As Christmas Approaches, Islamic State Threatens Christians

Al-Abd Al-Faqir, a media group supported by the Islamic State, published two propaganda posters last month that depict an attack on Pope Francis.

One poster stated “Don’t think you are away from our attacks” and showed a jihadist with an Islamic State wristband and a handgun, taking aim at the pope as he walked by a barbed wire fence on a visit to Auschwitz. The other recent poster, again set at Auschwitz, was addressed to “slaves of the Cross” and depicted an assailant sneaking up on the pope from behind.
