I reported last week that an alarming number of Americans and Britons are joining the ranks of the Muslim terrorist group ISIS. It’s amazing just how many different ways that ISIS has been recruiting foreign nationals to their extremist cause.
Take the case of Sally Jones. She is a 42 year old mother of two who lived in Kent, England. She began corresponding online and developed a romantic relationship with Junaid Hussain, a computer hacker who now resides in Raqa, Syria. Through her romance with him, she was lured into converting to Islam. Today, she has taken on the names of Sakinah Hussain or Umm Hussain al-Britani and has moved to an ISIS stronghold in Syria.
Last week, Sally Jones reportedly tweeted:
“You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railing at raqqa… Come here I’ll do it for you!”
According to other posts on Jones’ Twitter page, she and her ‘husband,’ presumed to be Junaid, said that they had been stuck in Idlib, a city if northwestern Syria, before joining the caliphate. She used the Arabic word for caliphate – ‘khilafa’ in her post.
Jones is only one of a growing number of men and women that are forcing the British government to take their threats seriously. British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the security level in Great Britain has raised to severe and that they are taking tough anti-jihadist security measures to protect their border and people.
When it comes to the US, all we’ve heard from the White House is that Barack Obama has no plan of action. Supposedly, he’s been considering the threat of ISIS for a year, but has not been able to come up with any kind of plan of action. Obama has not raised America’s security level even though ISIS has been talking with Mexican drug cartels, mostly likely learning how to cross into the US without being detected.
The only actions we’ve seen from Obama were to order a few air strikes and play golf. The only thing he has accomplished is to drive ISIS forces into abandoning their use of military type vehicles and start using civilian cars. ISIS is starting to adopt the same practices that Hamas uses in hiding among the citizens in the area.
With the number of Americans that are familiar with our nation joining ISIS and knowing how to cross the border back into our own country, don’t be surprised to see them be like Sally Jones and start attacking Christians and beheading them here on American soil.
