GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
ISIS threaten an attack on Britain so horrific it will 'turn children's hair white' as latest video shows white jihadi warning of further outrages in Europe and shooting captives
Terror group's newspaper warns UK will suffer 'lion's share' of attack
Meanwhile, a video warns of attacks which will make the West forget 9/11
But the French-speaking jihadi suggests Spain will be main target
Killer says this is because Muslim rule was overthrown there 500 years agoFrankly, this doesn't sound very well thought out.
Anyway, here's the video of the former ISIS Fighter talking about the Nuke:
Nico (who is a former Muslim from UAE, and a IBA contributor) comments:
Throughout the video I was thinking about the verse in the Quran:
"I shall cast terror in the hearts of the unbelievers."
Ex-Islamic State fighter? Sounds more like their messenger in Europe in the hopes that this message will be run on news channels (since he apparently is emailing it to news outlets) for all the infidels to run scared about. And at the same time sounds like a recruitment video with:
"You shouldn't underestimate IS anymore because they're not a group anymore but a huge army with incredibly large resources, a lot of money and many militaristic weapons..."
The second half which was the one that solidifies what I'm thinking even more is the one on this Shabh guy. What a perfect way for this asshole to spread the message of the Caliph to Muslims in the West, "We know this Shabh guy is a traitor, if you see him, seize him and you will be given 2 million dollars by the Caliph himself. He's important, has a lot of information and we can easily torture him (we are good at it too!) and get all that information."
The amount of time this guy spent on Shabh was incredible and seemingly not related to the rest of the charade of him "warning the West and avoiding the coming war".
The whole video (or letter) sounds like it is a "get ready, 2016 is the year we'll attack and we have nukes!" call.
More like a rallying a troops kind of letter.
He did not seem to suggest the nukes are in Europe already but rather that have destinations, also sounds like, going with the theory of him being an IS messenger, he's trying to get recruits to get those weapons to the destinations they want them to go. Or if they don't have nukes already, then trying to get someone who can get those weapons to listen and get them interested because "hey, we plan on attacking these major powers".
All in all I think it is a message for IS members to listen and also to scare the infidels.
