Saudi Arabiaâ€™s King Abdullah has a stark warning to America: The Islamic Stateâ€™s terror will visit American shores in one month if it is not confronted in Syria and Iraq.
â€œIf we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,â€ the king said Saturday, Agence France Presse reported. His comments came while he was speaking at ceremony for new ambassadors.
â€œTerrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East. [â€¦] It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: â€˜Fight terrorism with force, reason and speed.â€™â€
King Abdullahâ€™s warning for the western world comes one day after a government watchdog reported that a federal bulletin released to law enforcement agencies has warned that the Islamic State group, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS, has infiltrated Mexicoâ€™s city of Ciudad Juarez for an imminent attack on America.
â€œHigh-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,â€ the statement read, Judicial Watch reported Friday.
Earlier in the week, U.S. officials told The Blaze that a â€œsignificant increaseâ€ in chatter among terrorist groups has been observed in recent weeks.
