The scourge of radical Islamic terror continues to slither through the crevices of our modern day society.
In Europe, this has manifested itself in deplorable physical attacks that span much of the continent. Thanks to the foolhardy decision by the European Union to initiate a migrant quota system within its member nations, ISIS and other groups have been able to easily disguise their operatives as refugees for the purpose of spreading their caliphate ideologies and tactics to the far corners of France, Germany, England, and beyond.
Another locale in which these terrorist organizations have been extremely successful in creating an infestation has been the internet. With the rise of social media and the introduction of the Dark Web, terror groups such as ISIS are recruiting, training, and planning for attacks with new members at a breakneck pace.
The web is also where the organization is able to publish its most heinous threats, recently taking figurative and artistically literal aim at The Vatican as it implored its followers to target the Catholic Church in the coming months.
Today it was revealed that ISIS had another target in mind as well: Barron Trump.
“According to The Washington Free Beacon, ‘pro-ISIS internet channels are calling for the assassination of President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and have shared personal details of the child’s life on its social media networks, including the address of his school.’
“The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated a mass call for terrorists to assassinate Barron Trump that was disseminated on the widely-used Telegram app. The message not only shared the name of Barron’s school, but also a Google map image pinpointing its location.
“‘Using the hashtag ‘handle the son of the mule of America,’ the supporter, who uses the name ‘Dak Al-Munafiqeen,’ Arabic for ‘striking the hypocrites,’ wrote: ‘Barron Trump goes to this school in Washington,’ according to MEMRI. ‘The post was followed by a photo of Barron Trump. To widely disseminate the call for assassination, several pro-ISIS Telegram channels have shared and forwarded the post.'”
This horrific new targeting of the President’s family belies the true nature of these wretched radical Islamic jihadists and their desire to create a new world of chaos and hate.
The President and his family are, of course, protected by the Secret Service, however, recent incidents have not inspired the outmost confidence in the special police detail. A fence jumper at the White House earlier this year was allowed to wander the grounds for nearly 15 minutes without being stopped or accosted by any Secret Service agents.
