I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: ISIS must be destroyed.
And there’s a whole list of reasons – rape, murder, destruction of historical sites…and cowardice, of course. Anyone who can rape hundreds of women, and then flee a country dressed as a woman, really needs a reckoning with God.
But the biggest reason is this: ISIS continues to try to recruit and train future terrorists to kill innocent Westerners, and other Mideasterners. And that has to stop.
Especially because now they’ve threatened to poison common grocery store items in America.
The Conservative Tribune reports:
The Islamic State group has used a variety of tools in killing those who stand in their way, but their most recent plot to kill Westerners uses something truly horrific — our food.
In an English-language series encouraging lone-wolf jihad, radical Islamists have been advised to inject cyanide poison into food for sale at grocery stores.

You might be wondering how in the world someone would be able to do this. I certainly was.
As it turns out, it might not be that difficult.
The terrorist group reportedly tested the poison method on its prisoners in Mosul. The tests were discovered in a stash of papers at Mosul University after Iraqi special forces liberated the city.
One prisoner was given thallium sulphate — a colorless, tasteless salt that can be dissolved in water — which caused him to suffer fever, nausea and swelling of the stomach and brain before dying 10 days later.
The terrorists also injected a nicotine-based compound into another prisoner who passed out within seconds and died hours later.
That doesn’t sound so bad. It’s not like I can just make thallium sulphate by buying something over the counter.
Ingredients for the poison can be found in cigarettes and vaping supplies, while thallium sulphate is available for sale in many countries, including the U.S.
If it makes you feel any better, there’s no recorded instance of this actually working as an act of terror in any Western country.
If it makes you feel any worse, there’s a first time for everything.
And there’s always the standard precautions you can take, just like you do on Halloween: make sure your candy/food isn’t tampered with. Don’t eat anything with the wrapper broken.
But as far as long-term solutions go, I’d say that ISIS must be destroyed.
