JNS.orgJihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group are reportedly threatening to invade Jordan and Israel after their recent victories in Iraq.

According to the Gatestone Institute, ISIS leader Abu Baker al-Baghdadi “recently discussed with his lieutenants the possibility of extending the group’s control beyond Syria and Iraq.”

This includes invading Jordan, which shares a long border with Syria and Iraq, and extends to Israel and Egypt.

Netanyahu Greets First Wave of Ethiopian Immigrants in ‘Operation Rock of Israel’

JNS.org - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday greeted at Ben-Gurion International Airport the first group of Ethiopian immigrants...

“The ISIS terrorists see Jordan’s Western-backed King Abdullah as an enemy of Islam and an infidel, and have publicly called for his execution,” the Gatestone Institute said.

A recent video posted by ISIS threatened to “slaughter” Jordan’s pro-Western King Abdullah, who the group called a “tyrant.”

ISIS this week took control of Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul, seizing the city’s central bank and $425 million worth of cash, while also taking control of U.S.-supplied military hardware that was donated to the Iraqi military, which fled ahead of the jihadist invasion.
