Bankstown boy threatens Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Islamic State recruitment video

A Sydney teenager has emerged as a poster boy for the Islamic State, appearing in a chilling recruitment video threatening Prime Minister Tony Abbott and vowing the militant group will fight until it conquers the West.

Abdullah Elmir, 17, stars in a video posted on the internet overnight on Monday under the nom de guerre “Abu Khaled from Australia”. He is dressed in military gear and holding an assault rifle, surrounded by several dozen heavily armed fellow jihadists.
