ISIS prepares for U.S. Independence Day.

American police forces from coast to coast are on alert from federal officials that the Islamic State (ISIS) is planning to terrorize the country during the July 4 Independence Day holiday.

Homeland Security, the FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center sent an intelligence bulletin to law enforcement agencies.


No specific plots were spelled out, according to CNN, but there was a general warning because of the holiday and the upcoming visit of Pope Francis.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Friday, following multiple ISIS-linked attacks in France, Kuwait and Tunisia:

Particularly with the upcoming July 4th holiday here in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI continue to communicate with state and local law enforcement about what we know and see.

We are encouraging all law enforcement to be vigilant and prepared. We will also adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people.

In Britain, the ISIS targeted the annual Armed Forces Day parade on Saturday, but intelligence officials foiled the plot, which was discovered by an undercover British agent who was recruited by the terrorist group.

The ISIS had told the investigator, according to the London Sun, “It will be big. We will hit the kuffar (unbelievers) hard InshAllah. Hit their soldiers in their own land. InshAllah. Soldiers that served in Iraq and Afghanistan will be present. Jump in the crowd and detonate the bomb.

“They think they can kill Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan then come back to the UK and be safe. We’ll hit them hard InshAllah.”

The multiple attacks on Friday indicate, whether coordinated or not, are clear signs that the Islamic State’s declared war on the world is more than rhetoric.

Dismissing the murderers as “lone wolves,” as some of Israel’s security officials and leftist media try to do in order to play down Palestinian Authority-incited terror, is not going to satisfy the nationwide American fear of the ISIS.

  1. In regard to above statement: I'll do all I can to keep my vernacular "clean" in spite of my personal disdain for ALL that is against any facet of MY beloved Jewish cohorts. Be ascertained that I am 100% willing to proliferate any/all PRO Israel concerns in any manner available to my human capacity, and I thank all of you for simply existing, and all you are in the LORD.. Shalom Shabat!!!!!! LONG LIVE THE Nation of His design!!!

  2. The past 6 1/2 yrs are the first time in my teen and adult yrs. That I have not felt safe in America. It is because of Obama and the Democrats. Maybe Bush wasn’t perfect. But he sure was a heck of a lot better than what we have now. He let terrorist know we weren’t taking their crap. What Has Obama done since the Boston attack…that’s right NOTHING !!! Our Borders are wide open to any goon that wants to pass through. Most are criminals.

  3. No matter what, thats why the United states must stand UNITED and not fight amongst ourselves. We all love our country, we all want to protect our families. We all want a loving, peaceful existance, We all want the freedoms that the Constitution provides us. We all want equal rights as Americans, for ourselves and our loved ones….SO LETS PUT FORTH A UNITED FRONT AGAINST THE EVIL ONES TRYING TO HURT OUR COUNTRY! UNITED WE STAND….DIVIDED WE FALL!!!! <3

  4. You want proof the mexican border is wide open just watch some news. Or get your dumb ass down there and witness it. Univision big shot anchor Ramos swam across from a drain pipe himself. Come up to dearborn Michigan and look around at the signage.

  5. Isis is in the United States. Are you so stupid that you think Muslims are not crossing the border just as frequently as Mexicans and South Americans? We have no security. A Muslim is the head of Homeland Security. I guess you have only been watching NBC news, the network of fairy tales.

  6. There were pictures of border agents apprehending several Isis members last month. For every one that is caught, there are probably a dozen that made it through. Besides, what do you think they are doing in these camps with thousands of Muslims. I have seen it with my own eyes at the one in South Georgia. Look it up on the web and then take a ride.

  7. Israel warned us when Saddam was shipping WMD’s out by truck to ship before UN inspectors came. But for years the media ridiculed that report, the UN inspectors first said they found nothing but recently changed their story and said they DID find evidence and our troops in Iraq came across evidence of stockpiles. Israel has the best intelligence network in the world. We’d be smart to keep them as an ally but this administration doesn’t seem to work very hard at it.

  8. so sick of hearing about isis…sandra, has NOTHING to do with obama. what in the world would you have him do? bomb the planet? start another war? where? they’re everywhere! LOVE OBAMA…A REAL, CARING, GENUINE, SUPER INTELLIGENT, LOVING PERSON. voted for him twice, would vote for him 10 more x’s. just don’t get this hatred, especially this week. he initiated this wonderful gay equality scotus ruling! gave us all affordable healthcare! has tried to do something about the gun epidemic in this ed up country, and trying to do something about racial inequality…he saved us from another great depression. what could be better? if romney had won, we’d all be standing in soup kitchen lines…no question. GET A LIFE!

  9. yosef, we have the strongest military in the world! we spend an insane amount of money on the military-industrial complex! ridic! he has attended so many funerals for fallen soldiers. watch real news and read real news…not bs faux news! GET A LIFE! SUCH HATRED BY IDIOTS THIS WEEK OF ALL WEEKS! i am jewish and don’t think he has done a good job there, but i’m an american first, and he has saved this country! the next dem pres, and the dems will def win with this pub clown car, will repair relations and we’ll be back on track. we are still supporting israel and always will. israelis know that…i know some of them.

