Another jihadist boasts that they want to blow up the White House. Emperor's team says "Has nothing to do with Islam"
The threat was delivered Thursday by spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani in a 30-minute audio message titled, “So They Kill And Are Killed.” The title refers to a verse in the Koran.
“We want, Allah willing, Paris before Rome and before Al-Andalus [Spain and Portugal], [and] after that we will blacken your life and blow up your White House, Big Ben, and the Eiffel Tower, Allah willing,” Adnani said.
He added, "Muslims shall return to ruling and leadership everywhere.”
The White House immediately responded by issuing the following statement:
"This has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. Whoever made this audio has completely warped the peaceful views of the religion of peace, and the totally peaceful prophet Mohammed (pbuh), all of which are just totally, amazingly peaceful. And anyone who doesn't believe that is just an intolerant, anti-religious racist and bigot!
We will support our Muslim brothers against the winds of adversity! Allahu ackbar! And by the way, the State Department has said they believe the audio is a fake, planted on the internet by Republicans acting at the direction senator Tom Cotton! And the esteemed Republican leader of the senate, Senator McConnell, will confirm this very shortly."
