ISIS Group Puts Crosshairs on Vegas Hotel in Threat to Shed 'Dirty Blood'

An ISIS-supporting media group threatened another Vegas-style massacre in a new propaganda image, yet zeroed in on a Strip hotel other than the Mandalay Bay.

"The disbeliever west will see our power through the jihad of sincere people and the sacrifice of monotheists. We will be generous in shedding your dirty blood unless you embrace Islam or give the jizyah," states the message, referencing a tax paid by non-Muslims. "However, Las Vegas' massacre is not far from you."

The poster distributed online includes a shadowy backdrop of masked jihadists carrying an ISIS flag, hovering over a photo from the Vegas strip. The words "Las Vegas," crosshairs and flames are positioned over the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

The threat was distributed by the Wafa' Media Foundation, which released numerous threats during the holiday season.

A November poster showed smoke rising from Rome with a fighter jet overhead and a jihadist standing next to the sort of makeshift armored vehicle ISIS uses for suicide bombings in Iraq and Syria. "The date is approaching o worshippers of the cross," stated the message on the image.

Wafa' released a Vatican "wolf" image, with a backpack, rocket-propelled grenade and rifle at the jihadist's side as storm clouds gathered over a twilight St. Peter's Square. In a message to fellow jihadists, the group noted that "the crusaders' feast is approaching."

In another instance, Wafa' circulated a poster depicting a vehicle moving toward the Vatican with a cache of weapons, vowing "Christmas blood."