  10. The men who flew into the World Trade Center were the desendents of the Assayrians that Attacked Israel when Israel had turn from God and sinned. They were also used by God the second time they attacked Israel and carried them away into captivity. These ISIS are also Assayrians and or of the same group of the first ones. God has send American a warning in 9/11 and we would not repent there is coming a second one more devestating than the first. Because instead of repenting American sinks deeper into sin and rebellion against God. Judgment coming to American. Let all those that are called by his name pray night and day for the Church is the only think keeping that judgment away.

  11. I agree there are so many radical Muslims already here and planning. They are embolden by our lackadaisical government and spitting in our faces through social media. While everyone is focused on Supreme Court decisions and the continued racial tensions, those radicals are preparing. Wake up America!

  12. The 9/11 should never have happened with all the security America has they still got in and made a complete fool of america sorry but they are a force to be reconed with I have my holiday booked but I have cancelled it as I think to much of my family but next year maybe ?

  13. Peter Schierau – Do you praactice being stupid or were you born that way? Did Bush protect the homeland? NO he did not! Eveything nyou see and think is hapaning is the direct result of George Bush the Younger and I am tired of stupid people like you saying Obama is at fault. At fault of what? The things you want to hapen just some idiot like you can say "see I told you so" In the mean time you ignorant idiot there have been no attacks on the US since Obama has been in office, so the best thing you can do is just shut up and stop saying stupid ignorant things!

  14. Yaakov Zelig, you are another ignorant stupid person who is praying for an attack on America just so you can say I told you so! Well you moron, there have been NO attacks on America since Obama has been in office. As a matter of fact the only attack on the Homeland was when your good friend Bush the Younger was President and to further go along it is he who caused ISIS to form! Now be a good little boy and stop trying to scare people with your insanity of saying something is going to happen just so you can say "I told you so"

  15. Do you ractice being stupid and ignorant or were you born that way? You are simply stupid and totally uninformed about guns in the US. Obama has NEVER EVER TRIED TO TAKE AWAY ANYONES GUNS! Ignorant repubs try to scare low intellignet low educated morons like yourself into thinking he is going to take away guns and as of today, he has never taken away or even tried to take away anyones guns! It's one thing to fly an airplane into a building, it's another to try a "land assult" There are simply too many Americans who have gunds and assult weapons to think ISIS can ever get a hold of anything in America! Americans have to much fire power and willsimply destroy anyone who tries to attack us.

  16. Ariel Snachule You are an ignorant idiot if you think the Presiadent is antisemitic! You are more antisemetic than President Obama will ever be. The only US officials who did not have a clue were during the Bush the Younger years in office! There have been no attacks on the US under President Obama! If you think there has been any attacks you need to check yourself into a mental hospital and get a through brain exam!

  17. Edward Lobel Don't dumb Jew's,like you ever learn. Stop a.k. ing the anti-semitic liberals. They are not our friends. The reason there were no attacks during our Muslim government is because Bush, a friend of ISRAEL, put them on the defensive. You probably never served in the military and don't understand how these things work.

  18. Edward Lobel is an ignorant, brainwashed, dolt.
    In addition to the multiple foreign policy debacles of the Obama reign, here is a list of domestic attacks and the list is from Sept 2011:

  19. Unfortunately, after last Friday's Supreme Court ruling in favor of what God calls an abomination and the Justices basically spitting in God's face and flipping Him the middle finger at the same time, that's never going to happen. In fact, according to Romans 1 this country has just forced God's Hand to turn this country over to "a depraved mind." Although it's hard to see how much more depraved the lunatics running this country and those voting said lunatics into office could get. And yet, when the next terrorist attack happens – and it will as God has now removed His Divine protection – these same ungodly, wicked, evil people will be standing around glass eyed asking why God allowed it to happen. I'd ask for God's mercy, but frankly this country deserves any and all consequences that are going to come on it for defying God yet again. If I'm sick of the cesspool of wickedness this country has become I can just imagine how God feels.

  20. Edward Lobel You forgot? The mad muslims Boston bombing? The muslim beheading of a woman and attempting another. Jews being stabbed in Florida. I`d have to disagree with you. We are already being terrorized and attacked by Islamist`s. Of which Obama has said he is one.

  21. Can someone tell us what,who, to call if we see something not right. By then might be to late. We feel that isis will target places, not people. Things, and items that will cause big headaches. God Bless the U.S.A. We are proud Americans. Old Glory! Tom, and My better half Sandy.

  22. The American media believes that Americans fear ISIS. Otherwise, they have no story to tell about the fear of ISIS. Perhaps some people do fear them here?

    As for the rest? Well, I hear them all target practicing around here every weekend.

    I pity the poor fool who puts an ISIS flag on their vehicle for kicks, and then drives around in my area. People are just itching to see their first one. Many of them still have their Terrorist Hunting Permit tags with no bag limits from 9-11, which they still haven't filled out yet.
