Islamic State Al Hayat media group releases new nasheed video w/ English subtitles promising "we will break the cross" and a "war for eternity." See email.

Supplemental Info:

A nasheed (alt nashid) is an Arabic musical chant, typically sung a cappella or accompanied by percussion instruments. 

The classical Arabic phrase "break the cross" is found in a famous Islamic hadith about Jesus, understood in Islam to be a Muslim prophet who will return to the earth as a cross-destroying enforcer of Islamic Sharia law.

Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, 'By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely [Jesus,] the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly [as a Just Ruler]; he will break the cross and kill the pigs and there will be no jizya..."

Sahih al-Bukhari 4:60:3448.

The term "jizya" is a tax extracted from non-Muslims. In the context above, there will be no "jizya" as non Muslims will all be forced to convert to Islam or be killed.

This video has been released across most major social media platforms including encrypted Islamic State Telegram channels.

The major takeaway from Islamic State videos and other propaganda is that despite withering battlefield losses in Syria and Iraq, the threat posed by radical Islam has not abated. The tempo of attacks will ebb and flow, but the threat remains.
New coordinated policies with major social media platforms such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have copies of these videos being deleted soon after they appear in an effort to reduce widespread circulation of jihadist propaganda. In turn, this creates challenges for AlertsUSA in being able to point subscribers to a location for viewing before links break and without you potentially ending up on a list.

AlertsUSA is working with law enforcement partners to establish mechanisms through which such media can be stored and shared with subscribers without creating problems.

We will keep you informed.
