large event or Rally, you are at Risk: High profile sporting events, political rallies, and social justice protests are all a cause for concern; terrorists and those looking to create chaos are increasingly looking at these types of events.
- Be aware of Large Events Happening near Your Home: Even those who avoid large events may not be able to avoid the dangers associated with them. Make sure you know what’s going on in your town, and be prepared for large-scale attacks that may force you to evacuate.
