ISLAMIC States has vowed to destroy Berlin in a chilling threat on the German capital, one year after the deadly Christmas market attack
12 people were killed in the truck attack at the city's busy Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz, next to Berlin’s main shopping street last year.
Now ISIS propaganda has vowed “Berlin will burn”, as jihadis threaten to bring chaos and destruction to the city.
One image, posted to Twitter by ISIS propagandists, shows a heavily armed fighter stood in front of the famous Brandenburg Gate, with the words: “Berlin will burn”.
Another shows an ISIS fighter walking through a church towards Father Christmas and a Christmas tree, along with the words “soon on your holidays” and “soon very soon”.
ISIS has also vowed to attack New York over Christmas.
One ISIS propaganda shows a church in flames with the words: “Wait for us, we meet at Christmas in New York”.
The fear mongering jihadis have vowed to attack targets in both cities, including at Christmas markets in a chilling repeat of the evil Berlin attack.
Threats have been ramped up in recent weeks, increasing after the failed pipe bomb attack at a New York bus station on Monday.
Christmas markets in Germany have been given extra security following the Berlin attack last year.
This includes concrete barriers to prevent vehicles from slamming into stalls in a repeat of the Breitscheidplatz attack.
There are also armed police officers mingling with crowds at the popular attractions, which bring in swathes of tourists to the country every year.
The Muslim Brotherhood has declared war on the United States after President Trump announced earlier today the official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his intent to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
In the published statement on the Ikhwanonline.info website, the group rabidly defended by the CIA and State Department as moderates, declares, "Jerusalem is Islamic and Arab; for it we'll shed our blood and wage war. This is the way of our Jihad."
Here's a translation of the Muslim Brotherhood's statement:
Muslim Brotherhood: The transfer of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem classifies America as an enemy state and all its interest will be subject to the political position of the interests of the Zionist entity [statement]
In the name of Allah the Merciful......
'A dead terrorist can't cause harm to Britain'
- Gavin Williamson issued a direct threat to Britons still fighting for ISIS.
- He said “my view is a dead terrorist can’t cause any harm to Britain.”
- At least 800 people have left the UK to join ISIS in Iraq or Syria.
- Other terror experts have said they should instead be reintegrated.
Britain’s new Defence Secretary has unequivocally threatened to kill Britons who leave the country to fight for ISIS.
Gavin Williamson told the Daily Mail on Wednesday evening:
“I do not believe that any terrorist, whether they come from this country or any other, should ever be allowed back into this country. […]
“Quite simply my view is a dead terrorist can’t cause any harm to Britain.”
Williamson added that British fighters who flee the UK for other countries would be hunted down and prevented from returning home or finding havens in other countries.
He said: “Make sure there is no safe space for them, that they can’t go to other countries preaching their hate, preaching their cult of death.”
This could mean seizing their passports if they try to cross international borders, the Daily Mail said.
Williamson’s threat was harsher than that of his predecessor, Michael Fallon, who resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations last month.
In October, Fallon said British nationals who have chosen to fight for ISIS in Iraq or Syria have made themselves “a legitimate target” and “run the risk every hour of every day of being on the wrong end of an RAF or a United States missile,” according to The Telegraph.
Williamson’s Wednesday remarks echoed those of Rory Stewart, an international development minister, who said last month: “The only way of dealing with them [foreign fighters] will be, in almost every case, to kill them.”
Meanwhile, Max Hill QC, the UK’s official anti-terror watchdog, has said that teenagers who joined ISIS “out of a sense of naivety” should be reintegrated into British society so as to avoid “losing a generation.”
