Islamic State: We will drown all of you in blood

Baghdad - The Islamic State militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq and drawn the first American air strikes since the end of the occupation in 2011 has warned the United States it will attack Americans "in any place" if the raids hit its militants.

The video, which shows a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the US occupation of Iraq and victims of snipers, featured a statement which said in English "we will drown all of you in blood".

US airstrikes on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have helped the fighters take back some territory captured by Islamic State militants, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.

The latest advance by the Islamic State, an al-Qaeda offshoot, sent tens of thousands of members of the Yazidi ethnic minority and Christians fleeing for their lives and alarmed the Baghdad government and its Western allies.

Unlike al-Qaeda, Islamic State has so far focused on seizing land in Iraq and Syria for its self-proclaimed caliphate, not spectacular attacks on Western targets.

US President Barack Obama said at a news conference on Monday that the Islamic State posed a threat to Iraq and the entire region.

Islam- a religion of peace only when it is the last religion left, and even then they will turn on each other.

"we will drown all of you in blood". There is an old saying "don't poke the bear..." Well in this case it is "don't poke the USA..." It is amazing that these retards did not learn the first time that they thought they could beat the US. It is only a matter off time before they drop a freaking Nuke on you a$$... So carry on ISIL carry on please it is about time that you freaks learn your place in society, under the western boot...

So far i have not heard a single comment from our government or COSATU or the EFF or even the Bishop himself on the ISM. From this silence is it that they support these barbaric people who murder, rape and have no morals whatssoever...???

Now where are all the muslim protesters? Why aren't they condemning these lunatics? As usual they remain very quiet when islamic jihadists and extremists are the perpetrators of crimes against innocents, yet when its the other way around they shout and march and burn and complain. Sick and tired of their incredible and unbelievable hypocrisy.

biggest problem in the middle east is the Arab countries who use the qoran to keep their people oppressed ,they themselves fund terrorist orginizations like isis ,countries like Saudi Arabia who oppress all minorities no freedom of religion and use people to wage war against shia muslims ,muslims should not support these countries and then mabye the true enemy of the middle east will be defeated
