The Islamic State released a new propaganda video just weeks before the horrific Nice terror attack. The video called for supporters to "fill your trucks with gas" while encouraging hopeful jihadists to run down people in Europe and Australia. The disturbing video showed life-like images of Islamic State terrorists filling an SUV with gas before preparing to run down people in Australia. Similarly, the video called for "lone wolf" attacks against American Christians. The call was followed by images of a suicide vest attack in New York City.

The Daily Mail reports that a disturbing propaganda video was released by the Islamic State in the weeks leading up to the Nice, France, terror attack. In the video, images of terrorists preparing to mow down a crowd with a vehicle were shown to depict a proposed attack in Australia. The terrorist organization encouraged followers to attack with vehicles and to "fill your trucks with gas."

"Kill them in any manner or way however it may be. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife or run him over with your car or throw him down from a high place or choke him or poison him."
"ISIS has produced multiple graphic Internet memes with fiery images of the Eiffel Tower burning and ISIS flags flying in New York City with captions in which they warn Christians that 'Lone wolves will hunt you in America's streets.'"

"We must break the ISIS brand that readily draws in and radicalizes recruits online. ISIS is winning in the social media space where they are convincing disengaged people in the West that violence is the solution to bringing about their version of justice through a utopian Islamic 'Caliphate.'"
