Islamic State has released a new video in English, threatening the United States and its allies that are fighting the Sunni terror group in Iraq and Syria, to "bring it on," and mocking the U.S. army with the claim that 6,500 American soldiers kill themselves each year.
The roughly four-minute video begins with the description of the "Caliph's" territory, saying it's a state built on "prophetic methodology, striving to follow the Quran and Sunna." It states that secular states are built on man-made laws, and then calls all Muslims to come under one flag.
"This is the source of our glory: our obedience to our lord. We are uncompromising in our call to Tawhid (Islamic monotheism). We only call to Allah, unlike the countless deviant factions raising their false banners," it says.
It says the Caliph's territory is larger than Britain, eight times the size of Belgium and 30 times the size of Qatar.
"America, you claim to have the greatest army the history has known," the voiceover says. "You may have the numbers and weapons," but U.S. soldiers are still scarred from their "defeat" in Afghanistan and Iraq, and they have become suicidal, it claims, saying over 6,500 U.S. soldiers commit suicide annually.
The video also says that the U.S. army is fighting on behalf of "legislators, liars, fornicators, corporations and for the freedoms of sodomites," and that it is "too weak" to fight on the ground in territories of Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, in Syria and Iraq.
"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."
It cites a prophecy, saying ISIS will fight "80 banners," or partners in the international coalition fighting the terror group. As of now, 60 nations are part of the coalition, which the video refers to as a "coalition of devils."
"Our prophet said (the coalition) would reach 80 in number and then the flames of war will finally burn you on the hills of death," the videp adds. It then warns, "Your numbers only increase our faith."
Earlier this month, ISIS claimed responsibility for two attacks.
On Nov. 13, eight ISIS men carried out six attacks in Paris, killing at least 130 people.
The day before the attacks in Paris, a double suicide bomb assault in Beirut, Lebanon, killed at least 43 people and wounded more than 239 others, targeting Shia Muslims. ISIS claimed responsibility also for this attack.
