ISIS Supporters Encourage Lone-Wolf Attacks on Hurricane Harvey Relief Sites

When Hurricane Harvey tore through Texas, damaging 100,000 homes and displacing over 30,000 people, Americans came together in a beautiful show of strength and unity.

Relief efforts poured in from across the country to help affected Texans, donating supplies and erecting emergency shelters. Even President Trump got on board, personally flying out to the disaster area to help out and donating $1 million of his own money to assist hurricane victims.

Of course, it's always when America is at its strongest that our enemies desire the most to hurt us.

The latest effort to destabilize and harm innocent Americans comes from ISIS supporters on the internet calling for lone-wolf style attacks. The messages, posted anonymously by jihadi cowards, encourage the slaughter of non-Muslims.

From Newsweek:

As Texas comes to terms with the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey, supporters of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) are calling on American jihadis to target relief centers for those displaced.

“To all the LM’s (lone mujahids) in the U.S.,” the message posted on Monday begins, using the term for “warrior” in Arabic, “pop down to Houston and drop in at any of the relief centers housing displaced people from the Houston floods, make sure to bring lots of supplies/gadgets/toys to see if you can help put any kuffs out of their misery,” continues the message, which was provided to Newsweek by radical-Islamist monitoring site Jihadoscope.

The term kuffs refers to the Arabic word “kuffar” or disbeliever. The message ends with emoji icons of an explosion, knife, bomb, gun and medical symbols, such as a pill and an injection.

The call for attacks on those left homeless or injured by the natural disaster came from a channel called ‘Lone Mujahid’ on the encrypted app Telegram, a platform popular with jihadists for its privacy and lack of takedowns compared to more public social media platforms such as Twitter.

No method is too extreme nor too cowardly for these terroristic heathens. ISIS extremists have also expanded their repertoire of attack methodologies to poisoning, specifically at Western grocery stores.

From Yahoo News:

The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) and its followers have traditionally used shock and awe tactics in their attacks on the West, taking knives, assault rifles and trucks on as weapons in shocking assaults. But the group’s followers are now calling for a hidden weapon: poison. The target? Western grocery stores.

“In the third part of an English-language series promoting lone-wolf jihad in Western countries, potential attackers are advised to inject food for sale in markets with cyanide poison,” U.S.-based jihadi monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported.

A graphic posted by the ISIS supporters in the Furat Wilayah channel on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, a platform popular with jihadists because of its secrecy and lack of takedowns compared to other platforms such as Twitter, read: “First method: poison.”

The potential use of poison is one that has been publicized by the group’s supporters for several years, but never used. Jihadists published a guide that directed “six ways to kill the Jews” in October 2015, the methods given were to “stab him, burn him, poison him.” They have also distributed a guide on how to poison food eaten by “crusaders.” Pro-ISIS groups have also published handbooks on how to make homemade poison.

Even though it has yet to be used, one U.S. case points to a jihadist attempting to follow the orders of the group and its followers. Police charged Amer Sinan Alhaggagi, a 22-year-old man from San Francisco, who spent time in Yemen. He is alleged to have tried to support ISIS, but also to “redefine terror” in the Bay Area.

There is no defending the enemies of freedom. There is no recourse for those that would attack our great nation but swift and complete destruction. They will hit us while we're down — how will we hit back?

Stay alert. Stay alive.
