ISIS claims responsibility for first attack by group on US soil: ‘Future attacks will be harsher’

The Islamic State has officially claimed responsibility for the attack on the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas, and issued an ominous warning to America.

The group made the claim on it’s Al Bayan radio station based in Raqqa, Syria, the unofficial capital of the Islamic State, Fox News reported.

Its significant because, if true, it would mark the first attack by the terror group on U.S soil.

The radio address hailed the two slain terrorists, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, as “two soldiers of the caliphate” and said the art contest organized by anti-Islamist activist Pamela Geller, was “portraying negative images of the Prophet Muhammad.”

“We tell America that what is coming is more bitter and harder and you will see from the soldiers of the caliphate what harms you,” the broadcast threatened.

“We say to the defenders of the cross, the U.S., that future attacks are going to be harsher and worse. The Islamic State soldiers will inflict harm on you with the grace of God. The future is just around the corner,” they said to end the address.

U.S. officials have not confirmed whether they think this was an official Islamic State attack or if the terror group was merely taking responsibility for a lone-wolf attack.
