Since Trump was elected a month ago, ISIS has called for violent attacks, but they are planning something big for “Blood Friday”.
Friday, January 20th, Donald J. Trump will become the 45th President of the United States. We call this day Inauguration day, but ISIS is calling it “Bloody Friday”.
The radical Islamic group has ramped up its recruiting and messaging inside America with subtitled videos and translated message boards online.
According to news reports, ISIS is claiming that it has recruited a number of English speaking soldiers in the past couple of months. They are calling for attacks, but are they actually planning one?
Just last week Abdul Razak Ali Artan attacked 11 people on the Ohio State campus with a knife. Artan ranted on Facebook about ISIS before the attack according to Cincinnati’s special agent charge for the FBI, Angela Byers.
ISIS also released a report on its al-Naba publication that Artan was a member of their group. Although the FBI is not confirming a direct connection to ISIS, the terrorist group is.
Investigators are saying the “chatter” between terrorist groups and different members are increasing. The UK’s Express Daily is reporting that groups are planning “large scale attacks” on Inauguration day.
An Inauguration Day attack would be bold, dangerous and it would send a very poignant message to Trump and his administration. That is if they can pull it off.
Even without the threat of ISIS, all major law enforcement agencies will be on high alert for the event. Thousands of protestors are expected to join the tens of thousands of people coming to watch the Inauguration.
With the continued threats coming from ISIS and many Americans that are not happy with Trump, Washington will feel like occupied France on January 20th.
ISIS rarely lives up to its rhetoric, but planning an attack on the inauguration could be their boldest move yet inside of America. Luckily the FBI and many other agencies are working hard to make sure we are attack free.
This isn’t the first time that terrorists wanted to turn the Inauguration into a “blood bath”. CNN reported about terrorist threats prior to Obama’s inauguration.
The FBI did a great job during the Obama Inauguration and we expect them to do the same on January 20th.
Despite any terror threats, are you planning on attending Trump’s Inauguration? Let us know in the comments below.
