President Trump may have the Islamic State on the run in the Middle East, but that hasn't stopped the terrorist organization from issuing a new video online calling on its "brothers in Europe, America, Russia, Australia and elsewhere" to kill all the unbelievers, as "it is now time to rise."
According to PJ Media, the English-language video from ISIS' official Al-Hayat Media Center was distributed widely on YouTube and social media. It depicts scenes of ISIS-directed or -inspired terrorism in the West, including the Westminster Bridge attack from last March, and an ISIS pledge video recorded by Berlin Christmas market terrorist Anis Amri, along with clips of ISIS in the battlefield and carrying out beheadings in Syria.
The video also shows scenes from October's mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival, the 2015 San Bernardino massacre, the 2015 Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket siege in France, and the 2016 Bastille Day attack in Nice, France, which left 86 dead and over 450 injured.
The narrator begins, "Your brothers in your lands have absolved themselves of blame, so leap onto their tracks and take an example from their actions and know that jannah [paradise] is beneath the shadows of swords." Then inspirational music offers up such lyrics as,
"Go answer the call, don't spare none, kill them all, it is now time to rise, slit their throats, watch them die. The Islamic State stands, and it stands and demands, that you worship the one, whom besides there is none.
"We're the grandsons of men, who gave all that they can, to rule all of the lands, with the law of Islam. Holding up the flag high, and seeking paradise, o my brothers stay strong, victory won't be long."
"Together we will stand up, once filled with iman [faith], men who answered the call, terrorizing the world.
"Through our blood comes success, and we'll give it our best, to destroy the kuffar [disbelievers], we will slaughter them all. So my brothers erupt, let the world know we're up, by the will of Allah, we will conquer the world."

This week, the ISIS-supporting Wafa' Media Foundation threatened another Vegas-style massacre in a propaganda image showing crosshairs and flames positioned over the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
In a December video released by Al-Hayat, a one-legged American jihadist referred to by nom de guerre Abu Salih Al-Amriki called for would-be terrorists to take advantage of gun availability in the United States.
Abu Salih said the ISIS flag will be raised above the White House. "Yes, America, you will be overcome from where you least expect it," he added.
Meanwhile, law enforcement in the West is focused on clamping down hard on so-called Islamophobia.
