The latest to emerge is on the pro-ISIS Al-Battar Media Foundation website, who released a two-minute video in English titled Rightful Revenge, unearthed by the www.memri.org/ The video presents excerpts from an eye- witness’s testimony about the attack, from statements by the Las Vegas Sheriff, and from an old recording by British ISIS executioner Mohamed Emawzi, who became known as Jihadi John.
In his speech, he says that attacks on Muslims would result in bloodshed in the aggressors’ home countries.
A written message appearing on the screen declares that the film is ‘a message to America and her allies from the Islamic State,’ that ‘as you kill us in our country, we will kill you in your country’.
It also shows the scene of the atrocity from above awash with blood with the caption ‘we are back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State’.
The video also singles out Donald Trump, insisting the President had ignored their previous ‘serious’ warnings.
A song, featured regularly in previous Arabic propaganda videos, plays in the background with the lyrics ‘Oh, my brothers, jihad is the way, to bring back the honour, the glorious day. The promise of Allah will always remain, the fight for his sake is the ultimate gain’.
In order to get to the truth, sometimes one has to pursue websites that one ordinarily does not frequent. In this case, I am trying to get to the truth about Poddack and ISIS. This is a good source on the Middle East.
You cannot play the video directly from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
But you should be able to access at this link: www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4944646/ISIS-release-new-video-bragging-Vegas-shooting-REVENGE.html#v-8503192566499031271
Newsweek has also speaks about the video and gives a good assessment on its validity.
QUOTE: In the latest edition of ISIS’s weekly Al-Naba online magazine, which was shared by its supporters Thursday on encrypted messaging app Telegram, the militant network provided more information intended to bolster its prior claims that assailant Stephen Paddock converted to Islam prior to killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more, when he opened fire on concertgoers from his 32nd floor room in the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas with nearly two dozen weapons.
The new publication now specified that Paddock, who the group dubbed Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki, had allegedly “converted to Islam six months ago” and provided a play-by-play of Sunday’s bloodshed.
I am surprised that NEWSWEEK has taken this stand against those who are saying Paddock was not associated with ISIS. However, that is a very hopeful sign for the truth.
ISIS has previously claimed responsibility for attacks only to be later denied by authorities, such as an apparent botched robbery in the Philippines. Terrorism and security analysis experts, however, such as Kronos Advisory co-founder Michael S. Smith II and The New York Times correspondent Rukmini Callimachi have pointed out that the group is rarely off and such a blatantly false narrative would be out of character for the social media savvy jihadists.
The below video is shocking but a necessary warning to Americans. Please watch and heed the warning. We must be vigilant. God bless you.
