ISIS urged extremists to 'dress up like a Jew' and carry out lone-wolf attacks in the West

0

A recent ISIS propaganda video urged lone-wolf attackers in the West to "dress up like a Jew" and hide weapons under their coats while carrying out lone-wolf attacks.

Another message in a chat room included a list of Jewish communities in the United Kingdom. It also included a photo of Amedy Coulibaly, who killed four hostages at a kosher supermarket near Paris in 2015. The poster in the chat room urged other extremists to  "take the brother's example."

IF YOU'RE STILL IN THE WEST! Dress up like a Jew! Go to your nearest Jewish area! Make sure you have plenty of weapons under your coat!

Here's the full text of the post in an ISIS chat room called Lone Mujahid.

The posts come at a time when high-profile anti-Semitic incidents are on the rise in the U.S. Two Jewish cemeteries were vandalized in in February, and dozens of bomb threats have been phoned in to Jewish community centers since the start of 2017.

In this Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 photo, Nineveh police forces train with Spanish coalition members at Basmaya base 40 kilometers southeast of Baghdad, Iraq. The U.S.-led coalition is planning for the day Iraq will be free of the Islamic State group, ramping up the training of a future Mosul police force -- even as the battle for the city is temporarily on hold. The security forces are expected to move into villages of Ninevah province around Mosul and into parts of the city recently retaken from IS. The Iraqi military declared Mosul’s eastern half “fully liberated” in January and is now preparing to battle for the city’s western sector. (AP Photo/Karim Kadim)

Meanwhile, an offensive to retake Mosul from ISIS is still underway. Iraqi forces quickly recaptured the western half of the city, but the eastern half is much more difficult to secure.
