The Islamic State (IS) terror group threatened to behead President Barack Obama inside the White House in a new propaganda video released this week, according to a watchdog group monitoring the terror group.
In the video, titled, "Bombardment of Peaceful Muslims in the City of Mosul," an IS (also known as ISIS and ISIL) militant is shown beheading a captured Kurdish fighter and making threats to the West.
"The fighter makes threats against the U.S., France, Belgium, and the Kurds," according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). "He threatens that he and his comrades will reach America and behead Barack Obama in the White House"
The IS militant also says that the group "will target France and Belgium with car bombs and explosives and will behead Kurdistan Regional Government President Masoud Barzani," according to MEMRI.
After showing scenes of burnt bodies and destruction caused by the ongoing fighting in Iraq, "a group of armed and masked ISIS fighters stand on a Mosul street around a Kurdish soldier who is kneeling on the ground," MEMRI writes.
"Before beheading the captive, an ISIS fighter delivers ‘a message to the entire world’ in Kurdish (subtitled in Arabic), in which he furiously threatens the U.S. and Obama, France and Belgium, and the Kurds," according to MEMRI.
The masked militant then threatens Obama.
"This is the fate of anyone who opposes Islam," he is quoted as saying. "Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province."
"And this is my message to France and its sister, Belgium," he continues. "We advise you that we will come to you with car bombs and explosive charges, and we will cut off your heads."
