In the most recent edition of the Islamic State’s publication, Dabiq, the main feature article targeted Christians and Jews, saying the Bible and the Torah were filled with lies. The article further claimed that for those who continue to disbelieve in Islam, “You shall be defeated and then dragged all together into Hell.” Counterterrorist experts said the article was tantamount to “declaring war on all of us.”

Also this week in Israel in the News:
