The Islamic State has threatened to strike the American homeland after President Barack Obama authorized military airstrikes against the group.
The spokesman for the terror group the Islamic State has declared that they will wage war against the U.S. on American soil following authorization from President Obama to use airstrikes against the group.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established," said Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group said in a video posted onlione. "Don't be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq."

"We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House," he added.
The Caliphate's threat came on August 7, just hours before Obama announced that he would authorize airstrikes against the group to protect Americans in Iraq.
"Today I authorized two operations in Iraq," the president. "Targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel, and a humanitarian effort to save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water, and are facing almost certain death."
"To stop the advance on Erbil, I've directed our military to take targeted strikes against ISIL terrorist convoys should they move toward the city," he continued. "We intend to stay vigilant, and take action if these terrorist forces threaten our personnel or facilities anywhere in Iraq, including our consulate in Erbil and our embassy in Baghdad."
The Islamic State now controls a great deal of territory in Syria and Iraq, where a brutal and traditional form of Islamic law has been implemented. This included conversion or genocide of religious minorities, including Christians, who do not convert.
