Anyone still denying the Orlando terror attack was ISIS-inspired should know ISIS just capitalized on the attack, using it for recruitment purposes in a propaganda video released yesterday. The video, titled “More Effective for Us and More Damaging Upon Them” also threatens attacks on San Francisco, Las Vegas, and France.
The film begins by showing footage of the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub massacre, juxtaposed with images of shooter Omar Mateen.
Here’s the entire video in Arabic and French courtesy of Heavy.com.
Via PJ MediaFootage is shown of President Obama making statements in the Oval Office and in the White House briefing room, with spreading spatters of blood superimposed on the screen. Clips are also shown of American Muslim leaders making statements after the Orlando shooting, including the CAIR press conference, accusing them of cooperating with disbelievers.
An image of Obama and French President Francois Hollande embracing is shown with flames rising up around the pair.
One Bosnian jihadist and two Frenchmen — one bouncing a baby in his lap — praise Mateen and Abballa and call for similar attacks in the U.S. and Europe.
Shaky handheld camera footage of the Golden Gate Bridge is shown, appearing as if it was taken with a cell phone camera along the bridge’s pedestrian walkway. The camera shot pans up to one of the supports of the suspension bridge before focusing on the cars driving past.
Video of the Las Vegas strip at night is shown; it appears to be the pedestrian bridge at the Bellagio, perhaps shot from the pedestrian bridge at Caesars Palace.
A San Francisco neighborhood is shown as the Bosnian jihadist encourages attacks. The camera first flashes up Pine Street, panning up to the top of the 52-story 555 California Street tower in the financial district, which is the second-tallest building in the city.
The video was released the same day as San Francisco’s gay pride parade, which presumably wasn’t coincidental. This is undeniably creepy.
And it has nothing to do with guns.
