Islamic State threatens to repeat 9/11 in new video warning to America
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s social media have launched a new campaign threatening to repeat 9/11 and bring war to America.
The campaign, given the hashtag #WeWillBurnUSAgain, is accompanied by a video compilation showing some of Isil’s “greatest hits”, including the beheadings of the American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.
“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” its voiceover says. “Thus you see it invades Muslim lands, and thinks that the army of jihad won’t reach in their lands.
“But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”
The hashtag campaign was announced on April 8, last Wednesday, and launched on Saturday, when pro-Isil accounts posted thousands of tweets with the hashtag with variations on the same theme, of America’s vulnerability to lone wolf and other attacks.
You are playing a game of “street war” But We are do the real streets of war , . Wolves war against the sheep of America #WewillBurnUSAgain

Altogether, the hashtag has been used more than 15,000 times, according to Site, the terrorism and extremism monitoring group.
The video, as well as reprising the 9/11 attacks on America, also shows parts of the mass beheadings of captives in Syria, and discusses the role of Ahmed Coulibaly, the French attacker who shot four hostages in a French kosher supermarket in January.
Coulibaly, who was killed at the scene, claimed allegiance to Islamic State. There is no mention of his friends the Kouachi brothers who were responsible for the Charlie Hebdo attacks at the same time – they claimed allegiance to al-Qaeda instead.
