ISIS threatens Jerusalem Christians for the first time

A communiqué from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria warned Christians to leave Jerusalem, starting with the Palestinian neighborhoods of Shuafat and Beit Hanina, threatening to “clean” all Islamic neighborhoods where they live during the month of Ramadan. Leaflets delivered at the homes of Christian residents give them a month to leave. ISIS will then move on to the Old City and Church of the Sepulchre to “cleanse” those who “betrayed the Omarite covenant.” It is signed by the ISIS Emirate of Beit Al Maqdis – the name of the Islamist terrorist group of Sinai which has joined ISIS.
