ISIS to its Muslim Brothers in the USA: “Go Kill Americans”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Islamic State has posted online what it says are the names, U.S. addresses and photos of 100 American military service members, and called upon its “brothers residing in America” to kill them.ISIS whitehouse

The Pentagon said after the information was posted on the Internet that it was investigating the matter. “I can’t confirm the validity of the information, but we are looking into it,” a U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Saturday.

“We always encourage our personnel to exercise appropriate OPSEC (operations security) and force protection procedures,” the official added.

In the posting, a group referring to itself as the “Islamic State Hacking Division” wrote in English that it had hacked several military servers, databases and emails and made public the information on 100 members of the U.S. military so that “lone wolf” attackers can kill them.

The New York Times reported that it did not look like the information had been hacked from U.S. government servers and quoted an unnamed Defense Department official as saying most of the information could be found in public records, residential address search sites and social media.

The Times quoted officials as saying the list appeared to have been drawn from personnel mentioned in news articles about air strikes on Islamic State. The group’s forces control parts of Syria and Iraq and have been targeted in U.S.-led air strikes.

The posting, addressed to disbelievers, Christians and “crusaders” in America, included what the group said were the names, military service branch, photos and street addresses of the individuals. The posting includes the military rank of some but not all of those named.

  1. ISIS Quran followers are blasphemers blaspheming against the Holy spirit. They need to be ignored. ISIS people don’t deserve to live insisting on doing what they want to do killing people. When whoever kills one don’t take pleasure in it. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Blasphemy is only against the unseen holy spirit. Whoever knows the KJV Cambridge edition bible will know that. Why then is blasphemy against everything else? The penalty is eternal soul death. Final reward if not
    life – life. Quran followers end up being blasphemers when they obey the Quran.
