The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) has released a video called “Orlando Attack” that celebrates Omar Mateen and the murder of 49 people at Pulse in Orlando, FL.
Mateen called 911 and pledged allegiance to the terrorist group before he opened fire at the popular gay club. ISIS praised the terrorist:
“One of Islamic State’s lions, set out to restore the glory of the Ummah and avenge the death of Muslims. He shook the head of kufr America, terrorized it and shed its blood. He is Omar Mateen.”
As it shows scenes from the area, ISIS promises they are here stay and expanding in the Middle East. The group also promised more attacks on America, “the evil, crusade, infidel among the worst of the unbelievers,” if the military doesn’t stop airstrikes against them in Iraq and Syria.
The video also tells the viewer that the terrorist group “has alerted the Muslims to march forth and strike the Kuffar in the lands of Kufr.”
Over a photo of Pulse, ISIS encourages people to “kill them wherever you find them.” They also remind terrorists they can “kill any unbeliever who he is able to kill among the Kuffar Muharibin (combatant Kuffar).”
The video says that “New York, Washington, Orlando, and other cities will not feel safety and comfort” if the war against ISIS continues.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack through their Amaq Agency.

They released another statement on Monday:
“One of the Caliphate’s soldiers in America carried out a security invasion where he was able to enter a crusader gathering at a nightclub for homosexuals in Orlando, Florida … where he killed and injured more than a hundred of them before he was killed,” the group said in its broadcast.
However, law enforcement has confirmed that Mateen visited online gay chats and published profiles on gay dating apps. They do not know if he was gay or looking for targets. No one has confirmed sexual relations with him.
His father Seddique said their Islam religion had nothing to do with the terrorist attack. He claimed his son “got angry” when he saw two men kissing Miami. Mateen expressed disgust with the action, especially since he had his son with him.
High school classmate Samuel King never saw homophobic behavior from Mateen. He insisted Mateen knew he was gay and would even drink at the bar at Ruby Tuesday even though he knew the bartenders were lesbians. King showed Mateen pictures of him as a drag queen and brought him to one show.DONATE
