An Internet poster claiming to represent the Islamic State issued an ominous warning Tuesday to both the United States and “Draw Muhammad” event organizer Pamela Geller.
The threat, made on the anonymous message board JustPasteIt, directly threatens Geller and claims the group has fighters spread out throughout the U.S ready to hit “any target we desire.”
It already claimed credit for Sunday’s terror attack on the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas, that left two terrorists dead at the hands of police officers.
The post said the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has “71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack,” specifically mentioning Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and California, according to the New York Daily News.
“Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday,” the posting stated.
“The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah (governance) in the heart of our enemy,” it read.
“Our aim was the khanzeer (pig) Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter.”
The post claimed the Islamic State knew its fighters would be killed in Sunday’s attack because of the tight security, but claimed it was a test for future operations.
“We knew that the target was protected,” they said. “Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.”
The post closed by saying, “The next six months will be interesting.
The authenticity of the post was not confirmed, but that didn’t stop Geller from responding with a posting of her own.
“This threat illustrates the savagery and barbarism of the Islamic State. They want me dead for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. What remains to be seen is whether the free world will finally wake up and stand for the freedom of speech, or instead kowtow to this evil and continue to denounce me,” she wrote.
“What’s really frightening and astonishing about this threat is that the media in denouncing me is essentially allying with and even cheering on the Islamic State. I expected this from jihadists. I never expected it from my fellow Americans in the mainstream media.”
