How was this not clear last September (2014)?
Without giving any credence to their reasoning or rationale, at the very least, messages like those spoken in credible "ISIS" videos are simple, clear, and precise as to their intent. Frankly, it's foolish on their part... almost as foolish as those who disregard the messages and their potency.
It goes without saying that not enough is being done to protect innocent lives abroad. Additionally, the intelligence community, is risking (and losing) lives to bring credible data to those who allocate protective resources. Despite these voluble videos and verbose intelligence reports, somehow not enough is being done to protect innocent lives domestically.
Was ISIS not clear enough?
As reported by the National Post; The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham called for attacks on Canadians back in September in an apparent attempt to deter members of the military alliance that has formed to challenge the terrorist group.
In a 42-minute audio speech, Abu Muhammad Al-Adnani
urged ISIS supporters to kill Canadians, Americans, Australians, French and other Europeans, regardless of whether they were civilians or members of the military.
"Rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone's advice and do not seek anyone's verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling,"
"Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn."
Canada is part of a U.S.-led alliance that has begun mobilizing to defeat ISIS, which has been committing widespread atrocities against Syrians and Iraqis in an attempt to impose its barbaric version of Islamic law in the region.
Reacting to the ISIS speech Monday, the Prime Minister's Office said it would not be "cowed by threats while innocent children, women, men and religious minorities live in fear of these terrorists.
"We will continue to work with allies to push back against this threat,"
Stephen Harper's spokesman Jason MacDonald said in an emailed statement.
About 30 Canadians are taking part in the conflict in Syria, some as members of ISIS. The National Post revealed on Saturday that the government had begun revoking the passports of Canadians who had left to fight with ISIS.
Since President Barack Obama outlined a strategy last week to degrade and defeat ISIS, the terror group has ramped up its propaganda campaign, releasing several videos that appear designed to portray Western military intervention as futile.
Isis making Syrians dig their grave
ISIS has released a video showing a masked gunman standing before captured Syrian troops digging their own graves.

The latest message goes a step further, warning of attacks inside Western nations. "You will not feel secure even in your bedrooms. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterwards,"
