ISIS Targets Herald Square, Times Square, And Macy's Parade Just in Time for Thanksgiving
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a New York City tradition since 1924, is just one week away. It will follow both this week's ISIS video terror threat targeting the tourist-populated Times Square area and Herald Square, purportedly issued by the Islamic State militant group, and last week's deadly terror attacks in Paris, for which ISIS also claimed responsibility. While it's unclear how or if they will deter groups of people from going to next week's festivities -- which attracts about 3 million people a year -- the New York Police Department, which has planned an increased security presence of an additional 1,300 cops on the streets along the parade route. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade travels through Columbus Circle, near Times Square and through Herald Square before ending up at the Macy's store located in Herald Square at 151 W 34th St, New York, NY 10001.
New ISIS video shows several scenes in Manhattan including Times Square, a Gap in Herald Square, T.G.I. Friday's and yellow taxi cabs on city streets like around Columbus Circle. It also includes images of terrorist sharpshooters and terrorists wearing suicide belts. The new video features footage from a previously released video mentioning a New York attack, officials said. ISIS, the JV team as POTUS Obama calls them, appears to be using the Varsity teams Al-Qaeda playbook by utilizing multiple bombing and automatic weapons firing at multiple locations all at about the same times. Hitting at least three different targets at once is the Al-Qaeda calling card and ISIS used such a game plan in Paris France, is Manhattan next this Thanksgiving along the Macy's parade route?
Far from being "contained," radical Islamic terrorists operating in Syria are "expanding globally and plotting aggressively," Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul told Congress on Wednesday.
"ISIS is now responsible for more than 60 terrorist plots against Western targets, including 18 in the United States," McCaul said. "Here at home, we have arrested more than 70 ISIS supporters over the last year. That's on average more than one per week, and the FBI says it has nearly 1,000 ISIS-related investigations in all 50 states. If this is not a war, then I don't know what is."
