A new ISIS video taunts America and the West while mocking the suicides of U.S. soldiers. The United by Islam video posted to YouTube tells the United States to “bring it on.” President Barack Obama recently dismissed statements by Republican presidential candidates referring to the Islamic State as dangerous Islamist extremists. The president instead referred to the ISIS fighters as “a bunch of killers with good social media.”
The new ISIS video says that the Prophet predicted that all of “Islam’s enemies” would be destroyed by the “flames of war,” a Daily Mail report notes. The video taunting America and the West goes on to state that the destruction would begin when the number of banners (flags) opposing them reaches 80. During a joint press conference with the French president, Obama made a point to note that he has built a coalition of 65 countries to fight ISIS. The comment was made in a chastising manner when referencing the recent activities by Vladimir Putin and the Russian military in the Syrian region.
The ISIS video taunts America repeatedly and urges leaders to “bring it on” and adds that the vast numbers, referencing the size of the United States military, only increase the faith of jihadists and members of the Islamic State. The video also graphically points out that about 6,500 American soldiers commit suicide each year, the New York Times reports.
In the new ISIS video threatening the United States and the West, the man offering the voiceover in English maintains that the Islamic States encompasses an area greater than the size of the United Kingdom. President Obama’s international coalition of 65 countries was referred to as a “coalition of devils” in the Islamic State video recently posted to YouTube.
“Our prophet said [they] would reach 80 in number and then the flames of war will finally burn you on the hills of death,” the voiceover address during the video says.

“Gather your allies. Plot against us and show us no respite. Our ally is the greatest. He is Allah and all glory goes to him,” the ISIS video also states. “Our ally is the greatest, he is Allah and all glory goes to him.”
The video also maintains that ISIS “sows fear” in the hearts of American soldiers and states that America is simply “too weak” to put boots on the ground in Syria.

The new ISIS video appears to have been created with Hollywood-style attention to graphics, infographics, and with a keen emphasis on including quality background music and a crisp and clear voiceover throughout the presentation.
The ongoing threat posed by ISIS and the controversial Syrian refugees issue continue to dominate presidential politics. President Obama had begun to take heat for his Islamic State policy even from within the left-wing of his own party. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders steadfastly refused to refer to ISIS militants that have vowed to wage jihad on the United States as extremist Islamist terrorists. GOP presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have doubled down on their hardline stance to terror threats issued by ISIS and the national security threats possibly posed by Syrian refugees.
