The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is continuing to release “recruitment” and “motivational” videos on the worldwide web with the latest being a  video posted late Sunday, according to the Homeland Security News Wire (HSNW).

The new video displays footage of San Francisco and Las Vegas while calling on the Islamist group’s supporters to launch terrorist attacks against Christians in the United States. However, President Barack Obama and his administration remain silent on the threat to the homeland posed by radical Muslims and the video itself appears to have been removed from the Internet.

The brief video — under 15-minutes long — also threatens Christian believers in Canada, Europe and Australia. ISIS’s so-called “Nineveh province” released the video and distributed it on social media.

The video highlighted a Muslim claiming to be from Bosnian who identified himself as Abu Abdallah al-Bosni and called upon Muslim believers in America, Australia, Canada, and Europe to awaken from their dream world and start to kill Christians using booby-traps on their personal vehicles, homes and workplaces as part of the worldwide jihad.  “Kill them with sniper rifles and silencers,” he shouts, according to Homeland Security News Wire.

He tells his followers they shouldn’t treat military personnel and civilians differently “since the [U.S.-led coalition] planes don’t differentiate [when they attack] inside the Islamic State.” Al-Bosni makes no mention of the Russian government or its military even though they have killed many of the ISIS fighters in Syria.

While he is speaking, the video shows footage shot on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. Another clip shows a tall skyscraper and the Pine Street Financial District both in San Francisco.

Al-Bosni is heard in the video as he is shooting footage that shows the Las Vegas Strip.

Another ISIS terrorist, this one speaking French — identified as Abu Mujahid al-Faransi — calls on supporters to “fight the infidels inside their [homes]” and demands that “the dogs Francois Holland and Barack Obama resign because their policy will kill you one by one.”

The video also features a recent speech by ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, who on a May 21 videotaped a speech had urged “ISIS soldiers” and the group’s supporters in Europe and the U.S. to “open the doors of jihad inside their countries.”

It also shows clips of the news coverage of the Orlando mass shooting as well as a recent Paris stabbing attack that targeted a husband and wife were both police officials.

The video hails the assailants in those attacks,Omar Mateen and Larossi Abdalla, as being “soldiers of the Caliphate,” and features one alleged ISIS fighter identified as Abu al-Qaqa al-Faransi. He is shown holding a male toddler on his lap while uttering a prayer to Allah to asking him to accept Mateen and Abdalla as “martyrs.”
