ISIS Issuing Christmas Threats; New York’s Times Square Apparently Targeted

The Islamic State is using hi-tech and professional graphics to threaten cities in the United States and Europe during the Christmas season. A threat to New York City depicted Santa Claus standing on a platform overlooking Manhattan’s Times Square with a case marked “dynamite” at his side. The caption warns “We meet at Christmas in New York…soon.” Also targeted are landmarks like Regent Street in London, the Vatican and in Paris, the Eiffel Tower. In each case, cryptic and threatening messages authorities say are encrypted accompany the image. References to previous attacks that took place in European cities are also prevalent in the ISIS pieces.
