Leave it to ISIS to not let a major tragedy go to waste. After the devastation Texas faced at the hands of Hurricane Harvey and the potential catastrophic damage that could be done by Hurricane Irma, ISIS has a new sick plan.
ISIS may have taken a back seat to the ongoing natural disasters occurring in our country over the past couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there lurking in the background trying to come up with a plan to take more lives of Americans. Everyone knows that hurricanes have been a major focus of everyone as of late and for good reason, and ISIS has decided to use the situation to their advantage.
The terrorist group is now calling on the “lone wolf” to carry out a new twisted attack on Americans while they are already down on their luck. They plan to target hurricane relief centers in and around Houston, Texas. These are the locations where many displaced Americans reside until greater accommodations can be made. That means these people are completely dependent on the government for food, clothing, and shelter, and ISIS thinks it’s their perfect opportunity to strike. Their message is simple– do whatever is possible to cause more pain and misery going as far as to kill the “unbelievers” through poisoning of the food and water supply or straight up cold blooded murder.
ISIS has recently been calling for attacks all over the world, but their eyes are set on American who are already facing massive destruction. They had better not forget that it’s not a good idea to mess with a bunch of pissed-off Americans.
According to Breitbart:
A pro-Islamic State (ISIS) Telegram channel has urged lone-wolf jihadists in the United States to target relief centers in Houston, Texas, housing people displaced by Hurricane Harvey, according to a report from SITE Intelligence Group.
“To all the LM’s (lone warriors) in the U.S., pop down to Houston and drop in at any of the relief centers housing displaced people from the Houston floods, make sure to bring lots of supplies/gadgets/toys to see if you can help put any kuffs (disbelievers) out of their misery,” the message reads, followed by a series of emojis depicting explosions, knives, bombs, guns and medical symbols.
The hurricane, which primarily affected Texas—as well as parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky—has forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes and take shelter in relief centers. It is estimated to have caused $180 billion in damage and claimed the lives of at least 60 people.
In the past few days, Islamic State channels have also posted calls for attacks on Europe, Russia, and the United States, on the occasion of the Islamic “Sacrifice Feast” Eid al Adha. Meanwhile, another message urges supporters to use chemical weapons by injecting cyanide into products in Western supermarkets.
It is not the first time that the group called for attacks against American civilians. In November 2016, the group called for the “slaughter” of civilians taking part in the presidential election and urged supporters to “make this year’s US presidential election a dreadful calamity like no other to have struck America throughout its pathetic history.”
Fortunately, no terrorist incidents were reported.
The group has also repeatedly urged followers to conduct “lone wolf” attacks, by targeting busy areas with vehicles or conducting cyber attacks through hacking.
It is also not the first time that ISIS has sanctioned the use of chemical weapons. In May, a report from the Times of London found that the organization had conducted chemical weapons experiments on live human beings.
Meanwhile, in March, the organization also used a “blistering chemical agent” against women and children in an attempt to slow the liberation of its regional capital by the U.S. led coalition.
ISIS is no stranger to attacking innocent people while they are already down. It is a strategy used by evil people. If any lone wolf does attack, they better hope they are not caught in the process because there will be no mercy for them in Texas and surrounding states. Everyone is already pissed off with what has happened, and they will have no time for terrorist attacks. The best we can do is get this message out there, so we can make sure people are prepared.
