The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), wants to wish Americans and Europeans a blessed Ramadan, which began this month, by calling on all radical Islamist to commit terrorist acts. ISIS is encouraging its supporters to launch lone wolf attacks like the one that took place in Orlando Florida on Saturday, “to win the great award of martyrdom.”
The message they sent to their supporters is simple, kill the non-believers.
“Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad. Get prepared, be ready … to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers … especially for the fighters and supporters of the Caliphate in Europe and America,” said the audio message, urging ISIS sympathizers in the West to attack if they cannot travel to the group’s self-declared Caliphate in Syria and Iraq, Reuters reports.
“The smallest action you do in their heartland is better and more enduring to us than what you would if you were with us. If one of you hoped to reach the Islamic State, we wish we were in your place to punish the Crusaders day and night,” the message reportedly added.

Breitbart reported that the authenticity of the 31-minute message, purporting to come from Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, an ISIS spokesman, and posted on Twitter over the weekend by alleged supporters and opponents of the group alike, could not be verified, notes Reuters.
According to the International Business Times (IBTimes), the message was officially released on May 21 by al-Furqan, identified as the jihadist group’s media arm.
The Director of National Intelligence James Clapper estimated in February that nearly 36,500 foreign fighters seeking to engage in jihad have already traveled from more than 100 countries to Iraq and Syria, including approximately 6,600 from Western nations.
Today, ISIS is celebrating the act of one of it’s ‘lone wolf’ Islamic extremists, Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, who murdered 50 people at a “Pulse” gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Saturday night.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility on Sunday for the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, but U.S. officials said they had seen no immediate evidence linking the militant group to the massacre in Orlando, Florida, Reuters reported.
Islamic State’s claim was carried by Amaq, the organization’s news agency.
“The armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando in American state of Florida which left over 100 people dead or injured was carried out by an Islamic State fighter,” said the Amaq statement.
President Obama took the opportunity to push his gun control agenda by saying how easy it is to acquire a ‘powerful assault rifle’ (3:30 mark of the video shown bellow), the only thing missing were his fake tears.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish President Barack Hussein Obama and his family a blessed Ramadan.
