Playing with terrorism entails terrible and irreversible consequences. Watching what’s happening in the world, it is hard to argue with this statement.
Europe became mired in cruel terror attacks which led to hundreds dead and wounded. The European Union is perplexed, the U.S. administration makes every effort to hide the truth – in this game with terrorists, the West is the loser.
It has been a week since the terror attack in Barcelona, and ISIS terrorists have launched a large-scale information campaign concerning intimidation and new threats against the safety of the West.
ISIS released a propaganda video Tuesday that shows an American boy whose father fought in Iraq.
The child, who spoke in fluent English, was identified as Yousef, age 10. He said that “the airstrikes against ISIS would move to the West” and promised Trump that “the battle would end in the United States“. Yousef also added that the war against the U.S. and its allies had just begun.

Heather Nauert, U.S. State Department Spokesperson, has not yet confirmed the identity of the boy or the authenticity of the video.
Recently, ISIS militants have released footage, where two ISIS fighters were speaking Spanish. They were praising attackers and urging for more terror attacks in Spain.
The foreign fighters were identified as Abu Layth Al-Qurtubi from Spain’s Cordoba region and Abu Salman Al-Andalusi, supposedly from the Spanish province of Andalusia.
ISIS’s threats were also waged against Germany. The ISIS propaganda magazine Rumiyah reported that the Dresden Frauenkirche was the next ISIS target.
Dresden Police President Horst Kretzschmar confirmed the level of threat was extremely high.
Obviously, now more than ever, Europeans realize the threat that is a direct result of the Western double standard toward the Middle East.
Constant indiscriminate attacks, ousting the legitimate authorities, inaction in fighting terrorism, support for armed opposition groups, and economic isolation of a number of the Middle Eastern countries – all of these gave terrorists the opportunity to expand the scope of their crimes.
The Western politicians must stop pursuing their interests and realize that despite defeats in Mosul and Raqqa, ISIS terrorists are still dangerous and continue to pose a threat to international peace and security.
