CBN News — The terrorist group known as Islamic State, or ISIS, has issued a call on jihadis around the world to kill Twitter employees over blocked accounts. Among those on the target list include Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey.
“Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you,” an online post released by ISIS said. “We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back.”
Twitter is taking the threats seriously. In recent weeks, Twitter and YouTube have deleted posts and shutdown accounts that released ISIS videos.
Meanwhile, one brave Muslim woman said President Barack Obama’s insistence that ISIS is not Islamic is “completely wrong” and that his reluctance to label the enemy will have dire consequences.
Asra Nomani is author of Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam.
Nomani recently wrote an article for The Daily Beast titled, “Will It Take the End of the World for Obama to Recognize ISIS as ‘Islamic’?” in which she argues that the president’s “verbal tap dance around Islamic theology and extremism” is “completely wrong.”
“We have to own the issue of extremist Islamic theology in order to defeat it and remove it from our world. We have to name it to tame it,” Nomani wrote.
She describes herself as a Muslim feminist and is a contributor at The Daily Beast.
In an in-depth interview with CBN News, Nomani also warned that ISIS is on an end-of-days Islamic apocalyptic mission. She said the world must grasp their evil ideology to even try to defeat them.
If the world doesn’t wake up to their spiritual and territorial ambitions, she warns the consequences for the region and especially for Christians of the Middle East will be dire.
