Macer Gifford: British anti-terror laws aren’t strong enough
The horrifying image shows a masked militant brandishing a bloody knife in one hand and holding the severed head of Father Christmas in the other. It sickly mimics many of the vile videos the defeated former caliphate released of it killing hostages.
The text on the poster reads: “We send a message to our monotheist brothers in Europe, America, Australia, Canada, Russia, and other countries of unbelief and apostas.
“We say to you, our brothers, oh monotheists, avenge your brothers and sisters who have been killed and captured by these scumbags.
“Attack the citizens of crusader coalition countries with your knives, run them over in the streets, detonate bombs on them, and spray them with bullets.”
Since the collapse of its caliphate in Syria and Iraq in 2017, the terrorist organisation and its supporters have been quieter.

In November, it was revealed ISIS hatched an evil plan to dupe Westerners by advising would-be jihadis to use the Christian cross and shave their beards.

The booklet, called ‘Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen’, had been shared widely on social media, and gave a chilling insight into the levels of preparation and commitment expected of those hoping to cause discontent in Europe.
It surfaced just months after the Paris attacks in 2015.
A 58-page manual emphasises the importance of surprise when launching an attack to cause maximum impact.
It claims home-grown terrorists are less likely to be noticed, and goes on to detail how nightclubs — with loud music and drunk people — are some of the best places to discuss terror plans without being recorded or pried on.

The meaningful component of the booklet stresses the need to blend in with the western way of life, avoiding “looking like a Muslim” in order to stay below the radar of the security sets.
A chilling section urges readers to use a Christian cross, use aftershave, cut off their beards and shun prayer meetings and mosques to avoid detection.
The introduction to the booklet, which has been translated into English for those who do not speak Arabic, says: “No doubt that today, in the era of the lone wolves, brothers in the West need to know some important things about safety in order to ensure success in their operations.
“We thought a lot of non-Arabic speaking brothers would find it interesting and may apply it in their blessed operations.”

It continues: “If you can avoid having a beard, wearing qamis, using miswak and having a booklet of dhikr with you, it’s better.
“It is permissible for you to use a necklace showing a Christian cross.
“As you know, Christians ‒ or already atheist Westerners with Christian background ‒ use crosses on their necklaces.
“But don’t use a cross necklace if you have a Muslim name on your passport, as that may look strange.

“If you have an engagement ring or something like that, it’s better to use one in gold or better however, don’t use any ring at all.
“A silver ring could tell you are religious, as Islam forbids wearing gold rings for men.”
