A user going by the name of “Abu Marya al-Iraqi” posted an Arabic-language message, according to Vocativ, that calls for  “for bloody celebrations in the Christian New Year.” The post, which appeared on the Telegram website, proclaimed the terrorists’ plan to engage lone-wolf killers to “turn the Christian New Year into a bloody horror movie.”
 
Telegram, which also provides manuals for the use and preparations of weapons and explosives, distributed information that includes a public directory of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues throughout the United States. 
 
Elsewhere on the website, a member called on “the sons of Islam” to attack  “churches, well-known hotels, crowded coffee shops, streets, markets and public places.” Addresses in Canada, France, The Netherlands, and the U.S. were included. There was a list of addresses in the United States, as well as in Canada, France and the Netherlands. Included were churches and synagogues in California, New York, and Texas, according to The Christian Times.
 
Also included are the names of 15,000 who are targeted to be killed by the Muslim terrorists. There are reports that ISIS combed through church directories to find the names and addresses of congregants. “It appears a Muslim group is trolling the internet and getting church directories and posting names for anyone to kill. Quite frightening," said an email received by Charisma News who is among the threatened. "I have talked to the ***** *** FBI Office numerous times now and they say they do not have suspects but this appears to be a new tactic."
 
The man added that the FBI advised him "the threat could be low." Most of the people on the list have not been warned by the FBI. The Islamic State (ISIS) published on encrypted websites the names of intended victims, most of whom are in California, Florida, New York, and Texas. They are to be assassinated by “sleeper cells or lone wolves.”
 
Back in July, ISIS released a similar list of targeted churches.
