ISIS Threatens Obama After Weekend Raid

By    |   Sunday, 17 May 2015 05:36 PM

The Islamic State group (ISIS) has threatened to kill President Barack Obama after a weekend by the U.S. military left the ISIS second-in-command dead, Independent Journal Review reports.

Following the killing of Abu Sayyaf in Syria, a tweet, posted in Arabic by an ISIS follower threatened death for Obama and "worshipers of the cross."

Translated into the English, the tweet reads: "If your goal is killing Abu Sayyaf then our goal is killing Obama and the worshipers of the cross. We have attacks coming against you." The militant also posted a photoshopped picture of a beheaded Obama.

IJReview noted that while the group is highly unlikely to succeed in killing the president, the threats should be taken seriously because ISIS has the ability to hit other high-level U.S. officials. The article cites the killing of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

This is not the first threat against Obama. ISIS has previously vowed to raise its flag over the White House, and in January said it would behead Obama and turn the United States into a Muslim country. In April, a cartoon depicted the beheading of the president.
