In New Video, ISIS Warns Paris-style Attack on US 'Isn't Far'

The Islamic State has warned America in a new video that a Paris-style attack on the homeland is imminent.

The video, titled “A Message to America From the Islamic Caliphate Supporters,” shows scenes from wars in the Middle East and the Paris attack.

The English-speaking man narrating it then warns: “Paris isn’t far from you - we will by Allah’s permission do to your country what we did to Paris. We will kill, slaughter and burn your people.”

“You dogs of Rome, Kerry and Obama, haven't you learned your lesson yet?” it continued.

'Fighting the Islamic caliphate state is making you lose lots of wealth and even losing the lives of your army as well as your people.'

He also makes reference to cyber attacks on the terror group and attempts to shut down their online operation. 

'No matter how many times you delete our accounts or chase our places and no matter how you fight us, we are still here and we will support the Islamic caliphate state.'

According to the Sun, the video cuts to older footage of Jihadi John -killed in a US drone strike last year - wearing a balaclava and standing over his prisoners. 

Heading into the New Year polling found that terrorism ranked as Americans’ top concern. This video, coupled with the Obama administration’s failed ISIS strategy and goal of closing down Guantanamo Bay, does little to allay those fears.
